Studios continue to hunt the great white whale of the young adult franchise. With "Twilight" over, "The Hunger Games" is the only player in town, but 2013 brings two contenders to the fore: "Beautiful Creatures" which we're only watching because of Emmy Rossum and "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" whose title we don't understand. "Divergent" with Shailene Woodley will get in front of cameras later this year, and now Disney is eager to get into the ring.

It seems that what goes on behind closed doors continues to fascinate director Im Sang-Soo. Two years after remaking the South Korean classic "The Housemaid," the director returned to the Cannes Film Festival with "The Taste Of Money," a potent blend of sex, love, deceit and much, much more. And with the movie now in limited release, we have an exclusive clip to show you the wicked world this film takes place in.

With Ridley Scott executive producing, James McAvoy in the lead, a supporting cast that includes Mark Strong, Andrea Riseborough, Peter Mullan and more, all in a gritty crime flick directed by the rising auteur Evan Creevy, perhaps expectations were a bit higher for "Welcome To The Punch." We figured it might be the kind of thing that rolled into SXSW or Sundance, but instead, you can just check it out at home at the end of March.

For a while there, riding in the wake of the success of "Crazy Heart," director Scott Cooper put his name to a not insignificant number of potential projects, before finally mounting "Out Of The Furnace" last year. And it looks like one of those movies is moving on without him.

There was a time when Kenneth Branagh was best known for his Shakespeare adaptations, but he's always had a tentpole heart it seems. Going all the way back to 1994's "Frankenstein," which seemed like an anomaly at the time, he's shown a knack for big screen spectacle, and after helming "Thor" he took the gig directing "Jack Ryan." Unlikely? Maybe, but once again, Branagh is ready to play with a lot of money and special effects.

So, we may have had four weeks of movies already in the new year, but frankly, 2013 doesn't start for us cinematically until next week, when Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects" arrives. It seems to be the first movie of the year that wasn't dumped or forgotten about by the studios, and made with some real intent and purpose. And now another whole new look at the picture has arrived.

As immigration reform once again becomes a hotly debated topic among the halls of Washington power players, there is perhaps no better time for "The Girl" to be hitting theaters. After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival last spring, and hitting the Austin Film Festival last year as well, the picture is finally gearing up for audiences everywhere. And we have some exclusive new images and a featurette for the picture that boasts a strong lead turn from Abbie Cornish.
