Elevated into critical acclaim with the modest yet affecting short “Windowbreaker,” which in turn led to his 2009 Sundance feature “Children of Invention,” writer/director Tze Chun's career has grown more promising with every new development. The filmmaker's next effort looks to be his most accomplished yet in terms of genre and the caliber of talent involved.

The "Star Wars" rumor mill keeps ticking along, and while we still don't know who's directing that first new movie, Episode VII, it seems that Disney and new Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy are already start to think of the future. After all, they allegedly have outlines for a new trilogy of films from George Lucas, which has been expanded into treatments by "Toy Story 3" writer Michael Arndt, who's also penning Episode VII. And while that film is still at least three years away, it looks like we might have writers for further installments, and at least one of them will make fans very, very happy.

It was just over a decade ago when Steven Spielberg dropped "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" into theaters to a very mixed response. The picture was more famously known as a project Stanley Kubrick was shepherding for years (he was waiting for technology to be able to realistically create David -- eventually played by Haley Joel Osment -- believing no child actor could do it), with Spielberg seeing it into production and completion after the death of his filmmaker and friend. And it seems the movie could never quite shake off speculation of what Kubrick would have done versus what Spielberg actually made.  But perhaps the biggest point of contention came with the ending, which fast fowards the story 2000 years, putting a happier sheen on what would have been a darker conclusion.

In 2009, Marcus Dunstan -- the writer behind "Saw IV," "Saw V," "Saw VI," "Saw 3D," "Piranha 3DD" and more -- put himself behind the camera and directed his debut feature, "The Collector." A nasty little piece of horror, it found the filmmaker establishing a voice of his own. Now he's back three years later with the sequel, "The Collection," and as it gets ready to hit theaters next week, we've got an exclusive featurette that takes you behind-the-scenes.

Back in 2006, "Ice Age" director Chris Wedge announced that his next directorial effort would be "Leaf Men," based on the William Joyce children's book "The Life Men and the Brave Good Bugs." (Joyce also conceived and co-produced this week's big animated extravaganza, "Rise of the Guardians.") Fox, the company that owns Blue Sky Studios, the animation studio that Wedge co-founded and runs out of a Greenwich, Connecticut campus, was unimpressed with his proposal and Wedge very nearly packed his bags, bringing the project to Pixar and his old chum John Lasseter (they had worked together on "TRON"). In 2009, Fox agreed to give "Leaf Men" the greenlight and now, in 2012, we're finally seeing the final, long-form trailer, now titled "Epic." If nothing else it looks like it lives up to its new name.

If you don't know the story of the West Memphis Three, a trio of men who were wrongly convicted of murdering three young children, back when the defendants were still teenagers, it's one of the most compelling true crime tales in recent memory. And thankfully, documentarians Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky have been there for the whole ordeal, completing three riveting documentaries on the subject called "Paradise Lost," the last of which, "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory," captured the sort-of happy ending for the three convicts. The movies have just been compiled into a deluxe DVD box set which hit stores earlier this month, and now we can bring you an exclusive clip from the set.
