A month on from its first trailer, we're still not quite sure about Marvel's Phase Two offering, “Thor: The Dark World.” Alongside “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as a sequel that seems more logical than necessary, the new installment from “Game of Thrones” helmer Alan Taylor looks enjoyable enough. But with the film's most recent turn of events parting ways with one of its most notable collaborators, consider us just a tiny bit disappointed moving forward.

The cinematic world may slowly shift back to something resembling normal after the onslaught of Cannes, but one film destined for continued debate is Abdellatif Kechiche’s “Blue is the Warmest Color.” The three-hour romance ended up taking home the Palme d’Or – shared amongst the director and the film’s stars, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux – but after the source material’s author labeled the adaptation “porn” due to it's graphic sex scenes, another fierce criticism has come from within, this time via the film’s crew.

What superhero movie are you most excited for this summer? “The Wolverine”? No, I thought not. Between “Iron Man 3” and the forthcoming “Man of Steel”, along with a slew of non-super block-busters, the sixth X-Men movie and do-over of 2009's “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has been struggling a little to make its way into our collective consciousness. But never fear: we are here to change that.

Confident much, Warner Bros.? Tom Cruise may have abruptly exited "The Man From U.N.C.LE.," the studio's spy action thriller which Guy Ritchie will direct, but acting quickly, the studio has already found a would-be replacement. And while he's far from a household name yet, the actor, British thespian Henry Cavill is set to play Superman in WB's "Man Of Steel" this summer, and clearly the studio is feeling good about the film's box-office chances and therefore by proxy, launching the actor near the A-list.

If “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” represented the height of Cold War paranoia within the British intelligence community, then “Shadow Dancer” is the next chapter, replacing the ominous Russian government with a more localized threat: The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

The tantalizing possibilities: Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David Yates, Shane Black, Nicolas Winding Refn were all evidently being considered for the next James Bond movie (though one manager for one filmmaker we won't name called the claim "funny"; Christopher Nolan's name also popped up.) But before we can even consider a "Bond 24" directed by one of these auteurs -- a 3D version from Lee, a NSFW one from Refn and a close-up obsessed iteration from Tom Hooper -- word comes down that the much-beloved Sam Mendes who directed "Skyfall" -- the highest grossing film in the Bond canon by a wide margin -- is now interested in taking the plunge once again.

During the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival you may have missed it, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet's upcoming 3D English-language film "The Young And Prodigious Spivet" recently dropped a pretty charming trailer and it seemed to impress the right people. Over the weekend, Deadline reported that none other that Harvey Weinstein swooped in to grab the U.S. rights to the picture for his The Weinstein Company and now a few more pics have emerged for the movie.

While Disney currently has plans to reimagine their own "Beauty And The Beast," it's probably safe to say that Christophe Gans -- the guy behind "Brotherhood Of The Wolf" and "Silent Hill" -- will have a more interesting take. Now in post-production, Pathé International took to the movie market at the recently wrapped Cannes Film Festival and brought with them a first look that positively glows with romance, or cannibalism.

There's rumors and then there's James Bond rumors, and lately they've been even more frenzied than usual. Mostly that's down to the news that "informal talks" have taken place between Christopher Nolan and producers to helm an upcoming entry in the franchise, and today brings more speculation from a couple different sources.
