So, if Universal initially moving "47 Ronin" from November 21st to February 8, 2013 was a sign that they lacked faith in the flick, is this next manuever an indication they now, in fact, have big plans for it? You don't hand out holiday dates to just anything, and the studio has now moved the Keanu Reeves-led film to Christmas Day 2013.

Now Cannes is long in the rear-view mirror, and the LA Film Festival just underway, the next big event on the film calendar is, for better or worse, San Diego Comic-Con. Originally a small gathering of fans of science fiction and comics, it's now grown into a vast Geek Bonnaroo, taking around 130,000 guests across four days, making it the biggest such event in North America, and the fourth largest in the world. And for the last decade or so, it's been a centerpiece of the marketing campaign for major movies from virtually every major studio.

While we think the world of Jodie Foster, she always seemed to be a weird potential castmate of "R.I.P.D." but with Variety now reporting that Mary-Louise Parker will take the role instead, things make a lot more sense.

We're only halfway through the year he's been on screen in three straight films where he's the villain: he was the drug dealing Jacques in "Super"; the twisted Sebastian Shaw in "X-Men: First Class" and the wife-stealing co-worker of Julianne Moore in this weekend's "Crazy, Stupid, Love." Well, people must like what they've been seeing because he's ready to make things difficult for the heroes in the forthcoming "R.I.P.D."
