One of the many reasons we’re super-pumped about this fall’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” the Disney animated feature set inside the world of videogames, is that preceding the feature is “Paperman,” a groundbreaking new short film by John Kahrs that ingeniously combines traditional hand-drawn animation with cutting-edge computer graphics. In short: it very well could be the future of traditional Disney animation. And thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have new details and images from the film (which just had a splashy screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival).

Controversial, upsetting, disturbing and memorable, there are few films this year that have gotten audiences talking like "Compliance" has. Based on a true story, the movie is an unwavering look at the power of authority to make people do unspeakable and humiliating things, and the film's bracing examination of those themes has been a major conversation starter. Earning buzz at Sundance, SXSW and BAMcinemaFEST, "Compliance" will hit theaters later this summer, and to get the ball rolling, we've got the exclusive poster for the film below.

Gareth Edwards’ 2010 film “Monsters” was the sort of sci-fi film you don’t see every day, and the critical reaction was appropriately positive. While many focused on the fact that Edwards was able to not break the bank creating fully realized worlds and creatures literally on his own computer, the film was also a pretty engaging story, featuring a standout performance by actor Scoot McNairy. Edwards has since moved on too MUCH bigger fare with the Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures-produced “Godzilla” reboot, but he’s also carved out time to get another smaller independent film that’s akin to a “robot 'Star Wars' ” titled “Forever.” However, interest in his debut “Monsters” still resides, with news first hitting around the middle of 2011 that a sequel was in the works, and an announcement arriving earlier this month that the newly coined "Monsters: The Dark Continent" would be heading our way soon.

Minor news out of Namibia today which may upset some slightly, but all in all, it shouldn't be much of a concern. George Miller's long-gestating "Mad Max: Fury Road," which had been in the works for a few years now, but was delayed for almost 24 months due to innapropriate weather conditions (Australian deserts that were too lush and green instead of barren), won't be shooting in 3D as originally planned.

What if you could create the perfect partner? What would happen if you accidentally did? That's the starting point for "Little Miss Sunshine" directors Jonathan Dayton and Varlie Faris' "Ruby Sparks," an utterly unique and charming look at the first blush of head-over-heels love, and the more tricky territory that comes when the honeymoon section of the relationship is over.

Seems like only days ago that we reported that Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“Bad Teacher,” “The Office,” “Year One”) were rewriting the script for director Paul Feig's buddy-cop comedy follow-up to "Bridesmaids" that will star Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy — and basically, that's because it was only days ago. Apparently, the first order of business was to give the film a title, which is now "The Heat."

It may seem like a while ago, but at the tail end of 2011, heat started to build up around a movie featuring the blockbuster pairing of star Angelina Joile and director Luc Besson. Universal Pictures snapped up 80% of the worldwide distribution rights to the movie and then...Jolie decided to make "Maleficent" next. But not to worry, this project is still very much on schedule and it looks like it will be going up next for both Jolie and Besson.

Bootlegging was a dirty, dangerous business and John Hillcoat's upcoming "Lawless" certainly doesn't shy away from the less glamorous aspects of the gig, and it certainly helps to tell the story when you've got an ace cast at your disposal.
