Crimson Peak

Crimson Peak: With Guillermo del Toro as producer, Jessica Chastain enjoyed success in horror thriller Mama earlier this year, so she's putting her trust in him as her director in next year's ghost story Crimson Peak -- to the point of submitting to the arduous process of having a body cast. She was visited by del Toro (in the background) and a young costar. [Collider]

Quentin Tarantino: Director Quentin Tarantino is, first and foremost, a movie hound, a man who spent his tender years working at a video store and watching thousands of movies. So his picks for the best movies of 2013 (so far) reflect his self-education and eclectric taste. In alphabetical order: (1) Afternoon Delight; (2) Before Midnight; (3) Blue Jasmine; (4) The Conjuring; (5) Drinking Buddies; (6) Frances Ha; (7) Gravity; (8) Kick-Ass 2; (9) The Lone Ranger; (10) This Is the End.

The Hobbit Trilogy: The first film in Peter Jackson's newest trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, has grossed more than one billion dollars at the box office worldwide -- which is a good thing, because the production costs so far have totaled more than half a billion dollars for the trilogy as a whole. That's double the amount spent on The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But as long as the next two installment do as well as the first, it will be considered money well spent; The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is due out on December 13. [Associated Press]

I, Frankenstein Trailer: A moment of silence, please, for all the good computer pixels that died to make the trailer for I, Frankenstein possible. If the latest image from the upcoming thriller starring Aaron Eckhart was bizarre -- and it was! -- the first trailer makes it look like a must-see for all hard-core fans of genre movies that threaten to jump off the tracks completely; it opens in theaters on January 24, 2014.
