JJ Abrams
For the legions who devour every Twitter fart, set photo, catering menu and shoot location news, here's a reminder that sometimes, it's just nice for something to drop out of the blue to tease audiences. The master of secrecy, J.J. Abrams, has just dropped a mystery teaser trailer to the folks over at EW, and what's it for? Well, it's a safe guess it's not "Star Wars: Episode 7."

At some point during last week’s staggeringly multifaceted D23 Expo in Anaheim, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs introduced a trailer for “The Imagineering Story,” a new feature-length documentary by Academy Award-nominated director Leslie Iwerks, who previously helmed “The Pixar Story” and “Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible.” While the movie won’t be released until 2016, the footage from D23 has emerged online. And even though we got to spend some time in the California parks during D23, the trailer makes us want to go back. Like right now.

While one of the year's most talked films won't be under consideration for any Oscars due to the Academy's rather arbitrary rules, that doesn't take anything away from Abdellatif Kechiche's epic love story "Blue Is The Warmest Color" (aka "La Vie Adele - Chapters 1 & 2"). With an upcoming North American debut primed for the Toronto International Film Festival to be followed by a fall release, this one will be seen by many as a contender for year-end Best Of lists and the first international trailer has just arrived for the movie.

McCanick
The death of “Glee” star Cory Monteith of an apparent drug overdose after a stint in rehab is still rippling throughout Hollywood. Since then, questions have been raised about the status of his few remaining projects he completed before his untimely death. One of his final projects, entitled “McCanick,” might hit a bit too close to home; it follows a young man (Monteith), a former drug addict and murderer released from prison, and the one cop (David Morse) determined to get rid of him before a dark secret can be revealed.

“The big thing for us is about awareness of what an A.C.O.D. is,” director Stu Zicherman recently told EW. “There’s a lot of debate about [keeping] the title.” Well, keep they did and now comes the part of the campaign to let you know what it's all about. And that's just what the first trailer for "A.C.O.D." does, bringing together a whole bunch solid comedic talents for a tale about the effects splitting up....on everyone else...

It was over a decade ago, so it might be easy to forget just how drastic the impact the Beltway Snipers had not just on the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area, but the nation as a whole. For nearly a month, it dominated the news while folks along Interstate 95 feared for their lives, thinking they might be the next person to be randomly picked off. And while there have been a couple of movies about those events, none seem to have the electricity of "Blue Caprice."

While it seemed for a brief moment that the career of Stephen Dorff might be in for a mid-period ascension thanks to his turn in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," that didn't quite happen. As we documented in our feature 10 Actors Hollywood Tried And Failed To Make Happen, Dorff has pretty much gone back to doing a mix of movies you never heard, the occasional blockbuster and...well, "Zaytoun." And after making the requisite festival stops last year, it's coming to theaters and a new trailer has arrived.

Better known to stateside genre fans as the director behind "Cold Fish" and the epic and weird "Love Exposure," for his latest effort, Sion Sono is ripping directly from the headlines and seemingly playing it totally straight. Inspired by the 2011 earthquake that rocked Japan and unleashed a nuclear disaster that still has repercussions today, Sono has put together "The Land of Hope," and as you might expect from this new U.K. trailer for the film, it's pretty intense stuff.

We were going to go with the headline "Watch: First Teaser Trailer For 'Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters' Sucks...Blood" but that just seemed too obvious. Either way, it seems we're getting yet another tale of teens and vampires and powers all in the name of hopefully, maybe launching another franchise to lure those all-important tween dollars. But as we've seen from the roadside collateral of fare like "Beautiful Creatures" and "The Host," just being based on a best-selling book isn't always enough.

Love, sex, relationships...porn? Yep, that XXX material once relegated to magazines stuffed under mattresses and shoved into rarely used dresser drawers is now nearly mainstream. Everyone looks at it, but what if looking at that material was part of your daily life to the point where it affected how you relate to the opposite sex? That's the jumping off point for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon," and a new trailer has arrived to give you a sample of what he's put together.
