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.

Over the past month or so, we've seen some intriguing trailers land online for the Japanese language remake of "Unforgiven" and Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises," but without the benefit of English subtitles. But with both movies now headed to TIFF, they have been refreshed with English subtitles to give you a better sense of how both of them play out.

Earlier this year, we got "Gangster Squad," a dramatization of the battle between Los Angeles cops and ruthless gangster Mickey Cohen that made Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy" looks understated and subtle by comparison. In short, it was a disaster, but can the small screen be the saving grace of that juicy story? We'll soon see as in a few months Frank Darabont will drop his take on the tale, and we have to say, as far as first impressions go...this has caught our attention...

Full disclosure: Christopher Bell is a contributor to The Playlist, so yes, we're promoting the work of someone on the site. But you know what? We're more than happy to, especially when it looks this compelling. Those of us around The Playlist water cooler kinda of knew Chris was working on something — and he has numerous shorts under his belt already — but we had no idea that "The Winds That Scatter" would look anything like this.

Woody Allen doesn't act often these days, and it's even rarer that he'll step in front of the camera for someone else's film. But when he does, he rarely loses a step, and everything we've come to know about the writer/director/actor's screen presence is here fully formed in "Fading Gigolo," the latest directorial effort from John Turturro.

Festival scheduling can be difficult, with overlaps and conflicts ruining even the noblest of intentions. And thus, we were slightly bummed to miss Stephen Frears' "Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight" at the Cannes Film Festival this May. At least at first. Word on the picture was muted at best, and it's safe to say it barely made a ripple on the Croisette. But perhaps this story of an American icon will play better at home than abroad? Well, in just a couple months, you'll be able to judge for yourself.

Watch: Trailer For Sundance Award Drama 'Mother Of George' Featuring 'The Walking Dead' Star Danai Gurira

At this year's Sundance Film Festival, Andrew Dosunmu's "Mother of George" received strong buzz and lots of notice, largely thanks to Danai Gurira's standout performance (which is why we named her one of our 15 Breakout Artists To Watch). Gurira is probably best known as Michonne on AMC's "The Walking Dead" and/or for her stellar film debut in "The Visitor." But reteaming with Dosunmnu—their first film together was "Restless City," which screened at Sundance two years ago—seems to have paid off with a role in a movie that will certainly get her landing on more radars.

We Have Been Boarded By Armed Pirates: Watch The New Trailer For 'Captain Phillips' With Tom Hanks

Captain Phillips, Tom Hanks
This summer, one of the underrated highlights at the arthouse was Tobias Lindholm's "A Hijacking." It told the fictional tale of a ship taken over by Somali pirates, and the psychological toll it takes on both the hostages and company negotiating for the ship and the lives of the men on board. One of the most striking aspects of the film was that it kept the violence out of frame — most notably, the actual hijacking itself — humanizing both perpetrators and the victims all in one go. Granted, with Paul Greengrass at the helm of "Captain Phillips," one wouldn't expect he'd have the same approach but for those worried it would a one-sided tale, this new trailer reveals that's not the case.

50,000 Bands And 1 Disgusting Bathroom: Get In The Gutter With Trailer For 'CBGB'

It's a bit surprising that it has taken this long for a movie to come around that takes a stab at capturing the punk spirit and music history made down at New York City's famed club CBGB in the '70s. But it speaks to just how powerful and vital of a time it was that it's still ripe for a big screen telling.
