Talk about making an entrance. Covered in blood and vomit, you might think that this is as bad as it's going to get for Marty, but in "Seven Psychopaths," there isn't one outrageous moment in the movie that director Martin McDonagh doesn't match with something that takes it just a little bit further.

A meta movie about the movies, a comedy about dog-napping featuring a rogue's gallery of performers, Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" is about as big a 180 as you can get from "In Bruges." While we didn't think it all worked, it can't be denied that the Midnight Madness audience at TIFF that we saw it with went along for the ride in a huge way. With the movie set to drop into theaters soon, a massive array of photos and three new TV spots have landed for the pic.

Certainly, if a film pulls together a cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffmam, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener, there's going to be something worth enjoying. And indeed, the trio give top shelf performances as we've always come to expect from them in "A Late Quartet." But it's just too bad that they're in service of Yaron Zilberman's film, which takes the unique focus of a string quartet in Manhattan, and puts it in the middle of a standard and unsatisfying soap opera, that spins off into one subplot too many.

The world of classical music isn't one that's explored often in the movies, but when it is, it can often prove prime awards territory -- think of "Amadeus" or "Shine," which each featured composers and musicians, and which each picked up Oscars (or in the case of the former, several) for their trouble. And that certainly seems to be the hope of Yaron Zilberman's drama "A Late Quartet," which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival tonight.

TIFF Review: Manic & Meta 'Seven Psychopaths' Both Exhausts & Delights

It would seem that following the success of "In Bruges," writer/director Martin McDonagh went to Hollywood -- and didn't like the experience. A meta riff on making movies "Seven Psychopaths" is a sneering send-up of the industry that also revels in its action movie clichés. But if there is one thing certain about McDonagh's sophomore feature film, it's that it's bigger in every sense than his debut. Boasting lots of gunplay, a big extended cast of stars willing to play along and a less witty, broader sense of humor, McDonagh tries to have it both ways by playing to the cheap seats while pointing out how absurd it is at the same time.

Not many directors have an Oscar before their first feature is released, but playwright-turned-filmmaker Martin McDonagh managed the trick by picking up the Best Short prize for his film "Six Shooter." And fortunately, his feature follow-up, "In Bruges," was no disappointment; a soulful, foul-mouthed comedy that helped to revitalize Colin Farrell's career, it proved something of a sleeper hit a few years back, picking up some great reviews.

It's a good week for dream projects with Akiva Goldsman involved, with Warner Bros. helping to make them come true. With the studio now taking a very close look at Ron Howard's sprawling "The Dark Tower," they are also flipping the switch on the long developing "Winter's Tale." Set to mark Goldsman directorial debut, the fantasy will be led by Collin Farrell and "Downton Abbey" star Jessica Findlay-Brown with Will Smith and Russell Crowe in small roles, in the story that follows a thief who breaks into a wealthy man’s home, sparking a relationship with the man’s terminally ill daughter with reincarnation, a flying horse, and a time-shift of 100 years all playing a part of the plot. William Hurt has now joined the film, and will be playing the father of the dying girl. Production begins in October.

So, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir as a string quartet? Sure, we'll make the leap, particularly when it involves some of our favorite actors.

We’re on the eve of a brand new Batman blockbuster, next month’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” which will feature Anne Hathaway as the semi-villainous cat burglar Selina Kyle who prowls the streets at night as Catwoman. While Christopher Nolan and co. have given some real-world explanations for her eccentricities (her night vision goggles prop up on her head like cat’s ears), the hardest task in defining Catwoman for a new generation will be getting out from under the shadow of Michelle Pfeiffer, whose portrayal in Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns” remains one of the towering performances in all of comic book moviedom.
