To say that this movie isn't exactly in our wheelhouse would be an understatement. The only time we've ever talked about "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" has been in a feature about unnecessary sequels, and another about whether or not video games can make good movies. But it doesn't matter what we think, because there is a core of fans who enjoyed the first movie for whatever merits it supposedly had, and pushed it to over $100 million worldwide. A brand is a brand, and thus we have a sequel on the way.

So are uplifting yet tragic surfing movies a thing now? Last year we got "Soul Surfer," the true story of a young woman who gets attacked by a shark while out on the water, loses an arm, finds God, and gets back on the board. And now, we're getting another wholesome slice of sadness in the form of "Chasing Mavericks," a movie that will make you feel good before dropping some heaviness on y'all.

When making a film about a seedier career path – for instance, stripping in Steven Soderbergh’s excellent summer fling “Magic Mike” – it’s important to approach the topic with a delicate and nuanced touch. Our writer on the scene at Berlinale 2012 didn’t exactly find that to be the case with porn career flick “About Cherry,” writing it off as a film that “tries hard to provoke us into reassessing the porn industry, but is so ham-fisted that the result is not a look on the bright side, but a whitewash.”

With a couple weeks to go before "The Campaign" hits theaters, the Warner Bros. marketing department is beginning the home stretch to get moviegoers to the ballot box box office for the Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis comedy. And they're now letting audiences see why the movie landed an R-rating.

Well, damn. After a prolonged period of radio silence, this week has seen a flurry of activity regarding "Cloud Atlas," the adaptation of David Mitchell's acclaimed best-seller by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski. On Tuesday, it was announced that the film would make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, yesterday saw the first images start to leak out, and overnight, the first trailer for the film leaked online (courtesy of JoBlo). And, boy, what a trailer.

As one-third of The Lonely Island, the comedy collective behind the SNL Digital Shorts, Akiva Schaffer (along with confederates Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone) efficiently optimized "Saturday Night Live," a flagging late night mainstay, into something vital and immediate. With the Digital Shorts format, placing an emphasis on music video rhythms and absurdity that bordered on the surreal, they re-contextualized the show into bite-size nuggets you could swap with friends or post on Facebook. But there's more to Schaffer than "Jizz in My Pants" (although, honestly, if that was the only thing he directed that'd still be pretty awesome).

One of the lesser-known films included in yesterday's TIFF line up announcement, that we are no less excited for, is Australian helmer Cate Shortland's sophomore directorial effort, "Lore." An adaptation of Rachel Seiffert's novella "The Dark Room," the German-language post-WWII road film stars newcomer Saskia Rosendahl as the daughter of an SS officer who must take her four siblings on a 900km journey across war-ravaged Germany to the safety of their grandparents' residence.

20th Century Fox has been taking an unconventional approach to themarketing for "Life Of Pi" so far. After a showing at CinemaCon that wowed delegates and press alike, the studio chose to eschew more traditional trailers in favor of showing three brief clips from Ang Lee's much-anticipated adaptation of Yann Martel's beloved best-seller in front of their big 3D summer releases, to emphasize the dimensionalized aspect of the picture. And so footage was shown in front of "Prometheus," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift." But they had to release something for a broader audience at some point, and unheralded, the first proper trailer for the film arrived online early this morning via Apple.
