MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT is the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ (Godzilla) acclaimed low-budget indie Monsters. Tom Green (Misfits) makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu, and Gareth Edwards and Scoot McNairy returning as executive producers. The cast including Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, and Joe Dempsie.

Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the Infected Zones have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won. Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah’s unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company - the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill. The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all.

PASOLINI is an upcoming biographical drama film written and directed by legendary Italian filmmaker Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, King of New York, The Funeral, Welcome to New York) about the final days of Italian film director Pier Paolo Pasolini (played by Willem Dafoe), whose murder almost forty years ago remains a mystery. The film reunites Ferrara with Dafoe after New Rose Hotel, Go Go Tales, and 4:44 Last Day On Earth. It has been selected to compete for the Golden Lion at the 71st Venice International Film Festival, asnd also scheduled to be screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

Rome: on the night of November 2, 1975, the great Italian poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini is murdered. Pasolini is the symbol of an art that’s fighting against the power. His writings are scandalous, and his films are persecuted by the censors; many people love him and many hate him. The day of his death, Pasolini spends his last hours with his beloved mother and later with his dearest friends, until he finally goes out into the night in his Alfa Romeo in search of adventure in the eternal city. At dawn Pasolini is found dead on a beach in Ostia on the outskirts of the city. In a film dreamlike and visionary, blending reality and imagination, it reconstructs the last day in the life of this great poet.

A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE (Swedish: En duva satt på en gren och funderade på tillvaron) is a comedic drama directed by legendary Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson, which is the third part of a trilogy that began with Songs from the Second Floor and continued with You, the Living. The film has been selected to compete for the Golden Lion at the 71st Venice International Film Festival, and also scheduled to be screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

Like modern times’ Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two travelling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destinies. A trip that shows us the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humour and tragedy that is in us, life’s grandeur as well as frailty of humanity.

LEVIATHAN (Russian: Левиафан) is a Russian drama film directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev (The Return, Elena), starring Alexey Serebryakov, Elena Lyadova, Roman Madyanov, and Vladimir Vdovitchenkov. It was competed for the Palme d'Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where Andrey Zvyagintsev and Oleg Negin won the award for Best Screenplay.

The screenplay is a modern reworking of the Book of Job, which is a gripping parable of class, faith and corruption, centering on a land dispute between a small-time mechanic and his local authorities that reaps unimaginable consequences.

Kolia (Alexey Serebryakov) lives in a coastal village near the Barents Sea in Northern Russia, running an auto-repair shop from the garage of his childhood home, shared with young wife Lilya (Elena Lyadova) and his teenage son from a previous marriage. The family’s world is under threat: Vadim Sergeyich (Roman Madyanov), the imperious town Mayor, has slapped a compulsory acquisition order on Kolia’s prime land, earmarking the site for a development of undetermined but dubious funding (and offering risible, token compensation). To Sergeyich’s great surprise, Kolia enlists the help of ex-army friend Dmitri (Vladimir Vdovitchenkov), now a hotshot lawyer from Moscow. Dmitri has uncovered some highly incriminating evidence that he believes will force the Mayor to back down, even if he has secrets of his own. Soon tempers and passions are inflamed, events spiral out of control, and lives are placed at stake.

YOU’RE NOT YOU is an upcoming drama film directed by George C. Wolfe and written by Jordan Roberts and Shana Feste, based on a novel of the same name by Michelle Wildgen. The film stars two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby), Emmy Rossum, Josh Duhamel, Ali Larter, Ernie Hudson, and Marcia Gay Harden.

Kate (Swank) is a suave, successful classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Bec (Rossum) is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate’s marriage to Evan (Duhamel) hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond. As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec – and vice versa – both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.

THE REWRITE is an upcoming romantic comedy film written and directed by Marc Lawrence. It stars Hugh Grant as a washed-up screenwriter who begins teaching at a small college and Marisa Tomei as a single mom with whom the screenwriter finds romance. This marks the fourth consecutive collaboration between Lawrence and Grant after Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, and Did You Hear About the Morgans?.

Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Grant) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching fifty and hasn’t written a hit film in years. Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to turn when he meets Holly (Tomei). A single mum working two jobs to earn her degree, the pair find themselves connected by their mutual need for a second chance. Bella Heathcote, Allison Janney, JK Simmons, and Chris Elliott round out the supporting cast.

ROSEWATER is an upcoming drama film written and directed by Jon Stewart, based on the memoir Then They Came for Me by Maziar Bahari and Aimee Molloy. The film marks the directorial debut of Jon Stewart, and starring Gael García Bernal (Amores Perros, The Motorcycle Diaries).

The story follows the Tehran-born Bahari (Gael García Bernal), a journalist with Canadian citizenship. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who was the challenger to president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi’s supporters protested Ahmadinejad’s victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself as “Rosewater,” who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days. With Bahari’s wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and media outlets keeping the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government.
