We were bummed to hear that Johnny Depp pulled out of the lead role in the verbosely-titled Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers, because come on, you can never get enough Depp. But our frowns turned upside down the minute we heard who is up to replace him!

The new trailer for Gael Garcia Bernal's Goya nominated film Even the Rain came out and the film looks pretty riveting. We're thinking it really deserved those 13 nominations! The film is a tense drama about a filmmaker (Bernal) who goes to Bolivia to shoot a film about the Spanish conquest of America. The film crews travels coincide with the Cochabamba Water Wars in 2000, which throws their film into chaos and begins to blur the line between reality and fiction as the exploitation of indigenous people has continued for hundreds of years.

Salma Hayek is teaming up with Spanish comedian Jose Mota to make a new satirical film called La Chispa de la Vida.
It's a movie that was originally written in English by Randy Feldman (Tango & Cash) and developed for the U.S. market. But Andres Vicente Gomez is producing the film for Madrid-based Al Fresco Enterprises and tapping into Spanish tax breaks.

The new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides has dropped and in it we finally get a glimpse of Penelope Cruz in her role as Angelica, a mysterious woman from Captain Jack Sparrow's past! Of course, Johnny Depps positively nails his role as Sparrow, and we think we even caught a glimpse of Keith Richards playing his dad, unless our minds were playing tricks on us. Check it out for yourself and tell us:
