Hovering around the twenty-one to twenty-four feature film mark with at least a quarter of those films belonging to first time filmmakers, the Quinzaine des Realisateurs (a.k.a Directors’ Fortnight) has in the past couple of years, counted on a healthy supply of French, Spanish and Belgium produced film items, and has been geared towards the offbeat genre items as with last year’s edition curated by Edouard Waintrop and co. To be unveiled on the 22nd, as we attempted with our Critics’ Week predix, Blake Williams, Nicholas Bell and I (Eric Lavallee) are thinking out loud and hedging our bets on what the section might look like or what the programmers might be looking at for 2014. Here is our predictions overview:

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup
Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.
But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.

Is Divergent Sci-Fi’s First Successful Bisexual Allegory? »
With Amy Schumer writing and Judd Apatow directing, it’s coming together nicely for their new project Trainwreck and now we’ve got news of the ever-expanding cast list! Schumer was already confirmed to star alongside Bill Hader and Brie Larson and now there’s the addition of Tilda Swinton, Barkhad Abdi, John Cena, Ezra Miller, Jon Glaser, Mike Birbiglia, Colin Quinn (Girls) and Saturday Night Live‘s Vanessa Bayer. Quite the mixed bag of serious and comedy going on but, as we all know with Apatow, I’m sure he’ll find a spot for all.
As we previously reported, the plot is still a little secretive but we do know that the film revolves around writer and lead-role lady Schumer, who’s trying to rebuild her life with her boyfriend, best friend and parent or parents. Or could ‘plot details being kept under wraps‘ literally mean it’s »

Apatow will direct the comedy, with plot details currently being kept under wraps.
He has also co-written the script with comedienne Amy Schumer, who will star in the project.
Trainwreck is scheduled to be released on July 24, 2015.

Judd Apatow's next directorial effort, the Amy Schumer-written and -starring Trainwreck, has already cast its main supporting actors, Bill Hader and Brie Larson, so it's time for some classic Apatowian color. Variety reports Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena, Ezra Miller, and Tilda Swinton are all in different stages of talks. This would be Abdi's first major role since Captain Phillips, and we super hope his character ends up with Swinton's. »

Continuing his tradition of unexpected casting choices (Megan Fox in This Is 40, RZA in Funny People), Judd Apatow has made a number of surprising additions to the cast of his next directorial effort, Trainwreck. The film, which is scheduled for release next summer, is intended as a starring vehicle for rising comedienne Amy Schumer.
Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Oscar winner Tilda Swinton, WWE superstar/rapper John Cena, comedian Mike Birbiglia, SNL star Vanessa Bayer, The Perks of Being A Wallflower star Ezra Miller and Girls ensemble member Jon Glaser have all been added to the cast of Trainwreck, which previously boasted Schumer, Bill Hader, Colin Quinn and Brie Larson.
It will be interesting to see how Abdi and Cena are used in this film, as neither have a comedic background. Abdi’s only credit to date is Captain Phillips, while Cena’s acting experience has been limited »

Judd Apatow has beefed up the cast of his upcoming comedy Trainwreck, which will feature comedienne Amy Schumer as a woman attempting to rebuild her life. Already in the cast were Bill Hader, Brie Larson and Colin Quinn, but that list has grown in a big way today. Actors joining the cast include Tilda Swinton, Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser ("Girls"), Vanessa Bayer ("Saturday Night Life"), WWE star Jon Cena and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk about Kevin). I'm very hopeful Abdi's casting isn't stunt casting and he won't be playing himself because this could be great news for not only him, but the industry as we also learned Lupita Nyong'o is up for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII as well as a courtroom drama with Daniel Craig. While I'm sure you're familiar with most of the names in the cast, if you're not familiar with Schumer, »

Director Judd Apatow seems to be going about things very differently with his next feature film, Trainwreck. For starters, while he has written every other movie he has ever directed, for his new one he is letting star Amy Schumer hold the pen. The filmmaker is also well known for working with the same group of actors time and time again - including Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel etc. - but this time around he is going in a much different direction. The Wrap is reporting that Tilda Swinton, John Cena, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer and Ezra Miller are all now in various stage of negotiations to sign on for the upcoming comedy. There are very few details available about the movie, but we do know that Schumer will play the lead, a trainwreck of a woman who has managed to screw up every aspect »
• Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) is in talks to board Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck. The details of the comedy are being kept under wraps, but it stars Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, and Colin Quinn. Swinton would be joining as Schumer’s boss. Saturday Night Live’s Vanessa Bayer and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) also recently boarded the movie, set to hit theaters on July 24, 2015. Swinton is currently starring in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. She can be seen next opposite Tom Hiddleston in Jim Jarmusch’s vampire pic Only Lovers Left Alive »

George Takei: “I take no solace or joy in this man’s passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding “God Hates Freds” signs, tempting as it may be. He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.”

Her Sundance preemed Cold Souls, a zany, wry and at times acidic wink to Being John Malkovich-like and homage to Woody Allen was an overlooked oddity that worked with discriminating tastes and received a chickpea sized reception. A long six years later, we hope that her sophomore portrait and take on an a French classic feels fresh and falls along the lines of what Wuthering Heights turned out like under Andrea Arnold’s guise. Re-teaming with her hubby dp Andrij Parekh, Madame Bovary will definitely look the part and hopefully with the Ezra Miller and Mia Wasikowska pairing will bring us characters occupying hazardous emotional spaces. »

Whether they're bleak, shocking or sad, the endings to these 22 movies have haunted us for years...
Warning: There are spoilers to the endings for every film we talk about in this article. So if you don't want to know an ending for a film, then don't read that entry.
It's probably best to start by talking about what this article isn't. It's not a list of the best movie endings, the best twists, the most depressing endings or anything like that. Instead, we're focusing here on the endings that seeped into our brain and stayed there for some time after we'd seen the film. The endings that provoke in an interesting way, and haunt you for days afterwards.
As such, whilst not every ending we're going to talk about here is a flat out classic - although lots of them are »
