Slowly they return, the clean-shaven, square-jawed heroes of yore, displaced for so many years now by their darker, more intricately conflicted brethren - the detectives with one foot on either side of the law, the pill-popping acerbic doctors and philandering, power-mad family men. The broadcast networks pivoted first; the leads of shows like NBC's "Grimm," Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" and ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. " are good guys through and through. Now AMC, the fledgling powerhouse that branded itself with the moral ambiguity of "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," and the bleak and ever-shifting convictions of "The Walking Dead," is entering the straight-up hero business.

"A lot of people might have expected me to move out to L.A. and start making studio movies and that kind of thing," says Jamie Bell, slouched in a chair at a Beverly Hills restaurant, "but that just isn't me. I'm doing all right." Indeed, the working-class teenager from northern England who beat Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush to win the British Academy of Film and Television Arts best actor trophy for his performance two years ago in "Billy Elliot," seems to be doing just fine.

It's jarring, at first, to hear Romans speak with American accents in "The Eagle. " But that sly twist on sword-and-sandals convention makes perfect sense, lending a 21st century perspective on empire to this 2nd century drama. If only more of the film felt as fresh. Director Kevin Macdonald, who has explored extreme personalities in such memorable work as "One Day in September," "Touching the Void" and "The Last King of Scotland," hews so faithfully to genre storytelling in his new feature that it often feels like a missed opportunity.

Since HE grand-jeteed onto the scene with his BAFTA-winning performance in "Billy Elliot" at 13, Jamie Bell has grown into a bona fide globe-trotter. He just shot "Defiance" in Lithuania with Daniel Craig (slated for a December release), went to nine countries for Doug Liman's "Jumper" and filmed his current "Mister Foe" partially in Scotland. And now the 22-year-old lives in New York. But after all that, he finds himself feeling surprisingly close to his small hometown in the northeast of England that he had jumped out of at the first opportunity.

Retrospectives are usually the province of filmmakers in their 50s, but director David Gordon Green, 31, is the subject of a three-day fete at the American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre. "The showcase makes me feel old," Green says from his New Orleans home, "and quite excited. . . . I'm not usually one for looking back, but it'll be great to see these projected in all their 35-mm glory."

That's not just a bus. It's a weapon in a age-old war fought between time-space hopping Jumpers -- in this case, the roguish Griffin (Jamie Bell) -- and Paladins, led by Roland (Samuel L. Jackson), who are sworn to destroy them. In "Jumper," the battle climaxes when Griffin teleports a double decker from London to the Sahara to smash Roland.
