Sun Belt Express
The most recent example of man hitting rock bottom and turning to desperate measures to make ends meet is "Breaking Bad," which followed one Walter White on his twisted path to becoming a drug kingpin. In the upcoming "Sun Belt Express" another man is pushed to the wrong side of the law when his luck runs out, but with far more comedic results.

It's been a full week since Marvel announced Edgar Wright's departure from "Ant-Man," the big question still lingers: who is going to take over the movie? It's just over thirteen months until the movie is scheduled to drop into theaters, and while fanboys have been hoping for names like the screenplay's original co-writer Joe Cornish (no chance) and "Guardians Of The Galaxy" helmer James Gunn (who recently denied rumors he was getting the gig), a fresh crop of contenders has surfaced and they are not the names you might be expecting.

Begin Again

Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope George Lucas
Let's talk about the influences that shaped "Star Wars" for a moment—everyone name checks Joseph Campbell's "The Heroes With A Thousand Faces," Akira Kurosawa's "The Hidden Forteress" and countless "Flash Gordon" serials. Those are certainly among the key touchstones that George Lucas re-imagined into the most influential franchise in movie history, but there are countless other points of reference that shaped the fertile mind of a young auteur.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” Anthony and Joe Russo
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” may not be the Russo Brothers’ first film but with the reception they’re getting from Hollywood, it might as well be. All it took was a $96 million opening weekend to break the sibling-filmmakers out of the comedy and sitcom ghetto—“Community” and “Arrested Development,” notwithstanding—they’d been a part of for most of their career and now they’re some studios’ top choices for new franchises.

The Pretty One Julian Wass
Jenée LaMarque's "The Pretty One" is a film we were charmed by all the way back in 2013 when we first saw it at the Tribeca Film Festival. And of the many elements that caught our attention was the "gauzy, dreamy" score by Julian Wass. And the good news is, in addition to the film coming to VOD soon, the soundtrack will also be available shortly to spin at home too.

The Counselor, Fassbender
Michael Fassbender is an actor in an ideal position right now. He’s got the pick of the litter in terms of scripts and projects, and they are all being delivered to his doorstep. Is he an A-list star that can open a movie big? Not yet, but that likely doesn’t concern him right now (that’s his agent’s problem). What matters to the actor is that he’s working with the Terrence Malicks and Ridley Scotts of the world and he is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood at the moment.

Nicolas Cage, Left Behind
No matter how good Nicolas Cage's intentions tend to be—see our interview in Berlin from last year, where the actor suggests he wants to try working with more auteurs and doing more intimate work—there always tends to be some pay-the-bills-looking shlock around the corner. Cage might have recently said David Gordon Green's "Joe" was his best performance in ages, but maybe that matters little when there's a "Left Behind" following it up.
