Mrs. Doubtfire
Wait, didn’t Mrs. Doubtfire die in a fire? True story: I’ve never seen “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the 1993 comedy about a divorced actor so psychotic and unhinged he disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. And I’d rather take a chainsaw to my scrotum than ever see it, frankly (the painful bits I’ve seen on TV over the years were enough, thank you very much).

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.

The Face Of Love
While a new crop of films vie for distribution deals over the next ten days at the Sundance Film Festival, last year’s class of festival movies is still rolling out in front of general audiences. Case in point, the Annette Bening-starring “The Face Of Love” will finally be hitting select theaters and VOD in this spring through IFC and the indie studio has released the film’s first trailer.

TIFF 2013 Trailers
Based off of the steady stream of crowd-pleasers, critical darlings, and uneven oddities that hit Toronto this past week, the Toronto International Film Festival could already be considered a runaway success. But an entire week more of cinematic gifts await, and we've got clips and trailers for a slew of them, including the latest efforts from Lukas Moodysson, Kurt Russell, and Ben Mendelsohn. While the buzz might have slightly died down about the festival, there's a whole lot still left to go!

Robin Williams Heads Down Another Dramatic 'Boulevard'

What’s Robin Williams been up to recently? Well, on the big screen, the answer is not an awful lot. Last year he popped up briefly in episodes of “Wilfred” and “Louie,” and the year before he voiced a couple of characters in “Happy Feet Two.” However, you have to go back to 2009’s trio of the really rather good “World’s Greatest Dad,” the distinctly average “Night at the Museum 2” and the all kinds of awful “Old Dogs” to get anything significant from Williams on the big screen. That all looks set to change though with “The Big Wedding” and “The Butler” (in which he’ll play a priest and a president, respectively) both looking set for release this year, with “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” already in the can, and now Williams has another project lined up.

Hollywood is a weird place. While it can be known for being forward-thinking or progressive in its politics, willing to adapt to social changes and put new stories on the big screen, like the Oscar-nominated "The Kids Are All Right" that offers a refreshing and modern look at families, on the other hand, it can be strangely conservative. And so, we'll forgive you if when watching the trailer for "The Big Wedding" you might think it was exhumed from a previous decade (or two).

Robin Williams To Play Dwight Eisenhower In Lee Daniels' 'The Butler'

It seems that Robin Williams has learned a lesson in recent years, perhaps most particularly from the critical drubbing that the 2009 comedy(?) "Old Dogs" received, and has retreated to doing more ensemble work, notably providing a voice for the "Happy Feet" movies and playing Teddy Roosevelt in the "Night at the Museum" movies. It was only ten years ago that Williams was working with director Christopher Nolan on "Insomnia," only five years removed from his Oscar-winning performance in "Good Will Hunting." For all the tepid comedies like "RV," Williams like to remind audiences that he is, in fact, a pretty damn good actor, and his resume is sprinkled with indelible performances in films like "Dead Poets Society" and "The World According to Garp," to name a few.

The end is nigh! The currently shooting "The Bitter Pill," starring Channing Tatum and Rooney Mara, marks Steven Soderbergh's penultimate feature film, after which the curtains will close with his long-gestating Liberace biopic "Behind The Candelabra," which films this summer. The latter has now began filling out its cast, with Dan Aykroyd jumping on board to play the famed entertainer's long-term manager, Seymour Heller.

Even though he scripted "American Beauty" for Sam Mendes before his two successful television shows "Six Feet Under" and "True Blood," Alan Ball has only returned to the silver screen for little-seen directorial debut "Towelhead." Last year, though, brought news that Emmy and Oscar winning writer-director (hello EGOT?) was lining up a return with a dark comedy for Paramount.

Given the film was first announced over a year ago, it's not much of a surprise that there has been a casting change on "The Look Of Love." But perhaps more surprising is that most everyone else has stayed on board.
