We're almost exactly a third of the way through the year, and thanks to the announcement of the Cannes Film Festival line-up a couple weeks ago, we're now a little clearer on the timetable of some of the most anticipated films of the year. We know that "Cosmopolis," "Killing Them Softly," "On The Road," "Mud," "Rust And Bone," "Amour" and "The Paperboy," among others are done, and will be screening in only a few short weeks for critics, and U.S. releases, if not set already, can't be far behind. And the release schedule for the rest of the year is firming up fast, with films like "The Master" and "Seven Psychopaths" getting added to the calendar.

Early this morning brought one of the most anticipated moments in the cinephile's calendar: the announcement of the line-up of this year's installment of the Cannes Film Festival. And while it reads in places like a parody of a Cannes line-up (Alain Resnais! Abbas Kiarostami! Michael Haneke! Ken Loach!) there's no doubt that we're excited about all of those films, as well as new ones from David Cronenberg, Jacques Audiard and many, many others.

Terrence Malick is well known for shooting endless amounts of footage, most of which we'll never see, but it seems for this upcoming duo of movies "Knight Of Cups" and the tentatively titled "Lawless," not only can he not turn off the camera, celeb friends are popping up everywhere as he continues to roll. Neon Indian dude Alan Palomo, The Cult and Matthew McConaughey are some of the faces that were snapped shooting scenes at SXSW a couple of weeks back, and now, yet another celeb has been spied shooting scenes with Malick and co.

Toldja? Okay, maybe not quite, but we read the tea leaves on this just a couple of weeks ago, and now it's pretty much official. John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County" will now be titled "Lawless." Sorry Terrence Malick!

While the film portion of SXSW might be over, this weekend in Austin a plethora of bands are vying for attention in the clubs and streets of the city for the music portion of the festival. And it appears Terrence Malick was on hand as well.

Sometimes, the nomination is the prize. Even in more open years than this one (where many of the major prizes have been locked in for weeks, if not months), only two or three of the nominees have had a realistic chance of winning, with the others merely filling out the field. Which is not to say that they're not deserving. Indeed, quite often, the anointed winner is in that position because they're overdue, or they're part of a film that's sweeping the Oscars in general, or any one of a number of reasons.

It looks like a layer from Terrence Malick's otherwise mysterious "Lawless" has been peeled back. The film, one of two the director will shoot this year, has been working under a veil of secrecy thus far, but it looks like that pre-production work last fall at the Austin City Limits music festival was a good practice round for the upcoming film. And a new logline for the film reveals another interesting thematic turn for the helmer.

Nope, still no plot details or anything really about Terrence Malick's upcoming back-to-back films "Lawless" and "Knight Of Cups," but as if we couldn't be any more stoked about what the elusive filmmaker will bring to us next, here comes this little bombshell. Natalie Portman will be joining both films. Damn.

While Terrence Malick's admirers and fans are numerous, his mercurial attitude, intuitive filmmaking style and free rein in the editing suite has also earned him his fair share detractors. Adrien Brody wasn't exactly pleased to learn his lead role had pretty much be reduced to nothing in "The Thin Red Line"; composer James Horner famously battled Malick during the making of "The New World" and recently, Sean Penn was a bit confused on what his role really meant in "The Tree Of Life" (though he still recommended and supported the film). Well, you can add one more actor to the list who doesn't exactly sing the praises of Terrence Malick.

Summit Veep Confirms Terrence Malick Had Final Cut On 'The Tree Of Life'

It seems we can't stop talking about "The Tree Of Life." Terrence Malick's film continues to unfold with each viewing, and with the passing of more time, as his work tends to do. The director is known for shooting lots of footage, and leaving much on the cutting room floor, and so it was no surprise to learn recently he had storyboarded a sequence that would have included Adam and Eve and their sons, Cain, Abel and Seth that was never used. Nor was it particularly shocking when cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezski revealed earlier this year that Malick -- always editing, ever the perfectionist -- was working on a six hour version of the movie. But over the weekend, came a curious report that suggested that Malick somehow didn't have final cut over "The Tree Of Life."
