Search For Female Lead Narrowed To Olivia Wilde & Sarah SilvermanSince "The Sopranos" ended back in 2007, James Gandolfini's been doing pretty well for himself, all told. He might not have taken any roles with as major an impact on the cultural zeitgeist as angsty mob boss Tony Soprano, but he's managed to tackle a diverse range of stuff, from a foul-mouthed general in "In The Loop" to a mood-swing-prone monster in "Where The Wild Things Are," and he's got some high-profile supporting turns on the way, in Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and Andrew Dominik's "Cogan's Trade."

In Sarah Polley's Toronto-set drama "Take this Waltz," Margo (Michelle Williams) stumbles across Daniel (Luke Kirby) on a business trip, only to find he lives across the street; despite being married to Lou (Seth Rogen), Margo can't stop thinking of Daniel. Or maybe it's because she's married to Lou that she can't stop thinking of Daniel … Following up "Away from Her," Polley's second film is sharply dividing critics and audience in Toronto: Many find it simultaneously exhilarating and depressing; others find it ugly and hateful; a third faction seems to be kicking against the film not for how it says what it says, but, instead, for what it says in the first place.

Anytime a movie’s release date gets pushed back or its title goes through a series of name changes, it can only be a good thing, right? Disney Studios has announced that its new CG animation adventure, “Wreck-It Ralph,” will hit theaters on November 2, 2012. Previously known as “Reboot Ralph” (and “Joe Jump” before that), the movie will be released in digital 3D and will include the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer.

Considering that her directorial debut, "Away From Her," was extraordinary, earning its star, Julie Christie, an Oscar nomination (and really, she should have won the thing, beaten at the last by Marion Cotillard), we've been eagerly awaiting the sophomore film from Canadian actress Sarah Polley for quite a while now. The story of a young Toronto married couple, played by Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, who struggle with monogamy and fidelity, the film also stars Sarah Silverman and relative newcomer Luke Kirby, and shot last summer in the Canadian city.

Word on the IFC-distributed comedy "Peep World" has been enormously quiet, even for those who scour for the latest in upcoming indies. With a cast consisting of Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Judy Greer, Kate Mara, Ronn Rifkin, and Lesley Ann Warren flying under the radar like this without any buzz, it can't be a good thing. Barry W. Blaustein's second foray into narrative filmmaking (his first was, and let us never forget it, "The Ringer") is devoid of what makes comedy films work, including the whole "making the audience laugh" part.
