The Double, Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikoswka
Of all the films coming out in 2014 we've already seen, it's safe to say Richard Ayoade's "The Double" is near the top of our list. Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, the film is a dark, Kafka-esque story centered on a man who is driven insane by the appearance of his doppelgänger.

The limited theatrical/VOD model is more and more gaining prominence as way to take on challenging or smaller scale films and have them find an audience where a regular multiplex release might see it get buried. We've seen "Margin Call" and "Arbitrage" become success stories, not only finding viewers, but also earning awards season buzz. And Magnolia have had success with the model too, and one only has to point to their efforts with Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia," which they managed to bring to over $3 million domestically. Not bad for a tough movie about the end of the world, and it was the best effort at the North American box office for the director since "Dancer In The Dark." And it looks like they'll be getting into bed with him again.

When it was first announced last summer that David Gordon Green had gone ahead a shot a movie in secret with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, we didn't know what to think. A remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way" which nobody (who isn't in Iceland) had really seen anyway, the question was whether or not it was going to be another comic goof, or perhaps something closer to the mood and tone of his earlier work. Well, it turns out its both of those things.

Fourteen years after he helped launch the Dogme 95 movement with his family drama “The Celebration,” director Thomas Vinterberg returned to Cannes this past month with his latest film, “The Hunt.” As the Croisette is wont to do, reactions were immensely divided, with some calling the film a masterpiece of near-unbearable dread, while others found the film a manipulative soap opera. Luckily for the filmmakers though, those in distribution kept a keen eye, and have now tapped the film for a future US release.

For RPatz fans, the wait has been unbearable. First going in front of cameras in February 2010, they waited patiently for "Bel Ami," hoping it would turn up on the festival circuit in 2011, but alas, it was not to be. Finally, it premiered at the Berlin Film Fetival in February to mostly lukewarm reviews (including one from us), before quickly scurrying into theaters last weekend in the U.K. But a stateside relese date still remained up in the air. Well, tonight RPatz fans will rest easily in the knowledge that Edward himself will be coming to theaters -- and even better, into their homes -- very soon.

A delicious meal? An expensive and unfilling dinner? Legitimate excuse to pull out of a David Mamet joint?
