Walt Disney Pictures has been tinkering on making "Tink," a live-action adventure centered on Peter Pan's fantastic sidekick, Tinkerbell. And Variety is saying that Elizabeth Banks is attached to play the title character.
Banks is also helping to develop the movie for her production company. Elizabeth Wright Shapiro and McG, yes McG (!), are co-writing the script. The plot of the film will stay true to the mischievous nature of Tinkerbell. Sounds cool, just don't let McG direct okay?

The remake of "Clash of the Titans" made gazillion dollars, "Prince of Persia" was a huge hit overseas, so it's just a matter of time before the tale of the swords-and-sandals mythological god, Hercules, becomes a big-screen adventure. And the LA Times is reporting that Brett Ratner is in talks to direct for Avi Lerner and his Millennium/Nu Image production.
Is Ratner a good choice to helm the film? Well, it's not like both "Clash of the Titans" and "Prince of Persia" were Oscar contenders with dense storytelling, so Ratner will be just fine.

For my written review of "Inception," click here.
Here's more info on the film from Yahoo:
Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible -- inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- Arthur

When I first interviewed writer-director Christopher Nolan for “The Prestige,” he struck me as a very intelligent man. So who best to architect a film about the mysteries of the human mind than Nolan himself.
“Inception” is a high concept movie that could easily fall into pieces at the hands of a less-skilled director. Produced, written, and directed by Nolan, “Inception” is easily one of the best films this summer, possibly this year. Read More...

“Winter’s Bone” arrives in theaters just in the nick of time during a blockbuster summer movie season when vampires and werewolves are hailed, while character and plot development are shunned. Harrowing and uplifting at the same time, I reckon “Winter’s Bone” will leave you in a permanent redemptive state.
At the heart of the movie is a strong performance from Jennifer Lawrence who was named one of the New York Times “50 People to Watch.” She stars as Ree Dolly, a 17 year-old who is wise beyond her years. Read More...
