At this point, Paul Dano has accomplished a lot in his still-young career. He's logged time with auteurs like Paul Thomas Anderson and Ang Lee, starred in strong indie comedies like "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Ruby Sparks," gone the blockbuster route with "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Knight And Day," and last year, he dipped his toe into heady sci-fi with Rian Johnson's "Looper." From to drama to romance to comedy, he's done it all (except maybe horror), but now he's tasked with the tremendous responsibility of playing one of music history's most beloved and influential writers and performers.

Here's a reminder, as the Sundance Film Festival gets underway, that not every movie at a festival is going to make it or be remembered. And so it goes for "The Playroom." The film starring John Hawkes and the underrated Molly Parker premiered last spring to not much fanfare at the Tribeca Fim Festival, and even with someone like Hawkes in the cast, it failed to get much traction. And now, just under a year later, it's quite ready to quietly be released and live the rest of its life out in the wild.

It's not exactly a surprise that the guy who created a serial killer tire movie "Rubber," and turned a lost dog into a surreal journey for his upcoming "Wrong," has gone ahead and put together yet another oddball goof. Quentin Dupieux keeps churning out the strange and weird, and his latest, "Wrong Cops" is yet another dip into the oddball. But wait, haven't you heard of this one for a while now? Well, yes...

How far would you go to have everything you ever wanted? That's the question at the heart of the upcoming comedy "The Brass Teapot," and for Michael Angarano and Juno Temple, taking a few hits to the body to keep the cash coming in seems to be worth it... at first.

The Sundance Film Festival is now underway, which means the next week or so is going to be a blitzkrieg of announcements, buzz, hype and more from the films showing their stuff up in Park City. But the first juicy nugget of news doesn't come from any of the movies, but from the festival's founder Robert Redford, and it's about one of his forthcoming pictures from a Sundance alum.

After years of skirting the line between ambitious porn director and envelope-pushing cinematic auteur, often releasing hardcore DVD versions and softcore festival-circuit versions of his works, Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce is making a modest attempt to tap into the mainstream with his latest project, entitled "Gerontophilia." The premise: A virile teenage boy with heterosexual leanings develops an unlikely fetish for elderly men, falling in love with one in particular, whom he helps to escape from his nursing home.

Can anyone play gruff, grizzly, still kind of endearing but totally standoffish better than Tommy Lee Jones? For this writer, he pretty much walked away with Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" as the idealistic yet conflicted Thaddeus Stevens (equally awesome was James Spader, but that's for a whole different article). Not to knock the man's talents, but he does pretty much the same characterization in another war movie, the upcoming "Emperor," this time as General Douglas McArthur. And now the first trailer is here to show you what it's all about.

Well, this is kind of obvious, but if anything, it's another reminder that Oscar host Seth MacFarlane was behind one of the biggest comedy hits of 2012. That's right, the director of "Ted" is gearing up to bring his offbeat brand of comedy to a primetime cable event, and to help out is the little creature that helped push his directorial debut to over $500 million.

While Megan Ellison has made her name on working with auteurs like Paul Thomas Anderson, Harmony Korine and Kathryn Bigelow, she's got blockbuster aspirations. Way back in the spring of 2011, she snapped up the rights to the "The Terminator" franchise, and while there has been plenty of speculation and rumor, there hasn't been much in the way of action. But last month, movement began with her brother David Ellison of Skydance ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Jack Reacher," "Star Trek Into Darkness") teaming up with her on "The Terminator," and now the project is taking on some fresh blood.
