With the film now set to screen for critics this weekend, it looks like The Weintsein Company are now ready to go full throttle to the finish line as they gear up Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." The soundtrack details just dropped a moment ago, and right on its heels is a brand new trailer.

While it looks like Frank Ocean didn't make the cut, the full tracklisting for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Django Unchained" once again reveals a director who isn't afraid to liberally borrow from his influences. With music from "Two Mules For Sister Sara," Klaus Kinski's "My Name Is King," Sergio Corbucci's original "Django," early '80s Gene Hackman/Nick Nolte flick "Under Fire" and even a reprise of a song we heard before "Kill Bill Vol. 1," it isn't to say there aren't any surprises.

From a shot-by-shot remake of "Psycho," to the pilot of the recently canceled "Boss," to low budget wonders like "Elephant," to Oscar success stories like "Good Will Hunting" and "Milk," the career of Gus Van Sant has been anything but safe and predictable. And just when we thought we had the director all figured out, he's gone ahead and thrown another curveball.

Marvel sure does like their British and Aussie actors. With "Guardians Of The Galaxy" now less than two years from release, the studio is starting to get the cast in place for what is easily the most ambitious project on their slate (it has an alien tree creature and a pistol-wielding, talking raccoon, guys), and a ridiculously long laundry list of actors have been revealed as possibilities to star.

Yes, it's pretty much old news considering this is what director Christopher Nolan has been saying about "The Dark Knight Rises" since day one. But, considering the recent rumors about Joseph Gordon-Levitt (which have been denied by his reps) playing Batman in "Justice League," it's worth reminding folks how Nolan views the final entry in his trilogy as well as the possibilities of continuing the story.

Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Casey Affleck. Those three names tied to one movie should be enough reason alone for you to go see it, but in a "Bonnie & Clyde"-esque, '70s set drama? Yeah, we're definitely in.

It was just over a year ago when word arrived that Shane Carruth was finally going to be starting work on his sophomore directorial effort "Upstream Color." Of course, not much was known about the project and word pretty much dried up from that point on, but it looks like the director has been working on the sly. The Sundance Film Festival unveiled the first part of their slate today, and among the pleasant surprises is the news that Carruth's film is finished and will be premiering in Park City.

There is no doubt that one of the biggest films of the year will be Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables." Already riding high on tremendous advance buzz, and with multiple Oscar nominations all but assured, it looks like audiences overseas are going to have an extra option when it comes to how they want to experience the film.

It looks like we'll have to keep waiting for the reunion between "Atonement" and "Starter For 10" stars Benedict Cumberbatch and James McAvoy. While it was just a few weeks ago that it was reported the pair would team for the Bill Condon-directed WikiLeaks movie, it looks like McAvoy has moved on.

If this sounds vaguely familiar, well, it's because this remake has been brewing for a while. Way back in 2009, Charlize Theron was already putting together a remake of Park Chan-wook's excellent "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," a film that was part of a loose trilogy that started with "Sympathy For Mr.Vengeance" and continued by "Oldboy," which is currently getting the Hollywood treatment by Spike Lee. Danny Boyle was rumored to direct but nothing was formal, but it now seems she's found the talent to help put it together.
