    The Trailer For "Your Highness"

    So strange that just as Natalie Portman and James Franco compete for Oscars in February, their opposite-of-Oscar follow-up will be hitting theaters (or Sundance, I'd suspect?). I was a massive fan of "Pineapple Express," and am a sucker for a good pot-influenced cult classic, so I doubt I'll personally mind at all... And this redband trailer suggests a totally absurdist, non-sensical ride that was designed by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride specifically for those us in a certain headspace:

    Steven Soderbergh Eyeing Director's Chair For 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

    The big screen version of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is one of those projects that has been knocking around for years that has never made it in front of cameras. It has attracted a variety of talent over time including Quentin Tarantino (really), Matthew Vaughan with Daniel Craig attached, David Dobkin and as recently as this summer, Doug Liman (who ended up turning it down). We can't say we were ever really interested in the project. Until now.

Meanwhile over at Warner Bros., they dropped the trailer for their new version of "Red Riding Hood" and they've dusted off one of the most celebrated classic titles in their catalog and are preparing it for a reboot.

    Amazon Launches New Movie Studio Run by Roy Price, Son of Frank

    Tuesday at 5 pm Pacific, Amazon.com launched Amazon Studios, a radical online approach to finding new screenwriters and filmmakers and developing movies. Inspired by the open source philosophy that has yielded rich results for Silicon Valley innovators, Amazon Studios director Roy Price (son of ex-studio chief Frank Price) will run this new operation, which plans to reward winning filmmakers and screenwriters with $2.7 million toward developing movies under a first-look deal with Warner Bros. "Our commissary is in your kitchen," says Price. "We're the first studio without gate guards."

    Watch: Teaser Trailer For 'Red Riding Hood' Is Basically A 'Twilight' Rehash

    We really were hoping this was going to be something fun with a bit of gothic cool, but the teaser trailer has arrived for Catherine Hardwicke's "Red Riding Hood" and it's essentially another version of the "Twilight" story. No surprise she's so comfortable with the material as she did direct the first entry in the teenage vampire phenomenon.
