Clint Eastwood plays a veteran baseball scout who takes his daughter (Amy Adams) on the road with him in the new film Trouble with the Curve, a film serving as the feature directorial debut for his longtime Malpaso producing partner Robert Lorenz. Eastwood came out of semi-acting retirement to star in the film which is set to hit theaters on September 21. Previously, his performance in Gran Torino was assumed to be his last time in front of the camera, but either his friend or the role of Gus was too much to keep him away. Gus is an aging Atlanta Braves scout with vision problems whose daughter, Mickey, reluctantly agrees to be his eyes on a crucial recruiting trip. The film co-stars Matthew Lillard, John Goodman, Scott Eastwood and Justin Timberlake who plays Johnny, a rival young scout who happens to like and respect Gus. Check out the trailer directly »

The first trailer for the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve has been released. Clint Eastwood stars as an aging scout whose daughter (Amy Adams) reluctantly agrees to accompany him on one last crucial recruiting trip. Though the jokes are a bit hokey, the film looks to have a genuinely strong story anchored by the chemistry trifecta of Eastwood, Adams, and Justin Timberlake. Adams has the chance to shine in a strong female role, and the characters don't seem to be overshadowed by some win-chasing plot device that propels many sports dramas. Moreover, 90s staple Matthew Lillard pops up in yet another prestigious drama and somehow fits right in. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by Robert Lorenz, the film also stars John Goodman, Matt Bush, Robert Patrick and Scott Eastwood. The film opens on September 28th. Click over to Yahoo! to watch in HD. »

One film I felt could have very easily ended up on the slate of titles at the Toronto Film Festival was Robert Lorenz's directorial debut Trouble with the Curve featuring Clint Eastwood as Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves scout with vision problems whose daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), reluctantly agrees to be his eyes on a crucial recruiting trip. Above is the first picture released from the film, which is set to hit theaters on September 28. The film co-stars Matthew Lillard, John Goodman, Scott Eastwood and Justin Timberlake who plays Johnny, a rival young scout who happens to like and respect Gus.

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first batch of photos from Robert Lorenz's sports drama, Trouble with the Curve. These first stills feature a first look at Clint Eastwood, Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams in this baseball drama.
Director Robert Lorenz had to say about the character...
"He gets his chance to prove whether he still has value as a scout and as a dad. They're having trouble communicating. They always have, and now they've come to a point in the relationship where it's either going to change or it's not. He needs a little help, and she decides it's worth the effort."

Director: Jack Heller. Writer: Shawn Christensen and Jason Dolan. Cast: Sara Paxton, Scott Eastwood, Shaun Sipos, and Katherine Waterston. Reviewing a mystery requires delicacy. To reveal too much ruins the story for viewers unfamiliar with the film. So, this review for Enter Nowhere will dance about the major plot points while discussing the quality of Jack Heller's first feature. Enter Nowhere is a film that deals with time travel and freedom of choice. We all create our futures, this small film would tell us. This is most apparent when characters alter their behaviours to create for a better tomorrow. The final scene wraps the film up too neatly, but Enter Nowhere is an enjoyable time spent with a Twilight Zone-esque storyline. Both television series for "The Twilight Zone" (1959, 1985) dealt with unbelievable sci-fi circumstances and strange places. In "The Time Element" (1958) one character could travel back and forward in time. »

The Lion of Judah is an animated affair aimed at the story of Easter, and while it doesn’t manage to rise above many in terms of its animation, or its writing, when compared on a general level, it’s one of the more solid efforts you’ll run into when it comes to developing a complex (and tricky) subject for a young audience.
A group of farm animals are introduced to Judah, a lamb, only to have him quickly taken away. They decide to rescue him, and, meeting up with a donkey along the way, head out to find their new friend. Unprepared for pretty much anything that might come their way, the band gets separated, and quickly learn that the city has a lot of dangers in store for them, some that aren’t so obvious.
The whimsical characters are developed with the especially young in mind, and »

Update: I've already realized I forgot to add Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly and John Hillcoat's The Wettest County to this list. That would make 27. I haven't yet gotten around to cleaning up "The Contenders" section of the site just yet and while some may argue it's too early to look toward the 2013 Oscars considering we just closed the book on the 2012 Oscar ceremony I have to kindly disagree. If for no other reason, looking at films that might be vying for Best Picture next year we get to sort through a bunch of films that may end up being considered the year's best. What's wrong with that? Granted, as is often the case when looking this far into the future, several of these films may end up being duds. Some may not actually hit theaters in 2012 (though most do have established release dates) and others just might »

Sorry, Leatherface fans. If you were looking forward to checking out The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D this Halloween, you’re now going to have to wait until 2013. Lionsgate has moved the release date from it’s original October 5th spot to January 4th, 2013.
Directed by John Luessenhop, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D stars Alexandra Daddario, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley, Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz, Keram Malicki-Sanchez, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry, Paul Rae, and Richard Riehle. The new movie is not a remake and does not tie into the earlier remake from Platinum Dunes. Instead, this film is being developed as a direct sequel to the storyline from the original 1974 movie.
Taking its place in October is Sinister, a found footage horror film starring Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio. Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie also opens on October 5th and Paramount will release Paranormal Activity 4 on October 19th. »

Time to get out your pencils and erasers again, kids. Two films that are high on our radar are doing that ol' release date shuffle with Sinister taking over The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D's newly vacated October 5th slot.
Since it's been awhile since we've heard anything new about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, it's not a huge surprise it's been pushed back a few months from its original October 2012 date to January 4, 2013. All the better to let things get even more rotten in the state of Texas! Besides, January is proving to be almost as popular for horror films as October anyway.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's original film, is being directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms.
