The first images in "The East" – the new thriller from Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling, the team who made last year's underrated cult thriller "Sound Of My Voice" – are grainy footage of intruders breaking into someone's home juxtaposed with images of seagulls covered in oil. We are told through voiceover that this is the home of a CEO whose company was responsible for dumping millions of gallons of oil into the ocean.

Alister Grierson signed on early to direct “Mary Mother of Christ,” but only lately have any new casting hints begun to trickle out, and they're a reliably fitting bunch to boot.

The name might still only be vaguely familiar, but 2011 is Felicity Jones' year. She's been working for some time, lighting up the likes of "Brideshead Revisited," "Cheri" and "Cemetery Junction," but she got the year off to a killer start by picking up Best Actress at Sundance for her turn in Drake Doremus' "Like Crazy," while the rom-com "Chalet Girl" was something of a sleeper hit in the U.K in the spring. She's got plenty more on the way, including another project with Doremus that'll film shortly, but first along is another home grown picture, the coming-of-age tale "Albatross," and The Guardian just premiered the film's trailer.
