"I don’t want to say ‘literary,’ because that’s a bad word," said Paul Thomas Anderson, attempting to describe the essence of Thomas Pynchon's 'Inherent Vice.' It's "beautifully written and, sort of, profound and deeply felt stuff mixed in with just the best fart jokes and poop jokes and silly songs and stuff that you could imagine." As he says, he was "trying to be as faithful to the feeling of the book as possible" in adapting it for the big screen.

How 'X-Men 3' Could've Looked With Bryan Singer

'X-Men 3' was the most disappointing installment of the entire franchise to date, with the exception of, perhaps, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine.' Director Bryan Singer, who helmed both 'X-Men' and 'X2,' was onboard 'The Last Stand' but dropped out right before production began so he could direct 'Superman Returns' instead. (Great choice, right?) This allowed Brett Ratner to step in and totally obliterate 'The Dark Phoenix Saga,' the comic book arc that served as the basis for the film. Now, more than eight years after 'X-Men 3' hit theaters, new concept art has leaked online to show us what we could've got if Singer were at the helm.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is not afraid to show off his glistening abs. If you have 'em, flaunt 'em, right? He did it a lot in the recent 'Hercules' movie and in Michael Bay's 'Pain & Gain,' and he's about to break out those puppies once again (and, probably, for a lot longer) in Paramount's upcoming 'Baywatch' movie.

Pixar, Disney
This year was the first year in a very long time that we didn't get a new Pixar movie, but that's okay, because 2015 will see two of them -- 'Inside Out' and 'The Good Dinosaur.' While the latter hit a couple production snags along the way, Disney and Pixar have released the first 'Inside Out' trailer with the first footage from the film.
