The Homesman
Eight years ago (gosh, was it really that long?), Tommy Lee Jones made his long-awaited feature directorial debut with the contemporary neo-western “The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada.” The film premiered at Cannes, and proved a big hit there, winning a Best Actor trophy for Jones, and a Best Screenplay prize for “Babel” scribe Guillermo Arriaga. But the film never quite found an audience outside the Croisette, and perhaps for that reason, the only thing that Jones has made in the meantime was a modest HBO adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s “The Sunset Limited.”

sex lies and videotape
“I’m a little concerned by what ‘sex, lies’ might have wrought here,’ said Steven Soderbergh at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival, proving even at 27 to be, aside from a promising filmmaker, an unusually thoughtful and prescient commentator on the wider industry. This was scarcely a year after his debut feature had unassumingly premiered at the festival and irrevocably changed the face of the movie world, and already then the sleepy, retrospectively genteel-feeling festival of yore had unmistakably begun its rapid evolution into the titan it is today; a quick glance at our coverage of this year’s Sundance alone can tell you just how far it’s come, in terms of media profile, business activity, not to mention sheer volume of films.

It’s likely impossible to avoid at this point, but in case you’ve been living under a rock, reviews for “Thor: The Dark World” have arrived (read ours here). That means related press for all the cast and hundreds of online journals grilling Marvel Chief Kevin Feige for morsels of details about "The Avengers" sequel and what the hell is going on with Marvel’s Phase 3 plans (as of right now, it’s a lot of carved out release dates with no movies actually announced).

If you're wondering what the heck an Ultron is, not to worry because Marvel has got you covered. Even though the movie isn't slated to drop until 2015, Joss Whedon and co. have been busy getting their ducks in a row for "The Avengers" sequel (after all, those Phase Two post-credits teasers don't cast themselves). Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are expected to play Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in the superhero followup, and now the villain who will get the band back together one more time, now has an actor to play it.

This week concluded the yearly "up-fronts," where advertisers and affiliates convene in New York City so that the various networks can trot out their exciting new fall products. It brings an end to "pilot season," in which initial episodes are furiously produced and then handily judged, and kicks off the excitement for the following fall. (Even though, as we're becoming increasingly aware, the traditional notions of when shows are supposed to air and how long they're supposed to be are blurring considerably.) Out of all of the new shows – dozens and dozens of hours of freshly scripted content – we have chosen the ten shows that we find the most promising; five hour-long dramas and five sitcoms. Don't change that dial.

While Daniel Day-Lewis is rightfully earning the most attention around "Lincoln" as he portrays the iconic President in Steven Spielberg's film, it's easy to forget that the picture is rounded out by a supporting cast of top-shelf actors. And now a fresh batch of new pics gives them a bit of shine.

Colin Farrell OutIn the works for about a year now, there is a whole lot of fresh movement on "Up In The Air" scribe Sheldon Turner's directorial debut "By Virtue Fall." A fresh cast is now in place, and while one big star who has been circling seems to be on board, one has also departed.
