Many Pixar heads would probably like to fast forward right through 2013 and get to 2014 already. Just as the New Year rang in yesterday, the beloved animation studio dropped a preview of their exciting slate from 2014 onward, which includes "The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind," "The Untitled Pixar Movie About The Día de los Muertos" and "The Good Dinosaur." But before we get there, there will be one more spin around the block for some familiar characters.

Even though the theatrical cut runs well over two hours, it seems that, as usual, a lot of material has been left on the cutting room floor from Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." And with the story (partially) centering on the floundering business of Paul Rudd's character's record label, it would appear that at one time there was a lot more focus on the artists he was representing or looking to sign.

As videogames get more cinematic, it only makes sense that big-screen adaptations continue to percolate in Hollywood, and right now Ubisoft is leading the way with star-driven features. 2012 saw them get both "Assassin's Creed" and "Splinter Cell" off the ground, with Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy in the lead roles respectively. Now another big title from Ubisoft is going to be making the rounds to studios.

Up until “Inglorious Basterds,” and stretching all the way back to the first feature of his career, “Reservoir Dogs,” ever-present alongside Quentin Tarantino was his editor Sally Menke. She was twice nominated by the Academy for her work with QT (and three times by BAFTA), but sadly Menke passed away in 2010 at the age of 56. Fred Raskin (a former assistant editor under Menke on “Kill Bill” and the editor of the last three “Fast & Furious” films) took over editing duties on “Django Unchained,” and Menke's must have been some tough shoes to fill.

Who knows what to think about Paul Schrader’s upcoming directorial feature, “The Canyons”? Penned by everyone’s favorite Twitter troll Bret Easton Ellis, and starring Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen and, erm, Gus van Sant, the Kickstarter-funded sexual thriller certainly has us intrigued if nothing else. After a grindhouse-style teaser trailer and a 1950s B-movie style trailer, we’ve now got another look at the upcoming film in what promises to be the final “parody trailer.”

One of the many pleasures of the Criterion Collection comes in the form of their monthly newsletters, in which they make good on a series of crude drawings hinting at upcoming releases (which in 2012 gave us a Robert Downey Sr. retrospective, “Quadrophenia,” and “Harold and Maude” among many others). It's a fun, collaborative peek into the months ahead, and in their fourth-annual Mega-Clue drawing for 2013, the folks over at CriterionCast have parsed out what looks to be a promising year indeed.

Antoine Fuqua Calls Out Spike Lee for Publicly Trashing 'Django Unchained' (But Hasn't Seen The Movie Yet Either)

A little over one week in theaters, and after a tremendous Christmas weekend opening for the film garnering $64 million, director Spike Lee might just have played a key role in the success of Quentin Tarantino's “Django Unchained.” His public refusal to see the western, calling it “disrespectful to my ancestors,” raised the film's profile to perhaps its highest political platform, and as fierce analysis of the ambitiously wild project continues post-release, another director has come to the movie's defense.
