Before I Go To Sleep
The elusive nature of memory can certainly be good fodder for drama. The idea of things remembered, forgotten or selectively recalled motivating the actions of a character is rich territory, but unfortunately, it doesn't really seem to be put to good effect in the forthcoming "Before I Go To Sleep," even when navigated by a cast like this.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2
It turns out John Cusack can turn down movies. More on that in a second. Starring the rat tag utterly motley crew cast of Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke, no one in a million years dreamed that 2010's "Hot Tub Time Machine" was going to be a hit, let alone a pretty funny and a pretty good comedy. It beat the odds, and as directed by Steve Pink (co-writer of “Grosse Pointe Blank” and “High Fidelity”) it delivered ridiculous, vulgar and absurd laughs. As silly as the premise was, hell, it worked.

Whiplash
A movie about jazz drumming doesn't immediately sell itself as the most dazzlingly engaging prospect. However, writer/director Damien Chazelle has put together something truly exciting with "Whiplash," which created a buzz at Sundance, continued the noise at Cannes Directors' Fortnight, and is now heading to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will likely continue the beat of strong praise from critics.

It's like the metaphorical third date today for "Fifty Shades Of Grey" fans. The erotic bestseller is gearing up to hit a multiplex near you, and the first trailer has arrived today to give everyone a peek under the sheets (sorry) at what Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele will be getting up to.

The Cut Tahar Rahim
Some slight waves were made earlier this year when Fatih Akin pulled his forthcoming "The Cut" from the Cannes Film Festival citing "personal reasons." So we figured the movie would wind up somewhere else on the 2014 fall festival slate, and indeed, it's now at Venice and the first trailer has arrive.

The Young Ones
It’s a dystopian near-future. Water has run dry, America’s in a debilitating drought. That’s what sets the stage for Jake Paltrow’s new picture “Young Ones.” But it’s actually from many accounts, including our own review, more of a morality drama with a patriarchal struggle for power. The movie stars Michael Shannon as a father trying to protect his land in family. His children are played by Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Nicholas Hoult plays a young man with his eye on more than just the previous land the father owns.

The November Man
For actors of a certain age, gritty action flicks are their new bread and butter, and Hollywood and audiences can't seem to get enough of dudes who look too old to be kicking ass, actually kicking ass. And so former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, will bring his special set of skills back to the big screen in "The November Man." And a new trailer is here for you to see how they're still holding up.

Ned Rifle, Hal Hartley, Aubrey Plaza
In 1997, Hal Hartley released "Henry Fool," one of the best films of his career, but no one seemed to notice, even though it won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes. But Hartley knew he had something with the characters and world he created and in 2007 he dropped a sequel, "Fay Grim." It was far less satisfying than its predecessor, but now in 2014 he's capping the trilogy with "Ned Rifle," and hopefully it will close the series on an up note.
