Need For Speed
“Need for Speed” is on its way, and on the (w)heels of a Super Bowl spot and a slew of featurettes and clips comes... more featurettes and clips, setting up the premise (uh, driving expensive cars really fast, while a guy in a helicopter tells you where to go) and talking up the film's roots in the massive “Need for Speed” videogame franchise.

Need For Speed
As of 2009, 140 million copies of the "Need For Speed" video game had been sold, and who knows how many countless more million units have been shifted since, but will that audience show up to see the big-screen version of their favorite pedal pushing console time waster? That's the riddle Hollywood eternally tries to solve with each video game adaptation though they're hoping they got it right here.

A Long Way Down
Oh dear. [D]. Sort of tempted to leave the review at that, to be honest, but what would the internet do with all of that white space? So here is a bunch more words about it, and no matter how haphazardly they’re arranged we can take some comfort in the fact that it’s with seemingly more care than went into a certain screenplay.

Need For Speed
Aaron Paul is going from breaking bad to breaking speed limits (sorry), and trying on his franchise wings with "Need For Speed," which is using a Super Bowl ad slot to get you in the racing mood.

That Awkward Moment
Later this year, Zac Efron will co-star with Seth Rogen in "Neighbors," an outrageous bro comedy about the war that develops between a young father and the college kid who moves in next door. The R-rated laffer will give Efron plenty of space to riff opposite his more seasoned comedy co-star, adding a different dimension to his persona, one that is still somewhat defined by his Disney past. But before that, Efron attempts his own bro-tacular comedy with "That Awkward Moment," an effort that while indebted to the breezy, easy camaraderie of the Judd Apatow productions that made Rogen famous, has no idea what makes them funny in the first place.

One of the surprise hits of the year was this summer’s cheap Ethan Hawke-starring horror movie “The Purge,” and with the $3 million-budgeted film making nearly $90 million worldwide, you better believe Universal wants a re-up.

Yes, we know Aaron Paul has a name but let's face it, we still can't forget "Breaking Bad" and neither can most folks considering how much the "alternate ending" to the series was passed around over the weekend. So, for our purposes at the moment, "Need For Speed" stars Jesse Pinkman and once again he's going to be yelling at stuff, have a pretty girl at this side all while trying to outfox a wily criminal.

Beautiful Ruins Imogen Poots
With seven years passing since Todd Field's last film, 2006's "Little Children," fans of the director have had to be patient in waiting for his next movie. Taking a Stanley Kubrick-like stretch between pictures (the late filmmaker was a mentor to Field, who had a small role in "Eyes Wide Shut"), five years spanned between his debut feature "In The Bedroom" and his aforementioned sophomore film. But it looks like things are finally happening for "Beautiful Ruins," as the project now has a lead actress.

One thing we resolved early on, having read around on the subject a little: to try, try, try to get through just the first sentence of our review of “Filth,” the Jon S. Baird-directed adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel, without mentioning “Trainspotting.” So, obviously, we’re pretty disappointed with ourselves. But disappointment is somewhat the order of the day, unfortunately, as it’s a comparison that occurred to us, not often to the benefit of "Filth," throughout our viewing of the film. However, Danny Boyle’s modern classic doth bestride the world of the Irvine Welsh adaptation like a colossus, its shadow seemingly impossible to escape from, so there is a glass-half-full way of looking at it: “Filth” is undoubtedly better than also-rans “The Acid House” and “Ecstasy.” In fact, when it comes to capturing some of the gonzo, amoral, substance-fueled verve that Welsh’s novels can display, “Filth” can take the silver medal with its head held relatively high. And that it can is largely down to two things: all the rest of the cast, and James McAvoy.
