While "Fight Club" will probably always be the high bar never to be reached again for adaptations of Chuck Palahniuk's work on the big screen, filmmakers will keep trying. "Choke" came and went and was mostly a disappointment, but "Snuff" should be an interesting gamble. The author's book about an aging porn star who decides to cap off her career by having sex with 600 men in one day, with the story told through the eyes of three men who are lining up to do the deed with her, should be challenging to say the least. And while we never thought financing would come through for a project that presumably has a very niche appeal, money is coming.

Saving the world just got a whole lot more....British. Radiohead, already known for their various philanthropic and charitable efforts, and Jude Law have been paired up (kinda) by Greenpeace for "Save The Arctic." The PSA raises awareness about the issue of the fast melting artic region which could leave the lives of polar bears, narwhals, walruses and more in grave danger, along with humans as well, thanks to rising water levels as a result. Radiohead's (overused) "Everything In Its Right Place" (already featured extensively in the solid documentary "The Island President") provides the soundtrack while Law gravely narrates over footage of a CGI polar bear wandering through a deserted, polluted and ugly urban wasteland.

Judgement is indeed coming for "Dredd" and that judgement may not be all good. The upcoming dystopian thriller has not been handled well from minute one outside of hiring Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine") to pen the screenplay and even that may not have helped. Some ask why anyone bothered to make a remake of the Sylvester Stallone’s movie "Judge Dredd," and producers countered that they were going back to the source material and making things -- wait for it -- darker, more violent and more humorous like the comic book.

More Marvel mystery moves as the studio, with just a few weeks before to go before Comic-Con, has shifted its unknown 2014 movie from May 14th to August 1st. So what does this all mean? Who knows. While it was recently reported that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was the title it was keeping secret for that slot (and it's largely expected that it will be 'Guardians'), as usual, the studio has remained tightlipped, so who knows what exactly its cooking up. But the shift is a savvy one.

For fuck's sake, thank God they finally chose someone. After we first reported that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki were in the mix for the role of Johanna Mason in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," it seemed subsequent updates started to drip out, like some kind of slow Chinese water torture. First there was the news that Jena Malone was in the hunt, then the update that the role was going to be going Aggeliki's way (we were also told she was Francis Lawrence's choice), but it appears nobody knows nothing.

“I haven’t gotten the big idea,” David Lynch recently told 24 Frames about the prospect of future movies from the helmer. “I’ve got some fragments that are coming, but not the big idea...If I got an idea that I fell in love with, I’d go to work tomorrow. I just haven’t.” And while that's a bummer, it seems there are still bits of pieces of the director's work that are worth revisiting.

Yeah, we know. It's been exactly 0.5 seconds since the last "The Dark Knight Rises" update, but we both know that the movie can't get here soon enough, so let's just get on with it.

We're a few short weeks from Comic-Con, where geeks will have their minds blown by cosplay girls by oodles of footage, images and other goodies unveiled by studios and filmmakers, as they hawk their genre wares. And Guillermo del Toro, a longstanding fixture in San Diego, is set to return, but this time with a brand new film, his first since 2008's "Hellboy II: The Golden Army." And while there will likely be much more on the Comic-Con floor, we'll take what we can get for now.

He made Mayberry home to all of America, he dispensed justice as Ben Matlock and along the way, became one of the most beloved film actors of all time. But sadly, Andy Griffith has passed away today at the age of 86.
