Well, even though it turned out to be a gigantic fake that kind of pissed off Cannes Film Festival head Thierry Fremaux, if anything, that lineup got people talking again and new reports are surfacing about what might be appearing on the Croisette.

Well, we got the trailer for "On the Road" about a month ago, and since then a handful of character posters for Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Amy Adams, Alice Braga and Elisabeth Moss, so how about a few more looks at the actual movie?

While Warner Bros. has yet to push out the final leg of the "The Dark Knight Rises" marketing campaign, this will certainly suffice in the meantime. We don't know who you are anonymous internet comedians, but this is fucking gold.

Look out, Spider-Man, because Oliver Stone is on your tail with one helluva cast. Opening just a few days after the webbed one goes 3D, "Savages" is hoping to cater to adults looking for a break from spidey slinging and this first full trailer certainly promises quite the diversion.

Alexander Skarsgård, the young offspring of the well-respected acting talent Stellan Skarsgård, hasn’t quite carved his niche out for himself just yet in the film world. Outside of women everywhere with HBO subscriptions who DVR every episode of horror soap “True Blood” to watch his ripped physique, his excellent spots in Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia,” the HBO mini-series “Generation Kill,” and even his performance in the unnecessary Rod Lurie remake of Sam Peckinpah’s “Straw Dogs” have seemed to go unnoticed despite being praiseworthy. That should all change as he’s been lining up an impressive slate of films, including his first big blockbuster in the sci-fi board game remake “Battleship,” an epic Viking picture he’s producing and starring in, and a plum role opposite current indie darling Brit Marling in “Sound of My Voice” helmer Zal Batmanglij’s “The East.” Now he has another potentially mainstream-ready project to add to his busy slate.

Normally, something like Zachary Oberzan's “Flooding With Love for the Kid” is a concept to be scoffed at: the director, in the tiny confines of his apartment, adapted the novel “Rambo” was based on and played all of the characters himself. It sounds crude and generally unimpressive; a novelty destined for YouTube and nothing more. But ‘Flooding’ contains too much love, depth, and dedication to be so easily dismissed -- and though it likely still has its detractors (think of how many frustrated filmmakers bubbled with jealous ire), critics and audiences were tickled with Oberzan’s ability to not only nail the essence of childhood playtime, but to compose legitimately affecting sequences (you’ll laugh, you’ll cry) with so few resources.

While we wait for The Weinstein Company to decide when they will release Paolo Sorrentino's oddball roadtrip/Holocaust drama/revenge movie "This Must Be The Place," starring Sean Penn as a burned out, eccentric rocker, the movie is gearing up to hit U.K. cinemas this weekend. And not only that, the soundtrack -- which is already on CD overseas -- is getting a new, sexy, double LP, picture-disc reissue. Not bad, right?

Though already quite funny on his own, Ben Stiller has always been very smart about surrounding himself with other top-shelf players, not only taking the entire pressure of carrying a movie off his shoulders, but earning big comic rewards from the chemistry of collaboration. And that is certainly bearing out for "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." Kristin Wiig, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine are already all signed up, and now another very funny lady is adding her talents as well.

So far, for all the sequel mania that's swept Hollywood, the films of Martin Scorsese remain untouched. Sure, you could perhaps argue that "Casino" is a follow-up to "Goodfellas," in spirit rather than in content, but we've so far been spared "Cape Fear 2: Max Takes Manhattan," "Kundun 2: The Quickening" or "New York New York: Tokyo Drift," either from the director himself or from lesser helmers, even as we get follow-ups to everything from "Tron" to "Road House."
