So yeah, The Rolling Stones creaked into their 50th year in 2012, and the old dudes are still cranking it out. They're lining up some gigs, and also dropped the absurdly named GRRR!, another greatest hits disc that also features two new songs for you completists out there. And of course, a new video has arrived to try and prove they've still got it.

Like the waves that lap the beach by the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Brian De Palma is reassuringly steadfast. Over the years his Movie Brat brethren Scorsese and Spielberg have adapted their respective styles to align with evolving audience tastes and advancing technology, embracing 3D and motion capture with their most recent works. Meanwhile, Terrence Malick, the other New Hollywood veteran competing for this year’s Golden Lion, experiments in increasingly radical filmmaking syntax with each passing movie. But De Palma is dogged: he continues to explore themes and techniques that have obsessed him since his ‘70s/’80s salad days of “Carrie” and “Body Double."

While this writer offended some by daring to suggest the first trailer for Brian De Palma's "Passion" maybe wasn't so hot, the bottom line is, put Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace together in a movie and have them square off, and we'll be there. Directed by Brian De Palma? Doubly so. "Passion" is certainly one of the more intriguing offerings on the fest circuit this fall, and now a few more images have dropped to tempt you.

Depending on which side of the fence you're on, Brian De Palma hasn't made a good movie since the '90s, or he hasn't lost his touch. For everyone who dislikes a certain film, particularly recent pictures like "Femme Fatale" or "The Black Dahlia," there are just as many ready to find the merit and pleasures in the work. And judging by the first trailer for "Passion," that will probably be the case here.

The last major additions to this year's Toronto International Film Festival have been unveiled, and unsurprisingly, along with the new world premieres, there's several films from the Venice line-up, which kicks off the week before. Along with the already announced "The Master" and "To The Wonder," Torontoites will also get to see Brian DePalma's "Passion" and Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," both of which are set to bow on the Lido the week before.

So, will Brian De Palma's "Passion" be a long awaited return to form or another ambitious disappointment? Well, we'll still have to wait and see, but we'd be lying if we said that the images released thus far haven't been making us excited. And now you can add one more to the pile.

Noomi Rapace & Colin Farrell Thriller 'Dead Man Down' To Hit Theaters On April 5, 2013

Well, this will be an interesting little experiment. While both have been part of hit films, neither Noomi Rapace or Colin Farrell are necessarily marquee names. Sure, Rapace was part of the successful Swedish version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and is currently starring in "Prometheus," but that movie is sold on concept, not her name. As for Farrell, he's always been a wildcard, hard to predict, and he was likely more known last summer for his brief supporting role in "Horrible Bosses" than as the wicked villain of "Fright Night."

Well, "Prometheus" is in theaters. And if nothing else, it's been causing more furious debate -- in multiplex lobbies, in bars, online -- than most movies in recent memory. And The Playlist head office has been a warzone, with some loving the film, some loathing it, and some (like our review) falling somewhere in the middle. Name-calling and threats of physical violence have ensued.

Over thirty years after the 'space jockey' first appeared in "Alien," and after a couple of months of speculation and rumor, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," his return to sci-fi for the first time since "Blade Runner", and his continuation/prequel/spin-off/whatever to his 1979 space horror classic, finally hits theaters today. It's one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, and is already inspiring fierce debate (The Playlist team are split down the middle on the project, with wildly divided reactions from those who've seen it).

Watch: 4 New Clips From 'Prometheus' Celebrate Untrustworthy Androids & Ominous Possibilities

Androids. Anyone that saw Ridley Scott's "Alien" and "Blade Runner" knows that the director is fairly dubious about the apparent artificial intelligence that will be commonplace in the future. With Scott's "Prometheus" currently playing overseas and only a week away from release on this side of the Atlantic, it's clear that the director is still suspicious about man playing God, as evidenced by the beautiful but creepy viral video concerning Michael Fassbender's android character David. Now, Fox has released four new preview clips from "Prometheus," some of which highlight the possible duplicity of Fassbender's David, while the others point to a grim outcome for the characters, no matter whether the threat is human or android. And in case you're wondering: yes, these are pretty spoilery, so don't watch if you want to go into the movie fresh.
