You guys! If the bro-tacular 'splosions in the "Fast & Furious 6" Super Bowl trailer left you wanting more, well good news dudes. Pull out a Red Bull and sit back because a full three minute, steroid pumped, gasoline soaked trailer is here for the sequel, so get ready because Toretto still has some tanktops to wear.

Someone out there must have seen something that we, as yet, have not, but it looks like Hollywood is still trying to make Sam Claflin happen. The young British actor was virtually anonymous in “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” but that didn’t stop him lining up a key role in “The Hunger Games” franchise as Finnick Odair. Perhaps it’s that the films we’ve seen him in so far haven’t really harnessed his talents (and that’s perfectly feasible considering their respective quality), so we’ll hold out hopes that he’ll bring the goods in the future; perhaps in “Love, Rosie,” in which he’s just been cast alongside Lily Collins.

“The Book Thief,” the WWII Germany-set children’s novel by Marcus Zusak that spent over 280 weeks on the New York Times’ bestseller list, has been gearing up for the big screen for a little while now, and has attracted quite the international cast to help bring the story to life.

When “Magic Mike” arrived in theaters last June, it was a rousing success. The Steven Soderbergh-directed male stripper film starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey raked in over $167 million worldwide and has subsequently spawned a franchise. Already, there is a "Magic Mike 2" in the works, as reported last July, with producer/actor Tatum declaring that they want to “make it bigger.” However, weeks before a sequel was ever announced, there had been reports that the guys behind "Magic Mike" -- screenwriter Reid Carolin with Soderbergh and Tatum producing -- were also working on turning the movie into a Broadway musical. Well, for those who have been eagerly anticipating this, here’s another reason to get jacked up about it.

With his previous effort nearly five years behind him, news regarding any future Andrew Bujalski projects had been scant to say the least. The indie filmmaker, who’s been given the dubious distinction as being called “the godfather of mumblecore,” is finally back in the limelight with his latest film “Computer Chess.” The crowdsourced fourth feature film from the director recently screened at Sundance where it won the Alfred P. Sloan Prize, and now a teaser trailer has landed and it's a wonderfully weird look at the movie.

After hitting the festival circuit last year -- it played at Cannes, TIFF and the New York Film Festival, among others -- Abbas Kiarostami’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed Euro-set “Certified Copy,” the companion piece and Japan-set “Like Someone In Love," is finally hitting theatres stateside this month. With little under a week to go, a U.S. trailer has finally been released by the distributor.

A tumultuous shoot, a volatile leading lady, and a veteran director collaborating with one of the most visible Twitter presences around; Kenneth Anger might just need to devote the entirety of “Hollywood Babylon IV” to Paul Schrader's “The Canyons” alone. But before that volume comes out, we've got the filmmaker's latest rebuttal against early criticisms of the film, as well as Steven Soderbergh hinting at what's in store when it's finally released.

Ex-CIA Director Leon Panetta Approves Of 'Zero Dark Thirty,' Says Torture Was Not 'Critical Element' To Bin Laden's Capture

Kathryn Bigelow's “Zero Dark Thirty” is an absolute compendium of blink-and-you'll-miss-them acting roles, from the narratively vital (Joel Edgerton) to the completely jarring (John Barrowman, what?). One of the most essential, though, comes from James Gandolfini as then-CIA director Leon Panetta, and the man himself has recently thrown some insight -- and kudos -- toward Bigelow's drama.

However Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" turns out, it seems the movie has made theater owners very happy. In case you missed it, over the weekend reports surfaced that distributors were encouraging the director to make a sequel to the movie, which is apparently doing quite well in China and Hong Kong, and moreover, that he's considering it. But for now, he's got some other things on his mind, namely the Berlin International Film Festival which starts on Thursday, where he'll not only be presiding over the jury, but he'll have this film kick off the fest.

For someone who might be one of the most sought-after directors around right now, Rupert Wyatt is certainly taking his time picking his next project. It's been eighteen months since Wyatt's second film, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," proved to be a surprisingly huge hit, which marked him in the eyes of many as the next Christopher Nolan. But Wyatt dropped out of the sequel, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," citing a reluctance to rush the film for a summer 2014 release date, and while other films are in the mix -- sci-fi actioner "Agent 13" with Charlize Theron, based-in-fact Russian spy tale "Londongrad" -- the only thing Wyatt has committed to is the pilot of AMC's Civil War-era spy series "Turn."
