EXCLUSIVE: There is perhaps no greater Cinderella story this year on the indie circuit than that of actress, writer and producer Brit Marling. Arriving at Sundance with two films, "Another Earth" and "Sound Of Your Voice," performing triple duties on each film, she soon saw major buzz surround both works, with Fox Searchlight picking up rights for the pair, and the former flick earning two prizes for director Mike Cahill. Certainly not a bad way to make your entrance into Hollywood. Well, "Another Earth" will be the first film out of the gate for the studio and Marling, and as it arrives in theaters this weekend, we're proud to present a new featurette with Marling talking about her unique picture, the character she plays with bits of footage from the film giving you taste of what's to come.

While James McTeigue hasn't made his defining film yet, under the guidance of The Wachowskis he has proven himself to be an able and stylish director. Cutting his teeth with the duo as an Assistant Director on "The Matrix" trilogy and a Second Unit director on "Speed Racer," he was given the his first shot behidn the director's chair with "V For Vendetta," a kind of silly, very Wachowski-an adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel. From there he tried to save the disastrous "The Invasion," brought in at the last minute to try and salvage whatever he could before moving on to his second effort, "Ninja Assassin." Next year's "The Raven" is poised to see him break out on his own in a big way and he's lining up a new project to keep that momentum going.

Poor Jim Sheridan, we love the dude, but he seems to have fallen on a run of weird, wacky luck. The director followed up his beautiful and brave "In America" somewhat inexplicably with the 50 Cent thingy "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'." He seemed to return back to fare worth his talent with "Brothers," the remake of the Susanne Bier film, but the film was delayed and when it finally landed in theaters both critics and audiences shrugged off the war drama. A bit unfair really, since it was a very strong film with excellent performances all around by Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman with a breakthrough turn by Bailee Madison. But Sheridan's hard luck continued on "Dream House," another return to mainstream fare.

He'll be back (sorry we had to). After much buzz, hype, rumor and then a mini-meltdown after revelations surfaced that he fathered a child with his housekeeper, Arnie is looking both to re-start his acting career and get back in the good graces of the public. With that in mind, he's made a pretty bold choice, teaming with "I Saw The Devil" and "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" director Kim Ji-woon for the gritty genre flick "The Last Stand." And he'll have a couple of years to spit shine his image before facing the press again.

Already the subject of Stanley Kubrick's 1960 film, the 2004 USA Network made-for-TV movie starring Goran Višnjić and the backdrop for Starz bloody and sexed up "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" and "Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena" it seems that GK Films feel that tale of Spartacus still needs to be told.

Well-paced, classical in nature, and featuring a completely different setting -- the 1940s during WWII which makes it a big tonal departure from other Marvel Films -- "Captain America: The First Avenger," is a relatively muscular and sturdy super-hero tale which is sometimes facile, but effective enough to meet most of its goals and aims.
