Can we get a little shout out to Drafthouse Films? As the majors continue to put more money into big franchises (see everything being released in 2015), it's guys like Drafthouse (and A24, Roadside Attractions, IFC Films, etc.) that keep cinephiles excited. And in addition to taking on challenging foreign films and edgy American movies, Drafthouse has also resurrected cult fare as well. "Miami Connection," "Wake In Fright," and the forthcoming "The Visitor" are just some recent examples and there's one more to keep an eye on: Abel Ferrara's "Ms. 45."

Sabotage
After the flops "The Last Stand" and "Escape Plan," it's becoming a real question as to whether audiences want to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in anything that's not a pre-built franchise. But maybe surrounding him with a massive ensemble—Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Dawn Olivieri, Malin Akerman, Olivia Williams, Mirielle Enos and Josh Holloway—might get a few more people in the door.

The Invisible Woman
Whether or not "The Invisible Woman" can overcome respectable but not quite ecstatic notices out of Telluride and TIFF to become an awards season contender remains to be seen, but that doesn't mean there aren't surprises to be found in the film. As we noted earlier this afternoon in our For Your Consideration: 5 Overlooked Supporting Actresses Who Deserve Some Oscar Season Attention, one to pay attention to is Joanna Scanlan for her small, but important turn in the film.

You might think with no shortage of Jim Henson creations to choose from that a Muppets movie doesn't need star power to back it up. But cameos have been a staple of the franchise since the beginning and that's not stopping with the latest entry in the series, "Muppets Most Wanted."

A suitcase full of money, a crooked cop, a femme fatale and plans gone wrong... It sounds like something we've seen before, but with the usually solid Jason Clarke ("Lawless," "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Great Gatsby," "White House Down") in the lead, "Swerve" is one we'll definitely be checking out.

A case so multifaceted and controversial that four documentaries—The “Paradise Lost” trilogy and Amy Berg’s “West of Memphis”—have been produced to unpack it, the West Memphis Three killings have nevertheless gained their first fictional retelling courtesy of Atom Egoyan. As the “Sweet Hereafter” director’s drama premiered at TIFF this year (where it was picked up for distribution by Image Entertainment), it seems it may have benefited from letting non-fiction have its day—the film garnered quite a few unfavorable reviews, including ours—but now a new trailer and poster have hit the web to let those interested decide.

RoboCop
After two rather more uptempo trailers selling the familiar tale of "RoboCop" in a slick new package, a fresh international spot takes a more mournful tone, one that puts the emotional arc of the story first and the explosions second. And oh yeah, it features lots of new footage too.

It may have taken Guillermo Del Toro five years between "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" and this summer's "Pacific Rim," but the filmmaker isn't wasting a hot second as he heads in 2014. He'll kick off the year shooting "Crimson Peak" and by time the summer arrives he'll be on the small screen too.
