Behind The Candelabra
Serving as the gaudy, bejeweled finale to Steven Soderbergh’s film career (for now), Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” cemented itself as one to watch from the minute the director announced it. A trailer finally dropped for the HBO production last month and blew us away, and now a new look from across the pond has offered several more reasons to get excited.

August: Osage County' Starring Meryl Streep
On paper, "August: Osage County" looks like a no-brainer awards season behemoth. Based on prize-winning source material? Check. All-star cast? Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Sam Shepard, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Dermot Mulroney and Margo Martindale...so hell yes. An exciting director? John Wells. Okay, so two out of three ain't bad. The end result? Well...

Gravity, Sandra Bullock (skip)
Perhaps a recap of the journey we've been on with "Gravity" is in order. Hell, just getting a cast in order is a story itself with Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie attached at various points, and after the latter left, a frantic search geared up to find a replacement for take the lead with Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Sienna Miller, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Olivia Wilde and Blake Lively all being rumored/considered/wishlisted before Sandra Bullock signed on, followed shortly by George Clooney.

If you're wondering what a geek-gasm looks like, you should probably hit your social media networks right now. Marvel, having already conquered the multiplex and set to unleash their power on the small screen with "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.," are now seeing what the animated world can do for them. First announced at Comic-Con last year, Disney Animation is tackling "Big Hero 6," another Marvel superteam of heroes, though not as well known as The Avengers. But that will likely not matter one iota if this footage is anything go by.

Over the course of his career, Takashi Miike has largely been known for his gonzo, hyper-violent yakuza flicks, candy colored and bonkers kids movies and a work ethic that outpaces James Franco. But a contender for the Palme d'Or? Indeed, back in 2011 his sleepy "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai" quietly got a competition slot and this year, so too does he police procedural "Shield Of Straw." Can it realistically be a player against folks like Alexander Payne, Asghar Farhadi, The Coen Brothers, Steven Soderbergh, Roman Polanski and others?

Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Isaac
In just over a week, the Coens will present their latest "Inside Llewyn Davis" to the always fussy audiences at the Cannes Film Festival. While we'll have to wait until we actually see the thing, it's looking like another success from the sibling directors. CBS Films is already thinking Oscar, but if you're not going to France and can't wait until December, this red band trailer should hold over.

It has been three years since Paul Greengrass' last film, the lukewarm "Green Zone," and while in the interim there was much chatter about another return to 'Bourne,' the director himself has buckled down and hit the open water for his next effort "Captain Phillips," and damn, does it ever look good.

Wolverine, Hugh Jackman
With "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" stacked to the rafters with pretty much every mutant they can squeeze into the thing, this summer's "The Wolverine" is looking pretty quaint. Oh sure, we'll get Viper, Silver Samurai and Jean Grey (probably), but those few barely even begin to scratch the sheer volume of players Bryan Singer is bringing to the table. Perhaps not be outdone, and to possibly try and ape Marvel's comic world building, it would appear that another face will be popping up as a late addition to "The Wolverine," and duh, spoilers below.
