A few weeks ago we heard that sitcom magnate, and 'Two and a Half Men, 'Mike & Molly' and 'The Big Bang Theory' creator Chuck Lorre was looking to get even deeper into the CBS pool, developing new female-centric sitcom 'Mom.' At the time it was thought that 'Mom's' development could mean the end of one of his other series, but now it seems all four might be on track.

The picture above from 'Scary Movie 4' should tell you everything you need to know about the 'Scary Movie' franchise at this point.

The franchise and parody films in general wore out their welcome, so perhaps it'll be a breath of fresh air when 'Scary Movie 5' hits theaters January 11, 2013.

The first trailer for 'The Dictator' didn't give much in the way of plot and instead promised a fictional narrative version of the mockumentary characters we've come to expect from Sacha Baron Cohen. This first official clip strips away a bit of the goofy caricature in favor of plot...
But are you interested in what he's selling?
