The Red Road
While HBO and AMC tend to get all the Golden Age Of TV glory, it might be time to start including Sundance Channel in the mix. Last year's "Top Of The Lake" was one of the best things we saw on either the big or small screen, and if the first teaser for "The Red Road" is anything to go by, it's going to be another fascinating, layered drama. And hell, we'll be watching simply because James Gray directed the first episode of the six episode long season.

I Put A Hit On You
The names might not be as big, and the swag bags not nearly as bursting, but as the more rebellious cousin to the bigger Sundance Film Festival, the lineup at the Slamdance Film Festival brings with it films and filmmakers creating inventive movies with fewer resources. And that means the films tend to be infused with a more playful spirit, and that feeling is certainly evident in this exclusive trailer for "I Put A Hit On You."

"Democracy is overrated," declares Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), and certainly in "House Of Cards," the machinations of the White House have little to do with the power of the ballot. And if you thought the stakes were high and the drama was intense in the first season, apparently, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Kite
There are a lot of movies coming in 2014, but one you might have unfortunately forgotten about is "Kite." Why should you keep this one on your radar? Well, it's an adaptation of an anime that is renowned for it's rather graphic sexuality, and not only does Samuel L. Jackson star in the movie, he's a big fan of the material as well, which hopefully means this version will retain some of the spirit of the source material.

Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas
Between winning best actor at Cannes in 2012 for "The Hunt" and becoming America's favorite psychiatrist/cannibal in "Hannibal," Mads Mikkelsen is now at the point where whatever he does, it will likely be interesting and potentially awesome. And certainly, our hopes were raised for "Michael Kohlhaas" when we saw it last spring on the Croisette. But even the greats sometimes stumble.

Veronica Mars movie
While there have been plenty of shows rejiggered for the big screen, few have had the scrutiny that will come with "Veronica Mars." It'll have to satisfy fans who petitioned for the movie and then shelled out their own cash to the Kickstarter campaign make it happen. All the while, suits in Hollywood will be watching the returns to see if this business model is viable. But first and foremost it'll have to be simply a good movie, and the first trailer is here to make the case.

We know we've been talking about this one for a while, but just like that, "True Detective" will start airing in just over a week and a brand new trailer featuring lots of new footage is here to get you excited all over again.

Given it's six months later, we're not sure if this is the same sizzle reel that debuted in the summer, but an international trailer for Anton Corbijn's "A Most Wanted Man" is back online. The film is set to debut at Sundance 2014 later this month, and while it wasn't in part one of our 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2014, check back on Monday and we bet you'll see it there (and for those keeping score it was there in 2013 too).
