As usual, every year when the Super Bowl comes around, the ads that air during the big game wind up becoming one of the bigger talking points with everybody the next day. A recent trend for some of these advertisers lately has been airing commercials that tease their upcoming commercials that will air during the Super Bowl. Yes, commercials teasing about future commercials, what a concept. Samsung has decided to join in on this trend, but at least their teaser is amusing and features Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk.

While it took Alexander Payne seven years between his smash hit "Sideways" and last year's very successful "The Descendants," the good news for fans is that the director is moving right along to his next movie. "Nebraska" has been brewing for a while, and was finally officially greenlit last month, with Payne nabbing Bruce Dern and Will Forte as the two leads in his low budget, $13 million black and white film. And with pre-production well underway, a few more names have come on aboard.

While primarily known for her genre roles in films ranging from "Final Destination 3" to "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" to "The Thing," Mary Elizabeth Winstead got a chance to prove to audiences she's got acting skills to go along with her ass-kicking skills and good looks, impressing audiences earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival in the alcoholism drama "Smashed." And it seems that entire experience was a good one for Winstead, as she's lending her talents to that film's writer/director James Ponsoldt's next effort, "The Spectacular Now," which is already moving ahead.

"The Dark Knight Rises" isn't the only bit of popular entertainment out there that is causing those who have yet to see it -- which is most of us -- to keep their Facebook page closed, and Twitter feed turned off for fear of spoilers. "Breaking Bad" is back with the first eight of the final sixteen episode season airing this summer, with the show off and running this past weekend, and if you're not caught up, you may want to avoid as much chatter about the series as possible. But once the show ends, is that it for Walter White and rest of the characters? Perhaps not. Bryan Cranston has already teased about the possibility of movie followup once the show is done, and it looks like another character might be getting their own vehicle.
