The Buzz: If you could get Vin Diesel going on an uncensored review of his 15+ years in the industry and its attendant highs and many lows, it'd be worth the listen. Now that Fast Five has made Diesel a worldwide star, his development slate is beefing up with projects old and new. Something tells me Riddick's real victories will come from his overseas campaigns, and that U.S. audiences might be more inclined to catch up with him at home.

Certificate PG-13   -   Documentary

Metascore: 40/100 (28 reviews)
An unprecedented look inside the private world of J.D. Salinger, the reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: It's rather cool to consider the biggest film spoiler of the year might have something to do with new works being published by an author who wrote a series of novels while in seclusion. If any documentary can outpace Twenty Feet from Stardom (2013) at the box office, this is it.

  -   Drama | Romance

A romantic comedy which tells the journey of three restless young people who junk society's syllabus for finding love and decide to follow their heart.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) director Maneesh Sharma returns with up-and-comers Sushant Singh Rajput (recently seen in Kai po che! (2013)), Parineeti Chopra (co-star of Sharma's Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl (2011)) and first-timer Vaani Kapoor in lead roles. With its youth-baiting premise, could this wind up in the top 10 this weekend?

Certificate PG   -   Drama | Romance

Metascore: 19/100 (7 reviews)
A billionaire with questionable priorities re-examines his life after discovering his grandfather's journal.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Michael Landon Jr., who helmed The Last Sin Eater (2007), takes over the director's chair for what's being promoted as both a sequel and a prequel to The Ultimate Gift (2006). Making things slightly more confusing is the fact that the principal cast has returned, but Logan Bartholomew has taken over the lead role of Jason Stevens. In a week with only one other wide release (Riddick (2013)), the Faith-based audience could help this one land in the top 10.

Certificate R   -   Drama

Metascore: 55/100 (18 reviews)
A massage therapist is unable to do her job when stricken with a mysterious and sudden aversion to bodily contact. Meanwhile, her uptight brother's floundering dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his healing touch.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Filmmaker Lynn Shelton's latest isn't as buzzy as her previous work, Your Sister's Sister (2011), but she's one of the best directors around when it comes to coaxing naturalistic performances from her actors. We're looking forward to her next project, Laggies (2014), a collaboration with novelist Andrea Seigel.

Certificate R   -   Comedy | Romance | Sport

Metascore: 57/100 (25 reviews)

Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: European hunk Romain Duris and his lovely co-star Deborah Francois might set art-house hearts aflame in directo Regis Roinsard's love letter to Hollywood romantic comedies. Berenice Bejo from The Artist (2011) -- the movie to which Populaire has been compared -- has a supporting role.

Certificate PG   -   Documentary | Biography | History | Music

Metascore: 60/100 (14 reviews)
A documentary in which Freda Kelly looks back at her career as lifelong secretary for The Beatles.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Ryan White's portrait of a Liverpudlian teenager who landed the dreamiest fan-girl job of the 1960s is a definite crowd-pleaser that illustrates how one doesn't need to resort to gossip in order to reveal a unique personal history to one's audience -- even if it becomes clear that John Lennon could be a meanie now and then.

Certificate PG-13   -   Horror | Thriller

Metascore: 40/100 (30 reviews)
The Lamberts believe that they have defeated the spirits that have haunted their family, but they soon discover that evil is not beaten so easily.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Josh Lambert didn't pass away, but he's not really himself anymore, either ... The sequel to the commercial and critical hit (an achievement for a horror film) is directed once again by James Wan, who is coming off his biggest hit to date (The Conjuring (2013)) and now preparing to take over the Fast & Furious franchise. Hollywood, meanwhile, has turned to both Wan and producer Jason Blum to make hopeful hits with A-list talent signing up left and right. Most recent example: Jennifer Lopez will star in Blum's just-announced thriller, The Boy Next Door.

Certificate R   -   Comedy | Crime | Thriller

Metascore: 42/100 (32 reviews)
The Manzoni family, a notorious mafia clan, is relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program, where fitting in soon becomes challenging as their old habits die hard.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: In a way, Malavita is this year's Flight (2012), in that the project represents director Luc Besson's return to the kind of filmmaking that tends to suit him best. While it's unlikely to be a big hit, we always route for anything with Michelle Pfeiffer in it.

