Sipping hot tea on a recent morning in Studio City, the Russian-born actor Anton Yelchin could have passed for one of the thousands of scruffy, out-of-work musicians who roam the Valley with unruly hair, an aura of angst and their "Repo Man" wardrobes. Yelchin, still eager to prove himself after almost a decade making feature films, was a practiced study in low-profile excitement. "These two movies," he said, "are special." Special indeed. This month, Yelchin has an appointment with fanboy-film destiny.

It's not easy for a fantasy franchise to nimbly establish an elaborate back story, but "Odd Thomas" pulls it off with breezy matter-of-factness in its opening scenes.

Anton Yelchin is trying to hold back his tears. But it's a losing battle. His blue eyes well up. His voice cracks. The 12-year-old has been reeling with pain and fear since the terrorist attacks on New York and the Pentagon and he wants to get his feelings off his chest.

I am proud to live in a country where people love their country so much.

Last year, Anton Yelchin, 21 and coming off his performance as Chekov in the film "Star Trek," was sitting nervously in the bar of a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles, waiting for a woman five years his senior. On a flight from London, his dinner companion, the British actress Felicity Jones, was also trying to squelch the butterflies. "I remember thinking, 'I just hope he's a good guy,'" she recalled. The two were indeed rendezvousing to see whether they'd make a good couple — only not in real life.

Drake Doremus has always been a bit of a prodigy, a filmmaker who combines the energy and enthusiasm of the 27-year-old he is with an old soul sensibility wise enough to value emotional honesty and capture it on film. Those gifts are showcased in Doremus' impeccable "Like Crazy," his third feature in three years to play either Sundance or Slamdance. While his previous films displayed more of a comic sensibility, "Like Crazy," which debuts Saturday in Sundance's dramatic competition, is definitely for those who want to be touched by the poet.
