    New Images From Laurent Cantet's 'Foxfire,' Francois Ozon's 'In The House,' Isabelle Huppert In 'Dormant Beauty' & More

    Though we got it once before as a 1992 Annette Haywood-Carter film starring a young Angelina Jolie and (eventual) Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, there's certainly room for improvement.

It's hard to find the proper enemy for the musclebound Brit, with him taking out Aiden GIllen in "Blitz," smacking up faceless mafia goons in "Safe" and eating Clive Owen's l...
