Young Ones
A film that had our own Rodrigo Perez, "thinking about, chewing on and lingering [on]" after seeing it at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, "Young Ones" seems like the kind of smart, original movie that genre fans should flip for. And a new trailer is here to take you into the dusty, treacherous world conjured by director Jake Paltrow.

The Young Ones
It’s been a while since we've heard anything about the dystopian Sundance film “Young Ones.” Screen Media bought the film in May, but the months between its Utah debut and sale were rather quiet. That’s changing, with the release of two new trailers. Presumably a release date is not far behind.

Slow West
This year, you'll be getting Michael Fassbender delivered in a variety of flavors. We've already seen him in blockbuster mode with the hit "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," later this summer he's at the center of the bonkers indie comedy "Frank," and should post-production finish in time, he'll get Shakespearian with "Macbeth." And oh yeah, there's one more too: "Slow West." And the first image from the film has arrived.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
So far, the promos for "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" have been intense, highlighting the action, tension and fear the sequel will be bringing to the story kicked off in the solid "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes." But it's not all monkey vs. man mayhem as this latest promo highlights.

A Birder's Guide To Everything
In general, teenage obsessions are generally fairly obvious—music, comics, movies, clothes—but there are always a few teens whose interests, at least at the time, seem completely inexplicable, to everyone but themselves. So, it's not quite a surprise that the high school birdwatching club in "A Birder's Guide To Everything" consists solely of David (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Timmy (Alex Wolff) and Peter (Michael Chen), three best friends surviving adolescence by sticking with each other, and keeping an eye on the sky. But feathered distractions can't keep the changes from coming in David's life, and one weekend will see him give chase to a rare bird, and making peace with both his past and future.

A Birder's Guide To Everything
While Hollywood likes to show teenagers in movies getting up to no good, co-writer/director Rob Meyer has a different story to tell with the coming-of-age comedy "A Birder's Guide To Everything," where the only thing these kids wield is a pair of binoculars.

Young Ones, Jake Paltrow
Part western, part science fiction, wholly original—it’s not easy to pin down — writer/director Jake Paltrow’s latest film, “Young Ones,” which premiered this week at the Sundance Film Festival (read our review here), is worth an examination.

The Young Ones
In the not so distant future, a catastrophic drought has ravaged the United States turning it into an arid dystopian wasteland. While citizens have migrated away from the most heavily affected and devastated areas, some of the more hard-bitten and prideful survivors have refused to leave their lands, clinging to barren plots and drying water wells in the hopes that rains will come again and replenish the parched landscape.

While Michael Fassbender's plan to make a western earlier this year with Lynne Ramsay was kiboshed when that project hit a few rocky patches, leading to the exit of both the director and actor, it looks like the thesp has gotten back on the horse. He's got another gunslinging flick on way, with some interesting folks helping out.

After receiving rave reviews for his animated feature “Waltz with Bachir” in 2008, Israeli director Ari Folman divided critics with his new movie “The Congress” at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes this year. Our reviewer on the field described the piece as ambitious, unique and bold but "overloaded with too many ideas". The film is "regularly diverting from any sort of central narrative to follow tenuous and ill-explained threads that end up in a foggy limbo" and "it poses the old question of whether the immense ambition of the project should be admired over the fact that it falls down on so many of those ambitions."
