Remember when it was announced that Coldplay were co-financing a movie? No? Well, that was almost two years ago, and the fruits of their money's labor will now be seen in the finished product, "Ashes," a film noir that looks as confusing as it is generic, though it does boast Ray Winstone going blonde, "Memento"-style.

There is no doubt that Michael Shannon can play menacing -- he'll put it to blockbuster effect this summer as General Zod in "Man Of Steel" -- and it seems filmmakers are eager to harness that intensity. That's certainly true with "The Iceman," the starry hitman flick that hit the festival circuit last fall but has been quiet ever since. But with a spring release date around the corner, Millenium Films have turned a light back onto the picture as they gear up to get it out.

Recent cinema has seen a small handful of movies about cults or communities -- "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Sound Of My Voice," "The Master" among them -- but perhaps the eeriest or strangest of them all is the upcoming "Jug Face." Set to premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival, we have the first exclusive trailer for the movie, and....well, just watch it, and you'll see what we mean.

Mark Webber is not only a solid actor traversing both indie and mainstream worlds ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), but he has also found his own voice and bloomed into a interesting writer/director in recent years. He released his debut "Explicit Ills" in 2009, and his sophomore directorial effort, "The End of Love" feels like another personal and intimate work. It also features a meta aspect at its core: he stars as an actor named Mark alongside his real-life, then-two-year-old son Issac

There are few actors on the big screen who command the kind of presence Rutger Hauer brings to the various roles he plays. While he's mostly known to North American audiences for his roles in genre films such as "Blade Runner," "Sin City," "Hobo With A Shotgun" and more, Hauer is also a gifted dramatic actor, and he heads to the Sundance Film Festival this week with a tantalizing drama that should shed some new light on his talent.

Listen, it's pretty much a wasteland at the box office this weekend. The less said about "A Haunted House" the better, while "Gangster Squad" is just plain disappointing (you'd be better off watching these classic gangster flicks instead). Granted, "Zero Dark Thirty" is going wide, but if you'd rather avoid the crowds, there are options if you're just staying in. Roman Coppola's "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III" is now on VOD, and if you need to know what it's all about, Charlie Sheen is here to tell you.

While a big portion of North America is currently in the grip of winter, and the snow, darkness and cold that comes with it, there are many of you that won't see one snowflake this season. But if you're looking to get (more than a) taste of what that's like, a new documentary is here to share its chilling beauty.

We're just over two months away from returning to Westeros, and HBO continues to promote the third season of "Game Of Thrones." Now they've offered up another new teaser, but... sorry, folks, there's no actual footage from the show.

Okay, can we say that whatever good will Brad Anderson had from the (somewhat overrated) "The Machinist" has now officially evaporated? Since then, he's delivered "Transsiberian" and "Vanishing On 7th Street," but mostly worked in TV.  And now he has teamed up with WWE (yes, the wrestling company) for "The Call" (formerly "The Hive"). And it's a movie that looks so cheap, we're surprised it's getting a theatrical release.
