Queen Of The Night Ryan Reynolds
It's been four years since Atom Egoyan's last feature, the sleazy erotic thriller "Chloe," but he's making up for that absence by being very, very busy. He's got two movies on the way -- the already shot and in post-production West Memphis Three drama "The Devil's Knot," which he quickly followed up with "Queen Of The Night," lensed earlier this year. And now, the first image from the film has arrived.

Such is movie marketing these days that it begins even before cameras roll, with studios and filmmakers teasing everything from casting decisions to location photos to fan the flames of excitement early. For two big tentpole sequels coming in 2014, they are following that playbook in the hopes of a big payoff.

Fruitvale Station
Can you tell that The Weinstein Company is getting ready for Cannes? In the past week they've dropped trailers for "The Butler" and "August: Osage County" and that's all in preparation of a big Cannes presentation for press following last year's unveiling of "Django Unchained," "The Master" and "Silver Linings Playbook." What will be there? Well, that's a Weinstein secret for now, but they'll have plenty to celebrate in the festival as Sundance hit "Fruitvale Station" will unspool for international crowds.

So how good is it to be Oscar Isaac right now? Thus far, he's worked with directors Nicolas Winding Refn, Ridley Scott, Zack Snyder, Steven Soderbergh and of course, the Coen Brothers on their upcoming "Inside Llewyn Davis." And with that film set to light up Cannes next week and likely to send Isaac into orbit, he's putting his name to a biopic about someone Hollywood has been trying to make a movie about for years.

Yet again more proof that working with HBO pays off for its talent, even if the project isn't necessarily the most well received. While you may have already forgotten about it, last year's "Hemingway & Gellhorn" (which was better than most folks gave it credit for) was another display for Nicole Kidman's acting chops. Nominations came in from Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG voters for her turn as a war reporter caught in a torrid affair with the author, and the actress hasn't forgotten about it. She's returning to the network with a project she's shepherding that touches upon a hot button issue.

So, when is a little indie project not really a little indie project? When it features mega-star Robert Downey Jr. And while it might not boast explosions or CGI, Jon Favreau's next film just got a high wattage actor on board.

Iron Man 3, Robert Downey Jr.
After “Iron Man 3” diehard fans apparently lost their minds when they heard that there were scenes exclusive to Chinese theaters that they might never get to see stateside, the powers that be decided to turn those “lost” scenes into a short film focusing on a character who only gets 10 seconds of onscreen time in the U.S. cut.

Another great conversation at the recently wrapped TCM Classic Film Festival found famed cinematographer Haskell Wexler discussing the landmark Rolling Stones doc “Gimme Shelter” with filmmaker Albert Maysles (“Salesman,” “Grey Gardens”) and camera operator Joan Churchill. Wexler acted as host and introduced the film with Maysles. After the film, Wexler, Maysles and Churchill sat down for a discussion that turned into a brief impromptu Q&A with the three discussing everything from the Hell’s Angels to being on acid to a few near-death experiences, with some additional comments by ‘Gimme Shelter’ producer Ron Schneider. Below is a selection of highlights from the conversation.

Edgar Wright Reveals He Directed One Shot In ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’

This is why Twitter is awesome. Yesterday, “Shaun of the Dead” director Edgar Wright went to his account to reveal that he shot a scene in the upcoming “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the highly anticipated latest installation in the J.J. Abrams "Star Trek" reboot (read our review here). The uber-secretive Abrams might not be so happy, but it was inevitable things were going to leak with the film already open in the U.K., only a week until it’s official U.S. release and reviews pouring in. Just enough to keep us enticed, but not enough to give away any plot points (or really any aspect of the film). This is within days of the release of the trailer for Wright’s latest “The World’s End.”
