It was announced yesterday that Spike Jonze's mysterious new movie, "Her," about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his Siri-like operating system, would be released by Warner Bros on November 20th. And today it was revealed that two previously unreported, very exciting cast members will make appearances in Jonze's film: Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt.
It is unclear, of course, what roles the actors play (although it is conceivable that Johansson could voice the computer, especially if the settings on the computer call for "breathlessly sexy"). They join previously announced cast members Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, and Olivia Wilde. This is going to be good. Get More »
Director David O. Russell's much-fussed Abscam movie now has its title, and rather than the controversial (albeit arguably appropriate) original name "American Bulls**t," it's going to be called the much more palatable "American Hustle."
The new verbage is meant to reflect the story's true story-based premise — a con man and his mistress are teamed up with an FBI agent to run a sting operation on several corrupt politicians and criminals — but it also helps to remove the stigma of an expletive in neon lights turning away potential audiences.

"Man of Steel" ain't gonna be your daddy's "Superman," k?
A new TV spot for the super-serious Zack Snyder rendition of The Big Blue Boy Scout reinforces the December trailer's message that Henry Cavill will be presenting one heavy-hearted, stern-faced son of a gun in this movie, as he searches for his place in a world which he maybe doesn't belong to. Or does? Get More »
This week: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams all earned Oscar nominations for their performances in the period drama "The Master," writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson's thinly disguised commentary on Scientology.
If you've been paying even a modicum of attention to this year's Oscars, you probably already know that the Best Actress nominees list includes the oldest ever (Emmanuelle Riva for "Amour," 85) and the youngest ever (Quvenzhane Wallis for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," 9). It's one of those details the Academy has proudly boasted again and again as a sign of their modernity - like ditching the Academy Awards moniker for whatever reason. Get More »

Okay folks, it's crunch time. Have you submitted your Oscar ballot yet? There's big money on the line (at least a hundy we hope, right?).
As we do every year on NextMovie, we're handicapping the Oscar races to give you a leg up on your friends, family and coworkers when entering your high-stakes pool, which as we all know is as much about the glory as the greenbacks (freaking Al from finance still hasn't gotten that smirk off of his face for calling Cotillard over Christie in 2008; get over yourself, Al).
Our usual disclaimers: We do not condone gambling, unless you're in Vegas or on a reservation. Good luck!

Amy Adams is currently making the promotional rounds for her fourth, yes fourth, Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in "The Master," but with Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" flying into theaters this summer our favorite ginger's got Lois Lane on the brain.
She took her cuteness to "The Tonight Show" last night and paid a little sing-song homage to the woman who owned the role back when Adams was still in preschool — Margot Kidder — by belting out the tune which Kidder was supposed to sing in "Superman" but which was ultimately cut by director Richard Donner in place of voiceover, Maureen McGovern's "Can You Read My Mind?"

Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.
So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.
Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).
