We gotta admit, we sort of forgot this one was happening, but we have to say, we're glad it is. It's coming on three years since David Michod made his mark with "Animal Kingdom," and now he's back with a thriller that goes to the great outdoors.

Watch the new "Iron Man 3" trailer
After counting it down for the past few days, Marvel has finally lifted the curtain on the new trailer for "Iron Man 3," so strap in and get ready for the ride. And you know what? You probably won't be shocked to learn that this likely won't be Robert Downey Jr.'s or Tony Stark's last ride at the superhero rodeo.

The marketing machine (or should that be the Stark-eting machine?...no? Sorry...) behind “Iron Man 3” is now working at full capacity so expect to be bombarded with little bits and pieces from the Marvel three-quel between now and its April/May release date (and a new trailer next week, fyi). Disney will have high expectations for Shane Black’s take on Tony Stark, and its performance should give us a good gauge of just how much of a boost the $1.5 billion-grossing “The Avengers” will give each of the standalone Marvel movies. With the first two "Iron Man" movies grossing $585 million and $624 million respectively, there’s still the slim possibility that Marvel could have another billion dollar hit on their hands this summer.

After a pretty rough second installment, there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about "Iron Man 3." There's the presence of veteran action writer/director Shane Black ("Lethal Weapon," "The Last Boy Scout," "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") getting behind the camera, and a pretty great cast joining the usual franchises faces, with folks like Ben Kingsley and Rebecca Hall on board. And then there's Guy Pearce, who we'd watch in just about anything, taking a rare detour to franchise land as well. And he's received his very own character poster for the movie.

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.

Yep, it's even more from the Sundance Film Festival with a returning director, a new biopic on a late great, and one of world cinema's most treasured helmers all with something to prove.

Whatever Guy Pearce does, we're going to sit up and pay attention. Over the past year and a half or so, the actor has played a charming cad in Todd Haynes' breathtaking "Mildred Pierce," tried on his action hero pants for "Lockout," popped up in "Prometheus" and sneered his way through "Lawless." He's got a number of interesting movies on the way with an equally diverse slate, with everything from "Iron Man 3" to "Like Crazy" director Drake Doremus' next effort on his plate. And now another intriguing movie is being added to his schedule.

Homophobe Much? What’s With All The Effeminate, Fey (And Often Blonde) Villains In Hollywood?

Effeminate, campy, queenish villains in Hollywood aren't exactly a new thing. Examples go as far back as say, Claude Rains' bad guy in "The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938), Peter Lorre as the delicate Mr. Cairo in “The Maltese Falcon,” (his business cards are gardenia-scented for crying out loud), Conrad Veidt as the SS villain in “Casablanca,” and Charles Laughton in “Mutiny on the Bounty” (1935), and can be these types can be found in plenty of eras (Vernon Wells as the leathery, Pillsbury Doughboy-esque villain in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s "Commando" is sort of known as the plump Freddie Mercury of action movie villains).

Just when you thought trailers for trailers couldn't get any dumber, Marvel has decided to create two for what better be a helluva spot for "Iron Man 3" tomorrow because we're sick of posting about this movie already.

Well, congrats to the folks behind "Hateship, Friendship" for managing to keep the details on the downlow, to the point where with the film starting to shoot next week in New Orleans, we're only getting details now. And with a promising cast and solid source material to work from, this is one to keep an eye on.
