Fans of Park Chan-wook probably remember that the master Korean filmmaker shot a short film entirely on an iPhone 4 a few years back (that is, two iPhones ago). The short, “Night Fishing” aka “Paramanjang,” was made with some help from his brother, Park Chan-kyong and was released theatrically in South Korea back in January of 2011, hitting the festival circuit shortly after. For those who haven’t had a chance to catch the film can rejoice as the short is available on YouTube in its entirety.

Chris O’Dowd is having a moment. He first turned heads in the British sitcom “The IT Crowd,” and since his turn as Kristen Wiig’s love interest in the breakout hit “Bridesmaids” he’s racked up roles in two more Judd Apatow projects: Lena Dunham’s HBO series “Girls” and in Apatow’s own directorial effort “This Is 40.” And it looks the comedy world isn’t enough for O’Dowd as he’s revealed that he has a role in a major blockbuster this year.

A couple of years ago, we put together a retrospective on the films of Nicolas Roeg, and what one could quickly glean is that his glory years were far behind. The filmmaker whose name graced iconic movies like "Performance," "Don't Look Now" and "The Man Who Feel To Earth" hasn't made a good film in a long, long time and his last effort, 2007's "Puffball" was a barely there release that quickly disappeared. But at 84 years old, it looks like Roeg is taking another shot.

We're all for high concept movies, particularly when it comes to animation which lends itself to fanciful stories, but this writer at least is still struggling to figure out "Turbo." In short: it's about a snail who gets super-powered with nitrous oxide, busts out of the snail racing circuit (huh?) to compete at the Indy 500 (wha?). Okay, but this better have more than slow motion jokes...oh wait...

J.J. Abrams only lets you see what you he wants you to see, and when it comes to his films before release, it isn't much. And so it's not surprising that these two latest photos for "Star Trek Into Darkness," coming in via some kind of app for the movie, aren't exactly Earth-shattering revelations.

So, how much did we like Tobias Lindholm's "A Hijacking"? Well, as you'll see in the the exclusive U.S. poster for the film below -- quite a bit.

So, remember about a year ago when it was announced that "James Bond 24" aka the followup to "Skyfall" would be released in 2014? While that still could possibly happen, it's looking increasingly like a longshot as the latest update from MGM suggests we might be waiting much longer for the next 007 outing.

While the plans for a sequel are something we're certainly wary of, there's no doubt that Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" continues to fascinate. Recently, studio notes on the film from displeased producers hit the web, providing yet another insight into the production, while a possible tie-in to "Prometheus" suggests the mythology may grown even further. But one of the most enduring elements of the sci-fi classic is Vangelis' beautifully synth-ed out score, and it's getting a fresh pressing for all you wax enthusiasts.

With Lynne Ramsay shockingly and mysteriously bailing on western "Jane Got A Gun" yesterday, producer Scott Steindorff of Scott Pictures promised a director would be found imminently. He wasn't kidding. Less than 24 hours later, the film has a brand new helmer to get the movie going, and likely keep any delays minimal.
