In 2009, Marcus Dunstan -- the writer behind "Saw IV," "Saw V," "Saw VI," "Saw 3D," "Piranha 3DD" and more -- put himself behind the camera and directed his debut feature, "The Collector." A nasty little piece of horror, it found the filmmaker establishing a voice of his own. Now he's back three years later with the sequel, "The Collection," and as it gets ready to hit theaters next week, we've got an exclusive featurette that takes you behind-the-scenes.

Back in 2006, "Ice Age" director Chris Wedge announced that his next directorial effort would be "Leaf Men," based on the William Joyce children's book "The Life Men and the Brave Good Bugs." (Joyce also conceived and co-produced this week's big animated extravaganza, "Rise of the Guardians.") Fox, the company that owns Blue Sky Studios, the animation studio that Wedge co-founded and runs out of a Greenwich, Connecticut campus, was unimpressed with his proposal and Wedge very nearly packed his bags, bringing the project to Pixar and his old chum John Lasseter (they had worked together on "TRON"). In 2009, Fox agreed to give "Leaf Men" the greenlight and now, in 2012, we're finally seeing the final, long-form trailer, now titled "Epic." If nothing else it looks like it lives up to its new name.

If you don't know the story of the West Memphis Three, a trio of men who were wrongly convicted of murdering three young children, back when the defendants were still teenagers, it's one of the most compelling true crime tales in recent memory. And thankfully, documentarians Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky have been there for the whole ordeal, completing three riveting documentaries on the subject called "Paradise Lost," the last of which, "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory," captured the sort-of happy ending for the three convicts. The movies have just been compiled into a deluxe DVD box set which hit stores earlier this month, and now we can bring you an exclusive clip from the set.

If Jane Levy's face up there is anything to go by, the Sam Raimi produced remake of his own 1981 cult hit "Evil Dead" will terrify you. In fact, they're pretty much promising it.

Still without a proper U.S. release date (Annapurna Pictures has the rights, but hasn't paired with a distributor yet), we're taking what we can get from Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmasters," even if it means watching a behind-the-scenes documentary on the film without any subtitles. But thankfully, someone has come to the rescue and at least given us a better understanding of the full length trailer.

2012 has been pretty good to Frank Ocean. The Odd Future member, rapper and singer bravely came out online, dropped one of the best albums of the year with channelOrange, and became so popular that just last week his tunes were used to soundtrack an episode of "Gossip Girl." Really. Now, if all goes according to plan, he'll have one last hurrah before the year is out.

Now that Sacha Gervasi has "Hitchcock" ready for theaters this week, what will the director do next? "The Jennifer Aniston-Russell Crowe project," he teased when talking to The Playlist this weekend. "The Jennifer Aniston-Love Hewitt/Brad Pitt project. It's all in claymation. Is that weird? And it's underwater."

In a moment, it seemed to be over. When news emerged last year that the U.S. government had undertaken a daring, clandestine mission that resulted in the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the revelation came as a surprise. Nearly a decade after the horrific attacks on 9/11, the nation was a bit closer to closure. But how was Bin Laden found? How did the search continue through two different administrations in the White House? Well, strap in...

Marvel's Delayed Phase One Box Coming In 2013 With Phase Two Tease & More Deleted Scenes Including 'Thor' Alternate Ending

Back in September, Marvel was getting ready to drop an elaborate box set, including all the Phase One films, housed in a fancy briefcase featuring a replica of the Tesseract (see above). But there was a small problem. The design of the briefcase was copyrighted by a German luggage company and the paperwork and rights hadn't been cleared by the comic company for use in this kind of packaging. The result was a delay on the set, and lots of unhappy faces this Christmas. But, there is a silver lining -- the set is now back on track and will feature even more for fans.
