With "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Campaign" arriving this weekend, the summer movie season is winding down to a close, but August will cap off with one big hurrah, when John Hillcoat's "Lawless" rolls into theaters. The rootin', tootin' bootleggin' drama is bringing a helluva cast (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke and more) and story to the big screen, and The Weinstein Company want to make sure there are asses in the seats.

Julie Delpy is about to fly to Greece, so she's making her last-minute arrangements. First she needs a dress -- and she only has fifteen minutes to shop. And then there's the weather -- will New York have any more of those insane storm clouds that could delay her flight? And finally, she arranges to pick up a prescription for some anti-anxiety pills -- not so she can take them, but so she can know that they're there; their mere presence wards off "major crazy stress...so I can sleep." Life has been so hectic, "I don't even have a minute to myself," the writer/director/actress confessed to the Playlist. "I can barely go to the bathroom! Don't worry," she laughed. "I can keep it in. I can squeeze!" [editor's note: FYI, later in this story, Delpy herself reveals the identity of the wickedly funny cameo in the film. If you haven't seen it, we suggest you proceed with caution; though knowing who it is beforehand likely won't spoil your enjoyment of this terrific film]

“OH SNAP, no she didn’t!,” is what we’d imagine the filmmakers behind the Anna Kendrick-starring “Pitch Perfect” want us to say throughout the majority of the running time for this film, which goes where few films have gone before in an effort to take a “Bring it On”-style comedic riff on a capella groups in college. When Barden University freshman Beca is discovered to have some impressive singing skills by a member of the university’s a cappella squad The Bellas – the school’s all-girl singing group – it really heats up the campus competition between The Bellas and their male rivals.

It sounded, for a few weeks, as if Keira Knightley was done with the blockbusters. The actress, and star of the giant "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, told Empire Magazine this month "It comes to a point where you think, 'What kind of film can I make that will allow me to live a proper life?' And those tent-pole movies make it difficult... I became aware of how much I was complaining about it and you can't complain about the attention you're getting while still doing the films that invite the most attention. I do actually love blockbusters but that decision has a lot that comes with it that I'm not prepared to go with.”

When reports surfaced earlier this year that the long-awaited sequel to Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset" films would shoot this summer, many were surprised at the announcement. A collaboration between Linklater and actors Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, last we had all heard, the film was still in the conceptualizing/writing stage.

While the Rebecca Hall and Dominic West-led “The Awakening” has been rolling out in theaters across the world for some time now, the fright show is only just receiving a Stateside release in limited run theaters next week. While buzz on the film hasn’t exactly been deafening, one of our writers found it to be “flawed, but also kind of a blast,” and the film’s trailer certainly gave off a distinct atmosphere of true horror.

America, fuck yeah! Are you wearing your stars-and-stripes underoos? If so, then get ready for a healthy dose of patriotism the only way Hollywood knows how -- by remaking a movie and blowing shit up real good.

While she has definitely earned her stripes as the frontwoman for the acclaimed rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O has also been making some impressive steps in the movie soundtrack world. She memorably contributed a brace of music to Spike Jonze's excellent "Where The Wild Things Are," and last year howled on the cover version of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" for David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." But now she's moving back toward something for kids, contributing "Strange Love," a brand new song, to Tim Burton's ghoulish "Frankenweenie." And she's not the only interesting choice on the soundtrack.

However, a third movie may be beating them both to the big screen.

So, in addition to serving as the final chapter in "The Twilight Saga," will 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' also be a scrapbook to Robsten, one of the great cinema romances of our time? Certainly, the picture of them gazing lovingly at each other in this batch of new images from the sequel carries with it a certain amount of weight. Will KStew and RPatz fans be able to contain their tears? Yes, this movie asks big questions...
