Even with only two feature films under his belt, photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn has become a director with a distinct voice. His debut "Control" was a startling look at the life of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, while his followup "The American" placed George Clooney in a pretty nifty anti-thriller that favored mood over action. And so we couldn't be more excited about this next, the John Le Carré adaptation of "A Most Wanted Man." And with production now starting, a few more names an official synopsis have been revealed for the picture.

Is there a rodent problem on the ark? That must be the case, or else Noah missed that whole "two of each" detail from God, because there are a lot of motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking boat.

While the rest of Hollywood spends the next few months jockeying their awards season horses, Universal doesn't have have to worry about that with "The Man With The Iron Fists." It's a kung fu flick, so done and done right? Well, as folks who have been following the RZA directed movie know by now, it's tossing in a few more factors that will make it a bit more than your average chop-socky actioner.

You may have forgotten, given the brouhaha of Danny Boyle's celebrated London Olympics opening ceremony thingy, that he actually has a new movie on the way. "Trance" started filming last September, with the plan to start editing once the director's duties with the mega sporting event were over. Well, that time has arrived and today brings with it some new/old snaps from the movie. Yes, they landed last fall, but here they are as a reminder of what's in store.

Featuring an all-star cast in multiple roles, in a story set across numerous time periods, touching a half-dozen different genres all amidst a sprawling narrative, few films are going as far out on the ledge as this one.

Is director Sally Potter finally having her moment? While "Orlando" put her on the arthouse map in 1992, the ensuing years haven't been easy -- Cate Blanchett, Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci and Focus Features could not help "The Man Who Cried" earn more than $1.7 million globally in 2000, and 2004's "Yes" was killed by a scathing review in Variety even though audiences at the festival adored it. That has still made Potter gunshy about festivals, Telluride in particular, where "Yes" was brutalized.
