We've seen him blonde and inked in the set photos from "The Place Beyond The Pines" but now comes the first official look at Ryan Gosling in the film. And yes, he does look as badass on a bike as he does behind the wheel.

Madonna's latest effort behind the camera hasn't exactly been the easiest of affairs. It was widely reviled after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August where our own reviewer called it "a royal disaster." Last month word cropped up that Harvey Weinstein was sending Madonna back to the editing bay to trim ten minutes off the movie before its release later this year. Then when she recently took the movie to the BFI London Film Festival, she was roundly booed by by autograph hounds, but it was misreported as jeers coming from fans who felt she wasn't spending enough time with them. Either way, it's all about the work right? And with the Weinsteins presumably still holding hope they can get some kind of awards season play (think: Golden Globes perhaps) out of "W.E." a few more peeks at the film have arrived.

'Beetlejuice' Sequel Writer Says It Will Be "A True Continuation" & Star "Has To Be" Michael Keaton

When it was first announced that a "Beetlejuice" sequel was in the works last month there was concern. Not only is Tim Burton's 1988 film an unassailable classic (of sorts) there is only one person to play the role and his name is Michael Keaton. But with vague word that the movie would be “advancing the storyline of the original” we worried about the direction this thing was going in and whether or not some ambitious young actor would try and take over the lead. But rest assured fans, as writers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith are promising that if everything goes according to plan this will be a real deal sequel that will see Keaton himself reprise one of his most beloved characters.

Review: 'Urbanized' An Educational & Enjoyable Look At City Design

For those unacquainted with documentarian Gary Hustwit, his small body of work may seem like bland pills that are hard to swallow. To date he has made a movie about a font ("Helvetica"), our relationship with manufactured objects ("Objectified"), and now urban design ("Urbanized"). These aren't the most enticing subjects -- they all have a vague stench of "homework" or "PBS" -- but no one is more aware of these pre-judgements better than the filmmaker, who has managed to confound expectations and instead compose films that are enjoyable and, at times, very fascinating. He continues in this mode with "Urbanized," the final entry in his "design trilogy."

“Michael Perry, we would like to offer our condolences.” These are the first words of the “Into the Abyss” trailer, spoken by Werner Herzog to a young man about to be executed. Few things seem less comforting than the sound of Werner Herzog’s voice before death. But he can’t help it. That’s just how he sounds.

Every few years, a hot new screenwriter comes along who makes studio execs forget that they hate hot new screenwriters. A Charlie Kaufman-type phenom will sometimes arise from such excitement, but more often than not, the love affairs ends with a “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” greenlight and subsequent parting of the ways.

Try as they might, Lionsgate just can't seem to get "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" off the ground. The project started in the hands of David O. Russell, for a brief moment had Mike White attached, and then seemed to be ready to go with "Lars And The Real Girl" and "Fright Night" director Craig Gillespie. Gillespie, as recently as this summer, talked excitedly about shooting the film next year. But this zombie flick just added one more body to the count as Deadline reveals that Gillespie has amicably split from the movie.

Review: 'Silver Bullets' Is The Half-Assed Mumblecore/Horror Mash-Up Nobody Wanted

"Silver Bullets," the new movie by one man band Joe Swanberg (who writes, directs, stars in and edits all of his micro-budgeted features), is fairly ambitious, especially since Swanberg is a godhead in the mumblecore film genre, a movement largely defined by its lackluster commitment to, well, anything. He's attempting to wed the mumblecore aesthetic (or is it lack-of-aesthetic?) -- low-fi camerawork, naturalistic performances, unflattering nudity -- with the psychological intensity of conventional horror films (although, as you'd expect, Swanberg's definition of horror is more neurotic and introspective).
