Last year’s it-girl, Bérénice Bejo of “The Artist” fame, has been out of the spotlight for some time, but now returns with her first starring role since her Oscar-nominated success, in “Au Bonheurs Des Ogres” or “The Scapegoat,” an adaptation of the classic French novel by Daniel Pennac. A new trailer has just arrived advertising the film’s April release in France, but without even an English-subtitled teaser to go on, there’s no telling whether the film will make it to U.S. shores.

'Finding Nemo 2' Is Still Happening, But At Least Albert Brooks Will Return

The days of Pixar being the lone wolf animation studio focused on original ideas over franchises is long gone. With "Toy Story" staying alive in a series of shorts, a pretty disappointing looking "Monsters University" coming this spring and yes, a "Finding Nemo" sequel, the animation house is just as concerned about licensing as Walt Disney, DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox are. A brand is a brand, and there are toys to sell. And so, "Finding Nemo 2" is officially a thing but at least we'll have Albert Brooks back.

If you’ve ever heard high-culture appreciating television viewers lament the fact that Bravo used to air operas while now it airs Andy Cohen, those same folks might be equally disheartened to see this one act play directed by Robert Altman in 1987 for ABC, the network that is now home to 17 seasons of “The Bachelor.” Altman directed a two-part special entitled “Basements,” with both halves being adaptations of English playwright Harold Pinter’s one act plays “The Room” and “The Dumb Waiter.” “The Room” surfaced online recently in the form of a VHS rip, and it’s a thoroughly bizarre 48 minute experience that fans of the celebrated Altman (“Gosford Park,” “The Player,” “M*A*S*H*”) or Pinter (“The Birthday Party,” “The Homecoming,” “Betrayal”) might want to check out.

Abdellatif Kechiche has been working on his craft meticulously since his 2000 debut “La faulte a Voltaire,” often garnering great acclaim in the process. Perhaps the most celebrated and heralded film in his oeuvre thus far has been “The Secret of the Grain,” which earned him the top prize at the Cesar Awards in France and a special jury prize in Venice back in 2007 (and a picture that when it was released stateside, we called One Of The Best Films Of 2008). Now, he’s back with his latest, the upcoming lesbian romantic drama “Blue Is the Warmest Colour,” and a teaser poster and photo have been unveiled for the film.

'Hansel & Gretel' Director Tommy Wirkola Returns To Norway To Make That 'Dead Snow' Sequel You Wanted

Tommy Wirkola’s debut Hollywood feature had a less than conventional route to theaters. Originally due in March 2012, Paramount failed to ever really get the marketing campaign for "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" going, which meant no one was all that surprised when in was pushed back to the January dumping ground of 2013. The studio then toyed with the idea of releasing a PG-13 cut, but eventually settled for an R-rating, and the picture beat out “Parker” to a spot at the top of the box office on an admittedly slow weekend. 'Hansel & Gretel' has actually already gone on to gross upwards of $125 million worldwide despite being pretty awful (or “unrelentingly stupid” as we said in our review) and having a few major territories still left to hit, so it’s probably the quality of the thing rather than its performance that has Wirkola retreating back to his native Norway.

The journey for "The Sessions" is nearly over, but it has been one helluva ride. Premiering in January 2012 at the Sundance Film Festival, the film by writer/director Ben Lewin left Park City with considerable buzz, which Fox Searchlight continued to build over the course of the year, culminating in Golden Globe and Indie Spirit nominations for stars John Hawkes and Helen Hunt, and an Oscar nod for Hunt as well. The film tells the remarkable true story of Mark O'Brien, a man afflicted by polio and confined to an iron lung who endeavors to lose his virginity via the help of a sex surrogate. It's a fascinating and often surprisingly funny true story, but the original draft of the tale included some more fantastical elements.

Sony Turning 'Oliver Twist' Into A 'Sherlock Holmes' Movie Basically; Does Charles Dickens Need The Blockbuster Treatment?

One of the most prevalent trends in Hollywood over the past few years is the incessant need to alter classic works like "Alice In Wonderland” or fairy tales like “Snow White” and turn them into giant, ponderous blockbusters. We’ve already had the overblown take on a Grimm fairy tale with “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” and next month sees the release of the similarly overblown “Jack the Giant Killer.” Well, prepare for yourself for the blockbuster take on Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist.”
