It has been a busy few weeks for Danny Boyle. His latest feature, “Trance,” is released in the U.K. today, and in addition to a Leicester Square premiere last week and a lot of media commitments to promote the film’s release, Boyle was at the Empire Awards on Sunday evening to receive an outstanding contribution award while further promoting his movie.

So is Lynn Shelton having her Joe Swanberg moment? The mumblecore directo recently pivoted toward the mainstream with "Drinking Buddies" starring Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick and more, and while Shelton last delivered "Your Sister's Sister" featuring Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt and "Touchy Feely" with DeWitt and Ellen Page, her latest lines up an Oscar winner, a rising young actress and more and what could definitely be a project that will help her reach her widest audience audience yet.

Toldja? When Magnolia Pictures picked up Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" last fall, we openly wondered if that meant that the filmmaker's latest effort was going to end up mostly being an option on your TV screen rather than at your local arthouse, and it worries us to say, that may be the case.

Do You Have An Idea For 'Prometheus 2'? A "Freaking Out" Fox Probably Wants To Hear It

If there is one (potenital) franchise that continues to be a muddle of confused ideas, it's "Prometheus." We'll spare you the blow-by-blow (again), but generally speaking, Jon Spaihts wrote a script that was a (more) direct prequel to "Alien" (including facehuggers) like had been initially planned, and then Damon Lindelof was brought it and it became the movie you saw last summer (you can read about some of the differences here). But for all the supposed mystery of "Prometheus," Ridley Scott wasted no opportunity to explain away everything and even toss in a loose tie to "Blade Runner" because why the fuck not. So needless to say, the waters have become a bit muddied, and Fox is reportedly none too pleased.

Matthew Vaughn doesn't tend to be the sort of director to get attached to a zillion projects. The director behind "Kick-Ass" and "X-Men: First Class" found his schedule wide open when he dropped out of helming "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" last fall, and while he was briefly rumored as a contender for "Star Wars: Episode 7" and signed up to produce Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four," his next gig is actually one that has been brewing for a long time now, and it will reunite him with an old pal.

Trance, James McAvoy
If one thing seems to be clear about Danny Boyle's "Trance," it's that it might mess up your mind as much as it does its lead character, an auction house worker who gets caught up in an art heist gone very wrong. "...a head-spinning, psychologically rich take on the crime flick," we said about the movie in our A-grade review and now another peek at the thrills Boyle is bringing has dropped.

While her sister was the one rumored for a part last fall (that eventually went to Rebecca Hall), the equally talented Kate Mara has found herself vaulted into one of the most intriguing movies on the 2014 horizon.

Oh snap, kinda forgot about this one. With Wong Kar-Wai's long awaited marital arts epic now having premiered and playing in international release, we're just patiently waiting a stateside release date for the movie from The Weinstein Company. So until that happens, we'll just have to be content with advertising from overseas.

This week finally sees the limited release opening of "The Place Beyond The Pines," Derek Cianfrance's follow-up to “Blue Valentine" starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Dane DeHaan and many more. A searing drama about family and legacy, the movie earned a rare A-grade review from us when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. We recently got the chance to sit down with Gosling (and most of the principal cast) of 'Pines' earlier this month and during our conversation with the "Drive" actor we also asked him about his upcoming directorial debut, his collaboration with Terrence Malick and more.

So remember last month when it seemed like the David O. Russell/Jennifer Lawrence collaborative relationship was going to carry over from "Silver Linings Playbook" and the currently filming Abscam movie to a third project, "The Ends Of The Earth"? You might want to put it back in your pants for the moment.
