So yesterday brought forth the first teaser trailer for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," a pretty decent spot highlighted on mood, some sexy gothic scenery and some hints of spectcular setpieces. Well, Bleeding Cool has uncovered a slightly longer spot from the Phillipines that has a bit more footage and some dialogue...and we can see why it was ditched for the U.S. spot.

You can keep your Dark Knights and your Prometheuses because there's nothing we're looking forward to in the coming year more than "Cogan's Trade," the long-awaited third film from Australian helmer Andrew Dominik. The director showed an inordinate amount of promise with his debut, "Chopper," which helped bring Eric Bana to the world's attention, but few thought he'd follow it with a masterpiece on the level of "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," to this writer's mind one of the two or three best American movies of the 21st century so far.

After a slight blip in form with "Broken Embraces" (which, don't get us wrong, is strong, but perhaps not up to his usual quality), Pedro Almodovar returned in a big way last year with "The Skin I Live In," a nasty, puzzling little thriller that was one of the director's most satisfying works, with excellent performances from Antonio Banderas and Elena Ayana, among others. The director just picked up the BAFTA for Best Film Not In The English Language this past weekend, but as ever, he's not hanging around, with a new project already gearing up to shoot soon.

Joining a handful of filmmakers making their return last year including Lynne Ramsay, Cameron Crowe and Alexander Payne, Whit Stillman showed he still had the goods when he unveiled "Damsels In Distress" at the Venice and Toronto film festivals last year. Filled with this trademark patter, distinct style and a tone and mood that all his his own, the film isn't for everyone, but for those willing to go along for the ride, it's worth the watch.

Well, that didn't take long. Mere hours after producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed "Transformers 4" was coming, it seems a director and release date is all wrapped up and ready to go.

Right now, it's slightly under four years since we last saw a Guillermo Del Toro-directed movie in theaters. By the time his next film, the massive-scale monster movie "Pacific Rim," hits theaters, it'll be close to five. Of course, it barely feels like he's been away: last year's "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" had his name all over it, while he nearly helmed "The Hobbit" before Peter Jackson took the reins back, and will maintain a writing credit on the film, while his consulting work at DreamWorks Animation, and busy media presence has kept him in the headlines all this time.

At the movies, heroes often save the day, get the girl and say all the best lines, but in real life, that's rarely the case. For Richard and Mildred Loving it was their quiet resolve, and the simple motivation that they were stuck in an unfair and injust situation, that saw them battle for years to attain the very simple right to live together, as husband and wife, in their home state of Virginia. "The Loving Story" is a respectful and at times, eye-opening chronicle of their pursuit to be able to live an honest life.

While it's coming on three years since Michael Mann's last feature film, the divisive gangster pic "Public Enemies," he hasn't been sitting idle. His most recent endeavor has been the HBO horse racing drama "Luck" starring Dustin Hoffman, which was immediately renewed for a second season shortly after the first episode aired last month. But he's been keeping his eye on the big screen, signing onto and circling a number of projects in the past year, and now another has come across his desk.

That Paramount wants another to make another "Transformers" film has been no secret, and much of the fall was peppered with various rumors (they were going to shoot two new films back-to-back, Jason Statham would star, shooting would begin at the end of 2012), but today comes something resembling more concrete word, even if it still leaves a lot of unanswered questions.
