You may not be able to pronounce the name Andrey Zvyagintsev, but this spring you likely saw that flurry of consonants and vowels across Twitter or in the blogosphere. The director's epic "Leviathan" was the big talk of the Cannes Film Festival, and one many thought would take the Palme d'Or. Instead, it had to settle on the screenplay prize, but if the buzz is anything to go by, this is a movie you need to put high on your watch list.

The Grandmaster
Wong Kar-Wai's long awaited "The Grandmaster" dropped last year, with the martial arts epic receiving a modest response, a couple of Academy Award nominations and some awards mostly from overseas, before ultimately drifting from memory.

Gone Girl, Affleck
For a director known for perfectionism, David Fincher has been prolific lately, with his third film in four years, his adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel “Gone Girl,” hitting theaters later this year. As we wait to hear more great quotes from Tyler Perry, who appears in the film but had not previously heard of the director, why not scrutinize new photos (some via Empire) from the film for more clues about what happened to Amy Dunne?

And not only was it a hit in its home country, but it traveled abroad widely, earning a grand total of $444.7 million worldwide and scooping up awards, while The Weinstein Company snapped up the remake rights. And now writer/directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano are back with a followup.

The Humbling
On paper, "The Humbling" has a lot going for it. The film is based on the book by acclaimed author Philip Roth, is led by acting legend Al Pacino and rising star Greta Gerwig, and promises a provocative, sexually charged drama. But the question is whether or not director Barry Levinson will be able to pull it off, and the first clip is here to see if he's got the chops to deliver.

It’s no secret that the mercurial Dan Harmon, creator and showrunner of NBC’s “Community,” had a very public, very messy falling out with his network and certain cast members (cough Chevy Chase cough) in 2012. Underlying tensions between Harmon and the brass at Sony, which produces the show, drove him out after the third season, though he returned a year later. NBC bailed on “Community" after its fifth season back in May of this year, and fans eagerly awaited word on what was next in store for Harmon.
