Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Even Emma Watson and Tom Hanks May Not Be Enough to Make a Mark As April Ends

The last weekend of April, and the “slower” spring movie season is ending this weekend, leading directly into the start of the lucrative summer box office next week. As has been the case in past years, the last couple weekends in April see a couple movies hoping to bring in any amount of money before the first big summer blockbuster, and other movies that will steal away their theaters. Last weekend was pretty sad, but hopefully a few of this weekend’s movies will fare better.

The movie that stands the best chance at finding an audience this weekend is the tech industry thriller The Circle

French film-maker had just completed Odd Job (Un Petit Boulot).

French director Pascal Chaumeil, best known for the 2010 romantic comedy hit Heartbreaker (L’Arnacoeur), has died aged 54.

“He died from on Thursday (August 27) from cancer,” his widow Camille Chaumeil told Agence France Presse on Monday.

Only last night to be bring you a stylish new international poster for Scott Waugh’s film adaptation of video game Need For Speed, and now a UK quad come racing in for the fast-paced thriller led by Aaron Paul. We’ve also got a muscle car featurette that gives a tease at the crushing vehicles set to cause carnage in the plot that sees the Breaking Bad star’s ex-con out for revenge against his former pal Dominic Cooper. Waugh has a lot to do if his film is to top Super Mario Bros. as cinemas greatest video game transition! Okay, maybe not…

'Major Crimes': Tom Berenger reunites with Mary McDonnell

To track Tom Berenger's history with series television, you have to go back to the early years of "One Life to Live."

Another promising young actor named Tommy Lee Jones was on the then-abc daytime serial during that period in the 1970s, but except for the occasional guest stint or miniseries - such as "Flesh & Blood" later that decade, or last fall's History hit "Hatfields & McCoys," which earned him an Emmy Award -- Berenger largely has kept his work focused on movies, including the classics "The Big Chill" and "Platoon" and the popular comedy "Major League."

However, one weekly TV role has lured him back, at least for a while.

HBO Orders Pilot For Cold War Spy Drama 'The Missionary' With Aaron Paul; 'Weeds' Finished After Season 8

With the clock now running down on AMC's "Breaking Bad" with one season (split into two) left to go, the future for actor Aaron Paul is a bit uncertain. Will he make the leap to the big screen? Earlier this year he earned very strong notices for his turn in the alcoholism drama "Smashed" which was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics, but aside from that, the actor hasn't been making too many big moves, though he has roles in indies "Decoding Annie Parker" and "Quad" coming up. But HBO is hoping they'll be able to snare him for a new series that will certainly be something a bit different for the actor, who until now we mostly associate with dealing meth and being able to say "bitch" rather colorfully.

Deadline reports that Paul is in talks to star in "The Missionary" a Cold War drama HBO's recently ordered up for a pilot.

On The Rise '12: 10 TV Stars Who Should Break Through To The Big Screen Soon

With cinematic releases at the moment mostly involving the not-particularly inspiring likes of "That's My Boy" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," it's hard not to look to television for a little nourishment. The trouble is that the TV season has wrapped up for the year. While a few shows (namely "Girls") are still wrapping up, and others get underway shortly ("The Newsroom," "Breaking Bad," "Louie"), it's pretty quiet on the box, with cast and creatives focusing on making a hiatus movie, campaigning for Emmy, or just getting some sleep for once.

Still, with the 2011/2012 TV season done, we thought we'd shine a light on the small screen this week. Tomorrow, we're going to run down our ten favorite TV series of the last 12 months, but today, we wanted to pick a few stars of these shows that we think are set to break out as movie stars before too long,

Aaron Paul Talks Smashed, the Final Season of Breaking Bad, Quad and Decoding Annie Parker at Sundance 2012

One of the many films that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival was director James Ponsoldt's Smashed.  Written by Susan Burke and James Ponsoldt, Smashed is about a young married couple - played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul - who are brought together by booze.  When Winstead's character (Kate) decides to get sober, it creates its own set of problems.  While the film and subject matter could have easily drifted into a Lifetime movie of the week, what makes Smashed work is a career best performance by Winstead and fantastic work from the rest of the cast which includes Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally. For more on the film, here's Matt's review. Shortly after seeing the film, I got to sit down with Aaron Paul for an exclusive interview.  We talked about what it means for him to be a part of Sundance, how he got involved in Smashed,

Nick Offerman, Aaron Paul Getting Smashed

Nick Offerman, Aaron Paul Getting Smashed
Aaron Paul's current gig has him cooking up crystal meth, but it looks like he'll be making a little detour for alcoholism.

Variety reports that the "Breaking Bad" star is in talks to join the indie dramedy, "Smashed," a film about a couple who bond over their shared addiction to booze. Things go awry, however, when the wife decides to sober up and go to AA meetings.

"Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman is also in talks to join the film; he would, quite hilariously, play an assistant principal at the school where Paul's character teaches.

There's just something about Paul and dark roles; he just wrapped up filming "Right Angle," a drama about a fast-living salesman who becomes a paraplegic. As for Offerman, he'll next appear in the Spanish language Will Ferrell comedy, "Casa de Mi Padre," and then the comedy, "Gay Dude," with wife Megan Mullally.

'Breaking Bad's' Aaron Paul sees light in dark 'Right Angle'

  • Pop2it
Aaron Paul's "day job" on Emmy-winning drama "Breaking Bad" finds him in relentlessly intense mode as drug dealer/occasional junkie Jesse Pinkman, so you might think he'd want to spend his series hiatus working on a project that involved unicorns and puppies. Not so much, though.

Just before starting the current season of his AMC series, Paul wrapped an independent film (currently called "Right Angle") in which he plays a quadriplegic: Adam Naskar, a hotshot Detroit mortgage broker who dove into a lake during a drunken party and shattered his spine.

"I know it sounds really intense and dark, but I went to Detroit a couple of weeks before we started shooting to shadow Adam and what an inspiring, amazing human being he is," Paul tells Zap2it. Paul got a quick dose of that on the very first day, when he showed up at Naskar's office and Naskar
