While it boasts a strong, marquee-named cast and some decent performances, Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington, Eva Mendes and French actor/director Guillaume Canet ("Tell No One," Marion Cotillard's baby daddy) Iranian-American screenwriter Massy Tadjedin's directorial debut, "Last Night," is an unconvincing portrait of unhappiness and marital disenfranchisement. A largely hollow couples-in-crisis infidelity drama, the picture lacks any romantic or sexual electricity, and doesn't possess many glimmers of substantive sparks. Characters go through the motions, but rarely do they echo in any resonant manner. While "Last Night" attempts to document the collapse of a marriage during one evening and the occurrences and issues that lead up to such an unfortunate event, it simply leaves one yearning for much, much more.

'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight Rewrote Script, Gemma Arterton Nowhere To Be SeenIt's almost exactly a year since "Clash of the Titans" opened, overcoming some tough competition, a beyond-shoddy 3D conversion and terrible reviews to pick up a hugely impressive half-billion dollars worldwide. While filming has been underway for a few weeks in the U.K. on the yet-to-be-officially-titled sequel ("Wrath of the Titans" has been bandied about, but never confirmed), Warner Bros has sent out a press release to officially announce the start of principle photography, and it's confirmed a few cast members, as well as giving the first detailed description of the plot.

While Sam Worthington does get some flack around these parts for not being much of a presence in the big, expensive blockbusters that orbit around him, we'll give him credit for following up his "Avatar" success with some smaller, more interesting choices. The relationship drama "Last Night," the thriller "Man On A Ledge," the crime drama "The Fields" and the assassin pic "The Debt" are all waiting in the wings for the actor and he's signed on for another film, and no, it doesn't involve having blue skin.

Last year, the sale of Miramax ended up delaying the release of a couple of films, namely John Madden's part-thriller, part romantic drama, "The Debt," and Troy Nixey's Guillermo del Toro-produced "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"; each were scheduled to hit theaters on December 29th and January 21st, respectively. Well, clearly those dates have come and gone but at least one of the films is now headed to a theatrical release.
