Her, Spike Jonze, Joaquin Phoenix
Yeah, it's long-gone from theaters and already fading in the memory a bit, but it seems folks are still having fun tinkering and satirizing the trailer for Spike Jonze's "Her." Jonah Hill put his spin on it, the voice of Philip Seymour Hoffman stepped in for Samantha, so too did HAL 9000, and there was the parody sequel "Him." And now baseball fans get their unique version.

A lot of movies play the Sundance Film Festival so we're not able to see everything, and "The Signal" was one of those things we missed this year. But perhaps we should have tried harder to make this one. The first trailer for the mysterious sci-fi thriller is here, and the combination of dazzling visuals and an enigmatic hook has grabbed our attention.

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case
Artist, provocateur and hero to many, Ai Weiwei's life and work has long been a thorn in the side of the Chinese government, even as his international profile and influence continues to grow. Even when attempts are made to silence Ai Weiwei, it can't help but shine even more light on the man and his career.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
While you might still be miffed that "The Amazing Spider-Man" told the origin story you already knew, director Marc Webb admits to Rolling Stone he actually turned down a script for the first movie that ditched it altogether. "It was different. It still had the Lizard in it, but it was a script that jumped ahead in time and relied on knowledge of the comic books that I don't think everyone had," he explained to the magazine. "Tonally, it was a little more tongue-in-cheek and glib, and I didn't feel the emotional connection. I just didn't know how else to develop that bond than with an origin story. I feel like it pays off in this movie, because now Andrew Garfield embodies Peter Parker."

The Giver
Here we go again... While Jeff Bridges may have been on the ball with "The Giver," developing the adaptation of Lois Lowry’s award-winning book for well over a decade, the film is entering an arena littered with carcasses of similar, but failed efforts ("The Host," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" etc). So can this one rise above the pack?

Bad Johnson
“I wish my d*ck would just leave me alone.” No, really, that’s the first key line of dialogue in Cam Gigandet’s “Bad Johnson.” Purporting to be a comedy (!?), the movie is about a charismatic womanizer who receives his comeuppance after his penis mysteriously leaves his body and takes human form. No, really. And then his penis, well, turns into a total dick.

Nymphomaniac
It's probably safe to say that making Lars von Trier's two-part sex epic "Nymphomaniac" was far from the usual film experience. But even for Charlotte Gainsbourg, making her third movie with the director following "Antichrist" and "Melancholia," the production offered up some interesting decisions for the actress. Namely, she got to pick her own sex stunt double.

Maleficent
Yeah, we know. It feels like there's been about fifteen trailers for "Maleficent" already, and Disney has dropped yet another, but instead of essentially playing like an extended TV spot, this is a legit full length spot with lots of new footage, magical stuff and bellowing. So let's take a gander, shall we?

Godzilla
This is the kind of tentpole we can get behind. In a couple months, "Godzilla" will be stomping back onto screens around the world, but the movie brings one major ingredient with it that's missing from the Marvel movies, and other remakes, sequels and spinoffs: freshness. Yes, it's a new take on the famous monster that scared audiences decades ago, but yet in the hands of director Gareth Edwards, it feels revitalized, new and authentic. That being said, he did reveal an interesting influence when approaching the movie.

Peanuts
"It's long overdue," Charles Schulz's son Craig Schulz told USA Today about the "Peanuts" movie. "The fans have been asking for a long time, but we held off until the time was right." We're not sure anybody was asking for a 3D, slickly animated take on Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang. But it's coming, and the first trailer for the effort has dropped today.
