Mary Harron knows a few things about the struggles of being a woman in Hollywood. Like many of her fellow female filmmakers, Harron hasn’t had the easiest time. After making an assertive debut with I Shot Andy Warhol, she went on to helm the critically-acclaimed American Psycho, and since then has stuck mostly to television, where she’s directed episodes of shows like Big Love and The Following, and the HBO film The Notorious Bettie Page. At long last, Harron is finally developing a new film project, one that reunites her with American Psycho co-writer Guinevere Turner, the duo once again exploring the darker, more murderous side of humanity.

He may be taking a break from the genre to direct 'Fast and Furious 7,' but after the jaw-dropping success of 'The Conjuring' and now 'Insidious Chapter 2,' you just know he'll be back. No one is bringing the audiences in quite like Wan.
Oh, and there were some other movies that made some money, too.

For every 'Silver Linings Playbook' there's a 'Big Wedding' or 'Righteous Kill' or a slapped-together piece of tone-deaf dross like 'The Family.'
