Your film stars a who’s who of young, on-the-rise actors who carry brand name recognition within the independent film world: Michael Cera (“Arrested Development”), talented and versatile British actress Juno Temple (“Killer Joe," “Jack And Diane," “The Dark Knight Rises,"“The Three Musketeers,” Emily Browning (“Sucker Punch,” "Sleeping Beauty") and Catalina Sandino Moreno (breakthrough actress and star of “Maria Full of Grace”). Your filmmaker, Sebastián Silva, is the celebrated director behind of 2009’s excellent indie “The Maid” (Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner) , your cinematographer, Christopher Doyle, is well regarded as one of the most excellent DPs on the planet and your film debuts at the prestigious 2013 Sundance Film Festival. So, bearing all those talented riches in mind, your movie goes straight to DVD...why exactly?

It premiered at Sundance earlier this year and played at the Directors' Fortnight last month at Cannes, but it seems Sebastian Silva’s “Magic Magic” will not be playing at a theater near you. Instead, it’s going straight to DVD. What’s up with that? Either way, the first official trailer for the psychological thriller has just been posted online, giving you a taste of what the film’s all about.

So, Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch has made a movie, and will it be as aw shucks whimsical as the albums he's released? Judging by the first images from the movie, the answer appears to yes. And that just seems fine to us, because if you're a fan of the man's work already, a cast of good looking young leads in school uniforms and vintage clothes pretty much hits the bullseye.

Well, here's something of a different flavor for those of you perhaps already exhausted (or preparing to be exhausted) by summer movie madness. A period drama, based on an acclaimed novel, featuring some solid actors, all against a windswept UK backdrop -- do you like the sound of that? Well, keep reading on...

'Sucker Punch' Star Emily Browning Climbs Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Pompeii'

What a difference a “W.S.” makes. From the sublimely gifted to the ridiculously not-so, Andersons Paul Thomas and Paul W.S. share little beyond twinned SEO credentials (fortuitous for W.S., less so for Thomas) and the memory of being picked on at the top of the school register. Having last delivered us the aptly masterful “The Master,” and “Resident Evil: Retribution” (retribution, presumably, for its unwitting audience) respectively, news of a forthcoming Anderson picture could spell delight or “dear God, no” for film fans. Regrettably, this story concerns the latter, lesser, Anderson.

While Michael Cera will return to your computer in his most beloved role as George-Michael Bluth in the next season of "Arrested Development," he's always been eager to break out of that mold. And while "Youth In Revolt" was a (half) attempt to do that, his next effort will certainly find him in different waters. And with a different haircut.

It was perhaps inevitable that Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian was going to move into filmmaking. For anyone who has followed the band over the years, you know that each album has usually arrived with an extensive story build around it, with appropriately theatrical artwork to go with it. Well, following a Kickstarter campaign and with the support of "Rushmore" producer Barry Mendel, the pieces all came together this spring for "God Help The Girl" with Elle Fanning and Brit actor Olly Alexander nabbing roles, but it looks like with production set to get underway, some changes have been made.

We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have worked out. But another capable star is looking to come off the bench and sub in.

The unnecessary-but-it's-happening-anyway remake of "Carrie" over at MGM continues to move forward. At the beginning of the year, a random, but kind of inspired decision was made to have Kimberly Peirce sit in the director's chair, and now it seems a gaggle of young Hollywood talent is circling the title role.
