Although the role was originally tipped for Jessica Chastain -- who we love -- it would seem that her subsequent replacement, Naomi Watts, is proving to be the perfect fit for "Caught In Flight." It looks like lensing has begun on the film, the first set pic has dropped, and yeah, Watts is dead ringer for Princess Diana, in a film that will surely draw attention and perhaps some controversy.

Perhaps aware that a spaghetti western -- even if directed by Quentin Tarantino, who is a brand name director now -- centered around the subject of slavery might be a tricky sell, The Weinstein Company are getting the marketing campaign out early for the film that won't be arriving until Christmas. But that means even for all the advertising, the footage for now will remain the same until the movie is closer to completion (or until Comic-Con where Tarantino will be making an appearance).

Everybody loves “Downton Abbey,” don’t they? If you’re not a fan then I guarantee your friend is. Or your parents. Or your grandparents. Or your little sister. For some reason, the British period drama seems to have struck a chord with viewers of all ages on both sides of the pond, and as a result it shouldn’t come as a surprise that anyone involved with the show has found their stock steadily rising in tandem with the acclaim for the show.

So, what would director Pascal Laugier do next after delivering the divisive and extreme "Martyrs" back in 2008? Well, you if thought he might try and top his last effort, or perhaps take on something with equal thematic weight, you might be mistaken, as he's taken a tentative step toward the mainstream with "The Tall Man" starring none other than Jessica Biel. A brand new international trailer and a couple of new posters have landed for the movie as it gears up to head into theaters.

It hit U.K. cinemas last summer and went on to become the third highest grossing film of the year in that territory, with a staggering $71 million take at the domestic box office (placing behind only “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part Two)” and “The King’s Speech” in 2011). It wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster, but rather the big-screen spin-off of a smutty teen comedy, which had aired just 18 half-hour episodes on a niche British TV Channel, E4. “The Inbetweeners Movie” was a surprise success to say the least, and on September 7th it will be time to see whether U.S. audiences react as positively to the four lads who embark on a holiday filled with “sun, sea, sex, booze, sex, minge, fanny and tits...and booze...and sex.”

The old men of summer are back, having rubbed in the gallons of Ben-Gay and endured the hernias for "The Expendables 2," the most expendable movie since the last one. And now a new clip has come along to highlight just how potentially terrible this will be.

As regular readers already know, we'll pretty much watch anything with the talented Rebecca Hall, and while her choices can sometimes be spotty ("Lay The Favorite," "A Bag Of Hammers") she's always a worthwhile presence. And thus our interest in the period-horror piece "The Awakening," which on the face of it looks fairly standard but as the trailer reveals, promises to be something with a bit more meat on its bones.

Jonathan Caouette made a name for himself some years back with his debut feature "Tarnation," a manic, prodding look into his family, created on the cheap using home videos and the trusty iMovie program. His stock blew up, and a successful screening at the Sundance Film Festival eventually lead to him helming the "All Tomorrow's Parties" documentary and a personal horror short "All Flowers In Time."

Frankly, you could shoot Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn doing their taxes, then mowing the lawn and having a nap, and we'd probably watch it and love it. Those dudes crack us up ("Wedding Crashers" rules, "Starsky & Hutch" is pretty hilarious) so thank God for Shawn Levy (wow, never thought we'd type that out) for bringing them together again in "The Internship." And he's not skimping on the supporting cast either.

Bet you forgot all about this one. Don't worry, so did we. First announced just over a year ago, "The Two Faces Of January" has some very strong talent behind it. First off, it's got a script by "Drive" writer Hossein Amini, and second Viggo Mortensen -- who is pickier than a five-year-old at a salad bar -- signed on to star. And then? Nothing. Financing was needed. But it looks like things are starting to happen, as casting is gearing up again with a start date now in sight.
