Being lost and adrift in your mid-30s is a familiar sensation of a certain generation, and "How I Met Your Mother" star Josh Radnor captures that with "Liberal Arts," his upcoming sophomore feature directorial effort.

It seems like just yesterday that a new Studio Ghibli movie was gracing our shores and now we have a trailer for another new Studio Ghibli joint. (We aren't complaining.) This new film, "From Up on Poppy Hill," like February's "Secret World of Arrietty," was written and conceived by Studio Ghibli's Walt Disney equivalent Hayao Miyazaki but not directed by him. Instead, this new film was directed by Miyazaki's son, Goro, who last helmed the studio's beautiful but confounding 2006 fantasy epic "Tales from Earthsea." Thankfully, this new film looks way more down to earth.

Christopher Nolan has never been one to overshare, and certainly when it comes to deleted scenes, it's not exactly something he believes in. Neither "Batman Begins" or "The Dark Knight" home video releases contain any extra footage among their plethora of extras, and thus far with "The Dark Knight Rises" there has only been one official still and a script page that reveals anything that Nolan might've left on the cutting room floor. But it appears there is certainly a bit more.

It's a pretty good time to be Jennifer Lawrence. The actress is not only a major part of two franchises -- "The Hunger Games" and the new Matthew Vaughn directed 'X-Men' films -- but she's making major strides in the dramatic realm as well, starring in this fall's David O. Russell flick "The Silver Linings Playbook," with Susanne Bier's period tale "Serena" already in the can. And moreover, she's lining up big projects to fit in between the blockbusters, including an adaptation of the acclaimed memoir "The Glass Castle" and more recently, the romantic drama "The Ends Of The Earth." But it's also time for Lawrence to get rewarded for her success so far, and boy, while she ever.

It seems "L.A. Riots" isn't the only long-developing project to get some new life today, as "Persepolis" and "Chicken With Plums" director Marjane Satrapi is now taking over a movie that at one time had a pretty promising pair circling.

It may be hard to recall now, but there was once a time when director M. Night Shyamalan was coined by Time magazine as “The Next Spielberg,” and the fact that almost everything the helmer touched, starting with 1999’s “The Sixth Sense” seemed to turn to gold, he was certainly becoming the go-to poster boy for blockbuster genre filmmaking in the same vein as the bearded one. Now after a storied series of missteps which includes directing films like “The Happening” and “The Last Airbender,” along with a notoriously humorless approach to looking at his own work, much of the goodwill Shyamalan built early in his career has seemed to all but vanish from even some of his most adamant defenders.

It seems it's all about world building right now. With Marvel proving it can make a billion dollar success by tying together their superhero movies, other studios are giving it a shot. Universal will show the connective tissue between "The Bourne Ultimatum" and "The Bourne Legacy" on Friday, and you can bet Warner Bros. has that strategy in the back of their mind as they consider greenlighting the massive "The Dark Tower," and the folks over at Paramount may be considering the same thing with their Jack Ryan reboot.

Taking some time off after 2010’s “Please Give” to bring her caustic hilarity to “Parks and Recreation” and “Enlightened,” it's not like Nicole Holofcener had swapped the big screen for the small permanently. She’s had a couple scripts in development for years, including a French remake and the crime drama “Every Secret Thing” (which “West of Memphis” director Amy Berg recently signed on to direct), but after casting news broke earlier this summer on her latest directorial effort, it appears the film has rounded out its line-up with two veteran actresses.
