In case you forgot, "Zero Dark Thirty" isn't the only topical drama hitting theaters this month. Right before everyone gets wasted on New Year's Eve, "Promised Land" will hit theaters, a drama set against the backdrop of a tumbling economy, and the promise of financial gains through the controversial method of extracting natural gas known as fracking. It will be the last awards season player to hit theaters, but before it comes out near you, seven clips have arrived to give you a taste.

So, this is why we love Michelle Williams. While the three-time Oscar nominated actress could easily sit back and ride the studio driven tentpole gravy train (and yes, she's starring in next year's "Oz The Great And Powerful," but girl's gotta eat), more than often than not, she chooses interesting stories and filmmakers, with characters that are often compelling and complex. And this is true for what may be on one of her upcoming efforts.

While "Zero Dark Thirty" seems to be the movie to beat at the moment, another picture is slowly gaining momentum. The punishing yet beautiful "Amour" is not only poised to be a major player in the Foreign Language category at the Oscars, but many think it could sneak into the Best Picture race as well. And indeed, Time magazine seems to be in love in with it.

After the comprehensive onslaught of attributed projects for which his name lies above the title, it then remains a rare and welcome sight to see Judd Apatow return for his fourth directorial effort, “This is 40.” Last seen in 2009 with “Funny People,” Apatow has now expanded his cinematic universe with his latest film to focus on Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), two supporting characters from “Knocked Up” who return saddled with a host of unexplored issues.

There is still a lot more to come in 2013, but so far the prize for best poster goes to Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects." The latest one sheet for the psychological thriller is a pretty solid little piece of work that gets the point across without resorting to putting a bunch of big heads in a pill bottle (or something equally obvious and terrible). No surprise then it comes from Neil Kellerhouse, the man behind memorable one sheets for "The Social Network," "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," "Haywire," and many, many more.

"Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't in any way use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience," executive producer Christopher Nolan recently told us. "Zack [Snyder] has built on that and I think it's incredible what he's putting together." And after seeing this? We totally agree.

Considering composer Clint Mansell has worked with Darren Aronofsky on all of the director's films to date, it's not a big shock that they will be working together once again. But still, it's nice to get some confirmation, and indeed, during a masterclass at the Marrakech Film Festival (you can read all the highlights right here) Aronofsky confirmed that Mansell will be back for his Bible epic "Noah." But perhaps most revealing is Aronofsky's description of their working relationship.

Watch: Jason Schwartzman Reteams With Roman Coppola For Short Film 'Die Again, Undead One'

Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola are family (they're cousins), so they are never more than a phone call away. But even if they weren't related, we imagine they would have found each other anyway. The duo have forged a relationship that has seen them work together in many capacities -- co-writers, actor/director and more -- and they're clearly on the save wavelength. So, when Coppola made his debut feature, "CQ," it's not a shock that he called Schwartzman for a role. When over a decade later he made his sophomore effort, "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III," he called Schwartzman again. And now, for the short film "Die Again, Undead One," the pair are once again back together.

One of the most predictably oversubscribed events at the Marrakech International Film Festival this year was Darren Aronofsky’s masterclass. Lasting nearly two hours, however, and delivering a retrospective spin through the five feature films that make up his back catalog, as well as a few nuggets about the forthcoming “Noah,” it actually most caught fire when the proceedings were opened up to the audience. In this section, Aronsofky was at his most forthcoming and engaged, happy to share his expertise with the many film students who got questions in, and passionate in his encouragement of young local filmmakers.
