Some movies just feel achingly British – period costumes, brittle accents, the fact that the whole movie looks like it was shot through a glass of iced tea – and "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding" is one of those movies. Please keep in mind that it's called "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding," which might be the most British title of anything since Hugh Grant's notorious "The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain." And even though "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding" looks like the kind of movie you put a doily under before watching, we kind of want to see it, mostly due to its two leads (Felicity Jones and Luke Treadaway) and the pleasurably Masterpiece Theater vibe of this first trailer.

Quick! Name the female leads of the Jack Ryan movies! Yeah, that's what we thought, but those previous efforts are generally such testosterone-driven sausage parties, you can be forgiven for forgetting if any actresses were involved. But in rebooting the character for a whole new generation, Paramount is hoping to give Jack Ryan someone to snuggle with at the end of the night.

Guy Pearce has been having a pretty damn good year in 2012. The actor's been moving towards stardom since "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert" and "L.A. Confidential" fifteen years ago, and looked to turn into a megastar after "Memento," but when big-budget studio picture "The Time Machine" was a flop, he seemed to shift back into being a character actor, delivering many memorable turns ("The Proposition," "Factory Girl") but mostly resisiting stardom. But in the last few years, he's had a flurry of success: small roles in two Oscar-winners in two years with "The Hurt Locker" and "The King's Speech," a homegrown hit with "Animal Kingdom," and an Emmy for "Mildred Pierce."

Having found critical acclaim with his directorial debut "Coriolanus" last year, Ralph Fiennes has been determined not to follow fellow Brit actors Gary Oldman and Tim Roth in letting years pass before he helms another picture. Even before his first picture was in theaters, Fiennes was planning his follow-up: an adaptation of Claire Tomalin's "The Invisible Woman," which tells the story of the relationship between author Charles Dickens and Nelly Ternan, the much-younger actress who became his lifelong mistress.

There's nothing more frustrating than wasting talent. Seeing a promising young filmmaker turn in a movie that just doesn't work is as disappointing as seeing a good cast squandered by lesser material. Unfortunately, both are common but unavoidable side effects of attending film festivals and the latter is true of "Cheerful Weather For The Wedding," a lightweight British romance which had its World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last night. The film squanders not one but two young actors who turned in breakout performances in two of last year's most acclaimed indies. "Like Crazy" lead Felicity Jones stars as Dolly, an anxious bride on the day of her wedding while "Attack The Block" thesp Luke Treadaway is Joseph, an old friend and possibly unrequited romance. We meet the bride-to-be getting sick with nerves and swigging rum in her room while Joseph shows up early to wish the bride well and possibly just try to run away with her before the nuptials. Oh yes, this is that movie.

Bigger things are just around the corner for "Like Crazy" star Felicty Jones. With the period-based vibrator comedy "Hysteria" on the way to theaters, and her untitled movie with Drake Doremus sure to arrive at the festival circuit later this year, her star is only going to continue to rise. And later on in 2012, she'll team up with Ralph Fiennes for "The Invisible Woman." But coming first is another festival apperance by the actress, this time at Tribeca with her latest effort, "Cheerful Weather For A Wedding."

Tuesday, February 7th, marked the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens, and as a result, the author is one of the hottest properties around at the moment. Among the many Dickens related projects in the works, the coming year will bring two star-laden versions of "Great Expectations," one an excellent BBC TV miniseries with Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson (watch the trailer below, courtesy of Time), the other a Mike Newell film with Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham-Carter and "War Horse" star Jeremy Irvine.
