A comedy centered on two very different sisters, featuring a solid cast including Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber, Melonie Diaz, Geoffrey Arend and Timothy Busfield, the Sundance rom-com "Save the Date" has been rather quiet since it premiered in Utah earlier this year. But IFC Films, releasing the picture later this fall, is finally bringing their campaign to life. Directed by Michael Mohan ("One Too Many Mornings") the first trailer for the film has arrived and it quotes our review from Sundance where we described it as an "endearing" picture that "other rom-coms should aspire to be." And indeed, it does look charming while still containing some emotional depth and smarts.

With a stellar reaction at the New York Film Festival last month, Ang Lee’s 3D opus “Life Of Pi” is turning into a major awards contender and now the studio is amping up its marketing push, hoping to crossover from critical raves to actual box office success. 20th Century Fox has released both a behind-the-scenes featurette and a clip.

"It's long," Leslie Mann told Collider this summer about "This Is 40." "The first cut was really long, but now he's gotten it down to I think... two [hours] and change? But it's worth it, you want it to be that long." Now it seems the "change" for Judd Apatow's latest has added up.

Machete doesn't do promotion we guess. Either that or Amber Heard is better eye candy. Probably the latter, since the first offiical image from "Machete Kills" has arrived and it looks positively domestic.

We're almost a full year from when "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" hit theaters, and we're still no closer to figuring out what David Fincher's next feature film will be. Of course, not that he's been sitting around idle -- he has spent the bulk of 2012 producing and directing "House Of Cards," the Netflix and Media Rights Capital series that will hit the streaming service next year. And while "The Girl Who Played With Fire" won't be coming anytime before 2014, with Fincher saying in August he's "trying to figure [it] out," a past collaborator could kickstart a project that's been brewing for a while.

With "Killer Elite," "The Grey," "Lockout" and "End Of Watch" among the titles of the nascent distributors Open Road, it's safe to say they specialize in a particular niche. Low to modest budget genre fare with a touch of star or brand power (ie. "Silent Hill"). And now they've picked up a project that has both.

There is no doubt stardom is coming for Shailene Woodley. After breaking out in last year's "The Descendants," she has lined up two indies with acclaimed filmmakers Gregg Araki and James Ponsoldt ("Smashed"), and just over a week ago, it was revealed she was in talks to play Mary Jane Watson in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." But could a young adult franchise be her ticket to bigger things, launching her career the way it has for Kristen Stewart ("Twilight") and Jennifer Lawrence ("The Hunger Games")?

Between 2009’s brutal thriller “Katalin Varga” and this year’s audio-based horror-thriller “Berberian Sound Studio,” British director Peter Strickland has found himself receiving no end of critical praise. The latter, his most recent feature, was released in the U.K. towards the end of August and has played to North American audiences at TIFF, Fantastic Fest, and most recently the New York Film Festival, to a generally positive reception.

Even though they apparently had a script from Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa that they liked, once a new director boards a project, tweaks happen, and so that's what's going on with "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes." Surviving a brief scare after Rupert Wyatt bailed, Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield," "Let Me In") is tackling the sequel and a new writer is coming on board.

With the Jerry Sandusky verdict still in recent memory, and Boy Scouts finally releasing their decades worth of evidence of abuse within the organization, sexual exploitation of minors is sadly still at the forefront of the nation's concerns. But perhaps what blew the doors off in terms of exposing the depths of these crimes, and willingness of trusted officials to cover them up, was the revelation nearly a decade ago that the diocese was protecting priests accused of horrific abuses. And that story is now being given the big screen treatment.