  -   Comedy | Drama | Romance

Meet, Prem, and Amar look to have a blast at their college reunion, though they soon find themselves in another predicament.
Director:

The Buzz: The guys from the 2004 hit are back for what could be a breakout hit in the U.S. given the movie's cultural controversies and youth-baiting raunchiness.

Certificate PG   -   Comedy | Drama

Metascore: 81/100 (26 reviews)

Director:

It also has a fleet of festival awards from around the world bolstering its profile as it prepares to make inroads here in the U.S. Let's see how quickly she can get her second film set-up!

Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Isaiah Washington and his co-star Tequan Richmond have earned strong reviews here -- especially Richmond for his near-wordless performance as a teenager pulled into a troubled family man's revenge plot. Director Alexandre Moors and writer R.F.I. Porto take a meditative looks at the true-life events, an approach that has earned strong reviews for their work. Independent Spirit Award nominations are likely.

Director:

Metascore: 70/100 (11 reviews)
A documentary on radical left-wing activist turned FBI informant, Brandon Darby.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: In some ways similar to last year's The Imposter (2012), this documentary on former radical leftist Brandon Darby is a portrait of a chameleon whose true nature and intentions cannot possibly be known. There's already a regarded Darby expose -- Better This World (2011) -- but director Jamie Meltzer's adds new layers of intrigue by simply pointing his camera directly at Darby and letting him do most of the talking.

Certificate R   -   Documentary

Metascore: 51/100 (15 reviews)
A documentary focused on former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief and fashion stylist Carine Roitfeld as she moves to New York to launch her own magazine.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Most recent fashion documentaries lift the veil from the industry in order to broaden their appeal; Fabien Constant's work seems to be more for insiders and the kind of people who watch runway shows on Style.com. (We're real excited for this one.)

Certificate R   -   Drama

Metascore: 48/100 (18 reviews)
Alabama; 1969: The death of a clan's estranged wife and mother brings together two very different families. Do the scars of the past hide differences that will tear them apart, or expose truths that could lead to unexpected collisions?
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: The kindest reviews of Billy Bob Thornton's return to the director's chair have called it "dense" and peppered with "unexpected moments", but these gentle remarks run parallel to critiques that compared his two-family period piece to the car crash that claimed Ms. Mansfield's life. Maybe the next project to bring together Thornton and his occasional co-writing partner Tom Epperson will connect with audiences.

Metascore: 74/100 (53 reviews)
When Keller Dover's daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Zodiac (2007) spotlighted Jake Gyllenhaal as a nascent detective, and it was one of his finest roles to date. He also nailed the buddy-cop relationship in End of Watch (2012), so I'm excited to see him as a cocky detective going up against a frantic Hugh Jackman in this Black List script by Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote Contraband (2012). The young screenwriter's project sat in the laps of several directors (including Bryan Singer and Antoine Fuqua) before Denis Villeneuve came aboard to direct his follow-up to the excellent, Oscar-nominated Incendies (2010). Given the cast's pedigree, the director's cache, and the adult-skewing subject matter, we think this is a true awards candidate in the Warner Bros. 2013 roster.

Certificate PG-13   -   Drama | Music

Metascore: 29/100 (21 reviews)
Battle of the Year attracts all the best teams from around the world, but the Americans haven't won in fifteen years. Dante enlists Blake to assemble a team of the best dancers and bring the Trophy back to America where it started.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Chris Brown might not put his past with Rihanna behind him in the indefinite future, but unlike, say, Mel Gibson, he's managed to find success despite a tarnished public image. Here, he teams up with Josh Peck for director Benson Lee, who is turning his documentary into a feature for Screen Gems, who haven't put out a dance movie since Stomp the Yard (2007), surprisingly. I'll make a large-popcorn bet that Brown's character redeems himself during the course of this battle.

Certificate PG-13   -   Comedy | Drama | Romance

Metascore: 78/100 (44 reviews)
A divorced woman who decides to pursue the man she's interested in learns he's her new friend's ex-husband.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Though this movie will forever be remembered as one of James Gandolfini's last big-screen appearances, it's cool to know that Nicole Holofcener wanted to work with him earlier on in her (and his) career. Having him paired with Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the highest final honors imaginable, and we're looking forward to how this duo translates Holofcener's reliable perspective on romance, aging, what have you.

