Behold! The second new exciting still from Ben Affleck's "Argo." Based on a Blacklist-favored script by Chris Terrio, "Argo," tells the true story of how the CIA, with help from Hollywood, used a fake movie project to smuggle hostages out of Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

"Wait, what?" That was the general reaction around The Playlist water cooler when we learned that James Gray's next film, the tentatively titled "Low Life," was already in front of cameras in New York City. And we couldn't be more thrilled.

It's impossible to see “Shadow Dancer,” James Marsh's adaptation of the thriller by Tim Bradby without being immediately drawn to Andrea Riseborough and her infamous red raincoat. As Colette McVeigh, she's engrossed within her family's own dealings with the IRA during the peace process and becomes an unwitting mole for the MI-5 in order to be with her son. It’s a crackling slow burn thriller (our review here) that not only finds the director once again in new territory, but also showcases the rising actress as the real deal.

So is Harmony Korine reaching for the mainstream, or is this all just a ruse to get tweens to watch "Trash Humpers"? Whatever it is, we can't wait to find out. As you might know, Korine is currently ramping up to start filming "Spring Breakers," a road trip comedy of sorts that has an improbable cast that includes wholesome Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco (Emma Roberts recently dropped out). Well, one more unlikely name has come aboard.

Even though she nabbed the biggest exposure and acclaim of her career to date thanks to her Oscar nominated turn in "Up In The Air," Vera Farmiga has continued to march to the beat of her own drum. She's eschewed big glossy tentpoles, using her post-Oscar heat to make her directorial debut "Higher Ground," as well as take roles in a diverse array of projects from high concept sci-fi ("Source Code"), indie dramedy (the recently Sundance premiered "Goats") and even a B-movie potboiler in this weekend's "Safe House." And the actress continues to take on new challenges, with her next gig providing another intriguing role.

If Bruce Willis is your Dad in a movie, and he says he's just a business consultant for the government, chances are, he's probably something up to something else. But someone didn't tell that to Henry Cavill, who finds himself dodging bullets in Madrid in the first trailer for "The Cold Light Of Day."

In person, John Krasinski doesn’t seem all that different from his television alter-ego, Jim Halpert. He’s easy going, perennially charming and usually smirking, ever ready with a clever quip at just the right moment.

Finally, the Oscar nominations were announced last Tuesday. Furthermore, three of the four big guilds -- the Producers, the Director's and the Screen Actors -- have given out their awards over the last couple of weekends, with only the Writers still to hand out any statuettes. So at last, months and months down the line, we can stop talking about what's going to be be nominated, and start talking about what's going to win. Or at least who's leading the field at this point.

It seems Universal is going for the full blanket, four quadrant marketing approach for "Snow White And The Huntsmen." While Charlize Theron's movie tie-in appearance on "Top Chef" ensures that older, high faultin' foodie types are aware of what the movie is, the studio has been going full throttle on Facebook to keep fan interest stoked.
