Godzilla
In case you haven't noticed, the forthcoming "Godzilla" doesn't have a whiff, suggestion or note of the campiness some of the previous incarnations of the movie monster may have had. And there's a very specific reason for that.

Glengarry Glen Ross
Is "The Wolf Of Wall Street" trailer the new "Downfall" when it comes to endless parodies? It's certainly on its way, as yet another one has crossed our desk and yes, it's well worth the watch. And it might just be for closers only.

The Quiet Ones
These days horror movies, for the most part, tend to come fast and cheap, with little in the way of craft other than loud noises and found footage aesthetics. But classic genre banner Hammer are doing things differently as they return to big screen productions. They scored a big hit with "The Woman In Black," a stylish and genuinely spooky ghost story and now they're back with "The Quiet Ones," another period tale that looks like it has an actual budget and something to say.

Maidan
You might not know his name, but Ukrainian filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa is no stranger to the Cannes Film Festival. In 2010 he appeared in competition with "My Joy," and returned to the category in 2012 with "In The Fog," picking up the FIPRESCI Prize for his efforts. And now he's back with a project that documents one of the most dramatic moments in recent history.

The Immigrant
Look, we know not all Photoshop artists were created equally, and perhaps poster art is not the domain for real art these days (folks like Neil Kellerhouse and Drafthouse artisans aside), but this recent poster for James Gray's upcoming indie drama "The Immigrant" is… let’s say politely, something else. Sure, even the original French poster had the three stars Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner photoshopped together like they were members of the European 'Avengers,' but this North American poster for the film butchers Cotillard's beautiful face.

Zack Snyder, Watchmen, Gilliam
Forbes has a new interview with director Zack Snyder. You know, the guy that’s directing possibly the most geek-anticipated film of all time, “Batman Vs. Superman.” Don’t get too excited, Snyder reveals almost zero details. He doesn’t talk Ben Affleck, Lex Luthor, the Justice League or anything. Perhaps more interestingly he discusses his beef with Terry Gilliam over “Watchmen.”

Boyhood
As far as experiments go, Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was a real roll of the dice. Would a drama shot for a few days each year, chronicling the real-time (but fictional) coming-of-age of a young boy, work when all the material is cut together? Well, the answer from the Sundance and Berlin film festivals was a resounding "yes," and new images from the epic film have arrived.

A couple of years ago writer-director Noah Buschel unleashed his tiny, deeply affecting "Sparrows Dance,"a movie set in a single apartment, with only two characters. For his highly anticipated follow-up (at least by us), he has expanded his palette considerably, this time tackling a modestly scaled crime drama about a down-on-his-luck former boxer (Corey Stoll from "House of Cards") who becomes embroiled in the criminal operation of a weirdo gangster/restaurateur (Billy Crudup), all while struggling to maintain his longtime romantic relationship (Marin Ireland, who starred in "Sparrows Dance"). It's one of the best movies you'll see at this year's Tribeca Film Festival and what's more—we've got an exclusive clip.

The Expendables 3
Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
After Marvel's "The Avengers" made a billion dollars, and became the third highest grossing movie of all time, rival studios freaked. And so, they began to plot their own massive, cinematic comic universes while also spending big money on their properties, hoping to join Marvel in the billion dollar club. Ambitious goals, but can everyone do it?
