This is what a tax write-off looks like folks. While the "Scary Movie" franchise to date has been mind-bogglingly successful, with the last entry earning $90 million at the box office, for this latest installment (without series lead Anna Faris) it seems the Weinsteins have lost all interest is producing another hit, and mostly just want to keep the brand going. Cheap, featuring a bunch of no names along with cameos from the likes of Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Katt Williams who will be using the paycheques to pay any past or future lawyers fees, the new trailer for "Scary Movie 5" shows how low the bar the go.

Are you ready to tumble down into the mind of Charles Swan? Self-obsessed, selfish, a bit of trainwreck...undoubtedly there will be many making the Sheen/Swan connection, but if anything, the first trailer for "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" firmly establishes that this is very much a Roman Coppola movie.

Roman Coppola may only be on his second directorial feature, but as a music video and commercials director, and as a writer and frequent Wes Anderson collaborator, not to mention handling the second unit on various films from his famous family members, he has certainly amassed a wealth of filmic experience. All of which he brings to bear on "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," which premieres tonight at the Rome Film Festival. Destined to be a crowd-pleaser, for its many celebrity cameos, quirky and apropos Liam Hayes music, and lovingly detailed 70s-influenced stylization, the films affords many glossy, knowing pleasures, and we found ourselves really wanting to love it. But that deeper level of engagement just didn't kick in for us, for two main reasons: the lack of a strong narrative through line and the lack of dimensionality to the central titular character. The film delivers on its title, but it turns out we need more than just a glimpse.

Renaissance man Roman Coppola hasn't directed a feature-length movie since the highly underrated "CQ" in 2001, so it's with eager anticipation we look forward to his latest, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." The director may not have helmed a feature in eleven years, but he's been busy, producing his sister Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," co-writing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and shooting second-unit photography for both these filmmakers and his father Francis Ford Coppola (not to mention shooting tons of great music videos in the interim too).

In the rotating cycle of raging showbiz personas, Charlie Sheen has outshone Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin by not only shouting incoherently at things, but also expressing himself to the attention of 4.53 million viewers. After pulling in those numbers -- the largest audience for a primetime sitcom ever (round of applause) -- FX's “Anger Management” has become the network's newest ratings darling, and they've reacted accordingly with a massive extension for the next few years.

One film we had hoped would make an appearance on the fall festival slate this year was Roman Coppola's first film in over a decade, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." And while that hasn't happened, we suppose the next best thing has come along -- the first official images from the '70s-set comedy.

With the fall film festival line-ups now pretty much all revealed, it seems we may have to wait until 2013 to see the sophomore directorial effort of Roman Coppola. It's been over ten years since the deliciously twisted "CQ," but Coppola has now brought together a great cast that includes Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza and Mary Elizabeth Winstead for what he describes as "a guy's point of a view of a break-up" in "A Glimpse Into The Mind Of Charlie Swan III." In an interview with GQ, however, Coppola provided a little update on the pic regarding music, noting that he "used exclusively the music of Liam Hayes" having been "absorbed" by his tunes.

Quick, can you name the people killed off in the opening of the four "Scary Movie" films to date? If you answered Carmen Electra, Natasha Lyonne, Jenny McCarthy, Pamela Anderson, Shaquille O'Neal and Dr. Phil, then this bit of news might be of importance to you. It will also be a spoiler as well.

Although “Machete” wasn’t a runaway success at the box-office ($44m worldwide), critically it was met with cautiously optimistic reviews, it didn't cost all that much, and it seems that was enough for Robert Rodriguez to plough ahead with a sequel. You know, because he can. The end credits promised that Machete would return in “Machete Kills” and “Machete Kills Again” (in space?) and we’re slowly moving closer towards the former of those happening.
