Michel Gondry fans are going to have a lot to be thankful for in 2013. Not only is his lo-fi indie, "The We And The I," slated to hit theaters stateside, but his fantastical "Mood Indigo" with Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris is also on the way. But before we get to either of those, Gondry has gone ahead and dropped a holiday treat for fans.

We hope you've had a chance by now to look at Part 1 of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013, but even if you haven't, you'd be right in guessing that Bong Joon-ho's English language debut "Snowpiercer" would be on the list. The latest from the director of "The Host" and "Mother" brings together an all-star cast for a snowbound thriller, and with The Weinstein Company putting it in their pocket in November and aiming for a summer release, we're likely to see much more from the movie soon.

Welcome to 2013, and no, Hollywood hasn't changed much since 2012. Sequels and remakes still rule the roost, and horror fans will get plenty of both over the next twelve months, so let's get to it.

Keeping in line with the newly developing trend of Hollywood types calling out movies, the always talkative Quentin Tarantino has now weighed in on last summer's divisive sci-fi spectacle "Prometheus," and well, let's start with the good stuff.

This awards season, certain corners of the internet have been complaining that movies are just too darn long. "Zero Dark Thirty," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables," "Lincoln," "Amour" and "This Is 40" all broke the 2 hour mark. And some fidgety reporters who seemingly can't sit still for more than a couple hours will be disappointed that one of 2013's most eagerly awaited movies will test their bathroom break-timing.

One can't talk about Quentin Tarantino without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows, music and more that he loves. Even Quentin Tarantino himself can't talk about his own movies without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows and music that he loves. And now, many of the references he's peppered into his films to date (except "Django Unchained") have been conveniently distilled into one video for your viewing pleasure.

Here's proof that not every Black List-approved script is worth the merit or attention it receives. With movement first happening way back in the spring of 2011, we sort of forgot this movie even existed, and now nearly two years later, the first trailer has arrived. And it looks ready for the DVD bin or VOD wasteland.

Watch: Old People Sing "Let's Talk About Sex" In Trailer For 'Unfinished Song' With Terence Stamp & Gemma Arterton

Picked up very early on by The Weinstein Company and selected as the closing entry for the Toronto International Film Festival, hopes seemed to be high for "Song For Marion." A Brit dramedy about old people and singing with cantankerous Terence Stamp in the lead? It could have been a contender, we suppose, but after failing to make any impact at all, the studio is now rushing the film out into theaters in eight weeks with a brand new title.

Samuel L. Jackson Trashes Ending Of Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'

With votes due in just a couple of days, Oscar campaigning is nearly over, and the last few weeks have seen a fair bit of mudslinging. "Django Unchained" has been accused of playing fast and loose with the "n-word," Kathryn Bigelow is a torture-loving patriot, Tom Hooper is too in love with his fish-eye lens and every single movie is too long. Drag out an Oscar contender, and you can find some dirt on it. But Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" has largely gone by unscathed, except perhaps for some folks finding it too talky or stuffy. But leave it Samuel L. Jackson to throw some barbs at the movie.

David Cronenberg Clarifies Comments About 'Dark Knight' Series, Questions Comic Book Movies As Cinematic Art

Last summer, David Cronenberg caused a bit of an uproar among fanboy circles when it was reported that he said Christopher Nolan's best film was "Memento," and by comparison, his Batman films were "boring." Of course, this caused quite the heated reaction on the interwebs, but with his own "Cosmopolis" hitting home video his week, we got a chance to sit down with Cronenberg and we couldn't help but ask him about that minor controversy. And while he chalks up some of it to his words being taken out of context, he's still not convinced of the potential of the comic book movie genre.
