Some will say he looks beefed-up, but the fact of the matter is Joseph Gordon-Levitt is under quite a bit of practical prosthetics to make him look more like Bruce Willis. Wait, what? Well, backing up a second, this is your first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Rian Johnson's ("Brick," "The Brothers Bloom") much-anticipated sci-fi film, "Looper." In the high-concept picture that plays around with screwy time-travel conceits, Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman from the future who works for the mob and recognizes one of his targets as his future self.

Bruce Willis has been cast in an action-thriller and not some moody, Oscar-worthy, think piece? Surely you jest! While it’s true Willis has a pretty diverse career, even with upcoming features like Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” and Rian Johnson’s sci-fi film “Looper,” the action-thriller genre has been Willis’ bread and butter ever since he muttered the phrase “Yippie Kay Yay…”

Considering he made one of the best comedies of the last twenty years, you'd have thought Dean Parisot would be a bigger name by now. After making his debut with the Drew Barrymore vehicle "Home Fries," the helmer was gifted a near-perfect script in the sci-fi comedy "Galaxy Quest," about the crew of a "Star Trek"-style TV series who find themselves thrust into a real-life space adventure, and went on to cast it impeccably, with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell, and directing it with visual panache and a real flair for comedy.

Many rock stars want to be actors, despite having no real capacity for it, while conversely, many actors would like to be singers, again, without necessarily having the ability to carry a tune. Among them is Bruce Willis, who inexplicably had a successful album, "The Return of Bruno," in the 1980s. Fortunately, we've been spared his vocal stylings for a while on screen, but our time of rest is over; if you've ever wanted to hear John McClane take on The Hollies' "The Air That I Breathe," 1) You're in luck, and 2) What's wrong with you?

If anything, Rian Johnson is no stranger to ambition. For his debut feature he put hard boiled noir dialogue in the mouths of teenagers in "Brick" and he followed that up with the Euro-flavored heist tale, "The Brothers Bloom." And in 2012, the director returns with "Looper" a time traveling sci-fi tale that, as usual, is so much more than the premise indicates.

Listen. Carefully. On the wind. Can you hear something? A creak of bone. A distant cough. Someone complaining that they haven't taken their pills, asking if you remembered to record "NCIS," and saying how their grandkids are going to show them how to use the Google. That's right, Sylvester Stallone and his buddies are rolling back into town.

If "The Expendables" meant anything (and, aside from some serviceable action sequences, it didn't really), it was a chance to see a group of action icons interacting with each other, with several scenes imbued with the baggage brought from the filmographies of all those involved. Come for the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, stay for the Gary Daniels! Sylvester Stallone and company have listened to the complaints, bringing back the entire cast for "The Expendables 2" and giving some of them more to do than to just sit around and chat.

Get it!? It's like catch-22 but like, with a gun! It's a pun! Yep, "Catch .44" is the name of this (pretty much) straight-to-DVD effort starring Bruce Willis and for those of you who are bowing at the altar of Megan Ellison, let it be known that this is an Annapurna Production. Nobody is perfect.

Exclusive: One of the reasons we're more excited for "Moonrise Kingdom" than we have been for any Wes Anderson film in a decade is the cast. While a few of Anderson's usual repertory company -- most notably Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzmann, are returning -- the leads, a twelve-year-old boy and girl, are newcomers (Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward), and the supporting cast are made up of some intriguing new names, including Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Frances McDormand.
