    Watch: Trailer & Clip For Cannes Critics Week Winner 'Take Shelter' Starring Michael Shannon

    Let's get this out of the way: if you haven't seen writer and director Jeff Nichols' debut feature "Shotgun Stories" get on that now. It's one of the most assured and powerful filmmaking debuts in recent memory and it's no surprise that Michael Shannon has returned once again to work with Nichols, this time in the psychological thriller "Take Shelter."

    "Green With Envy"? Yep, that's the fake title given the trailer for "The Muppets" but how many other movies are there coming out this year starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams and a bunch of felt covered co-stars? The answer is none.

    Official Synopsis Revealed For Refn's 'Only God Forgives'; Says 'Drive' Sequel Would Have 2 Drivers

    Says Lars Von Trier Spoke With His Mother Following Hitler-Gate & 'Sixteen Candles' Would Have Been A Masterpiece With More ViolenceWhile native countrymen Lars Von Trier and Nicolas Winding Refn had a little beef at Cannes following that whole Hitler-Nazi-gate thing, the latter got the ultimate "fuck you" taking home the Best Director award on Sunday for his critically acclaimed, moody action pic "Drive." And while champagne corks will be popped and the director is likely still basking in the glow, he'll soon come down off his cloud and get to work on his next film, the Bangkok set "Only God Forgives."

    Team Behind "Scary Movie," "Epic Movie," etc To Spoof "Avatar" Next ("Nothing Is Off Limits")

    "With a domestic box office of nearly 700 million dollars and an overseas haul of over 2 billion, it was only a matter time before this behemoth got a good ribbing. And what could possibly be riper for satire? You got half naked blue people plugging their hair into strange flying horses so they can read their thoughts! And nothing in this mega blockbuster is off limits, from its overly simplified message of “big corporations = bad; tree hugging environmentalist = good,” to the broadly drawn characters like the buffed out Colonel who’s in a perpetual ‘roid rage to the very colorful, glowing and… come on, totally stony world of Pandora. And just like “Avatar” our movie will be in eye popping 3-D - making it the very first spoof movie ever in this format."

    First Look At Jack Black In Richard Linklater's 'Bernie,' Film Will Open & Premiere At LA Film Fest

    It's been a while since indie and sometimes mainstream filmmaker Richard Linklater has had a major hit. His last few films "Me And Orson Welles," "Fast Food Nation" and "A Scanner Darkly" all quietly came and went but his next effort "Bernie" -- which notably finds him reteaming with "School Of Rock" star Jack Black and "Dazed & Confused" thesp Matthew McConaughey -- could be the comeback he needs, and is certainly one we're looking forward to.

    Vin Diesel To Star In The Action Comedy 'The Machine'

    With "Fast Five" driving all over the box office in a franchise that people can't seem to get enough of, the world appears to be an oyster for thick necked Vin Diesel. While his efforts outside of the car franchise haven't quite hit the same peaks, generally, the man brings in the bucks and it looks like he's ready to finally mould himself a career not unlike that of the similarly muscled and acting talent deficient Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Short Starts: "The Hangover Part II" Star Ed Helms in "Zombie-American"

    I’d venture to say that there are two highly anticipated films coming out this coming weekend. The first, of course, is Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life,” newly anointed by Robert De Niro and the Cannes Festival Jury with a Palme d’Or. Then there’s “The Hangover Part II,” the excitement for which is a bit different. I’ll be honest: initially I was hoping to write about Malick’s early short film, 1969’s “Lanton Mills.” Unfortunately, not only is it not available anywhere on the web, but to see it at all you have to go to the American Film Institute library. Those of us who don’t live in LA have no such luck.
