Awards season, the longest season of the year, continues on. 

Today, the Directors Guild of America announced the five nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2014, meaning that statistically, one of these five people is very, very likely to win the Best Director Oscar when the Academy Awards put an end to this season of pomp and circumstance.

The nominees for the 67th Annual DGA Award are: Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Clint Eastwood for American Sniper, Alejandro González Iñárritu for Birdman, Richard Linklater for Boyhood, and Morten Tyldum for The Imitation Game.

David Fincher and Ben Affleck faced a bit of a pressure adapting Gone Girl, a popular bestseller.

Their reunion makes that look like a cakewalk, however.  The director and star are working with Gone Girl novelist/screenwriter Gillian Flynn to remake Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

There's an alternate universe where a Star Wars sequel is hitting theaters this May, but not the one directed by JJ Abrams.

George Lucas has revealed that he initially planned on directing Star Wars: Episode VII for release in May 2015, then selling Lucasfilm to Disney.

Caesar has stormed the Visual Effects Society: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads the nominees for the 13th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards, racking up a whopping five nominations.

Spy is doubling down on its first look, revealing not one but two trailers for the new Paul Feig movie starring Melissa McCarthy.

20th Century Fox just released both a red and green band trailer for the action-comedy that once again pairs the director and star who've proven they're great tastes that taste great together.

Amazon is on a roll.  Its original series, Transparent, won two Golden Globes on Sunday.

Now Amazon Studios has scored a major coup, enlisting none other than Woody Allen to write and direct his first television series.

David Arquette is so much more than just an actor! He is also a writer, producer, director, nightclub and clothing line owner, comic book creator, musician, and former WCW World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion. But acting is his first true love.

Arquette has appeared in many popular films including Where the Day Takes You, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Never Been Kissed, Muppets from Space, Ready to Rumble, and Eight Legged Freaks. But he is probably best known for playing Deputy Dewey Riley in director Wes Craven’s Scream series. Arquette also wrote and directed 2006’s The Tripper, and will appear in the upcoming Western Bone Tomahawk with Kurt Russell and Richard Jenkins. But first, he can be seen in the new Civil War film Field of Lost Shoes, which is currently available on VOD and DVD.

Field of Lost Shoes is based on the true story of the American Civil War, culminating at the Battle of New Market, May 1864. In the film a group of teenage cadets sheltered from war at the Virginia Military Institute must confront the horrors of an adult world when they are called upon to defend the Shenandoah Valley. Leaving behind their youth, these cadets must decide what they are fighting for. In addition to Arquette, the film features a terrific cast that includes Jason Isaacs (Fury), Keith David (Platoon), Lauren Holly (Any Given Sunday) and Tom Skerritt (Top Gun). The movie was directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer), and written by first time screenwriters Thomas Farrell and Dave Kennedy.

Before the holidays, I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with David Arquette about his work on Field of Lost Shoes, as well as Bone Tomahawk. The accomplished actor and entrepreneur discussed his new movie, how he got involved with the film, preparing to play a Civil War soldier, if he stays in character on set, what he needs from a director, choosing projects, if he still enjoys acting, Bone Tomahawk, making a Western, and working with Kurt Russell and Richard Jenkins.

Considering just how ominous the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is, Marvel might've considered Avengers Disassemble as an alternate title.

The long, long search for a director to sell some action figures with G.I. Joe 3 may finally have come to an end.

D.J. Caruso is in talks to take over as helmer on the sequel, which Paramount is still hoping to have in theaters at some point in 2016.

Ex Machina made our list of ten potentially excellent gems coming up in 2015.

A pair of clips from Alex Garland's feature directorial debut will give you a good idea why: they're both stripped down, thoughtful slices of science fiction far more concerned with big ideas and mood than with blowing shit up.

A big sampling of images from the film, meanwhile, show plenty of leading men Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander as sexy robo-lady Ava, and even Garland in action behind the scenes.
