You probably forgot, but way back in the ancient year of 2012, it was announced that Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia were teaming for a campus romance flick entitled "Admissions." Yes, it sounds very similar in name to "Admission" starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd which landed earlier this year, but now it has a new title and a fresh trailer, so you can see what it's all about.

Almost Human Karl Urban
Named as one of our 10 Most Promising Network Shows For Fall 2013, we have to admit a certain curiosity about the J.J. Abrams-produced "Almost Human" based on the premise alone. That, and it has the potential to give us a weekly serving of Karl Urban in full on snark mode, which we wouldn't complain about either.

When Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s “Here Comes the Devil” made its debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest, it was essentially the toast of the town. The Mexican horror film has been described as “weird,” “insane” and “odd,” with intense sexual situations and some very gory moments. In other words, it’s the perfect film for any horror fan to feast upon. And now, after more than a year since its festival debut, it’s finally making its way to theaters and VOD.

Wolf Creek 2
One film that you might not have guessed played the Venice Film Festival earlier this is Greg McLean's "Wolf Creek 2." Yes, the sorta cult hit horror flick from 2004 has returned nearly a decade later with a sequel, and once again, it looks like things get pretty nasty in the Australian outback.

It seems that no matter how hard they try, Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt can't get anyone to see their films. Their first collaboration, 2007's "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," suffered through a difficult editing process only to be indifferently released by Warner Bros. (Thankfully, it has attained cult status since, and is slated for a retrospective screening at the Museum Of The Moving Image in December.) Their second pair-up, 2012's "Killing Them Softly," did better commercially, but hardly the kind of blockbuster numbers one expects from a Brad Pitt movie opening in wide release (7th place in its first weekend, with a tepid $6 million) and critics found it hard to embrace the film's darkly funny, sour core. Their loss.

Homefront
In 2013, James Franco has played Alien ("Spring Breakers"), Oz ("Oz The Great And Powerful"), Darl Bundren ("As I Lay Dying"), Hugh Hefner ("Lovelace") and James Franco ("This Is The End"). Say what you will, but Franco can sure choose 'em. And now for his next unlikely gig? He plays a dude named Gator in the Sylvester Stallone-penned (yes, really) "Homefront."

Grand Budapest Hotel
Wes Anderson movies are possibly the closest thing to an event movie for the … I was going to say something like "indie nerd cinephile set," but the truth is Anderson’s films are beloved by all kinds of audiences—those who love tentpoles, cineastes, sci-fi aficionados, etc. His visual vocabulary is so idiosyncratic, so singular and distinct, it has practically become a brand or genre unto itself and it can be appreciated by anyone who simply loves movies.

While the documentary genre has grown increasingly popular over the past few years, with filmmakers imbuing their projects with the energy and feel of feature films, veteran Frederick Wiseman has maintained the approach he established all the way back in the 1960s. Choosing to observe rather than intrude, for over five decades, Wiseman has provided unique insights into a variety of subject matter ranging from psychiatric hospitals to burlesque clubs to Central Park and more. But for this next effort, the filmmaker is going back to school...

Mandela: Walk To Freedom
We're not sure if U2 is exactly the best choice to write a song for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom," but Bono and company have long been supporters of the South African leader, and certainly one of the most high profile, and Harvey Weinstein didn't waste much time in making sure they added an extra promotional flavor to his movie. Something he's no stranger to doing.

Oh hey, look! A Disney movie not based on a pre-existing property, and not a Pixar or Marvel release either. Instead, it's from their own animation department, which has been doing just fine of late with fare like "Tangled" and "Wreck-It-Ralph," and now comes a new princess story, but one with a chilly edge.
