    Longer Cut Of Rian Johnson's 'Looper' Will Be Released In China

    "Looper

    With studios and financiers more cautious than ever these days to put their money behind ambitious projects that don't sell toys and enhance brands, producers have been looking East for partners to help raise funds for movies. For example, The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas" had an injection of money from Eastern backers, and Edward Zwick's developing "The Great Wall" is being moved along by Legendary East, a whole new shingle from Legendary Pictures based in that quickly growing market for Hollywood fare. Another film with coin from overseas? Rian Johnson's "Looper," and it looks like that relationship has made for an interesting quirk regarding the film's release.

    Watch: Bella & Edward Are The Same Temperature Now In Teaser Trailer For 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt. 2'

    Well, the honeymoon's out of the way, the baby's been born, and now the marriage of Bella & Edward (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson), the lead characters of the "Twilight" franchise, is going the same way as many other marriages -- into a series of fights. However, it's not the newlyweds who are arguing; it's the new Mr. & Mrs Cullen, along with Edward's family, and Jacob's pack of werewolves, against vampire authority the Volturi, who believe that their child Renesmee is an abomination, and needs to be destroyed. Which is all a long-winded way of saying that the first full teaser trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two" has arrived (to coincide with Edward's 111th birthday: you people do know he's a fictional character, right?), and it looks like it has the biggest scope of the series so far.

    Watch: Four Very Slightly Different Teaser Trailers For Pixar's 'Monsters University'

    We'd hoped that last year's "Cars 2" was something of a blip on the Pixar track record. A disappointing film, to be sure, made to keep the merchandising behemoth alive (and it doesn't hurt that John Lasseter is an auto-nut), but we figured the studio's near-impeccable run of greatness would swiftly return. But the word on "Brave," which opens this week, has not been encouraging. Most of the reviews, including our own, have suggested that, while it's not as cynical as last year's Pixar entry, it's failed to meet the high standards we've come to expect from the animation giants.

    Is Science Fiction Coming To Africa? Or Is It Already Here?

    Initially it was very difficult for me to imagine a sci-fi story set in Africa... because all the sci-fi I'd been exposed to... had been western sci-fi... mainly centered around the future of the West. It was extremely difficult for me to imagine a future Africa. And when I tried, I even thought that some of the ideas I had were frankly patronizing.
