As studios, distributors, and filmmakers in general continue to look for refreshing new ways to have their work seen by as wide an audience as possible -- whether it be on television, digital shorts, etc. -- one of those potentially promising outlets seems to be the web series format. While we can't say that a particularly successful title sticks out to us at the moment (besides maybe the hilarious "Burning Love" created by Ken Marino), producer Bryan Singer looks to be offering up something that will surely entice the resident sci-fi enthusiasts.

If the name Andrea Riseborough isn't one you're overly familiar with, you might want to do the appropriate homework. The rising British actress broke onto the scene in 2010 with "Made In Dagenham," "Never Let Me Go" and "Brighton Rock" but didn't exactly earn much recognition as all three films failed to make a big impression. Madonna's "W.E.," in which Riseborough plays infamous heiress Wallis Simpson, also came and went, but the actress is fighting back, starring in "Shadow Dancer" and "Welcome to the Punch" later this year and is currently shooting "Oblivion" opposite Tom Cruise. And now, most excitingly, the actress is lining up a teaming with two of the biggest names going around.

Man, what does Bryan Mills have to do to get some rest? After dispatching a bunch of Albanians (who, as one commenter noted, are organized enough to round up all the bodies scattered from probable crime scenes all over the place for a mass burial) all Bry wants to do is chill with his wife Famke Janssen, maybe get some action of the horizontal kind (if you know what we mean), and bust some cold hangs in Istanbul? What could possibly go wrong?

While he may not be quite as well known on this side of the pond, over in the U.K. Plan B aka Ben Drew, is something of a big deal. As a rapper he first made waves with the mixtape Paint It Blacker, before making his debut with Who Needs Action When You Got Words. But it was his transition to soul with The Defamation Of Strickland Banks that landed him on the charts in a big way, but music isn't his only endeavor. This year the enterprising 28 year-old made his feature film directorial debut with "iLL Manors," an uneven but admirable drama that look at the lives of troubled youth (our review). But always multi-tasking, he's got the soundtrack for the movie finally on the way.

With the Cannes Film Festival now come and gone, and most of the major/buzzworthy movies acquiring some kind of stateside distribution (including Leos Carax's difficult and genuinely WTF "Holy Motors"), what's the deal with Xavier Dolan's "Laurence Anyways"?

Tyler Perry and lots of other people didn't like "Prometheus." Some other people did. And between the two there have been a lot of conversation about Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and quasi "Alien" prequel about what it all means and where it could possible go from here. At any rate, when it arrives on Blu-ray, as expected, there will be plenty more to explore.

Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and the late Whitney Houston in a music heavy remake of the 1976 film of the same name, you can bet the filmmakers behind this are hoping the same audience that turned "Think Like A Man" into a sleeper hit show up for this next month. And it certainly won't hurt having a start studded soundtrack.

We are now fifteen days away from all 2 hours, 44 minutes of "The Dark Knight Rises" hitting theaters, but until then, thanks to the super secrecy of Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros., brief snatches of new footage are what we'll have to be content with until then. But really, in the era of marketing that demands the whole movie be shown to audiences via clips and trailers, it's refreshing, so we can't complain too much.
