    Watch Zoe Saldana's Directorial Debut "Kaylien"

    It shouldn't be news that Zoe Saldana wants to get behind the camera and direct. We've told you that a few times - most recently in May, when it was announced that she would be directing episodes of Vin Diesel's new web series with Fox, titled The Ropes - an original web series about the lives of bouncers. She also mentioned that she was in the running to direct a film in Montreal, though she was greedy with the details.

    H&M Launches ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Fashion Line Created By Film's Costume Designer

    In case it hasn't been made apparent by the recent cover story for Vogue and the Jean-Baptiste Mondino photo spread for Le Monde, you're going to be seeing a lot more of Rooney Mara in the coming weeks and months as "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" begins to roll out worldwide. And with the studio looking at the film to kickstart a franchise, both movie moguls and tastemakers see a potential style icon in the making, and the Telegraph reports that H&M are preparing to launch an entire fashion line inspired by "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."

    Awards Season: It’s George Clooney’s Oscar To Lose

    There’s a point in every silly season - oh of course, I meant to say awards season – when I actually get interested in the race. It happened yesterday when I saw The Descendants and realized no one is likely to beat George Clooney’s deep and touching performance. OK, maybe I also got interested because I am sick of hearing about Herman Cain and Rick Perry in that other contest; will everyone please stop taking those buffoons seriously? But mostly it was Clooney.

    John Cusack Replaces Ethan Hawke On Kasper Barfoed's 'The Numbers Station' With Malin Akerman

    A bit of an acting substitution here for a gestating indie-flick with John Cusack now replacing original star/producer Ethan Hawke as the lead in Kasper Barfoed's upcoming action-thriller "The Numbers Station," which also stars Malin Akerman. Hawke joined the project last fall when it was gearing up for early 2011 shoot, but that didn't come to pass. But with Cusack now on board, things are beginning to movie again.

    To the surprise of absolutely no one, the MPAA has officially blessed (or cursed, depending on your POV) Steve McQueen's sex addiction drama, Shame, with an NC-17 rating.

    Steve McQueen's Twelve Years A Slave: Brad Pitt To Star with Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor

    We knew that Plan B was producing Steve McQueen's Twelve Years A Slave, but we didn't know that main man Brad Pitt would take on a role in the period drama, alongside Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor. This project just keeps sounding better. Fassbender and Pitt together in the same film is almost too good to be true (wait a second, they co-starred in Tarantino's Inglourious Bastards); let's hope further casting updates on this project are as promising.

    See It Big: "Alien"

    Before I saw a single frame of Alien, it had nested under my skin. First imprinted on my underage mind was an image from the movie poster, which depicted an asteroid-like egg hovering over a latticework of gnarled moon rock, hatching spooky green light. A L I E N, it said, in a futuristic DOS-like type treatment paired with a singularly chilling tagline: “In space no one can hear you scream.” This movie might make me die, I remember thinking. This is a movie I want to see. (As a grade-schooler, I had been oddly immune to the galactic adventures of Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, and the Rebel Alliance. It was simply a gut instinct—I wasn’t interested in Good vs. Evil. Alien was a different story.)

    Producer Brian Grazer Says HBO Will Get The TV Series Portion Of The Mega 'The Dark Tower' Franchise

    Producer Brian Grazer and his awesome hair, has been very chatty talking to press during rounds for next week's "Tower Heist." Over the weekend he shared with us that the three-film, two-television series mega-adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series -- which was dropped by Universal over the summer -- was still moving ahead thanks to a significant budget reduction between $40-50 million. And while there's still no word if another studio will pick up the reins on the project, one of the best homes for adventurous programming on the small screen is apparently throwing their hat in the ring to be a part of super sized franchise.
