- The awesome image above is cropped from an international poster for Tron: Legacy, which is either begging to be put up in your room next to your Big Lebowski poster or at least mashed with some Lebowski imagery for some Photoshop fun. [via /Film]
- If you loved how the first G.I. Joe was directed, you'll be happy to learn that Stephen Sommers has been brought back to helm G.I. Joe 2, which was scripted by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Now, the next update we hear about this better be that Jean-Claude Van Damme has been doubly cast as Tomax and Xamot.

- We still don't know who's playing Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet, but Sony is already moving ahead on The Girl Who Played With Fire by talking to screenwriter Steven Zaillian about returning to pen this second film in the trilogy.
- I went to this site with the promise of seeing nude art photos of Nanny McPhee Returns actresses Emma Thompson and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Coyote and the Road Runner are up to in 3D. Thanks to this teaser clip, I've seen all I need and want to see. Ugh.
- Four years after debuting at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, John Scheinfeld's acclaimed music biography documentary Who is Harry Nilsson (and Why is Everybody Talkin' About Him)? has finally been picked up for U.S. distribution by Lorber Films. Having seen Scheinfeld's entertaining follow-up, The U.S. vs. John Lennon, which ended up officially released before its predecessor, I greatly look forward to seeing this at last.
- Sick of all the Inception parodies yet? This one, titled "Inception Characters Don't Understand Inception" really ought to be the last word:
