When Terrence Malick returned from a twenty-year break from making movies with "The Thin Red Line" in 1998, it seemed he had a lot more to say. While his first two films, "Badlands" and "Days Of Heaven," ran a sleek 90-odd minutes each, his three films afterward required a bit more time to take in. "The Thin Red Line" came in at 170 minutes, with "The New World" landing in theaters at 135 minutes and later on Blu-ray in an extended cut running 172 minutes. Finally, last year's "The Tree Of Life" ran 139 minutes (though Malick is apparently working on a 6 hour version). So, we figured his next effort would be an equally butt-numbing affair...but it seems that won't be the case.

Always a favorite of ours, French actress Isabelle Huppert has taken things to the next level this year, juggling a handful of arthouse/festival flicks from filmmakers such as Hong Sang-Soo, Brilliante Mendoza and Michael Haneke, with upcoming roles in more mainstream efforts such as that in "Dead Man Down" opposite Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace, David Gordon Green's upcoming "Suspiria" remake, and two-parter "The Disappearnce Of Eleanor Rigby" with Jessica Chastain.

It's the centenary year of famed author Charles Dickens and he's having a bit of a moment. The writer was dipped into the world of fanboys when Christopher Nolan revealed during press rounds for "The Dark Knight Rises" that "A Tale Of Two Cities" was an influence on the Batman film, while it seems filmmakers are falling over themselves to bring "Great Expectations" to the big screen. Again. Last year, Brit viewers got a miniseries starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson, and now, less than twelve months later, another take on the story is on the way.

With a script co-written by the quickly rising Lena Dunham, directed by Ry Russo-Young ("You Won’t Miss Me") and featuring a pretty great cast including Olivia Thirlby, John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt and Justin Kirk, there are a lot of reasons for the low key indie "Nobody Walks" to land on your radar.

Opera legend Maria Callas has been a talent many have sought to bring to the big screen, with a couple of biopics brewing in the past few years including one by Niki Caro that needs script work and has Eva Green on board, and another with Eva Mendes attached to star. However, before either of those projects come to fruition, it looks like Callas will first be played by Paz Vega in Olivier Dahan's "Grace Of Monaco" starring Nicole Kidman as "Rear Window" actress turned Monaco princess, Grace Kelly.

A two-part movie entitled "The Nymphomaniac" that's aiming to hit the Cannes Film Festival in 2013...yep, that sounds about right for everyone's favorite (well, almost everyone) cinematic enfant terrible, Lars Von Trier.

Quick! Name the female leads of the Jack Ryan movies! Yeah, that's what we thought, but those previous efforts are generally such testosterone-driven sausage parties, you can be forgiven for forgetting if any actresses were involved. But in rebooting the character for a whole new generation, Paramount is hoping to give Jack Ryan someone to snuggle with at the end of the night.
