So this is happening, and I guess you better just just deal with it. The story of "Bonnie & Clyde," immortalized in Arthur Penn's iconic 1967 film, is now being told again by Bruce Beresford ("Peace, Love & Misunderstanding," "Mao's Last Dancer" and "The Contract") with Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the outlaws. The results?

There were few films at TIFF this year as brazenly filthy and outrageous as "Dom Hemingway," and certainly fewer as enjoyable. And while release date schedules dictate that the movie still won't arrive stateside until next year, overseas, audiences will be the first to dive into the fun, and a new trailer is here to highlight what's in store. But don't make any quick judgments on the movie based on this trailer which doesn't really do the tone of "Dom Hemingway" justice.

Under The Skin
It may have taken nine years for Jonathan Glazer to deliver his third feature-length film, but the wait for "Under The Skin" has been more than worth it. Knocking out Playlist writers who saw the movie in Venice, Telluride and Toronto (see our review and 5 Reasons Why Jonathan Glazer's 'Under The Skin' Is One Of The Best Films Of The Year), the film is a visually dazzling piece of work, packed with enough ideas that you'll need a couple of viewings to dig beneath its many layers. The first teaser dropped a few weeks back, but now a longer version—almost twice the length—is here and it's another great peek at the movie.

While Vince Vaughn is best known for his motormouth in a wide array of comedies, he's been desperate to do something a bit more gritty. Over the past while, he's been lining up no shortage of more serious-minded fare like the the thriller "The Risk Agent," the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers" and road adventure "Triple Time." But it looks like another project has the momentum to cast the actor in a whole new light.

Enemy, Jake Gyllenhaal
If there is any bromantic duo we want to see keep working together, it's Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve. This weekend, their searing and terrific "Prisoners" opens wide. But before they made that film, they first paired up on "Enemy," an ambitious mind-bender featuring Gyllenhaal in the two lead roles.

So, how do you market an NC-17 rated, three-hour, lesbian relationship drama featuring a much talked about, graphic sex scene? Well, you start by tossing in a quote by Steven Spielberg, the Cannes Jury president who gave the celebrated film the Palme d'Or and declared: "Magnificent...we were under the spell of the film and its wonderful actresses." Nicely played, Sundance Selects, nicely played.

By now, "World War Z"—its production, the reshoots, the scrapped ending, the surprisingly strong box office take—has been discussed, dissected and talked over six ways to Sunday. And with the movie arriving on home video this week, that talk is coming up again, albeit in smaller doses. So here's a quick trip through the good and bad of the movie, thanks to some promo material unveiled in conjunction with the Blu-ray release.

When you sign up for a Marvel movie, any precious notions you have about creative autonomy basically go out the window. Whether you're the director, an actor, an electrician or the guy who makes sure Samuel L. Jackson gets his cronuts, everyone is there to serve the Marvel universe and its fans. No more, no less. And while it's fun to think about [insert favorite auteur] getting a chance to make an R-rated movie about [insert gritty hero that no has heard of], it will basically never happen. But if you can give into that spirit of collaborative creation, then you'll probably be cool with someone stepping in to help on your movie.

Watch: New Trailer For ABC's 'Toy Story OF TERROR!' Halloween Special

One of the highlights of the Disney Animation panel at this year's D23 Expo was getting a chance to watch the first ten minutes of the upcoming Halloween special "Toy Story of Terror" (sorry, that-scene-from-"Planes: Fire and Rescue"). Even though the footage was somewhat rough (and temped with music from "Ed Wood," which was actually kind of neat), it was totally compelling. Instead of being an anthology piece, like the recent "Shrek" Halloween special (and countless "Treehouse of Horror" episodes of "The Simpsons"), it assumes a single narrative thread, appropriating the "spooky motel" conceit of "Psycho" and "Vacancy," as an unseen malevolent force hunts hunt our toys after Bonnie's family stops at a roadside inn on a dark and stormy night. Now a new trailer has been released for the 30-minute-special, so you too can get spookily excited.
