So, remember yesterday when we told you about "Born Villain," Shia LaBeouf's collaboration with fading shock rocker Marilyn Manson? Well, it's a combination photography/artbook and short film, and in addition to its premier tonight at Space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles, a lengthy music video has hit the interwebs. If this video confirms anything, it's that Manson really, really loves Alejandro Jodorowsky.

After six years of legal drama and struggles in the editing room, Kenneth Lonergan's "Margaret" is finally arriving with something of a whimper, with the release date set for thirty days from now and a trailer and poster only coming into view today. It's a bit of an anti-climatic ending to the saga of Lonergan's sophomore effort after his acclaimed "You Can Count On Me," with the big question remaining: has the wait been been worth it? Well, take a look below to get a hint at your answer.

Ok, they're neither of them drastically different, and one is almost exactly the same, but two trailers have arrived for two films we're greatly anticipating, from two different markets.

With the popularity and critical acclaim of HBO's "Game of Thrones," David Benioff and D. B. Weiss' adaptation of George R. R. Martin's "Fire And Ice" series of novels, it was only a matter time before we started seeing the vast array of acting talent on that show moving on to film projects during the production downtime, or after their stints have ended (we'll politely overlook Jason Momoa's "performance" in "Conan").

Just as news of an actor excitedly announcing that they've got a definitely-not-a-vanity-project album on the way is generally greeted with a reaction somewhere between mockery and outright terror, news of a musician moving into the movies is rarely a good thing. But all in all, pop megastar Madonna's made a better attempt than most.

Few people have bothered going back and checking out director Tom Six’s back catalogue since “The Human Centipede (First Sequence)” became a minor cultural and cinematic phenomenon, and this writer is not among them. So perhaps “Gay in Amsterdam” is a masterpiece, but it’s doubtful the director will ever be remembered as anything other than the guy who made those forcible ass-to-mouth horror movies. If you’ve been holding out for the sequel “The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)” (and frankly why aren’t you watching "Tucker & Dale vs Evil" or waiting for Ti West’s “The Innkeepers” or something that seems half-way interesting?) it's time to put down the hastily sewn erotic tea doilies inspired by the film that you’ve been spending your evenings darning. That’s right, the wait is almost over: the second centipede comes on October 7th, according to Shock Til You Drop.

Ah, the saga of "The Lone Ranger" continues to ride on and in case you've been away here's the short version. Seeing "Cowboys & Aliens" tank, contrasted with the extraordinary $250-75 million budget that was in play for "The Lone Ranger," Disney panicked and yanked the cord on the film, sending the filmmakers scrambling to try and get the budget down to somewhere between $200-220 million while still retaining the eye-popping sequences people are going to be paying for. The result? Well, it's not back up and running but producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski are trying their damndest.

When you go to see any movie, particularly a genre picture, you are required to make a handshake deal with the film regarding the world it's trying to establish. If the picture can successfully convince you that, yes, this is a world of superheroes who are now retired, or this is a planet where no one has ever told a single lie, then you have no choice but to evaluate the movie on these terms.
