“Gangster Squad” may have earned the title of First Major DisappointmentOof 2013, but new movies from both Park Chan-Wook and Steven Soderbergh around the corner, are enough to keep morale high. Park is of course taking a gamble with his first English-language film “Stoker,” but with the Rooney Mara/Channing Tatum thriller “Side Effects,” Soderbergh has his retirement in mind, looking to exit on a high note as two new images and a few choice quotes appear to suggest.

Taking a page out of their playbook for “Contagion,” Steven Soderbergh’s third collaboration (and his penultimate film) with screenwriter Scott Z. Burns is dipping its toes into viral marketing with a site for the antidepressant at the center of “Side Effects.”

The first two months of the New Year are usually viewed as a dumping ground, but in recent years critical and box office success stories like "Shutter Island" and "Safe House" have shown that it's a quiet frame where genre fare can do tremendously well. That's why we're not worried an iota about Steven Soderbergh's forthcoming "Side Effects," which got the ball rolling a few weeks ago with a pretty fantastic first trailer. And while things are on the down low for the moment, a few more stills from the movie have popped up.

Oh hey, there you are "Anna Karenina." Since unspooling overseas at the tail end of the summer, and hitting TIFF for its North American bow, word has been very, very quiet on Joe Wright's latest effort. And it's a real shame because the movie is both spectacular and moving, doing justice to the emotion in Leo Tolstoy's tale of doomed love, but giving the material an enjoyably indulgent theatrical treatment. The big word on this movie is that it was shot all on a single soundstage with interconnected sets, and while the artificiality shows through sometimes (intentionally), it never detracts from the story or the epic feel of the movie.

Well, we're breathing a bit of a sigh of relief. Just over a week ago it was reported that Werner Herzog's "next project" would be an adaptation of DBC Pierre's "Vernon God Little." It made us a bit worried that his Gertrude Bell biopic had been put on ice, but not only is it still moving, it has a new cast member and a start date on the horizon.

If the prospect of "Air Force One" stars Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman once again squaring off isn't enough to get you at least interested in "Paranoia," we're not sure what else to tell you. But for everyone else, the first official pics have arrived to give you a taste of what's to come.

Jude Law Confirms He's In Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' Says He "Pestered" Director For Years For A Part

Wes Anderson must be feeling pretty vindicated these days. After a couple of films more cooly received by critics, in "The Life Aquatic" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and a charming animated film that unfortunately flopped at the box office, Anderson needed to come back strong, and fortunately, that's exactly what he did with this year's "Moonrise Kingdom," still one of the year's most widely liked films, and the idiosyncratic director's most successful picture since "The Royal Tenenbaums."

Review: 'Anna Karenina' Is A Bold Reimagining Of A Classic That's (Mostly) Thrilling & Inventive

When it was announced that Joe Wright was going to direct a new film version of Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," starring his cinematic muse Keira Knightley, most people probably knew what to expect. After all, the two had collaborated on both Wright's debut "Pride & Prejudice" and "Atonement" (both also produced by Working Title Films) and it was easy to assume that their take on the Russian classic would be along similar lines; a handsome period piece taking advantage of the best British actors available, and with a few showy camera touches that would set it apart from your average costume drama.

It seems folks are still divided on Joe Wright's undeniably audacious take on Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." After a trailer and a generous six minute clip, some haven't cottoned to Wright's approach, while this writer, at least, has fallen for what has been on display so far, something that at least looks like a fresh approach to literary drama tropes. And with the film just over a month away from its U.K. release and festival bow on this side of the ocean, another peek at the movie has arrived.

The fall filmgoing season won't be lacking film's of ambition, from Paul Thomas Anderson's 65mm look at the formation of a cult in "The Master" to Baz Luhrmann's 3D take on "The Great Gatsby" to the fantastical razzle dazzle of Ang Lee's 3D "Life Of Pi." But also aiming squarely for your eyes and heart as well is Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina" and this generous six minute clip showcases a film that is swinging all the way to fences.
