    Ryan Gosling, Comedian? Watch Him With Jimmy Fallon

    I've just seen the new romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love (for the second time) and while my review will land next week when the embargo lifts, I can tell you this: Ryan Gosling will surprise you as the would-be womanizer who helps hopelessly unhip Steve Carrell get back in the game after Julianne Moore divorces him. If you think of Gosling as Mr. Intensity from films like Blue Valentine and Half Nelson, take a look as his deadpan comic storytelling on Jimmy Fallon, where he showed up with his crazy-haired dog.

    Watch: Take The Phone Off The Hook, The Red Band Trailer For 'Drive' Has Arrived

    There are only two things you need to know about "Drive": 1) It's from "Bronson" and "Valhalla Rising" director Nicolas Winding Refn and 2) it stars Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Christina Hendricks and Oscar Issac. If somehow that wasn't enough to get you on board, this red band trailer should more than do the job.

    Kevin Pollak & Illeana Douglas Check Into 'Chez Upshaw'

    While Illeana Douglas may not have the glamour of most Hollywood actresses out there, her quirkiness and versatility as an actress have earned her roles in a diverse array of projects. She's likely best known for her turns in "Cape Fear," "To Die For" and "Grace Of My Heart" but she's also popped up on the small screen as well, with roles in “Ugly Betty,” “Six Feet Under,” and as Ari Gold’s sister in HBO’s “Entourage.” Last January, after landing a major role on CW’s ill-fated series “Gossip Girl,” she dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, and with reason as she will soon be seen alongside Cheyenne Jackson and Julia Ormond in "The Green," and will continue work on My Damn Channel's award-winning web series "Easy To Assemble” this fall. Now, Douglas is set to star as Kevin Pollak’s wife in “Chez Upshaw”, a dark comedy along the vein of classic BBC comedy “Fawlty Towers.”

    'Moneyball' Poster Reveals That It Stars Brad Pitt & Is About Baseball

    We're not sure what the wisdom is of a studio releasing any major marketing material if they're not at Comic-Con -- they're bound to get ignored -- but that said, those who will be buying tickets for "Moneyball" probably don't care about whatever is happening in San Diego anyway.

    Get Inked With The Poster For 'The Raven'

    You know what? We're starting to get a good vibe about "The Raven." If you had told us that we'd be getting excited about a movie centering on a fictionalized Edgar Allan Poe hunting a serial killer, we would have called you crazy, but we've liked what we've seen so far. The first images have revealed a far more intense period feel than say the decidedly more carefree "Sherlock Holmes" and now an official poster with its highly stylized look has definitely piqued our interest.

    Comic-Con '11: Nicolas Winding Refn Says Getting His Cast Together For 'Drive' Was "Like Sex"

    Panels and press conferences are pretty straightforward: get together the cast and crew, show some footage and answer some questions. But the folks at FilmDistrict had a bit of a light bulb "Eureka!" moment, deciding to pair up their films "Drive" and "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" in one panel and let two very chatty folks in Nicolas Winding Refn and Guillermo Del Toro share the stage and the result was one of the most entertaining panels of this still young Comic-Con, providing enough quips and quotes to fill a phone book. So here are some of the highlights.
