This week marks the release of “The Bourne Legacy,” which finally allows writer/director Tony Gilroy to demonstrate his unique take on the franchise after hanging back in the writer's seat for three films. Universal are just as eager to present the film as a different beast too, seeing as they've released a veritable smorgasbord of promotional material ranging from insight into the film's stunts to the music.

This fall will see director Joe Wright seemingly return to the comfort zone of lit adaptations with Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," which reunites him with his "Atonement" star Keira Knightley in the titular role. Another period drama you ask? Not quite. Wright has shot most of the picture on a single soundstage with interlocking sets built at London's Shepperton Studios with a strong British cast that sees Knightley surrounded by names like Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson and Holliday Grainger.

While its Cannes premiere more or less defined John Hillcoat's Prohibition-era bootlegging drama "Lawless" as bonafide genre material and nothing more (doesn't bother us, really), it take a better man than this writer to not be excited by the return of the Aussie filmmaker with a phenomenal cast which includes Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman and Mia Wasikowska, among others.

Yes, Bond is back, and judging by the brand new trailer unveiled last week, it's going to be a mix of the classic elements we've come to adore from the franchise -- gadgets, guns and girls -- along with the gritty realism that has come to define the Daniel Craig era films. And with "Skyfall" set to cap off the 50th anniversary of the Bond business, the promo material for the movie keeps coming, with a few more pics emerging over the weekend.

The biggest question mark of the year has to be the highly ambitious, Tom Tykwer and Lana and Andy Wachowski-helmed epic adaptation of David Mitchell’s acclaimed and dense best-seller, “Cloud Atlas.” After a long period of silence and secrecy that’s usually reserved for Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams pictures, the past couple of weeks has seen an abundance of information regarding the project surface, including an impressive six-minute trailer. And now the official website has unveiled a sort-of-timeline featuring the sprawling cast of characters.
