While his Formula 1 racing drama “Rush” doesn’t surface until the fall, it seems that Ron Howard was impressed with his leading man, as Vulture is reporting that the “Apollo 13” helmer is circling a project that would reunite him with Chris Hemsworth.

Yeah, yeah we know... This year's Oscars are still about a month away, but we're already starting to see the next awards season shape up. Films like "Captain Phillips" and "Saving Mr. Banks" -- both starring Tom Hanks, mind you -- have already staked out fall dates, and now another big contender is swinging onto the playing field.

So, the anthology comedy "Movie 43" is coming to theaters this weekend, and yet despite the massive, star-driven cast, it seems the picture is being kinda buried. No press screenings seem to be happening, perhaps proving that you can round up as many big stars as you want, but if the material isn't there, they can't make it work. So in a bid to get you to buy a ticket, a full segment has dropped online and it will perhaps entertain you enough that you might just wander over to a theater to see it for curiousity's sake.

The last time we saw the talented and beautiful Rosario Dawson at the multiplex, it was unfortuantely in the Kevin James vehicle "The Zookeeper." Since then, she's done a string of indies -- "10 Years" and "Hotel Noir" perhaps the most notable -- but she's heading back toward the mainstream in 2013. She's currently lensing the highly anticipated sequel, "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," she leads Danny Boyle's spring thriller "Trance" (more on that in a second) and now she's booking a gig in a very promising drama as well.

While Park City is already starting to empty, don't be fooled, as there are plenty more films to come before things wrap up. And one that many are curious about is "Jobs," the biopic of Steve Jobs with Ashton Kutcher in the lead that premieres as the closing night entry of the Sundance Film Festival. But if you're eager to see it soon, you won't have to wait too long.

Coming up in the next few months are a pair of interesting looking projects from two directors who couldn’t be more different if they tried. There’s Steven Soderbergh’s “Side Effects” which is set for a February 8th release, and there’s also Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain” scheduled for release on April 26th. And what do they have in common, you ask? Well, not a lot, except they’ve both just received new TV spots.

Watch: New, Foulmouthed International Trailer For 'The Heat' With Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."

George Tillman Jr. arrives at Sundance this year with a film significantly more anticipated than his previous two efforts (“Notorious” and “Faster”) in the form of “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.” The film will tell the story of two kids from Brooklyn who are left to fend for themselves one summer after their mothers are both detained by the authorities. Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Skylan Brooks (playing Mister), Ethan Dizon (playing Pete) and Jordin Sparks all star in what Sundance have described as “a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough.”

With its Feb. 13th release date impending, two clips from Warner Bros. hopeful new YA franchise film “Beautiful Creatures” have been released. For those who haven’t been keeping up, the fantasy romance is adapted from the first in a series of books by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and centers on two teens in the deep south who are drawn together by a strange connection and supernatural secrets.

When it was first announced last summer that David Gordon Green had gone ahead a shot a movie in secret with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, we didn't know what to think. A remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way" which nobody (who isn't in Iceland) had really seen anyway, the question was whether or not it was going to be another comic goof, or perhaps something closer to the mood and tone of his earlier work. Well, it turns out its both of those things.
