"Pride" may not be on your radar, but it should be. It debuted this spring at the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight where the film swept us off our feet, with Oliver Lyttelton calling it in his review, "a prime display of a rousing crowd-pleaser done right." The movie is headed stateside to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will make its North American premiere, and with trailers and clips now online, there's no better way to see what it's all about.

It sometimes feels that the British film industry only makes about three or four different kinds of movies: dreadful gangster films that rarely get a release abroad, gritty social realism pictures, period costume dramas, and semi-quirky comedies with a tearjerking side, exemplified by something like "Billy Elliot" or "The Full Monty," but more often turning out like "Calendar Girls" or "Song For Marion."

The Woman In Gold Andrew Garfield Helen Mirren
Like some kind of Irish acting shark, Liam Neeson cannot stop working or else he dies. Though he’s already set to shoot “Taken 3” this spring—with no one being taken, strangely enough—The Wrap reports the “Non-Stop” actor has been spotted filming a scene on the set of the long-awaited “Entourage” movie opposite Jeremy Piven.

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor are screen icons of apparently imperishable importance and fascination, and so the screen keeps coming back to them, making Elizabeth Taylor the only person in history (so far, but we imagine it will stay this way) to be portrayed by both Lindsay Lohan and Helena Bonham-Carter. Lohan's “Liz & Dick” has thankfully been and gone, but behold, a clip from the BBC's upcoming “Burton & Taylor,” following on from the recent trailer.

You would think that legends like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton deserve better treatment that kind of cheap, cranked out TV biopics, but we guess not. They aren't superheroes.... Last fall, we saw Lindsay Lohan and That Other Guy do their thing in the roundly derided Lifetime effort "Liz & Dick." Now the Brits are having a go at it with "Burton & Taylor" but at least they're bringing some classier people along for the ride.

There are few movie stars of the classic era who continue to captivate -- perhaps for more salacious reasons -- than Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Their relationship was tabloid fodder at the time, and since then, people have continued to be fascinated by their on-screen pairings and their off-screen ups and downs, which included being married twice in less than two years. Last year, we saw what a cheapie version of this story looks like with the Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler-starring "Liz & Dick," and while we wait to see what Paramount does with the rights to Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger's book "Furious Love," across the pond the tale is being tackled.

Dominic West Says The Original Marketing Plan For 'John Carter' Was Way Better Than What Was Eventually Used

As 2012 draws to a close and the year in movies gets reduced to a bunch of lists, when folks look back on the flops, Disney's "John Carter" will be at the top of the pile next to "Battleship." The studio's long-in-the works sci-fi adventure completely missed with audiences, divided critics, and was at best viewed as a missed opportunity, or worst as an expensive folly. Disney took a $200 million hit on the project, it may have cost Rich Ross his job, and while a small contingent of fans are clamoring for a sequel, that's probably never going to happen. Instead, we can continue to nitpick what went wrong with the movie, and most everyone can agree the marketing did "John Carter" no favors.

Review: Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Is Flawed, But Also Kind Of A Blast

All too often, the horror genre is at the less respectable end of the critical spectrum, with cheap, gory exploitation fare designed to bring in hordes of teenagers on opening weekend, and not do much beyond that. But there have been exceptions over the years, in the form of a classier kind of scare fest, a tradition that goes back to films like "The Innocents," and that is currently kept alive by international filmmakers like Guillermo Del Toro, Alejandro Amenabar and Juan Antonio Bayona.

While the Rebecca Hall and Dominic West-led “The Awakening” has been rolling out in theaters across the world for some time now, the fright show is only just receiving a Stateside release in limited run theaters next week. While buzz on the film hasn’t exactly been deafening, one of our writers found it to be “flawed, but also kind of a blast,” and the film’s trailer certainly gave off a distinct atmosphere of true horror.
