It’s hard to instill a great deal of faith in director Tim Burton after a string of films that has included the unneeded revisionist fairy tale “Alice In Wonderland,” along with the recent disappointment that was his update of the television series “Dark Shadows.” While 'Shadows' started promising enough – almost returning the helmer to his glory days of atmospheric joy -- it fell to pieces in the second and third act. Well, some of us are still remaining optimistic about his next directorial effort, a stop-motion feature version adaptation of his own 1984 short film, “Frankenweenie.”

Comic-Con kicked off in full force today, and you don't have to be in San Diego to get the goodies. Not long after they showed off a sizzle reel to the crowd in Hall H, Disney went ahead and dumped the first trailer for "Oz The Great And Powerful" online, and yeah, it's actually pretty impressive.

Do studios need Comic-Con? The answer is a mix of both yes, no and maybe, but clearly Universal Pictures is less thrilled with the convention this year, perhaps due to the lukewarm reception to "Cowboys & Aliens" last year (even the geek constituents reviewed it poorly during the festival) and "Scott Pilgrim. vs. the World," which went over like gangbusters in 2010, but then was met with a lot of indifference to non-geeks. Whatever the case may be, Universal is by and large sitting out Comic-Con this year and their biggest tentpole of the summer, "The Bourne Legacy," won't be showing itself off at the nerd jubilee.

David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" appears to be a curious film. It's certainly not a summer tentpole, but the picture is nonetheless being released in early August, the week after "The Bourne Legacy" hits theaters. Counter-programming, or does everyone just have faith in the drawing power of its lead, Robert Pattinson?

Which do you want first, the good news or the bad news? Let's start with the bad first. The new international trailer for Warner Bros.' "Gangster Squad" has arrived and it is an entire minute shorter than the two and a half minute original trailer and offers almost zero new footage, but hey, it's "new." The good news however, is that Empire Magazine has some fresh photos from the film which you can see below.

A little bit meta, melancholy and yes, funny, "Sleepwalk With Me" has been building a quiet storm of buzz ever since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and earned more praise in Texas at SXSW. And arriving at the end of the summer, it will serve as a nice way to wash out the glut of tentpole fare clogging your brain.

Watch: A Bearded David Duchovny Plays Shaman In Trailer for Christopher Neil's Coming of Age Comedy 'Goats'

Creating a unique coming-of-age narrative on film remains a thoroughly difficult affair, as the requisite life-changing events in a young person's life remain overly familiar for anyone watching them. So if breaking the mold means having David Duchovny portraying a scruffy gardener/shaman named Goat Man, then by all means, go for it. At least, that's the thought from director Christopher Neil it seems, and the trailer for his feature debut, “Goats” has hit the web to show exactly what he means.

While the movies have generally favored older men chasing younger women, often to comedic effect, the reverse rarely gets explored. And when it does, it's certainly not with the emotional weight and insight of Todd Louiso's "Hello, I Must Be Going."

Watch: Trailer For Ursula Meier's Bleak Coming Of Age Tale 'Sister' Starring Léa Seydoux

For a while now, up and coming French actress Léa Seydoux has been threatening to make her mark internationally, even taking on small parts in Hollywood films such as "Robin Hood," "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" and "Midnight In Paris." While those roles haven't exactly garnered the attention she might have hoped for, her big break might actually come in the form of a project closer to home with Ursula Meier's "L'enfant d'en haut" ("Sister"), which is already developing strong buzz on the festival circuit.

Watch: Trailer & Posters For Brit Crime Flick 'Comes A Bright Day' Starring Imogen Poots & 'Submarine' Star Craig Roberts

British crime thrillers...every so often a classic rolls around, but you’ve got to wade through a whole heap of sub-par dreck before you find one. The first trailer has hit for Simon Aboud’s (romantically tinged) crime thriller “Comes A Bright Day,” and while nothing on show immediately suggests that it’s going to stray into the classic territory, it certainly looks a cut above the usual cockney geezers, gangsters and guns nonsense. And indeed, our reviewer in Berlin enjoyed it, with reservations, as you can read here. Led by 21 year-old “Submarine” star Craig Roberts – although we maintain he doesn’t look a day older than 16 – the cast also includes Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”), Kevin McKidd (“Trainspotting”) and Timothy Spall.
