Check out our weekend Hollywood breaking news wrap on what you need to know: stories about Martin Scorsese, Robert Redford, Roman Coppola's love affair with Woody Allen, Diablo Cody on the gender double standard on stripping, Netflix's House of Cards, Anne Hathaway and Melissa McCarthy's future plans, Pyramid of Movie Kids, and more.

- has posted a "Pyramid of Movie Kids" starting with completely adorable and moving into… possessed territory.  It gets much more difficult to scroll, but serves as a test of your horror movie knowledge as you continue down the pyramid.

- Roman Coppola takes the seat in one of my favorite film radio series, "Movies I've Seen A Million Times."  Coppola, who has directed "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," has named Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" as the movie he could watch over and over.  Coppola says, "The film is filled with references and inside jokes that pertain to [Woody Allen's] body of work and other films that he admires, and it's all played for laughs but the humor is rather tied to the vest so the things that I find to be very hilarious are hilarious in a very subtle way."
