Things are going very, very well for Channing Tatum right now. Like some kind of bizarro world Taylor Kitsch, he's opened two movies this year to over $100 million—"The Vow" and "21 Jump Street"—with "Magic Mike" likely to reach that mark as well. It's even more remarkable considering it's across three different genres: romance, comedy and uh, stripping. And his upcoming calendar is looking very good as well, with production on Roland Emmerich's actioner "White House Down" to kick off next month, the Wachowskis sci-fi "Jupiter Ascending" following in the fall and Bennett Miller's true story crime tale "Foxcatcher" after that. But Tatum is continuing to strike while the iron is hot.

The rehabilitation/comeback of Lindsay Lohan has been... unpredictable, at best. But Lord knows she's trying. This spring she hit "Saturday Night Live" for an uneven hosting gig, and earlier this summer she wrapped the contentious shoot of the Lifetime celeb-ploitation flick "Liz & Dick," which had its own share of production isses. Currently, she's in pre-production on Paul Schrader's micro-indie erotic thriller "The Canyons." Her next move? No, it's not another one of her bi-weekly photo sessions with Terry Richardson. It's potentially a role in a wheezing comedy franchise. Guess you can't argue that she's selective...

So is Joe Swanberg selling out, or is Anna Kendrick slumming it? Perhaps it's somewhere in the middle for both these talents, but if you told us before today that these two would be working together on a movie, we would've laughed.

Multi-hyphenate Eli Roth certainly hasn't just been lazing about over the past decade—he tackled a sizeable role as the Bear Jew in buddy Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds," kick-started a new horror franchise as a producer with "The Last Exorcism," and soon will even be starring in Chilean earthquake thriller "Aftershock" (which he also produced)—but he has been absent from the director's chair since 2007's "Hostel: Part 2." While many are divided on whether Roth is a genre maven or just a lucky hack, there's no denying he's had a solid fan base hounding for an extension of his "Grindhouse" faux trailer "Thanksgiving" for some time now, with Roth even looking to expand the scope of his filmmaking with a big budget sci-fi picture entitled "Endangered Species." Word has been quiet on both those fronts, but now a little news has stirred up that could have Roth finally directing on a much larger scale.

“Bad Teacher” director Jake Kasdan is obviously doing something right because he’s a man who’s seemingly in high demand at the moment. He’s currently attached to direct the Shawn Levy-produced adaptation of “Man Made,” “Sex Tape” with Jason Segel, a Warner Bros action-comedy called “Family Getaway,” and an untitled project with his "Bad Teacher" writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. That’s what happens, we suppose, when your R-rated comedy rakes in over $200 million.

They’re a punk rock band from the late 80s named after their great love of sweet Mary Jane, but during their 25-year history Green Day developed much loftier ambitions for their music. After releasing American Idiot back in 2004 (which spawned a Broadway musical and now has a film adaptation in the works) and 21st Century Breakdown in 2009, the band is now planning to release three new albums between September 2012 and January 2013. The film-related news accompanying those three albums -- titled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! -- is that two documentaries will be made to go alongside their release.

While the movies have generally favored older men chasing younger women, often to comedic effect, the reverse rarely gets explored. And when it does, it's certainly not with the emotional weight and insight of Todd Louiso's "Hello, I Must Be Going."

There are few directors as secretive as Christopher Nolan, so when a little nugget of info that drops seemingly be accident, it tends to get latched on to. And while Nolan hasn't said what he plans post-Batman -- he recently told "Nightline" he didn't have anything immediate (see below) -- it looks like his closest collaborators may have an inkling.

An ensemble comedy that takes place mostly on a plane, Pedro Almodovar's 19th feature-length effort "I'm So Excited" ("Los Amantes Pasajeros" which translates more literally into "The Passenger's Love"), looks as if it's going to harken back to his early days of camp, kitsch and outrageous humor. At any rate, it definitely appears that it's going to pop with the director's usual riot of color. While the film was originally said to be set against a plane accident with various characters fearing for the lives and confessing their inner secrets, few other details have been provided since.
