Screw in your eyeballs, and take a sneak peek at some movies coming soon....and not so soon....to a theater to near you.

Populaire

Lastly, here's a new image from "Populaire".....what the hell is "Populaire"? Well, way back in the spring, The Weinstein Company snapped up the rights to the French film after flipping through the script and watching 20 minutes of footage, but not much has been heard of it since. Well, with the movie gearing up to open overseas, a new image has emerged, and it promises a cinematic confection.

Starring Romain Duris ("Heartbreakers"), Deborah Francois and Berenice Bejo ("The Artist"), the highly stylized movie is said to have been made in the vein of classic comedies, with the story taking place in the 1950s and centering on a small-town woman whose typing abilities bring her to New York City to compete in a contest. So yes, a French take on American cinema once again...it's probably pretty easy to see why Harv wanted this one.

"Populaire" opens in France on November 28th, but there is no stateside date yet. But with The Weinsteins basically having their hands full until the end of year with "The Master," "Django Unchained" and "Silver Linings Playbook," our guess is that it will be 2013 before we see this one.
