Begin Again, Keira Knightley
This summer, Keira Knightley is going sing in "Begin Again," the latest from "Once" writer/director John Carney. But she won't be alone, as the upcoming film also features the, uh, talents of Maroon 5 lead man Adam Levine, and a fresh clip is here showing the two of them at work.

Begin Again
So, remember the music industry? Okay, so it still exists, but the notion of an A&R guy stumbling across the next big thing in a local bar and pushing their talent seems rather quaint in an era when artists have no shortage of tools to promote themselves. But we suppose a movie about a musician using Bandcamp, blogs and Facebook to build up their fanbase would be pretty dull, so here we are with "Begin Again" starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo.

Robert Pattinson’s clout-building continues in 2014 though it technically has barely begun. Pattinson’s post-“Twilight” career rehab started with David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and the film world took notice. Auteurs, perhaps needing a viable start to greenlight their projects, took notice too. Werner Herzog came knocking (“Queen Of The Desert”), James Gray (“The Lost City of Z”), Cronenberg again (“Maps to the Stars”), Anton Corbijn ("Life") and many others. One of the earliest adopters was Aussie filmmaker David Michôd who quickly cast him in “The Rover” opposite Guy Pearce.

Laggies
Given that the arrested development subgenre of comedy is chiefly the domain of men and man children, it’s nice to see the field finally tackled from a refreshing female perspective. However, while an admirable vantage point of the trapped in adultlescence genus, “Laggies,” the new film by director Lynn Shelton, is often wildly implausible (even for a comedy), positions its sympathies in questionable places and is a mess of a movie that lands all over the place.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Today, most people associate the character of Jack Ryan—originally created by author Tom Clancy, in a number of blockbuster novels—as a kind of hard-hitting action hero. This is thanks in large part to the series of films that began with 1990's masterful thriller "The Hunt for Red October" and continued with two Harrison Ford-as-Ryan entries, as well as a forgettable stand-alone starring Ben Affleck as the brainy CIA analyst. But in the novels and best parts of the earlier movies, Ryan is described and dramatized as something of a nerd, so encased in his own thoughts that he finds it difficult to leap into action. This week's aggressively mediocre "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," refashions the character (this time played by Chris Pine) into a man of immediate action, and in doing so drains him of anything that made him a relatable human being.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
No one joins the CIA just to work as an analyst.

And with Paramount's new (potential) franchise launching in just a few days, a couple more clips are here to entice you to buy tickets.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
With Chris Pine already at the lead of one franchise, playing Captain Kirk in the ongoing "Star Trek" films, will he have another series under his belt in role of Jack Ryan? You can bet Paramount are hoping so, as their effort to revive the classic Tom Clancy character arrives next week with "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," and they are eager to get the word out.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Obviously, you've already seen our list of 10 Movies To See This Month and booked your tickets for all of them: but just in case it slipped your mind, here's some promoterial (you can have that word for free, marketing departments) for “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” to get you in the mood. As we noted over in that article, the film is aiming to revive a character previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck: Chris Pine takes the role this time, with Kenneth Branagh directing and playing the villain viz a szick Rrrrrrussian akzent (there's a certain strange joy to be taken in the way Branagh has grown out of serious Shakesperian thespianism and is enjoying his 50s directing massive action blockbusters).
