Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. After being pushed back to a January 11, 2013 release, here is the trailer for a new spin of a continuation story of the boy and girl who lost their way, survived a threat from a hungry and deceitful witch, killed her, and then went on to live happily ever after…only the happily ever after this time around means revenge and all out war! See Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in this upcoming fable of fighting!
Atlas Shrugged, part II. This sequel to the highly acclaimed 2011 release based on a 1957 Ayn Rand novel looks to pick up the mantle with some replaced cast members and more suspense. The story continues and the stakes continue to climb in this upcoming 2012 release. Did you see the first one? Are you interested in the follow up?
Dorothy of Oz. Dorothy ends up back in the wonderful land of Oz in this animated feature full of vocal talent. Starring Patrick Stewart, Kelsey Grammar, Dan Akyroyd, James Belushi, Martin Short, Lea Michele and more, follow Dorothy in this adventure in which she attempts to help her friends in an Oz that is more worse off than ever before. This musical adventure is set to release in 2013.
The Bay. Ah, the found footage genre resurfaces with yet another film. Only…this one seems to get under your skin. Literally. Chaos runs rampant when a small town in Maryland uncovers an unseen biological and ecological threat that sets off an epidemic of epic proportions. This one looks creepily good. Beware the Bay! Look for it in theaters on November 2, 2012.
Cloud Atlas (Theatrical trailer). This new trailer for the Wachowski’s upcoming adventure gives a little bit more to look forward to from this tale of love and life. Starring…well, everyone, check out the cast for this amazing and apparent non-linear look at life and the connections we forge in it: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Jim Sturgess, James D’Arcy, Jim Broadbent and more. Look for it on October 26, 2012.
Rust and Bone. Marion Cotillard stars in this touching film of a man(Ali) who moves to live with his sister and her family and then forms a bond with a killer whale trainer named Stephanie. Their bond grows deeper after a horrible accident leaves Stephanie unable to continue her training. Here’s the synopsis:
It all begins in the North of France. Ali suddenly finds himself with a five-year-old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes where things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage and takes the child under her wing. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl. He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured. She trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together.

The SEVEN Academy Award winning epic, Lawrence of Arabia is getting the restoration treatment for its 50th anniversary!
