Seeing as "Labor Day" is already done with its cursory festival appearance and headed to theaters in December, Jason Reitman is already gearing up work on his next movie, "Men, Women, Children." Judy Greer has joined the cast of Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt and Cameron Diaz in the story of junior high age kids and their parents, living in the era of the interwebs.

Well this will certainly be a change of pace for actor we're used to seeing wearing a hoodie and saying "Bitch" more often and better than anyone. Ridley Scott's "Exodus" is ramping up its casting and has an interesting slate of names coming aboard.

Sneaking into theaters with little to no fanfare at the tail end of summer, "The Cold Light of Day," a dramatically inert and visually muddy thriller from Mabrouk El Mechri ("JCVD"), is so bad that its mere presence in theaters feels like the behind-the-scenes machinations of some kind of contractual obligation instead of actual enthusiasm on anyone's part. It's telling that the movie was released in the United Kingdom back in April (it was rightly savaged) and is only finally coming out here.

James Cameron Says Non-Linear Storytelling Will Let Sigourney Weaver Return For 'Avatar' Sequels

Remember that little movie from a couple of years ago called "Avatar"? If you don't, you're probably one of the five people who didn't buy one of the tickets that helped push the movie to over $2.7 billion in worldwide sales. Given that figure, it was inevitable that sequels were put in the works, and while Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are no brainers to return, fans were a little confused when Sigourney Weaver revealed she would be returning as well. "Don't worry, I will be back," she told ComingSoon last month. "Jim [Cameron] says no one ever dies in science fiction. He's told me the stories for the next two movies and I have to say that they're absolutely wonderful and there's a real treat in store. Now we just have to make them." Hey, but wait, didn't Grace die in the first movie?

Review: A Brooding, Wooden Taylor Lautner Muddles His Way Through The Nonsensical 'Abduction'

In the future (it’s closer than you think!), celebrities will be an even bigger part of our society. While the pool of “famous people” will expand beyond movie stars, politicians and random public figures, we’ll find ourselves consumed by the public’s thirst for all things mega-famous. In this future, somewhere, someone will write a massive tome dedicated to the forehead of Taylor Lautner. Like the Monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” it is massive, and says everything and nothing. It sits on top of the scrunched up Zardoz-of-a-face that is this curious manchild, at once Cro-Magnon and, yet, every bit representative of his teenage years. It's going to be a helluva book.

While many of our writers didn’t exactly love Rodrigo Cortes’ “Hitchcock in a box” thriller “Buried,” it’s hard to deny that Cortes took some inventive turns with the film’s high concept premise. Next up for the director is “Red Lights,” which MTV has the trailer for, and it’s about as minimalist as you would imagine from a director who stuck one of Hollywood’s most rapidly rising stars (at the time) in a box for two hours.

"Everything you learned at the Academy is bullshit." That's the sage bit of wisdom Date Rape Dave (Woody Harrelson, and we'll get to his cop moniker in a moment) gives a new trainee in the opening frames of Oren Moverman's "Rampart," a searing and riveting look at a crooked cop's decay amidst the crumbling LAPD at the turn of the millennium.

First Look: Woody Harrelson Proves NWA Had A Point In New Clips From 'Rampart'

Tonight is the world premiere of "Rampart," currently showing without a distributor at the Toronto International Film Festival. Anticipation is high for Oren Moverman's highly-anticipated follow-up to the excellent "The Messenger," and while Woody Harrelson nabbed a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for that role, three new clips courtesy of THR showcase Harrelson as the lead in what we figured was an intriguing ensemble piece. The film is a period piece that showcases the repercussions of the L.A. Riots on an embattled former Vietnam vet struggling with the responsibilities of the badge, and trying to balance his sanity and questionable on-the-job morals. Moverman's co-writer on the project, which is based on a true story, was none other than legendary crime novelist James Ellroy.

Actress Says She Feels Ripley's Story Is "Unfinished"Twenty five years ago yesterday, James Cameron's "Aliens" hit screens and turned Ridley Scott's suspenseful sci-fi horror, "Alien," into more of an action sci-fi classic. They're polar opposite films, really, at least in tone and mood, but Cameron's film is arguably on-par and one of the best genre sequels of all time (we really like this take of calling it an "ode to motherhood" which is true given all the connections, though we're not sure Cameron himself saw it quite like that, but maybe we're not giving him enough credit).

There must be something in the cold mountain air of Park City that attracts the brightest young female talents. Just look at the recent track record of the Sundance Film Festival unveiling the newest Hollywood It girls: two years ago it was Carey Mulligan in "An Education," last year it was Jennifer Lawrence in "Winter's Bone" and this year, from all reports, it's the younger sister of the Olsen twins, Elizabeth Olsen.
