Magic in the Moonlight

Magic in the Moonlight: Woody Allen, who often waits until the last moment before revealing the official title of his latest movie, must be in a generous mood; months in advance, the title of his 2014 release has been announced: Magic in the Moonlight. Emma Stone and Marcia Gay Harden are featured in the first official photo, while Colin Firth appears solo in another shot. The movie is set in the south of France, and that's about all we know, except that Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver will also be appearing. [The Wrap]

Noah: As it heads toward its scheduled release date of March 28, 2014, Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic Noah is sailing through troubled waters. Reportedly, "troubling reactions" from audiences at advance screenings in three different cities nationwide have resulted in director Aronofsky and studio Paramount being "at odds" over the final version of the movie. A studio rep says it's all part of the "normal preview process." [The Hollywood Reporter]

Popcorn: If you're worried about the effects of advertising that plays in most theaters before the movie starts, rest easy: all you have to do is munch some popcorn and you won't remember a thing. That's the conclusion of a team of researchers at Cologne University in Germany; their study stated in part: "The mundane activity of eating popcorn made participants immune to the pervasive effects of advertising." [The Guardian]

That Awkward Moment Trailer: Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan star as three young men on the prowl for love and romance in That Awkward Moment. The first red-band trailer is very much Not Safe for Work; featuring a memorably oversized private part, multiple profanities, dirty jokes and bared posteriors. Imogen Poots and Jessica Lucas also star; the movie is due in theaters on January 31, 2014. [Yahoo!]
