With the Oscars over, it looks like we are finally ready to stop talking about last year’s movies and keep our focus entirely on this year’s crop of films. Well, most of us are ready to do that. Annapurna Pictures has posted a nifty little sizzle reel on their site showcasing the collection of challenging adult dramas that they’ve released and/or have been involved with over the past year. This includes clips from "Lawless," "The Master," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Killing Them Softly," "Spring Breakers" (premiered in Venice last summer) and "The Grandmaster" (premiered in Berlin a few weeks ago), with the latter two set to be released theatrically this year. The reel is a must watch for fans of any or all of these films.

With the Oscars over, it looks like we are finally ready to stop talking about last year’s movies and keep our focus entirely on this year’s crop of films. Well, most of us are ready to do that. Annapurna Pictures has posted a nifty little sizzle reel on their site showcasing the collection of challenging adult dramas that they’ve released and/or have been involved with over the past year. This includes clips from "Lawless," "The Master," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Killing Them Softly," "Spring Breakers" (premiered in Venice last summer) and "The Grandmaster" (premiered in Berlin a few weeks ago), with the latter two set to be released theatrically this year. The reel is a must watch for fans of any or all of these films.

It’s hard not to love, or at least admire, Annapurna head Megan Ellison who was instrumental in getting those six films made. In spite of the fact that "Zero Dark Thirty" was really the only financially successful one of the bunch, the sizzle reel suggests that there is a lot to be proud of with the work Annapurna has done thus far. They look to keep plowing ahead this year, producing films by Spike Jonze (“Her”), Bennett Miller (“Foxcatcher”), and David O. Russell (the untitled Abscam film starring Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and more). It will be interesting to see how their work will continue to affect the film industry.

Be sure to check out the reel below. Here’s to many more great films and sizzle reels from the young production company in the years to come.
