It's Tolkien Week, so Warner Bros. is carpet-bombing the interwebs with promotional material for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" all in anticipation of the brand-new trailer coming tomorrow. And the big question WB will have to answer is how can they get audiences back in the same numbers that came out to make "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy a nearly $3 billion worldwide smash? Hopefully Peter Jackson and co. will be bringing something both familiar and fresh.

Well, it won't be the director's cut that was rumored ever so briefly, but the epic finale to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy "The Dark Knight Rises," is on its way to home video, and following the pattern set by the director's last two films, it's coming just in time for Christmas.

Now in cinemas in the U.K., and having already rolled its way through TIFF, Joe Wright's sumptuous "Anna Karenina" hasn't quite taken off as an awards season contender. While many admire the picture, it hasn't garnered full on fervor (though we really dig it), but one thing most people can agree on is that it looks fantastic. And not only that, Wright has staged this thing beautifully with some breathtaking sequences -- aided by the decision to shoot the picture almost like a stage production -- adding to the visual fireworks on display. There are still a couple of months before it lands stateside, but a host of new images are here to give you the best look at the movie yet.

With "The Avengers" headed to home video next week, Marvel Phase One now fades into the sunset, and Phase Two is already underway with "Iron Man 3" in front of cameras. And with a full slate over the next few years, under the stewardship of Joss Whedon, with "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy" also on the way all leading towards "The Avengers 2," it's no surprise that the superhero roster is going to get bigger.

Having tackled such topics as people on death row, the oldest known images created by early man, grizzly bear activists and the landscape of the Antarctic, Werner Herzog is next flexing his directorial muscle and inquistive brain power on... a mini-documentary about The Killers? Uh, sure why not...

While Martin Papazian may not be a household name yet, he's quietly been building up a resume that includes stints on "Supernatural," "Dexter" and "24" with an appearance in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man" as well. But sometimes if you want to get a meaty, leading role you have to make the magic happen yourself, and that's just what he's done as writer, director and star of his feature helming debut "Least Among Saints."

Where is Rosamund Pike finding the time? Fresh off of “Jack Reacher,” the actress is busy filming a significant role in Edgar Wright’s final instalment in the jokingly monikered ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy, “The World’s End.” Once she’s wrapped on that she’ll be reuniting with Simon Pegg on the set of “Hector and the Search for Happiness,” and she’s also attached to Stephen Brown’s “The Sea.” But not content with that busy schedule (and likely happy to capitalise on a sudden resurgence in popularity), Pike has added another project in the form of Pascal Chaumeil’s English-language debut “A Long Way Down.”

With the summer fading and fall colors beginning to appear, America's greatest pasttime gears up for the post-season as the baseball playoffs are just weeks away. And what better way to gear up for the road to the World Series than with a documentary centered on one of the most curious corners of the game: the knuckleball. From directors Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg ("The Devil Came on Horseback," "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work") comes "Knuckleball," a documentary on the slowest, strangest and most unpredictable pitch in the game that only a select few are masters.

There's a lot of films this year which are going to go down to the wire when it comes to making their Oscar-targeted release dates. Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" was still announcing casting in May, although it seems to be well on course for its December date. Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" was still shooting at the end of July, a risky move for a film that's also heading for a Christmas date. And mega-musical "Les Miserables" wrapped only a few weeks earlier.

It is, we're told, Tolkien Week. We're not sure entirely what that means, except that it's presumably something like Shark Week, but with elves. But in movie publicity terms, it means a big push from Warner Bros. for their upcoming "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," a two-part hastily cobbled-together trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's first excursion to Middle Earth, which serves as a prequel to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
