Summer is around the corner which means that with the cold weather a distant memory, people are going to want to spending their time outside in the sun and warmth while it lasts. Which likely means less time sitting at home watching movies. So perhaps with that in mind, The Criterion Collection is keeping it easy on the new titles for July, but they do have one new offering, a box set and healthy handful of Blu-Ray reboots.

When we spoke to Steven Soderbergh back in January, he indicated that he was aiming for a March 2013 release for his upcoming "The Bitter Pill" and it looks like at the very least, he got the first frame date he was looking for.

Lukas Moodysson sure knows how to bring a bad time. Films like "Lilya-4-Ever," "A Hole In My Heart" and "Mammoth" viewers were left stung with unrelenting and at times, hard to watch drama that was unshakeable even after you left the theater. But for his next effort, he's trying some little breezier, a bit more musical and hell, a bit more punk rock.

Yes, lots of new posters to dazzle your eyeballs, so let's jump right in. There are few things surer in life than death and taxes, but at least this week, you can add "On The Road" appearing at the Cannes Film Festival. With the festival set to unveil their slate on Thursday, the new film from Walter Salles is one of surer bets out there. The latest -- and sunniest -- one sheet from the film has arrived, this time focusing on the lovely Kirsten Dunst who plays Carolyn Cassady in the film. She was married to Neal Cassady and was a friend of the Beats including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. And sorry KStew fans, we're still waiting on a poster for her....

By now, if you made the smart choice this weekend, you're thinking to yourself, "damn, 'Cabin In The Woods' was a nice fucking surprise!" An atypical horror film to say the least writer/producer Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard likely blew a lot of minds this weekend.

The summer movie season is only a few weeks away. Indeed, in some parts of the world, it's already underway. Due to the Euro 2012 football tournament, the rest of the world are getting several films, including "The Avengers" and "Prometheus" early, and many territories were unlucky enough to get "Battleship" in their multiplexes last week. But things kick off in the U.S. on May 4th with "The Avengers," with roughly one massive tentpole following every week after that.

Fly on the wall set photos have nearly replaced the studio publicity still entirely, and with two high-profile productions starring Emma Watson, Armie Hammer, and Johnny Depp lensing this past week, it’s no wonder a number of glimpses at their characters have promptly hit the web.

Pedro Almodovar thrilled audiences late last year with the twisted "The Skin I Live In" so we didn't expect to hear from him so soon but earlier this year, his brother and regular collaborator Agustin Almodovar revealed on Spanish radio that they were plotting a "witty comedy, with very spicy dialogues and with a lot of fun and transgression" set for production this year. Whether Pedro liked it or not, his brother's loose lips also noted that "Bad Education" and "Talk To Her" star Javier Camara was on board to star in the pic as well. All exciting stuff.

While "Black Swan" might have had more than it's fair share of tough love, physicality and mental and emotional pressure, Nina Sayers might not have anything on the young dancers featured in the upcoming documentary "First Position."

It's now fifteen years since Gary Oldman directed a film. Indeed, he's only directed a single picture: 1997's outstanding, brutal "Nil By Mouth," and for whatever reason, has yet to mount a follow-up, although he's recently begun talking about a possible project involving a sex addict. Has his recent success, and long-overdue Oscar nomination, with "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" helped to give the kind of heat needed to get a sophomore feature mounted? Or is he destined to be our era's Charles Laughton, a British actor who makes one outstanding feature, then never directs again?
