It's now nearly six years since we last saw a film from director Todd Field. And you would think that there wouldn't be such a gap from the filmmaker, given that his directorial debut was the Oscar-nominated "In The Bedroom" (which saw him pick up nods for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay), and his follow-up was the equally acclaimed "Little Children" (which got three Oscar noms, including another for Screenplay for Field).

Just as night follows day, so trailers generally follow posters, and hot on the heels of our exclusive premiere of the one-sheet for Ry Russo-Young's acclaimed Sundance hit "Nobody Walks" yesterday, Apple have premiered the first trailer for the film. And it looks pretty good, all in all. Co-written by "Girls" sensation Lena Dunham, the film follows Martine, a 23-year-old artist from New York City, who stays in the pool house of a Los Angeles family to complete work on her art film. But the characters' worlds are quickly upheaved as lust, desire and deception come creeping into the seemingly idyllic setting.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Discusses 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Role, Kind Of Spoils Plot

Beyond his villainous turn in "Mission Impossible III," and a small part in "Red Dragon," Oscar-winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman has, for the most part, avoided the tentpole world, at least since his early days as a relatively unknown actor in films like "Twister." Which made it all the more surprising when he signed on to the next entry in the biggest new franchise of 2012, "The Hunger Games." After all, the actor's generally pretty picky with his roles, and it was initially hard to imagine him fitting in with the interestingly-facial-haired, day-glo world of the capital when he takes up the mantle of Plutarch Heavensbee, the replacement games-maker after Seneca Crane bit the poisoned berry at the end of the first installment.

CBS Films Move 'Seven Psychopaths' Up To October 12th, Delay 'Gambit' To Winter 2013

After a disappointing 2011 in which their films underperformed greatly, CBS Films have been doing a little better this year. February's "The Woman In Black" proved to be a sleeper hit, and Lasse Hallstrom's "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" did pretty decently as well a month or two later. Next up for the company is "The Words," which opens next month, but they have done a little tinkering with their release schedule for further on the year.

All snark aside, the recent personal life revelations about "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, and its implications on her real-life relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, have made sad reading, just as it's always sad to hear that any nice-seeming young couple are having difficulties. There's always many facets and sides to such a story, and as enticing as the gossip can be, we've all been in similar situations ourselves, on any number of angles, and it's hard not to feel for all involved.

The term 'golden age of movie sci-fi' has been bandied about a little, and while that might be a little breathless, there's no denying that the last few years have seen more than a few smart, independent-minded films in the genre that have proven truly impressive, from micro-budget films like "Primer" and "Monsters" to bigger budget fare like "District 9." And next month certainly seems to back up the thesis, with two new films hoping to make their mark and win over sci-fi fans within a few weeks of each other.

Ever since his run as the governor of California ended, people have speculated about the future of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career. There were rumors of a return to the “Terminator” franchise as well as the long-gestating World War II film “With Wings As Eagles.” But while he’s set to return later this month in the sequel “The Expendables 2,” we’re more excited by his role in the new film from “I Saw The Devil” and “The Good The Bad The Weird” director Kim Jee-woon, “The Last Stand.”

The paths of Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have crossed many times in movies such as "Wedding Crashers," "Zoolander," "Starsky & Hutch," "Anchorman" and "Old School." And lucky for us, they will all be meeting up once again. Ferrell is slated to take a cameo role in currently lensing "The Internship," the movie that finds Vaughn and Wilson playing recently downsized men in their forties who try to make it as interns at a successful Internet company where their managers are in their twenties. So who will Ferrell play? Well, he'll be "Wilson's brother-in-law, who sells home electronics and has no problem making inappropriate comments about his attractive customers." So improv heaven -- sounds good to us. Lensing is underway on the Shawn Levy-directed movie which should hit theaters sometime next year.
