Dee Rees’ short film Pariah debuted at the Sundance Film Festival 10 years ago, followed shortly after by her stunning 2011 debut feature of the same name, and a slew of Emmy wins for her HBO film Bessie. She’s been a talent to keep an eye on, but with Mudbound, a powerful period drama pulsing with urgency, she’s on her way to becoming a household name.

Ang Lee is am ambitious filmmaker, but ambition doesn’t always pay off. With Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon he fused emotional relationships with the dazzle of wuxia action, and in Life of Pi he told a story about spirituality and survival through an innovative use of CG and motion-capture performance. In Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Lee is once again pushing the boundaries of filmmaking shooting the film in 120 frames per second (five times the normal rate of your average movie). What results is a stunning and unique viewing experience, but ultimately a failed experiment.

William Monahan’s screenplay for The Departed is partially responsible for helping Martin Scorsese finally earn that long-deserved Oscar, though his work since then has been a bit of a mixed bag. Monahan’s latest sees him pulling double duty as writer and director for Mojave, starring Oscar Isaac as a deranged loner who stalks Garrett Hedlund through Los Angeles. Maybe he had nothing better to do?

Disney surprised everyone earlier this year that Tron 3, a sequel to the mediocre 2010 Tron: Legacy, was on the fast-track. Stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were set to return, along with original director Joseph Kosinski. And then, just as quickly as the sequel materialized, it disappeared. Disney abruptly canceled the film and everyone was left scratching their heads. Why randomly start developing Tron 3 (a movie that, frankly, few were clamoring for) five years after Tron: Legacy only to cancel it just a few short months later? Well, now Hedlund is saying it might not actually be as dead as you think.

After the previous promotional images and trailers for Joe Wright’s slightly-delayed Pan movie, you probably don’t even need to see these new character posters to have an idea of what they’d look like. But here they are anyway, in all their vibrant, well-lit and detailed glory. And wouldn’t you know it, but Hugh Jackman is still rocking that sick cartoon villain mustache.

Tron 3, the sequel to 2010’s Tron: Legacy, was announced earlier this year with a lot of questions. Why?, chiefly among them. Also, would any of the original cast return? It was originally announced that Jeff Bridges would likely not be coming back, but would Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde return? Today, we have some confirmation as Disney has announced that Hedlund and Wilde will reprise their roles from Tron: Legacy, joining director Joseph Kosinski on the upcoming sequel.

Even though the first Tron film didn’t perform very well at the box office, and even though Tron: Legacy was mostly derided by critics and fans alike and pretty much flopped financially, Disney is moving forward with plans for Tron 3. It’s certainly the most eyebrow-raising news of the week, as it basically comes out of nowhere—but it’s happening, and it’s shooting this fall in Vancouver.

The first preview for Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort, 'Unbroken,' premiered during the 2014 Winter Olympics today -- appropriate, as the story of her latest film follows an Olympian who tragically becomes a prisoner of war during World War II. And it looks to be pretty inspirational stuff from the sophomore director and A-list actress, whose debut film, 'In the Land of Blood and Honey,' also told a harrowing and inspirational story.
