Writer/director Ava DuVernay knows how to get the word out. While she was worked in a publicity and promotional capacity on nearly one hundred movies ranging from big blockbusters to low key indies, for sophomore feature effort "Middle of Nowhere," her talent did all the talking. Picking up the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival in January and competing for the Grand Jury Prize, her latest is headed to theaters, and with that honor bestowed upon it combined with a cast that includes the rising David Oyelowo, this may be one you'll want to track down.

With a 130-day shoot wrapping at the end of July that saw numerous cast changes, and a film that will find Quentin Tarantino working for the first time without his longtime editor Sally Menke who sadly passed in 2010, it's not a stretch to say that making the Christmas Day release date for "Django Unchained" is going to be tight. But, could the movie be ready in time for a premiere at the Rome Film Festival at the beginning of November? According to some rumors coming out in the run-up to the line-up announcement, it seems the door is at least open.

The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, so naturally, goodies are coming out of the vaults. The latest is the legendary but never-before-released documentary "The Rolling Stones – Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965." Produced by Stones’ manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham, he enlisted director Peter Whitehead ("The Fall," "Tonite Let's All Make Love in London") to travel with the group and film before they broke big and just as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” began to rocket the group to the pinnacle of the U.S. and U.K. charts. The doc will be making its world premiere at the New York Film Festival this weekend (Andrew Loog Oldham himself will be in attendance).

No matter how "Les Miserables" is received, one thing will be clear by the end of the year -- Anne Hathaway can sing. While there have been hints of her powerful pipes in the past, the Tom Hooper-directed Oscar contender will be the biggest showcase yet, but before that movie hits theaters, she'll be giving New Yorkers a sneak preview of her talents.

Sex, drama and comedy are familiar ingredients for any number of movies, but those elements have never quite come together as uniquely as they do in "The Sessions." While much of the Oscar talk over at Fox Searchlight has shifted for the time being to "Hitchcock," which recently threw its hat in the ring with a surprise release date announcement, the indie shingle might have a couple of nominations up their sleeve with this Sundance hit.
