In the works for about a year now, you may have missed the announcement, Wim Wenders' next feature film is now in front of cameras in the lovely city of Montreal. In addition to the previously revealed James Franco, the picture also bolstered its cast with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marie-Josée Croze. Now another actress has joined the picture, and one that makes the project all the more enticing.

It's Wednesday, hump day, which means the weekend is now appearing on the horizon, but there's still a bit of a journey before the work week is done and you can put up your feet for a couple days. And given that we're in the middle of summer, it means that prime time TV is a wasteland and given the blockbuster options right now, there isn't much reason to head to the multiplex. But quietly arriving on VOD today is Brian De Palma's "Passion," and to nudge you along in ordering it up this evening the first four minutes of the movie have been placed online.

Romance isn't easy, but what if you had a chance to do-over that first date, have a second attempt at a first impression or even just redo that first time in the sack? That's the central premise of "About Time," the upcoming romantic comedy from the man who knows a few things about complicated love, Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings And A Funeral").

This week one of the most hotly anticipated movies is coming not to a theater near you, but to your favorite On Demand service (and the iTunes music store). "Passion" is modern master of suspense Brian De Palma's first movie since 2007's controversial Iraq War drama "Redacted" and marks a return to the kind of psychosexual thriller that defined his golden period (movies like "Body Double," "Dressed to Kill" and "Obsession"). It's certainly not a movie for everyone (debate rages around The Playlist water cooler about its perceived plusses and minuses), but if you're a DePalma die hard it's certainly worth the stream or download.

Cameron Crowe has been keeping details on his next film a little bit on the down low. He's not quite Noah Baumbach, but aside from the cast— Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone— we don't really know much else about the film. Granted it's expected to be reworking of the filmmaker's aborted "Deep Tiki," which he was once slated to make with Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon, but what exactly he's changed remains to be seen. But we do now know one more cast member who's coming aboard.

How would you like to see a movie about a quirky British man who travels through time by stepping into a seemingly small room? What if that movie also co-starred Bill Nighy? I know what you’re thinking, Dr. Who, right? Unless, of course, you read the title of this article, then you’re not thinking that at all. Regardless, this isn’t a movie about Time Lords; instead it’s a new romantic comedy from the director of “Love Actually” and “Pirate Radio.” Check out the first US trailer for it below.

Earlier this year, we saw Steven Soderbergh revitalize the aging erotic thriller genre with "Side Effects," a pretty nifty and pulpy take on the kinds of poitboilers we don't really get much of anymore. Or don't we? In just a couple of months you'll be able to undo the top few buttons of your shirt, metaphorically or literally, when Brian De Palma's "Passion" arrives, and a new trailer is here to take you into the film's sexy and murderous dance.

Brian De Palma’s back, and firmly in his wheelhouse of sexual power plays and slithery narratives, with the thriller “Passion.” And after doing some festival jaunts last year, it's headed to theaters and there's a whole bunch of new stuff to look at.

What if you could jump back through time to say the perfect line, make a better first impression or perform better in the sack? That's the ambitious central premise of "About Time," the latest from "Love Actually" writer/director Richard Curtis, that takes the traditional rom-com and adds a little does of time travel in for good measures. Does it work? Well, let's take a look at the first trailer...

Rachel McAdams has carved out an interesting year ahead, wandering around with some horses in Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" which arrives tomorrow, getting into some sexy intrigue with Noomi Rapace in Brian De Palma's B-movie sizzler "Passion," getting some time travel and romance in with Richard Curtis' "About Time" while Anton Corbijn's thriller "A Most Wanted Man" will hopefully land on the festival circuit. And now she wants to close off her 2013 calendar by working with another big-time filmmaking talent.
