While Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" undoubtedly marked the start of the ascent of Jessica Chastain, it also provided a great debut for its young stars, Hunter McCracken and Tye Sheridan. While the former has yet to book any more projects, the latter has been making his way onto more films, most recently starring in another Cannes premeire, Jeff Nichols' "Mud." And Sheridan is keeping it southern, joining a movie that will have him getting in the Cage.

Every year, many films hit Sundance packed with stars, and featuring a solid name behind the camera, but not all of them live up to expecatation. And by most accounts, "Lay The Favorite" is one of those movies. Boasting a cast that includes Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Vince Vaughn, Laura Prepon, Joshua Jackson and more, with Stephen Frears at the helm, the potential was there for a better-than-average comedy, but judging from the notices out of Park City, the result was less than that.

Of the many long brewing biopics in Hollywood, a movie about James Brown is among them. Spike Lee was once on board the project, with Wesley Snipes as his choice to play the lead, but that iteration has long since been taken off table. Can a powerhouse trio that includes "The Help" director Tate Taylor, super producer Brian Grazer and fan Mick Jagger help this one get on up? (Sorry, we had to).

Just when you thought trailers for trailers couldn't get any dumber, Marvel has decided to create two for what better be a helluva spot for "Iron Man 3" tomorrow because we're sick of posting about this movie already.

While Michael Cera will return to your computer in his most beloved role as George-Michael Bluth in the next season of "Arrested Development," he's always been eager to break out of that mold. And while "Youth In Revolt" was a (half) attempt to do that, his next effort will certainly find him in different waters. And with a different haircut.

This is one on the tongues of cinephiles this fall -- Leos Carax's long-awaited feature film effort, "Holy Motors." While this writer had mixed feelings on the meta movie swirl, it seems to be a minority opinion, as most have been taken by the film's ambition and playfulness. And while New York cinemagoers are already experiencing the film, it won't be expanding nationally until next week, but until then a couple of new clips should tide you over.

While playing a variety of baddies, in equally numerous wigs in The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's forthcoming "Cloud Atlas" might be a fun lark, it's not the kind of role that pays the bills for Hugh Grant. He's a romcom man, and when he's charmingly befuddled, audiences tend to fork over their money to see him haplessly stutter his way through another one of life's romantic adventures.
