It has been two years since Derek Cianfrance emerged with his raw and intimate "Blue Valentine," and coming into TIFF with his latest effort, the filmmaker presented a movie that was bigger in every way possible. Running well over two hours with cast including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Dane DeHaan, Ben Mendelsohn and more, "The Place Beyond the Pines" tells a tale that spans generations and makes great use of its New York State setting. To say that we loved it would be an understatement (read our review here), but it seems the director isn't done with long form storytelling just yet.

With the soothing strains of Mark Lanegan's "The Beast In Me" playing, the trailer for "Texas Chainsaw 3D" opens with a young woman in sexy lingerie just casually changing her clothes in the backseat of a van. Well, you gotta hand it to the marketing gurus at Millenium Entertainment -- they sure know who to grab the eyeballs of anyone who couldn't care less about another entry into this franchise.

So, Jessica Chastain dyeing her dazzing red locks black? Yeah, we're gonna have to get used to that, but it's all part of the goth look she's put together for the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror "Mama." And the first trailer is here to send a tingle up your spine.

Well, this seems kind of....crass? Given the sensitive nature of the geopolitical sphere at the moment, turning an already potentially controverisal movie into a multiplayer, virtually high-fiving your bros online video game seems a bit flippant. But, given the limited tie-in opportunities for Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty," we suppose Universal had to take what they could get.

If "The Expendables 2" didn't meet your fill of Old Guys Doing Things, then let us recycle an old joke and introduce you to the Depends-ables (GET IT?). Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin are up to no good in the first trailer for "Stand Up Guys," which once again finds some elderly dudes doing wacky stuff.

As we head into the tail end of September, summer light is fading and the temperature is beginning to dip. And as we'll soon be pulling jackets out of the closet and putting flip flops away until year, one movie is coming along that embraces the wintry season to tell a taut little tale.

While we all not-so-anxiously await James Cameron to make his "Avatar" sequels that are becoming less anticipated with each passing moment, the director continues to a seemingly never ending press run. Whether it's chatting about "Titanic" or whatever latest adventure or cause he's taking on, it's never too long before another interview the king of the world director surfaces. But thankfully, his latest little soundbyte has nothing to do with Pandora, but instead about another film helmed by his pal Steven Spielberg.

Starring John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, Rosemarie DeWitt and an excellent supporting cast that features Dylan McDermott, Justin Kirk, and one-to-watch up-and-comers like India Ennenga, Rhys Wakefield and Jane Levy, "Nobody Walks" is one of our favorite indie dramas of the fall. The third feature-length effort from Ry Russo-Young (2009's celebrated indie "You Wont Miss Me"), "Nobody Walks" is also co-written by one of Young's high school pals, one Lena Dunham, the star and creator of HBO's "Girls."

Well, duh. The rumor itself was built on shaky ground, and given the actor's choosiness and selectiveness over roles and directors he'll take on, it's probably no shock that Viggo Mortensen won't be in "Thor: The Dark World." Tenuous-to-begin with reports (or leaps of logic) had linked him to the role of Dr. Strange, and while the character itself isn't ruled out, Mortensen won't playing along in the sequel, and it's not like Marvel were even aware the dude was still taking scripts.

Who’s your favorite Paul Anderson? Well, chances are that it’s probably not the one we’re about to discuss here, but surely by now you’re Paul Thomas Anderson-ed out, aren’t you? Let’s give Paul William Scott Anderson his time to shine. The fifth (and presumed penultimate) installment in the “Resident Evil” franchise hits theaters tomorrow, and it’s the third that Anderson has helmed. If he does end his involvement with the series after the sixth entry, then he may just be on the lookout for another franchise that will keep paying the bills.
