The Search
Winning Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars pretty much gives you licence to do whatever you want next time around. Looking at the follow-ups of some recent Academy Award winners, so you can see a near-three-hour erotic drama (Ang Lee), a one-man show about a man cutting off his own arm (Danny Boyle), a near-three-hour drama about the search for Osama Bin Laden (Kathryn Bigelow) and a near-three-hour musical sung live on set (Tom Hooper), films that for the most part, would have had a trickier time getting a greenlight without the ability to put “From Academy Award Winning Director…” on the poster.

The Search
While there are more than a handful of films already touted as prime Palme d'Or contenders, yet to screen is Michel Hazanavicius' "The Search." It's a big shift for the filmmaker, who is moving from the featherweight "The Artist," to an epic two-and-a-half-hour wartime drama. And the first trailer is here and it looks like very strong stuff.

The Face Of Love
Love can be a terrible thing. Sharing a life with someone, building a home together, getting married, having children and merging identities to near incongruous levels are all part of the sacrificing and lifetime decision-making one does when finding “the one.” Imagine being so entwined with your better half for years, only to suddenly lose them forever. The waves of shock and horror must be overwhelming because you didn't just lose the love of your life, your partner and your lover.

Warren Beatty, Howard Hughes, Alden Ehrenrecih and Lily Collins
After more than a decade being MIA at the multiplex, bona fide legend Warren Beatty is coming back with a new film. Though recent reports suggested he might've abandoned playing Howard Hughes, not to worry, as Beatty will indeed play the famed billionaire recluse in a movie that's not quite about Hughes at all.

It's been a couple of years now since French director Michel Hazanavicius took the cinematic world by storm with this silent cinema homage, "The Artist." The box office hit and critical favorite took home five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Score for Ludovic Bource. Not a bad boost for a filmmaker who was previously best known for his spy movie spoofs, "OSS 117." Undoubtedly, expectations are going to be sky high on whatever he's working on next, but he's found a solution to keep the noise at bay: shoot in secret.

Big-screen success has been elusive for the comedic duo, but that hasn’t kept Danny McBride and Jody Hill from creating one of the most iconic comedic characters in Kenny Powers on the HBO series “Eastbound & Down.” Though that show is winding down with its final season airing later this year, McBride and Hill are sticking around on the famed cable network. Deadline reports that the two creative partners are developing another comedy series for the network, described as their “look at high school.” The final season of “Eastbound & Down” arrives in September, just in time for the MLB playoffs.

Girl Most Likely
“Girl Most Likely,” which premiered at TIFF last year as “Imogene,” will finally be released theatrically this weekend. It’s understandable if this news surprises you, seeing as how we’ve seen very little marketing from the film so far starring Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening. For the most part, we enjoyed the film, even if it had its share of problems. A trailer was released over two months ago, but despite starring Wiig, we haven’t heard or seen much else regarding the film. What’s the deal? Well, with a week to go, the marketing spring is underway for the movie with four clips unleashed on the interwebs, which you can check out below.

Girl Most Likely, Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening
Kristen Wiig exploded after the massive success of "Bridesmaids," but unlike Melissa McCarthy, we have yet to see the cinematic rewards be reaped. Her only notable post-'Bridesmaids' turns were a small part in "Friends With Kids" and another little bit in "Friends With Jolly!," but by the end of year, she'll be back on radars thanks to "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" and "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" alone. But before both of those, another one of her indie films will be hitting the big screen.
