Glassland
If you don't know the name Jack Reynor, you soon will. The actor made waves with his turn in the Irish drama "What Richard Did," which led to his role in this summer's biggest blockbuster, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction." And coming soon he's got a part in the highly anticipated "Macbeth" starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. But before that, he's going back to his indie roots with "Glassland," and the first teaser trailer has arrived.

Benedict Cumberbatch
Of the many, many projects "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" director David Lowery has been linked to in the past year or so — "The Old Man And The Gun," with Robert Redford slated to star and produce; writing and directing former David Fincher project "Torso"; producing Alex Ross Perry's upcoming "Listen Up Philip"; writing and directing the sci-fi "Two" with Casey Affleck set to star; writing and directing Disney's "Pete's Dragon" — one you may have forgotten about is "The Yellow Birds." Lowery got attached to the gig last fall during TIFF, and not much has been heard since, but now it has some fresh movement.

The Maze Runner
"It’s really gritty, it’s a lot grittier than I think people are going to expect it to be," "The Maze Runner" and "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien told Collider last summer about "The Maze Runner." "What’s funny is that, in terms of subject matter, something like 'The Hunger Games' is much more viciously violent than this story is but when you see the movies though, it’s interesting how — I think this is going to surprise people with how dirty and dark it is." But the bigger question is not whether or not it can match the intensity of "The Hunger Games," but capture a similar audience.

Review: 'Wild Bill' Is An Immensely Likable Directorial Debut From Dexter Fletcher

For whatever reason, directorial debuts by British character actors tend to lean towards the gritty kitchen-sink drama; Tim Roth, Gary Oldman and, more recently, Paddy Considine have all broken their filmmaking cherry with uncompromisingly tough, bleak subject matter. Considering that it involves abandonment, council estates and the risk of being taken into care, one might be forgiven for expecting the same from Dexter Fletcher's first film, "Wild Bill." But then, Fletcher's best known for being one of the central quartet, alongside Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng and Nick Moran, in Guy Ritchie's debut "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," and for appearing frequently in 's pictures, so could Fletcher have turned out some kind of guns and geezers movie instead?

Ah, The Smiths. Who among us, at least those born after 1965 or so, can say they didn't have moments of adolescent angst, confusion and heartbreak soundtracked by the acerbic lyrics of Morrissey and the chiming guitar lines of Johnny Marr? And yet, their influence on film has never quite matched up to their cult appeal. Oh, sure, they've been recurring soundtrack favorites as far back as "Pretty In Pink," and were a key plot point in recent rom-com hit "(500) Days Of Summer," but have so far managed to avoid biopics or films revolving around them (like the upcoming Stone Roses-themed "Spike Island," which we reported on yesterday).
