Before he suits up for his third and last time as Batman in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," Christian Bale headed halfway around the world to do something quite different, starring in Zhang Yimou's (”Hero,” “Raise the Red Lantern”) mega-budgeted historical epic "Nanjing Heroes."

Alex Pettyfer Out Of Project Formerly Known As 'The Last Apprentice'Her co-star Annette Bening may have picked up the lion's share of the awards nominations, after the decision was made to push both actresses for lead, rather than supporting, but Julianne Moore really was excellent in "The Kids Are All Right," one of the very best performances in a career that isn't exactly starving for great turns. Not that Moore's resting on her laurels; she's averaged three films a year for the last decade, and she's got the Steve Carell/Ryan Gosling comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" on the way later this year, along with the Robert De Niro drama "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City," and she recently signed to play Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change."

The process of casting a high-profile, much sought-after role in a major would-be franchise is a complex one, with the advent of movie blogs such as ourselves. Every stage of the process is now as public as it could be, save some kind of weekly reality show documenting it, and it has the side effect of making the casting process seem endless. It's only six weeks or so since rumors of any kind started flying around regarding Gary Ross' adaptation of immensely popular young adult novel trilogy "The Hunger Games," but it's dominated the news to the extent that we're nothing but delighted that a decision's finally been made on the casting of Katniss, the central role.

Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin & Emily Browning Among The Final ContendersIn what is shaping up to be the hottest role for a young actress in Hollywood since David Fincher's search for Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," the hunt for Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games" continues but it's looking more and more likely that a name long linked to the role, will be signing on the dotted line.

We're getting older, and we're no longer afraid to admit that. However, it does come with certain disadvantages. Our ears have aged to that point that we're now unable to hear Justin Bieber's voice, for instance. We were offered a role in a Neal Moritz-produced remake of "Cocoon" the other day. And, perhaps most importantly for this profession, we can no longer distinguish the various young-adult-novel properties that are vying to replace "Twilight" as the teen-franchise-du-jour.

Rising Star Turns Down 'Mortal Instruments' With his starring role in "I Am Number Four" in a few weeks, "Beastly" next month, and Andrew Niccol's "Now" later in the year Alex Pettyfer is swiftly becoming to the sub-genre of movies-that-Amazon-recommends-when-you-order-a-copy-of-"Twilight" what Tyler Perry is to films about African-American families. Among various projects the 20-year-old actor has percolating are a biopic of racing driver James Hunt, the young-adult-aimed "Jack the Giant Killer" and, as of a couple of weeks ago, Screen Gems' adaptation of the popular "Mortal Instruments" series by Cassandra Clare, in which Pettyfer was being aggressively courted to star in as a demon hunter, alongside "The Blind Side" star Lily Collins.
