Few actresses can make a single look speak volumes as much as Michelle Williams can, and those powers have been harnessed for the new video from indie act Wild Nothing and their video for "Paradise."

Here's how indie movies sneak up on you. This was announced way back in the spring of 2011, before "Homeland" became a big hit, and thus when we saw a new movie with Claire Danes, we sorta just shrugged our shoulders and moved on. But the actress is back in a big way thanks to the hit series (which just got renewed for a third season), and undoubtedly many more eyes will now be on her indie feature "As Cool As I Am," which Radiant Films has just picked up the sales rights for.

"I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight expeditions. Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. I’m in the 'Avatar' business. Period. That’s it. I’m making 'Avatar 2,' 'Avatar 3,' maybe 'Avatar 4,' and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts," James Cameron said this spring. But you can't keep an ever-curious mind focused on just one thing, and it seems the writer/director is not just going to hang around Pandora for the rest of his career.

In the works for nearly two years when Steve Carell first signed on, the rocker dramedy "Imagine" has been moving along very slowly, in fact, not much at all. Last year, Al Pacino signed on followed by more silence, but now with the American Film Market coming up and a spring shoot in the works, there has been a shake up.

In case the "Iron Man 3" duo of the teaser-trailers-for-the-trailer, that itself finally dropped this morning wasn't enough, now the folks over at TriStar are doing the same (though thankfully, with just the one) for their upcoming "The Evil Dead" remake -- despite the fact the New York Comic Con footage (which we're guessing will be what we see tomorrow) widely leaked last week.

We prophesized this film might be the most unintentionally hilarious 3D movie ever made, and it seems that prediction is coming true. Announced with great fanfare more than two years ago as a $100 million (though it's apparently much more than that) Chinese 3D movie production with the "Avatar" 3D camera operator Anthony Arendt lending his talents to the production, with Michael French and Jonathan Lawrence co-directing, word on the movie has been pretty much zilch since. However, it should be noted that Pitof (of the notorious "Catwoman" fame) was originally attached with Monica Bellucci in the lead, and we can't imagine he could have done much worse.

Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be best known to most for his role as the charismatic but despised Jaime Lannister on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” while to the few he’ll be known for his intimidating turn in “Headhunters.” But it increasingly looks like that won’t be the case for long. Coster-Waldau was recently rumoured to be competing with “Lost” vet Josh Holloway for a role in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and now he’s set to star opposite Juliette Binoche in the indie drama “A Thousand Times Good Night.”

James Franco doesn't stop for one second. Currently filming "As I Lay Dying," Franco has been busy overseeing two other projects this year, omnibus efforts by NYU grad students, "Tar" and "Black Dog Red Dog," based the poems of C.K. Williams and Stephen Dobyns, respectively. And one of them is ready to see the light day.

Even though Rome Film Festival head Marco Mueller had been promising two surprise additions to his line-up -- strongly hinting toward Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" being one of them -- we're not sure any of these latest additions qualify as left field shockers. But for cinema buffs, they do promise an interesting time as they gear up for a week long run or so of movies.

He may have left his heart in San Francisco, but for the legendary Tony Bennett, fame, fortune, respect and an impressive career that has spanned over six decades has followed him. At the age of 86, Bennett is still going strong, but he's taken a brief break from his busy schedule and allowed himself to be front and center in "The Zen of Bennett," a new documentary that allows the crooner to talk about his journey in his own words.
