Read More: Watch: New Trailer For Tiff Crowdpleasing Math Drama 'X+Y' With Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins & Rafe Spall Formerly titled "X+Y" when it debuted at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, Morgan Matthews' coming-of-age drama finally hit theaters this summer under the title "A Brilliant Young Mind." Starring Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins and Rafe Spall, the film is a narrative take on Matthews' 2007 documentary "Beautiful Young Minds." Both films earned acclaim for their authentic depictions of what it's like living with autism. Butterfield stars as Nathan, an autistic teenage math prodigy being mentored by his unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys (Spall). When it becomes clear that his talents are enough to earn him a place on the British team competing at the highly-revered International Mathematics Olympiad, Nathan heads to Taiwan for an unforgettable, life-affirming journey.

Just a few months after Sony Pictures set their Jumanji remake for a Christmas 2016 release, the studio has finally found its director. Deadline reports that Jake Kasdan (Sex Tape) has signed on to direct, although it isn't known when production will get under way. With the studio still sticking with its December 25, 2016 release, date, filming will most likely have to begin fairly soon.
The project has been in development for several years, with Zach Helm coming aboard to write the script back in 2012. The most current version of the script was written by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) and Jeff Pinkner. Our report from October revealed that Jeff Pinkner, who co-created CBS' summer TV series Zoo with Scott Rosenberg, was coming on board to consult with the script, alongside André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio, »
Ah, the first Monday of the year, when your alarm sounds more obnoxious than it ever has before, and you wake and brush the last of the sleep and celebration from your eyes only to see 2016 bearing down on you like a big lumbering CGI kraken. Well, never fear because as soon as your well of post-holidays water-cooler chit-chat has run dry, and assuming you've already pored through our practically infinite Best of 2015 coverage, there's the first part of the Playlist's massive 100 Most Anticipated Movies of the Year to sift through. We're pretty sure you're going to have much warmer and fuzzier feelings toward 2016 at the end of it, so let's jump right in. 100.

Among the sequels and reboots, there are also some exciting-looking original sci-fi films to look forward to in 2016. And here they are...
Did you see Coherence? Or maybe Predestination? They’re but two examples of relatively low-budget, original genre films that were both beautifully made and endlessly watchable. What they lacked in expensive special effects they more than made up for in mesmerising concepts and superb performances, whether it was from a cast of relative unknowns in Coherence or the perfect pairing of Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook in Predestination.
Only time will tell whether 2016 will play host to films as good as those, but we have to say, there are some potentially great sci-fi films on the horizon this year. Some have generous budgets and top-line casts, others are independently produced. For different reasons, all look well worth keeping an eye on...

New Year, new broom. Or rather mop in the case of Jennifer Lawrence, as her latest movie Joy rolls into cinemas. She takes the role of entrepreneurial dynamo Joy (based on Joy Mangano), inventor of a revolutionary cleaning product that carries her to fame on a sea of elbow grease.
It doesn’t sound like something that’ll polish off the competition at the box office, yet one look at the roster of talent involved suggests this isn’t the film you might expect, directed as it is by one of the ultimate left-field helmers, David O Russell.
In Hollywood, the best offerings are usually those with the best ideas, and as innovative personalities are all about snappy concepts they make perfect camera fodder for the moviemaking machine.
So join us on the path to enlightenment as we bring you some of celluloid’s best thinkers from outside the box. »
