The Janis Joplin biopic starring Amy Adams is still alive and very much kicking: the currently titled and long-gestating ‘Get It While You Can’ was previously set to be directed by Lee Daniels (of ‘Lee Daniels’ The Butler’), but it looks like Daniels has been replaced by Jean-Marc Vallee, director of ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ and the upcoming film ‘Wild.’

It's been seven years since Disney's 'Enchanted' charmed its way into our hearts, and now the film is finally getting a happily ever after with a sequel.

HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake.

Critics may debate whether 'American Hustle' is good or great (and they are), but one thing even the toughest critic of David O. Russell's 70s crime epic can agree on: the performances are outstanding. Across the board, the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner and even Louis CK deliver some of their best work; work that is sure to be recognized this Oscar season.

'American Hustle' Review

There is so much hair in 'American Hustle.'
Christian Bale's disastrous comb-over/rug combo basically opens the film with a wordless monologue. Beneath that unnatural mop is the sharp mind of Irving Rosenfeld, a “from the feet up” con man making the leap from running legit (but boring) dry cleaning businesses to grifting down-on-their-luck rubes on bad bank loans. His operation starts taking off when he hooks up with Amy Adams, a natural businesswoman looking to reinvent herself. She does this with a name change, a phony British accent and, later in the film, by frizzing her hair out to preposterous proportions.

Earlier today, 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder and star Amy Adams sat down with Kevin Smith at a special fan event for the upcoming Blu-ray release, with Henry Cavill telecasting in from London -- but the making of that film wasn't all they discussed. Snyder dropped a few hints about his sequel, working under the tentative title 'Batman vs. Superman,' which, obviously features the caped crusader going up against the Man of Steel himself.
