Space Station 76
The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes.

Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, Blunderer
It’s a casting-o-rama Friday. With Cannes around the corner and the entire industry getting together for their quarterly wheeling and dealing, it means a lot of pacts are being made. Perhaps the most interesting is the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel ‘The Blunderer.” She is obviously the writer of the Talented Mr. Ripley series and this non-Ripley-centered psychological thriller will star Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Toby Jones and Imogen Poots. Andy Goddard will direct.

Space Station 76
The retro-kitsch appeal inherent to “Space Station 76” is palpable from its star-gazing opening credits, rendered as they are in Gill Sans font (think “2001: A Space Odyssey”) with state-of-the-art CGI effects modeled on the miniature work of yesteryear. What follows is a sci-fi soap opera seemingly borne from the 1970s and only now seeing a release, and for a good while, that novelty alone seems strong enough to carry the film.

Watchmen
Time is a flat circle, and five years after it hit theaters, new criticisms and defenses surrounding "Watchmen" have emerged over the past few weeks. Producer Joel Silver got the ball rolling by dissing Zack Snyder's version, and the director in turn dissed Terry Gilliam, whose unmade version would've been far less faith faithful to Alan Moore's comic. And Gilliam then weighed in with his own typically cheeky response. So who's next?

Patrick Wilson doesn't do the blockbuster thing very often, and when he has — "Watchmen," "The A-Team" — the results have been mixed to say the least. But he's going to give it another shot, because when Marvel comes calling, you pick up the phone.

Insidious 2
No fewer than three times during “Insidious: Chapter 2,” the sequel to James Wan’s hit 2010 horror entry, its central clan of haunted suburbanites seems to address the audience directly. “It’s still happening!” they exclaim to one another, and it’s true – objects rattle and familiar apparitions re-emerge regularly. But these winking outbursts bring up a self-aware question that the film believes it will answer, then proceeds to spectacularly mishandle: Why, besides a stellar opening weekend, does this extended narrative exist?
