So, is "End Of Watch" yet another familiar cop drama from David Ayer just dressed up in POV/found footage aesthetics or does it truly have something new to say about being a cop in Los Angeles? We'll find out soon enough, but as this new trailer bears out, it certainly won't be lacking energy.

Is it just us who find it increasingly hard to get enthused about James Franco's new projects? We appreciate his broad-mindedness; the way he can go from blockbusters like "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" to cheap action movies like the Jason Statham vehicle "Homefront" to indies like "About Cherry" to his own experimental directorial efforts like "Sal." But it's partly the sheer volume of the announcements -- with something new coming every few days, seemingly -- and partly how obscure some of them sound, that's given us something close to Franco fatigue.

Paul Haggis' next film, "Third Person," seems to be moving onward in fits and starts. With sporadic updates throughout last year, this spring the movie started firmly moving foward when Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde boarded, with Jude Law rumored for a part as well and then....not much else. But it seems the wheels are turning once again with some exciting new names now ready to lend their talents.

It’s been five years since “Into The Wild," but Sean Penn is headed back to the director's chair and is gearing up to helm a big-screen adaptation of Norman Ollstead’s memoir “Crazy For The Storm.” And it looks like he's found his lead in Josh Brolin.

It looks like the wheels are turning fast on the unnecessary sequel to the solid and entertaining "Finding Nemo." Last month, Andrew Stanton found some post-"John Carter" employment as the director of the upcoming movie, and now, one of the most treasured characters from the first movie is set to return.

Disney Preparing 'The Rocketeer' For A Reboot

When Joe Johnston was first announced as the director for "Captain America: The First Avenger," folks were worried. He was coming off the disastrous "The Wolfman," and hadn't really had a hit since 2001's "Jurassic Park III" (which wasn't much to shout about). But the geek crowd -- and Kevin Feige himself -- pointed to "The Rocketeer" as evidence that he was the right man for the job. And indeed he was. The 1991 film shares a lot of the homespun humor, patriotic pride and yes, WWII setting found in 'Captain America,' and of course, it featured the requisite thrills as well. It's a favorite among the geek set, a film beloved by many and now it seems it's getting a remake.

Considering every actor who signs in blood for a Marvel is usually optioned for numerous flicks, this bit of news hardly comes as a surprise, though it is interesting to note how much the stature of Kat Dennings has changed in just a short year.

Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clark are the Bondurant boys in the upcoming "Lawless." And as the trio sling moonshine as prohibition winds to a close, shifting tides of power put their operation and very lives at risk in John Hillcoat's both beautiful and brutal new film where blood and alcohol flow freely.

Who does he think he is? Woody Allen? It seems Terrence Malick is using his engimatic appeal and auteur status to basically get whoever the hell he wants for "Knight Of Cups." It seems that if you happen to be nearby where he's shooting, and you're a celebrity, you can get a part in the film. And another name has joined the ranks.

After this fall's "Rise of the Guardians" (which, it should be noted, has nothing to do with anthropomorphic owls), DreamWorks Animation product will no longer be distributed by Paramount, its home for the past seven years. DreamWorks Animation head Jeffrey Katzenberg promised Wall Street wonks that a deal would be forged by Labor Day, and for a while it looked like Sony would end up distributing their films, but Deadline is reporting that Fox stepped up and provided a more appealing deal, with an emphasis on distribution through digital channels.
