Palo Alto
James Franco, his "Palo Alto" co-star Emma Roberts, Zachary Quinto and Chris Zylka are all aboard "Michael," which packs a powerful story behind a bland title. Based on the 2011 New York Times article "My Ex-Gay Friend," the story follows an anti-gay "Christian minister from Wyoming who was so entrenched in gay culture before he rejected his homosexuality, he founded a gay youth magazine."

Adèle Exarchopoulos
Despite roles in blockbusters like “Prometheus,” “Thor” and “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba still hasn’t had that one role that would catapult him into a household name—sorry, “The Wire” doesn’t count—but he’ll be getting his shot at the spotlight with the previously-announced action vehicle “Bastille Day.”

Palo Alto
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).

Palo Alto
The teenage experience is both universal and distinct, and channeling that specific feeling and make it feel authentic, and free of cliché is no easy feat. And Gia Coppola — yes, granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola — went down that tricky path for her debut feature film "Palo Alto," and the good news is she got it. Our review out of Venice called the film "strong and soulful," and today we have a little look at "Palo Alto" to take you into the world Coppola has put on screen.

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.
