Despite such tragic and widely debated events involving guns over the past year, such as Sandy Hook, polls suggest no decline in gun purchases anytime soon. But perhaps movie producer Harvey Weinstein and Oscar-nominated actress Meryl Streep will change that, as the duo are teaming up for an anti-gun movie said to shake the NRA (National Rifle Association) to its core.

'August: Osage County' looks like the kind of film that's primed to win Oscars. Based on the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, the film is a high impact dramedy filled with all of the emotional turmoil and familial dysfunction you can imagine. The new trailer is probably only the tip of the iceberg.

'August: Osage County' Review

If disses were marble, Tracy Letts would be Michelangelo and 'August: Osage County' would be his David. His characters in this film, directed by John Wells and based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, are an extended family of well-off Oklahomans loaded with secrets and festering emotional wounds. They have gathered to bury the patriarch, played by Sam Shepard in one outstanding prologue scene.
Shepard may have been the Dad, but the Mom (Meryl Streep, in peak form, even for her) is the real power. A strong and severe woman who speaks her mind loudly and frequently, and is currently suffering from mouth cancer - an irony not lost on anyone - is facing her winter years by popping pills and settling scores. A major early set piece around a dinner table has Streep sitting like a General, barking humiliating things at her family. Why, you might be thinking, would I ever want to see such a thing? For starters, it is very, very funny.

Much like HBO's other buzzy hot-button drama 'Girls,' we're excited for a second cycle of Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' regardless of what people had to say about the first.  We've already heard about a few high-profile guest stars for the second season, including comedian Patton Oswalt and 'Mad Men' star Rosemarie Dewitt, but who else might be go for a trip to 'The Newsroom?'  Meryl Streep would certainly be a good get, but if not her, how about her daughter Grace Gummer?

It would appear as though the 2013 awards season already has a major player in 'The Homesman,' and the picture hasn't even begun shooting yet. The film, set to be written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (who also plans to star), is an American frontier drama with a handful of meaty roles. Today, we may know who will occupy a couple of those meaty roles: Oscar-winners Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. (Jones won an Oscar too, so we're talking lots of potential "Academy Award Winner..." titles on 'The Homesman's' poster.)

'Hope Springs' Review

Meryl Streep has done a lot acting-with-a-capital-a lately; big, showy performances with accents and makeup and wigs and uncanny impressions of famous people. 'Hope Springs' proves she can still act-with-a-lower-case-a -- playing a nobody suburban housewife trying to breathe life back into her long-standing but lifeless marriage -- and produce equally big results. She's fantastic, and she seems to bring out the best in everyone around her, like a pitcher working on a no-hitter whose teammates are inspired to rise to the occasion and make outstanding defensive plays.

'The Devil Wears Prada' Getting a Sequel

Why didn’t ‘The Devil Wear Prada’ get a sequel? Even ‘Garfield’ got ‘A Tale of Two Kitties.’ And ‘Prada’ was a flat-out hit. It earned $326M worldwide (on a reported $35M budget). It nabbed Meryl Streep yet another Oscar nomination. And it elevated the already rising stars of both Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. All of these factors should have led to a sequel. Now, 6 years later, it just might.