Certificate R   -   Comedy | Drama

Metascore: 54/100 (38 reviews)
A romantic comedy that brings together three disparate characters who are learning to face a challenging and often confusing world as they struggle together against a common demon: sex addiction.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Stuart Blumberg received an Oscar nomination for co-writing the screenplay for The Kids Are All Right (2010) - a breakthrough for a career that started with Ed Norton's directorial effort, Keeping the Faith (2000). Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow have both surprised critics with their respective performances, though the general consensus indicates that the overall story is a bit thin.

Metascore: 60/100 (16 reviews)
A cocky young man travels to Oregon to work on an apple farm. Out of his element, he finds his lifestyle and notions being picked apart by everyone who crosses his path.
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Adapting a David Sedaris story for the big screen is both an honor and a daunting task -- we're unsure if a film can even come close to matching his written tone effectively -- but director/adapter Kyle Patrick Alvarez has laid the foundation here, and reportedly there are fine performances from star Jonathan Groff, the oddly sexy Corey Stoll from "House of Cards", the reliable Denis O'Hare and Dale Rickey, and what's said to be a surprising and subdued turn from former "SNL" player Casey Wilson.

Certificate R   -   Crime | Drama | Thriller

Metascore: 53/100 (16 reviews)
The tragic death of a beautiful young girl starts a tense and atmospheric game of cat and mouse between hunter John Moon and the hardened backwater criminals out for his blood.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: We'll watch Sam Rockwell in anything (seriously, put on Gentlemen Broncos (2009) again and we'll deal with it) so it doesn't matter if we think we've seen plenty of similar plots in the past, we just want to watch Rockwell lead the way -- even if it's into dangerous yet familiar territory.

Certificate G   -   Adventure | Family | Fantasy | Musical

Metascore: 100/100 (4 reviews)
Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home in Kansas and help her friends as well.

The merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Senna (2010) made the real world of Formula 1 racing one of the best documentaries in recent history. Will a dramatized version of champion rider Niki Lauda's obsessive competitive streak register with a wide audience? Well, with Ron Howard directing, we can't help but think this will be the safest race around. The upshot: Daniel Brühl's first starring role in the States.

The Buzz: Paula Patton as a spinster flight attendant? We don't buy it. However! Jumping the Broom (2011) = actually funny, so we're ultimately on board with Patton in nuptials-comedy mode.

Metascore: 66/100 (41 reviews)
A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Joseph Gordon-Levitt gets serious behind the camera, goes all Jersey in front of it, and emerges with strong reviews for his directorial debut. One savvy reviewer deemed it "a Marty (1955) for the internet porn era."

Certificate PG   -   Documentary | Biography | History | Music

Metascore: 75/100 (23 reviews)
A documentary that celebrates Rick Hall, the founder of FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and the signature sound he developed in songs such as "I'll Take You There", "Brown Sugar", and "When a Man Loves a Woman".
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Audiences have been turning out in droves for music documentaries over the past couple years, and this one pays tribute to the classics songs created at the famed recording studio by looking at the historical context that helped create some of the most enduring soul music ever recorded.

Certificate R   -   Drama | Horror | Thriller

Metascore: 71/100 (26 reviews)
The Parkers, a reclusive family who follow ancient customs, find their secret existence threatened as a torrential downpour moves into their area, forcing daughters Iris and Rose to assume responsibilities beyond those of a typical family.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Director Jim Mickle and writer/actor Nick Damici established themselves in the world of indie horror with 2006's Mulberry St (2006), and here they take on the English-language revamp of the 2010 Mexican film that got a lot of attention of the film-festival circuit and was eventually released by IFC. With the original movie's cache and the redo's strong cast (including a supporting appearance by Kelly McGillis, who was also seen in Mickle's recent Stake Land (2010)), many a critical eye awaited this project -- and this was an informed audience, unlike the critics and bloggers who were caught off-guard by the original. It's a feat in and of itself that Mickle has critics divided as to which version is better.

Certificate PG   -   Documentary

Metascore: 68/100 (24 reviews)
A documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country's widening economic gap.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Jacob Kornbluth has two indie features to his credit, and his first documentary has earned quite a bit of notice for its sense of humor -- if you can believe that, given the subject matter. How did he find this tone? Turns out that Robert Reich is a natural storyteller.
