It's starting to get cooler and stockings will soon be hung with care, which means that the Sundance Film Festival is around the corner, so here's some early looks at the movies everyone will be talking about next month.

First up is an image from "Safety Not Guaranteed" a promising comedy starring Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass and Jake Johnson ("Ceremony," "New Girl"). The story centers on Darius (Plaza), a journalist looking for a good story, who responds to a serious classfied inquiry by Kenneth (Duplass) who is looking for a time travel companion. She begins to question her beliefs when she soon falls for him and can't decide whether or not he's actually building a time machine. With the talent rounding this out including Jeff Garlin, Lynn Shelton, Kristen Bell and Mary Lynn Rajskub, this one seems tailor made for breakout status.

Meanwhile, Mark Webber (best known as Stephen Stills in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World") is bringing his tiny indie "The End Of Love" to Sundance. Directed by and starring himself and his two year old son, the film revolves around a man who slowly unravels after the death of the mother of his child. Shannyn Sossamon, Michael Cera, Jason Ritter and Amanda Seyfried will also make apperances in the film, which was shot on a Canon 5D camera.

The Sundance Film Festival runs from January 19-29.
