To get interesting stories made in today's climate, yes you need financing and all the necessary little wheels in motion, but sometimes you just need someone to take an interest and push things forward. And that's just what Matthew McConaughey has done with "The Dallas Buyer's Club." While he's been attached to the film since the spring of 2011, earlier this year he put aside a potential role in Lee Daniels' "The Butler" to really focus on the movie and get it rolling. And now it looks like the fall start date is fast approaching, with casting beginning to gear up, even as one actor drops out.

What do you get when you pair the director of a buzzed-about Sundance hit with a Black List script? You get cautiously optimistic about the prospect of an indie hit, that’s what. Australian director Kieran Darcy-Smith brought his debut feature “Wish You Were Here” to Sundance earlier this year, and the Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer-starring drama was met by pretty decent reviews. Now he’s lining up his next feature.

Considering the movie comes out in about three months, Universal decided they should probably start letting people know it's happening. And thus, the marketing department has slapped together a poster that looks like it was an outtake from the photo sessions for the "Contraband" one sheet. Welcome to "Broken City."

"Never leave the cave!" Voiced by Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman, DreamWorks Animations' "The Croods" is the company's big animated family comedy of 2013. Directed by Chris Sanders (the filmmaker behind "How to Train Your Dragon" and the illustrator who created "Lilo & Stitch") and Kirk DeMicco (writer of "Space Chimps" and the upcoming "Hong Kong Phooey" adaptation), one can only assume that if the film takes off like they hope, franchise is in the cards (and when isn't it for the lucrative field of animation?).

If you're a professional thief, living outside the law, you'd think that if you're going to wear a disguise it would be more than putting on a pair of glasses or wearing a cowboy hat. But then again, when it comes to Jason Statham, he breaks all the rules. The first trailer for "Parker" is here and well...it's a Jason Statham movie.

"This is definitely a story about a guy trying not to be really annoyed by his mother all the time," Seth Rogen told USA Today about "The Guilt Trip" that stars the "Pineapple Express" star alongside Barbra Streisand. And while that annoyance takes center stage in the first trailer for the film, overall it has a heartening, charming vibe that is hard to deny.

This may blow some people's minds, but did you know that it's possible to have two talented filmmakers born into the same family? It's not only possible, it happened to the McDonaghs, whose Martin and John Michael are two of the more interesting filmmakers working today. Martin started as a playwright but debuted his filmmaking skills with the Academy Award-winning short "Six Shooter" before moving on to the 2008 dark comedy "In Bruges" and the upcoming "Seven Psychopaths." John Michael, meanwhile, is starting production on "Calvary," the follow-up to his 2011 black comedy "The Guard."

It's hard to emphasize just how important after school programs are in keeping kids off the streets, being productive and in an environment where they can continue to learn, flourish and grow with their peers. And while for the most part these programs tend to put the focus on the arts and sports, at Broooklyn's I.S. 318, things are a bit different. Chess is king, the cool kids know their rooks from their pawns, and these young players are the driving force behind the upcoming documentary "Brooklyn Castle."
