However Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" turns out, it seems the movie has made theater owners very happy. In case you missed it, over the weekend reports surfaced that distributors were encouraging the director to make a sequel to the movie, which is apparently doing quite well in China and Hong Kong, and moreover, that he's considering it. But for now, he's got some other things on his mind, namely the Berlin International Film Festival which starts on Thursday, where he'll not only be presiding over the jury, but he'll have this film kick off the fest.

Going in front of cameras all the way back in the summer of 2011, it has been an unusually long wait for HBO's starry "Phil Spector," with Al Pacino in the juicy lead role, alongside Helen Mirren, in a movie written and directed by none other than David Mamet. And yet, wait is what we've done, but the film is finally on the way this year, and if you imagined it would be largely a wigged Pacino yelling, well, it kinda is...

You gotta admire John Sayles. An independent filmmaker long before today's current crop -- or even the directors who rose up out of the '90s scene -- his career has had its peaks and valleys, but over the past few years he's resolutely strived on, even if audiences and the industry haven't followed. His last couple pictures -- the bluesy "Honeydripper" and the sorely underseen historical drama "Amigo" -- came and went without much notice, but he's likely hoping the fates have better things in store for his next effort, "GO FOR SISTERS" (yes, all caps).

So you spend millions and million of dollars on a Super Bowl spot, only to have every other rival studio drop their ads right at the same time. Smart marketing? We'll let the accountants sort it out, but Marvel is hoping to transform jocks into nerds with this Super Bowl spot.

Fans of Neil Jordan know that his upcoming "Byzantium" certainly isn't his first time around the bloodsucker block. But the ever curious director was intrigued to try and shake things up, even though it seemed like familiar territory. "It was a chance to return to the territory of 'Interview With the Vampire' and 'The Company of Wolves,' " he told us at TIFF last fall. "I think the whole thing was a great opportunity to really reinvent the vampire legend really. It's become a bit tired of late, you know?" Well, you can see if he succeeded as the first international trailer has made its way online.

If Pedro Almodovar needed to do something lighter after "The Skin I Live In," and perhaps a movie not as layered as "Broken Embraces," we understand. And indeed, he's gone and knocked out a movie closer in spirit to his more anarchic early work ("Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown" is said to be a comparison point), than his later projects. "I'm So Excited" is all big colors and bold music and a new trailer has arrived to serve up another little teaser.
