Christian Bale and Casey Affleck teaming up for "Out Of The Furnace," the long-awaited sophomore effort from "Crazy Heart" director Scott Cooper, is pretty much all the reason we needed to place it on our Most Anticipated Of 2013 list. But the gritty Rust Belt tale about two brothers who become ensnared in a violent crime ring, now has another texture to add to the drama its cooking up.

Between the Oscar nominations, Sundance, leftover films from the previous year going into wide release, and the lack of anything good to see otherwise in theaters, January can always feel a bit stop-start in the movie world. But now that the month's coming to a close, we can start taking the long-term view of the year ahead, and in particular the new talent to come.

She’s spoken about the possibility in interviews before, and it seems this subject has cropped up numerous times over the years. But after Tina Fey announced, “I think Paramount’s on board,” during a red carpet interview at the SAG Awards, the blogosphere took it as a sign that the “Mean Girls” musical is one step closer to becoming a reality. “Maybe! We want to. I would love to,” Fey ventured.

There is a Richard Curtis-shaped hole in British comedy. After "Love, Actually" – and to a lesser extent, 'Bridget Jones 2,' and the best-forgotten "The Boat That Rocked" – the genre has been somewhat adrift, and as we wait to see if "About Time" will return him to his former glory, there are some other efforts on the way that will potentially fill the void.

In one fell swoop, Cristian Mungiu seemingly put Romanian cinema on the map in 2007 with his excellent abortion drama "4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days." With an unfussy style that favors long takes over continual edits, Mungiu's cinematic approach allows not only for heightened drama as viewers are pulled into the story on screen, but it also makes the actors the center of attention, and the performances in turn are much more real, raw and involving. And for his long-awaited followup feature "Beyond The Hills," Mungiu once again uses those tools to brilliant effect.

Well, we are just a few weeks away from the next installment of the "Die Hard" franchise, and for those who can’t wait to see John McClane back in action again, perhaps this clip will be enough to hold you over for now. It’s already been established that the film’s taking place in Russia this time around, and as we noted yesterday, “A Good Day to Die Hard” will also wind up being the shortest film in the franchise at a lean 97 minutes. As the clip demonstrates, McClane is not in Russia to do any sightseeing.

It seems that, at least on the big screen, the end of the world just isn't worth it without your friends. Last year we saw a bit of that in "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," while the Apatow gang will push that notion further this summer with "This Is The End." And this fall, Edgar Wright will round up the boys for a pint in "The World's End," and some new images are here to give you a sneak peek.

It's a peculiar day when a revenge flick comes down the pipeline and a grizzled older thespian unleashes in his genre, but in the case of Phillip Noyce's latest directorial effort, fresh-faced and Cameron-approved is the order of the day.

Now that Steven Soderbergh's hiatus from film has finally arrived (read our discussion with him here), alongside speculation on the director's next professional move comes reflection on his career thus far. One of his most involved projects -- an adaptation of '60s spy show “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” -- was scrapped in late 2011 after years of development, but now Soderbergh's longtime collaborator has finally revealed what could've been.
