It is not hard to imagine a world without Steven Seagal movies. Video store bargain bins would be that bit emptier, late night TV schedules would be spotted with sad 90-minute bursts of white noise, and the on-board entertainment industry that services 3rd-class long-distance South American buses would be hard hit, but otherwise, life would probably go on as normal.

Well, there are two version of "Jane Got A Gun": the movie that could have been and the one we're going to get. As you well know, Lynne Ramsay was long attached to direct the western and had corralled a cast that include Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton. Then Fassbender left, and Jude Law joined. Then Ramsay left. Then Gavin O'Connor joined. Then Law left. Then Bradley Cooper joined. Still with us?

Bananas and ice cream sandwiches -- if you're a fan of "Arrested Development" you already know what those things mean to show, and if you don't, you should be catching up on all three seasons right now before the batch of new episodes hit Netflix next month. All this to say, there are three new posters for the upcoming not-really-a-season, and with both Jason Bateman and David Cross currently on the interview rounds for their respective indies ("Disconnect" and "It's A Disaster"), the inevitable question about the potential movie keeps rearing its head.

Destiny swings a big stick in Brian Helgeland's "42." It underlines every pivotal moment of Jackie Robinson's career captured in the two hour film, often working as baggage keeping the film earthbound, at times making it unnecessarily weighty. It's also probably the major reason why a number of mainstream critics will wag a finger at this unapologetic, old-fashioned hero yarn seemingly stitched from the similarly modest DNA of 1950's "The Jackie Robinson Story." What seems like a high fidelity to history is actually an acknowledgement and deep respect, the kind most modern filmmakers and viewers would likely find alien.

One movie that is most certainly on list of movies to see in 2013 is still without a U.S. distributor despite boasting the name of Michel Gondry in the director's chair, and a cast that includes familiar arthouse faces Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris and Omar Sy. So far, we've certainly been piqued by what we've seen -- a good serving of Gondry whimsy, combined with an adaptation of a beloved novel by Boris Vian -- and these five new clips certainly raise the stakes a bit more.

"Elysium," the latest from "District 9" writer/director Neill Blomkamp, has finally been brought kicking and screaming into the public view, with the first trailer dropping last night. And the result? Looks pretty damn epic, no? But don't get too confident you've seen everything yet. Blomkamp likely still wants to keep some surprises in store, but a few more new images have arrived to give another peek at the sci-fi world being put together.

It doesn't seem to a complete summer movie season with something from Micheal Bay, and while "Pain & Gain" will likely not feature the sort destruction the filmmaker has be wreaking with this robot toy franchise, it's still probably going to be unlike anything else you see over the next few months. Bodybuilders, kidnapping, extortion and the American Dream...yes, we're still talking about a Michael Bay movie.
