At one time kicked around as a potential awards contender last fall, when it emerged that the politically charged, quirky indie comedy "Butter" didn't quite have the same juice as something like "Little Miss Sunshine," The Weinstein Company pushed the movie to their 2012 calendar. And now, almost a full year since it debuted on the festival circuit, it's headed to theaters and the first trailer has dropped. And you know what? It looks pretty delightful.

With all the talk about “Finding Nemo 2,” people have quieted down about Pixar’s other upcoming, wholly unnecessary follow-up, “Monsters University,” a prequel to 2001’s mischievous and heartwarming “Monsters, Inc.,” which illuminates the collegiate background of monsters James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Yes, it is the story we were all dying for. While talking to Entertainment Weekly about some movie we’ve never heard of, Crystal gave some tantalizing details about what to expect from the prequel (due in theaters next summer).

With the fall film festival line-ups now pretty much all revealed, it seems we may have to wait until 2013 to see the sophomore directorial effort of Roman Coppola. It's been over ten years since the deliciously twisted "CQ," but Coppola has now brought together a great cast that includes Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza and Mary Elizabeth Winstead for what he describes as "a guy's point of a view of a break-up" in "A Glimpse Into The Mind Of Charlie Swan III." In an interview with GQ, however, Coppola provided a little update on the pic regarding music, noting that he "used exclusively the music of Liam Hayes" having been "absorbed" by his tunes.

It seems "A Separation" director Asghar Farhadi won't have to sweat it in terms of talent for his next film, and first French-language feature. Earlier this year, it was reported he had rounded up "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim and the luminous Marion Cotillard to topline his picture, but alas the latter has fallen out, but her replacement is nothing to sneeze at.

So, Jack Ryan is finally coming back. The long-developing movie, formerly titled "Moscow" and now generically known as "Untitled Jack Ryan Reboot" or whatever, is actually headed into production with Kenneth Branagh directing and playing the villain, Chris Pine in the lead role, Keira Knightley as his wife and Kevin Costner as the man who recruits and trains the agent. And with screenwriter David Koepp recently telling ComingSoon that shooting begins in two weeks, Paramount is ready to place this thing on the calendar and starting thinking franchise.

When “Inception” hit in 2010 most of its major players wasted no time in cashing in on the boost to their profile that it gave them. Leonardo DiCaprio obviously just carried on being a massive star, but the likes of Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard all made some smart career moves that have seen their stars exponentially rise since -- not least by signing on to Nolan’s follow-up, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Someone we haven’t seen of much of though is is the film's Araidne, Ellen Page. Maybe she was put off by the blockbuster experience (as if “X-Men: The Last Stand” wouldn’t have already done that), because instead, she has simply lined up a part in a Woody Allen flick and a couple of other small features including Zal Batmanglij's "The East," rather than follow the same blockbuster path as her castmates.

As the summer film season slows to a halt with lessening explosions, it’s time to look forward to festivals like Venice, TIFF and Telluride, which will offer us a taste of what we can expect during the upcoming fall/awards seasons run. One film that will be playing TIFF, however, “Brick” director Rian Johnson’s sci-fi actioner “Looper,” is starting a marketing rollout akin to so many of those big summer tentpoles.

Depending on which side of the fence you're on, Brian De Palma hasn't made a good movie since the '90s, or he hasn't lost his touch. For everyone who dislikes a certain film, particularly recent pictures like "Femme Fatale" or "The Black Dahlia," there are just as many ready to find the merit and pleasures in the work. And judging by the first trailer for "Passion," that will probably be the case here.

Since his breakout turn on HBO's "Girls" as Lena Dunham's love interest, Adam Driver has found himself working with the Coen Brothers on "Inside Llewyn Davis," and with Steven Spielberg on "Lincoln," amounting to a pretty good year for the actor. Driver is also currently shooting rom-com "The F Word," which co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan among others, and has now lined up another project that'll see him star opposite another young talent: Mia Wasikowska.

Eli Roth Says He's "Cracked The Story" On Turning 'Thanksgiving' Short Into A Feature Film

It's hard to believe, but it's coming on five years now since Eli Roth last directed a feature-length film ("Hostel: Part II"). Since then, he's been busy as a producer, throwing his weight behind "The Last Exorcism," the upcoming films "Aftershock" and "The Man With Iron Fists" (both of which he co-wrote as well). But he hasn't stayed away from directing entirely, helming the short "Nation's Pride," which appeared in his buddy Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," as well as the pilot for the upcoming Netflix horror series "Hemlock Grove." And while Roth has had a couple of projects percolating -- including the sci-fi flick "Endangered Species," which he said last summer will be his next film -- "Grindhouse" fans will be happy to know one particular project still has some life.
