Man, Jeff Bridges sure has been slumming it lately. Okay, he suited up wonderfully for "True Grit," but the past few years have mostly seen him sleepwalk through "Tron: Legacy," next weekend's sure to be terrible "R.I.P.D." and next this sure to be turd-tacular "Seventh Son." (Those paychecks must be nice though). Originally slated to be released in February and then this fall, Warner Bros. recently pushed the movie yet again, this time to next January. The last time they did something similar was for one of this year's worst movies, "Gangster Squad." Do the math.

Filth James McAvoy
While the much-discussed "Trainspotting" sequel remains a distant hope -- not shooting until 2016 at least, if it all comes together -- there's another Irvine Welsh adaptation coming along that should provide ample booze, pills, sex, general raunchiness and moral depravity to fill any need you might have. "Filth" has dropped yet another red band trailer and it continues to look perfectly wrong and outrageous.

A young woman who discovered sexual pleasure and found a unique place in the world? A naive soul manipulated into performing graphic sexual acts on camera for the gratification of men? Somewhere in between? Linda Lovelace occupies a special place in the pop culture sphere and her story is fascinating and lurid one, and it's coming to the big screen in "Howl" director Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman‘s biopic "Lovelace." After a U.S. trailer last week, a spot from overseas opens up with lots more footage.

It’s been nine years since we last saw Chucky, and since making his debut in “Child’s Play” in 1988, he's cornered the market on killer pint-sized dolls. Sure there have been other contenders for the title like “Puppet Master” or “Demonic Toys,” but they never had the same absurd charm as Chucky. And while his later films were laugh-out-loud bad, his presence has been sorely missed in the horror community. However, if history has taught us anything, it’s that you can’t keep a good horror villain down for long and Chucky is no different. The killer doll is making his grand return later this year in “Curse of Chucky” and we have the first trailer down below.

So yeah, January Jones is leading a western and don't worry if you forgot about it. In fact, the film titled "Sweetwater" (though it seems to be going as "Sweet Vengeance" in some territories) even premiered at Sundance back in January, but the reception was so muted (some folks have told us it was awful) that the movie is still without a U.S. distributor. But international openings await, and thus we have our first trailer.

Sometimes life knocks you down, you have to move back in with your parents and get a job as a lifeguard. Okay, so maybe that's not the trajectory most trouble young folks take, but in "The Lifeguard," it's the path that Leigh, played by Kristen Bell, takes in the feature debut from writer/director Liz W. Garcia ("Wonderfalls,""Cold Case").

Austenland
The goal of finding the perfect man seems to be the driving force for most run-of-the-mill romantic comedies, but it's given a bit of a twist in "Austenland," the feature debut of “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Nacho Libre” co-writer Jerusha Hess. You see, the perfect man in this movie isn't exactly real but he is famous... he's Mr. Darcy, the heartthrob in Jane Austen's "Pride And Prejudice"... Really....

You would think that legends like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton deserve better treatment that kind of cheap, cranked out TV biopics, but we guess not. They aren't superheroes.... Last fall, we saw Lindsay Lohan and That Other Guy do their thing in the roundly derided Lifetime effort "Liz & Dick." Now the Brits are having a go at it with "Burton & Taylor" but at least they're bringing some classier people along for the ride.

Jean-Luc Godard Goes 3D: Watch Trailers For ‘Adieu Au Langage’ & Omnibus '3X3D'

Far from his days as the hip director at the forefront of the French New Wave, for the better part of a few decades, Jean-Luc Godard has pretty much gone his own way. Hell, dude even gave the Academy the middle finger, essentially, turning down the Academy after they tried to give him an honorary Oscar a few years ago. But his adventurous spirit is still in full force, and the 82-year-old filmmaker has now embraced 3D, but of course, the results are not your average CGI explosion fest.

New Trailer & Featurettes For From Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer'

Snowpiercer
Are you excited for Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"? Well, of course you are, but it's a bit of bummer for those of us stateside anticipating his star-studded, post-apocalyptic movie. While it gears up to open on August 1st in South Korea, U.S. distributors The Weinstein Company haven't even given the movie a date yet, and we'd wager at this point, it probably won't arrive in theaters until 2014. Fall festival apperances? Perhaps that will be in the cards, though the Weinsteins may also be too busy pushing their awards season slate, so you never know. Sigh. But at least there is still a lot we can look at until then...
