When the trailer for the Bryan Singer-produced web series “H+” hit the web back in July, we were certainly impressed by the feature-like production value and novel concept of the series which certainly piqued our more sci-fi prone tendencies. "H+" is set in a future world where technology has moved beyond smart phones in the palm of our hands to pushing itself further into our lives due to a new device from a high-tech company named Hplus Nano Teoranta. Basically, It's a widget that's capable of connecting both the human brain and the Internet in the most nightmarish of ways. When a virus is unleashed on this system, killing a third of the world’s population, only bands of survivors are left in the chaotic aftermath.

Now, this is how you not only get over a breakup, but continue to build a helluva resume. Say what you will about Robert Pattinson, but he is using his "Twilight" fame to take on challenging, interesting projects. Over the past few months, he's attached himself to "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, a mystery movie about The Band, and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michod's "The Rover." But wow, we could not have seen this next move coming.

Getting a film out in the world is a tough business, but for writer/director Mark Nistico, the effort behind his feature debut "Blue Collar Boys" has paid off with some recognition. Traveling the festival circuit, the movie earned Best Picture (Micro Budget) at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, as well as Best Screenplay at the Hoboken Film Festival. And while it won't be getting a nationwide release, it may be one to pay attention to if it screens near you.

While larger than life guys like Kevin James and Seth Rogen can command leading roles in movies, when it comes to women, the playbook isn't the same. Sure, women are allowed to be funny too, but generally only if they’re deemed skinny and attractive enough first. Hell, they even cast Renee Zellweger as Bridget Jones. But the tide is changing...

For a director as fearsomely original as David Cronenberg, he's hasn't necessarily shied away from sequels, they just haven't come to fruition. He penned a remake/reboot of "The Fly" for 20th Century Fox, although the studio scrapped it, and more recently, it looked like he was actually going to make the long-talked about "Eastern Promises 2," a sequel to his 2006 gangster picture, with original writer Steven Knight again penning a script, and Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel both set to return.

Staring production way back in the fall of 2010, it has been a long time coming for Nick Cassavetes' drug drama "Yellow," but it's now headed to TIFF and a strong handful of images have arrived, though curiously, aside from Sienna Miller, not much is seen of the extended ensemble.
