    Social Media Watch: Facebook Employees Sign Up for Google+, Most Active Users at Twitter or Facebook

    While Google+ hopes to replace Facebook as a social media site that allows you to compartmentalize your image, high-ups at Facebook have been signing up in droves for Google's new platform. See the complete list of Facebook employees using Google Plus at All Facebook, including founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, vice president Christopher Cox and vice president of human resources, Lori Goler. So far, Google+ has accumulated 10 million users in just two weeks, good progress but nowhere close to Facebook's 750 million. Perhaps Facebook's principals are conducting some competitive research at Google+ or maybe this is a friendly gesture to say that all social media can coexist together?

    James McTeigue Gets A 'Message From The King'

    While James McTeigue hasn't made his defining film yet, under the guidance of The Wachowskis he has proven himself to be an able and stylish director. Cutting his teeth with the duo as an Assistant Director on "The Matrix" trilogy and a Second Unit director on "Speed Racer," he was given the his first shot behidn the director's chair with "V For Vendetta," a kind of silly, very Wachowski-an adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel. From there he tried to save the disastrous "The Invasion," brought in at the last minute to try and salvage whatever he could before moving on to his second effort, "Ninja Assassin." Next year's "The Raven" is poised to see him break out on his own in a big way and he's lining up a new project to keep that momentum going.

    Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Rap Again (Video)

    Justin Timberlake was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote his movie Friends With Benefits, which he called a romantic comedy for guys. We'll be the judge of that, but whatever the film is, Timberlake is always one of the great TV guests. Last night he and Fallon did a sequel to their viral hit History of Rap. Take a look at the sly, hip-hop History of Rap 2.

    Watch: Daniel Craig Seems To Be Losing His Mind In Trailer For 'Dream House'

    Poor Jim Sheridan, we love the dude, but he seems to have fallen on a run of weird, wacky luck. The director followed up his beautiful and brave "In America" somewhat inexplicably with the 50 Cent thingy "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'." He seemed to return back to fare worth his talent with "Brothers," the remake of the Susanne Bier film, but the film was delayed and when it finally landed in theaters both critics and audiences shrugged off the war drama. A bit unfair really, since it was a very strong film with excellent performances all around by Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman with a breakthrough turn by Bailee Madison. But Sheridan's hard luck continued on "Dream House," another return to mainstream fare.

    Watch The $10 Million Opening Sequence That Was Cut From "Superman Returns"

    I wasn't at all a fan of Bryan Singer's 2006 film of the superhero; would my lack of appreciation for it have been positively influenced if this 5 1/2-minute intro sequence from the extras on the recently-released Superman anthology Blu-ray, wasn't left on the cutting room floor? Uh... no. And it cost $10 million! How many movies could Spike Lee have made with that?

    Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Take 'The Last Stand' On January 18, 2013

    He'll be back (sorry we had to). After much buzz, hype, rumor and then a mini-meltdown after revelations surfaced that he fathered a child with his housekeeper, Arnie is looking both to re-start his acting career and get back in the good graces of the public. With that in mind, he's made a pretty bold choice, teaming with "I Saw The Devil" and "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" director Kim Ji-woon for the gritty genre flick "The Last Stand." And he'll have a couple of years to spit shine his image before facing the press again.

    Historically Accurate 'Spartacus' Movie On The Way Written By The Guy Who Penned '300' (Obviously)

    Already the subject of Stanley Kubrick's 1960 film, the 2004 USA Network made-for-TV movie starring Goran Višnjić and the backdrop for Starz bloody and sexed up "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" and "Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena" it seems that GK Films feel that tale of Spartacus still needs to be told.
