- People are going crazy for these character posters for Never Let Me Go. I say meh. At least two of them fit nicely as a header image. You can see the Andrew Garfield one over here, along with larger versions.

- Jean-Luc Godard is finally getting an Oscar. If he wants it, which he might not. The Academy is honoring him and the shockingly never-nominated actor Eli Wallach, as well as film historian and preservationist Kevin Brownlow, with honorary Oscars this November. This year's Irving G. Thalberg award will go to Francis Ford Coppola for his producing work through American Zoetrope. It's a shame these honors aren't presented at the Academy Awards anymore, as this would be a good crop for the telecast, though Godard would not likely show up. And not just because he can't be found to even be informed of the honor.

- Have you been dying to see Biutiful, the new film from Babel director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu featuring Javier Bardem in a Cannes-honored performance? Finally someone has picked it up for U.S. distribution. Specifically Roadside Attractions and Liddell Entertainment. Hopefully it'll find its way into theaters this fall so Bardem can contend for the Oscar.
