James Mangold joins the craze of directors making the crossover into comic book films with Hugh Jackman taking center-stage as the most popular mutant, The Wolverine. This one promises to be the Wolverine movie we’ve always wanted, so expectations are high. Not one to break tradition, Woody Allen submits his yearly film installment with Cate Blanchett-starring-drama Blue Jasmine. Blanchett has been drawing some early praises for her performance under Woody’s direction. Aubrey Plaza drives a raunchy coming-of-age comedy in The To Do List and Wes Bentley makes a welcome return to acting in The Time Being.
