So here's a little anecdote for you. This writer has seen the latest "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer in the theaters a few times now, and unlike the usual chattering that accompanies most movie spots, the audience has been mostly reverentially silent. Has anyone else experienced this? It's eerie and kind of cool. Either way, it's pretty clear that "The Dark Knight Rises" will be aiming to smash the $1 billion worldwide box office of its predecessor "The Dark Knight," but can Christopher Nolan's film achieve that feat?

After all the empty promises over the years, we can hardly believe it either: a sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's "Sin City" is set to begin production this spring with many of the original cast expected to return. To whet appetites, we now have a promo poster for the film, titled "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," which plays it generic but bares enough of the neo-noir hallmarks of its predecessor to entice.

You may not have noticed, but the Cannes Film Festival begins this week, and it won’t be long before we start hearing how the latest cinematic offerings of a whole host of prolific directors stack up. One of said directors with a new film at the festival is everyone’s favorite German auteur, Michael Haneke, who returns to Cannes for the first time since 2009 when “The White Ribbon” (perhaps his finest piece of work) took home the Palme d’Or.

What's it like to have your memory scrubbed? Well, if the marketing team behind "Total Recall" do their job right, then you will have forgotten about the 1990 film directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. And they've pumped out a few more images to help get that job done.

After pushing audiences to the brink last year with "Kill List," director Ben Wheatley has returned with something he promises is "lighter" -- though, of course, that could mean anything. And while we're still yet to see what will unfold in "Sightseers" -- the details of which have been kept closely guarded -- this first lengthy clip hints that it will be another dread-filled outing, though not without some laughs to leaven the mood.

With a release date slated last week, the wheels are now firmly in motion on the Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake starring Chloe Moretz. With the lead actress now locked in, the task is now on hand to find someone to play the poor girl's deranged mother, and a name that has already been bandied about seems to be taking a more firm shape.

When discussing the scrappy and hirsute "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" generation of 1970s filmmakers, the narrative arc of William Friedkin is a fun one to tell, and is often the stuff of legend. While he doesn't rank up there among some of the peers of that era like Martin Scorsese, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, he was the first of them to deliver what many call the first true blockbuster before "Jaws" and "Star Wars" with 1973's "The Exorcist." Arriving just two years after his critical hit "The French Connection" (which earned him an Academy Award for Best Director; 4 wins and 8 nominations total), "The Exorcist" became one of the highest-earning movies of all time during its era, grossing over $441 million worldwide (which is still a great figure by today's standards).

Yep, it's one of those projects. You know, the kind of that spend years in development with a variety of filmmakers (in this case Robert Schewentke and Marcus Nispel) coming and going, but with no actual movement happening. Such is the case of "The Last Voyage Of Demeter" that most recently had David Slade set to direct with Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley in the lead roles. Not bad right? But even as far back as a year ago, Rapace was casting doubt on whether or not she would be in it and word pretty much went quiet. Alas, it's back to the drawing board.
