A bunch of directing news, a couple of first looks and a couple of movies getting turned into TV shows are included in this week’s News Shotgun.

This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach, Chris, Brian and Joe celebrate Christmas by dissecting the many hilarious cliches of Battle: LA, go in depth into The Dark Knight Rises and Hobbit trailers, defend the wonderfully convoluted mayhem of the Saw series, lament the rejected Green Goblin from Spider-Man and much more.
Bruce Willis, Malin Ackerman and Forest Whitaker star in this crime caper about a trio of hired female guns who attempt to steal a shipment of drugs from an out of the way diner but find themselves in a stand off with other groups with the same idea.

It’s our first look at the Coen Brothers’ remake of the western classic True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin. *UPDATE* The new full trailer is included as well now.
