Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, THE REVENANT
So, no more problems then? It was only on Friday when yellow cards (sorry, still suffering from World Cup fever) were being thrown at Alejandro González Iñárritu's "The Revenant," which found a major financial backer pulling out, and some apparent concerns over the director's desire to shoot in sequence. But it looks like Megan Ellison's intervention has saved the day, as the movie now has a release date.

Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, THE REVENANT
With a prime opening slot for "Birdman" at the Venice Film Festival next month, things look to be going pretty well for Alejandro González Iñárritu, and he even has "The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy gearing up to shoot this fall. Or does he?

Birdman,
Well, our week just got a whole lot better, because the trailer (and poster) for one of our most anticipated films of the year has arrived. We've been enormously curious about "Birdman," partly because it's the latest film from one of our favorites, Alejandro Alejandro González Iñárritu (or Alejandro G. Iñárritu, as the trailer now bills him), and partly because the film promised to be something of a departure, apparently a more comic vibe for a filmmaker whose work before now, like "Amores Perros," "21 Grams," "Babel" and "Biutiful," has tended towards the bleak.

Leonardo DiCaprio will star in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film “The Revenant”
Even though we were a little bummed by the word that Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" won't be premiering at Cannes, another piece of news has buoyed our spirits. You may have forgotten, but way back in 2011, Iñárritu was attached to direct "The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio slated to star (Sean Penn was also linked). Not much else was heard after that, but the project is now fully back on.

Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s BIRDMAN.
In a few days the Cannes Film Festival will announce their slate, and while we have our guesses as to what movies will feature on the Croisette, one film that was widely expected to showcase in the south of France won't be in the lineup.

Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s BIRDMAN.
The wacky, theater-based, somewhat-meta comedy is tough trick to pull off, but we'll be damned if Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu isn't pulling together a helluva cast together to try and make his upcoming "Birdman" work. Before we even get to that, we're just excited to see Iñárritu shift gear completely and move away from his trademark heavy drama into what could possibly be his own "I Heart Huckabees." Or something. Either way, the possibilities for this being awesome are certainly up there, and we have our fingers crossed and undoubtedly, these set photos have stoked our excitement a little bit more.

There is a reason everyone you know is talking about "True Detective": it's that fucking good. With two episodes to go on HBO's breakout hit, and frontrunner for TV show of the year (and hell, the damn-thing-you'll-watch-in-any-medium of the year), the focus is turning to toward writer Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Fukunaga, who collaborated to put forth a singular, riveting vision for their Southern philosophical mystery. Far from an ordinary procedural, certainly not a noir, and fairly uncategorizable—that's what makes the show so special.

It seemed improbable that arthouse fave Alejandro González Iñárritu would tackle a big studio tentpole, but last month that seemed to be the case when reports surfaced he was circling "The Jungle Book" at Warner Bros. But indeed, Iñárrituu won't be going blockbuster any time soon as he's bounced from the project, leaving Warner Bros. to find another director for the Callie Kloves-penned take on the public domain material.

With the whole Occupy Wall Street thing touching on pop culture in fits and starts (it recently served as a pretty poor subplot during the last season of "The Newsroom"), it was only a matter of time before it became the central focus of a movie or series. And it's the latter, where an acclaimed filmmaker will get dive deep into the subject.

Guillermo del Toro Hasn't Seen 'The Hobbit' Yet, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu Helped Him Cut 10 Minutes Out Of 'Pacific Rim'

So Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" (our review) storms into theatres on Friday tonight, with screenings starting at 7 PM, and while critical consensus is leaning in his favour, it remains to be seen if audiences want to see robots smash monsters or watch Salma Hayek getting farted on in Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" (yes, really). But no matter how the box officed plays out, Del Toro has many irons in the fire (he's producing and direct the pilot of "The Strain" next, with his next feature "Crimson Peak" shooting in early 2014) and in between all that he's likely busy with a dozen other things we don't even know about yet. But things might have been very different had he stuck around to direct "The Hobbit" films (he bailed when MGM was in near financial ruin and their future was in doubt) but has he been in a rush to see what Peter Jackson has done?
