Last summer, you may remember hearing that Guillermo Arriaga, Bahman Ghobadi, Emir Kusturica and Hideo Nakata were teaming up for the religious-themed anthology film “Words With Gods.” Well, a year has nearly passed and the project is now in post-production, with the first trailer dropping today.

I Origins
The intersection of spirituality, faith and chance... these are tricky ingredients to work with when it comes to spinning a cinematic tale, with the possibility of tilting toward the New Age ever present. But Mike Cahill gets it right with "I Origins" and the first trailer is here.

How To Train Your Dragon 2
One of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, and set to feature new music from Sigur Ros frontman Jónsi, expectations are riding pretty high on "How To Train Your Dragon 2." The first film landed four years ago, and surprised many by taking in nearly $500 million worldwide. And before you could say franchise, a TV spinoff and sequel were in development. And today brings with it a new look at the animated film.

22 Jump Street
We started the day with "22 Jump Street," so we might as well end it there too. Earlier, we got the first clip and a bunch of new images for the movie, and now just as we're about to go to bed, Sony has dropped the final, three-minute red band trailer for the movie. And yes, it looks really good.

Wish I Was Here
"You gotta hear this one song, it'll change your life I swear," Natalie Portman says in "Garden State." With that, The Shins shot to massive fame off the back of "New Slang," while everyone swooned to Zach Braff's directorial debut, until they decided it was apparently one of the worst movies ever. (Guys, it's not that bad—there, we said it.) A decade later and Braff is back and causing more controversy with the Kickstarter-funded "Wish I Was Here," which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Credit to Braff, he's not shying away from what worked before.

American Blogger
Guys, we don't know if you've heard, but there is this new phenomenon sweeping the web called "blogging." We thought it might be a new fitness trend like hot yoga, or perhaps some sort of electric vehicle that doesn't require fossil fuel, but thankfully, filmmaker Christopher Wiegand has cleared all of this up. "I was really more interested to dig deeper into all this blogging/instagram/twittter world and one, help people understand how cool it is to have an area on the internet that is all yours," he writes on the film's website.

Borgman
Over the past year, one movie has been building a bit of buzz thanks a continual presence on the festival circuit, premiering at Cannes, playing TIFF and hitting Fantastic Fest among the more notable of its many stops. We're talking about Alex van Warmerdam's "Borgman," and if you like your cinema weird and eerie, this one has you covered.

Planes: Fire & Rescue
Oh sure, you might not have cared about Disney's "Planes," a transparent attempt to continue to spinoff the "Cars" franchise, one of the company's most successful licensed product brands. But lots of other people did, probably mostly parents with kids. Somewhere along the way, "Planes" quietly earned $219 million worldwide last year, and thus, a new movie series was born with a sequel already coming.

Two Men In Town
Forest Whitaker seems to be drifting back into the spotlight. Last year, he led the hit "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and appeared in support in "Out Of The Furnace," and now he has a bonafide arthouse world film with the Berlin International Film Festival-approved “Two Men In Town.” Helmed by “Outside The Law” director Rachid Bouchareb, the film’s French trailer has arrived online ahead of its release in that country and you won’t need to know French to watch it.

Neighbors
While Seth Rogen and Zac Efron are the two promoted stars of "Neighbors," and get the bulk of the screentime in this new, lengthy red band trailer for the comedy, by all accounts it's the perpetually underrated Rose Byrne who walks away with the biggest laughs. In our review of the movie out of SXSW, our own Drew Taylor noted, "she nearly steals the entire movie, and certainly gets the surprise comedy MVP award." And it's good thing the rest of the movie looks like a lot of fun too.
