X-Men: Days of Future Past
The perils of time travel plotting, and maintaining continuity and story logic, within the framework of an already-fantastical superhero universe, are not enviable for any filmmaker. But credit the folks behind “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” for not only negotiating the tricky liabilities of rewriting history, but also creating a world (and story) where if the timestream logic crumbles, it ultimately matters little.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
It would seem that Empire has a hotline right to the good stuff when it comes to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." Earlier this week, they debuted an (absurd) 25 magazine covers featuring the cast of characters from the upcoming superhero pileup (including one for Rogue, who has been cut from the movie), and now they've got a handful of new stills from the flick.

Touchy Feely Rosemarie DeWitt
There's a strange and opaque energy coursing through the veins of Lynn Shelton's languid fifth feature-length effort, "Touchy Feely." It's a little mysterious, to the film’s moody credit, and it’s a little unavailable and removed, to its detriment. Lead actress Rosemarie DeWitt admitted, "I didn't really understand the character when I read the script," in the post Sundance Q&A. "But then I told her I didn't understand her either," Shelton explained. And not only does this sentiment ring true, it’s this mild inscrutableness that muddies this often compelling, occasionally sublime, but ultimately uneven family drama about energy, connections (missed or otherwise) and healing.

Let's say you're making a comic book sequel, and let's you already have this cast: Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore and James Marsden. Do you add even more actors or do you think, "Y'know, maybe I'm good right here." Well, Bryan Singer was recently faced with this dilemma and made a choice. Can you guess which way he went?

It was about this time three years ago, when barely anyone could contain their excitement for Christopher Nolan's "Inception." The film was just a couple weeks away from release and subsequently blowing minds. The puzzle box blockbuster, perhaps one of the smarter summer movies to come along in quite a few years, managed to take dreams and multiple levels of reality, and make them breathlessly linear and easy to navigate. It was a pretty magnificent thrill ride all around but the nearly perfectly constructed movie wasn't without it's minor flaws.

Premiering at Sundance earlier this year, "Touchy Feely" was a movie that didn't quite connect with us (read our review). That being said, this new trailer for the movie reminded our reviewer of the great moments contained within, and this cast is certainly worth seeing in any movie, no matter what.

The East, Brit Marling
It’s a testament to the talents of Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling -- the writer/director and lead star of the Sundance hit, "The Sound of My Voice" -- that their indie thriller doesn’t look too out of place with its competition, especially during the crowded months of summer. The stylish thriller hits theaters at the end of the month, and a dozen new photos have arrived online via Fox Searchlight.

The East, Alexander Skarsgard, Brit Marling
With "Sound Of My Voice," director Zal Batmanglij, and co-writer and star Brit Marling, delved into the world of infiltration, exploring the repercussions of going down the rabbit hole and what happens when expectations are upended, and sympathies to cult behavior start to emerge. And it seems to be a theme that fascinates them as their latest collaboration in the upcoming thriller "The East" also dives into similar territory.
