Well, not everything that hits the festival circuit is going to be a winner, and some may have a steeper hill to climb to get some positive attention. Judging by the first trailer for "Inescapable," that may be the case for this film. Playing like an arthouse/indie "Taken," the first glimpse and handful of promo pics certainly suggest a movie that owes a bit of a nod to Liam Neeson.

You have to hand it to David Ayer, he has found his niche and he’s working it hard. From “Training Day” to films like “The Fast And The Furious,” “Harsh Times” and “Street Kings” he’s worked steadily in the urban crime genre, mostly following cops with less than ethical methods. A new red band trailer has dropped, showing his latest entry into the genre, the Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña-starring “End of Watch.”

....and the clock keeps ticking. With an October 10th deadline looming before Fox loses the rights to "Daredevil," it seems their search to find a director may not be over. In July, previously attached helmer David Slade exited the picture, and just over a week ago, word hit that Fox was reaching out a hand to Joe Carnahan to take over. Well, that meeting took place, and apparently it did not go well.

The seemingly forever-developing Nina Simone biopic is still moving, though it has been quite a while since there was been any substantial news. Way back in 2010, Mary J. Blige signed on for the lead with David Oyelowo to co-star, but very little happened since, and as with most projects involving musicians and estates, we figured various entanglements were holding it up. Well, whatever has been going on, it seems there is some movement.

While most talk these days around Olga Kurylenko might center around her roles on Starz's "Magic City" and upcoming films like Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder," "Seven Psychopaths" and "Oblivion" with Tom Cruise, it might be easy to forget that way back in 2010 work started on $100 million dollar, 3D production "Empires of the Deep." A handful of set photos have been knocking around for a while, but what looks to be the first official image has now emerged.

Well, we're just past the midway point of 2012, and the troubled Mel Gibson is dogged by controversy. Earlier this year he got into a public feud with Joe Eszterhas, who went public with another recording of Gibson blowing his top, with the screenwriter asserting that he was still up to his anti-Semitic ways, while Gibson claimed he was furious because Eszterhas had done little work on the Maccabees script. Nevertheless, Gibson has dusted himself and continues to press forward, bagging the villain role in Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" (see an on set report right here), and he's keeping his eye on the future.

"There’s no melodrama here, just a moving and totally engrossing story of two men in love," is how our man on the ground at Sundance described "Keep The Lights On." And for the rest of us who have yet to catch up with the movie, those words seem to be spot on when viewing the trailer for the upcoming film.

Even as he gears up "The Wolf of Wall Street," the ever-busy Martin Scorese is keeping the fires burning on a handful of projects, including his long-developing biopic "Sinatra." In the spring of 2011, powerhouse producer Scott Rudin ("The Social Network," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") decided to throw his weight behind the endeavor, with plans to find a new writer to draft a script after Phil Alden Robinson's (”Field of Dreams,” “Sneakers”) take got the ball rolling. And back in April, Scorsese revealed he was taking some meetings, and now it seems he's found his man.

We always sort of figured "Bill & Ted's 3" would be like "Ghostbusters 3," something people like to talk about but that would never actually happen. And while Dan Aykroyd keeps dreaming about his movie coming together, fans of the Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter franchise got a surprise boost of good news last week when it was revealed that Dean Parisot ("Galaxy Quest," "Red 2") was now attached to direct. And more word on the project today as a few more details have dropped about what the story may entail.
