Touted for awards consideration, the movie opens in theaters on November 14. [USA Today]



X-Men: Days of Future Past

Jeremy Saulnier, responsible for this year's crackling revenge flick Blue Ruin, wrote the script and is directing. Stewart joins Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat in the movie, which follows a young punk rock band forced to fight for their lives against a murderous gang of skinheads. [The Wrap]


John Carter

John Carter: Despite earning more than $280 million at the worldwide box office in 2012, the fantasy adventure John Carter was viewed as a financial disappointment, in part because of its $250 million budget, and made Disney wary of additional installments. Now the estate of writer Edgar Rice Burroughs has reclaimed the rights and is seeking another studio partner to make more movies based on the 11 novels written by Burroughs about the character.
