Now that ABC has finally confirmed the inevitable and sent “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” to series, they've begun phase two naturally by marketing the bejesus out of it. A seven-second micro-teaser dropped on Friday, but now you can catch the first real glimpse of Agent Coulson’s second coming on TV.

It's funny how the complaints subside if a Kickstarter project is taken on by someone you like. For example: last summer screenwriter/director Charlie Kaufman and former "Community" writer/producer Dan Harmon (two pretty successful guys in their own right) hit the crowdfunding site looking for backers to help get the stop-motion animated "Anomalisa" off the ground. And they certainly didn't face Zach Braff-ian levels of discontent and went on to quietly double their $200,000 goal. And with some cash already in hand, they're headed to Cannes hoping that the movie industry will now front the rest.

Recap: Christopher Guest's 'Family Tree' Gets Off To A Promising Start & Shows He Hasn't Lost His Touch

It's been seven far-too-long years since the last feature effort from Christopher Guest, and besides a failed pilot for the U.S. adaptation of the U.K. hit "The Thick Of It" and appearing alongside his regular roster players in a sketch for the 2012 Oscars, not much as been heard from him. But the writer/director is back at HBO with "Family Tree," a new comedy series that finds him back within the faux-doc aesthetic (which seemingly every sitcom uses now) and best of all, still retaining his touch for beautifully deadpan humor, rich wordplay and characters as odd as they are lovable too. In short, Guest hasn't lost a step.

Big business, big business: the actors behind "The Avengers" were smart to pick a week where "Iron Man 3" was making cash hand over fist to air out their salary grievances. The stats are pure gonzo for the third installment in the robot-man series, with the picture smashing expectations worldwide as it cruises towards a cool billion. By the end of this weekend, it will have eclipsed the domestic results of any non-"Iron Man" Marvel film aside from "The Avengers," though globally it's already the biggest of all Marvel superhero films behind last summer's billion dollar superhero team-up.

Yes, shot in the United States and in the English language, this is one that many will be paying attention to in the Competition slate at Cannes, and the first clip certainly is promising.

GRAND CENTRAL BY REBECCA ZLOTOWSKI, Lea Seydoux, Tahar Rahim
It looks like Marion Cotillard -- featuring in both James Gray's "The Immigrant" and Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" -- won't be the only one at Cannes this year with two movies to show off. Fellow French actress Lea Seydoux will strut her stuff in the main competition with the three hour (!) lesbian romance drama "Blue Is The Warmest Color." But flying a bit more under the radar on the Un Certain Regard slate is "Grand Central," where she'll co-star opposite "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim, in another romance that is throwing off some sparks.

Flowers, a brunch featuring eggs benedicts and mimosas, an ill-fitting spring sweater -- it’s Mother’s Day! Rather than bore you senseless with good movie mothers or create some awkward moments today with great movie mamas, we have compiled a list of 5 more of the worst movie moms. We began this endeavor a few months back with “5 Of The Worst Movie Moms,” and thanks to the holiday, we have an excuse to expand on the theme that may or may not make our mothers proud. From emotionally damaging to rising from the dead, these mothers are awful, horrible and terrifying, enough to spook you into making that dreaded weekly phone call to hear about your mother’s rhododendron and that darn squirrel that keeps eating all of the birdseed. Here’s to mothers and their ability to not turn you into a raging psychopath (we hope)!

Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby
This weekend Baz Luhrmann's gold-encrusted, glitter-covered, FM radio-fueled "The Great Gatsby" hit theaters, and while critics may be split, audiences turned up in droves. But it wasn't the easiest journey to the big screen. The expensive production underwent reshoots, was pushed back from its previously planned Christmas Day release last year, and some wondered if it was a sign that the movie was troubled. But undoubtedly, it's Luhrmann's vision through and through.
