Reclaim
While Nicolas Cage tends to get the brunt of criticism/derision for jobs likely accepted based on how many zeros appear on his paycheck, let's pour one out for John Cusack. He has been sliding into a comfortable groove of forgettable movies ("Drive Hard," "The Prince"), and so it goes with "Reclaim," which you probably didn't know existed. Well, it does.

The Voices
The fourth film from director Marjane Satrapi ("Persepolis," "Chicken with Plums"), "The Voices" navigates the line between the gruesome and the goofy with a step as nimble as a tight-rope walker going over a sea of broken glass. It’s an extraordinarily warm and funny movie about a likable schizophrenic murderer; it’s candy-colored and meticulously composed and yet also shiny with fresh wet blood. It’s weird and funny and perfectly-pitched, and to cap off its catalog of rare feats, it also features an immensely likable performance from Ryan Reynolds.

All the casting news that's fit to print! We reported last week on Dan Stevens attaching himself to the newest of Adam Sandler's periodic serious, grown-up movies (uh, not to be confused with his “Grown Ups” movies); this one's called "The Cobbler" and follows a cobbler (natch) who steps into his clients' lives as he mends their shoes.

It's been a while since we heard the name Alejandro Amenábar. After a terrific run of films including "Open Your Eyes," "The Others" and "The Sea Inside," the filmmaker stumbled slightly with his epic "Agora." But it looks like he's ready to return with a new film "Regression," which will star Ethan Hawke. Plot details are being kept secret for now, but it's being called an "elevated genre project," according to Variety, and one that will play with "our deepest primal fears." Production will begin next spring.

Emma Stone Marcia Gay Harden Magic In The Moonlight
While Woody Allen tends to keep all details of his movies close to the chest until he's damn well ready to let you know, we now know at least one thing about his next annual movie: it has a title.

While Vince Vaughn is best known for his motormouth in a wide array of comedies, he's been desperate to do something a bit more gritty. Over the past while, he's been lining up no shortage of more serious-minded fare like the the thriller "The Risk Agent," the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers" and road adventure "Triple Time." But it looks like another project has the momentum to cast the actor in a whole new light.

Ever since "PT 109," which detailed his WWII war record and was released while he was still in office, President John F. Kennedy has been catnip to Hollywood. After all, he was good looking, charismatic, had a dark secret life of womanising, among other things, and of course, was assassinated three years into his presidency—an event that inspires debate and conspiracy theories to this day. He's been the subject of great films (Oliver Stone's "JFK") and bad ones (recent miniseries "The Kennedys"), and been played by everyone from Cliff Robertson to James Marsden (in "Lee Daniels' The Butler"). This November marks the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Dealey Plaza, and as such, it was inevitable that there'd be some kind of film to mark the occasion. We just wish it wasn't as terrible as "Parkland," which premieres (in competition, inexplicably) at the Venice Film Festival today.

When it comes the assassination of JFK, it's still one of the most sensitive wounds in America's history, with a recent study suggesting that only 24% of Americans buy the official story that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman. But another case will be made for that theory with the upcoming "Parkland," a star-studded take on the events of November 22, 1963, and director Peter Landesman is making clear his intentions. "This is a movie about the ground truth from the ground level," he told USA Today.
