The Unknown Known, Errol Morris
With screenings at Venice, Telluride and TIFF last year, it speaks to the reputation of Errol Morris that three of the major fall film festivals played host to his latest film, "The Unknown Known." And it's hard to argue why programmers were interested. Not only is it the new film from a master documentary filmmaker, it tackles one of the most divisive, polarizing and controversial figures in American politics over the last few decades: Donald Rumsfeld.

Don Peyote Anne Hathaway
Well, we'll give co-writer/director Dan Fogler credit for this: he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex. Ordinarily, we probably wouldn't pay a movie titled "Don Peyote" much mind, but when it manages to rope in a rather oddball assortment of people for cameo roles, well, we gave more time out of day than we otherwise would have.

Woody Allen might be nearing the age of 80, but his creative output has not slowed down one bit. but what has slowed down, considerably, are his on-screen appearances. Since 2004, he’s directed ten films and has just finished production on his eleventh (“Magic in the Moonlight”), but he has only starred in two of them (“Scoop," “To Rome With Love”). So, when it was first discovered that he would be co-starring with John Turturro in “Fading Gigolo,” we were delightfully surprised. Not only is it just his second acting gig in eight years, but also his first film appearance since 2000 of which he has not directed himself.

True Detective
"This is a world where nothing is solved," Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle declares in this new trailer for "True Detective." And it might seem an odd choice of words for a series built around a mystery that spans years, also ensnaring fellow detective Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), but that's just a jumping off point. Written by Nic Pizzolatto, and directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre," "Jane Eyre") the series will use a serious crime to deal with themes of death and darkness.

Snow Piercer, Chris Evans
One of the biggest news stories of 2013 was undoubtedly the still-unresolved battle between Harvey Weinstein and Bong Joon-ho over "Snowpiercer." While the apocalyptic thriller has won awards and taken big box office overseas, Harv wants to re-edit the film so it plays to folks in Middle America, while the director wants to keep the movie he made intact. And while the picture was listed among The 21 Best Films Of 2014 We've Already Seen, it's technically still without a release date in the U.S. while abroad, it continues to roll out.

Tomorrow Night
While "Pootie Tang" is the directorial feature film that everyone likes to talk about when it comes to Louis C.K., that comedy wasn't his first time at the rodeo. Three years earlier, in 1998, Louis C.K. went to the Sundance Film Festival with his debut feature "Tomorrow Night," where it premiered, only to remain unreleased ever since. But this won't be his "The Day The Clown Cried." Instead, Louis C.K. is self-releasing the movie, and there's no better time to catch up with trailer which has been knocking around the internet for a while now.

The Red Road
While HBO and AMC tend to get all the Golden Age Of TV glory, it might be time to start including Sundance Channel in the mix. Last year's "Top Of The Lake" was one of the best things we saw on either the big or small screen, and if the first teaser for "The Red Road" is anything to go by, it's going to be another fascinating, layered drama. And hell, we'll be watching simply because James Gray directed the first episode of the six episode long season.

I Put A Hit On You
The names might not be as big, and the swag bags not nearly as bursting, but as the more rebellious cousin to the bigger Sundance Film Festival, the lineup at the Slamdance Film Festival brings with it films and filmmakers creating inventive movies with fewer resources. And that means the films tend to be infused with a more playful spirit, and that feeling is certainly evident in this exclusive trailer for "I Put A Hit On You."

"Democracy is overrated," declares Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), and certainly in "House Of Cards," the machinations of the White House have little to do with the power of the ballot. And if you thought the stakes were high and the drama was intense in the first season, apparently, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Kite
There are a lot of movies coming in 2014, but one you might have unfortunately forgotten about is "Kite." Why should you keep this one on your radar? Well, it's an adaptation of an anime that is renowned for it's rather graphic sexuality, and not only does Samuel L. Jackson star in the movie, he's a big fan of the material as well, which hopefully means this version will retain some of the spirit of the source material.
