Fresh off a surprise private screening announcement and the excellent trailer that accompanied it, the Coen Brothers' latest, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” has splashed back onto our radars in a massive way. Set to capture the '60s Greenwich Village folk music scene in stunning visuals and the duo's signature dialogue, the aim is to stop right there regarding well-worn attributes, and now a few new images and quotes from Joel Coen are here to show us how.

Ask, and ye shall receive. Or something. In the wake of all that noise around Lance Armstrong's confession that he doped, Bradley Cooper told the BBC he'd be interested in playing the disgraced cyclist. "I remember Matt Damon was going to do his autobiography at one point years ago," he said. "I remember thinking, that would be a great character, I'd love to play that character. I would love to do something, I think he's pretty fascinating." Well, it just might happen.

J.J. Abrams,  'Star Wars'
May the wait be longer... With J.J. Abrams now officially on board to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7," and Disney confirming the news late last week, fans are now patiently waiting for 2015, the date that was first tossed out for the potential release. But it looks like that may not be set in stone. In fact, Disney's press release announcing Abrams made no mention of a release date at all, and this is perhaps why....

Well, it looks like the gang's all here. Rumors ran rampant that Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" would be bringing back a number of the series' more well-known characters, with Hugh Jackman confirmed to appear alongside Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan. But Bryan Singer has confirmed via Twitter that, not only are they looking to bring back as many cast members as possible from the original trilogy, but that Brett Ratner's lambasted "X-Men: The Last Stand" is definitely canon.

The conversation for basically the next two years will be just how J.J. Abrams will approach "Star Wars: Episode 7" now that he's officially confirmed to direct. We've already discussed five things he may be bringing to the table, and suggested ten ways he can ensure the next sequel is great. But given the shroud of secrecy he puts on all of his projects, Abrams won't tell us anything until he's damn well good and ready. So until then, to the mashups!

If there's anything at all to gather from these new images from Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," it's this: love is a bummer. And indeed, nothing really ends well for Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem in the film, but at least they look pretty damn good.

The German series "Durch die Nacht mit..." ("Into The Night") is the gift that keeps on giving. The show, which gets two artists together and then just shoots them as they hang out and talk over a single day, has already yielded a great episode featuring Harmony Korine and Gaspar Noé (which you can watch right here). And now, making another case that a U.S. broadcaster (IFC maybe?) should snap up the rights and bring it over stateside, the show that aired this summer featuring Terry Gilliam and Jon Landis has made its way online.
