Britney marks her territory, and more news to note

Today's talk you mighve' missed:

  • Out of all the music videos that Britney Spears has used to unabashedly shill her products, she picks the one for "Perfume" to scale back on the promotion. (And are we the only ones who think we're basically watching how she and Jason Trawick broke up?)
  • Oscar Isaac's folksy performance of Katy Perry's "Roar": Adorable tribute or backhanded compliment?
  • Tom Cruise is still trying to make a Jack Reacher franchise happen. The actor has lined up a sequel to 2012's "Jack Reacher" that will be based on Lee Child's book "Never Go Back." [Deadline]
  • Dare we say Julie Andrews might be intentionally avoiding NBC's "Sound of Music Live!"? It's been almost a week since it aired, and the fan favorite Maria still hasn't watched it. [Broadway World]
  • Now that NBC has shown just how well even a bad remake can perform, the network has decided that it's a brilliant idea to turn "Rosemary's Baby" into a four-part miniseries. [NYMag's Vulture]
  • Jason Momoa might be the newest addition to Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel, but the big question isn't whether he'll join but what character he'll play. Guesses so far include Doomsday and Martian Manhunter. [THR]

Trailer Park: 'Godzilla,' 'Jupiter Ascending'

The anticipation for "Godzilla" and "Jupiter Ascending" has been so thick we couldn't even decide which teaser trailer to watch first.

Both action films are due out in 2014, and both embrace a fantastical plot that's the set-up for some stunning visuals. As the first looks show, if nothing else both "Godzilla" and "Jupiter Ascending" should be beautiful to watch.

NBC's planning another live musical for 2014

The only "Sound" NBC heard after its risky live musical event on Thursday was the deafening response of ratings.

The network may have been criticized for its live "Sound of Music" starring Carrie Underwood, but it could still boast that 18.6 million viewers tuned in.

And now, they want to see if they can pull that off again.

Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor of 2013

We're not sure if this is a compliment or not, but Forbes magazine has named Adam Sandler as the most overpaid actor of the year.

On one hand, that doesn't sound like a bad deal: the 47-year-old comedic actor still commands a healthy payday even though his most recent movies have been widely panned Razzie Award all-stars. But on the other hand, who really wants to be known as the guy who makes more than he's worth?
