    Watch: Weird, B-Movie Style Trailer For Francis Ford Coppola's 'Twixt'

    So, will Francis Ford Coppola's remix-ready gothic horror pic "Twixt" be a game changer or simply another B-movie with above average talent? Judging by the first trailer for the film -- which is the same footage they showed at Comic-Con just over a week ago -- it looks like it's somewhere in between.

    Chandra Wilson Will Direct 5th Episode Of "Grey's Anatomy"

    I had no idea Chandra Wilson had previously directed episodes of ABC's hit Shonda Rhimes drama Grey's Anatomy. Did you? Then again, I'm maybe in the minority when I say that I never really got into the show. I tried, but didn't really hook me.

    'Green Lantern' Sequel May Ditch Early Story Outlines And Start From Scratch

    Just Like Audiences Worldwide, WB Reportedly Not Happy With Martin Campbell's DirectionThere is nothing about a prospective "Green Lantern 2" that doesn't reek of flop sweat. DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are scuffling in their race against Marvel/themselves to develop a new chain of franchises based on comic book characters, and the performance of "GL" this summer has certainly hurt momentum. With "The Dark Knight Rises" pegged for next summer and "The Man Of Steel" after that, they're going to want to diversify, lest the studio be forced to greenlight a bunch of actual real movies with interesting original characters not made to sell Happy Meals. Ye gods.

    Frenchie Davis To Make Feature Film Debut In Indie Comedy "Dumbbells" (Co-Starring Jaleel White)

    Fans of American Idol, and The Voice will be familiar with Frenchie Davis - the semi-finalist on the 2nd season of Idol who was disqualified after topless photos of her, taken earlier in her career, turned up. Don't cry for the 32-year old however, because, by all accounts, Ms Davis has done fairly well for herself since then - appearing in the Broadway musical Rent, cast in the role of Effie in a West Coast-touring production of Dreamgirls, starred in the role of Mahalia Jackson in the Hartford Stage production of Mahalia: A Gospel Musical, and, most recently, was a Top 8 semi-finalist on the first season of The Voice.

    Brit Marling Reportedly Eyes Tom Cruise's 'One Shot' & Redford/LaBeouf Pic 'The Company You Keep'

    Allegedly Turned Down Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike' To Focus On 'The East'There is no mistaking it -- Brit Marling is having a moment. Arriving at Sundance earlier this year with two films, “Another Earth” and “Sound Of Your Voice,” performing triple duties on each film -- acting, writing and producing -- she soon saw major buzz surround both works, with Fox Searchlight picking up rights for the pair, and the former flick earning two prizes for director Mike Cahill. Certainly not a bad way to make your entrance into Hollywood and like Noomi Rapace and Jennifer Lawrence in 2010, this year Marling seems to be the new actress that everyone wants to have a piece of. It looks like everyone is back from summer vacation and with numerous films gearing up to start shooting this fall, it seems Marling's agent has been fielding several calls.

    Review: 'Bellflower' A Burnt-Out, Bloody, Brave Debut

    Fresh from a warm reception at Sundance, Evan Glodell’s “Bellflower” arrives as a turbo charged indictment of male adolescent fantasy and a biting critique of misplaced machismo. A burnt-out, bloody, brave debut, “Bellflower” rides out the fallout from a relationship to a stomach-churning conclusion…or does it? It’s a fine balancing act, as Glodell’s Woodrow charms the live wire Milly (Jessie Wiseman), loses her, and then rages – first impotently, then with the aid of a flamethrower and Medusa, a muscle car from hell.
