While the internet is no doubt useful to maintain our required daily cute animal fix, it’s also home to many recordings of older and foreign television programs that otherwise would never have seen the light of day. Case in point, the Criterion-approved Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky was profiled for an hour-long special on the iconic BBC series, Arena, a treat that would have never made it on the airwaves outside of Britain, then or now.

Martin Scorsese
Before his reinvention as a blockbuster director, Jon Favreau hosted a half-hour show for IFC called “Dinner For Five” that found the multi-hyphenate engaged in conversation with four other guests from the film industry over dinner. Though borne of a simple premise, the show was often illuminating, funny and, most of all, humanizing, especially when larger stars or industry legends were involved. The sole digression from the title-and-premise was a one-on-one conversation with Favreau’s future “The Wolf Of Wall Street” director Martin Scorsese that’s been making the rounds online.

13 Sins
Real human beings take a certain kind of sadistic pleasure in watching fictional human beings suffer. As long as it's from a safe distance, and it's not affecting you or yours on any level, watching man turn into beast right before your very eyes could feel almost empowering. Just think about the most popular video games for a second, if all the violent movies aren't convincing enough. This type of barbarity gets upped a notch when you throw in the theme of voyeurism; not only are we watching how low some people will go, but now we're watching them being watched, controlled, and manipulated into doing some really nasty stuff. We've seen it on taut psychological display in David Fincher's “The Game,” James Wan's “Saw” begat an entire franchise on it, and more recently E.L. Katz's “Cheap Thrills” had all sorts of delirious fun with it during the festival circuit. With Daniel Stamm's “13 Sins” however, the idea is skinned to the bone and thrown to the dogs. Trouble is, not even the dogs might enjoy this one.

Back in January, Fincher snapped the EW cover photo featuring the stars of the film, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and he's once again played shutterbug for another magazine front.

Macbeth
"Macbeth" is now in production, with Michael Fassbender in the lead role, and the actor is careful in judging his character too quickly or harshly. "I don’t think Macbeth is evil. I think he’s damaged," he told the Daily Mail. "When we meet him, he’s a man who’s as good as his circumstances will allow. He serves his king loyally and looks after his soldiers."

So what is Steven Spielberg going to direct next? That's a question even he probably doesn't quite know the answer to yet, not that he isn't giving himself options. "Robopocalypse," which was supposed to be his next project, is on hold while he's also got "Montezuma" and a possible "West Side Story" remake to consider, and now he's throwing another on the pile.
