Love, sex, relationships...porn? Yep, that XXX material once relegated to magazines stuffed under mattresses and shoved into rarely used dresser drawers is now nearly mainstream. Everyone looks at it, but what if looking at that material was part of your daily life to the point where it affected how you relate to the opposite sex? That's the jumping off point for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon," and a new trailer has arrived to give you a sample of what he's put together.

Somewhere between "Indiana Jones" and "Amèlie" you'll find Luc Besson's "The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec." The movie is an adaptation of the hugely successful graphic novel series by legendary French artist Jacques Tardi and follows the eponymous writer and a number of recurring side characters in a succession of far-fetched incidents in 1910s Paris and beyond.

There are many elements that have come together to make "Breaking Bad" not only one of the best shows on TV right now, but really of all time. From the fearless plotting, the breathless direction and the outstanding performances from the cast — Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and many more — all have come together in the kind of perfect storm you don't get too often. But not mentioned nearly often enough is the score by Dave Porter.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints
You already know that we're huge fans of David Lowery's film "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster; a lyrical, meditative take on the Southern gothic family crime drama, and a deeply felt love story all rolled into one. At its debut at Sundance, we wrote in our review that, "Lowery is the real deal and understands filmmaking, and this is abundantly clear in this searing, romantic crime drama and love story." We also put the film on our "13 Films to See in August" list, and now we're here to help you do just that.

A film that first astounded and terrified us when we saw it at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, and has shaken nearly every team member at The Playlist who's caught up with it since, Joshua Oppenheimer's documentary "The Act Of Killing" is one of the most unforgettable cinematic experiences you'll have this year. And with the movie expanding this past weekend to even more cities, we have a special prize for those equally taken with the film or anyone who is a die hard Herzog fan.

"If you ride like lightning, you're going to crash like thunder," Ryan Gosling is warned in "The Place Beyond The Pines." And in his reteam with "Blue Valentine" director Derek Cianfrance, that phrase is one that echoes through generations, in a epic film about legacy, loss and the sins of the father. The film, which premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, opened in cinemas this past spring and did brisk business, but if it didn't make it to your town or somehow you didn't manage to see it, we've got a treat....

What you likely already know is that later this year, Vince Vaughn will star in "Delivery Man," his latest mix of comedy of drama that co-stars Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders and more. What you might not know is that the movie is a remake, based on the 2011 smash hit Quebecois film "Starbuck." But if you want to see what Vaughn is up against, we've got a treat for your today.

Twixt Elle Fanning
The last time Francis Ford Coppola delved into horror it was with "Bram Stoker's Dracula," a lush and visually ambitious take on the legend. That was over twenty years ago but the filmmaker has recently returned to the genre with "Twixt" and we'd bet that, given it's very limited theatrical showings, you haven't seen it yet. Well, we've got a few copies of the movie on Blu-ray to help you fill that cinematic gap.

Trance, James McAvoy
Whether a survival story with one man forced to literally cut himself free, a romantic slumdog fantasy or the tales of a bunch of young degenerates living life right to the blistering edges, few filmmakers can take you on a journey like Danny Boyle, and this past spring, he did it again with "Trance."
