X-Men: Days of Future Past
The perils of time travel plotting, and maintaining continuity and story logic, within the framework of an already-fantastical superhero universe, are not enviable for any filmmaker. But credit the folks behind “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” for not only negotiating the tricky liabilities of rewriting history, but also creating a world (and story) where if the timestream logic crumbles, it ultimately matters little.

Naomi Watts hit a brief career rough patch following her Oscar nominated turn "The Impossible." A couple of indies—"Adore" and "Sunlight Jr."—were barely seen, while she was savaged ruthlessly by critics for last year's biopic flop "Diana." But she's got a very promising slate coming up with roles in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," the buzzed "Saint Vincent De Van Nuys" and Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young." And she's adding yet another auteur to her filmography.

X-Men: Days of Future Past
The day of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is soon, everybody. It'll be everywhere next week, and in this day and age (rather than some alternate, sideburn-filled '70s past) that means lots and lots of clips and snippets and featurettes all over the place for the next few days. So here are some which apparently are technically called “power pieces.” Sounds like Wolverine's euphemism for his, ahem, claws.

Frankie & Alice
A 1970s set drama about a young black woman suffering from personality disorder? If that doesn't tick a few obvious Oscar boxes, we don't know what does, and Halle Berry certainly thought she'd have another shot at an award. Way back in 2010, "Frankie & Alice" was being positioned as a contender, but it barely made ripple and wound up sitting on a shelf for four years awaiting the light of day. Well, that day arrives this weekend and eight clips have dropped to compel you to give in to your curiosity.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Marc Webb
Were it not for the encouragement of Sony chief Amy Pascal, Marc Webb revealed at SXSW last week, “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its upcoming two sequels would’ve passed right by the “(500) Days of Summer” director’s path as “the stupidest thing” he’d ever heard. As vibrant a studio playground as the Marvel franchise has been for Webb the last few years, we’ve been eager to see what he can do outside it, and now it appears he’s been having similar thoughts.

Frankie & Alice
Once upon a time, way, way back in 2010, Halle Berry was gunning for her second Oscar nomination (after winning for "Monster's Ball") with "Frankie & Alice." At the time, it was an indie film without a major studio behind it, but that didn't deter the actress, who was hoping her turn as a mentally ill woman would garner some attention. It didn't. Now here we are four years later, with the movie quietly headed to theaters.

Eli Roth Jesus Demon
While most moviegoers found the logical and incomprehensible limits of pairing an iconic figure to a wacky occupation this past year with “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," The History Channel has spotted new potential in the idea. Once the host to actual fact-based programming, the cable network now aims to expand upon its massively successful miniseries of “The Bible," by taking the same general concepts and adding—what else?—an appropriately bizarre supernatural twist.

Joining the forthcoming limited series takes on “Fargo” and “The Exorcist,” Deadline is reporting that the Bradley Cooper-starring vehicle “Limitless” will get a small-screen adaptation of its very own.

Do you add even more actors or do you think, "Y'know, maybe I'm good right here." Well, Bryan Singer was recently faced with this dilemma and made a choice. Can you guess which way he went?
