Miss Meadows
The long-gestating adaptation of “The Giver” may not have set the box office ablaze —a 5th place finish with $12.1 million— or won over critics, but that isn’t stopping Katie Holmes from aiming at the cheap seats again with “Miss Meadows.” The thriller’s first trailer has arrived online to entice anyone who's ever wanted to see the ex-Mrs. Cruise wield firearms.

Outcast
It's hard to keep up with the random projects Nicolas Cage takes on, so we completely forgot about "Outcast," which was first announced two years ago. And so it seems the film has made, as a trailer has arrived. And as you might guess, it's very Nic Cage.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
When Robert Rodriguez’s original "Sin City" was released in 2005, the VFX-heavy neo-noir felt genuinely groundbreaking —a comic book adaptation so faithful to the source material and its striking visuals that the comic's creator Frank Miller received a co-directing credit. Rodriguez and Miller didn't so much translate sequences as much as they cut and pasted arresting tableaus straight from the graphic novel. The dialogue encompassed the same hard-boiled monologues and staccato delivery; only word bubbles were missing. But as stringently loyal as it was (much of that dialogue being clunky), the film was outstanding visually, like nothing seen before on screen.

Nicole Holofcener The Land Of Steady Habits
It's pretty much a crime that a year has gone by since "Enough Said" hit theaters, and the consistently underrated Nicole Holofcener doesn't have a ton of projects piled on her doorstep. Thankfully, it appears that some movement is finally happening on a new film, and hopefully it won't be too long until the director has another movie on the big screen.

OTR Actresses, 2014
We’re about to hit a real sea-change with the kind of movies Hollywood is making. For years, studio bosses shied away from the idea of making movies with female leads that weren’t weepies or romantic comedies, but last year saw the three of the top-grossing movies — “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Frozen” and “Gravity”—star women, all in genres that are traditionally more male driven.

Rosewater
"Did you ever work at a restaurant? Remember your first or second day, how simple shit like 'Where is the ketchup?' takes you five minutes where it takes someone else 10 seconds? Especially early on, there were a lot of people who didn’t know where we kept the ketchup," Jon Stewart told EW about this experience directing his debut feature film. He admits he learned the gig on the fly, a far cry from his established routine on "The Daily Show."
