In February, the first trailer for Lorene Scafaria's "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" debuted, and it's a "world will end in three weeks" story mixed with a darkly comedic tone that quickly pushed the film into our 10 most anticipated indie films of the summer list. Even the soundtrack avoids a heavy dose of melancholy, preferring a bounty of uptempo nostalgia, featuring the hits of yesteryear from the likes of INXS and The Beach Boys. So, you can imagine how curious we might be, now that Focus Features has released two new preview clips from 'Seeking a Friend,' to see if it matches with our enthusiasm. Sadly, they don't.

Warner Bros. has a healthy amount of sci-fi projects brewing, with the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas" opening December 6th and Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" opening in 2013. Not much has been revealed about any of the films so far -- "Cloud Atlas" will somehow condense David Mitchell's multi-storyline, epic novel into three hours, "Pacific Rim" will see humans fight monsters and "Gravity" will see Sandra Bullock trapped in space (literally) -- but there's even less known about Warners' latest sci-fi endeavor.

That's right, another day, another piece of "Prometheus" and while our instinct is to turn off the internet until we see the damn thing, we can't help but continue to look at what is one of the summer's most anticipated films. And this latest glimpse isn't just a brief snippet of new footage -- it's a whole new scene.

"Cosmopolis," an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s typically provocative novel of the same name, is the first feature film since 1999's "eXistenZ" that filmmaker David Cronenberg has directed and scripted. This in part explains why "Cosmopolis" is such a triumph: it’s both an exceptional adaptation and a remarkable work unto itself.

Even though the rival project "Greetings From Tim Buckley" is in the can and if not finished, then pretty much nearly there, the filmmakers behind the Jeff Buckley biopic "Mystery White Boy" are choosing to make it right intead of fast. With the rights locked up to use Buckley's music, the blessing of his estate who are also involved with the film, and with rehearsals with already under way with lead Reeve Carney, this one is aiming to be the only Buckley movie you'll need to see, and they're adding a trio of strong talent.

On Monday, press screenings for Ridley Scott's long-awaited, highly anticipated "Prometheus" will begin, and the word will slowly come out as to whether it's a masterpiece, a misfire, or something in between. But if 20th Century Fox's marketing campaign continues to go the way it has so far, you'll probably have seen the whole movie by Sunday night, thanks to the large amount of clips and featurettes that have been barfed out onto the web. And now there are two more.

Remember last year when allegations flew that director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal had gained access to some classified or, at the very least top level intelligence about the raid that would end up killing Osama Bin Laden for their film "Zero Dark Thirty"? Well, it looks like they did. Ruh roh.

If you would have asked us a year ago whether we thought a sequel to Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" would ever happen, we would have taken a bet against it. Response to the 2010 film didn't set the roof on fire, but made quick and inexpensively, the exploitation film's $44 million worldwide gross was evidently enough to warrant a sequel. After all, Rodriguez just makes the picture in-house via his Troublemaker Studios and then strikes a deal with a distributor afterwards, with the writer/director still controlling rights. No fuss, no muss.
