One of the highlights of the Disney Animation panel at this year's D23 Expo was getting a chance to watch the first ten minutes of the upcoming Halloween special "Toy Story of Terror" (sorry, that-scene-from-"Planes: Fire and Rescue"). Even though the footage was somewhat rough (and temped with music from "Ed Wood," which was actually kind of neat), it was totally compelling. Instead of being an anthology piece, like the recent "Shrek" Halloween special (and countless "Treehouse of Horror" episodes of "The Simpsons"), it assumes a single narrative thread, appropriating the "spooky motel" conceit of "Psycho" and "Vacancy," as an unseen malevolent force hunts hunt our toys after Bonnie's family stops at a roadside inn on a dark and stormy night. Now a new trailer has been released for the 30-minute-special, so you too can get spookily excited.

Has the landrush to make movies based on the Beat Generation actually amount to anything? Last year, Walter Salles' star-laden "On The Road" barely made a dent, while the forthcoming "Kill Your Darlings" boasting an equally compelling ensemble — Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen, Ben Foster, David Cross, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Jason Leigh — certainly can't do worse. But whether or not it takes off, enthusiasts of the Beats will keep having more movies to choose from as "Big Sur" is also the way.

Gotta admit, we sort of totally forgot about this movie entirely. After playing TIFF to rather muted notice last fall, and being released all over the place elsewhere in the world, Mike Newell's "Great Expectations" is finally seeing release in stateside theaters. And well, it's certainly very costume drama-esque as you might expect.

Do you let your old man live out his lingering dream and delusion, even if it means turning the small world he inhabits upside down?

Though "Blue Is The Warmest Color" will still emerge as the most talked about lesbian drama of the year by a wide margin, it isn't the only same-sex relationship movie taking it off and getting it on. Earlier in the year, it was a different movie earning all the attention, with Stacie Passon's "Concussion" making waves at Sundance before going on to win the Teddy Jury Award at the Berlin Film Festival. And now, it's headed to theaters and this brand new trailer makes no mistake about what's in store.

While certain Oscar prognosticators have already called the awards season race over and given all the awards to "12 Years A Slave," there is still months to go and lots of pictures to come into play, and one that has been behind the curtain thus far is "Grace Of Monaco." Skipping the fall festival circuit, the latest effort from "La Vie En Rose" helmer Olivier Dahan tackles another historic figure, this time from the movie world, although in tale that has little to do with the action on set. And now we have our first look.

It seems every few months comes another movie about celebrity obsession and/or the perils of being on the internet, and very few have anything original to say. Which brings us to "Open Windows," an upcoming thriller that looks like a remake of "Getaway" with a laptop instead of a car.

Grudge Match, De Niro, Stallone, Kevin Hart
Well, we'll give the trailer for "Grudge Match" this much credit: for a premise that could so easily devolve into Rocky vs. Jake LaMotta gags, there's only one direct reference to Sylvester Stallone's franchise and it's actually tolerable and tasteful. So kudos. As for the rest?
