There may be snow on the ground, and the daylight hours are short, but believe us when we say spring is around the corner. And nothing says spring like the smell of the grass on the field and sound of a baseball hitting the bat. After watching the new trailer for the Jackie Robinson biopic "42," you might be eager to start oiling your glove.

There are a few ways to start this article. We could talk about the film's indie cred, with its Kickstarter-fueled funding and low-budget, digital-filmmaking approach. We could talk about it being a cautionary tale about working with Lindsay Lohan (more on that in a moment). But instead, we'll start with this quote from the film's screenwriter, Bret Easton Ellis, about the Paul Schrader-directed "The Canyons": “The film is so languorous. It’s an hour 30, and it seems like it’s three hours long. I saw this as a pranky noirish thriller, but Schrader turned it into, well, a Schrader film.”

It came as a surprise to many when "Texas Chainsaw 3D" topped the box office last weekend, hauling in $21.7 million and beating out "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "Django Unchained" and "Les Miserables" in the process. What wasn’t so surprising was the subsequent news that a sequel to the movie was already underway. Well, as it turns out, looks like someone might have spoken a little too soon regarding that information.

Sprung from a five-page treatment and fashioned into a striking blend of drama and documentary, writer/director Matt Porterfield's “Putty Hill” took a community's reaction to a young death and explored it from a number of different angles. Now, with that film leading into a successful Kickstarter campaign for his third feature, “I Used to Be Darker,” a trailer for the Sundance-bound result has finally hit the web.

Like Jason Statham, Mark Wahlberg reliably brings audiences out to the theaters, which is how we get something like last year’s mid-budgeted action thriller “Contraband” or the upcoming Allen Hughes-helmed “Broken City.” While the January release date suggests yet another generic Wahlberg actioner, “Broken City” boasts Russell Crowe in a co-starring role, and three new clips have hit the web showcasing the actor sliming it up.

With the one-two punch of the animated “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and last year’s “Moonrise Kingdom,” Wes Anderson has reinvigorated his career and is already hard at work on his next film, “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” While little is known about the film, other than it being another period piece, slowly but surely he has revealed the grand ensemble he’s assembled which now will include character actor and ‘Moonrise’ narrator Bob Balaban.

“Gangster Squad” may have earned the title of First Major DisappointmentOof 2013, but new movies from both Park Chan-Wook and Steven Soderbergh around the corner, are enough to keep morale high. Park is of course taking a gamble with his first English-language film “Stoker,” but with the Rooney Mara/Channing Tatum thriller “Side Effects,” Soderbergh has his retirement in mind, looking to exit on a high note as two new images and a few choice quotes appear to suggest.

Over the last few years, we've seen Michael Fassbender in a number of different guises; British agent disguised as a Nazi, Roman warrior, Gothic romantic lead, metal-bending Holocaust-surviving mutant, repressed psychotherapist, rampant sex addict, treacherous secret agent, and Peter O'Toole-ish android. But his next project promises to show him in a guise that we've never seen before from the Irish-German actor.

So here we are. The moment that basically every film fan (even if some are openly hostile to the idea) sees as their Superbowl; the announcement of the Academy Award nominations, for the 85th time, in this case. Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone took to the stage at 5.30 PST to deliver the news, after months of the usual feverish speculation. So how did things turn out?
