If the name Walter Hill conjures up at a moment's notice the thrills of “The Driver,” “Streets of Fire,” or “The Warriors,” then it's probably least damaging for your memories to witness the director's work today. After a break from doing TV work on “Deadwood” and the mini-series “Broken Trail,” he came roaring back with the Sly Stallone actioner “Bullet to the Head,” whose trailer promises something only vaguely resembling a coherent film. And now, after hints toward him remaking a demented classic occurred recently, it appears the film has now found the means to become a reality.

"Warner Bros. or Criterion is putting out a new version of 'Badlands' fairly soon," Terrence Malick's longtime editor Billy Weber said last fall, and now almost a full year later, it looks like the company with the wacky C will be giving the auteur's debut film the full treatment.

Ben Affleck's third feature-length effort "Argo" is like three movies in one. It's a thriller, a political drama, and even a Hollywood satire. The fact that it seamlessly mixes in the latter -- the comedy and near-absurdity of a fake Hollywood production -- with the grave and somber do-or-die drama of American citizens trapped in Iran during the late 1970s Islamic revolution, is a testament to just how good of a director Affleck has become. We raved about the film in Telluride. It's gripping, entertaining and funny, a slam dunk of a crowd-pleaser and yet a smart and engaging thriller in the classic '70s mold (see "All The President's Men," "Three Days Of the Condor" and the like; yes, it's very much in the spirit of that filmmaking). Here's the synopsis.

Talk about making an entrance. Covered in blood and vomit, you might think that this is as bad as it's going to get for Marty, but in "Seven Psychopaths," there isn't one outrageous moment in the movie that director Martin McDonagh doesn't match with something that takes it just a little bit further.

After a whirlwind decade for Hilary Swank, which included winning Oscars for lead roles in both “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” things have slowed down recently for the actress – with only a couple films like 2010’s “Conviction” and a bit role in “New Years Eve” standing out recently. But Swank seems to be making her way back to the screen in a big way, with a Phillip Noyce-helmed HBO TV movie entitled “Mary & Martha” in the pipeline, a part alongside Meryl Streep in Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman," and now she’s lining up yet another feature.

While Shawn Levy considered directing it for a while, it appears that Levy moving off the project and directing "The Internship" instead, and Fox hiring "Lucky Number Slevin" helmer Paul McGuigan to direct, has put a new surge of electricity back into the studio's brewing "Frankenstein." And that juice could bring with it a major franchise star to take the lead role.
