Frank Miller isn't a complicated man, but his work does seem to suggest that he's fine with sticking to the "Sin City"/"The Spirit" millieu thankyouverymuch. And after teaming with Evan Rachel Wood and Chris Evans a couple of years ago for a stylish Gucci spot, the director has paired up with the actors again to make another ad for the fashion house.

The Romanian New Wave might not excite mainstream audiences much, but it's been gathering increasing fans among savvy arthouse audiences since the mid-'00s. Something of a benched player on the cultural circuit pre-2000, Romania has come firrmly onto the scene with festival domination and critical deference, and within this New World of indie sensations, Cristian Mungiu is, well, kind of a big deal.

Those with their ear to the ground likely already know the name of director Álex de la Iglesia. He's the helmer behind the somewhat insane "The Last Circus," which made some big waves on the festival circuit in 2010, and his follow-up is no less unique. "As Luck Would Have It" features Salma Hayek in a co-starring role in a tale that uses an extraordinary situation to explore the current state of the news and entertainment media.

There are few provocateurs who continue to delight, surprise and shock, yet still remain as unpredictable as Harmony Korine. If anyone would have guessed that after the ugly (and awesome) lo-fi wonder "Trash Humpers" he would have turned around and made a (relatively) mainstream, neon-soaked movie with a bunch of teen starlets, we'd like to meet them. But as always, just when you think it's going to go right, Korine goes left.

Even before it makes its way into theatres, Richard Curtis’ latest romantic comedy, "About Time," is showing its time-travelling prowess. The Working Title feature starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson follows a 21-year-old who finds out he can time travel, and uses his ability to go back in time and meet the girl he loves for the first time, over and over again. The film was due for release on May 10th, but Universal has sent it back to the future and it will now debut on November 1st.

Docs, docs, docs. That's what we're selling folks, so get 'em while they're still hot. An American mayor, Israeli intelligence agents, professional hockey players, and Dave Grohl lead the way on the documetary front. Alternately, you could tamper all that reality with a heavy dose of cinematic illusion and façade: aging hitmen, gun-toting Lolitas fighting the good fight for gender equality, and the walking undead, oh my! (And yes, by "façade," we do mean "Sly's perfectly and uncannily preserved face.") Which direction will you take this weekend? Or are you watching the Super Bowl with the rest of America? Let us know in the comments below!

"Hot Fuzz" aside, the history of the British cop/action film is not a glorious one. Indeed, it's hard to think of a truly successful one that plays it straight, especially with recent disappointments like "Blitz" and "The Sweeney" fresh in the memory. But there's one sneaking up that we've had high hopes for for some time.

Fans of Neil Jordan know that his upcoming "Byzantium" certainly isn't his first time around the bloodsucker block. But the ever curious director was intrigued to try and shake things up, even though it seemed like familiar territory. "It was a chance to return to the territory of 'Interview With the Vampire' and 'The Company of Wolves,' " he told us at TIFF last fall. "I think the whole thing was a great opportunity to really reinvent the vampire legend really. It's become a bit tired of late, you know?" Well, you can see if he succeeded as the first international trailer has made its way online.

At first, many were surprised when Roman Coppola chose Charlie Sheen to star in his long-awaited sophomore feature "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III." The actor was coming off of his infamous meltdown and was largely uninsureable, but what some folks may not know is that the pair have been friends since childhood, first meeting on the set of "Apocalypse Now" (directed by Roman's Dad, and starring Charlie's father). And the project was one Coppola had been brewing for a long time, spurred by his own relationship troubles which he shared with Sheen.

One was the star of the recently cancelled sitcom “Ben and Kate,” while the other plays the sene-stealing Dean Pelton on “Community,” but together Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are the Academy Award-winning screenwriting duo behind “The Descendents.” The pair also recently hit Sundance to premiere their directorial debut (which they also wrote, exec-produced and starred in) “The Way, Way Back” (our review here) featuring Sam Rockwell, Toni Collette and Steve Carell, which was picked up by Fox Searchlight in one of the festival’s biggest acquistions. Unsurprisingly Fox Searchlight wants to stay in the Rash-Faxon business, and they’ve acquired an untitled pitch from the pair.
