Oldboy
With Park Chan-wook's entire vengeance trilogy getting remade (“Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance” just nabbed a helmer, while "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance" starring Charlize Theron continues to develop), Spike Lee's stab at "Oldboy" will be first at the gate, and likely the most scrutinized. The original is beloved in many quarters, with fans openly wondering how this Hollywood take will deal with some of the darker corners of the South Korean version.

Homefront
James Franco has done many, many things in his career as an artist/writer/actor/director, but he's yet to cross action movie villain off his list. Well, until now. Finally, the definitive answer who is tougher—Franco or Jason Statham—will be answered in "Homefront," which boasts Sylvester Stallone as both writer and producer. You've been warned.

With production beginning in 2007, and premiering at the Venice Film Festival in 2009 (after being controversially rejected by Cannes), it has taken four years for Jaco Van Dormael's "Mr. Nobody" to secure a U.S. distributor and a release. (And we actually reviewed the movie when it opened in Canada three years ago). That should pretty much tell you all you need to know about this ambitious folly, but we reckon this new trailer does enough to showcase it's rather hokey conceit.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
"Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" premiered at TIFF last weekend, but if you didn't realize it, don't feel too badly. The first and only press on Saturday afternoon had the plug pulled after 45 minutes due to some technical errors, so when was it rescheduled for? 10:15 PM that night, and let's just say, the number of press who were eager to carve out time for a two-and-a-half-hour film, after an already packed day of movies, was pretty slim. We'll have our verdict soon, but until then, you can see a brand new trailer for the movie.

August: Osage County
With TIFF heading into its last few days, and NYFF around the corner, we're only at the start of the awards season, and Harvey Weinstein will be in full effect. This year in Toronto, he's been busy acquiring films and unveiling a small handful of movies, but one of most high profile was "August: Osage County."

Though Forest Whitaker looks he’s headed back to the Kodak Theater with the sincere “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” the Oscar-winning actor looks to be getting into rough-and-tumble mode with the Jérôme Salle-helmed “Zulu.” A French (and somewhat NSFW) trailer (via Shadow and Act) has arrived online for the South Africa-set crime thriller, and it looks like pretty compelling stuff. Watch it below.

Robocop
Well, here it is… After endless speculation and just as many snarky, internet-based remarks, the trailer for the remake of Paul Verhoeven's satirical masterpiece "RoboCop" is here. And it's… something alright.

Gravity, Sandra Bullock
It's probably safe to say that Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" is nothing short of a sensation. Premiering at Venice to rave reviews, sneaking into Telluride for more acclaim and now headed to TIFF, there hasn't been a lack of superlatives for the movie. Our own man on the Lido called it "a technical marvel, and it’s a blockbuster with heart and soul in spades" and the good news is, unlike a lot of movies hitting the fest circuit, you won't be waiting long for this one to play near you.

At the beginning of the month, a half uploaded teaser trailer for the Beat drama "Kill Your Darlings" made its way online and was summarily yanked, without anything else arriving in terms of promotional material. But the whole shebang has now broached the interwebs, unofficially it seems, and you can take a peek below (for now).

With TIFF getting ready to kick off in just over 24 hours, the final decisions on schedules are being made, and one that may be worth carving out some time for is Aaron Wilson's "Canopy." With a number of shorts and a documentary under his belt, this marks his feature debut, and it's an assured outing that takes a simple premise and turns it into a unique cinematic experience.
