Eighty-three minutes of a one-man stage production adapted into a feature film doesn't exactly sound like exciting stuff, but when it's Christopher Plummer playing the late, great John Barrymore in a Tony-winning role? Count us in.

Can Ewan McGregor string together strong back-to-back performances after Mike Mills' "Beginners"? Can he match the heartfelt chemistry he shared with Melanie Laurent in Mills' film with another much-loved Gallic thespian in Eva Green? And will David MacKenzie's fusion of a love story and a disaster pic work at all? All questions we're currently asking of "Perfect Sense," the latest effort from the Scottish helmer who broke out with another McGregor-starrer "Young Adam" back in 2003.

Marketing a movie and making the message stick is definitely a challenge particularly when you are fighting dozens of other films for attention, but we hope Disney has some pay raises for the team behind "The Muppets" because they have put together the best campaign of any picture this year.

Fashion designer turned film director Tom Ford impressed us two years ago with his adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's "A Single Man" and soon excited us with the news that he was already writing a "very different" project "from scratch" that he surprisingly revealed was a comedy. Fans waiting for this sophomore effort like us, however, probably shouldn't hold their breath as Ford now reveals the project might still be quite some time away.

Will Be One Part Of An International Anthology Film Produced By Vice FilmsWhen we first learned that Harmony Korine was teaming up with Val Kilmer for a mysterious Nashville-set project about a motivational speaker it seemed like a match made in Awesome Heaven. As it seems with most Korine projects these days, it's been flying under the radar moving to its own, probably bizarro, beat, but it seems there is much much more to this already idiosyncratic undertaking.

TIFF '11 Review: 'Jeff Who Lives At Home' Takes The Duplass Bros Mainstream For Their Best Film Yet

As surreal as it is to see a micro-budget Duplass Brothers film start with the stars and mountainous terrain of the Paramount logo, in many ways that contradiction and clash sets the tone for their new comedy "Jeff Who Lives at Home." Strange things are afoot in the cosmos as Jeff (played with affable confusion and large-framed, good-hearted charm by Jason Segel) is trying to keep his eyes open for what the universe might be telling him, in terms of his destiny and purpose. Also, his mom Sharon (Susan Sarandon) would like it if he could get his ass off the couch in her basement and go to Home Depot to get wood glue to fix a broken pantry door slat …

Certain things just make intrinsically good material for ghost stories. Wide-eyed children, for one. Big empty houses in the middle of nowhere. Pale actresses in period nightdresses. Um, Jimmy McNulty. British chiller "The Awakening" has all of these things in one package, and from the looks of the trailer that just debuted over at The Guardian, it looks like it might be the kind of effectively spooky thriller that we haven't seen in a while.

Channing Tatum has made it hard for us to love him over the years. He began his days as a dancer in a Ricky Martin video, parlayed that success into modelling for the obnoxious eugenic fashion dystopia known to the world as Abercrombie & Fitch, before bumbling into Amanda Bynes transvestite comedies and drippy Nicolas Sparks adaptations. But he’s always seemed to have more fight in him than his anonymous contemporaries (hello, Sam Worthington), a willingness to mock himself as seen in the otherwise dull Allan Loeb-scripted comedy “The Dilemma,” and to have a nose for sniffing out promising material with respectable directors – “Public Enemies,” “The Eagle” – even if the end results often leave a lot to be desired.

The big film that no one saw coming this year was Michel Hazanavicius's "The Artist." The director was best known for his cult French comedies in the "OSS 117" series, and reunited with star Jean Dujardin for a silent movie homage, riffing on films from "Singin' in the Rain" to "A Star Is Born," shot in black and white and with (almost) no dialogue.
