Bruce Willis had a pretty great 2012, all things considered. There were disappointments, to be sure: ill-conceived Henry Cavill vehicle "The Cold Light Of Day," Stephen Frears' tone-deaf "Lay The Favorite," a brief role in "The Expendables 2" and a straight-to-video picture called "Fire With Fire" alongside Josh Duhamel. But those weaknesses were certainly overshadowed by his far more visible strengths, with the actor giving two of his best performances in years, in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and Rian Johnson's "Looper," the latter of which Willis has described as the best film he's ever been in.

The Sundance Film Festival has been underway for a few days now, but the buyers' market has been slow to get moving. It's not entirely surprising; as we documented last week, a run of disappointments has left distributors a little more cautious than in the past, and with few films attracting across-the-board raves, there's further reason to keep the purse strings tightened until most of the major films have screened.

Last night, Park Chan-wook's highly anticipated English-language debut "Stoker" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and reaction was mixed to say the least. While the film earned praise, some didn't take to the Hitchcockian thriller, and certainly our man on the ground in Park City didn't like it. At all.

With the focus this weekend on Park City with the Sundance Film Festival now in full swing, it might be easy to forget we're still in the midst of the awards season. And even though we're nearing the finishing line, with the Golden Globes already handed out, and a few more major guild awards and the Indie Spirits to come before the Oscars are awarded, critics circles are still getting their two cents in. And the latest to hand down their verdict on the year in film of 2012 are from the U.K., with the London Critics' Circle Awards honoring their winners today. And a big favorite of the season made a considerable impression.

Could there be any movie at the Sundance Film Festival more anticipated – perhaps with a bit of nervousness – than Richard Linklater's "Before Midnight"? With the third romantic outing for Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, fans are hoping the film honors the remarkable and beautiful "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset," and undoubtedly, the picture is easily one of the hottest pictures that distributors may end up battling for. We'll soon know how it plays as the film premieres tonight, but until then, here are some new images from the movie.

It's coming on four years since Werner Herzog's last narrative feature – 2009's "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" – and it looks like we're in for an even longer wait. Initially slated to start shooting in March in Morocco with Naomi Watts, Robert Pattinson and Jude Law, Herzog's biopic of Gertrude Bell – traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century – in "Queen Of The Desert," seems to be on hold.

In what has got to be one of the more exciting horror-related announcements in recent memory, “American Horror Story” mastermind Ryan Murphy is reteaming with his “The Normal Heart” producer Jason Blum (who shepherded the “Paranormal Activity” franchise and has alien abduction chiller “Dark Skies” opening next month) for a remake of the cult classic horror film “The Town That Dreaded Sundown.”

You might remember that just before the film opened nationwide, the always opinionated Spike Lee weighed in on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." "...it's disrespectful to my ancestors, to see that film," he said in an interview, while he also hit Twitter to proclaim, "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them." Since then, there hasn't been much reaction from camp 'Django,' but now Jamie Foxx has broken the silence.

While he might not be churning them out like Jessica Chastain or Matthew McConaughey, every time Leonardo DiCaprio takes on a new project, it's undeniably an event. 2010 saw him star in both Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" and Christopher Nolan's "Inception," the following year he led Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar," and within six months of each other Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" (which were initially slated to be released on the same day). Of course, he also recently wrapped his next re-teaming with Scorsese on "The Wolf Of Wall Street." And now it looks like the actor wants to take a breather.

One of the most enticing, if unknown prospects at the Sundance Film Festival (and one we think could spark a distributor bidding war) is "Lovelace" from "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. And while there has been a lot of pictures and print about the movie thus far, the first clip has arrived to give a small taste of what's to come.
