Well folks, it’s time to dust off your multi-lingual dictionaries and recharge your digital translators because, this week, it’s all about the foreign language film. Movies from Sweden, Greece, and France are in attendance, and an adaptation of a British novel – set in India – and a documentary centered on a Frenchman round out the global palette. Meanwhile, adventures in primordial lands and expeditions in parapsychology offer journeys to the past and to another dimension. And the voyages don’t stop here. Next week: the fabled Gotham City awaits!

One of the more impressive screen debuts of last year came from 21-year-old Welsh actor Craig Roberts. A British children's TV veteran (he was the star of "The Story Of Tracy Beaker" and "Young Dracula" among others), Roberts broke out as the pretentious, deluded hero of Richard Ayoade's charming "Submarine," coming across as equal parts Dustin Hoffman, Bud Cort and John Gordon Sinclair (from "Gregory's Girl"), and it seemed to mark the birth of a star.

Can't be in Park City this week? We feel your pain, and while most of us will have to wait for months and perhaps even a year to eventually see some of the movies unspooling at Sundance, hopefully this batch of new images will be enough to tide you over for now.

The Sundance Film Festival unveiled their next batch of titles this afternoon centered around their out-of-competition and docmentary premieres and if you weren't previously excited for the fest in January, this should seal the deal. With an impressive array of titles from seasoned vets to the newcomers that Sundance was made for, 2012 in Park City should be a blast.
