"The Impossible" filmmaker J.A. Bayona is prepping his next project, and it's a doozy, with an adaptation of Patrick Ness' fantasy novel "A Monster Calls," and he's now putting his cast together. And the first one on board is Felicity Jones, with the actress joining the Black List approved story that follows an adolescent boy with a terminally ill single mother begins having visions of a tree monster, who tells him the truths about life in the form of three stories, helping him to eventually cope with his emotions over his dying mom.

Writer/director Lawrence Michael Levine’s film “Wild Canaries” is a tonal and genre departure from his previous feature, “Gabi On The Roof In July,” but his hipster Brooklyn milieu remains the same. This film poses the question: just how might a murder mystery in this yuppie brownstone setting play out? The result, with bumbling amateur detectives, constantly squabbling couples, and a pair of actually sane lesbians, is a mixed bag, to be honest.

You've got to hand it to director Sebastian Silva... he has certainly defied all expectations. After scoring a little arthouse hit with 2009's festival fave "The Maid," Silva didn't cash in those chips for something mainstream, but instead pivoted around and let his freak flag fly. He teamed up with Michael Cera for two movies that dropped this year, the druggy road trip "Crystal Fairy" and the Polanski-esque thriller "Magic Magic." His next move? How about a comedy about two gay men looking to have a baby?

The To Do-List
For those of us who came of age in the '90s it has not been uncommon to notice a certain nostalgia creeping up on you these last few years. At first maybe you were happy to revisit some old songs or movies you hadn't heard/seen in a while but before you knew it, pop culture artifacts you didn't particularly even care for at the time seemed to bring back fond memories of a decade that now seems oh so far away (Gin Blossoms were actually a pretty good band, you guys). The new sex comedy "The To Do List," is set distinctively in the summer of 1993 and is one of the first films to transport us back to the pre-internet age of Coolio and "Clueless." If it seems too soon to start thinking about the '90s as a period piece, consider this: "Dazed and Confused" was set in 1976 and released in 1993 which means that we're now further from 1993 (when "The To Do List" is set) today than we were from the distance in Richard Linklater's stoner, coming-of-age classic. Yes, it's time to be nostalgic about the '90s.

The To Do-List
Blowjobs! Handjobs! Pearl Necklace! SEX! Do we have you attention? It's summer, the days are long, the nights are hot and everyone is half naked anyway, so it's the perfect recipe for getting it on. And CBS Films is hoping to tap into those hormonal urges with "The To Do List," the upcoming raunchy sex comedy and now some new looks are here to get you wet.

Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons and Donald Glover in The To Do List
What's on your to do list this summer? Maybe get a job, ask that girl or guy out who works at that store downtown and perhaps spend some long weekends with some friends. Either way, we're betting your list isn't quite the same as Brandy's in "The To Do List." Unless handjobs are an essential part of your summer plans....

Arrested Development, Netflix series
Binging is the new black. And thus the desire to not only gorge, but to insta-weigh-in on the new Netflix season of “Arrested Development,” which premiered over the Memorial Weekend, is in full effect. The cult of ‘AD’ has grown to a deafening roar over the years, the anticipation and expectations at the prospect of the show’s triumphant return were at an all time high going into the weekend. “Arrested Development” was neglected and then canceled in 2006 by 20th Century Fox and somehow defied the odds to return seven years later with a new lease on life thanks to Netflix and their own expanding desire for (semi) original programming. But if you’re disappointed with this new season, it may be easy to understand why. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.

It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks, after years of hopes, rumors, speculation and wishful thinking, a brand new season of "Arrested Development" will be here. And it won't be parceled out with an episode each week -- instead, Netflix is going to drop all 15 in one go, prompting marathon viewing across the nation, and challenging servers from coast to coast.

We haven't seen much of Jennifer Jason Leigh on the big screen in the past few years. Her most recent outing was in Noah Baumbach's "Greenberg" and since then she's largely laid low, appearing only on the small screen in "Weeds" and "Revenge." In January she made a splash at Sundance with parts in two buzzy, upcoming films "The Spectacular Now" and "Kill Your Darlings" and perhaps most exciting of all the lead in the new drama "The Moment". The first poster from the flick promises to be a showcase part for an actress we could always use more of.

Review: 'The Oranges' Is Dated, Schtick-Reliant Suburban Satire

There’s another era that would have welcomed the chaste suburban sex comedy “The Oranges.” In an earlier time, this mock-revealing story of two families coming apart due to infidelity would have seemed appalling, transgressive. Perhaps as a low-heat exploitation picture threatening to expose the chaos and lack of identity underneath the perfect suburban exterior. Maybe as a sobering drama about two groups of adults at an impasse between the intensity of their feelings, and the acceptable social mores which they must battle. But you review the movie that you’ve gotten, and “The Oranges” is neither of these films.
