Skyfall: As we count down the days until Skyfall, the new James Bond adventure, hits U.S. theaters on November 9, certain elements of the plot remain (happily) mysterious, such as the villainous character played by Javier Bardem, pictured above in a newly released still. We know that Daniel Craig’s 007 comes to the aid of M (Judi Dench), but we don’t know exactly how Silva (Bardem) figures into the plot -- and why his hair is dyed blond. [The Film Stage]

Johnny Depp: When we heard the report in July, it sounded like ideal casting: the dreamy Johnny Depp would be appearing in a dreamy new film from Wes Anderson. But Anderson now says Depp will not be in The Grand Budapest Hotel, though he declined to say who would be in the movie, exactly, other than the cast is “great.” Poor Johnny Depp! Looks like he’ll be out of work after he finishes Disney’s The Lone Ranger; we wish him well on his job hunt. [The Playlist]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: What’s it like to play a dragon? “You just have to lose your s*** on a carpeted floor, in a place that looks a little bit like a mundane government building,” says Benedict Cumberbatch, who briefly appears as the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. “It was just me as well, with four static cameras and all the sensors. Then the boys at Weta work their magic.” We’ll have to wait until the second installment, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, to fully experience Cumberbatch’s performance, however. [Total Film]

Silver Linings Playbook Trailer: A new trailer for David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook ably showcases the romance that develops between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as more Robert De Niro, a little bit of Chris Tucker, and plenty of football fandom. The movie opens on November 21. [Yahoo! Movies]
