"Avengers assemble!" Okay, not quite, but it looks Black Widow and The Incredible Hulk are going to get their own spinoff (but not really).

If there's one potentially awful big screen remake of a classic (maybe the word classic should have been in ironic quotes) that we're looking forward to, it's "21 Jump Street." There's really no reason this thing should work - it's a comedic take on a dramatic series, which worked out so well for "Starsky & Hutch;" it co-stars the frequently wooden Channing Tatum; and it just reeks of a kind of desperate nostalgia. That said: we cannot wait. And now we have a new-ish trailer and poster to hold us over. Also, some new footage from "The Avengers" comes courtesy of a German trailer that seems awfully strident and authoritarian.

Scarlett Johansson Was Unsure About 'We Bought A Zoo' At First; Says 'Summer Crossing' Doesn't Have A Part For A Big Star

It's hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson is only 27 years old. The actress carries herself with the air and beauty of an old-school movie star, but has the wit and wisdom of your favorite drinking buddy. What she's accomplished so far on the big screen is impressive, and what's more exciting is that we're only at the beginning of what is likely be a long, varied and fascinating career. A testament to how diverse she has become can be seen in her next trio of movies -- Cameron Crowe's holiday crowd-pleaser "We Bought A Zoo"; the geek fave "The Avengers" and Jonathan Glazer's sci-fi indie "Under The Skin" -- but as she reveals to Vanity Fair in a recent profile, the material comes first.

For a brief moment there, it seemed like Scarlett Johansson and Woody Allen were inseparable. Starring in (almost) three straight movies for the director -- "Match Point," "Scoop" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (Allen also delivered "Cassandra's Dream" in that stretch) -- the actress was part of the director's late stage career return to glory after nearly a decade marked by a series of increasingly bad films. But after that trio of pictures, they parted ways at Allen's insistence, fearing that the actress would become defined only by her work with him.

When it was first announced this summer that "Sexy Beast" and "Birth" director Jonathan Glazer was finally getting to work on his long-awaited next film this fall, we had our doubts. "Under The Skin" had been brewing for a while -- it was once lined up for 2010 shoot, and Gemma Arterton was mooted for the lead -- so while we were excited, we tempered our enthusiasm a bit because particularly with indie financing the way it is, a lot of things could happen between then and now to put the project on hold yet again. But lo and behold, not only has the October start stuck, the film is now shooting and the first glimpse of Scarlett Johansson in the starring role has made its way online.

Even though she might have been too sexy for David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," Scarlett Johansson is just right for fashion house Dolce & Gabbana and this new ad finds the actress playing a version of herself in the short film/advertisment "The One."

David Fincher Says Despite A Great Audition, Scarlett Johansson Was Too Hot To Play Lisbeth Salander

David Fincher Views The Series As A "Pervy Franchise"While Rooney Mara eventually won the coveted lead role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," it was an arduous wait and the list of the contenders was fierce. Sarah Snook, Sophie Lowe and Léa Seydoux were said to be the final candidates, and a mix of established and lesser known names like Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson, Mia Wasikowska, Emily Browning and Katie Jarvis were all in the running at various points. However, people might remember that just before Mara snagged the part, Scarlett Johansson was surprisingly being tipped as a "shoo-in." At the time it seemed somewhat unlikely, but talking to Vogue magazine as part of a profile on Rooney Mara, Fincher confirms that Johansson did indeed deliver strongly at the audition but that she was ultimately just too darned attractive to play the squirrely, oddball and rebellious Lisbeth Salander.

It's been six long years since we last saw a Cameron Crowe (fictional) film on screen, but seeing that that film was the, frankly, disastrous "Elizabethtown," he's perhaps been missed less than he might have been otherwise. Still, the writer-director has enough great work behind him that we're always going to be interested in what he's putting out, and this Christmas sees the arrival of comeback film "We Bought A Zoo," which sees him team up with Matt Damon for the first time.
