Well, this is a bit unexpected. Randall Wallace, the writer behind such manly fare as "Braveheart," "Pearl Harbor," and "We Were Soldiers" (which he also directed), seems to be showing a softer side of late. A couple of years ago, he delivered the wholesome Disney horseracing movie "Secretariat," and now he's lined up a movie about a little kid who goes to heaven. We're not fucking kidding.

There is really only one big question to be answered by the upcoming "Greetings From Tim Buckley": Can "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley adequately step into the shoes of the late Jeff Buckley? With the film headed to the fall festival circuit, we'll soon find out (though some early live footage does give an indication of the actor's pipes), but until then we'll only have some images to work with. Fortunately, a whole new batch has arrived.

“The Maze Runner” is one of the various young-adult book franchises that Hollywood is attempting to make into their latest big-screen cash cow. But for every "Harry Potter," "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games," there’s a "Golden Compass," "Cirque Du Freak" or "Eragon," so it’s a difficult business making sure that great material survives the transition from the page to the screen. Fox thought they had this franchise in safe hands with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke signed on to direct the first installment, but it seems that at some point between now and December 2010 she left to pursue other projects.

Seen everywhere from Paul Oakenfold's DJ decks to frolicking on the beachfront with Christian Bale and beautiful actresses in tow, director Terrence Malick has seemingly conjured up non-stop momentum with his latest, “Knight of Cups,” never hinting where or who it will land next. So it went earlier this week with “Snabba Cash” actor Joel Kinnaman finding a part in the film, and now with the Weinsteins' latest release, “Lawless,” coming to theatres soon, an actor from that film has revealed his involvement in the sprawling production.

With a star-studded cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, and Jonah Hill along with source material delving into Wall Street greed and betrayal, Martin Scorsese's latest film, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” seems to be his return to recognizable territory of horrible deeds done by extravagant individuals. However, as glimpsed from a recent peek at the script written by Terence Winter (“Boardwalk Empire”), those familiar elements do feature some intriguing twists to the formula that Scorsese has made classic, in addition to news of another veteran actor who may be lending solely his voice talents to the project. Minor spoilers below.

Cinematic poetry can be scoffed at, labeled pretentious, and thoroughly dismissed without a second thought. But somehow, Ron Fricke’s “Baraka,” a “non-verbal documentary” that uses time-lapse photography and impressionable ambulatory cinematography to chart the human race through more than twenty countries managed to move even those who hold the “art-film” label with serious vehemence. The film is one of a handful of documentaries that favor visual tone over language (with absolutely no interviews or narration), a small clique that includes Godfrey Reggio’s “Qatsi Trilogy” to Fricke’s own short-form “Chronos.” They don’t come around often -- and aside from researching and trekking all over the world, we can only assume they’re difficult to finance due to their nature -- but when they do, cinema-goers can be assured they’re in for something exceptionally unique.
