'The Kings Of Summer'
Summer is now, sadly, a distant memory and we'll be honest—we're hard pressed to favorably remember anything from the multiplex. But luckily for those who were a bit more adventurous and sought out movies that weren't sequels, prequels or CGI fests, there was still some small treasures to be found. One that certainly left an impression was the feature debut from Jordan Vogt-Roberts, "The Kings Of Summer." If somehow you didn't manage to catch the film, the good news is you've got a chance to now, and happily we can help you out.

The Bling Ring,
Why do kids want to live like celebrities? There's no definitive answer to that question, but Sofia Coppola explores the mindset of that kind of youth in "The Bling Ring."

And whether you're now catching up or if you're a fan of the movie, we've got a pretty great prize pack for some lucky readers.

The East, Alexander Skarsgård
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for you to pick up the latest releases on DVD and Blu-ray.

And if you haven't seen the movie, you might want to skip this part—a look at the alternate endings from the Zal Batmanglij-helmed film arrived online that show the different paths the film could have taken.

A.C.O.D. Adam Scott
Sometimes movies need to sell us on their premise or the visual ambition, or provide some other hook to get us interested. Then there are movies like the upcoming comedy "A.C.O.D.," which with an ensemble led by Adam Scott and featuring Catherine O'Hara, Richard Jenkins, Jane Lynch, Clark Duke, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amy Poehler and Jessica Alba, has the kind of cast we'd watch in anything. Just tell us where to show up. Speaking of showing up, not only do have some exclusive photos and clips from the film but those of you in New York City may be in for an extra treat.

From Up On Poppy Hill
Although it's causing something of a storm in Japan, where wartime matters are still controversial, “The Wind Rises,” the latest film from animation legend Hayao Miyazaki (read our review) is already a huge critical and commercial hit, as is par for the course for the great director (if case you hadn’t heard, he’s retiring). His son, Goro Miyazaki, has always been given a much rougher ride with Japanese audiences, often laboring in the shadow of his illustrious father. “From Up on Poppy Hill” marked a serious turning point though, picking up a slew of good reviews in Japan, the U.S. and Europe, as well as a healthy box-office take and the Animation of the Year award at the Japan Academy Prize (the Japanese Oscars.)

Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson
This one's got love, sex and porn. What more could you want? Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a triple threat. Writer, director, actor, you could even go quintuple or more if you counted his growing entrepreneurial multi-media empire hitRecord and his seemingly innate ability to sing and dance. Having made many shorts for his aforementioned company, Gordon-Levitt directed his first feature-length effort earlier this year and it premiered to rave reviews at Sundance. Titled "Don Jon," the movie co-stars Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza and Brie Larson and centers on a New Jersey lothario (JGL) who develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and then has to work at finding happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.

Wong Kar-Wai's martial arts epic "The Grandmaster" kicks its way onto screens this weekend, with a generous push from The Weinstein Company. The studio has been promoting the movie via traditional methods, but they've also been thinking outside the box. Last month, they brought Wong Kar-Wai to San Diego for Comic-Con and in a fitting fashion, a comic book was created at the same time and released at the convention. But if you weren't in San Diego and still want to check it out, we've got a pretty special treat...

There are few filmmakers who arrived with quite the same frenzy as Xavier Dolan did when he unveiled his directorial debut, "I Killed My Mother" in 2009. Landing at Cannes for a splashy premiere, where it took the Prix Regards C.I.C.A.E. Award, and putting the director on the map, it established the bold style that Dolan would develop across two more features, "Heartbeats" and "Laurence Anyways." With Dolan slated to unveil his latest effort, the thriller "Tom At The Farm" — which promises to be taking a different direction than his previous works — now is as good a time as any to revisit where it all begun.
