After receiving rave reviews for his last two features, “The Beat That My Heart Skipped” and “A Prophet,” Jacques Audiard’s latest film “Rust & Bone” is only a couple of months away from release in the U.K. (November 2nd) and a limited run in the U.S. (November 16th). Sony Pictures Classics is handling the domestic distribution and they’ll likely be hoping that the film will gain enough buzz to bring it some Oscar glory.

Terrence Malick's recent burst of creative energy is sort of staggering. After completing just four films in forty-two years, he has dropped two films in two years (2011's "The Tree of Life" and 2012's "To the Wonder"), with "Knight of Cups" wrapping up, "Lawless" about to begin and an ambitious documentary that is still being worked on. Screen Daily talked to Malick's producers, Sarah Green and Nicolas Gonda, about his recent endeavors (including "To the Wonder," which just premiered in Venice – our man on the scene loved it) and what's going on with the movie Malick is currently tinkering with (including when we can expect that documentary).

With many budgets routinely crossing the $150 million threshold, studios keep a close eye on their tentpoles, making sure the films hit that four-quadrant sweet spot with nothing, not a blemish, to stop them. Every once in awhile, however, certain details are overlooked and the detail in the case of Marvel’s blockbuster team-up film “The Avengers” will block the release of the Blu-ray box set of Phase One of their cinematic universe.

Hot off his collaboration with Spike Lee in "Red Hook Summer," Nate Parker is in negotiations to star in Lee's remake of South Korean favorite, "Oldboy." Parker would play a doctor who works with Elizabeth Olsen's character. If the deal goes through, Parker would join a cast that already includes Olsen, Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Watch: New Clip From 'Dredd' Introduces Us To Drug-Filled Housing Project Peach Trees

One of the more admirable aspects of "Dredd," the 3D sci-fi actioner set to be released at the end of the month (after it hits Midnight Madness at TIFF later this week) is how contained it is. It might be a dystopian extravaganza, but the story takes place in just one building – a huge, derelict housing project with the idyllic moniker of Peach Trees. When several murders occur in Peach Trees, the Judges (futuristic investigators given the power of judge, jury and executioner) are sent in. And in a new clip from Digital Spy (courtesy of Hey U Guys), we get to see the Judges (Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby) enter Peach Trees. It's probably the calmest moment in the whole movie.

'Kill List' Director Ben Wheatley's Next Is Psychedelic Civil War Movie 'A Field In England,' Starts Shooting Next Month

If there's one thing that "Kill List," the outstanding domestic drama/dark comedy/gangster thriller/occult horror movie from earlier this year, taught us, it's that writer/director Ben Wheatley is beyond fearless. He boldly mixes genres and styles and comes up with something that is wholly unique and seemingly effortless. And this streak will continue, as it's just been announced that his next film will be a psychedelic U.K.-set Civil War movie called "A Field in England." It will begin shooting next month and will undoubtedly be really, really weird.

Tackling an adaptation of a 150-year-old Charles Dickens novel, especially one that has already been brought to the screen at least a dozen times in various forms, is a daunting task indeed. What do you change? What do you freshen up? Well, if you're Mike Newell, who directed a new adaptation, the answer to those last two questions (at least based on this new clip) is "very little." The brief clip of the BBC co-production, shows Jeremy Irvine as Pip and Ralph Fiennes as the mysterious Magwitch, in what appears to be their first meeting since encountering each other many years before and it is, more or less, exactly what you'd expect.

Producer Jon Landau Says 'Avatar 4' Won't Be Part Of Back-To-Back Sequel Shoot

What, exactly, is going on with James Cameron's "Avatar" sequels remains something of a mystery. Since the movie broke box office records in late 2009 (and reintroduced 3D in new and vital ways that few filmmakers have carried forward), it was largely assumed that there would be follow-up films and later it was confirmed that Fox would produce and release not one but two sequels, to be shot-back-to-back, tentatively scheduled for December 2014 and December 2015. But this summer Cameron made mention to the New York Times that "I'm making 'Avatar 2,' 'Avatar 3,' maybe 'Avatar 4.'" Well, not so fast. "Avatar" producer Jon Landau has gone on record as saying that Cameron's plan for a fourth movie might have been a little premature.
