After a John Williams-drunk official trailer premiered last week, the question still remained on what exactly we were getting from "Lincoln." Even in the Google Hangout thing (which was kind of unwatchable), Steven Spielberg took great pains to point out that the trailer was a snippet and a suggestion of the film, rather than a complete representation of what he's bringing to the table. Well, audiences and critics will get a taste of the movie in full when it makes its world premiere at the AFI Film Festival in November as the official Closing Film on November 8th, before opening just over a week later on November 16th.

While never approaching the realm of a genre classic, even the most ardent detractor of Brett Ratner had to be surprised by 2011's “Tower Heist,” his most competent and enjoyable film since “Rush Hour 2.” Alan Arkin and the return of Eddie Murphy, Actor, helped that film greatly. But meanwhile, Ratner has also found success in the producer's chair, shepherding projects such as “Catfish,” “Mirror, Mirror” and “Horrible Bosses” to fruition, and now it seems he's set his gaze on remake territory for his latest endeavor.

How meta is too meta for a movie? "I don't know, you search that line without ‑‑ you know, there aren't any rules or boundaries. You push it as far as you can go. You know when it's smug," director Martin McDonagh said in an interview about his latest black comedy "Seven Psychopaths." And there are many things you can call the upcoming film, but smug is not one of them.

It seems these days Roman Polanski has a thing for plays. Last year he brought "Carnage" to the big screen, an adaption of Yasmin Reza's acclaimed "God Of Carnage," and while he's flirted with a couple of projects since then including "D", about the Dreyfuss Affair, and a period movie about aging, his next effort is another big screen version of a stage production.

Nudity, lions, an art heist, outrageous accents and Stanley Tucci -- "Gambit" appears to have it all (depending on what your definition of "all" is), and a new, full-length trailer for the Coens-penned movie has dropped.
