So, let's straighten this all out. First there was the BBC hit comedy show "The Inbetweeners," about four young lads who are interested in the kinds of things young lads are usually interested in: alcohol and sex. The show gained a strong following, but no one could have predicted that the "The Inbetweeners Movie" -- released last year and coming to the U.S. in September -- would become the highest growing comedy in the U.K. of all time. And of course, a remake came knocking, with MTV set to unspool the Americanized version of the show in August (get a first look here). But wait, there's more.

The first time the indie-rockers Devotchka penned a score to a movie, they made a pretty big splash with the killer soundtrack to Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' "Little Miss Sunshine" that they co-wrote with composer Mychael Danna ("Moneyball"). It's been often imitiated and certainly often-reused (just give a listen to "The Winner Is" below which has become a type of go-to score for indie-film trailers). Devotcka frontman Nick Urata composed most of 2009's "I Love You, Philip Morris" score by himself and he's done the same for his reteam with Dayton and Faris, "Ruby Sparks."

2011 wasn't kind to Craig Gillespie. His remake of "Fright Night" was unfairly ignored (c'mon, it featured an awesomely smarmy Colin Farrell and was a bit of goofy fun with some decent thrills) and then in the fall, he dropped out of the forever developing "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" (and we wonder about that movie ever getting made considering audiences didn't seem to care about "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"). But, it's summer 2012 and Gillespie now has something brighter on the horizon.

So, will Brian De Palma's "Passion" be a long awaited return to form or another ambitious disappointment? Well, we'll still have to wait and see, but we'd be lying if we said that the images released thus far haven't been making us excited. And now you can add one more to the pile.

If there's a more twisted and disturbing (in a good way) film that "Compliance" this year, this writer hasn't seen it. And following last week's debut of the poster, a full-blown trailer has arrived.

"The Words" might not be the sexiest movie title in history, but what it lacks in name appeal, the film makes up for in casting. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana lead a cast that also includes Olivia Wilde, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, J.K. Simmons, Ben Barnes and Nora Arzeneder. Not bad, right?

Summer movies are always terribly complex and daunting, with a number of interested parties needing to be satiated and complicated visual effects being worked out throughout production (usually right up until the time of release). Things seem to be infinitely more daunting when it's a reboot of a popular franchise, and one directed by a director making his first blockbuster outing. Such is the case with this week's "The Amazing Spider-Man," which was directed by "(500) Days of Summer" helmer Marc Webb.

It’s been a few years since the last major Stephen King film adaptation, the Frank Darabont-helmed “The Mist,” but that doesn’t mean studios haven’t been trying get in on the lucrative King business, and the past year alone has seen several different projects based on King’s books continue in development including the ill-fated and ambitious “The Dark Tower,” the Ben Affleck-helmed “The Stand” and Cary Fukunaga's "It" among others. Now it looks like another adaptation of King’s works is closer to reality.
