The early months of the year are always a little bleak, cinematically speaking, as the last few weeks have demonstrated ("Gangster Squad," "Movie 43," "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" et al). And bright spots over the next few months are fairly sparse too, but we know for sure that there's some good news on the way, in the shape of Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines." We were always looking forward to it, seeing as it was the follow-up to the director's excellent "Blue Valentine," and that it saw the filmmaker reteam with Ryan Gosling. And with Bradley Cooper, Ben Mendelsohn, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta also on board, our anticipation only increased.

Superfans of canceled series “Bored To Death” thought the news couldn’t get any better when it was announced last week that a movie based on the series is officially in development at HBO -- but it has! Now, THR reports that creator Jonathan Ames and star Jason Schwartzman are collaborating on another separate project, having optioned the rights to Bernard Malamud’s collection of short stories “Pictures of Fidelman,” with plans to co-write an adaptation starring Schwartzman. The script will center on Arthur Fidelman, a hapless art student who travels to Rome in the mid-twentieth century. Sounds about right for Schwartzman, he being the poster-child for privileged melancholia.

When Matteo Garrone burst onto the international scene with the 2008 critically-acclaimed crime drama “Gomorrah,” few would have guessed that his follow-up would revolve around the reality TV show “Big Brother,” but that’s exactly what the Italian director did with “Reality.” And after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival last spring, Oscilloscope Laboratories has released a brand new trailer for the film as it gears up to finally hit theaters.

“Seven Psychopaths” was released back in October to rather tepid fanfare. The film was marginally successful financially and may not have been as beloved as Martin McDonagh’s first feature-length film “In Bruges,” but it still got its fair share of positive reviews. The picture will look to gain some more fans as the Blu-Ray/DVD arrives in stores today, and to honor its release, a deleted scene has just been posted online.

Two of the most-talked about films of last year were united by one thing; both David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" and Leos Carax's "Holy Motors" were set over a single day, and starred a protagonist being driven around a city in a limousine. But what if key participants in both were united in one single project? Surely limo-loving, arthouse-inclined movie fans would be dancing in the street if that were to be the case?

With essentially only the Oscars left to lavish praise upon 2012's films, it seems the opaque, askew nature of Paul Thomas Anderson's “The Master” has left voters with just acting nominations to fully commend. Not that Harvey Weinstein hasn't put his entire support behind the picture to garner more; quite the opposite, but according to him, awards recognition is not the only realm the film will come up short.

And now, THR is reporting that “Taken” helmer Pierre Morel is in negotiations to direct Penn in his own potential franchise with “Prone Gunman.”

While there have been plenty of rumors surrounding Warner Bros.' "Justice League" -- from the (kinda obvious) lineup to the supposed plot centering on baddie Darkseid -- there has been little, if any, official word on the movie. Right now, the studio is keeping their eyes firmly on their Superman reboot "Man Of Steel," and that movie could determine the future of the superhero team-up flick.

So, a 2015 release date for "Star Wars: Episode VII" still isn't locked down, and the planned re-release of the prequels has been scrapped. So what's a "Star Wars" fan to do? Well, thanks to the internet, they can revel in past glory for the time being.

With a poster declaring that it will be "The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience," and a red band trailer serving up tongue slicing, chainsaw maiming mayhem, the folks behind the "Evil Dead" remake are determined to let you know this thing is going for broke. And indeed, the first cut of the movie seems to suggest that they went very, very hard before having to pull back.
