After a string of films that seemed to challenge Michael Haneke in terms of unrelenting bleakness, it's then perhaps a slight shock to hear director Lukas Moodyson ("Lilya-4-Ever," "A Hole In My Heart") contemplating brighter pastures for his next film. However, earlier this year he claimed just that with a “feel good” adaptation of his wife Coco's graphic novel, "Never Goodnight," and now the project, along with two other similarly promising efforts, have found their next step toward production.

As the man behind such films as "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker" and "Malena," there was an era when Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore was a familiar name at the arthouse. However, it has been a while since he's had a movie arrive stateside with quite the same attention as those pics, but "The Best Offer" could change that.

In case Eugene Jarecki's recent documentary "The House I Live In" didn't get the message across: the war on drugs isn't working and is penalizing people with dranconian laws that do nothing to stop the trafficking and use of narcotics. But the war on drugs hasn't met the likes of Dwayne Johnson.

"Rise of the Guardians," the new DreamWorks Animation feature conceived by famed children's book author William Joyce, features, at its core, such an ingenious concept that it's hard to believe nobody's ever thought of it before. The plot concerns a kind of 'Avengers'-style super-team made up of beloved childhood characters – Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), the Sandman (he doesn't speak but communicates through ghostly dreams), and the newest, most reluctant member of the team, Jack Frost (Chris Pine), who must band together to stop the spooky boogeyman Pitch (Jude Law) from annihilating childhood innocence in a more profoundly evil way than the Internet already has.
