This past May saw the news of Steven Soderbergh’s first directing gig since his self-imposed hiatus from the cinematic world, the ten-episode Cinemax series “The Knick.” With production beginning next month, Deadline is reporting that the Clive Owen-starring series has added four new castmembers: Andre Holland (“Miracle At St. Anna,” “42”), Juliet Rylance (“Sinister”), Eve Hewson (“This Must Be The Place,” “Blood Ties”) and Michael Angarano who last worked with Soderbergh in last year’s “Haywire.” The series is set in a New York City hospital at the dawn of the 20th century and starts shooting late September.

Earlier today there was the trailer for "The Purge," a movie that we didn't know was happening because it was so far off our radar. And then there's "The English Teacher," a movie this writer initially mistook for "Writers" aka "Stuck In Love," due to the (omnipresence?) of Greg Kinnear and Lily Collins. But just like that movie, it's another indie dramedy where good looking people can't seem to sort out their love life. And frankly, we expect much better from you, Julianne Moore.

What do we know about "The English Teacher"? Well, it's good a good cast for one, starring Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano, Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins and Nathan Lane. Directed by Craig Zisk -- a TV vet who's helmed episodes of "Parks and Recreation," "New Girl," "United States of Tara," "The Office," "Nip/Tuck" and more - the picture centers on a English teacher's life that is disrupted when a former student returns to her small town after failing as a playwright in New York.

Review: 'The Brass Teapot' Is More Modest Trinket Than Rare Find

Ramma Mosley's “The Brass Teapot," based on a screenplay by Tim Macy, who wrote the short story and the 2007 short film that served as a jumping-off point for this feature, tries hard to be a moral fable, a reflection of today's challenging economic tides and the college graduates weathering them with limited success. With the help of a talented cast, “The Brass Teapot” is able to coast on charm for the first hour, but then the fairytale idea that powers the film runs out of juice, and the last forty-five minutes hurtle toward a wrap-up that feels both awkward and overwrought, needlessly portentous and arriving much too late. Leads Michael Angarano and especially firecracker Juno Temple are the reason to keep watching, but even they cannot breathe life into a compelling concept stretched too thin.

While a big chunk of the movie world is turning its eye towards Park City, for the rest of the industry it's still business as usual. Starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano, "The Brass Teapot," was acquired by Magnolia Pictures last fall after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. The picture is making its theatrical release this spring and we're debuting the official poster. Directed by Ramaa Mosley (the 2008 short, "Exquisite Corpse"), Temple and Angarano star as a young, poor, newly married couple who find a magic teapot that grants them cash for pain.

We'll try to dance around spoilers but the finale of the second season of "Boardwalk Empire" was shocking not only in terms of storyline but also with the fact they tore out the heart of the show, or at least what/who we thought was being developed as such. We're fascinated to see where the show goes from here, but at the very least, it looks like they'll be gaining one great character actor.

Traditionally, January is something of a wasteland for the movies; as the last of the awards season pictures roll out, studios tend to use it to dump product that they know won't set the world alight critically or commercially. This year is, for the most part, no exception: dicey prospects like found footage horror "The Devil Inside," long-delayed Katherine Heigl vehicle "One For The Money," unnecessary vampire fourquel "Underworld: Awakening" and a film starring Dolly Parton are among what January has to offer. But there's at least one release coming in the first month of the year that promises something far more potent; "Haywire."
