While John Boyega broke out in a big way thanks to his magnetic turn in "Attack the Block," we haven't seen much from the actor since. He's taken small roles in some films that never really took ("Inkheart," "Half of a Yellow Sun") and he's at Sundance this week with "Imperial Dreams." But he's about to launch back into some major attention.

All the casting news that's fit to print! We reported last week on Dan Stevens attaching himself to the newest of Adam Sandler's periodic serious, grown-up movies (uh, not to be confused with his “Grown Ups” movies); this one's called "The Cobbler" and follows a cobbler (natch) who steps into his clients' lives as he mends their shoes.

One of the pleasant surprises in Christopher Nolan’s comic book opus “The Dark Knight Rises” was the return to the big screen for actor Matthew Modine, someone who certainly hasn’t been out of the public consciousness, but hasn’t exactly scaled the heights of films like “Short Cuts,” “Full Metal Jacket,” and “Vision Quest” – all movies that secured him a comfortable spot on the A-list in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.

Stanley Kubrick was never the most prolific of filmmakers, but his productivity slowed right down in the last couple of decades of his life; while there were several projects he worked on that never got made, including "Napoleon" and "A.I.," the director only made three films in the last twenty years of his career. And sandwiched between 1980's "The Shining" and 1999's posthumously-released "Eyes Wide Shut" was his Vietnam war epic "Full Metal Jacket."

Well here we are. 48 hours or so to go until "The Dark Knight Rises." In fact, it rolls out in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and elsewhere tomorrow, so it comes even sooner if you're in that part of the world. The reviews are out, and they're mostly good, although as has been discussed at length already, good isn't apparently enough for the army of infants whose mental well-being depends on the film maintaining a Rotten Tomatoes score above 90%, and who treat Marvel and DC like Sunnis and Shi'ites not realizing that normal people don't care, and are capable of enjoying films from both companies, as well as, shock horror, some that aren't even based on comic books at all.

In case you missed it, this morning there were even more new pics, a clip and even a parody trailer. It looks like our punishment for wanting this deluge of marketing to end is something even more severe.

Randall Miller's rock 'n' roll tribute "CBGB" has found its female lead with 'Twilight' star Ashley Greene taking on the role of Lisa Kristal, daughter of the Hilly Kristel, the owner of the titular, influential New York club to be played by Alan Rickman. The story follows Kristal as she clashes with her father, ends up as the club's business manager and attends law school all while keeping the club afloat during tough times. The real life Lisa Kristal is, in fact, a producer on the film so authenticity shouldn't be an issue here. Miller is helming from a script he wrote with Jody Savin with several interesting cast members already filled including Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop, Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith and Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry.

So it's Monday of Memorial Day weekend which means you've spent the quality time with family, had way too many hot dogs at your Uncle's BBQ, perhaps laid in the sun a bit too long and before it's back to the daily grind at the office tomorrow, you're using Monday afternoon to catch up on some websites or Twitter feeds you've been neglecting. Which may explain why this latest bit is only picking up steam now, nearly a week after it first kissed the internet.
