Last week, the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's penultimate "Side Effects" arrived and it was pretty crackling stuff. Both exciting and eerie, it promises a thriller that will be a bit of twisty psychological thriller, and indeed the film's writer Scott Z. Burns (who also penned the Soderbergh directed "Contagion") reveals a variety of intriguing influences on the picture.

Renaissance man Roman Coppola hasn't directed a feature-length movie since the highly underrated "CQ" in 2001, so it's with eager anticipation we look forward to his latest, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." The director may not have helmed a feature in eleven years, but he's been busy, producing his sister Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," co-writing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and shooting second-unit photography for both these filmmakers and his father Francis Ford Coppola (not to mention shooting tons of great music videos in the interim too).

Brewing since 2006, not much has really been known about David Cronenberg's "Map to the Stars." In May he described it as, "very extreme. It's not obviously a very big commercial movie, and even as an independent film it's difficult. 'Maps to the Stars' is completely different [from 'Cosmopolis'], but it's very acerbic and satirical, it's a hard sell." But Cronenberg has made a career out of mounting one "hard sell" picture after another, and thanks to three major stars on board, this one looks like it's getting made.

In a world where "Twilight" fan fiction becomes "Fifty Shades Of Grey" which in turn had Hollywood all hot and bothered to pick up the rights, we suppose we shouldn't be surprised. But using geek ideas to help brainstorm an upcoming tentpole doesn't sound like a good idea. But then again, when it comes to "Transformers 4," the franchise kind of has nowhere else to go but up at this point.

Probably the oddest nugget of auteur/comedy movie trivia to come along since it was revealed that Terrence Malick is a "Zoolander" fan, "The Master" helmer Paul Thomas Anderson reveals he's partial to a bawdy good romp from time to time. And hell, maybe one day he'll just get out there and make is own R-rated filth fest.
