There's a lot of big hitters arriving in theaters next summer; "Iron Man 3," "Man Of Steel," "The Lone Ranger," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Great Gatsby," "The Wolverine," "Elysium." But if you'd asked us this morning what our most anticipated film of the warm months of 2013 was going to be, we wouldn't have even had to think before we answered "Pacific Rim." For the most part, it's because it's the first film in five years from director Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth"). Although that it features giant robots and giant monsters kicking the holy living shit out of each other, and that it has a very strong script to be working from are other good reasons why we're excited (and why Warner Bros have already commissioned a script for a sequel).

"Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't in any way use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience," executive producer Christopher Nolan recently told us. "Zack [Snyder] has built on that and I think it's incredible what he's putting together." And after seeing this? We totally agree.

Looking for the next candidate to fit into that British-indie-director-who-goes-A-list-Hollywood category? Someone to follow in the footsteps of Christopher Nolan, Rupert Wyatt, and "The Disappearance Of Alice Creed" director J. Blakeson? A strong contender is emerging in the shape of Eran Creevy, who made a storming debut with the microbudget "Shifty" a few years ago, a low-key drama that featured top-notch performances from Daniel Mays and Riz Ahmed, and oodles of filmmaking talent behind the camera.

Watch: Promising Teaser Trailer For Ken Watanabe's Japanese Language 'Unforgiven' Remake

While many in the online film community are quick to bemoan any announcements of remakes, not an eye was batted when it was announced earlier this year that Clint Eastwood’s seminal 1992 western “Unforgiven” would be remade into a Japanese-language film set in 1880s Japan. That’s probably largely due to both the long and storied history of Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films being refashioned into Westerns and the inspired choice to swap out the archetypical gunslinger for the lone samurai. And the trailer that dropped yesterday (via Twitch) shows just how malleable that story of an aging killer attempting to reform is.

Ten years ago, the first trailers were appearing for a hopeful big summer blockbuster that many thought was destined for disaster. The movie would be taking on a genre that had long since led to nothing but flops, starring some relative unknowns backed up by quirky character actor Johnny Depp, and would be based on source material that raised many an eyebrow. But the summer of 2003 saw "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl" become a monster hit, launching one of the biggest modern-day franchises, stretching to four movies to date, and turning Depp from beloved oddball to global megastar.

Just a quick glance at the names of the two leads of Showtime’s new show “Masters of Sex” is enough to get us a little bit excited. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan are those two names, and being that it’s generally a delight any time either of them show up on the big or small screen our interest was immediately piqued when we saw they were starring alongside each other. Well, now we’ve got our first look at the show thanks to a trailer that presents it alongside another one of their new dramas, “Ray Donovan” which boasts a similarly great lead in Liev Schreiber but tonally seems extremely different to "Masters of Sex."

The red band trailer usually delivers nudity, foul language and all kinds of other stuff they can't show general audiences without some concerned parent gasping at the horror of it all. This one for "This Is 40" has none of those which leaves us asking why it was designated with that tag. Was it Paul Rudd's anus? The use of the word 'dicks'? The suggestion that Megan Fox isn't wearing any undewear? We're sure the stuffed shirts at the MPAA have their reasons, but anyway you can check out the not-so-naughty work below.

So, did the trailer for "Oblivion" not fill your appetite for futursitic sci-fi in which Earth is no longer as it seems? Well, get comfortable because Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith have teamed up with M. Night Shyamalan for "After Earth" and after this first trailer....we're not quite sure what it's about....
