It’s hard to believe it, but the fall film festival circuit is fast approaching. Things kick off with the Venice Film Festival on August 27th, and today new images from three films that will be showcased in Italy have landed online. Briefly: Good Kill – Writer/director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) returns to timely material by telling the story of a Las Vegas-based drone pilot. The film stars Ethan Hawke and January Jones. Your Right Mind – Actress Katherine Heigl fronts director Ami Canaan Mann’s (Texas Killing Fields) contemporary romance as a former country singer fighting for custody of her daughter.

Alba Rohrwacher and Roberta Maxwell also star. »

Debut images from a pair of upcoming films being shopped at Cannes have been officially unveiled. Firstly, the How to Make Love to An Englishman image reveals star Pierce Brosnan in the “sexually charged and sophisticated romantic comedy” from director Tom Vaughn (What Happens in Vegas). Brosnan plays a Cambridge University professor who meets his match in Salma Hayek, but is forced to face the music when a complicated romantic entanglement emerges with her graduate student stepsister, played by Jessica Alba. The film is currently in post-production but doesn’t yet have a release date. Additionally, the first Your Right Mind image highlights star Katherine Heigl as a former country singer fighting for custody of her daughter.

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...
Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.
Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »
