One of the best pleasant surprises of the initial Toronto International Film Festival announcement this morning? The surprise reveal of a new Noah Baumbach film. While Baumbach, the filmmaker behind "The Squid and the Whale," hinted to us in a recent interview that something was up his sleeve, we didn't imagine it was something we'd be seeing so soon.

Shed a tear, because the Batman franchise under the stewardship of Christopher Nolan is now over. In our most recent podcast we've discussed where another Batman movie may go, and what we hope Nolan gets up to next, but the director himself has taken a quick pause to reflect on what he has created in the three movies that have ended with "The Dark Knight Rises."

With filming starting two years ago and then going through the typically lengthy post-production cycle Terrence Malick's projects usually require, after a long wait, "To the Wonder" was announced this morning as part of the lineup for the Toronto International Film Festival, where it will make its North American premiere.

Good news, guys! Not only is the "Arrested Development" movie getting made, but it's going to get a sequel! And they're both going to win Oscars, too! That's according to Chloe Moretz anyway, who's been to the future, so she should know. And, like Zach Galifianakis, you'll also be able to have a radio inserted in your head that plays tuba music whenever you want.

Juno Temple is very much the woman of the moment. Last weekend, she cropped up in "The Dark Knight Rises" -- somewhat wasted, inarguably, but still there -- and this weekend, she gives one of the most electric performances of the year in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe." And, as if to hammer home how much in the Zeitgeist the young British actress is right now, a trailer for her next film just arrived, in the shape of a promo from Magnolia Pictures for "Jack And Diane."

Occasionally it takes a bit of time for a film to cross the pond, even if its European box office hit like Guillaume Canet's "Little White Lies." But the film finally arrives on U.S. shores later this summer, and it will certainly be helped by the raised profile of its very strong ensemble cast.

After a short, but well-deserved break between 2010’s “Unstoppable” and this past February’s “Safe House,” actor Denzel Washington is back with the force you’d expect from a man who once yelled King Kong “ain’t having sh*t on me” during a heated exchange in “Training Day.” Anyways, he has the Robert Zemeckis-directed drama “Flight” set to land this November, he’s currently shooting the action picture “2 Guns” alongside Mark Wahlberg, and we just had word he could star alongside Will Smith in “Anchorman” director Adam McKay’s remake of “Uptown Saturday Night." And now we have further info on a long-developing project with Washington attached.
