Though already well established as a comic actor, writer and director thanks to his work on Brit TV in fare such as "The IT Crowd," "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace" and more, with his debut feature film "Submarine," Richard Ayoade proved himself to be an astute stylist as well. While lazy folks compared his assemblage of French New Wave tics, mixed visual formats and a careful eye for set decoration and costuming as a Wes Anderson riff, he proved he could stand well enough on his own. And it looks like for his next effort, "The Double," he will make a distinct 180 from what he did before.

Now, another big setpiece to the movie has been deconstructed.

As everyone gathers around the table this weekend to eat turkey until their stomachs can take no more, they will be giving thanks, and two actors who have a lot to be thankful for in 2012 are Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender. The former has "Silver Linings Playbook" opening this weekend and has had an eventful year with "The Place Beyond The Pines" premiering at TIFF, while he's been busy on film sets for Susanne Bier's "Serena" and "The Hangover Part III." As for Fassy, riding high on the acclaim for "Shame," he featured in this summer's "Prometheus," re-teamed with Ridley Scott for "The Counselor," re-teamed with Steve McQueen for "Twelve Years A Slave," worked with Terrence Malick on his Austin music movie and has much more coming as well. So let's take a look back in time to when they were both up-and-coming.

In Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," loose lips sink ships, and that's something veteran hitman Jackie Cogan, played by Brad Pitt, understands, though why no one else gets it baffles him. And as this new trailer for the film underlines, boasts can come to haunt you in the future.

If you're a fan of the severe minister of fear, Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke -- who seems to get repulsed by nearly anything -- then thus far you've been treated to just two of the same images of his latest movie "Amour" since its debut at Cannes in May of this year. And that's perhaps partly because the film isn't the most appealing concept of all time: "Amour" centers on a retired octeganarian couple living out the winter years of their lives in peaceful quietude, but things suddently change when the matriarch has a stroke and her health suddenly takes a horrible turn for the worse.

And now, we're going to take one step further back to see how Tom Hardy transformed himself in the first place.

Huh. The last time we heard about a sequel to Bong Joon-ho's cult fave "The Host," it was still in the works. Indeed, even IMDB seems to think the movie is still in development, but apparently not only has it shot, but the first attention grabbing clip has landed online.

After a string of films that seemed to challenge Michael Haneke in terms of unrelenting bleakness, it's then perhaps a slight shock to hear director Lukas Moodyson ("Lilya-4-Ever," "A Hole In My Heart") contemplating brighter pastures for his next film. However, earlier this year he claimed just that with a “feel good” adaptation of his wife Coco's graphic novel, "Never Goodnight," and now the project, along with two other similarly promising efforts, have found their next step toward production.
