While Steven Soderbergh may be done with narrative filmmaking for the moment, his "retirement" will perhaps find him busier than ever, but not on projects that will be screened at a multiplex near you. He's got his hands in stage musicals for "Magic Mike" and "Cleopatra," he's directing a play this fall, he'll be focusing on painting and writing books, and he's got some kind of web thing called Extension 765 he's launching soon too. But it seems he's also circling back to a project that had been kicking around a while, and might be familiar to devoted Soderbergh heads.

Regardless of where your anticipation for new “The Simpsons” episodes stands, one aspect of the show most agree is still strong is in its irreverent gallery of made-up brands, store names, and products. Names like Java The Hut and Bloodbath And Beyond hold a special place in the show's 24-year history, and College Humor have now paid proper tribute by focusing on just the range of video games on display.

It's probably safe to say that "Gangs Of New York" is likely the most divisive movie Martin Scorsese has made over the past decade or so. And it was also seemingly one plagued with rumors that Harvey Weinstein essentially neutered Scorsese's better (though still flawed) and preferred cut. It's something the fimmaker would deny, saying the theatrical cut is the one he intended.

Is there anything Joseph Gordon-Levitt can’t do? Or, possibly more accurately, is there anything that any right-minded person wouldn’t want to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt do? He’s the anti-Anne Hathaway in the respect that everybody loves him whether they have good reason or not, and the man now looks set to add another string to his bow.

Ry Russo-Young walked away from the 2012 Sundance Festival with a Jury Prize for “Nobody Walks,” a feature she both wrote and directed, capping a string of relatively successful indie features. She starred in and co-wrote Joe Swanberg’s “Hannah Takes the Stairs,” wrote, directed and edited “Orphans,” and wrote, directed, edited and produced 2009’s “You Won’t Miss Me”…there’s no doubting the talents of this young filmmaker. Well, flash-forward just over a year and Russo-Young looks to be benefitting from that Sundance success.

You Can Keep Asking, But Matthew Weiner Isn't Bringing Back Sal On 'Mad Men'

In case you weren't aware, the sixth season of "Mad Men" is mere weeks away, which means everyone at the office is going to be talking about the latest escapades of Don Draper until you want to burn your computer down when the inevitable cocktail theme party Evite arrives. But oddly enough, one long-axed character from the show continues to endure: Sal. Played by Bryan Batt, he was the lovable, flaming (and closeted) illustrator who was shockingly fired from Sterling Cooper during season three, never to appear on the show again. And while some continue to hold out hope he'll be back, don't count on it.

Ever since Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell and their “Veronica Mars” movie kickstarter made $2 million in 11 hours (with a total of $3.9 million and 16 days to go now), film fans and filmmakers alike have been in a frenzied state trying to figure out what this means for the current business model. But it seems that no one is more susceptible to the excitement than other TV series creators, some of whom may want to imitate the “Veronica Mars” model exactly.

Ever since the success of the original back in 2009, rumors of a “Zombieland” sequel have persisted, but had taken the back seat of late when it emerged that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who were behind the original (and this week's "G.I. Joe: Retaliation") were developing a TV version of the movie. In fact the project had started out in the first place as a TV pitch, and, as hinted back in January, Amazon has officially put the green light on a pilot for the “Zombieland” TV show. Looking to put their own stamp on original content a la Netflix, “Zombieland” will be among six other original comedy pilots that Amazon will be streaming from their Prime Instant Video service.

Review: 'Phil Spector' Killed Lana Clarkson, But David Mamet's Movie Presupposes, Maybe He Didn't?

With production on the film starting all the way back in the summer of 2011, it's been a curiously long wait for David Mamet's "Phil Spector," and from the first moment, one gets the impression that HBO's lawyers were a bit nervous about the effort. Before we even see one frame of the picture, an opening title card insists: "This is a work of fiction. It's not 'based on a true story.' It is a drama inspired by actual persons in a trial, but it is neither an attempt to depict the actual persons, nor to comment upon the trial or its outcome." But frankly, it's a little hard to swallow, particular since the director himself has been quite clear about what he thinks about Spector's fate regarding the murder of Lana Clarkson.

In case you've been living under a rock, or were somehow unaware, we hate to break it you: "Breaking Bad" is done this summer. The acclaimed, hit series wraps up the fate of Walter White in just a few months time, and after that, AMC will be left with a considerably big hole in their schedule that they'll need to fill. Could "Low Winter Sun" be the next show we're all going to be talking about?
