Can opinions be changed by a single image? That might be pushing it just a bit, but in the case of "The Lone Ranger," the adaptation of the ancient, wholesome western TV show, we have to say we like what we see.

You may know Ricardo De Montreuil best as the director of “The Raven,” not the James McTeigue-helmed Edgar Allen Poe actioner starring John Cusack, but rather the short film about a man named Chris Black who deals with the perils of having mysterious powers against the backdrop of a futuristic Los Angeles (watch it below). Well it looks as if Montreuil, who popped up on many in Hollywood’s radar with that short, could be taking a trip to the future once again.

There are many intriguing elements to this week’s release of “John Carter” beyond the discussed-to-death $250 million dollar (or so) budget. For one, it’s the live action directorial debut of Andrew Stanton, esteemed member of Pixar responsible for penning the “Toy Story” films and directing the beloved “Finding Nemo” and “Wall-E.” Then there’s the fact that it stars Taylor Kitsch, best known for his role as Riggins on TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” who will follow this release with another not-so-cheap little movie in Peter Berg’s “Battleship.” Finally, we’ve got the fact that it’s based on material nearly a century old that influenced everything from “Star Wars” to “Flash Gordon” to just about every science fiction movie of the past 50 years in between.

Alexandre Aja Will Take A Bite Out Of The Vampire Tale 'Undying Love'

Two years ago, we'd have likely reported on Alexandre Aja's latest project with a total lack of enthusiasm. This was the director who bought us the remake of "The Hills Have Eyes," "P2," and "Mirrors." And considering we weren't even that impressed by his calling card, "Switchblade Romance," it's probably fair to say that we weren't his biggest fans. But then he went and made "Piranha 3D," and we were genuinely sad to see that he wasn't directing the sequel. This was a film that featured Jerry O'Connell's penis being chewed up and spat out by an angry piranha, yet almost had the sense of being the work of an auteur - what's not to like?

Discuss: As A Trailer Arrives For The Return Of 'Community,' Why Aren't You Watching The Smartest, Most Ambitious Show On Television?

It's generally agreed that television is as good as it's ever been. Of course, there's a lot of rubbish on, as there always was, but virtually every night, year round, brings more quality comedy and drama than you could possibly hope to watch. The next few weeks alone bring the return of "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones," two of the most acclaimed cable dramas of recent years, while "Justified" and "Luck," muscular, cinematic long-form tales as strong as anything the big screen has seen recently, wrap up their seasons, and other favorites like "Breaking Bad," "Louie" and "Homeland" will be back before the year is out, along, we hope, with a raft of excellent new shows.

Update: Images removed by request of Warner Bros. With no trailer unveiled a mere two months out from its planned release, the marketing department for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" looks to be making up for lost time, unveiling a host of images this week from the gothic soap-opera adaptation.

It has been a good week for the filmmakers behind the found footage hit "Chronicle." Just yesterday, it was reported that director Josh Trank was talking with Sony about doing their "Spider-Man" spinoff "Venom" and now another good piece of news has arrived. Screenwriter Max Landis has been re-upped to pen "Chronicle 2," but whether Trank will come back remains to be seen.

Ask, and you shall receive. If you build it, they will come. We're sure one of those phrases applies to "Get A Job," the first feature film in a decade from "Rodger Dodger" helmer Dylan Kidd.

Starring Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Dennis Quaid, Genesis Rodriguez, Megan Mullally, Wendi McLendon-Covey ("Bridesmaids"), Rodrigo Santoro, Chace Crawford, Rob Huebel ("Human Giant"), Thomas Lennon ("A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas"), Joe Manganiello, and more, the new pregnancy comedy, "What To Expect When You're Expecting" often looks like the catch-all, all-things-to-everyone style comedy. And/or a bit like the holiday comedies of late, "New Year's Eve" and "Valentine's Day," which use the formula of dozens of celebrity actors big and small, shake and stir and hope that it all makes sense in the end. The marketing for the films has thus far insulted intelligence -- look at these awesome/awful posters -- however, it's also geared at triggering that "I can relate with that! ha!" response.

The documentary “The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye” hits theaters in New York in limited release this weekend. It’s an utterly fascinating and bizarre (sometimes queasy) look at identity and pandrogny (review later this week) that happens to center around seminal experimental music figure Genesis P-Orridge, of atonal, industrial noisemakers Throbbing Gristle, who went on to form the still-experimental, but more palatable Psychic TV.
