Lizzy Caplan wasn't kidding when earlier this year she told us that the forthcoming indie comedy, "Queens of Country," was "a super strange, really funny movie." The trailer that has landed certainly confirms the "strange" part, but as for the "funny," we'll let you decide.

There are certain actors for whom any attempt to follow the logic or reason in their career choices can only end in failure. What drives Al Pacino to follow playing himself in Adam Sandler comedy "Jack & Jill" with a Phil Spector biopic? How does Samuel L. Jackson film both Cormac McCarthy adaptation "The Sunset Limited" and direct-to-video actioner "Arena" in the same year? At least Nicolas Cage owes the government millions in taxes, but some of these elder statesman seem to delight in veering between the sublime and the ridiculous, and one of the greatest offenders is Bruce Willis.

Israeli-born writer-director Oren Moverman isn't just the owner of one of the best bald heads this side of Greg Mottola,, he's also becoming one of the most in-demand screenwriters around. Having gotten early credits on the likes of "Jesus' Son," "Married Life" and Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There," Moverman broke out with his 2009 directorial debut "The Messenger," which saw him, co-writer Alessandro Camon and star Woody Harrelson all nominated for Oscars. His follow-up "Rampart" is one of our most eagerly anticipated films at Toronto this year, and he's taken a number of high-profile screenwriting jobs of late, including biopics of Kurt Cobain and, more recently, Brian Wilson.

If you didn't lodge your complaint way back when, there's no point in kvetching now. The "Footloose" remake is signed, sealed and almost delivered. The film that does not star unlikely teen heartthrob Kevin Bacon, or love interest Lori Singer, or have Kenny Loggins' version of the original theme, opens nationwide in theaters on October 14th.

Joe Cornish's directorial debut "Attack the Block" has now been in U.S. theaters for about 10 days, having been rolling out in its native U.K. and elsewhere since May. We're sure you're fed up of the hype at this point, but it's a very, very good film: a nifty, witty, extremely well-executed little genre picture. It's also one that, like the best genre movies, has a socio-political backbone to it that in the last few days has suddenly struck a vein that few were expecting with the explosion of violence and looting that's taken place in London since Saturday night.
