By the time Jonathan Gurfinkel's "S#x Acts" hit the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, it was already on a roll. The provocative Iraseli drama had already taken awards at the Haifa International Festival and San Sebastian International Film Festival, and while it didn't pick up any hardware at Tribeca, it certainly left an impression. Our own Gabe Toro noted the "heartbreaking power" of the film and it's a picture we cited as among the best and brightest Tribeca served up this year. So yes, this is one to put on your radar to watch before the end of 2013.

Lone Survivor
Peter Berg's "Lone Survivor" starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana was a bit of a question mark earlier in the year, but it's already already garnering positive survival narrative comparisons to solid pictures that have already screened this year like "Gravity," "Captain Phillips," "All Is Lost" and "12 Years A Slave" (that's pretty terrific company to be in).

While we might come off as Snooty McHighFaultinPants from time-to-time, the truth is we here at The Playlist love (well done) dumb fun as much as the next person. And it's safe to say, we're totally going to watch the shit out of "Ride Along."

Robocop, 2014
While we didn't necessarily want this remake, it has been made, and we have to admit, we're intrigued by "RoboCop." The talent for this is certainly undeniable with "Elite Squad" helmer Jose Padilha guiding a helluva cast—Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel and Samuel L. Jackson—through futuristic Detroit. But can it even begin to come close to Paul Verhoeven's twisted perfection? Well, this new trailer is going to make a case for it.

Winter's Tale
Long considered unfilmable, Mark Helprin's novel "Winter's Tale" has been kicking around Hollywood waiting for someone to take it on. And that someone is Akiva Goldsman, the blockbuster producer ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," "I Am Legend") has written the adaptation and is making his feature debut with the flick. And full credit to him, with the first trailer arriving this evening, it looks like he's poured all he's got into it.

With festival season segueing into Oscar season, the remaining films traveling the festival circuit are slowly making their way into distribution and eventual release. One standout that we caught up with at Karlovy Vary earlier this summer was British director Clio Barnard’s second feature, “The Selfish Giant.” The tale of a troubled young boy (Conor Chapman) and his best friend (Shawn Thomas) got a glowing “B+” review from our own Jessica Kiang who praised its power and lyricism.

It's been well over a year since Michael Winterbotton's ambitious drama "Everyday" premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals, but the gritty drama is now finding its way stateside with a proper release. And with it comes the first trailer for the movie, which makes it look well worth tracking down.

In 2011, a mostly unknown dude named Gareth Evans arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival with a movie called "The Raid." And by the time the lights came up after the first screening, everyone not only knew his name, but the buzz was deafening. The unrelenting action flick quickly became a cult fave, and even though it only topped $4 million worldwide, the enthusiasm was enough to get a sequel greenlit. And so here we are with the first trailer for "The Raid 2: Berandal," so strap in.

You really can't keep a good Steven Soderbergh down. Supposedly retired from directing after “Behind The Candelabra”, the hyperactive movie-maker is using his time off to lend his name to worthy cinematic projects, and none worthier than “Visitors,” which is to be “presented by” Soderbergh, and for which a new trailer has arrived below.
