If there is anything we have learned post-9/11 is that the spectre of threat and the presence of fear can arrive from completely unexpected places. The face of terrorism has moved beyond cliché, with those wishing to lash out for whatever reasons coming from backgrounds that are surprisingly diverse. And it's against this backdrop that "Torn" unfolds.

Director Sylvain Chomet holds the distinction of helming two of the most visually and narratively wondrous animated films in recent decades; 2003's Oscar-nominated “The Triplets of Belleville” and 2010's “The Illusionist,” both of which pay tribute to silent cinema in their own unique ways — the latter even took up an unproduced script by the legendary Jacques Tati. Now Chomet is looking to replicate that success in a live-action setting with “Atilla Marcel,” for which we've just got the first trailer, before the film begins its festival run this week.

This has been a good week for cult-'70s fans. Over in Venice, William Friedkin is presenting his freshly restored thriller "Sorcerer," and news arrived just a couple of days ago that "The Wicker Man: The Final Cut" would be headed to U.S. cinemas via Rialto Pictures. And while we wait for the campaign to mount on this side of the ocean, over in the U.K. StudioCanal have already started reminding everyone that they have to see it, whether it's for the first time or again

What did people do before the internet? Even if you can't make it to Venice, Telluride or TIFF, we live in an age where you can get instant reactions, early looks and more from pretty much every movie making a premiere to at least get a taste of what's on offer. And so, this evening comes the first trailer for "Palo Alto," and you know what? We're kinda pleasantly surprised.

Back in the spring, James Franco hit Cannes with "As I Lay Dying," an experimental drama and adaptation of William Faulkner's book that utilized all kinds of split-screen to surprisingly decent effect, even if the movie as a whole didn't amount to much more than a curiosity. Whether that latter charge will be true or not on his forthcoming "Child Of God" remains to be seen, but we now have a very brief taste.

Whoa! The long delayed, production troubled "47 Ronin" is actually getting released, and the big question is whether or not it can rebound from its not so pleasant past to pull a "World War Z" and land on its feet. It arguably has a harder hill to climb, lacking a Brad Pitt-esque lead (though Keanu Reeves is no slouch) or easily digestible plot (gotta be honest, we still kinda have no clue what the fuck is going on in this thing). But maybe the razzle dazzle will be enough to part holiday moviegoers with grandma's gift money.

With a new “Paranormal Activity” entry not arriving until next year, this fall looks to be devoid of any scares that audiences flock to as the nights grow longer. That’s where the Sundance and Cannes Directors’ Fortnight entry, “We Are What We Are,” comes in. IGN has dropped the moody first trailer for the English-language remake and it looks to live up to its promise.

Over the past few years it seems that we’ve seen more and more omnibus films, from arty travelogues (“Paris, je t’aime”) to horror (“The ABCs of Death”). What sets “The Turning” apart, however, is that it’s an adaptation of the Tim Winton novel of the same name. While we’ve already seen a teaser for the film, and now a full length trailer has arrived for the effort.

While the internet heart attack over the the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in "Superman Vs. Batman" has subsided (at least until the first image of him in costume arrives), attention in recent hours/days has turned to do who will play the presumed villain Lex Luthor. Rumors circulated that it would be "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, with Mark Strong also suggested to be reprising his role as Sinestro from "Green Lantern." The former has been debunked and the latter seems like a lot of hooey, so while nerds continue to worry about an Affleck-led DC Comics movie future, some others are being a bit more enterprising.

All right, all right, all right... Matthew McConaughey is ready to wow the critics again in 2013, after spending last year proving to everyone he was more than just a pretty rom-com face. But will he get the hardware this time to go with the acclaim? Well, he's taking on the double duty of both a physical transformation and playing a man stricken with A.I.D.S. in "Dallas Buyer's Club," with the first trailer now landing online (mostly).
