Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgard in new 'What Maisie Knew' poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Kramer vs. Kramer continues to stand as one of the most memorable, heart-wrenching dramas about divorce and the battle for child custody. But way before the Dustin Hoffman/Meryl Streep-starrer, there was What Maisie Knew, a 1897 book by Henry James about a child shuffled back and forth between her two divorced parents every six months. That turn-of-the-century novel has now been updated for a modern retelling on the big screen, in a film starring Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgård.

EW has the exclusive poster for the movie that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. On the new one-sheet, Moore and Skarsgård peek in from the edges, while young actress Onata Aprile (Maisie) is front and center, boring her big eyes “Mona Lisa”-style into anyone who catches a glance of this striking poster — check it out below.

'The Hobbit: There and Back Again' release date pushed back

The third and final film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy will not be getting a summer release as previously planned. Warner Bros. has changed The Hobbit: There and Back Again‘s release date from July 18, 2014 to Dec. 17, 2014, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.

This means an epic showdown between two geektastic movies has been effectively canceled. The release date change gets The Hobbit: There and Back Again out of the way of X-Men: Days of Future Past and also brings it back to the time when all of Jackson’s other J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations have been released: mid-December, just in time for Christmas.

There and Back Again will follow The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which is set for Dec. 13, 2013.

But Life of Pi director Ang Lee took home the Best Director prize while Argo won Best Picture. You can check out the full list of winners below.

'John Dies at the End': Paul Giamatti and director Don Coscarelli talk about their demented horror-comedy

John-Dies-At-the-EndDirector Don Coscarelli is best known for the Phantasm horror series—about folks getting their brains drilled out by silver spheres—and 2002′s Bubba Ho-Tep, about a nursing home showdown between an Egyptian mummy and a man, played by Bruce Campbell, who believes himself to be Elvis. Doesn’t the filmmaker ever dream of making a nice, romantic-comedy? Seemingly not. Coscarelli’s latest offering is John Dies at the End, which stars Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes as a pair of slacker-types who gain the ability to travel to different dimensions after consuming a drug called “soy sauce” and Paul Giamatti as a journalist Williamson’s character recruits to tell their bizarre tale. And “bizarre” seems the appropriate word for a movie whose outlandish sights include a flying moustache, a door handle turning into penis, and a monster made from cuts of meat.

Sundance 2013: How 'C.O.G.'s young director finally convinced David Sedaris to go Hollywood -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Do you like apples? Do you like apples? Well, Kyle Patrick Alvarez convinced This American Life humorist David Sedaris to allow the 29-year-old filmmaker to adapt one of his essays. How you like them apples!

Hollywood had been knocking on Sedaris’s door for years, and he’d always turned suitors away. But Alvarez, whose promising first film, Easier with Practice, was based on a 2006 GQ article by another public-radio raconteur Davy Rothbart, took a more personal approach: he went to a Sedaris book signing. “I waited in line with everyone for him to sign my book after he read,” says Alvarez. “I tried not to be aggressive, but I gave him the a copy of my first film and said there were some things I’d like to talk to him about. I was incredibly anxious about it, but fortunately, he really liked the movie.”

They began exchanging emails, with Sedaris asking Alvarez why he specifically wanted “C.O.G.” — which stands for Child Of God — an essay from Naked, Sedaris’s best-selling 1997 collection. “It’s not like I went through every Sedaris story and tried to find the one to make into a movie,” says the 29-year-old, who also wrote the screenplay. “I liked this story. Had he not written it, and it was another writer, I would still have been incredibly interested and tried to make it into a film. There’s a coming-of-age aspect to it that I felt was really unique and particular.”

Apples, it must be said, do play a major role, as the exclusive Sundance poster reveals below. Glee‘s Jonathan Groff stars as an incredibly naive and condescending recent college grad who runs smack into the real world for the first time when he ventures West to work on an Oregon apple farm. “He starts out as this judgmental guy who thinks everyone’s going to be in awe of him, but then through the story learns how to appreciate people that he sees different than himself,” says Alvarez. “To me, the process of being humbled is very interesting.”

Three 'Catching Fire' characters you won't see in the movie -- EXCLUSIVE

Fans of Suzanne Collins’s  words, you can rest easy. The adaptation of the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire will be “very, very true to book,” promises new director Francis Lawrence.

This week’s cover story  describes the whirlwind few weeks that followed once director Gary Ross stepped away from the helm in April. “We were five months from when we needed to start shooting and we had no script and no director,” says producer Nina Jacobson. Once Lawrence came aboard, Jacobson put together her new director with series mastermind Collins to outline the script. Their main task, says Lawrence, was figuring out a way to best distill the novel’s dense first third, during which our hero Katniss Everdeen, home from her victory tour but tormented by the ghosts of war, struggles internally with her next move.

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994′s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006′s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.

Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY

'Ender's Game': Harrison Ford stares down Asa Butterfield in first photo -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who has read Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, can understand why, for the past 20 years, Hollywood has been unable to adapt the book. After all, it’s challenging enough to shoot a movie about pint-sized military recruits fighting each other in a futuristic, space-set Battle School, but it’s an even taller order to capture the novel’s complex themes about war and morality.

Fortunately for fans of the book, the long wait for a film adaptation is (almost) over. Ender’s Game will hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2013 (Summit Entertainment has just launched the film’s official Facebook page), and EW has your exclusive first look at the movie — as well as the first interview with director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).  READ FULL STORY
