Obvious Child
While it didn’t take any of the Sundance Film Festival awards earlier this year, one of the bigger breakout films from the Utah-set festival was “Obvious Child.” Starring comedienne and former 'SNL' cast member Jenny Slate, the film centers on an unapologetically crude aspiring comedian whose world is turned upside down by a devastating break-up, getting fired from her job and an unplanned pregnancy.

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
"Gone Girl" certainly has a lot of variables at play. On the one hand, it co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry, not the names you might immediately associate with a David Fincher film. On the other hand, it's based on a bestseller by Gillian Flynn (who wrote a new ending for the film), it brings Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross back to score, and the material is right in Fincher's thriller wheelhouse. The result? Well, judge for yourself, as the first trailer is here.

God’s Pocket,
Philip Seymour Hoffman may no longer be with us, but thankfully he's left a couple completed films to help soften the blow of his tragic loss. Later this year we'll see him in Anton Corbijn's thriller "A Most Wanted Man," but coming first this spring, Hoffman will feature opposite John Turturro in "Mad Men" star John Slattery's drama, "God's Pocket."

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
What we know so far about David Fincher's "Gone Girl": it's got an explicit sex scene with Neil Patrick Harris, author Gillian Flynn helped come up with a different ending than the one in her best-selling book, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are back in the Fincher fold, scoring their third straight film for the director. Okay, but how has it turned out? You'll get your first taste on Monday.
