Yes, that's right ladies. Michael Fassbender's dong guest stars in Steve McQueen's "Shame." It's his very member, along with some pretty graphic sex scenes, that will determine whether or not you'll be seeing this movie at a theater near you.

Although “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” was a box office disappointment when it was released last fall, the film’s leading lady, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, has found herself more in-demand than ever. On October 14th, she stars in “The Thing,” a prequel/companion piece to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic, and next year she appears in the unwieldy, but promising Timur Bekmabetov film “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Talking to The Playlist during the press rounds for “The Thing,” Winstead explained that she was excited as audiences are to see the forthcoming film, not the least of which because she didn’t take part in any of the action scenes.

Well, that didn't take long. With "The Lion King" back on store shelves today, Disney executives are likely a bit bummed the theatrical re-release gravy train for the movie is coming to an end. Taking in about $80 million dollars in the past few weeks, everyone has been blown away by the 3D re-release of the film. Powered by its long absence on DVD thanks to Disney's practice of super limited release windows for their movies on home video, coupled with a drought of family fare in September, the studio raked in much more than anticipated in what was likely originally envisioned as just an expensive marketing gig for the new BluRay/DVD release. But they recognize a cash cow when they see it, so get ready Moms and Dads, because there are more on the way.

For a moment there, it seemed like Kirsten Dunst might have found her career floundering in the wake of the Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but not only has the actress found her footing, her upcoming roster of films would be the envy of any thesp in Hollywood. There is no better indication than "Melancholia" that Dunst is moving in a new direction. While opinion may be split on Lars Von Trier's film, there is no denying that Dunst's turn in the lead role is easily the best performance of her career, and those on the Croisette thought so too as she walked home with the Best Actress prize this spring. And unlike the events in the film, the future for Dunst after "Melancholia" is looking very bright with a number of promising projects on the horizon.

Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, which has also been turned into an acclaimed stage play, "War Horse" almost seems too easy as piece of awards season bait (okay, maybe not as easy as putting Tom Hanks in a 9/11 drama, but still). The film follows a young man named Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his horse, Joey, and how their bond is broken when Joey is sold to the cavalry and sent to the trenches of World War I. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert heads to France to save his friend. Essentially, a dude goes off to rescue his equine friend, tears ensue. Right?

Coming hot off TIFF in 2010 and continuing that buzz right through to Sundance earlier this year, "Submarine" is one of the most talked about independent films of the 2011. Taking its cues from Lindsay Anderson, the French New Wave and even a tiny bit of Hal Ashby for good measure, the energetic, endearing and charming film about a fifteen-year-old-boy who wishes to lose his virginity and prevent his parents from divorcing, is a confident feature debut from director Richard Ayoade and is powered by strong turns from Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige.

When “Real Steel” trailers first surfaced earlier in the year, it was difficult to know what to make of the robot boxing film. With Michael Bay’s triple feature letdown of the “The Transformers” trilogy and the unavoidable similarities between "Real Steel” and the kitschy Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robots of yesteryear, how could this be anything more than another piece of disposable pop entertainment?
