There are few people who love Michael Jackson as much as Spike Lee, and even while his mooted “Brooklyn Loves MJ” was unable to get off the ground, he's found another way to express his admiration for the performer. Following a series of strong festival showings this past summer and fall, ABC has started to spread word about his Jackson doc, “Bad 25,” slating a TV airing this holiday season.

A comedy centered on two very different sisters, featuring a solid cast including Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber, Melonie Diaz, Geoffrey Arend and Timothy Busfield, the Sundance rom-com "Save the Date" has been rather quiet since it premiered in Utah earlier this year. But IFC Films, releasing the picture later this fall, is finally bringing their campaign to life. Directed by Michael Mohan ("One Too Many Mornings") the first trailer for the film has arrived and it quotes our review from Sundance where we described it as an "endearing" picture that "other rom-coms should aspire to be." And indeed, it does look charming while still containing some emotional depth and smarts.

When the squeeze is on, everyone suffers. That is just one of the overarching themes of Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," a hard-boiled crime tale that has bigger thematic ambitions. Brad Pitt stars as Jackie Cogan, a hitman and enforcer who subcontracts out a kill and watches as the events around the heist of a high stakes card game has repercussions both up and down the criminal chain of command. As we noted at Cannes, it's a brilliant movie, and Pitt recently discussed how Dominik chose to approach the film.

Don't like Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher? Well how about Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Vince Vaughn, Will Smith or Jamie Foxx? Author Lee Child tells Playboy that those were some of the names that were "interested" at one time or another. And while fans have cried foul that Cruise doesn't match the physique that the writer laid out for Reacher in his novels, Child is candid about the process of selecting Cruise, and is ultimately thrilled he took the part.

"People were shrieking, screaming, laughing, and generally going ape," we reported from the floor of the New York Comic Con this weekend. And while that may be true before and after the trailer for the "Evil Dead" remake, during it you could hear a pin drop as fans waited to see if Sam Raimi had delivered something worthy of his original more than three decades ago.

We're not sure if we'd go far as to describe it as 'troubled,' but "Gangster Squad" certainly hasn't had the best luck. The period actioner, directed by "Zombieland" helmer Ruben Fleischer, was one of Warner Bros' great hopes for 2012, with an A-list cast assembled including Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin and Sean Penn. But after the Aurora shootings in July, the studio made the decision to pull advertising for the movie, delay the release from September until January, and reshoot the ending (which was originally a gunfight in a movie theater).
