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).

Playing in limited release right now is the rather excellent documentary, "The Trials Of Muhammad Ali" (our review), which gives a fascinating, in depth look at the legal battles the fighter faced, including his highly publicized decision to claim conscientious objector status when drafted for the Vietnam War. It was a position that seriously threatened his livelihood, and made him an easy target from all sides; the true story itself is hugely dramatic and compelling. But if you'd rather see a movie with actors telling the tale, well, there's "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight."

It’s been seven years since Jonathan Levine’s directorial debut “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. In that time, Levine delivered three more directorial outings—“The Wackness,” “50/50” and “Warm Bodies”—while his first film sat gathering dust on the proverbial shelf. This year The Weinstein Company’s genre shingle Radius landed the rights—nearly a decade since its parent company first bought the film—and it will now finally see a release this fall. A proper release begets a proper advertising campaign, so the studio has released a brand new trailer through CraveOnline.

There are lots of movies coming this fall, dripping with heavy drama and intense themes, but sometimes you just need to escape. And from the first glances at "Notting Hill" and "Venus" director Roger Michell's "Le Week-End," this could be exactly the kind of feel-good medicine audiences will go for. A romance with a couple of older charmers set in Paris? It almost sounds a bit too on the nose, and certainly the first trailer and clip aren't subtle, but if brewed right it could be a worthwhile concoction.

When are North American audiences going to have a chance to get dirty with "Filth"? While the adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel is gearing up for release overseas, there's no hint of it on the fall festival slate stateside, or even the whisper of a distributor. So we'll just have to keep looking at it from afar, and waiting to find out when we'll get our shot.

Inside Llewyn Davis
Here's a bit of a warning before you watch this latest trailer for the Coen Brothers' marvelous "Inside Llewyn Davis"—it's not exactly spoiler heavy, but there are some revelations that are best experienced completely cold. That being said, if you just can't resist, the movie certainly won't be ruined for you, and this latest spot does a solid job at capturing the irresistible blend of drama and morose humour the sibling directors have perfected over their career.
