Captain America: The Winter Soldier
In just a couple of weeks, Marvel will kick off their year of geekery with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." As always, fans are excited for the movie and of course, the now-standard post-credits tease. So what's coming this time around from the studio? Well, as is also now standard, some folks who have seen early screenings are spilling what you can expect if you stick around to enjoy squishy floors of your local multiplex.

Jon Favreau, Chef
Ahead of the inaugural screening of Jon Favreau's latest film "Chef,” the movie is being heralded as a glorious return to the filmmaker's independent roots. Favreau, after all, wrote "Swingers," one of the more influential indies of the nineties, and reteamed with his "Swingers" co-star Vince Vaughn for a madcap mobster comedy with 2001's "Made" (a film that he directed, too). Since then, he's been swayed by the Hollywood machine, turning out a number of big budget smashes (“Iron Man”) but these films were, to many degrees, tentpole-anonymous; possessing little evidence of the voice that made him such a sensation in the first place. And while the more down-to-earth "Chef" does offer some fascinating autobiographical dimensions, the film is also an overlong, unfunny, largely insufferable bore. This doesn't feel like a homecoming; it feels like a step backwards into a generic Culver City studio zip code.

Chef
In the next film from Jon Favreau, you won't see any Marvel superheroes, cowboys, aliens or elves from the North Pole lost in New York City. Instead, just a man with the modest ambition of trying to get a food truck off the ground.

Under The Skin
She might be kicking all sorts of ass as Black Widow in this spring's blockbuster "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," but Scarlett Johansson will be much deadlier (and sexier) in "Under The Skin." The sci-fi mindbender is headed to theatres soon, and after a series of tantalizing teasers, the first clip from the film has arrived.

Black Widow
“We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett [Johansson] about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ comes first.” Marvel chief Kevin Feige said in 2010 about a solo Black Widow movie, the spy character that in “Iron Man 2” and “The Avengers.” In 2011 he added, "There's no definitive plans, but we have started talking and talking with Scarlett Johansson about what a Widow movie could be.”

Under The Skin
While the final result of Jonathan Glazer's brilliant "Under The Skin" is a tightly controlled, sharply honed piece, the production was much more loose than you might think. "There were lots of pieces, lots of film that was shot, 270 hours of film I think," the director told us at TIFF last year. "Sometimes I had eight cameras running...there were fantastic scenes that I didn't get permission to use. So it was quite a high wire act in that sense, you would not know what you were going to get every day. You would take risks that meant that you might be shooting for three hours and end up with nothing."
