We initially didn't have very high expectations for "Texas Killing Fields," but when the film landed an in competition slot at the Venice Film Festival our interest was piqued. Perhaps there was more than meets the eye to what seemed a pretty rote crime thriller. Well, our initial instincts seem to be spot on.

My how time flies. It seemed it was only yesterday that we were watching a young, sweet and bespectacled Abigail Breslin take a road trip with her oddball family in "Little Miss Sunshine." And while she has done a handful of films since -- including most notably "Zombieland" -- we're still kind of shocked that she's now fifteen years old. And clearly, she's ready to try something a bit darker and more adult.

Don't act so surprised. We pretty much figured this might happen when Magnolia picked up the film at the beginning of the year and as is usual for the indie label, one of the biggest arthouse films of the year will be available in your living room first before you can see it on the big screen. That's right, Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia" will go digital on October 7th before getting a limited release on November 11th.

Update: Producers for the film tell 24 Frames that realistically, the earliest this will shoot is 2013 as a writer still needs to be hired, a script to be written and a film to cast -- a process which will take 18 months at least. And oh yeah, don't expect Harrison Ford. "In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott," producer Andrew Kosove said. "But if you're asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention, and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting."

Stephen Root rules. Probably best known as Milton Waddams in "Office Space" the character actor moves effortlessly from comedy to drama to horror and is constantly working on a new project. Hell, just look at the wide variety of films he's had this year alone: "Red State," "Cedar Rapids," "Everything Must Go," voicing a part in "Rango," popping up in "Justified" and he's got "J. Edgar" around the corner. Not bad. He was also in Robert Redford's dusty musty drama "The Conspirator" earlier this year and he's impressed the Sundance veteran enough that he wants to work with him again.

Chris Evans has always flirted with stardom but this summer he finally nailed it down, leading "Captain America: The First Avenger" to some major box office bucks while also showing he can easily handle a tentpole lead with charm and charisma to spare. He's got "The Avengers" next summer, and while he considers his non-superhero next options -- which include "Motor City" with Albert Hughes and the long-gestating Doug Liman moon movie "Luna" -- he's got an indie flick coming out that should remind folks that Evans is more than just a pretty face.

The Influence Of 'Once Upon A Time In America' & More From Lone Scherfig & Jim Sturgess About The FilmThere’s the average romantic comedy with the meet cute or initial hatred between the inevitable lovers, and then there’s “One Day.” Rather than featuring a traditional love story narrative, set over days, weeks, or even months, “One Day” visits Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) on July 15 every year, starting in the ‘80s. The audience gets a glimpse of where they are--and where they are in relation to each other--each year on that day, creating 23 mini-films in one. They’re friends who are constantly bordering on being much more, even as others enter their lives.

The opportunities for ladies to see leading men take it off at the movies are few and far between, and usually relegated to dumb action flicks or in heavy period dramas with Vaseline on the lenses. But for Steven Soderbergh's stripper pic "Magic Mike" he's lining up the man meat with Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey already set to star. Well ladies, you might want to undo that top button because things are getting hotter.

So, how far has Joel Schumacher fallen? The studio behind "Trespass" is forced to reference "Phone Booth" and "Falling Down" -- films made ten and more years ago -- to try and stir up excitement for the director's latest, the best straight-to-DVD movie to ever to play TIFF (yes, its playing TIFF).
