Likely to dominate over the next weeks (though we wonder, with the rather underwhelming reception, if it will be even close to the behemoth the 'LOTR' movies were), "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" has finally arrived in theaters. It has been a long...journey...with studio delays and other woes keeping things held up, but there are a few treats left before you finally see it yourself.

After digesting a meal this month of Very Important Movies, you might be in the mood for something of a palate cleanser, and at least for folks overseas anyway, a very promising and potentially charming rom-com is on the way.

In the last seven years, if you tracked every project filmmaker David O. Russell was linked to, you’d likely find over a dozen films that he was seemingly intended to direct. Even in the two years since “The Fighter,” Russell’s been ostensibly attached to myriad projects -- “Mission” with Brad Pitt,” “American Sniper” with Bradley Cooper and a biopic of former Rhode Island Mayor Buddy Cianci, just to name a few.

2013 is shaping up to be a pretty big year for animated features, with three original animated films from DreamWorks Animation: the hotly anticipated sequels to the wonderful "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and slightly-less-wonderful "Despicable Me," and a new film from "Ice Age" mastermind Chris Wedge. Over the past couple of days, too, we've gotten brand new images from arguably the most exciting projects of next year – Pixar's college-set prequel "Monsters University;" Disney's newest princess endeavor "Frozen," and a pair of Studio Ghibli movies by their cofounders – Isao Takahata's "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter" and Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises."

While we can debate what the best movie of December is, there is no arguing that Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" is the bloodiest. Using more ketchup packets than a weekend at the world's busiest McDonalds, the red stuff explodes all over this picture. And these vicious new pictures from the film graphically put that on display.

Earlier this week while talking to one of our favorite directors, David Cronenberg, about the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of his underrated 2012 gem "Cosmopolis," we asked the filmmaker about a pair of his most tantalizingly unrealized projects: a sequel to his tremendous gangster movie "Eastern Promises" and a spin-off/sequel/something to his 1986 sci-fi classic "The Fly" (itself a remake of the considerably sillier film of the same name from 1958).

Okay, we've had the lists from the high brow movie magazines, the exclusive critics groups, various newspapers and magazines, but what about one from somewhere that has a bit of pulse on what the folks are actually seeing at the multiplex? Well, MTV has dropped their top ten movies of the year, and while some may balk at the populist list, we gotta give them credit for highlighting a couple of overlooked movies.

Terence Malick's "To The Wonder"
The mercurial methods of Terrence Malick tend to affect his actors in various ways. Christopher Plummer vowed to never work with him again, Ben Affleck said the experience "was a wash" in terms of learning or gaining anything, while Christian Bale seems to love the whole process, starring in "The New World" and now leading Malick's next two pictures. The director's methods are as unique as they are baffling, and Olga Kurylenko, star of his upcoming "To The Wonder" shared some of his unique requests.

It would seem that Nicolas Winding Refn is doing anything but getting his highly anticipated "Only God Forgives" into theaters. Since the film has wrapped, he's shot a Gucci ad with Blake Lively, a Yves St Laurent spot with Jessica Chastain, and is signed up to direct Sony's "The Equalizer" with Denzel Washington. Meanwhile, his re-teaming with Ryan Gosling remains hidden away -- but it looks like the picture could be gearing up to bring both the director and star back to the Cannes Film Festival.
