Watch: Dan Marcus' Memory Sci-Fi Thriller Short 'Streamline' in Full

Streamline Short Film

Change the way you remember. If you're looking for something a bit different than all those Hollywood movies in theaters right now, then spend 12 minutes watching this short film titled Streamline. Directed by FS contributor Dan Marcus, the sci-fi thriller is about a man haunted by traumatic memories who's also being pursued by guys in grey outfits. It borrows a bit from Eternal Sunshine and the Spotless Mind, and has some Chris Nolan/Inception vibe going on, but it's a solid thriller with some sleek camerawork. It moves swiftly, and while the VFX aren't perfect, it's an intriguing indie sci-fi short to make you think. In full below.

Angelina Jolie to Direct Brad Pitt 'By the Sea' in New Intimate Drama

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

After finding success with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reteaming again, but on a completely different kid of film. In fact, this time Jolie will be directing the project called By the Sea, in addition to writing the script and starring in the film. However, there are absolutely no plot details on the film as it is simply called, "an intimate, character-driven drama" in which Pitt will also star. This will mark the third film Jolie has directing following In the Land of Blood and Honey and this year's Oscar contender Unbroken, the story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini (watch the trailer here).

Akiva Goldsman Producing Space Invaders' Video Game Adaptation

Space Invaders

It's been over three years since the last update on a film adaptation of the 80s video game Space Invaders surfaced, and at the time, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (behind such toy adaptations as the Transformers franchise and G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) and Gigi Pritzker of Odd Lot Entertainment had picked up the rights. But it sounds like they couldn't get the project together as The Wrap reports Akiva Goldsman, director of A Winter's Tale and producer of Lone Survivor and Hancock, is now behind a new initiative to adapt the game at Warner Bros. Pictures now. And if you know the premise of the game, the story could be anything.

First Look: Amy Schumer & Bill Hader in Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

Trainwreck

Not too long ago, we learned that Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei would pop up in Judd Apatow's new comedy Trainwreck. The film is slated to hit theaters next summer with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in the lead roles, and a first look photo from the set in New York City has just popped up online. Schumer also wrote the script which is inspired from some of her real-life experiences as she plays "a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways.” Apatow also helped write the screenplay and really pushed Schumer to make it personal. We can't wait to see how Hader and Schumer work together.

One More 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Poster Shows Off The Collector

Guardians of the Galaxy

Since the credits teaser at the end of Thor: The Dark World featured Benicio del Toro as The Collector, it almost seems like we've gone full circle since the character now gets his own poster for next month's release of Guardians of the Galaxy. This should be the final character poster following other supporting characters like John C. Reilly and Glenn Close from Nova Corps and the trio of bad guys led by Ronan (Lee Pace) also got their own character posters, but with Marvel anything is possible. It would take someone like The Collector to round up all the Marvel character posters that get release with every new film. Look below!

Watch: Philip Seymour Hofman in 'A Most Wanted Man' Featurette

A Most Wanted Man

Next week, one of just two more performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman arrives in theaters in Anton Corbijn's quiet, stirring spy thriller A Most Wanted Man. We've already seen the great trailer (I saw the film at Sundance and loved it), but now we get a look behind the scenes, where we get to enjoy what little unseen footage we have of Hoffman still alive and making great movies. TIME debuted the featurette, and in it we also learn that Corbijn wanted Hoffman, before he passed away, to have a role in his forthcoming film Life starring Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan, but we'll never see it happen now. At least we get to enjoy this fantastic performance from an actor who is missed more everyday. Watch below!

'The Ring' Circles Back Around for a Third Time with All-New Sequel

The Ring

There was a time back in the early 2000s when Hollywood was obsessed with remaking Japanese horror films, thanks largely to the success of The Ring directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts. The film focused on one woman's encounter with a video tape that cursed its viewer to death after seven days. That was all the way back in 2002, and The Ring Two arrived a few years later in 2005. Now it's 12 years since the first film hit theaters, and Paramount Pictures thinks the time is now for a third film in the series. THR reports The Crow remake director F. Javier Gutierrez has been tapped to direct the film. Read on!

Watch: Cool 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' 17-Minute Featurette

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Now when we say cool, we mostly mean if you're a kid. Because this is a 17-minute special from Nickelodeon that goes behind the scenes of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So there's a lot of faux hype from Will Arnett and Megan Fox talking about making the film and showing some new footage. But what's really is cool is that they also talk to Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher, who play Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo (the voice of Leonardo is Johnny Knoxville though). There's plenty of cool stuff to see from the movie, though the video quality is a little low. Watch!

'Never Let Me Go' Director Mark Romanek Gets 'The Shining' Prequel

The Shining

After getting involved and falling away from various studio projects like Disney's new Cinderella, Universal's The Wolfman, and an adaptation of Dan Brown's The Last Symbol, director Mark Romanek is going to try his hand at another big studio film. Variety reports the Never Let Me Go and One Hour Photo director is in talks to be at the helm of The Overlook Hotel, the prequel to The Shining being set up at Warner Bros. With a script from "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara, and a classic predecessor from Stanley Kubrick, this is a hot commodity, but there's no telling whether Romanek will stick with it.

'Skyfall' Star Ben Whisaw Replacing Colin Firth as 'Paddington' Voice

Ben Whishaw / Paddington

Last month, following the debut of the very British teaser trailer for the upcoming family holiday release of Paddington, about the bear, we learned that Colin Firth would not be providing the voice of the title bear due to "conscious uncoupling." But now the film has a grand replacement as The Daily Mail has learned that Skyfall and Cloud Atlas star Ben Whishaw will lend his voice to the film instead. Much like Firth, Whishaw wasn't sure it was for him, "I resisted a little bit, because I had a bad experience doing this kind of work in the past and I thought I was no good at it. But I was persuaded to go, slightly grudgingly." Read on!

Review: 'The Purge: Anarchy' Triumphs Where Its Predecessor Tanked

The Purge: Anarchy

Future sequel-makers in the horror field should pay attention to The Purge: Anarchy. The follow-up to last summer's dystopian action/thriller does so much more with what this franchise has been given by writer/director James DeMonaco. With The Purge, DeMonaco envisioned a new America, one with minimal unemployment and even lower crime rate. The annual Purge, 12 hours when all crime, including murder, is perfectly legal, satisfies the animalistic cravings of the population. The first film was a wasted opportunity, confining itself to a single home invasion and not even doing a very good job of it. Unlike the citizens of the Purged nation, moviegoers weren't satisfied, demanding much more from the cool premise.

First Look: Adam Sandler & Peter Dinklage's Mullet Arrive in 'Pixels'

Pixels

Following the release of a comedy reunion between Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler earlier this summer in Blended, we're hoping the latter has something more enticing in store with his video game adventure Pixels, directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone). To hype the 2015 release, the first photo has arrived online showing Sandler along with Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage suited up like astronauts from Armageddon making a slow-motion hero's stroll through fog. Michelle Monaghan is there too, but the real star is Dinklage's ridiculously gross mullet. Look below!
