It has been a very good week for "Zero Dark Thirty." The film has now pushed itself to the front of the Oscar conversation by taking three prizes from the New York Film Critics Circle on Monday and another three from the National Board Of Review today, with director Kathryn Bigelow and actress Jessica Chastain looking like the ones to beat (at the moment). While many critics and industry types have already seen the film, the rest of us have to wait, so here's a few more peeks to tide you over.

"Electric, sprawling and ambitious," that's what we had say about Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty," which has started screening for critics as it heads into awards-contending limited release in just a couple of weeks. Indeed, it's one of the hottest conversation pieces at the moment, and a few more pics take you on the ground.

Marvel sure does like their British and Aussie actors. With "Guardians Of The Galaxy" now less than two years from release, the studio is starting to get the cast in place for what is easily the most ambitious project on their slate (it has an alien tree creature and a pistol-wielding, talking raccoon, guys), and a ridiculously long laundry list of actors have been revealed as possibilities to star.

Though born in New Zealand, Andrew Dominik, the director of this week's "Killing Them Softly," moved to Australia at the age of 2, and was raised there. And around thirty years later, he provided a firecracker up the arse of the nation's film industry by directing "Chopper," a biopic of colorful criminal Chopper Read that made Eric Bana a global star, and firmly launched Dominik as a filmmaker to watch.

Get Oscar ready? We'll see, but any thoughts that this was going to be mostly just a bunch of guys in rooms looking at charts and maps is dead wrong. The brand new and meaty trailer for "Zero Dark Thirty" has landed, and it's pretty captivating stuff.

Nash Edgerton is a man of many hats. A stuntman and coordinator of some reknown who has worked on everything from "The Matrix" trilogy to "The Thin Red Line" to "Moulin Rouge!", he's also a filmmaker, likely best known for the thriller "The Square" but also earned strong notices for his recent short, "Bear." But it appears he has a friend in Bob Dylan as well. Little did we know, but he's directed two videos for the legend already, "Must Be Santa Claus" and "Beyond Here Lies Nothin,' " and now a third has arrived.

When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get something lavish, operatic and heavily styilized, with party scenes that finally lived up to some of Fitzgerald's descriptions.

He's firmly on his way to the A-list after the critically acclaimed "Warrior," not to mention his upcoming starring roles in "The Great Gatsby" and Kathryn Bigelow's Bin Laden movie, but Australian actor Joel Edgerton's ambitions don't stop at simply appearing on screen. With his brother Nash and several other filmmakers from back home, he set up collective Blue Tongue Films, who've been behind films like "Animal Kingdom," and he has been active as a writer and even director, penning "The Square" with Nash back in 2008, and making his directorial debut with the short "Monkeys" last year.

It never hurts to gain a little financial boost for your film, and in this case, the generous folks at Screen Australia have announced that they've lent a hand to two notable projects catching our eye: a re-teaming of Nash and Joel Edgerton for a feature that has the duo writing and Nash directing, as well as a return from "Sleeping Beauty" helmer Julia Leigh who is once again adapting one of her own books for the big screen.
