Palo Alto
The name Coppola carries with it some weight, not just because of the legacy already attached to Francis Ford Coppola, but also the oeuvre carved out by Sofia Coppola. But now Gia Coppola (Francis' granddaughter) is getting in the family way with "Palo Alto," her debut feature film and a new trailer is here as it gears up to hit theaters.

At just 22, Emma Roberts (“It's Kind of a Funny Story,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever”) is about the same age her aunt Julia was when she shot to stardom with the iconic hit “Pretty Woman.” But times have changed, and in Emma’s latest rom-com — Scott Coffey’s “Adult World,” which premiered this week at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival — she plays not a hooker with a heart of gold, but a virginal Syracuse graduate.

We've all had those post-collegiate jobs, the ones that keep the bills paid until real work comes along. Whether it's slinging fries, holding down a cubicle in a call center or working a retail counter, it's the kind of experience that in the best of times will build character or at the very least serve up some good anecdotes down the road. And we're sure once Emma Roberts' Amy Anderson moves on from "Adult World," she'll have some stories to tell as well.

Delirium
Every year, TV networks typically order about a dozen pilots, then later decide which shows should be made into a series. These networks never have more than a handful of timeslots available, which means the majority of pilots ultimately never see the light of day. Last spring, “Delirium” was one of those pilots. It starred Emma Roberts as a 17-year-old girl who lives in a dystopian future where love is outlawed. Her character, of course, winds up falling in love. The show was based on the young adult novel by Lauren Oliver and it was rejected by Fox in favor of “Sleepy Hollow” and “Almost Human.”

While John Boyega broke out in a big way thanks to his magnetic turn in "Attack the Block," we haven't seen much from the actor since. He's taken small roles in some films that never really took ("Inkheart," "Half of a Yellow Sun") and he's at Sundance this week with "Imperial Dreams." But he's about to launch back into some major attention.

Premiering last spring at the Tribeca Film Festival and then not seen elsewhere for the rest of 2013, we had nearly forgotten about "Adult World." But the comedy is very much back on the radar with a brand new trailer ahead of its release next month.

Over the past few weeks, "American Horror Story: Coven" has piled on the craziness, to the point that the show occasionally felt overwhelming, like a giant toppling tower of racist, flesh-eating zombies that are also possessed and on fire. Mercifully, this week's episode, "The Dead," written by co-creator Brad Falchuk, gave us time to pause and catch our breath a little bit before the next round of blood-drenched mayhem.

Cinema's just about old enough at this point that we've seen a few three-generation acting dynasties—the Fondas, the Hustons, the Barrymores. But if there's a family that's produced three generations of directors, they're certainly escaping us right now. But enter Gia Coppola. The 26-year-old is, as you might imagine from the surname, the granddaughter of "The Godfather" helmer Francis Ford Coppola, which makes her the niece of his director children Sofia and Roman (Gia's father, Gian-Carlo, was Francis' eldest, killed in a boat accident in 1986 not long after her conception).

It can't be film festival season without at least a couple projects involving James Franco and 2013 is no different. Over the coming weeks we're going to see yet another film directed by the prolific polymath and another based on his book of stories, which he will star in. So let's dive right in.

Tribeca Review: 'Adult World' Spins A Quirky Comedy That Doesn't Quite Come Together

The very first scene of "Adult World" should immediately set off warning bells. It's a glimpse of heroine Amy (Emma Roberts) as she contemplates suicide in much the same way someone goes about stacking bills; without weight, as if it's something of an eternal hassle. Except her worried countenance and the Sylvia Plath poster on the wall suggests she's being serious, and that this is supposed to be mildly funny that someone is sweating the details of suicide, even though this character already looks as if she's not taking this seriously. It's a confused way to introduce the audience to a character, as both suicidal and half-hearted.
