Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
We’ve seen some intriguing teaser trailers for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” so far. One of the features a brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) in piece of “unified” propaganda from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) that gets jacked by members of the rebellion, namely Beetee (Jeffrey Wright). This is the type of insurgency that Snow will be looking to quell with swift vengeance and does really set the stage for “MockingJay, Part 1.” The rebellion is making plans.

"[David O. Russell] recently texted me at I think 4 in the morning, and he was like, 'I think I want to make a movie about the woman who invented the [Miracle] Mop. You want to do it?' " Jennifer Lawrence explained on “Live With Kelly and Michael” in March. "I was like, 'Yeah,' " she added. "I can just imagine David looking at somebody mopping and being like, 'Yeah, that's my next screenplay.' "

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Well, knock us down with a feather. We'd been positively fearing "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" from afar. It had a been a while since the franchise peaked, and on paper, the giant cast list seemed to promise another "X-Men: The Last Stand"-style mess at best. Plus director Bryan Singer's last film, "Jack The Giant Slayer," was by some distance the worst of his career, and early marketing materials made it look like 'DOFP' had a tiny scope that belied its budget (the second most expensive in Fox's history, after "Avatar"), and made it seem like some kind of mid-'90s vision of the future.

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.

X-Men: Days of Future Past
"X-Men: Days Of Future Past" drops in just a couple of weeks, and right now, the folks at Fox are spending a lot days of future planning for the franchise. "X-Men: Apocalypse" is already on deck for 2016, and "The Wolverine 2" continues to develop, even as Hugh Jackman plays forever coy about whether or not it's the last time he sports the mutton chops and fangs. But the studio is certainly hoping to make it easier on the actor who has to diet like crazy to get mad ripped to play Logan.

X-Men Days Of Future Past
We're less than three weeks away from mutants running amok in multiplexes nationwide. As you might (or might not) have been aware, during the credits to this weekend's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," there was a brief tease for "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." It was a rare moment of rival studios helping each other out, but if you had the same feelings we did about Marc Webb's sequel, you might've bailed as soon the credit reel started. We don't blame you. So if you did miss it, or want to see it again, Fox has dropped the clip online.

X-Men Days Of Future Past
The past little while has seen a lot of talk about where the X-Men franchise is going after "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and how it will lead into "X-Men: Apocalypse" and whatnot. And while that speculation is sorta interesting (even if the latter movie is still two year away), it might be nice to focus on 'DOFP' first. Well, Fox is doing just that, by dropping a brand-new clip from the movie today.

X-Men Days Of Future Past
Don't be fooled. While Fox is touting this as the final trailer for "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," there is still a long month ahead before it hits theatres. And in that time, we're sure there will be no shortage of featurettes, clips, Instagram vids, Vines, skywriting and more for Bryan Singer's ambitious franchise entry. But before that, yes, it's the final trailer for the movie.

Serena
Shot before "American Hustle," but still unreleased, a big question mark remains stamped on Susanne Bier's "Serena" starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. We know that Steven Soderbergh watched some version of it in 2013, but since the first image dropped in 2012, there has been pretty much total silence. Late last year, reports surfaced that the movie had been quietly screening for distributors, but it says something that months later, there has been no official deal announced, even though heavyweights like The Weinstein Company and Fox Searchlight has been circling. So, is it a troubled production or just a director trying to get it right?

American Hustle
For all the dumb “American Hustle” vs. “Wolf Of Wall Street” bickering by critics (which prompted New York Times doyen A.O Scott to scold folks on Twitter,) what did it land both films? Zero Oscars. For David O. Russell’s film, being nominated for 10 Academy Awards and receiving none must have hurt. But with the Oscars in the past, Sony can concentrate with the here and now as “American Hustle” is available on DVD and Blu-Ray this week.
