BitTorrent, perhaps one of few words that can strike fear in the hearts of movie executives, has long been synonymous with piracy. But Cinedigm are hoping to change the game. Today they tried out a new marketing tactic, one that embraces the filesharing tool and tries to use it promotion, and while time will only tell if the industry and movie viewers dig this kind of personalized touch, it has resulted in a pretty generous look at "Arthur Newman."

A movie adaptation of Emma Forrest’s memoir “Your Voice In My Head” has been in the works for quite some time now. David Yates signed on to direct the film back in December of 2011 with Emma Watson and Stanley Tucci taking the lead roles soon after. But scheduling conflicts caused David Yates to drop out of the project last spring and with Yates out of the picture, looks like Emma Watson is on her way out too.

One movie that's showing up on a handful of top ten lists for 2012 -- including our own Drew Taylor -- is the time-bending "Looper." Indeed, in our review of the film we called it Rian Johnson's finest achievement yet. And with the movie arriving on home video this week, there is even more to dig into, including some stuff that didn't make it into the final cut.

As of Monday, Oscar ballots have been sent out, online voting (for the first time ever) is underway, and the endgame of the 2012 awards season approaches. And thanks to the cottage industry of awards predictions and precursors, the narrative is already in place. If you've been talked up as an Oscar contender for the last several months, if you've already been anointed by critics groups or the Golden Globes, then you're seriously in the race. If not, then you should probably make other plans for that Sunday in February.

While we're no closer to finding out what Christopher Nolan's next directorial project will be, a film is gearing up that is something very near; the directorial debut of Nolan's regular DoP Wally Pfister, an original sci-fi project called "Transcendence," which has already attracted some serious A-list talent in the shape of Johnny Depp, who's going to be playing the film's lead. The likes of Christian Bale, James McAvoy, Tobey Maguire, Christoph Waltz, Ewan McGregor and Tom Hardy have all been connected to the film of late, but now word's firming up on who might be joining Depp in the project.

Despite the fact that “The Avengers 2” doesn’t even have a script and that Marvel hasn’t completely nailed down their Phase 2 plans yet, there are already rumors about the new characters that would appear in the film, and even about who will play them. So grab some salt and take a seat while we talk about stuff that’s not even close to happening.

After the cinematic wasteland that was August, September is shaping up to be much better, especially with Rian Johnson’s “Looper” arriving at the end of the month. The sci-fi film was one of our highest recommended films to see this month -- second only to Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” -- and we have a whole bunch of new stills from the film along with the soundtrack details.

What if we are all Arthur Newman? This is the question that director Dante Ariola and screenwriter Becky Johnston beg in "Arthur Newman," their tepid, imaginatively uninvolved drama about two strangers that fall in love while trying to escape their banal past lives. Ariola and Johnston’s film follows a rag-tag couple, played by Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, who bond when they discover that they both want to run away from their respective families and create new lives for themselves. But because "Arthur Newman" is a drab, psychologically flat portrait of misfit lovers in the process of self-fashioning new identities, we never really learn who its two main characters aspire to be or in what new direction they want to take their lives.
