    Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal Kills A Whole Bunch Of People In NSFW Video For The Shoes' "Time To Dance"

    So, if you're a relatively unknown French electronic dance act, looking to get some buzz, hiring a Hollywood actor and getting him to kill a bunch of people in a nonsensical video is a pretty good way to go. That's pretty much what The Shoes have done in their slick but totally empty video for "Time To Dance" which features Jake Gyllenhaal mercilessly killing a bunch of people...all to the soundtrack of some hype beats!

    Emma Roberts Joins Heist Flick 'Empire State' With Dwayne Johnson & Liam Hemsworth

    After casting one of the new Expendables, Liam Hemsworth, and everybody's favourite thumb-with-a-face, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Dito Montiel's heist flick "Empire State" had easily filled up it's beefcake quota, and now the balance is being redressed somewhat by adding a bit of much needed femininity into the mix.

    Watch: John Hillcoat Directed Ad For The U.K. National Lottery & Jordan Scott Shot Armani Spot Featuring Rihanna

    John Hillcoat just doesn't do uplifting. He has a pretty good handle on the heartbreaking and emotionally affecting, but raising your spirits just doesn't seem to be his bag (at least in his feature films; remember that Levi's ad?). While we wait patiently for Hillcoat's next feature "The Wettest County" (or are we calling it "Lawless" now?) to arrive in theatres, here's an ad he's directed for the U.K.'s National Lottery.

    Woody Allen May Go To Copenhagen For His Next Movie

    Lest you think winning an Oscar for Best Screenplay for "Midnight In Paris," taking a starring role in the upcoming comedy "Fading Gigolo" and preparing "Bullets Over Broadway" for the musical stage has kept Woody Allen from keeping his eye on his next movie, guess again. With Europe continuing to inspire a late career rebound with movies set in London, Paris, Barcelona and Rome ("Nero Fiddled"), it's no shocker that the helmer is once again looking overseas as the setting for his next outing.

    VIDEO: The story of BREAKING BAD, as told by its opening scenes, seasons 3 & 4

    Season 3 opens with a surreal scene of a group of people crawling in the dirt through a rustic Mexican village. It seems that some well-known ritual is taking place. Nobody seems too surprised at the sight. A gleaming car pulls up and two men get out. They are bald, handsome, and dressed in immaculate suits. They are also identical twins. Without hesitation, they join the ritual, lying down in the dirt, despite their silk suits, and crawling along with the others. The destination is a run-down shack which has been built into some kind of shrine. Inside there are lit candles with dripping wax and bouquets and skulls draped in beads. The men in suits pin a picture up on the wall. It is a sketch of the chemistry teacher. Wherever we are in this opening scene is far from the sun-blasted streets of Albuquerque (the stomping grounds of the chemistry teacher), but it is clear that his fearsome influence is spreading.
