Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Apes will rule the Earth ... at least at the multiplex this summer when "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" arrives, picking up years after "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," with humanity now at the mercy of the super smart simians. A lot of work went into creating the realistic looking simians, that goes far beyond the tremendous amount of CGI.

Road To Paloma
Whenever an actor goes behind the camera, the results can be dicey. But at the same time—as we highlighted in our feature 10 Strong Directorial Debuts From Actors-Turned-Directors—sometimes that venture behind the camera can result in something better than expected. And while we had our doubts about Jason Momoa doing his thing as a director for "Road To Paloma," it seems to be delivering exactly what it set out.

Bound By Flesh
While we live in an era where stars can seem to emerge from anything from viral videos to Twitter accounts, this isn't necessarily a recent phenomenon. In the '20s and '30s, crowds flocked to sideshows to see human curiosities, and sometimes those performers became famous themselves. And in the forthcoming documentary "Bound By Flesh," director Leslie Zemeckis examines the sad story of one such duo.

What We Do In The Shadows
While his “Flight of the Conchords” partner Bret McKenzie has been winning an Oscar and showing up in a very small blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role in “The Hobbit” movies, Jemaine Clement hasn’t exactly been resting on his laurels either, playing the big bad in “Men in Black 3” and doing some voice-over work in the kid-targeting “Rio” movies. He’s also been hard at work at co-directing the vampire comedy “What We Do In The Shadows” with Taika Waititi, and now the first trailer has arrived to draw some first blood.

P'tit Quinquin
The common refrain heard over the past few years has been about how the world of television has offered a home to filmmakers who can't seem to get projects greenlit in the increasingly tentpole focused world of the major studios. But even we were surprised when the resolutely, hardcore arthouse filmmaker Bruno Dumont showed up on the Cannes Directors' Fortnight lineup with a police procedural/comedy mini-series, set to unspool in its entirety. And now the first trailer is here and it's definitely a side of Dumont we don't usually see.

Lullaby, Garett Hedlund
Yeah, we know, we forgot about this one too. Waaaaay back in 2012 — yep, two years ago — it was announced that Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Brown-Findlay were making a movie called "Lullaby." Cool story bro, and like everyone else, it was wiped from our memory. Well the thing was filmed and usually, if a movie starring this kind of ensemble takes forever to arrive, and once it does, its in the hands of a tiny indie distributor, the results probably aren't so hot. And now you can judge for yourself, as the first trailer is here.

The Simpsons Brick Like Me
"The Simpsons" is now running twenty-five seasons long, and to be honest, we don't really watch this thing anymore. In fact, not many people are, with last week's episode setting an all time's ratings low. But it's such a cash cow Fox isn't going to kill the show anytime soon, but they're hoping this latest gimmick will get folks to tune in.

The Salvation
The last time Mads Mikkelsen was at Cannes, he walked away with a Best Actor award for his turn in "The Hunt." Now two years later, he'll be back walking the red carpet on the Croisette, but in something a bit different. Instead of a Competition film, the actor will be hoping to thrill audiences in the Midnight Screening selection "The Salvation." And the first trailer is here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Not content with simply rebooting slasher franchises like “Friday The 13th,” “Nightmare On Elm Street” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes decided to tack their approach to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and the results we’ve seen thus far seem to be horrific indeed. A first trailer last month debuted our first look at the terrifying Turtles in action, and now another has followed with a few more insights into the direction of the film.

Elliott Smith
A sweet, tortured soul blessed with a beautiful voice, and gifted songwriting chops, Elliott Smith burned brightly in the time he was with us. His sudden death ten years ago sent shock waves through the music world, and even a decade on, it's hard to believe he's gone, with no more music to share with us. But there's plenty to celebrate with the life and tunes he left behind and director Nickolas Rossi's upcoming documentary, "Heaven Adores You," will endeavour to do just that.
