As the cinematic year draws to a close, one of the more curious scenes to behold within it found Julie Delpy integrating multi-hyphenate artist Vincent Gallo into the inspirational third act of her film “2 Days in New York.” Not just because Gallo has remained somewhat quiet on the film scene lately, but more due to the absence of his sharp, slightly caustic sensibilities. Well, look no further for a reminder of those qualities.

Given Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie's duties on “The Wolverine” -- a gig that stuck even after Darren Aronofsky's departure from the director's chair last year -- it would make sense that in 20th Century Fox's aims toward building a consistent franchise, discussions between McQuarrie and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer would occur. And according to the director, that's exactly what transpired, with some surprising additional results.

Terence Malick's "To The Wonder"
If you weren't one of those who saw the film in Venice or Toronto this year, you've likely seen very little of Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," the director's uncharacteristically fast-in-arriving follow-up to his wildly acclaimed "The Tree Of Life." Two images from the film have been released, but those who've been avoiding the reviews might not yet have much of an idea of what to expect.

The legend goes that when Wong Kar-Wai brought "2046" to the Cannes Film Festival, the print was still dripping as he worked until the very last minute to finish it. And to say that his latest, the martial arts biopic "The Grandmaster," has had a few road bumps and delays would be an understatement. The film has been in production on and off for the past couple of years, and had things gone according to plan, it would be in theaters in China now, opening this week. But of course, WKW had to continue tinkering, and the release date was pushed to January 8, 2013. But it seems the end is nigh, god willing, and "The Grandmaster" has set an international bow.

This fall, Francis Lawrence suddenly got very busy. Not only is the director helming "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," he locked himself in for the final two movies of the franchise, parts one and two of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay." This effectively means he's busy with the series right through to the end of 2015, which means that the handful of projects he'd been linked to, some of those are going to fall by the wayside. And indeed, one of them has, but it's been picked up by a very big name.

With "The Great Gatsby" now about five months away from hitting theaters, in marketing terms, it's not a long time, and it looks like Warner Bros. is getting the campaign started on the literary adaptation they hope will be a big hit. Earlier today we got character posters for Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher), and now a couple more people from F. Scott Fitzgerald's book are getting the one-sheet treatment.

One movie we hoped might squeak its way onto the release calendar in 2012 was the Coen Brothers' upcoming "Inside Llewyn Davis." The sibling directors have lined up a killer cast for this one with Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund in the pic that's loosely based on the life of Dave van Ronk, an American folk singer who presided over the ‘60s Greenwich Village scene. And as you might expect from that brief description, music is going to be a big part of the movie, and it seems a member of one of the most popular bands around is helping out.

At two hours and forty five minutes, you know that Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” is sprawling and long. So long that Harvey Weinstein suggested cutting the films in two ala “Kill Bill” in the editing room (the idea was nixed obviously). And with a script that was 166 pages (roughly 3 hours), you know that not everything was going to make the cut.

The holidays are all about family, which usually means that when it comes to sitting down with everyone to watch a movie...choices become limited. You won't want anything too raunchy that will offend the grandparents in the room, or too freaky for the parents, so you're usually stuck with something very polite and middle-of-the-road. Suitable for all audiences, as it were. Well, once you've done your familial duties, you might be in the mood for something a bit more risque, well, you'll have options.
