Considering audiences will be getting a full nine minutes in front of IMAX screenings of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," maybe it makes sense that the rest us who aren't going to Peter Jackson's movie on opening weekend will have to be content with this one-minute announcement teaser for now.

Oh, so you thought the guy who made brain busting "Primer" in 2004 was going to go easy on his next effort out. Maybe a romantic comedy or a drama about a marriage falling apart...it is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival after all... But nah, Shane Carruth is ready to make you think hard once again.

Though we thought "Foxfire," the latest from Laurent Cantet (the director of arthouse hit and Cannes winner "The Class") might have made a bigger splash when it premiered at TIFF in the fall, it arrived and left with a bit of a whisper. The film is still without North American distribution, a bit of an oddity considering it's based on Joyce Carol Oates' classic book, but it is rolling out overseas and hopefully that will give someone the push to take it on.

Zombie fans have a lot to look foward to in February. Not only will "The Walking Dead" lurch back on to TV for the second half of season three (preview here) after a cliffhanger eighth episode last night, but another spin on the genre will arrive in the form of Jonathan Levine's "Warm Bodies."

Are you ready to tumble down into the mind of Charles Swan? Self-obsessed, selfish, a bit of trainwreck...undoubtedly there will be many making the Sheen/Swan connection, but if anything, the first trailer for "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" firmly establishes that this is very much a Roman Coppola movie.

Let the excitement/backlash begin. While certain corners of the Internet continue to bemoan the success of Lena Dunham, she's just brushing that dirt off her shoulder, as season two of "Girls" gets ready to return. And the first trailer is here to give a taste of what's in store.

As Miguel Gomes’ “Tabu” has worked its way around the festival circuit during the course of the year (and also during its theatrical release in a few lucky international markets) the critical acclaim it has garnered has been nothing short of stupendous. We were bowled over by it here at The Playlist when we caught it at TIFF, describing it as “charming, witty, beautifully shot and inexplicably captivating” and awarding it an A grade. Critics across the world seem to have been just as complimentary.

Many horror films have featured women in peril, but with Katie Aselton at the helm of "Black Rock," the meat-and-potatoes outsiders-vs.-locals thriller -- in the vein of films like “Deliverance” -- the picture is far more empowering and gives the female leads greater substance than other films of its ilk tend to do. Now, the first trailer for the Sundance film has landed online.

With the film now set to screen for critics this weekend, it looks like The Weintsein Company are now ready to go full throttle to the finish line as they gear up Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." The soundtrack details just dropped a moment ago, and right on its heels is a brand new trailer.

There are few projects in the history of cinema as ambitious or accomplished as Michael Apted's "Up" series. Started in 1964, the concept at first was to capture the socio-economic condition and how it affected children, but it soon turned into a decades-spanning look at life itself. Every seven years, Apted returned with this cameras to visit with the subjects of "7 Up," resulting in a portrait unlike anything else, an insightful look into a group of Britons growing from childhood into adulthood.
