It was only a couple of months ago that we saw the first (english-subtitled) trailer for the new Studio Ghibli film, “From Up On Poppy Hill.” The film is written by Hayao Miyazaki and directed by his son, Goro Miyazaki (“Tales From Earthsea”) and the voice cast for the English-language dub has been revealed.

So that all-female style "The Expendables" is actually becoming a thing. Last month, Gina Carano was the first name on board the movie, and now another actress has joined her, bringing some geek cred to the production.

While Kurdish director Bahman Ghobadi has practiced rather unconventional narratives and aesthetics, starting from his 2000 debut “A Time For Drunken Horses” through to his 2009 look into underground Persian rock, “No One Knows About Persian Cats,” his films have nonetheless remained central to Iran's borders. However, following a fruitful early meeting with Martin Scorsese that led to his latest feature “Rhino Season” finding production and release this year ("presented by" the legendary filmmaker no less), it seems Ghobadi's next project will be even more intertwined.

Representing a labyrinthine nightmare both in terms of subject matter and also fair rights usage, Rodney Ascher's documentary “Room 237” delves into “The Shining” and Stanley Kubrick's themes and meanings like never before. Using source material from Mario Bava films to Disney cartoons, everything from set dressing to shot angles in Kubrick's horror classic is analyzed to nail down some sort of truth, and the film's just-released trailer certainly hints at that mystery.

Despite the fact that “The Avengers 2” doesn’t even have a script and that Marvel hasn’t completely nailed down their Phase 2 plans yet, there are already rumors about the new characters that would appear in the film, and even about who will play them. So grab some salt and take a seat while we talk about stuff that’s not even close to happening.

Having recently wrapped "Knights Of Cups" in L.A., a story about a man's temptations, celebrity and excess that stars Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabelle Lucas (at least in its principal cast), recluse filmmaker turned speedy auteur, Terrence Malick is now in Austin, Texas shooting his next picture, formerly known as "Lawless" (Malick was kind enough to let his friend John Hillcoat take the name for his gangster drama that came out late August).

Is Ridley Scott becoming the new George Lucas in tearing down his legacy? No matter what you thought about "Prometheus" it has become clear that the movie isn't exactly a prequel to "Alien" so much as a prequel to the eventual sequel that will be the prequel to "Alien." Or something. But has Ridley Scott now decided to drag "Blade Runner" into his world building?

In Theaters: 'Taken 2' & 'The Paperboy' Are 'Butter' In The Mouths Of 'Frankenweenie' Who Haunts 'Wuthering Heights'

Halloween is still a few weeks away, but, like the drug stores that erect candy aisles in August, the studios are rolling out the thematic material a little early. A reinterpretation of "Frankenstein" for kids (it's never too early to start them on the classics) is complemented by the horror-movie-of-the-week and a number of films that delve into more realistic terrors, like the demise of healthcare or the drug problem in the United States. Also, a Sarah Palin surrogate sculpts with butter. Spooky.

What's better than four "Paranormal Activity" movies? How about a Latino-flavored spin-off? (But that isn't in Spanish). Well, your wish is coming true as those reports this spring that a demographically targeted version of the hit horror series was happening were correct. And the movie will be teased after the credits of "Paranormal Activity 4." Truly terrifying.
