Penny Dreadful Eva Green
As many thinkpieces and industry veterans have no doubt told you, the small screen—both on actual television and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon—is where the future of mature and thoughtful storytelling lies. Naturally, many filmmakers have migrated over from the big screen world and that trend continues into the next year with filmmakers like Cary Fukunaga and Sam Mendes.

Blended Drew Barrymore Adam Sandler
Oh, the perils of being a female filmmaker in Hollywood. Finally making her directorial debut after a lifetime in front of the camera with 2009’s charming “Whip It,” Drew Barrymore has struggled to launch a feature length follow-up and though she is returning to the romantic comedy well, it’s not in the manner one would hope.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
We'll be the first to admit that prior to "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" we were basically expecting something along the lines of this. But Rupert Wyatt defied expectations, and the rather limp marketing campaign, and delivered one of the most satisfying summer movies in years. His effort was lean, smart and a riff on an existing franchise that felt fresh, without ever being too self-serious. In short, it was a success. But can Matt Reeves—who also worked the impossible with his excellent "Let Me In," a remake of the already solid "Let The Right One In"—pick up the ball and run with it? We're about to find out.

The Double
The pleasures to be found in Richard Ayoade's upcoming "The Double" go far beyond Jesse Eisenberg's dual performance that powers the movie. From the great score by Andrew Hewitt, to the production design from David Crank, every inch of the "Submarine" director's film has been carefully considered and thought through. That it all comes together as a near flawless steampunk comedy/romance/thriller is the icing on the cake.

So, a concert pianist who's suffering from stage fright makes his comeback after a five-year hiatus with a concert, only to find a note on his sheet music, threatening his life if he plays a single note wrong. Such is the premise for "Grand Piano," an upcoming thriller starring Elijah Wood. But lest you think this is a genre exercise without a brain, guess again.

The Knick Clive Owen
A yearender in TV-land is a few minutes of clips and bits that channels throw together come December to remind you what-all awesome things you saw on their screen this year and what-all further awesome things are coming your way in the next one (assuming you renew, hint hint). Behold, then, those of HBO and Cinemax: a study in contrasts.

The Art Of The Steal Jay Baruchel
TIFF comes and TIFF goes and there are lots of movies that due to scheduling, the need for sleep and the necessity of food, just don't get in front of our eyes. And this year, one of them was "The Art Of The Steal" which brings together the ragtag crew of Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Matt Dillon and more for a heist comedy. We like heists (check out this feature), we like comedy, but does this work?

Rob The Mob
Michael Pitt, sitcom star Ray Romano, Andy Garcia, Broadway sensation Nina Arianda....wait, what? Yeah, the cast for "Rob The Mob" is a bit all over the place, and even the title is a bit too cutesy but you have to admit, the trailer for this looks far more interesting, particularly as it keeps going, more than you would have previously thought possible.

22 Jump Street
Ordinarily, we're wary of sequels especially for comedies (we love you Will Ferrell, but "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" has a huge bar to hit), but we'll say this: the first red band trailer for "22 Jump Street" made us laugh. A lot.
