The timing of the new 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' trailer is impeccable. Ben Stiller's latest effort as a director premiered to mixed-but-passionate reviews at the New York Film Festival this past weekend and this new look at the film feels prepared to ride that buzz all the way to film's December release (and the 2014 Oscars?).

The internet might literally have exploded over news of Ben Affleck signing up as Batman for the 'Man of Steel' sequel, but it seems another Ben has been keeping busy as well. Ben Stiller's iconic Generation X movie 'Reality Bites' has been delivered to NBC for a potential TV series, with Stiller and original writer Helen Childress set to pen the script, but will the new series stick to the '90s timeline?

The last time we heard from the latest adaptation of 'Pinocchio,' Robert Downey Jr. was attached to star as Geppetto, Tim Burton was attached to direct and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' writer Jane Goldman was rewriting Bryan Fuller's script. In the months since that development, it looks like another big decision has been made in the film's development. For one thing, Burton is out and Ben Stiller is in. Secondly, in addition to taking on the role of the Pinocchio's creator/father, Downey Jr. may also play the living puppet himself.

It seems crazy to think but it's been 12 years since we were first introduced to Blue Steel, Derek, Hansel and the rest of the 'Zoolander' crew. The film's spot-on lampooning of the world of supermodels left fans wanting much more. Thankfully, our dreams will soon become a reality, as a sequel is in the works.
So until then, let's take a glance at the cast of 'Zoolander' then and now.

'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story' was a pretty funny movie that was a surprise hit in 2004. It pitted Vince Vaughn and his gang of outsiders against Ben Stiller and his corporate stooges in a winner-takes-all game of dodgeball. When a film does as well as 'Dodgeball' did (it made over $100 million at the box office), a sequel is practically guaranteed, and though it took a decade, it looks like they're finally getting around to it.

Much of the recent press surrounding 'Arrested Development's long-awaited return this May has focused Netflix's uncertainty about additional seasons going forward, but it seems the revival has conjured up another trick illusion to distract us from the thought. Following the multitude of past 'Arrested' stars and new roles joining the season, Ben Stiller has been announced to reprise his role as upstaging magician Tony Wonder, but what shenanigans might he bake himself into this time?

20th Century Fox has tapped Tom McGrath to direct their picture 'Rentaghost,' which has Ben Stiller as the lead. It probably wouldn't be as notable if 'John Carter' had been a success, but it's likely that people will be keeping an eye on former animation director McGrath as he transitions into feature filmmaking.

'The Watch' Review

The zeitgeist giveth and the zeitgeist taketh away. Fortuitous timing lends some films the aura of relevance; bad timing lends others the stink of impropriety. Released last summer, ‘The Watch’ would have been just another Hollywood action comedy. Released this summer, it’s burdened by all sorts of unwanted and unintended cultural associations. It already endured a title change (from ‘Neighborhood Watch’) after the death of Trayvon Martin. Now this film -- which features a man exaggeratedly grieving for a murdered friend for comic effect and an antisocial dropout who stockpiles weapons -- opens a week after the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. This poor movie can’t catch a break, which is a shame because it’s actually pretty funny.
