There have been few contemporary true crime stories examined as deeply as the West Memphis Three... but then again, few contemporary true crime stories have been as compelling, frustrating, controversial and heartbreaking as this one. After four documentaries (including the Peter Jackson-produced "West Of Memphis" slated for release later this year) a feature film is now on the way, and the tough job of casting the teenage boys accused of murdering and disfiguring three young boys is starting.

We realize that this interview is a little old -- but we're just catching up to it -- and at any rate, it seems everyone wants to keep talking about "Prometheus," most of all Ridley Scott. Before we continue we should say there will be spoilers in case you haven't seen the film yet, so no whining if you read past this point and the movie is ruined for you.

While Canadian director Xavier Dolan caused some cinephiles to have an immediate opinion on his work, despite the fact he's had only one film released in the United States -- 2010's "Heartbeats" -- with his directorial debut finally getting a proper release stateside, dicussions on the merit of the young filmmaker will only continue.

We just premiered the official U.S. poster last week and now the official U.S. trailer has arrived for Julie Delpy's "2 Days In New York." A direct (though very unlikely) sequel to the rather hysterical "2 Days In Paris" (an awesome examination of neurosis and relationships), "2 Days In New York," picks up with Delpy's anxious and disordered Marion character now living in Manhattan. Having broken up with Adam Goldberg's character in the first film, she now lives with her boyfriend Mingus (Chris Rock) and has a child from her first relationship. It gets much worse when her family from Paris arrives.

While there was no doubt that Jean Dujardin was the charming story of the awards season last year, capped off by a Best Actor win at the Oscars, his Hollywood prospects seemed doubtful. His command of the English language is limited, but he proved he could deliver with some great comic timing with the right material, thanks to a pretty great Funny Or Die video. But he'll have his greatest test yet as he's nabbed his first stateside role with one of the most esteemed directors...well, ever.

If you went to see "Prometheus" in 3D over the past week, you might have received a little bit of a treat. With Oscar already in their eyes, 20th Century Fox has begun the long marketing road for Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi," placing a 3D sequence from the film in front of Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic (with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" also getting bonus scenes). But if you were out getting popcorn or didn't get the special scene, a very, very brief taste of some first footage has landed online.

A few unorthodox period pieces/biopics are taking form in Steven Soderbergh’s “Behind the Candelabra,” Randal Miller’s “CBGB” and "Jobs" with Ashton Kutcher. And all three are lining up some impressive ensemble casts, so let’s see who is taking over some coveted roles.

After a couple of darker marketing efforts, "(500) Days Of Summer" helmer Marc Webb's upcoming "The Amazing Spiderman" has now turned to an image synonymous with marketing for Sam Raimi's films: our favorite webslinger, played here by Andrew Garfield, high above a sunkissed New York City skyline. It might be nostalgia, or the superhero's iconography, but you know what? It works.
