    'Monster' Director Patty Jenkins Exits 'Thor 2'

    It looks like Marvel can't hold on to a director for "Thor 2." First, "Game Of Thrones" helmer Brian Kirk was hired and left shortly after, then a somewhat controversial choice arrived in the form of "Monster" director Patty Jenkins. A woman (gasp!) who hadn't made a feature in eight years, and who moreover didn't seem to have the kind of experience needed for a superhero movie (though the same could have been said experience-wise about Kenneth Branagh). Anyway, picky fanboys will be relieved.

    So, There's Going To Be A 'Grown Ups 2' Now

    Is this the sound of Sony and Adam Sandler panicking? The funnyman's latest entry in low brow, corporate sponsored hilarity, the dreadful "Jack & Jill" was his worst box office outing since "Little Nicky." With only $76 million worldwide, it's his first effort in eons not to cross $100 million and for a movie that cost in the neighborhood of $80 million (it certainly wasn't spent on prosthetics) that's not a good thing. So what do you do to get back on the horse? Make a sequel of course.

    First Look At Tyler Perry And Gabrielle Union In "Good Deeds"

    Nothing special (above)... posted earlier today on the film's Facebook page (HERE). I'm sure a few more will pop up shortly, with a trailer for the film in the next few weeks, given that it's scheduled to open fairly soon, February 2012, in what should be a big year for Tyler Perry, with at least 4 films expected to open in theaters - this one (Good Deeds), his take on Alex Cross, The Marriage Counselor (which he's directing but not starring in), and a Madea movie (though no word on where the gun-carrying grandmother will turn up this time).

    A Sequel To 'The Lincoln Lawyer' On The Way In Addition To The TV Series

    As the year comes to a close and we look back at the cinematic smorgasbord that 2011 was, it's easy to overlook movies as little and competent as "The Lincoln Lawyer," Lionsgate's adaptation of the best-selling Michael Connelly novel that starred Matthew McConaughey as a slippery LA lawyer who does business out of his town car. Did it push the medium in bold new directions? No, but it was a really solid thriller, one that didn't insult your intelligence or treat you like a small, sugar-riddled child. It was announced at the end of the summer that the movie would be turned into a weekly series for ABC, with the participation of Connelly and the film's writer John Romano, back for more. But it looks like we'll be getting even more of lawyer Mickey Haller, as Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns recently announcd on CNBC (via Deadline) that there will be a big screen sequel too.

    Excelsior! Wrekin Hill & NECA Pick Up Rights to Morgan Spurlock's 'Comic-Con Episode IV - A Fan's Hope'

    To an outsider, one who exercises regularly and enjoys a healthy sex life, Comic-Con is a baffling and terrifying phenomenon -- the giant, money-soaked extrapolation of the inside of a perpetual 13-year-old-boy's head. But that mystique may wear off when "Super Size Me" director Morgan Spurlock's "Comic-Con Episode IV - A Fan's Hope" (even the title has us rolling our eyes) comes out next year. It was announced today that LA-based production and distribution company Wrekin Hill and NECA, a movie merchandising company that puts out "Gremlins" action figures, have teamed to release the film in the spring of 2012.

    Forget About Oscars: Angelina Jolie & Luc Besson Team Up For Dramatic Thriller With "Scientific Elements"

    With neither Angelina Jolie's "In The Land Of Blood And Honey" or Luc Besson's "The Lady" looking like big awards season players this year, it seems the pair have decided to say "Fuck it" to chasing statues and are going to go back in getting some asses in seats.
