Turn Jamie Bell
Can wigs and muskets replace meth labs and Heisenberg? AMC is still trying to figure out what will fill the monumental gap left behind by "Breaking Bad." Oh sure, there's the Saul Goodman spinoff show but you can't put all your money on one horse. "Low Winter Sun" rode into the fall season on a wave of hype only to underwhelm, with its chances of a second season still hanging in the balance (and looking bleaker each day). But can "Turn" uh, turn things around?

Nymphomaniac, trailer
While Americans fought the crowds and sometimes each other to score discounts on Black Friday, for the rest of the world it was business as usual. And for Lars von Trier and company, that meant yet another provocative clip from "Nymphomaniac," but this time with a bit of holiday spirit.

"Snowpiercer"
Few films without a firm release date (in most of the world, at least) have inspired as much chatter of late than Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer." The English-language debut of the South Korean mastermind behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" and "Mother," it features an all-star cast and a hefty budget, and was snapped up early on by The Weinstein Company. But after opening in South Korea in August, it's barely been seen in the rest of the world, with Harvey Weinstein holding the release in the territories he controls until he can cut a reported 20 minutes out to make it more palatable to western crowds. But one location in which Harvey Scissorhands doesn't hold the rights is France, and the director's cut opened there this week—appropriate, given that it's based on a French graphic novel called "Le Transperceneige." Eager to see what the fuss is about, we hopped on the Eurostar to Paris to check it out yesterday. And Harvey? We wouldn't touch a frame, because this might be the best pure science-fiction film since "Children of Men."

Review: 'Filth,' Based On The Irvine Welsh Novel, Starring James McAvoy

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.

So what's the deal U.S. distributors? How come no one has swooped in and bought "Filth" yet? It seems like the perfect fit for someone like IFC Midnight or Drafthouse Films, and we really hope the poor performance of "Trance" isn't the reason folks are cautious on this James McAvoy flick. Because while it's not going to win any awards, it looks like the perfect kind of outlandish, ridiculous Irvine Welsh adaptation we've been waiting for since...well, "Trainspotting."

Snowpiercer, Tilda Swinton
Jumping to conclusions before the facts are in is par for the course these days. As is the blind leap to vilify Harvey Weinstein over anything mildly controversial that he has even dared look sideways at (though yes, his track record is poor, but generally the dude knows what he’s doing), but at the Deauville American Film Festival in France, actress Tilda Swinton made some pointed, not-so-exactly subtle remarks about the brouhaha brewing over Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho's upcoming Weinstein sci-fi thriller, "Snowpiercer."

While it’s nearly a month away from release in South Korea, the Bong Joon-Ho-helmed adaptation of “Snowpiercer” is still without a release date in North America despite being picked up by The Weinstein Company last fall. We’ve already seen the first trailer for the film and now we have a bunch of new images that give us a better look at the ambitious post-apocalyptic film.

The World's End
It seems that if you want some vision of the world coming an end, you have more than a few options at the movies this year; on Wednesday "This Is The End" comes to theaters, and numerous sci-fi blockbusters this summer ("Oblivion," "After Earth") have already tackled apocalyptic visions of Earth forever changed and humanity forced to leave. Some extra posters for a couple of the other flavors of big and scary end-times are here, continuing cinema's determination to make 2013 the year it all ended.

So remember a couple of months ago when the internet momentarily freaked when they though they got a first look at Tilda Swinton in "Snowpiercer"? Well, it turned out be an old photo from a fashion shoot, but she's finally revealed in these new character posters for "Snowpiercer" and it's still pretty surprising. Awesomely so.
