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.

Only lovers lef Alive, Cannes
The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival is quickly coming to a close. In fact the Un Certain Regard winners were just announced a short while ago (you can catch up with them right here). This year’s line-up, unlike years past, positioned a lot of heavyweights near the end of the festival, filmmakers like Roman Polanski, whose “Venus In Fur” screened today, and Jim Jarmusch, whose deadpan, odd and deeply enjoyable vampire movie “Only Lovers Left Alive” screened last night (you can read our review right here).

Only Lovers Left Alive
The last film to be unveiled in competition at Cannes this year is also one of the most anticipated: Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." A last-minute addition to the competition (presumably the print will still be wet, as it were, hence its late screening), it sees the idiosyncratic indie helmer assemble a superb cast including Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, for a film that promises to be that rarest of things; a fresh take on the vampire movie.

The summer movie season is nearly upon us, but one of the most hotly tipped summer movies (at least for film fans of a certain ilk) still doesn't have a release date in America: Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi extravaganza "Snowpiercer." The Weinstein Company bought the domestic rights to the movie, which concerns a train traversing a post-apocalyptic, snow-covered earth, and initially had planned to release it this summer, when the movie rolls out globally. But they haven't said much, so god only knows when it will wash up on American shores. Until then, a recently released behind-the-scenes clip (courtesy of The Film Stage) gives us our first look at "Snowpiercer" in motion.

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.

Chris Evans, Snow Piercer
In a few short weeks, the Cannes Film Festival will unveil their slate for 2013, and while speculation continues to swirl about which movies will make the trip to the south of France, one of the highly touted titles is Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer." It's certainly been engaged in a slow-build marketing campaign, with posters and images dripping out here and there, and today comes another bit of interesting material with character posters for everyone involved.

In terms of rising stars, one actor we'll likely hear much more of over the next couple of years is Texan Caleb Landry Jones. After debuting as "Boy on Bike" in the Coen Brothers' "No Country For Old Men," Jones has gone from strength to strength, appearing in "The Social Network" (don't worry, we missed his appearance too) before scoring the role of Banshee in Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class" and moving onto Brandon Cronenberg's "Antiviral" and Neil Jordan's vampire-tale "Byzantium" -- both of which will likely premiere in North America later this year.

Barring die hard fans of Kenneth Branagh TV show "Wallander," a year ago, not many could have picked Tom Hiddleston out of a line-up. But having been selected by Branagh to play Loki in "Thor," the young British actor's gone from strength to strength; playing opposite Rachel Weisz in Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea," cropping up among the ensemble cast of Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" and, in a few short months, reprising Loki as the villian in the hotly anticipated superhero team-up flick "The Avengers."

At the grand old age of 72, nearly fifty years after his first screen appearance, John Hurt is seemingly busier than ever. The actor has no fewer than eleven credits from 2011, ranging from his snarling supporting turn in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and high-class work in "Melancholia" to short films and cameos in blockbusters like 'Harry Potter' and "Immortals." The actor has always pursued work with a diverse range of directors, and shows no sign of stopping there as he's just signed up for the latest film for one of the most acclaimed names in international cinema in the last few years.
