It's hard to argue that in 2012, there were few people on television (Charlie Sheen aside perhaps, but for different reasons) who were as talked about as "Girls" writer/actor/producer Lena Dunham. The brainchild behind HBO's breakout hit show, Dunham has had a tremendous year all around and Time Magazine has taken notice. They've named her The Coolest Person Of The Year.

You want to know how popular "Les Miserables" is? Not only is it the biggest advance ticket seller this Christmas, it has broken the previous record held by "Sherlock Holmes." So yes, a lot of people will be going to see the epic musical next week, but in case you need an extra nudge to get off the couch and go, another trailer has arrived.

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.

With Christmas landing on Tuesday this year, it's a big opening day for a handful of films, but given that it's coming midweek, studios are giving just an extra little push and reminder, before audiences settle in for the holidays. Perhaps the hardest sell of any movie arriving in theaters is the slavery/western epic "Django Unchained" from Quentin Tarantino, but a couple of intriguing new looks from the movie have arrived.

Easily, hands down, the best movie I saw at TIFF this year, and already with a place reserved on my Best Of 2013, Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines" is, as I wrote in my review, "a brilliant, towering picture." And yes, that quote has been surprisingly pulled for the trailer. And yes, this latest reunion between "Blue Valentine" helmer Cianfrance and Ryan Gosling is a knockout.

As we head into 2013, here's one resolution we're calling for: no more directors acting in their own movies. No matter what you think of "Django Unchained," it's hard to argue that Quentin Tarantino's cameo as an Australian (!?) cowboy is nothing short of embarrassing. And now we have Eli Roth as...a quippy, cool as fuck horror lead? We would say the acting is bad, but we can't tell if the horrible dialogue is making it worse.

2013 looks to be a particularly exciting year for feature animation, with new efforts from almost all the major animation houses, some hotly anticipated sequels (hello, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”), features from some of our favorite filmmakers (Chris Sanders, Hayao Miyazaki) and even a brand new Disney princess movie (“Frozen,” which from everything we’ve heard is going to be ah-mah-zing). One of the bigger question marks for the 2013 slate, though, has been “Turbo,” DreamWorks Animation’s story of a speed-racing snail.

It's kind of a bummer to see so many dismissing Terrence Malick's upcoming "To the Wonder" with jokes about shots of wheat fields and sighs over the trademark camerawork he employs with Emmanuel Lubezski. But it speaks to the film itself, which is free from cynicism, and a deeply earnest and soulful look at love and loss, which some may have let their guard down to embrace.

Watch: Trailer For 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' Features Steve Carell, Jim Carrey & Lots Of Spray Tan

While Steve Carell has been positioned as the next big comedy star, the projects he's chosen have been disappointments for the most part. For every "Crazy Stupid Love" there has been a "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," while an ambitious concept like "Dinner For Schmucks" (a remake of much better and excellent French film "The Dinner Game") may have done decently at the box office (barely) but wasn't exactly all that memorable. Now comes "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," another big idea comedy that unfortunately looks pretty tedious.

"The End Of The World" is coming, and no, we're not talking about the Mayan nonsense that has tinfoil hat types stocking up on batteries and water. We're talking about Seth Rogen's directorial debut (he shares the chair with longtime writing collaborator Evan Goldberg, and yes, they both penned the script), the apocalypse comedy that's now called "This Is The End." And the first red band spot is here.
