Maleficent
For the kids! If tonight's Grammy Awards have taught us anything, it's that we have no idea what counts as "popular music" these days. So if Disney is choosing fashion model/blog famous singer Lana Del Rey to help power their new trailer for "Maleficent," then it probably means their marketing department has determined the demographic this is aimed for will totally dig it.

The Lunchbox
One of the more interesting and minor controversies of the awards season this year was India's decision to submit the little seen or heard about "The Good Road," instead of "The Lunchbox," the feature debut by Ritesh Batra that spent a good chunk of 2013 on the festival circuit where it earned continual good notices. And not only was the film getting good reviews, it was widely perceived as being particularly accessible too, with the potential of reaching a wider audience than your usual arthouse fare. Awards consideration aside, the movie is still coming, and the first trailer and clip from "The Lunchbox" has arrived.

Starred Up
Led by what we called "a stunning, incendiary performance" by Jack O'Connell in a movie that's "authentic, but capable of lyricism," you'd be wise to put "Starred Up" on your radar for 2014 (yep, it's one of the 21 Best Films We've Seen already, that are coming this year). But if you need a bit more convincing, this excellent new trailer has dropped for the film which'll get your pulse racing.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Though the its cinematic universe in divided into three — “Spider-Man” is with Sony, the “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” characters with Fox, and the rest with the comics giant itself — Marvel is still far ahead of the competition with each of its futures more or less for the next several years. In fact, with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” the company hopes to slowly introduce more obscure characters from their catalogue to general audiences with the expense of a large blockbuster. In fact, yesterday came news that the middling ABC series will be adding two characters absent from the Marvel cinematic universe up until now.

Certainly, replicating the look of '70s New York City is easy enough — just make everything bigger. The hair, the jeans, the attitude...if you wear it all with confidence and a bit of flamboyance, you can pull it off. And while "Blood Ties" has the look of a Sidney Lumet or William Friedkin movie of the period, it doesn't quite capture the essence of those films. But there are plenty of reasons why should check out it.

The Bag Man
File this under: movies you forgot existed. As much as he's a bonafide legend, and will go down as one of the great actors of his time, Robert De Niro still will sign on to the most random, middling fare from time to time. Which brings us to "The Bag Man." Never heard of it? Well, maybe you'll recall when it was first announced a couple years ago under the title "Motel." Still doesn't ring any bells? Don't sweat it because the first trailer is here.

"I saw 'The Exorcist' by myself when I was way too young," former "Doctor Who" star Karen Gillan told Yahoo. But that hasn't kept the actress from the genre, and she takes the lead in the upcoming "Oculus," with horror flick making some buzz last year at TIFF, where it nabbed the runner up prize for the Midnight Madness People's Choice Award. And now you can get a sense of what captured the attention of viewers last fall.

The Babadook
There have been many films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival that have been buzzed about, many of which were anticipated beforehand. What’s most exciting about this time of year is when a film comes out of nowhere (or in this case, from Down Under) and takes everyone by surprise. That is the case with the Australian horror film “The Babadook” which premiered at Sundance, and immediately made a rumbling around Park City, catching the ears of our team on the ground. And hopefully this trailer for the movie will get you excited too.

Better Living Through Chemistry
While many studios like to use the Sundance Film Festival to boost their star driven indie pics, it's a bit curious that "Better Living Through Chemistry" didn't make an appearance. After all, the cast is red carpet ready with Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Ray Liotta and Jane Fonda among them, so what else could it be? Well, perhaps this trailer is a clue...

Sundance Cliche
If you've been within a hundred miles of our site lately, you might just have noticed that Sundance is on: the good, the bad and the indie have been living it up in Utah (as far as is possible, given, well, Utah), and occasionally seeing a movie or two as well.
