We're coming to the end of our week previewing possible contenders for the 2014 Academy Awards, having already examined Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress. There's one more piece to come after this, but right now, we're going to take a look at the trickiest categories to predict this far out: Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

It’s been four years since the surprise international success of the Swedish-language version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and early next month director Niels Arden Oplev will re-team with Noomi Rapace for his English-language debut, the crime thriller “Dead Man Down.” And we've got some exclusive new pics from the film of the actress, along with her co-star Colin Farrell.

As the solid ratings for the dumber-than-a-bag-of-especially-stupid-rocks Kevin Bacon-starring procedural "The Following" have proven, serial killers are enduring draws in popular culture. But while you can barely change the channel on TV without glimpsing some one-time big-screen star wading through a bloody crime scene, they're not what they once were at the movies. There have been great serial killer movies of late ("Zodiac," "The Snowtown Murders"), but their bleak take on the subject matter saw them draw small audiences, while more mainstream fare like "Alex Cross" and "The Raven" were, well, dreadful.

Haters to the back. We called this one. Or at least the Jessica Chastain part because, well, she basically said as much already. During a press conference for "Mama" reporters asked what was next for the "Zero Dark Thirty" actress. "It hasn't been announced but it might be a Strindberg thing. It hasn't been announced yet," she said. Being that many of us understand what that means, we asked, does that mean the adaptation of "Miss Julie" that Ingmar Bergman's muse Liv Ullmann was scheduled to direct? And yes, Chastain essentially confirmed with a physical gesture (much beyond the goofy face of a Matthew Vaughn character actor mind you; and that didn't pan out).

“Seven Psychopaths” was released back in October to rather tepid fanfare. The film was marginally successful financially and may not have been as beloved as Martin McDonagh’s first feature-length film “In Bruges,” but it still got its fair share of positive reviews. The picture will look to gain some more fans as the Blu-Ray/DVD arrives in stores today, and to honor its release, a deleted scene has just been posted online.

It's coming on nearly four years since the original Swedish language version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" rode the wave of the popularity of the books, becoming a hit in its own right and making a star out of Noomi Rapace in the process. But since then, director Niels Arden Oplev has been keeping a low profile. Dabbling in television work for the most part while developing a couple of feature gigs, the helmer will make his Hollywood debut in 2013 with "Dead Man Down." And he's hoping that Rapace is the good luck charm that will work some magic a second time around.

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.

After more than forty images and three TV spots debuted for "Seven Psychopaths" last week, you would think that were wouldn't be much left to show from the movie without feeling like you've seen the whole thing already. But for those who just can't wait until next week, a few more peeks have arrived.

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.
