    Watch: Trailer For Abel Ferrara's '4:44 Last Day On Earth' Starring Willem Dafoe

    Someone, somewhere deserves some credit when you watch a trailer for a film that you've already read negative reviews for, yet the trailer still makes you want to see it. That was the case for this writer when watching the trailer for Abel Ferrara's apocalyptic "4:44: Last Day On Earth." Our reviewer saw the film at NYFF last year and found that "for all its arty posturing, there's something anticlimactic and ultimately unfulfilling about the film." If that's the case then that's a real shame, because this is a fairly promising preview.

    Watch: French NSFW Trailer & 2 Clips From 'Farewell, My Queen' Starring Diane Kruger & Lea Seydoux

    You can imagine the boardroom pitch can't you? "It's the story of Marie Antoinette...but with some girl on girl action." Well, according to our review at Berlinale 2012, the introduction of lesbianism into the tale of France's tragic queen is to no great effect. In fact, the verdict was that it was "overwrought and strangely lacking in drama, staggering under the deadening weight of an uninvolving central character." Well now comes the chance to start forming your own opinions after taking a look at a NSFW trailer and two clips from the film starring Diane Kruger, Lea Seydoux and Virginie Ledoyen.

    It's 'Pain And Gain' For Anthony Mackie As He Joins Michael Bay's Crime Caper

    While Anthony Mackie might not be a household name just yet, should his star continue to rise, it won't be long before that happens. The talented actor broke through with "The Hurt Locker," but savvy filmgoers already knew he was something special if they caught him in "8 Mile" or "Half Nelson." Since then, he's become one of those actors who elevates a film by his mere presence (he's pretty much the only thing worth watching in "Real Steel") and it's no suprise he's getting snapped up for films left and right. With "Ten Year," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Gangster Squad" on the way this year, Mackie has added another gig to his plate.

    To The Academy: Consider the Women

    It's that time of year, The Academy Awards, the "Super Bowl for Women." It's the night where we all get catty about whose dress doesn't work, who's got a new boyfriend or girlfriend, and who looks like they haven't eaten all month.

    New Looks At Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson & Jude Law In Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina'

    Don't expect the usual costume drama routine from Joe Wright's experimental take on "Anna Karenina." Yes, it has been adapted for the big screen before, but if early word on this project is any indication, it's going to be unlike anything we've seen before.

    Watch: Trailer For Morgan Spurlock's 'Comic-Con Episode IV - A Fan's Hope'

    Love him or hate him, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve found the often antagonizing but occasionally thought provoking “Super Size Me” documentarian Morgan Spurlock to be of interest at some point in his career. From his revealing take on the McDonald’s menu to his recent look at product placement and promotion in our culture with “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold,” Spurlock has covered much ground in his effort to satirize (and investigate) many elements of everyday American life.
