“The two scripts we have … I hate to jinx it … they are more exciting than the first season,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo bold said at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills yesterday about the second season of "True Detective." (via EW) But the question on everybody's mind is: who is going to take over from the fantastic performances by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson? Well, we might have our answer.

Miss Julie
It basically goes like this: if you put Jessica Chastain in something, we're going to watch. The actress has made the most of her breakout role in Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" to work with auteurs like John Hillcoat, Katherine Bigelow, Jeff Nichols, Christopher Nolan, Guillermo Del Toro and more. And she's added another big name to her CV with "Miss Julie."

Miss Julie
With Cannes now out of the way, three major festivals—Venice, Telluride and Toronto—are on the horizon, where even more new films will unspool for the first time. And one we're hoping/expecting to see is "Miss Julie" starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell. And today a batch of new images and a poster have dropped for the movie.

The Lobster
After "Dogtooth" and "Alps," we're pretty much ready for whatever Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos has ready to throw at us next, and it looks like he has a doozy coming our way. He's managed to round up an all-star cast for his next effort "The Lobster," but the story, as always, is anything but conventional.

Miss Julie Jessica Chastain Colin Farrell
While we didn't see much of Jessica Chastain at the multiplex in 2013, aside from the horror thing "Mama," 2014 promises to bring us a whole lot of the actress. Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" is, of course, already scheduled and the now-filming "A Most Violent Year" is expected to be ready for the awards season, also the dual movie "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby His & Hers" will likely see some kind of release in the next twelve months. And one more to keep an eye out for, at least on the festival circuit, is Liv Ullman's "Miss Julie."

Winter's Tale
Akiva Goldsman is one of those Hollywood screenwriters who has accrued a fair amount of animosity over the years, both because of his perceived lack of talent (he did have a hand in scripting "Batman & Robin," "The Da Vinci Code," and "Lost in Space," amongst others) and for his almost unparalleled level of success (he won a Screenplay Oscar for his work on Ron Howard's "A Beautiful Mind," and in the process taught us all that mental illness could be cured through the healing power of love). Regardless of what you think of him, Goldsman has genuine power, and for the past few years has used that power to secure funding for a lavish adaptation of novelist Mark Helprin's goopy 1983 supernatural romance "Winter's Tale." It is the ultimate Akiva Goldsman statement, mixing both his propensity for high concept gobbledygook with cloying, saccharine sentimentality. The result is a colossal folly the likes of which we haven't seen in years. It's truly unbelievable. We're still reeling.

This Valentine's Day, you'll have a few romantic options to choose from at the mulitplex: there will be the Kevin Hart-starring remake "About Last Night," another remake with "Endless Love," and the fantasy epic "Winter's Tale." And while we can't tell you which of these is the better movie, we certainly know which one is the most expensive.

Saving Mr. Banks
Though the general public doesn't always share their enthusiasm, Hollywood loves making movies about itself. Whether fictional or based in reality, it's rare for a year to pass without some kind of film about filmmaking, from classics like "Sunset Boulevard" and "Mulholland Drive" to, uh, not-classics like "Hitchcock." In recent years, "The Artist" and "Argo" have both been critical and commercial successes (and not coincidentally, Best Picture Oscar winners), and Disney are clearly hoping that the same kind of success follows for "Saving Mr. Banks," which examines one of the family friendly company's most beloved films, 1964's "Mary Poppins," and their own founder and figurehead, Walt Disney, here played by megastar Tom Hanks.
