Even today's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" trailer was preceded by a ten-second snippet and a one-minute "Entertainment Tonight" preview. And so, with the "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" trailer days away, the tradition continues with six seconds of sizzle stuff to keep fans going. And yes, we're all part of the problem.

There are a lot of interesting factors in the mix for Marvel's next sequel, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." With the shield-bearing hero being brought into sync with the post-"The Avengers" timeline, the movie is tossing together first-time tentpole directors Anthony and Joe Russo, veteran Robert Redford in a key role and Anthony Mackie flying in to help as Falcon. It's an interesting array of ingredients, but can it recreate the breezy, throwback vibe of "Captain America: The First Avenger"? Or will it be something different?

For any filmmaker, particularly if you're working on an independent movie, accolades from critics and audiences are cherished and valued, providing validation for the long hours put in to realize your vision. But it must feel extra special when a director the caliber Paul Thomas Anderson takes the time to single out your effort for praise. "I absolutely love it. You've never seen anything like it. It's a smile from beginning to end," Anderson said about Laura Colella's "Breakfast With Curtis" after discovering it last year at the L.A. Film Festival. And now, we get a chance to see what captured his attention.

Return of the jedi
While Lucasfilm, J.J. Abrams and “Star Wars” fans alike try to ride the line of commendable and just plain mediocre in relation to pinning a title on “Star Wars: Episode 7," the marketing team behind George Lucas' brainchild has succeeded in raising interest and a bit of nostalgia for the original trilogy. Two weeks ago, they released the original 1976 teaser trailer for “Star Wars” followed the next week by the one for “The Empire Strikes Back," and now in keeping with ritual and perhaps a countdown, the pre-'Return' trailer for Richard Marquand's 1983 installment has hit the web.

Oscar contender? Yes—at least Fox hopes so. While you might not have been hearing much about "The Book Thief," that's probably about to change. As Deadline points out, it's not every day that a studio pays for two full, nearly blank pages in The New York Times, but they did just that, with little more than the URL wordsarelife.com appearing, directing the curious to the official website of the movie. With the wheels on the awards season campaign starting to turn, a new U.K. trailer has arrived.

You probably forgot, but way back in the ancient year of 2012, it was announced that Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia were teaming for a campus romance flick entitled "Admissions." Yes, it sounds very similar in name to "Admission" starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd which landed earlier this year, but now it has a new title and a fresh trailer, so you can see what it's all about.

Almost Human Karl Urban
Named as one of our 10 Most Promising Network Shows For Fall 2013, we have to admit a certain curiosity about the J.J. Abrams-produced "Almost Human" based on the premise alone. That, and it has the potential to give us a weekly serving of Karl Urban in full on snark mode, which we wouldn't complain about either.

When Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s “Here Comes the Devil” made its debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest, it was essentially the toast of the town. The Mexican horror film has been described as “weird,” “insane” and “odd,” with intense sexual situations and some very gory moments. In other words, it’s the perfect film for any horror fan to feast upon. And now, after more than a year since its festival debut, it’s finally making its way to theaters and VOD.
