He really believes in Morris and what he stands for. Of course, nothing is ever as simple as it seems, especially when it comes to politics. Soon Myers finds himself in the middle of double crosses from both the media and colleagues, involving a scandal that could unravel everything.

    Weekend Preview: Ides of March, Real Steel, The Way, Dirty Girl, War Doc Hell and Back Again

    The star power of this weekend's leading men -- George Clooney and Ryan Gosling of political drama The Ides of March and Hugh Jackman of amped-up sci-fi actioner Real Steel -- will make a dent in Dolphin Tale and Moneyball's current top spots. In the indiesphere, Mateo Gil's Blackthorn takes a bite out of Butch Cassidy legend, while Emilio Estevez's The Way aims to inspire and Abe Sylvia's reedited Dirty Girl attempts to push indie girl Juno Temple into leading lady status. In the mood for something French? Phillippe Le Guay's The Women on the 6th Floor is a charming trifle. Powerful war documentary Hell and Back Again is scoring the best reviews; it's indieWIRE's pick of the week.

    Anton Corbijn To Direct Coldplay Concert Webcast

    Longtime rock band photographer and music video director Anton Corbijn waited until relatively late in his career to try his hand at feature filmmaking. His first effort was the austere Ian Curtis biopic "Control," which he followed up last year with the masterful assassin tale "The American." However, it seems like big screen movies aren't quite a comfortable fit for the helmer. Last fall he admitted he may only have one more film left in him, and that may be an adaptation of John le Carré‘s political thriller "A Most Wanted Man," which he signed for back in June. Not much has been heard on that front since, but Corbijn is still plenty busy. Before he gets to that film, Arts Beat report he'll team with Coldplay and helm their upcoming concert webcast for the American Express Unstaged series.
