What happened to our sweet Amelie? Audrey Tautou, who can usually be relied upon to look adorkable, proceeding to melt you into a puddle with little more than a coy look and a smile, puts away the pixie charm in "Therese" and gets ready to kill. Really.

The Bastards, Claire Denis
Leaving the beautiful, long-take photography characteristic of her past celebrated films for crudely edited, cheap-looking digital video and jumping headlong into the revenge thriller drama, Claire Denis' "The Bastards" was eye opener when it hit Cannes last month in more ways than one. And it's been hard to describe for those who haven't seen it, but now a new French trailer is here to give fans of the filmmaker a taste of the direction she's gone in.

We've seen countless horror movies come down the line in recent years "based on" or "inspired by" a true story. But we've never quite seen the actual real people behind the stories get involved in the marketing of the movie. Well, nothing stays the same, and with James Wan's "The Conjuring" coming in a few short weeks, Warner Bros. has got the actual family out to let audiences know: yes, this really did happen to them.

Prisoners, hugh jackman
It can be easy to forget what a drama looks like in the midst of the various 3D, speaking jacking, CGI, eyeball fuckfests at the multiplex of summer. But then something like this comes along and reminds you there is relief coming, in just a few short months.

"But it's supposed to be dumb!" certain audiences cry, when defending whatever dim action movie is causing chatter, which this week is "White House Down." While we hoped it would qualify as dumb yet awesome, it's just plain awful, with a self-seriousness that extinguishes whatever fun it might be trying to have with the genre. And yeah, we'd reckon the same applies to this latest offering from Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzene

The pain of love and the strains of fidelity seem to be recurring themes in the burgeoning career of filmmaker Drake Doremus. He burst onto the scene with the long distance romancer "Like Crazy," turned an Intel/Toshiba promo opportunity into the web series "The Beauty Inside" (watch it here) and now returns to the bruising pangs of love with "Breathe In." And the first trailer is here to provide a window into what he's conjured for his latest.

Who would have thought that sex addiction would become kind of... passé? Once a sort of taboo disease that made great fodder for tabloid talk shows, it's now positively mainstream, sitting alongside alcohol and drug addition as a treatable affliction you can learn to live with, with most folks now having a better understanding of what it's all about. But the movie world has yet to truly tackle the subject ("Shame" being one of the most high profile in recent years), but "Thanks For Sharing" will take a stab at it.

The Counselor, skip
Has Ridley Scott been watching Michael Bay movies? We can't remember the last time the veteran director delivered something this aesthetically slick and glossy, and it's an interesting veneer to add to what sounds like a gritty as fuck crime pic. Strap in, because the first international teaser trailer for "The Counselor" is here.

For those of you who have been reading us for a while, you might remember that way back in the day, we did a two part feature on omnibus films, and basically it boils down to this: by their very nature, with numerous directors and actors taking part, it's very rare for these kinds of movies to work as a whole. Some segments will be great, while others will miss the mark, but the ambition is always admirable. Which is why we're keeping an eye on "The Turning," a movie we nearly forgot about.
