Before I Go To Sleep
The elusive nature of memory can certainly be good fodder for drama. The idea of things remembered, forgotten or selectively recalled motivating the actions of a character is rich territory, but unfortunately, it doesn't really seem to be put to good effect in the forthcoming "Before I Go To Sleep," even when navigated by a cast like this.

Before I Go To Sleep
In "Memento," Guy Pearce uses Post-it notes, Polaroids and other visual clues to overcome his memory loss to find the truth behind a murder. But maybe all he needed was a good doctor. In the forthcoming "Before I Go To Sleep," Nicole Kidman will also get to the truth behind a crime, thanks to a handy physician, all while trying to manage a condition that sees her memory wiped out every time she goes to bed.

Anna
It is no spoiler to say that actor Noah Taylor pops up in a key role late in the adequate-at-best, occasionally involving thriller “Anna.” Like all of the appearances of the rail-thin “Shine” star, it is a welcome one; look no further than his recent work on “Game of Thrones” or his wonderfully obnoxious supporting role in Richard Ayoade’s 2014 masterpiece “The Double.” What is particularly fascinating about Taylor’s appearance in “Anna,” however, is that it underscores how a film like this one could be better.

Anna
What's the line between sanity and insanity and who's equipped to determine the boundaries? That question seems to lie at the center of the upcoming thriller "Anna," and one man with some unique abilities will try to unravel a particular mystery with his unique gifts.

Tom Hiddleston, Ben Kingsley & Mark Strong Jaguar
They've played hard all season, endured injuries, survived the competition and now are waiting to be crowned the best: that's right, advertisers are rolling out their wares for the Super Bowl this Sunday. We presume there is something happening between all the commercials but we're not quite sure, but if you won't be on the couch for nine hours this weekend, the good news is that brands aren't waiting to show off their goods.

While jumping into the minds and memories of people to see what makes them tick isn't necessarily a new narrative idea, it's hard not to argue that Christopher Nolan's "Inception" took that concept to the kind of blockbuster heights that few could've imagined. Which makes it all the more difficulty for similarly styled movies to play in that territory—they will forever been trying to reach that bar. So as much as we like Mark Strong, "Mindscape" just doesn't stack up.

Filth James McAvoy Imogen Poots
Perhaps other than Cliff Martinez, there are few modern film composers who have crossed over into recognition from the regular music world, quite like Clint Mansell. Creating iconic scores for all of Darren Aronofsky's films, along with "Moon," "Last Night" (one of his more underrated efforts) and this year's "Stoker," his work is distinctive and other unlike anything else out there. And he's continuing to spread his wings in interesting directions.

Cranston, Strong, Superman And Batman rumors
With the dust settled on "Man Of Steel" (an awful lot of dust, given how much of Metropolis was totalled by film's end) it's fair to call it a successful reboot of the Superman franchise. Sure, it divided fans and critics, and didn't hit the giddy billion-dollar heights of the "Dark Knight" films (yet), but $650 million and counting isn't anything to be sniffed at for a franchise starter, and Warner Bros made clear that they're pushing forward at Comic-Con by bringing out Zack Snyder to announce that he'd be returning to direct the film's sequel, which would feature Henry Cavill's Kal-El face off against a new iteration of Batman.

The history of the British police movie is not a glorious one. Perhaps it's because (for the most part) U.K. coppers aren't allowed to carry firearms, which somewhat reduces the capacity for squib-happy action sequences. Or maybe it's the lack of glamorous locations for said shootouts, which can hardly compete with Manhattan or L.A. But after Edgar Wright imported the cop movie to rural Britain with "Hot Fuzz," we've seen a string of more straight-faced takes on the genre from the U.K., including the Jason Statham vehicle "Blitz," '70s remake "The Sweeney," and this spring's "Welcome To The Punch."
