We're barely three months into 2013, and director Michel Gondry is serving up plenty for his fans. His long brewing Noam Chomsky documentary, "Is The Tall Man Happy?" has started screening and later on this year, he'll deliver the whimsical "Mood Indigo." But before that, the writer/director will help usher in summer with "The We And The I," another interesting gear change for Gondry that finds him working with non-actors, in a unique story that follows a group of teenagers on a city bus on the last day of school.

There have been a number of questions and rumors surrounding “Star Wars: Episode VII” ever since its original announcement, especially regarding the cast. After it was announced last month that Harrison Ford will most likely be returning to play Han Solo, the attention then turned to whether or not Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher would be returning as well. While we’ve already heard rumors that they might come back, Fisher herself has recently confirmed that she will indeed be coming back to the franchise.

Can Disney Keep The $325 Million 'Oz The Great And Powerful' From Becoming Another 'John Carter'?

It's unfortunate that director Andrew Stanton has to deal with his $250 million-budgeted “John Carter” being synonymous with high-stakes cinematic failure, but such are the risks that come with the gamble. Bryan Singer is the latest to join the club however, after “Jack the Giant Slayer” ($195 million) swiftly bombed at the box office this past weekend, earning just $27.2 million. Now, Disney is again on the chopping block with their similarly massive “Oz The Great and Powerful" (our review),” but will Sam Raimi's direction and Mila Kunis' intense likability score a successful result at last for the studio?

Exclusive: Poster For SXSW Rock Doc 'Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker'

There are a lot of things to take in at SXSW -- BBQ, beer, movies and just the general vibe of Austin, Texas in the spring. But just as integral is the music. As usual, each year the SXSW Film Festival dedicates a section of their programming to movies and documentaries about music, and one that might be worth tracking down between platters of ribs is a film about who Dr. John described as "the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced."

'TMNT' Co-Creator Peter Laird Says There Are "Hundreds Of Better Choices" Than Megan Fox For April O'Neil Role

After adjusting herself well to supporting comedy roles in “Friends with Kids” and “This is 40,” we were optimistic for more than a career detour for Megan Fox, but alas, Michael Bay has denied that wish. The director has lured her back with his delayed “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot and likely the character of April O'Neil, but now one involved party -- the comic's creator Peter Laird -- remains pretty confused about the entire decision.

While Michael Giacchino is best known for working with frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams, and for his efforts on Pixar projects which resulted in his Oscar win for "Up," it looks like the composer to set to add another pair of directors to his roster of regulars.

Well, it's hard to argue with a cast that includes George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and John Goodman. Indeed, that's the impressive lineup Clooney has put together for his next directorial effort "Monuments Men" (which yes, he's also starring in) but if it feels like there's a name missing, well, there is.

Sam Mendes Says He Won't Direct The Next James Bond Film

Even those with cooler feelings about the film itself have to acknowledge that Sam Mendes' Bond movie "Skyfall" was a wild success. With a BAFTA for Best British Film, five Oscar nominations (winning two), and a global box office of $1.1 billion, making it the seventh-biggest film of all time, and nearly twice as big as "Casino Royale," the most successful 007 film before that, few could argue that it's been anything other than a triumph.

So, how good was that "Iron Man 3" trailer earlier today, right? While we might still prefer Drunken Asshole Stark over Insomnia Stark, it looks like writer/director Shane Black has delivered a third entry that will distinctly step away from the first two instalments, going for something grittier, with higher stakes than ever before. And if you're looking for one more reason to watch the trailer, well, you got one now.

"Stories We Tell," Sarah Polley
“I’m interested in the way we tell stories about our lives, about the fact that the truth about the past is often ephemeral and difficult to pin down,” actor/director/writer Sarah Polley says at the beginning of the new trailer for her upcoming documentary, "Stories We Tell," and that ain't the half of it. It's a documentary you don't want to know too much about, but suffice to say it's a Polley-led examination of her family's complicated past told by everyone involved which leads to a kind of amazing "Rashomon" effect.
