    Coulson Lives (Kind Of) In 'The Avengers' U.K. Home Video Release

    Is he or isn't he? When Joss Whedon decided to kill off beloved Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) in "The Avengers," fanboys immediately took to the interwebs to declare, speculate and hypothesize that he wasn't really dead, and that if viewed a certain way, he could still be alive. Or maybe it was a grand fakeout by Nick Fury to motivate the superheroes to work together. Well, whatever the fate of Coulson in the Marvel universe (though if they bring him back, it sort of takes the emotional stakes right out of Whedon's film) there will be more fodder for fans to pick over.

    Watch: 2 Deleted Scenes From 'Prometheus,' Plus Listen To Unreleased Track From The Score

    Since its premiere earlier this summer, Ridley Scott’s polarizing “Prometheus” has provided the sort of much-needed discussion that is sorely missed during the blockbuster season, and despite a lot of the vitriol launched against the film, its impending home video release is garnering a lot of excitement. Much of that excitement is due to Scott’s precedence of providing a different experience on home video than the theatrical versions (see: the Director’s Cut of “Kingdom Of Heaven”). Although there won’t be a director’s cut of “Prometheus,” the Blu-ray release will feature some deleted and extended scenes, two of which you can see one below.

    'The Master' Secret Screening Poster Becomes Official One Sheet In France

    God forbid, but if Paul Thomas Anderson ever steps away from the moviemaking business, the advertising game is something we think he'd excel in. In case you forgot, the filmmaker was the brains behind the campaign for "The Master," cutting the trailers himself (cleverly utilizing footage not in the finished movie) and going somewhat rogue with the surprise screenings, often keeping The Weinstein Company out of the loop until literally hours before they were set to happen.

    IFP Announces The 34th Edition of Independent Film Week - Industry Activities, plus Project Forum Slate

    In the early 80s a small group of filmmakers, including myself, under the invitation of Sandra Schulberg gathered at NYC's 92nd Street 'Y' to found a filmmaker-run and oriented organization to facilitate networking and 'to give us a voice'.

    Rupert Wyatt May Step Down From Directing 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes'

    It looks like it's shaping up to be an interesting week around the Fox lot. On the weekend, honcho Tom Rothman shocked most folks by announcing he was going to be out at by the end of year, and now one of the studio's rising talents may be packing his bags as well. Rupert Wyatt is looking at the exit door from helming "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes," the sequel to his smash hit, Hollywood calling card "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes."

    'Oldboy' Helmer Park Chan-Wook To Direct Gangster Flick 'Corsica 72'

    It seems like Park Chan-Wook is getting on very well with Hollywood. The Korean filmmaker was one of the most impressive breakouts of world cinema in the 2000s, thanks to "Joint Security Area" and his "Vengeance Trilogy," made up of "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance," the currently-being-remade "Oldboy" and "Lady Vengeance." But he's spent the last year or so making his English-language debut with Southern gothic tale "Stoker," starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode, while also co-writing sci-fi "Snow Piercer" with compatriot Bong Joon-Ho, who's just directed the film with an international cast including Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer and Tilda Swinton.
