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.

New Documents Give Details Of Kathryn Bigelow & Mark Boal's Not-So-Nefarious Access To CIA Files For 'Zero Dark Thirty'

“There's no political agenda in the film. Full stop. Period.” As much as screenwriter Mark Boal may wish his words would guide public knowledge about the Kathryn Bigelow-directed film, “Zero Dark Thirty” -- which details the U.S. government's raid on Osama bin Laden as depicted through Boal's script -- the truth of its subject matter and an election year simply makes that impossible. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has been at the forefront of proving Boal's statement wrong, but after requests made in January were finally approved for CIA and Department of Defense documents detailing their involvement to be released, the results finally paint a picture more of minor fandom than political maneuvering.

In October, Lionsgate will release Scott Derickson's low-budget shocker, "Sinister," a super fun and occasionally very scary horror film starring Ethan Hawke as a true crime author desperate to recapture the fame he experienced as a young writer. So desperate, in fact, that he moves his entire family into a house where a savage murder spree recently took place, where a family, much like his own, was brutally killed. From there things get considerably spookier, with Hawke uncovering a malevolent evil lurking in a series of film canisters in the house's attic. Today we get to exclusively debut a pair of spooky new stills from the movie, ones that might just haunt your dreams.

Years ago, this writer was shown "Wolves of Wall Street," a werewolf movie where no one turned into a werewolf, and there was a scene where one werewolf, still in human form, peed on another man's leg to show dominance and mark his territory. While there's probably no correlation between director Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Wolves of Wall Street" outside of a similar name, Leonardo DiCaprio is finally back in his marked territory of working with Scorsese and set photos of the production have already arrived online.

There were quite a few questions left unanswered in this summer's "Prometheus," but what was clearly not in question was Charlize Theron's willingness to try different projects in a variety of genres. Following a few years off, Theron's performances in "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Young Adult" proved that the actress can still be as fearless as her gutsy, Oscar-winning turn in "Monster." "Young Adult" also saw Theron do double duty as a producer and it seems that the actress isn't ready to stop producing her own projects, with plans in place to team up with producer Basil Iwanyk ("The Town," "The Expendables 2") for a movie about the late war journalist Marie Colvin.
