A Second Chance
While we'll keeping asking, "Where's 'Serena' starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence?" until our throats are dry, director Susanne Bier keeps powering on to new movies. Last year, she dropped the romance "Love Is All You Need," and now she's already at work on her next film.

The Other Woman
Generally speaking, studio rom-coms have never done a great service to women, usually portraying them as highly emotional or unstable or simply unable to function without a man by their side. And in 2014, that trend continues with "The Other Woman," in which a trio of women decide to invest a lot of time and energy to get vengeance on the dude who was two-timing all of them.

What Kind Of Batman Will Superman Face
This weekend at Comic-Con Warner Bros dropped a bombshell: instead of announcing a sequel to this summer's "Man of Steel" (or a full-on "Justice League" movie), they revealed they would instead be bringing a Batman/Superman team-up movie to the big screen. Once again overseen by the "Man of Steel" team of director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer (with Christopher Nolan taking a distant executive producer role this time around) the movie will likely retain much of the "Man Of Steel" cast (including Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne), while folding in a presumably new Batman mythology. What they didn’t say was who would be putting on the cape and cowl. Let the speculation begin!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Game of Thrones, Season 3, Jamie Lannister
What up Gamers! Things are finally starting to get funny/sexy/crazy on ye olde "Games of Thrones." Blood 'n boobs, that's why we're here, that's what we were promised, and that's what we're going to get. This episode finally hits the gas on this season, and off we go. Thankfully, we get a bit of humor and levity to offset the gore and blood, which always helps.

Tom Cruise, Oblivion
Only a few years ago, big sci-fi action spectacles were confined pretty much to the summer months. But now, the season has crept out to the extent that it essentially lasts from the middle of February (see the release of "A Good Day To Die Hard" this year) to... pretty much the rest of the year, with barely a few weeks going by without a major tent-pole arriving. Even the once-barren month of April isn't safe anymore, with the arrival of "Oblivion," an expensive, visually lavish sci-fi picture top-lined by megastar Tom Cruise.

Sometimes you have to be a little nerdy to fully understand HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Or at least understand it more deeply than the average viewer. If Season 2 ended with the well-titled episode “Valar Morghulis" meaning, “all men must die,” in Season 3 we begin with the less ominous and more appropriate "Valar Dohaeris" -- “all men must serve.” As fans of Westeros should know, Season 3 falls roughly within the first half of “A Storm of Swords,” the third of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels by George R. R. Martin.

It looks like not only are things coming together for Cameron Diaz to appear as the title character in the upcoming comedy “The Other Woman,” now fellow lady comedian Leslie Mann and up-to-now serious Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, best known for his role in “Game Of Thrones,” are in talks to star opposite Diaz as man and wife. Kristen Wiig was once reported to be under consideration for what may now be Mann’s role -- but maybe that’s because it’s obligatory to consider Kristen Wiig for an appearance in every comedy.

If short filmmakers have a best case scenario in their minds when they set out to make something, then director Andres Muschietti may have just achieved it. After premiering his short film, “Mama,” to near-unanimous praise during festivals the past few years, the young filmmaker was chosen by Guillermo del Toro to develop the film into a feature, and soon after actress Jessica Chastain came aboard as well. Essentially reward upon reward for Muschietti, and we now get a nice glimpse ourselves as the first still from the project has hit the net.

For fans of the crime genre, both on the page and on the screen, Scandinavia has been the hottest source of new material in recent years (although obviously not literally). Steig Larsson's Millennium trilogy was a huge bestseller worldwide, and has already provided three Swedish films and David Fincher's upcoming remake "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," while Kenneth Branagh has had great success on TV as Henning Mankell's "Wallander," and Danish series "The Killing" proved a huge hit at home and in the U.K, and was remade on AMC under the same name.
