Nope, it's not July. Given the amount of "The Dark Knight Rises" bits and pieces that have landed in the last week or so, you might think the movie was heading to theaters. But it's on its way to stores, and to help get the word out, a plethora of material has made its way online, including: three unreleased posters, a behind-the-scenes set building montage, 45 behind-the-scenes pics from the Bane vs. Batman showdown; a featurette about Tom Hardy's transformation into Bane as well as a look at the football field explosion. And yes, there's more.

The other day we got to speak to Andrew Dominik, whose genuinely amazing new crime film “Killing Them Softly” opens next week. One thing we wanted to make sure of was, after the seemingly epic gulf of time between his brilliant but criminally under-seen “The Assassination of Jesse James and the Coward Robert Ford” and “Killing Them Softly,” that there was at least something in the works. It turns out that the movie he was originally going to do before “Killing Them Softly” is still very much a go. "I'm going to do this movie called 'Blonde,' which is about Marilyn Monroe," Dominik said.

There are few filmmakers -- or people -- as dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate about cinema and its history as Martin Scorsese. A virtual walking encyclopedia about any corner of film lore you can think of, he remains fascinated and excited by movies and filmmakers, but in particular is concerned with making sure the early days of the art form aren't lost to the dusts of time. Through The Film Foundation and the World Cinema Foundation, he has worked tirelessly to preserve and restore films for future generations.

Hey wait, Susan Boyle is still a thing? You might remember a few years ago the singer took the world by storm on "Britain's Got Talent," belting out "I Dreamed A Dream" from "Les Miserables," and bringing down the house, earning pretty much overnight success. She has since gone on to sell millions of records, pack venues for her concerts and has had a stage musical mounted about her life. And now her story is headed to the big screen.

Who would have thought at the beginning of the '70s that the guy who directed "Duel" would emerge ten years later with two the biggest films of the decade under his belt, with "Jaws" and "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind." But looking back, it's also interesting to consider what could have been. While Spielberg no longer has to chase jobs and has scripts coming to him, back then, he was still a filmmaker on the rise looking to make a name for himself. You might recall the budding filmmaker sent a script to the fake movie company the CIA set up for the operation outlined in Ben Affleck's "Argo," and had thinks gone differently, Spielberg would have taken on one biggest franchises of all time.

This weekend sees Jacques Audiard's fantastic "Rust And Bone" open in limited release, and we've already been predicting big things for one of the film's leads, Matthias Schoenaerts. In our review we wrote that the "Bullhead" star "may find his breakthrough here, with comparisons to Tom Hardy to come....he's a similarly commanding physical presence, but he's the rare breed with acting chops to spare." And indeed, just like Hardy, it seems a number of doors are opening up.

While it doesn't have a U.S. release date just yet, the Coen Brothers penned, Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth starring comedy "Gambit" is already kicking up its heels overseas. A remake of the 1966 Michael Caine/Shirley MacLaine film, while on paper it sounds promising, the end result is a bit more disappointing (read our review here), but judge for yourself with four clips from the movie below.
