Boyhood
As far as experiments go, Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was a real roll of the dice. Would a drama shot for a few days each year, chronicling the real-time (but fictional) coming-of-age of a young boy, work when all the material is cut together? Well, the answer from the Sundance and Berlin film festivals was a resounding "yes," and new images from the epic film have arrived.

A couple of years ago writer-director Noah Buschel unleashed his tiny, deeply affecting "Sparrows Dance,"a movie set in a single apartment, with only two characters. For his highly anticipated follow-up (at least by us), he has expanded his palette considerably, this time tackling a modestly scaled crime drama about a down-on-his-luck former boxer (Corey Stoll from "House of Cards") who becomes embroiled in the criminal operation of a weirdo gangster/restaurateur (Billy Crudup), all while struggling to maintain his longtime romantic relationship (Marin Ireland, who starred in "Sparrows Dance"). It's one of the best movies you'll see at this year's Tribeca Film Festival and what's more—we've got an exclusive clip.

The Expendables 3
Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need.

Bears
It seems fitting that Disney, a studio that has had such a solidly illustrious history with anthropomorphic bears (between Winnie the Pooh, the Country Bears at Disneyland and Br'er Bear from "Song of the South," all the way up to the magical bears that populated Pixar's Oscar-winning "Brave"), would circle back and focus an entire film on the actual animals. This year's Disneynature documentary, "Bears," features honest-to-goodness Alaskan bears, the kind that wake up from a snowy den and spend all year gathering food for the next winter. What's amazing about the documentary, though, is that it's oftentimes just as engaging as the Disney bears that play in jug bands or crave ooey-gooey honey.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
After Marvel's "The Avengers" made a billion dollars, and became the third highest grossing movie of all time, rival studios freaked. And so, they began to plot their own massive, cinematic comic universes while also spending big money on their properties, hoping to join Marvel in the billion dollar club. Ambitious goals, but can everyone do it?

Preservation
The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing, which means an array of quality dramas will be on display for audiences. But sometimes, you just want to feel you pulse quicken and have a good old fashioned thrill, and that's what Christopher Denham ("Home Movie") is hoping to provide with his sophomore directorial effort, "Preservation."

In Your Eyes
You would think with all things Marvel on his plate, Joss Whedon wouldn't have time for much else, but you'd be wrong. Last year he dropped the indie Shakespearean tale "Much Ado About Nothing," and now he's headed into the Tribeca Film Festival as the writer and executive producer of the metaphysical romance "In Your Eyes." And today we have a little treat for you from the film.

Mrs. Doubtfire
Wait, didn’t Mrs. Doubtfire die in a fire? True story: I’ve never seen “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the 1993 comedy about a divorced actor so psychotic and unhinged he disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. And I’d rather take a chainsaw to my scrotum than ever see it, frankly (the painful bits I’ve seen on TV over the years were enough, thank you very much).

Lost River
The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup is here, so now we can spend the next month trying to get as much intel on the movies as possible before they screen for critics and cinephiles on the Croisette. And of course, that means lots of images are here, so let's dive into three playing in Competition.
