Believe it or not, it's been a staggering seven years since Alexander Payne's last feature film, the smash hit "Sideways." In the interim he's been developing a few projects, producing "Hung" for HBO, as well as the recent comedy "Cedar Rapids," and he even contributed what is arguably the best short of the omnibus "Paris je t'aime" the closing segment "14e arrondissement," starring the excellent Margo Martindale. Well, Payne is finally coming back with a new feature and it looks primed to be another critical favorite.

The Fox Searchlight marketing department seems to be embracing the web with more enthusiasm this year than they have in the past. Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" has an official Fox Searchlight page, a Tumblr and its own detailed standalone site. Clearly, it's helped push the arthouse film in the minds of more mainstream moviegoers and it looks like the studio is taking the same tack with Alexander Payne's upcoming "The Descendants."

That’s right, 2010 is already in our rear view and we’re looking far, far ahead into 2011. If 2010 was the year of audiences rewarding original, smart blockbusters (“Inception”) and punishing glossy, but empty big-budget tentpoles (“The Tourist,” “Tron: Legacy”) the new year will find studios hoping once again that comic franchises and sequels can bring in the big bucks. No less than five comic-book movies are on the way with “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Green Lantern,” “Green Hornet” and “X-Men: First Class” all swinging into theaters, while tried-and-true franchises get sequels with “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” “Transformers 3,” “The Hangover 2” and “Sherlock Holmes 2” among the films looking to bank on previous successes.
