Man, it's been way too long since word of a new Nic Cage movie. But rest assured, he's bringing his trunk full of crazy wigs to a brand new film, and it sounds as improbable as everything else he's done recently.

Boom! That sound you hear is Paramount pretty much destroying any memory of "G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra." The moderately successful movie was pretty much hated by critics (with good reason), and the fanboy core were also disappointed and probably didn't buy as many action playsets as Hasbro had hoped. But hey, a brand is a brand is a brand, and it must be continued, public indifference be damned! So here we have "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (see, it already sounds edgier!) and now, the final poster has been unleashed on the masses. Can you handle it?

When Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" was first announced, it was described as not a sequel to "Knocked Up" by Universal even though the film is clearly a look at the lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) a few years after the events of that film. Now the new poster (like the recent trailer) plays with that tag describing the film as the "sort-of sequel to 'Knocked Up'. " Nice wink at that original claim, Uni.

While we're not even halfway through the cinematic year, we can pretty much guarantee that few movies will have a finale as brazen, bizarre, absurd and thrilling as William Friedkin's black as coal comedy/thriller "Killer Joe." But then again, there are few movies out there like it. Stamped with an NC-17 rating by the MPAA (likely due to that climatic scene), LD Entertainment is bravely soldiering on with a theatrical release (good for them) and the trailer has now arrived.

Todd Solondz returns this summer with a brand new film, and while it looks like the director behind behind such controversial fare as "Welcome To The Dollhouse," "Happiness" and "Storytelling" is going a bit more mainstream, don't be fooled. Containing his usual wry observational wit and incisive viewpoint, "Dark Horse" finds him once again exploring some fascinating characters trying to find their place in the world. And we've got the exclusive premiere of the trailer to give a taste of what's in store.

How great was that first trailer for Oliver Stone's “Savages”? It promised that the star-studded cast of the film may have rejuvenated its flailing helmer, who’s become more associated with titles like “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” and “World Trade Center” as of late, over his far more diverting and controversial fare like "JFK," “Platoon,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “Born on the Fourth of July.” Stone worked on the screenplay for the film with author Don Winslow, who also wrote the book on which it is based, and now Winslow seems to be carrying some of the cachet he may be earning from “Savages” to his next project.

'Scary Movie 5' To Mainly Be A Parody Of 'Black Swan,' Anna Faris Not Returning

Spoof movies have never been particularly well regarded. When they’re good, like the original 1980 “Airplane,” they deftly satirize many tropes of your favorite films while also creating laughs derived from their own comedic situations. When they’re bad, they’re most likely directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the title ends with the word “Movie,” and they spend most their time recreating your favorite scenes from films in an exacting manner infused with Carmen Electra and potty humor. The “Scary Movie” films have always fallen somewhere between the highs and lows of that spectrum, with the franchise's early releases hitting at a time when the horror market was ripe with films containing casts that consisted mostly of The WB alumni, with titles like “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” reaching the point of franchise exhaustion. There was plenty of material to work with, and, admittedly, the brothers Damon and Marlon Wayans actually gave audiences a raunchy good time at the movies with the first installment in 2000.

Producer Ben Smith Talks 'The Bourne Legacy' & The Status Of Robert Ludlum Adaptations In Development

While the works of Robert Ludlum inspired a handful of movies through the '70s, '80s and '90s, it was the 'Bourne' series of films that truly brought his books to life on the big screen in a vital way. Jason Bourne has already become the basis for a certain kind of hero or thriller, and the trilogy of films starring Matt Damon have made an indelible mark on the action movie landscape. However, when Universal, Greengrass and Damon parted ways during the development of a planned 'Bourne 4,' the future of the franchise was a question mark. Enter Ben Smith. A former agent who represented the Ludlum estate, and a producer at Captivate Entertainment, he helped get 'Bourne' back on its feet, and the result is Tony Gilroy's upcoming "The Bourne Legacy" starring Jeremy Renner. The film arrives later this summer, adding a new chapter to the series Ludlum birthed.
