We have to admit, the premise of "Sinister" kind of put us off from the start. The story centers on a novelist who moves into a home where a family was recently murdered and discovers home video footage that might reveal exactly what happened to them. Toss in director Scott Derrickson ("The Exorcism Of Emily Rose," "The Day The Earth Stood Still") and a not so inspiring cast led by Ethan Hawke and....yawn, right? Well, guess again.

So, will Warner Bros. strike "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games" sized gold with "Beautiful Creatures," another young adult novel adaptation? Well, they might if they actually started marketing the thing, which comes out in about five months. But until a trailer drops, we'll have to do with some stills from the flick instead, which certainly don't hid the fantasy elements that are a big part of this story.

While it might seem like something that could only be dreamed by Hollywood -- the movies save hostages! -- the fact of the matter is that Ben Affleck's upcoming "Argo" is indeed based on a true story. If you haven't read it, then pull up a chair and check out Wired's riveting “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran” which served as the foundation for the movie that tells the tale of the CIA's ambitious mission to get Americans holed up in post-revolution Tehran by pretending to be in the country shooting a movie. But it seems the movie ruffled a few feathers north of the border, though the amiable Affleck has done what he can to smooth things over.

Kickstarter has been something of a game changer in the movie industry, allowing smaller scale projects or more creatively ambitious endeavors, that the studios wouldn't touch, to find an audience and the financing to make it happen. But what happens if you already have a movie finished, but you just need to get it out there? Well, the crowd-sourcing option is there as well, and the team behind "Ingenious" starring Jeremy Renner are hoping to raise enough funds to get their movie out there.

Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups' Gets New, Appropriately Vague Logline

It would seem that as Terrence Malick has increased his workflow, some of the goodwill he's had for decades has slightly eroded. The director's latest effort "To The Wonder" recently played both Venice and TIFF where it mostly received unenthusiastic notices, with many tiring of his let's-go-explore-the-wheatfields style. And it's not a surprise it's still without a U.S. distribution deal. As for us, our man in Venice dug the film and this writer saw it in Toronto and, though it's problematic, found much to digest in the movie that, to the viewer willing to look past the surface, asks a lot of big questions. In particular, how we can share or experience love in a world abandoned by God. Weighty stuff. But anyway, Malick is already on to his next two films, and a very small morsel of info concerning "Knight Of Cups" has emerged.

While everyone else dishes out movies based on true events, literary classics and aim for that awards season boullion, RZA will instead be serving up blood and blades in equal doses with this directorial debut "The Man With The Iron Fists." There will be few movies this fall offering up such unabashed, popcorn-ready entertainment, but a kung fu flick starring the rapper, Lucy Liu and Russell Crowe? Yeah, we're in.
