With Rian Johnson stirring up time travel, hitmen and god knows what else in his upcoming, highly ambitious "Looper," it will take a deft hand to not only balance all the elements at play, but also provide something fresh and original. But so far, it looks the man who changed with the game with film noir in "Brick" and twisted the con artist in "The Brothers Bloom" is doing just that, and this first clip from the movie is particularly compelling.

Wacky cornrows aren't the only things James Franco has in Harmony Korine's zany "Spring Breakers." In the latest clip from the film, he brags about the wild assortment of wares his drug-slinging dealer has in his pretty pimped out apartment/house/condo whatever.

Sony has announced that they will be bringing “Metal Gear Solid,” the immensely popular video game franchise, to the big screen, courtesy of “Spider-Man” producer Avi Arad. The announcement was made at the Metal Gear Anniversary event in Tokyo (via /Film). “Metal Gear Solid” director (and we do mean director – the latter games contained hours of purely cinematic cut scenes) Hideo Kojima was joined onstage by Arad to make the announcement. A “Metal Gear Solid” movie has been in the works for years, with the last notable attempt being in 2008 with producer and former New Line exec Michael De Luca. If anybody can bring “Metal Gear Solid” to the big screen, it’s Arad.

In a few weeks, “Dredd” (in 3D!) will be released in the United States (and even sooner in England). The movie got a rousing response at Comic-Con this summer and this writer politely disagrees with our review out of San Diego. It’s a dark, beautifully photographed (by frequent Lars von Trier and Danny Boyle collaborator Anthony Dod Mantle), outrageously violent sci-fi treat that will surprise a lot of people. And of course, anytime a comic book-based movie is worth its salt, talk inevitably turns to a sequel. And writer/producer Alex Garland has stepped up to field questions, hype the movie and discuss where further adventures of “Dredd” may go.

The “Prometheus” Blu-ray is on its way and, despite many people being left hugely disappointed by Ridley Scott’s latest, there still seems to be a fair bit of excitement surrounding the home release. Maybe it’s because of what Ridley Scott has been able to transform his films into in the past when given a second crack at the whip, or maybe it’s in the wild hope that there may be enough amongst the special features to make sense of the original film. Perhaps it’s just to see some more of the stunning visuals, who knows?

One film we had hoped would make an appearance on the fall festival slate this year was Roman Coppola's first film in over a decade, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." And while that hasn't happened, we suppose the next best thing has come along -- the first official images from the '70s-set comedy.
