Plucked from obscurity by the Coen Brothers for "True Grit," Hailee Steinfeld turned in a commanding performance that earned her an Oscar nomination, and since then her career has experienced a rocket's ascent. The actress has been busy lining up movie after movie, taking on a diverse array of projects: the music world drama "Can A Song Save Your Life?"; Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet"; literary adaptation "Hateship, Friendship"; and sci-fi blockbuster "Ender's Game." And now, for better or worse, she's getting a taste of McG.

A bounty of "Django Unchained" material was unveiled last night. Not only did a new trailer arrive, but the soundtrack details for the movie debuted as well. And as folks already know, Quentin Tarantino isn't shy about referencing his influences, and his films tend to be gateways to discover all kinds of genre fare. And indeed, the soundtrack lifts music from a number of films, so we thought it might be fun to provide a quick guide to the pictures Tarantino borrowed from for "Django Unchained." So let's get to it...

A few years ago, boardgame properties were all the rage, and now self-published e-books are the new subjects of bidding wars. Earlier this summer, Fox scooped up the rights to Hugh Howey’s self-published and post-apocalyptic “Wool” with Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian -- under their respective production companies -- teaming up to shepherd the film into production. Now it looks like they have a director in the form of “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” helmer J. Blakeson.

Many horror films have featured women in peril, but with Katie Aselton at the helm of "Black Rock," the meat-and-potatoes outsiders-vs.-locals thriller -- in the vein of films like “Deliverance” -- the picture is far more empowering and gives the female leads greater substance than other films of its ilk tend to do. Now, the first trailer for the Sundance film has landed online.

After what seemed like a long period in the weeds following "Green Zone" and the collapse of 'Bourne 4,' Paul Greengrass looks poised for a comeback. Next fall brings his Tom Hanks-starring hostage drama "Captain Phillips" to the big screen, and just a couple of weeks ago it was reported that his Martin Luther King Jr. film is back on, with the wheels turning to make it his next effort. And now, he's got another movie percolating.
