The Angriest Man In Brooklyn
There's ticking clock movies and then there's Robin Williams being given 90 minutes to live and running around Brooklyn like a maniac. Hilarious? Well, sit back because your afternoon just got a little bit brighter.

Currently retired from public life, whatever that means, Shia LaBeouf is either Hollywood's greatest enigma or best prankster. Or both. At any rate, after owning the Berlin Film Festival press conference for Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," it looked like Shia was just gonna keep on truckin', working, making weird and possibly plagiarized art, and generally continue to upend whatever notions of decorum are affixed to young actors. But it seems he is taking a step back for a moment.

Well, this might be disappointing to some. It was only one month ago when we heard that David O. Russell would be teaming up alongside “Erin Brockovich” screenwriter Susannah Grant for an ABC drama, tentatively titled “The Club.” Despite the fact that the show was already given a 13-episode order, it looks like David O. Russell will be dropping out of the project.

Low Down
Evincing a similar mustard brown aesthetic and destitute mood—spiritually, emotionally and psychologically—Sundance indie, “Low Down” is to 1970s jazz, what John Huston’s “Fat City” is to that era of boxing: a down and out look at talented three-time losers that can’t get past their addictions, demons and terribly self-destructive qualities. But unlike Huston’s Stacy Keach pugilist drama (admittedly uneven, but still fascinating), “Low Down” is interminably depressing and features an indolent pace that would embarrass any musician looking to engage.

It was only a matter of time before someone tried to fully exploit the social media age for the evils of the generic romantic comedy and "A Case Of You," a new Justin Long-led rom-com, does just that; abusing the Facebook platform to create the first FB stalker comedy. Somehow, everything creepy and vile in this Kat Coiro-directed comedy ("L!fe Happens") is meant to seem comically cute and not the restraining-order freaky that it clearly is. Like all of these meretricious and morally reprehensible culture-farts, it’s presented as harmless and adorable at heart, but as the central quintessentially dorky character becomes more and more fawning and subservient, the actors themselves seem to border on queasiness.

With his turn as a Marvel supervillain in “X-Men: Days of Futures Past” in the can, “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage has found a new project. The actor is set to star in an R-rated comedy about a man who tells people he’s a real leprechaun. In the vein of “Bad Santa,” the untitled comedy will be penned by Andrew Dodge, who wrote Jason Bateman’s less than stellar directorial debut “Bad Words.” Based on the premise, the Dinklage comedy looks to be a better bet.

The quirk alert for "A Case Of You" goes off pretty early once you realize the love interest in the film is named Birdie Hazel, while Peter Dinklage plays a flamboyant barista with an unpronounceable name that rhymes with Gerard. Laughing yet? Then this rom-com might be for you.

X-Men Days Of Future Past Peter Dinklage
You would think given how much continues to pour out of the "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" mill that the movie was coming out in a month and not next year, but especially given how limply "The Wolverine" performed at home, we suppose we can understand Fox putting all their muscle behind the flick. After all, it's the granddaddy of their superhero movies, the cash cow they hope will keep minting money and making fanboys happy, and they are literally putting as much as they can into the next effort (seriously, name an X-Men character who isn't in 'First Class'). And so today, comes a couple new looks at the movie.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Bolivar Trask
Well "The Wolverine" has come and gone and with poor domestic numbers making it one of the worst performing of any of the X-Men movies (opening lower than "X-Men Origins: The Wolverine") all eyes are already on the next X-adventure. No matter what you thought of the movie (we weighed in on the good and bad here), it's hard to argue that the most exciting portion of the movie was actually the mid-credits tease with (spoiler alert!) Magneto and Charles Xavier meeting Logan in an airport, with a Trask industries logo not so subtly presented. Yes, they're building bridges to next spring's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" and few more morsels have arrived today.

Let's say you're making a comic book sequel, and let's you already have this cast: Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore and James Marsden. Do you add even more actors or do you think, "Y'know, maybe I'm good right here." Well, Bryan Singer was recently faced with this dilemma and made a choice. Can you guess which way he went?
