Last week saw the latest Weinstein Company-backed biopic “Grace of Monaco” formally drop out of this year’s Oscar race with Harvey Weinstein citing the film’s incompletion for the delay, saying it “just wasn’t finished, the sound, anything.” While Weinstein promised a full-court press for the Nicole Kidman-led film when it was released, we’re not sure the film’s new date bodes well for the biopic.

"It gets better," goes the campaign to lift the spirits of those burdened by being outsiders, but what happens if you just can't make it? What if losing yourself in hobbies or spending time with your best friend just isn't enough to overcome the constant harassment and bullying? That's the central question of Matthew Johnson's rather nervy and impressive directorial debut "The Dirties." Hitting the festival circuit hard this year, the film has slowly been gaining a steady buzz, a large part due to its Grand Jury Prize and Next Wave Spotlight wins at Slamdance and Fantastic Fest. And now it's headed to a theater near you.

Summer might be over, and the leave may be changing, but that doesn't mean Hollywood has given up entirely on popcorn thrills. This fall will still have a couple of offerings worthy of summer spectacle, and perhaps the biggest of them all is Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug." And promising returning faces from "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy and a big fucking dragon, this middle chapter in a new J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy could be the escapist fantasy of the season.

But before we see what the American take on this story is, a brand new U.K. trailer is here to remind you that the original is the real deal.
