“Love Is All You Need,” the light rom-com from Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”), comes out late in the spring and Sony Picture Classics has just released a new, domestic theatrical trailer online for all of us to see. Bier had developed quite the reputation over the years for sobering dramas such as “Open Hearts” and “After the Wedding,” but here she has taken a much lighter detour, giving us a beautiful look of Southern Italy along the way.

VIFF Review: Overstuffed 'Love Is All You Need' An Unsatisfying, Predictable Rom-Com From Susanne Bier

What’s up with those crazy Danish filmmakers and their compulsion to pile it on? The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”) is like watching a long game of Jenga. As every sub plot, reveal and character… err, caricature that is, gets stacked on top of each other, the more inevitable it is that the whole thing will come tumbling down. And while “Love is All You Need” is by no means a disaster, it simply can’t support all that weight.

Tolkien Week may be over, but another cinematic anniversary is just around the corner. On October 5th, fans will celebrate James Bond Day, the official 50th anniversary of the franchise, with the date marking the world premiere of "Dr. No" in London in 1962. 007 enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to including the traveling exhibit "Designing 007 – Fifty Years of Bond Style" (it heads to Toronto at the end of October), but moreover a comprehensive documentary about the series to date.

Where is Rosamund Pike finding the time? Fresh off of “Jack Reacher,” the actress is busy filming a significant role in Edgar Wright’s final instalment in the jokingly monikered ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy, “The World’s End.” Once she’s wrapped on that she’ll be reuniting with Simon Pegg on the set of “Hector and the Search for Happiness,” and she’s also attached to Stephen Brown’s “The Sea.” But not content with that busy schedule (and likely happy to capitalise on a sudden resurgence in popularity), Pike has added another project in the form of Pascal Chaumeil’s English-language debut “A Long Way Down.”

Danish director Susanne Bier, who was behind the much acclaimed, but decidedly tough likes of "Brothers," "After the Wedding" and Hollywood debut "Things We Lost In the Fire," is not exactly the obvious choice for a romantic comedy. Particularly given that she just won the Foreign Language Oscar a couple of years back for "In a Better World." And yet Bier began her career with rom-coms like 'The One and Only" and "Once In a Lifetime," so her new film, "Love Is All You Need," perhaps shouldn't come as such a shock.

The Olympics are here, and aside from the expensive, overblown spectacle, there are sports happening and advertising too. Lots of it. And some of it, with some directors you might have heard of.

Generally known for her tough, wrenching dramas, it looks like Susanne Bier has taken a page out of the Woody Allen playbook (though without the name brand, ensemble cast) for her upcoming effort "Love Is All You Need." Featuring an exotic location, a potpourri of languages, and a mix of romance and drama, the film looks like it's poised to be a breezy little number.

After a few of years since the last major effort (the ill-fated "Nine"), the live-action movie musical is back again, with two starry efforts due this year about as far away from each other as you can get. This Christmas will see the terribly-serious looking "Les Miserables" hit theaters, with a star-studded cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway. But first is "Rock Of Ages," which arrives in theaters tomorrow, with another A-list ensemble including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Amid lots of “Fast & Furious 6” casting and speculation – Luke Evans? Really? – it’s nice to be able to report on some definitive (and high-profile) casting on a couple of upcoming movies. Pierce Brosnan and Elijah Wood have each lined up a new project, and we can tell you a little bit about those roles.

Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration). While watching "I Don't Know How She Does It," which at a swift 89 minutes still feels longer than the "Three Colors" trilogy combined, you'll be tempted to make a similar mental inventory of things that you could (and should),instead of watching this wretched claptrap, which we're fairly certain has single-handedly set the feminist cause back a good 35-40 years.
