Amber Heard and movies based on cult novels don't seem to fit so well together. "The Informers," based on Bret Easton Ellis' book, was largely ignored, while "The Rum Diary" didn't manage to bring much life to Hunter S. Thompson's work. And now comes "Syrup," which brings Max Barry's novel to the big screen, and this trailer suggests that Heard might be going 0-3.

Well, this is a pretty easy way to do it. Want to sell your movie as life-affirming and soul stirring? Just slap some Sigur Rós and Coldplay on there and let it do the work. Of course, if you have a movie that already comes with some pretty breathtaking imagery, that certainly helps.

After an unofficial trailer dropped last week and was quickly scrubbed from the Internet, Radius and The Weinstein Company have finally unveiled the official trailer for "The Details." And while this spot contains familiar elements like dialogue and characters, it's still no less quirky (and compelling) that the decidedly odder version that preceded it.

With all the talk about what "Promised Land" is and isn't about, we'll leave it to co-star Titus Welliver to break it down. "It has great story because it’s really about the issue we face right now with this hydro-fracking. Within that framework is a story about people and how they navigate the idea of making a lot of money when things aren’t exactly how they seem on the surface," he told Hollywood News. "It’s about people going through changes and how they perceive things or what the truths the ideals are that they have, how they change as things unfold. That was an incredible experience." Yep, that's it in a nutshell, and once again the awards season race has shifted with the arrival of the trailer for the film.

So, hot mess or career comeback? Well, it's a Lifetime movie so, if it's watchable that will be more than enough, but given that Lindsay Lohan seems to be operating a bi-weekly arrest rate, she's hoping that this one turns out be a surprise success because there's only so many "Scary Movie" appearances you can do.

This weekend, the Clint Eastwood-starring baseball movie "Trouble with the Curve" opens and we'll just tell you right now: it's not very good. Somehow, it misses the the magic of the game that makes it the nation's greatest pasttime, and tosses in not one, but two third-act twists that are there as lazy devices to wring audience sympathy. But before 'Trouble' starts, it looks like WB is going to show off an early look at next year's baseball movie, and it might be a better investment of your movie ticket dollars.

Nudity, lions, an art heist, outrageous accents and Stanley Tucci -- "Gambit" appears to have it all (depending on what your definition of "all" is), and a new, full-length trailer for the Coens-penned movie has dropped. And if anything, it proves that the brothers' brand of eccentricity-laced humor hasn't been lost in translation.

An outsider with strange powers, a human who understands and forces beyond their control....no, we're not talking about "Twilight." Instead, it's "Beautiful Creatures," Warner Bros. stab at the YA pie that Summit and Lionsgate have conquered heartily with the vampire series and "The Hunger Games" respectively. Now it's time for the major studio play -- do they have what it takes?

We have to admit, the premise of "Sinister" kind of put us off from the start. The story centers on a novelist who moves into a home where a family was recently murdered and discovers home video footage that might reveal exactly what happened to them. Toss in director Scott Derrickson ("The Exorcism Of Emily Rose," "The Day The Earth Stood Still") and a not so inspiring cast led by Ethan Hawke and....yawn, right? Well, guess again.
