The Rover
Fear The Man With Nothing Left To Lose. So goes the tagline of David Michod's "The Rover" starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and with the film now headed to Cannes, A24 has dropped a new trailer and a couple of posters for the thriller. And yes, it looks pretty damn good.

Hateship, Loveship
Following the smash success of "Bridesmaids," Kristen Wiig has actively subverted the obvious expectations of the career choices that would follow a hit film. The actress has largely gravitated toward small-scale projects ("Girl Most Likely," "Friends With Kids"), in roles that still fit within her wheelhouse, but also allow an opportunity for Wiig to exercise the kind of acting chops that more mainstream fare doesn't afford very often. But "Hateship Loveship" is Wiig's most atypical role and turn to date, leading an ensemble cast in a drama about a family adrift in the wake of death, and the one woman who manages to keep them from completely splitting apart.

Breathe In, Felicity Jones
Intimate, expressive, agonizing and beautifully rendered, director Drake Doremus' third feature-length effort, "Breathe In," will be familiar to those that know the indie filmmaker's small, but already distinctive oeuvre. While similar in tone and style, his latest effort is like the darker cousin to Dormeus' wistful relationship drama "Like Crazy," possessing an intensity and tension that's emotionally bruising.

Breathe In
Last year at the Sundance Film Festival, we noted that Drake Doremus' "Breathe In" was "one of the most emotionally poignant and heartbreaking movies" that screened in Park City. And if the film starring Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones and Amy Ryan may have fallen off your radar, be prepared to put it back on because it's not headed to theaters and it's one you'll want to make room for.

We're only three actors in, and "Black Mass" is already serving up an abundance of dudes we really like. When he's not falling over backwards into Helena Bonham Carter's closet for costumes, Johnny Depp does some of his most fascinating work, while Joel Edgerton usually owns whatever he's in. And with the pair already signed up for the gangster pic "Black Mass," they're letting one more major talent into their midst.

Hateship, Loveship
While Kristen Wiig has done her share of logical post-"Bridesmaids" roles in films like "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" and "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty," she has also used the opportunities presented by the hit comedy to try and stretch her acting wings. And she dials it way down for "Hateship Loveship," a romantic drama which finds her sharing the screen with Guy Pearce, Nick Nolte and Hailee Steinfeld.

The Rover
Four, far too long years have passed since David Michôd shook up the cinematic world with his nerve jangling gangland drama "Animal Kingdom," but it looks the wait has been worth it. The director is back with "The Rover," and judging by the first teaser trailer, he'll once again be putting you on the edge of your seat.

Breathe In
Director Drake Doremus may next head to sci-fi realms in order to explore his unique angle on romance and relationships, but while that project gears up there’s still the matter of his third feature film, “Breathe In," for stateside audiences. A full year after the Guy Pearce/Felicity Jones drama debuted at Sundance and then bowed theatrically in the U.K. that summer, a new U.S. trailer has landed to tease what we’ve been missing from the “Like Crazy” helmer.

Actress Nicole Kidman has the luxury of a strategist's approach to her film career, laying out several projects at any one time to consider the most appealing move. Going from the gonzo melodrama of “Stoker” to the regal beauty coming soon in “Queen of Monaco,” she's certainly after a great deal of variety lately, but seeing the recent slate of white-knuckle thrillers including “Captain Philips,” “Gravity,” and “All Is Lost” hit the screen, it seems for her next film she's looking to step into similarly distressing waters.
