    With shooting already underway on George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March," Sony already has Oscar in their eyes (and are avoiding a potential marketing hiccup) by moving the film from the previously scheduled December 2011 bow to an October 14, 2011 release. In what we imagine will be a platform release (and pretty much guaranteeing a TIFF premiere for the film), the movie will run up against some major heavyweights that weekend including "The Big Year" with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, the remakes of "Footloose" and "The Thing," as well as the 3D swashbuckler "The Three Musketeers."

    Filmmaker/Writer Also Talks Pee-Wee Herman Film He's ProducingDoing the rounds of press for the recent Blu-ray release of the 1996 dark satire "The Cable Guy" (thanks for including us guys), triple threat writer/producer/director Judd Apatow naturally fielded questions about the currently untitled "Knocked Up" spin-off that isn't a spin-off, but well, actually kinda sort of is (sorry Universal protesting).

    New Look At Red Skull In 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

    While we've made it pretty clear that "X-Men: First Class" is the best looking comic book film of the summer, we'll definitely give "Captain America: The First Avenger" a firm second place (sorry "Green Lantern" and "Thor," you both look too dorky to place).
