With the Vietnam war raging, one man will make a decision that tests his own morals, ethics and view on American life: fight for his country or go skinny dipping with Teresa Palmer? Yes, those are quandaries Liam Hemsworth faces in "Love and Honor," the kind of movie Channing Tatum used to do.

With a release date now all sewn up for Paramount's we-really-hope-it's-not-actually-called "Jack Ryan," it seems production on the movie is now off and running hard, and the studio has dropped a look at the lead character for a new generation.

Forgoing the fantasy elements of past pictures of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Science of Sleep" and even his upcoming "Mood Indigo," Michel Gondry's scrappy, lo-fi indie "The We and the I" is something outside of the box for the filmmaker. Putting his usual visual tools away, he gathered up a bunch of non-actors and put them on a bus to tell an ensemble story about a bunch of high school kids on the last day of school in the Bronx. And while it still waits for a U.S. distributor to come aboard, it hits theaters in France next month and the first clip from the movie has dropped. And it's very loud.

It’s been a rough couple of years for Guillermo del Toro. After bailing on “The Hobbit,” which was deadlocked for some time due to MGM’s financial issues, he began work on his long-discussed H.P. Lovecraft dream project “At the Mountains of Madness” that had misfortune of having the plug pulled by a gun-shy Universal, despite Tom Cruise circling the lead. Fortunately, the director had another project, the giant robots vs. giant monsters “Pacific Rim” at the ready with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. After impressing the geek crowd this summer at Comic-Con with some early footage and a cool poster, things have been quiet, but the latest issue of Empire has some cool-looking production pictures.

Well, there's good news and bad news. We'll give you the latter first -- despite what looked like a lot of evidence to suggest that the much talked about follow-up to Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" was now filming in Greece...it's not. However, it is being actively worked on, and while both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy were spotted around Greece, it seems they are still putting ideas to paper.

With reviews still coming in from Venice for Ramin Bahrani's latest, "At Any Price," critics largely seem to agree on one point -- that the film carries with it a distinct vibe and feeling of classic cinema of yore. In our own breakdown of the film, our man on the Lido wrote the picture takes "the form of an good old-fashioned melodrama, closer to 'Giant' or 'Death Of A Salesman' then anything else," and in this first excerpt from the film, that sensation is palpable.

The Playlist is earning its air miles this month. With Oliver currently sipping espressos in Italy, we've got another man on the ground in Colorado, where the Telluride Film Festival gets underway today. As per usual, organizers dropped their slate right before the kickoff yesterday, revealing an impressive selection of films culled from the best of Venice and Cannes, with premieres including Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha," "Hyde Park on Hudson" with Bill Murray, Michael Winterbottom's "Everyday," Deepa Mehta's "Midnight's Children" and more. The fest seemed to be missing a knockout title (or two), but it appears one of them has been revealed.

Maybe we should call it Annette Bening day. The actress features in two new photos from two films arriving on the film festival circuit. First up is "Imogene," which is a starring vehicle for Kristen Wiig, developed by the 'SNL' comedienne before she took off in "Bridesmaids." Directed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman ("American Splendor"), the picture centers on a washed-up playwright (Wiig) who, after faking her own suicide as a ploy to get her ex-boyfriend's attention, winds up remanded to the custody of her wackily dysfunctional family. The picture also co-stars Bening, as you can see by the photo, Matt Dillon and "Glee" star Darren Criss.
