    'The Tree of Life' Gets A Running Time; Alexandre Desplat Talks The Score

    While the release schedule is starting to look a little less grim over the next few months -- most upcoming weekends promise at least one picture that doesn't actively insult our intelligence, which is a start -- the wait for the May release of Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" still seems interminable. It's a picture that we've been looking forward to for the last couple of years, so you'll excuse us if we jump on to any slivers of information about the film which has largely been under wraps.

    The Adjustment Bureau vs. Fringe

    Wired is not the first to make the comparison between The Adjustment Bureau and Fringe's Observers. While writer-director George Nolfi did a good job of expanding on the original 1954 Philip K. Dick short story, especially with the romance between politico Matt Damon and modern dancer Emily Blunt, he missed a step when he visualized the bureau agents in 60s fedoras:Members of both groups wear hats and suits.

    Shane Black Talks 'Iron Man 3'; Confirmed To Be Writing Script, Film Will Be A 'Tom Clancy Thriller'

    It's hasn't been all that long since Jon Favreau confirmed that he wouldn't be returning to the franchise that made his name: after reportedly feuding with Marvel on "Iron Man 2," the former-Pete-from-"Friends" opted to helm the Disney blockbuster-in-waiting "Magic Kingdom" over the third installment of the metal-suited comic book hero. But in an unusually streamlined procedure, "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" writer/director Shane Black was officially hired in a directing capacity a few weeks back (Oscar-winner Tom Hooper was also offered the director's chair earlier).
