Making your first feature film is no easy task. Everything from the script to casting requires careful attention to detail, and meanwhile, you're looking to prove to yourself and others that you have what it takes to get the job done. However, if your name is Alex Garland, things are made slightly easier. The screenwriter behind "28 Days Later...," "Never Let Me Go" and "Dredd" has a CV that speaks for itself, and it's no surprise that he's getting some nice talent for his debut directorial effort "Ex Machina."

While she hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2012's movie-you-already-forgot-about "Safe House," Vera Farmiga has a helluva 2013 lined up. This spring sees her raise a pyscho in the A&E series "Bates Motel," while this summer she'll continue to chill in the horror flick "The Conjuring." And just as those two projects head to screens big and small, the actress is eager to get back on set.

Every year, amongst the countless films that see a theatrical release -- no matter how small -- there are a select few that are destined for that no man’s land known as direct-to-video. The latest entry in this grand tradition is “Revenge For Jolly!,” a film which our man in Tribeca was not a fan of, calling it “the most excruciating 80+ minutes you’ll spend in a theater this year.” And now, a new trailer for the film has dropped online, so see how bad it is for yourself below.

There is nothing better to have in Hollywood than options, and Aussie helmer and Blue Tongue Films collective member Kieran Darcy-Smith is learning that lesson. The actor arrived at Sundance earlier this year with his debut feature, "Wish You Were Here," and while not exactly a breakout hit, it seems to have provided more than enough momentum to get some projects set up. He's already slated to helm a segment of the omnibus "Sydney Unplugged," this fall he lined up the thriller "By Way Of Helena" and he's got an untitled romance kicking around as well. Now comes another project and should all the chips fall into place, it will be his next.

This Christmas will mark whole two years since the last Coen Brothers' film, an absence that's somewhat foreign to us consdering the pair had a prolific run of consecutive films between 2007 and 2010 with "No Country For Old Men," "Burn After Reading," "A Serious Man" and "True Grit." While we've been working under the impression the brothers' latest effort, "Inside Llewyn Davis," would be unveiled next year at the earliest, star Oscar Isaac has thrown a spanner in the works as he recently "hinted that we may indeed see the Coens' movie by year's end although they've yet to announce who may be distributing it domestically."
