Chris Pratt

Andy Dwyer fans, looks like we're fairly close to seeing an actual Burt Macklin movie. Or, at the very least, "Parks & Recreation" star Chris Pratt is about to soldier up for a new dramatic role. Plus, George Clooney is stepping on stage for a one-night-only performance, Denzel Washington is equalizing things out as always, and "Hanna" star Saoirse Ronan is going to tell you how she lives now.

Dragon Tattoo

The wait for David Fincher's take on "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" just got one day shorter. Shows have been added for 7 p.m. on December 20, one day earlier than originally planned. "Dragon Tattoo" is destined to become one of the biggest movies of the holiday season, so even an extra night of shows could mean big returns.

When it comes to the "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" trailer, I just wish the makers of the film would have been more honest upfront.

They tell us that they're going to make a follow-up to the "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," the Stephen Sommers-ification of the beloved action figures and TV show. They say Sommers is out and Dwayne Johnson is in. Plus, there will be Bruce Willis. That's all well and good, but nothing worth punching a wall in celebration.

But then the "Retaliation" trailer hits. Not once did anyone mention Cobra flags flying over the White House. Nobody cared to inform us that it looks like Channing Tatum will bite the dust in the first fifteen minutes. And I know for a fact that no one told us there would be a ninja fight on the side of a mountain, because if they had, we all would have been way more excited.

It's been a hard road so far for "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," the live-action adaptation of the classic television show, but it may have found a new director. After George Clooney walked away from the film and director Steven Soderbergh, it's had a hard time holding onto anyone. Bradley Cooper left shortly after joining the film, and Soderbergh departed shortly afterward.

Now Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has brought on the director of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," its big holiday relase, Guy Ritchie as a producer and probable director of the film.

His name is Armando Alvarez, and he doesn't speak American. In the brand new poster for Will Ferrell's Spanish-language action comedy, "Casa de mi Padre," we get nothing else but the face of the comedian's fiery and passionate character, Armando.

Spies have had it bad as of late. If they aren't the hollow centers of this week's generic action movie, they're one half of an on-screen couple in a shallow quadrant-hitting action comedy. James Bond may be the only redeeming representative left from the shadowy profession, and even he can err on the side of dumb on a bad day.

Just when it seems like the glory days of shadowy figures in trench coats, listening in on tapped phone conversations are long gone, "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" comes along. It's a slow, nuanced and complicated film that most people wouldn't classify as a thriller, but don't let that fool you. Gary Oldman and his legion of brilliant supporting British actors, along with the Swedish director Tomas Alfredson, have crafted a brilliant, suspense-filled tale worthy of your money and attention.

Here are five reasons to check out "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy."

It's hard to hear the voice of the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and not imagine the action super star uppercutting the air. As it turns out, that's probably what he's actually doing.

In this exclusive behind the scenes featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of "Kung Fu Panda 2," you get a peak at what it was like for Van Damme while he recorded his voice track for the film.

The brand new poster for the fourth official "American Pie" movie, "American Reunion," definitely looks familiar, but there's something different going on.

First of all, there's certainly not enough pie to go around to feed all the returning, randy cast members. All of the series' original stars, including Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Mena Suvari, Seann William Scott and Chris Klein, are all here, but I don't think that's it.

Maybe, it's because the new poster for "American Reunion" is an exact copy of the first film's iconic poster. Talk about a nostalgia attack. Everyone is in their old positions from the poster from way back in 1999, except this time Jason Biggs decided to put some clothes on. Be sure to check out the posters side-by-side. There's definitely a stark difference. It has been 13 years since the original "Pie," and, my, how time has passed!
