Closed Circuit
It's going to be a long summer of explosions, CGI and dick jokes, as your stomach sours from too much buttery popcorn and your brain hurts from endless 3D spectacles. But capping off the season will be a movie that will hopefully have some smarts, and it at least promises some strong talent in a compelling picture.

Hugh Jackman, Prisoners
It was mooted as one of Hollywood script's circa 2009 in fact it landed at the top of the BlackList pile that year. Names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Bryan Singer, Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale were thrown around in several different versions, but for whatever reason the film never quite came together. However, one actor stayed the course. Hugh Jackman was set to play the lead in 2010 and cut to a few years later, the actor was game and ready to play the role in the newest iteration.

This Is The End
It's either some brass balls or just a flat out bad decision, but with Sony positioning Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's let's-make-a-movie-with-our-friends effort "This Is The End" for the same weekend on "Man Of Steel," they are essentially hoping that many folks will forgo Superman or some dumb laughs. Granted, it drops on the Wednesday so the comedy will a slight head start, but will it build enough steam to make a decent counter-programming choice?

The common complaint about sequels that don't work is that they merely carbon copy the first successful movie with less satisfying results. But "Cars" aside, Pixar has shown they can up their game each time out within a series, at least as far as "Toy Story" goes. But with "Monsters University," instead of going forward, they're going back to where it all began. But in doing so, can they recreate the magic that was "Monsters Inc."?

Movie marketing is so pervasive through social media, yet the movie trailer endures, continuing to be a key piece of marketing for a movie’s success. So, the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) wants to reduce all of that; not by showing fewer trailers, but by cutting the length of them. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NATO wants to require all film trailers to be two minutes in length; a thirty second cut from average runtime of trailers today.

With the red carpets rolled up, the champagne corked and every available bed now vacant in the south of France, the Croisette is now back to being a hub of the bustling beach resort at least until next May when the frenzy of the Cannes Film Festival descends again. Over the weekend, the prizes were handed out by Steven Spielberg's jury and history was made as director Abdellatif Kechiche and the two lead actresses Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux shared the Palme d'Or for very well-received relationship drama "Blue Is The Warmest Color" (read our rave review here). But it was just one of many films that got honored, including Asghar Farhadi's "The Past," the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis," Hirokazu Kore-Eda's "Like Father, Like Son" and many more titles including buzzed-about "Heli," "Blue Ruin," Jia Zhangke's "A Touch Of Sin," and more.
