During the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival you may have missed it, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet's upcoming 3D English-language film "The Young And Prodigious Spivet" recently dropped a pretty charming trailer and it seemed to impress the right people. Over the weekend, Deadline reported that none other that Harvey Weinstein swooped in to grab the U.S. rights to the picture for his The Weinstein Company and now a few more pics have emerged for the movie.

John Wells, Bradley Cooper
The story of “Chef” is rather complicated, but let’s have a go at it. And before we get there, do not confuse this with the very-similarly sounding “Chef” project that Jon Favreau is now attached to. Written by “Eastern Promises” screenwriter Steven Wright, “Chef,” is a cooking comedy/drama that’s been in development for some years. It interested David Fincher and Keanu Reeves for a while a few years back, but the project never gained enough traction (Fincher’s short attention span went elsewhere). Owned by the house of Weinstein, Bradley Cooper became involved in the lead after Harvey Weinstein figured their “Silver Linings Playbook” went swimmingly well (Oscar noms for Cooper, over $100 million domestically, etc.). Cooper then tried to enlist his “Place Beyond The Pines” director Derek Cianfrance, and while he toyed with the idea of making it his next film, the “Blue Valentine” filmmaker eventually decided it was not for him (you can read about that in our interview with him here).

The summer movie season is nearly upon us, but one of the most hotly tipped summer movies (at least for film fans of a certain ilk) still doesn't have a release date in America: Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi extravaganza "Snowpiercer." The Weinstein Company bought the domestic rights to the movie, which concerns a train traversing a post-apocalyptic, snow-covered earth, and initially had planned to release it this summer, when the movie rolls out globally. But they haven't said much, so god only knows when it will wash up on American shores. Until then, a recently released behind-the-scenes clip (courtesy of The Film Stage) gives us our first look at "Snowpiercer" in motion.

The Weinstein Company are carrying an impressive 2013 slate with "Grace Of Monaco," "August: Osage County," "Salinger," "Fruitvale," "The Butler" and "The Grandmaster" all dated, and "Snowpiercer," "Lowlife" and "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" (hopefully) expected this year as well. And it seems they are looking ahead to 2014, as they've picked up a movie that already boasts a promising pedigree.

Tim Burton Amy Adams Christoph Waltz Big Eyes
So, where do we start with "Big Eyes"? Well, let's go with a brief history lesson. Developing for at least six years if not longer, the project comes from Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ("Ed Wood," "The People Vs. Larry Flynt," "Man On The Moon") and with two big lead roles, over the years Thomas Haden Church and Kate Hudson became attached, and in 2012 Ryan Reynolds and Reese Witherspoon were linked, with Tim Burton slated to produce the effort that would serve as the screenwriters' directorial debut. But it looks Burton is going to take it all for himself with a pretty killer leading duo.

Watch: Trailer For Jonathan Levine's Debut 'All The Boys Love Mandy Lane' Finally Getting U.S. Release This Summer

Let's say you're a first time director, and you go to the Toronto International Film Festival hoping that maybe your film will get noticed and perhaps land a modest distribution deal. Now imagine that it's a hit, and none other than The Weinstein Company come calling with plans to release your movie through their Dimension Films shingle. Awesome! Or so it would seem to anyone, but this was 2006 and director Jonathan Levine -- who would go on to make "The Wackness," "50/50" and "Warm Bodies" -- found himself in a curious situation with "All The Boys Love Mandy Lane." He had a hot distributor for his movie, but they got cold feet after "Grindhouse" flopped, and sold his picture to Senator Entertainment...who went out of business. But now the movie has come full circle.

Maybe they were reading our Premature Oscar Predictions? Just days after our series ended, looking way far at the horizon of next year's potential Oscar nominees, The Weinstein Company has dated four films of their late fall awards season hopefuls. Obviously, those films were going to land in Oscar season regardless, but kudos to our features for being on point; Harvey and co. will be driving hard the very films we had touted as potentially strong contenders for next year's Academy season.

It can safely be said that Harvey Weinstein no longer needs to try too hard. After nudging “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django Unchained” toward their Oscar wins Sunday night, and even snagging FLOTUS to deliver the Best Picture award? No need. But the famed producer's key to success is persistence, and he's now moved to award another filmmaker's for his.

One of the many zillion projects Antoine Fuqua has been linked to in the past while is "Southpaw," a boxing flick once mooted as a vehicle for Eminem (he's since moved on to focus on his music). Last spring, the movie got put on the backburner by Sony and MGM, and then it pretty much fell off the radar. But now it's back to life at a new home.

Are we already looking at one of next year's Best Actress nominees? With three Oscar nominations and one win under her belt, Nicole Kidman is no stranger to the awards season, and while The Weinstein Company is hoping to see some love for "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Django Unchained" at the Dolby Theater tonight, they've already got their eyes on next year. In recent days they snapped up the rights to the Idris Elba-starring biopic "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," and now they've got another true-life tale added to their slate.
