Just as worried filmgoers hesitantly stepped into “The Grey” this past January with fears of “Taken” with wolves, only then for the film to exceed all expectations as one of the most pleasant surprises of the year, we can only hope something similar will befall Sylvester Stallone’s latest actioner “Bullet to the Head.” With each look at the Walter Hill-directed film thus far wafting a perfectly generic tone of DTV fare, the prospect seems unlikely, but now a third trailer has been released to try and endear audiences to the newest from the "48 Hrs" helmer.

It’s pretty much a given these days that anybody with (real or imagined) clout in Hollywood tends to use it to voice their political opinions -- just google “celebrity presidential endorsements” -- but few actually use their talents to ensure their message spreads to the widest possible audience. Enter geek hero Joss Whedon.

They're not Korea or Iran or anything, but there's been some fairly impressive films coming out of Argentina in the last few years. The nation's always had a strong film culture (they're the only Latin American country to have won the Foreign Language Oscar, and have done so twice), but in the first decade of the 21st century, films like "Nine Queens," "The Aura," "Son Of The Bride" and, most of all, "The Secret In Their Eyes," have all made serious impressions over the last few years. And one of the most exciting talents the country has right now is director Pablo Trapero.

With "Amour" earning Michael Haneke his second Palme d'Or this spring at Cannes where it received rave reviews and was selected by Austria as their official Oscar entry, there is no doubt the director's latest is in the awards season hunt. But will voters match critics in their appreciation for this very tough, yet tender look at death and the fortitude it takes to see someone slip away?

While we patiently await Alejandro González Iñárritu to get moving on his next feature -- and he's got options with "The Revenant" and "The Flim-Flam Man" both brewing -- he's taken a quick time out to go experimental on us.

As we recently wrote, Gerard Butler could probably use a new agent by this point or maybe just a better sense of material. "Chasing Mavericks" opens this weekend with zero buzz, and it will likely be just as quickly forgotten as "Machine Gun Preacher" and probably the upcoming "Playing For Keeps." But the actor will change things up and kick off the New Year as....a leprechaun.

Though "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" have little in common except unnecessarily long movie titles, they are both franchises that are beginning and ending, respectively, this fall. And they both are trying to catch you at home as you try and find a "Seinfeld" re-run to tell you they are coming to theaters.

There are many reasons to already be stoked for uh, "Stoker," but principally among them: director Park Chan-wook, Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and a score by Clint Mansell, all wrapped up in a promisingly Hitchcock-ian thriller. And now we have another bit of news that may sustain your excitement until the film is released next spring.

It seems Caleb Landry Jones has taken a shine to Canadian auteurs. The actor (known to most as Banshee from "X-Men: First Class") recently teamed with Brandon Cronenberg for his uneven, but still undeniably freaky and fun "Antiviral." And now he's joined up with a three-time Cannes attendee and rising young talent Xavier Dolan for his next effort.
