Outcast
It's hard to keep up with the random projects Nicolas Cage takes on, so we completely forgot about "Outcast," which was first announced two years ago. And well, it looks like it got made as a trailer has arrived, and as you might guess, it's very Nic Cage.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
When Robert Rodriguez’s original "Sin City" was released way back in 2005, the VFX-heavy neo-noir felt like something genuinely groundbreaking – a comic book adaptation so faithful to the source material and its striking visuals that the comic's creator Frank Miller received a co-directing credit. Rodriguez and Miller didn't so much translate sequences from Miller's beloved cult series as they practically cut and pasted them out of the graphic novel, positioning them in arresting tableaus Xeroxed straight from the books. Even the dialogue had the same hard-boiled monologues and staccato delivery; the only thing missing was the word bubbles. But as stringently loyal as it was (much of that dialogue being clunky), visually it was outstanding, and like nothing seen before on screen.

Winter In The Blood
It’s been over a decade since twin brothers Alex and Andrew Smith’s film “The Slaughter Rule,” starring Ryan Gosling, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002, and their follow up film, “Winter in the Blood” returns them to their home state of Montana, this time focusing on a young and troubled Blackfoot Indian, Virgil First Raise (Chaske Spencer). Things aren’t going so well for Virgil— he’s developed a hell of a drinking habit (he wakes up in a ditch) and his wife Agnes (Julia Jones) has left him and taken his rifle and electric razor (probably to pawn for a drink). He lives on a ranch with his mother and grandmother, but he’s wayward, aimless, motivated only by where he might find his next drink and how he might get his father’s rifle back.

Nicole Holofcener The Land Of Steady Habits
It's pretty much a crime that a year has gone by since "Enough Said" hit theaters, and the consistently underrated Nicole Holofcener doesn't have a ton of projects piled on her doorstep. Thankfully, it appears that some movement is finally happening on a new film, and hopefully it won't be too long until the director has another movie on the big screen.

You may have heard this one before: several years ago a young filmmaker (Colin Levy) wrote to Martin Scorsese asking which films he should see in order to broaden his cinematic horizons. Much to his surprise the director answered him and provided a list, through his assistant, of 39 essential foreign films to watch – or as many are calling it, the 39 films you should see before you die.

OTR Actresses, 2014
We’re about to hit a real sea-change with the kind of movies Hollywood is making. For years, studio bosses shied away from the idea of making movies with female leads that weren’t weepies or romantic comedies, but last year saw the three of the top-grossing movies — “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Frozen” and “Gravity”—star women, all in genres that are traditionally more male driven.

Rosewater
"Did you ever work at a restaurant? Remember your first or second day, how simple shit like 'Where is the ketchup?' takes you five minutes where it takes someone else 10 seconds? Especially early on, there were a lot of people who didn’t know where we kept the ketchup," Jon Stewart told EW about this experience directing his debut feature film. He admits he learned the gig on the fly, a far cry from his established routine on "The Daily Show."
