While making a name with their indie films, Jay and Mark Duplass have slowly been dipping their toes in studio waters. "Cyrus" was produced and released through studio shingle Fox Searchlight, and this spring's (unfairly and unjustly slept on) "Jeff, Who Lives At Home" hit theaters via Paramount Vantage. But now, they're going the whole studio hog, not only signing up with a major, but also being tasked with a remake. The brothers have truly arrived.

Yes, summer is a great time to get away to the multiplex to see the latest in Hollywood spectacle. But if you're not feeling like dealing with the crowds, sticky floors, audiences or even the heat on the way to and from the theater, why not kick back at home and catch up on some classic cinema you might have missed? Kino Classics can certainly fill that void, as later this month they'll be releasing the Lina Wertmüller Collection boxset featuring "The Seduction of Mimi" (1972), "Love & Anarchy" (1973) and "All Screwed Up" (1974) on DVD and Blu-ray.

Steve McQueen has quite an abundance of talent at his disposal for "Twelve Years A Slave" but now has more two more additions in TV staple Alfre Woodard and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o. Woodard will play a former slave who has risen through the caste system while Nyong'o plays the object of both affection and cruelty of Master Epps, to be played by Michael Fassbender. The film, of course, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, a free black man who is tricked into slavery and faces a grueling life under several owners. Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano, Sarah Paulson, Garrett Dillahunt, Ruth Negga and Adepero Oduye all co-star in the John Ridley co-scripted tale. Most anticipated for 2013? It's up there, no doubt. [THR]

Now this is a strange, strange story. You may remember Matteo Garrone’s 2009 film “Gomorrah.” The title is a play on words which crosses the Biblical city of Gomorrah and the name of the Neopolitan mafia ‘Camorra’, and was a damning indictment of the activities of the Camorra and the often unexpected areas their illegal activities have stretched to and influenced. On the surface it’s a powerful and brave film which dares to take on the Camorra – Roberto Saviano, whose non-fiction book the film was based on, had already been forced to flee into police protection.

Paramount has had a rough few weeks, with Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator” underperforming and their now tentpole-less summer after deciding to push back “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” by nine months. Fortunately for them, they’re still very much in the J.J. Abrams business.

There are a handful of things we can expect from every 007 movie: a new credit sequence song, a bevy of beautiful women, a worldly adventure in expensive-looking locales and heavy marketing tie-ins. The Heineken promotion for "Skyfall" has already drawn some light and somewhat misguided controversy, but of course it doesn't end there.
