It’s been a red meat kinda year at the box office. The number one slot at the box office has been taken over by an R-rated action movie five times thus far, the latest example being hoo-rah Navy SEALs film “Act of Valor”. With constant studio waffling over ratings, mid-budgeted fare like “Contraband” and “Safe House” have still handily trumped PG-13 four-quadrant "alleged" blockbusters like “This Means War” and “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” all year long despite the supposed ratings handicap. And those films all had noted stars, familiar leading men and women, while “Act of Valor” is populated entirely by real armed forces.

Good Friday (oops, that was totally accidental), everyone. The Fat Tuesday spirit is now gone, no more flaming skull heads riding motorcyles for us. Nope, it's just Tyler Perry films and fish out of water comedies. They are making us give up Nic Cage for Lent and I just can't stand it. This weekend we have ensemble comedy "Wanderlust," one Mister "Tyler Perry's Good Deeds" and a few other curios and offerings for your cinematic palate.

2012 is just a few days away, and there are a slew of new posters for films that will be released in the new year (assuming none of them switch over to The Weinstein Company, at which point, their release dates will be changed seven times before the film is inevitably dumped on Blu-ray. What up, “Shanghai”!).

When "Dear John" and "Letters to Juliet" proved sleeper hits last year, it looked like Amanda Seyfried might be on her way to becoming a pretty massive star, and arriving on the back of her starring role alongside Meryl Streep in musical smash "Mamma Mia," it all seemed to be coming up Seyfried. But the actress hasn't had such a good time of it lately. She's tried to step away from the romance genre with fairy tale flick "Red Riding Hood" and sci-fi "In Time," but neither performed especially well, suggesting that if she is a draw, the audiences aren't turning up to see her sight-unseen.

When we first heard about the thriller "Gone," we thought it sounded a little low-rent, and with new cast members coming on board, that feeling hasn't quite dissipated.

With "Big Love" now behind her, Amanda Seyfried will be breaking out on the big screen in 2011. She's got two high profile projects hitting theaters this year, Catherine Hardwicke's reworked fairy tale "Red Riding Hood" and Andrew Niccol's sci-fi thriller "Now."
