With the Oscars now over, and putting a cap on the year in movies (for 2011 anyway) it seems now is as good a time as any to see what's happening on the small screen.

The greatest advertising opportunity of the year aka the Super Bowl, is over, and one highly priced team of players beat another highly priced team of players. But as always, it's the ads everyone is talking about anyway, and this year, Hollywood dropped a bunch of cash hoping to lure football lovers to theaters over the next few months.

Exclusive: With his new gonzo babysitter movie "The Sitter" opening up this weekend, we got to sit down and talk with its director, the multitalented David Gordon Green, best known for raunchy studio comedy "Pineapple Express" and most beloved for bittersweet indie romance "All the Real Girls." During the conversation, we had to get the lowdown on a plethora of projects he's been linked to. So, read on for updates on "Suspiria," the recently announced time travel romance "Q," and, in typical David Gordon Green speak, a whole bunch of other shit (including how his comic book horror movie "Freaks of the Heartland" might be headed for animation).

David Gordon Green is the rare (or odd-duck) director that has a preternatural understanding of both the poetic and the absurd. While his career is a head-scratcher to most, the first gift is clearly expressed in his early indie films (especially his Criterion-approved debut "George Washington" and "All The Real Girls") and the latter talent is evinced in his recent spate of studio-endorsed comedies which include “Pineapple Express” and “Your Highness.”

Eclectic Director Talks Horror Remakes That Got It RightFew horror films are as critically revered and fanatically adored as Italian director Dario Argento’s operatic 1977 shocker “Suspiria.” Centered on the witchy goings-on at a prestigious ballet school, it is largely considered one of the scariest movies of all time and served as the chief inspiration for Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-nominated (and similarly nightmarish) “Black Swan.” The idea of remaking “Suspiria” is a daunting one, but that hasn’t deterred David Gordon Green -- the versatile director behind such disparate films as “All the Real Girls,” “Pineapple Express” and "Your Highness" -- from doggedly pursuing an updated version.

As far as comedy team-ups go this is pretty inspiring, though we have to say, the pairing of Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt is also kind of strange too.

Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garbage.

Filmmaker Says The Comedy Is Like 'After Hours' Meets 'Adventures In Babysitting,' But Has Strong Dramatic NotesA funny thing happened to director David Gordon Green ("All The Real Girls," the upcoming "Your Highness") on his detour into the mainstream: he stayed there a little bit longer than he had originally anticipated. "After 'Your Highness' I wanted to do a character piece. I love working with kids, I wanted to be in NYC and I literally had that guideline," Green said in an interview with The Playlist this week. "But at that point I was knew I didn’t want it to be a comedy."
