We’re really looking forward to “I Give It a Year,” particularly after the first couple of trailers, which showed a lot of promise and included Minnie Driver uttering the immortal line: “I’d ruin Bieber.” The film will star a whole host of people who are hard not to like, including Stephen Merchant, Jason Flemyng, Anna Faris, Olivia Colman, Simon Baker and the aforementioned Driver. The lead roles are filled by up-and-comer Rafe Spall (who we’ve yet to see be anything short of great in anything on the big screen), and Rose Byrne, who announced to the world how hilarious she was last year in “Bridesmaids.”

"The End Of The World" is coming, and no, we're not talking about the Mayan nonsense that has tinfoil hat types stocking up on batteries and water. We're talking about Seth Rogen's directorial debut (he shares the chair with longtime writing collaborator Evan Goldberg, and yes, they both penned the script), the apocalypse comedy that's now called "This Is The End." And the first red band spot is here.

If there's one sentiment we keep hearing over and over again regarding David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" (especially by Oscar pundits) it's certainly, "When is it going into wide release?" Having won the coveted Toronto International Film Festival Audience Award  -- often a precursor to the Oscar nominations, with "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The Kings Speech" going on to become Best Picture winners -- and landing on a variety of critics lists, in addition to scooping up plenty of acting nominations for the upcoming SAG and Golden Globes awards, The Weinstein Company have been keeping the film on a very slow, simmering build. It's only ever been on 371 screens so far and it's been in theaters for almost 5 weeks. But that's about to change.

To be sure, applying to college is a frenzy of emotions for high school graduates each year, but we can't remember when it was depicted as being this....wacky....as it is in the trailer for "Admission." The film, directed by Paul Weitz ("Being Flynn," "About A Boy"), is a dramedy promising both laughs and perhaps tears, in a movie we're not quite ready to buy a ticket for just yet.

You'll have a lot of options over the holidays at a theater near you, but making its way to cinemas in New York City and Los Angeles this weekend will be "The Impossible." Starting out its journey, and hoping to grab some attention alongside the other awards season players, this one starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts (who is getting buzz for her performance) centers around the devastating 2004 tsunami that occured on Boxing Day. And a new clip places you right at the beginning.

So, this morning a blurry image went around the interwebs of Tom Hardy looking particularly dusty and scruffy, with some claiming it to be the first look (as rough as it is) of the actor in "Mad Max: Fury Road." Well....it is.

Samuel L. Jackson Says M. Night Shyamalan Hasn't Made A Good Movie Since 'Unbreakable'

The last time this writer wrote something even slightly negative about M. Night Shyamalan on this very site – the phrase "diminishing returns" was thrown about if memory serves - it was open season in the comments section. The writer-director certainly still has his passionate fans who don’t need much provocation in order to jump to his defense, but it seems that Samuel L. Jackson isn’t one of them. The actor is known for speaking his mind, and during an interview over at the Huffington Post to promote “Django Unchained” he did just that on a variety of issues, including the career of Shyamalan.
