There are a number of high-profile classic literary adaptations coming out in the next few months, including (but not limited to) Joe Wright's stage-bound "Anna Karenina," Mike Newell's stately "Great Expectations," and "Fish Tank" director Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights." We're not sure why people aren't really talking about Arnold's adaptation -- it was one of the absolute highlights of Venice last year for us -- but hopefully after this new trailer (courtesy of Vulture), they will be.

Among some higher profile competition, one of our editor-in-chief's favorite films from his time in Telluride last weekend turned out to be "Ginger & Rosa," a coming-of-age tale from director Sally Potter ("Orlando"). Probably the most accessible film to date from a filmmaker whose last picture was shot on a cellphone (2009's "Rage"), it's a Bildungsroman set in 1960s Britain with Elle Fanning and newcomer Alice Englert (the daughter of Jane Campion) as two best friends discovering protest, sex and betrayal together. With Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, Jodhi May and Annette Bening among the top-notch supporting cast, it was the best little surprise of the festival, a film that's "lovely and devastating, challenging yet worthwhile."

Of all the 150 or so world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival, which is getting underway as we speak, the one we're perhaps most curious about is "Cloud Atlas." An epic adaptation from the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer of David Mitchell's excellent best-seller, the film spans thousands of years, with six separate storylines featuring an all-star cast of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw, Jim Sturgess, Jim Broadbent, Doona Bae, James D'Arcy, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Keith David, Susan Sarandon and more, playing multiple roles of different genders and races in a genre-hopping, independently produced epic.

Starring Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch, the Italian-made picture "Twice Born" isn't on everyone's radar just yet, perhaps because it's an internationally produced picture. But that may be about to change, as the film is debuting at the Toronto Film Festival later this week.

Watch: Trailer For Barry Levinson's Horror Flick 'The Bay' Will Give You The Heebie Jeebies

Whoa. We were expecting the Barry Levinson-directed found footage eco-horror flick "The Bay," produced by the "Paranormal Activity" team of Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Steven Schneider, to be something of a mild curiosity. After all, the 70-year-old director of "Diner" (which Vanity Fair recently profiled on its thirty year anniversary), hasn't had a truly buzz-worthy movie in a while, and the other movie made with the 'Paranormal' team around the same time (Rob Zombie's "Lords of Salem") hasn't even been picked up for distribution yet. Well, after watching the trailer we're more than intrigued, we're ready to pre-order our tickets now.

"Taken" was an unexpected hit when it was released in 2008, turning formerly serious actor Liam Neeson into an unlikely action icon and legitimizing (to a degree, at least), French filmmaker Luc Besson's place as a kind of Euro-trash Roger Corman. Well, a sequel has finally been shaped, all these years later, and based on the latest "internet trailer" (complete with winky Neeson introduction), it looks like it's keen to recapture the same junky fun of the original.

Sorry, but every time we hear "Hansel" all we can think of is Will Ferrell following it up with "So hot right now." But whether or not the delayed "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" is "hot" remains to be seen, but judging from this first trailer we're thinking....not.

Over the net few weeks, as films begin to unspool in Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York, we'll be beginning to see which films will rise up as awards season contenders, and which will slip away. One film everyone agrees will be in the mix in a big way is Jacques Audiard's "Rust And Bone." After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this spring, the film hits Toronto this month before arriving in theaters this fall, and a new U.K. trailer is here to remind you this is one to watch.

After premiring at the Cannes Film Festival in May, next month, Walter Salles' "On the Road" will go for round two on the festival circuit as it will arrive at TIFF in a new recut and shorter version of the film. Whether this will solve any of the problems of the film, which according to this writer, was a rather listless pace and inability to capture the adventurer's spirit, the new trailer for the movie is certainly much more upbeat.

In "This Must Be the Place," Sean Penn plays a faded goth rock star named Cheyenne. If that alone doesn't make you chuffed to see this, you can pretty much stop reading right here. But for the rest of us, after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival way back in 2011, the latest from "Il Divo" director Paolo Sorrentino now has a new trailer, and no matter the mixed reviews out of the Croisette, we're kinda dying to see this.
