For the most part, Adam Shankman has been known for big screen spectacle, bringing to multiplexes the likes of "Bedtime Stories," "Hairspray" and this summer's '80s musical "Rock Of Ages." But the helmer is looking to shift gears a bit as earlier this year he signed on to direct an adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's best selling novel "This Is Where I Leave You." Never one lacking for an all star cast, Shankman has gathered up yet another strong group of talent to help him tell the tale.

While the debate will continue to swirl about how 5' 7" Tom Cruise will portray the much taller, bulkier Jack Reacher as described in the books by Lee Child remains to be seen, from day one Paramount has viewed "One Shot" as the start of a potential series of films. And now with a swift title change, it makes a bit easier.

So what exactly is Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" going to be? With a star-driven and somewhat random cast including James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and more, it seems like the wildly singular director is aiming for the mainstream. But then again, one can never discount Korine's prankster spirit, so who knows if this is just a bigger budget "Trash Humpers." Either way, everyone involved has been more than eager to show off what they've been up to, with a seemingly endless supply of stills and set pics making their way online. And the movie even had a ginormous billboard up at Cannes, the kind usually reserved for blockbusters. We're still not sure what to expect, but until we find out, here are more cheescake pics of the cast.

Having just made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, David Cronenberg's striking and claustrophobic "Cosmopolis" is riding a wave of buzz. While reviews of the provocative picture have been mixed, champions of the film -- including our own A-grade review from the Croisette -- describe the effort as one of his best in recent years. And part of the buzz is likely largely in part thanks to Cronenberg's unlikely star Robert Pattinson. Known globally as Edward Cullen from the "Twilight" series, with that franchise coming to a close this year, Pattinson is looking ahead and eager to take on new acting challenges. And by most accounts, he passed with flying colors in the edgy "Cosmopolis," a performance should open the eyes of many to the variety of talents he may not get to exercise in the vampire series.

Shakespeare has been no stranger to big screen adaptations, but few has been as forward-thinking or creative as Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus." Not only did the actor/director choose a lesser-known play to tackle, but he gave it a contemporary setting and rounded up a strong cast -- Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain, James Nesbitt -- to tell the tale. With a script by John Logan, "Coriolanus" was certainly one of the more unique pictures to hit the big screen last year, and in case you didn't catch it then, we've got 3 copies on the film on DVD for some lucky readers.

“The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman” is a film that this writer reported on last week and incurred the wrath of many a commenter by expressing reservations over the casting of Rupert Grint. Well, you won’t find any reservations about this latest bit of casting (or about Grint again – hell hath no fury like a 'Potter' fan scorned) as Aubrey Plaza confirmed to Latino Review that she's joined the cast, alongside Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Til Schweiger, Mads Mikkelsen and Melissa Leo. U.K. readers may also be interested to read that “The Inbetweeners” star James Buckley is also on board.

At the moment -- though we expect at least one or two of these movies will blink and move in the next few months -- Christmas Day is gonna be a pileup of high profile movies with "Playing The Field," "The Guilt Trip," "Django Unchained" and "The Great Gatsby" all set to open. And the latter two films are already pulling out the big guns. 'Django' screened footage in Cannes and has a teaser trailer dropping at any day now, while 'Gatsby' already got a full trailer out of the gate. And if you can't get enough 'Gatsby,' well, here's a bit more for you.

Director Lynne Ramsay made a long-anticipated return to filmmaking, after a nine-year absence, in 2011 with "We Need To Talk About Kevin," and it was worth the wait. A tough but equally rewarding film, the picture starring Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller tells the tale of a mother's fractured relationship with her son, which grows more distant and hostile before he commits an act of unspeakable horror. The film premiered in-competition at the Cannes Film Festival last year, and went on to earn accolades from critics and a plethora of awards and nominations. And we've got some pretty great prizes for fans of the film.

Wait, what? What do you mean there have been endless trailers, TV spots and featurettes over the last few months? I mean, it's not like they've released almost every frame of the film before it hits theaters or anything, surely? Oh.
