“Mother’s Day” - wasn’t that a horror film that came out recently starring Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King? You know, it was a remake of that '80s video nasty which featured graphic scenes of rape, violence and murder. What’s that...this is a different “Mother’s Day”...a drama that tells a series of loosely interconnected stories over the course of a day when greeting cards are exchanged. Oh, great.

Well, this is a curious bit of marketing from The Weinstein Company for John Hillcoat's "Lawless." Although, considering the wonky campaign for "The Road," this is becoming par for the course for Hillcoat's films.

A lesbian werewolf story featuring animated sequences by the legendary Brothers Quay and starring Juno Temple, Riley Keough and pop superstar Kylie Minogue? The ingredients are there for something either truly special or utterly disastrous. And while our review from the Tribeca Film Festival leans toward the latter, there's no doubt that the subject matter and cast should earn "Jack and Diane" some attention when it rolls out.

Oh, so this is still happening then. "300: Battle of Artemisia" seems to have been brewing for a while now, but without the trigger really being pulled. The last we heard on this movie was back in March, but with a release date looming for late next summer, we suppose Warner Bros. are finally starting to get this thing rolling in earnest.

The success of the “Resident Evil” franchise should come as a surprise to no one. When Paul W.S. Anderson’s first film arrived in 2002 it already had its winning formula in place, which essentially boils down to Milla Jovovich in a tight outfit brandishing weapons against a horde of mindless zombie/thingies/cannon fodder in slow motion. Over the series more CGI was used, with the quality somehow never increasing, and 3D was added. This September sees the release of the fifth film, “Resident Evil: Retribution,” and we have nine new images from the film.

One of the stranger movie tie-in promotional items that, for some reason, continues to this day, is the novelization of the movie. Granted, when we were kids, movie obsession led us to read the book version of a film at one time or another, but do enough people care these days to make the investment in writing and publishing these efforts worth it? They must be, because the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence low-budget thriller "House at the End of the Street" is getting literary.

Producer Bryan Singer is already bringing his "H+" sci-fi series to the web in August, but it was back in January we told you actor Tom Hanks would be producing an animated web series, "Electric City," and things looks to be shaping up quite nicely.

As studios, distributors, and filmmakers in general continue to look for refreshing new ways to have their work seen by as wide an audience as possible -- whether it be on television, digital shorts, etc. -- one of those potentially promising outlets seems to be the web series format. While we can't say that a particularly successful title sticks out to us at the moment (besides maybe the hilarious "Burning Love" created by Ken Marino), producer Bryan Singer looks to be offering up something that will surely entice the resident sci-fi enthusiasts.

If the name Andrea Riseborough isn't one you're overly familiar with, you might want to do the appropriate homework. The rising British actress broke onto the scene in 2010 with "Made In Dagenham," "Never Let Me Go" and "Brighton Rock" but didn't exactly earn much recognition as all three films failed to make a big impression. Madonna's "W.E.," in which Riseborough plays infamous heiress Wallis Simpson, also came and went, but the actress is fighting back, starring in "Shadow Dancer" and "Welcome to the Punch" later this year and is currently shooting "Oblivion" opposite Tom Cruise. And now, most excitingly, the actress is lining up a teaming with two of the biggest names going around.
