Earlier today there was the trailer for "The Purge," a movie that we didn't know was happening because it was so far off our radar. And then there's "The English Teacher," a movie this writer initially mistook for "Writers" aka "Stuck In Love," due to the (omnipresence?) of Greg Kinnear and Lily Collins. But just like that movie, it's another indie dramedy where good looking people can't seem to sort out their love life. And frankly, we expect much better from you, Julianne Moore.

When we last saw Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), they had survived the perilous "The Hunger Games" and now they're on a victory lap tour or some such thing. Surely things aren't gonna stay that celebratory and happy in the "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" sequel for long. In fact, in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' YA novels, Katniss and Peta are dethroned from their respective victory riches and put back into the arena for the most climatic and menacing of the Hunger Games, known as the "Quarter Quell" (whatever) that means. Directed by Francis Lawrence (using IMAX cameras in some segments), a new teasing teaser trailer (which, let's face it, shows next to nothing) has arrived.

Wait, what is this movie? We have to admit either this flew entirely under our radar, we forgot about it or just plain didn't care. And maybe that's how Universal felt as well considering "The Purge" comes out next month and they're only starting to market the thing now, but, since it's coming from Team Blumhouse, the budget was probably about a million bucks and they'll make money on this if just five people show up. Considering it's a violent thriller with a "clever" premise from guys behind "Paranormal Activity" and "Sinister," people will probably line up in droves.

So, this summer marks a not so momentous occasion: "Grown Ups 2" is the first Adam Sandler sequel. And in making the followup to the smash hit "Grown Ups" -- a movie we still have a tough time believing anyone actually liked, even though lots of people went to see it for some reason -- Sandler rounded up some extra help to join his regular crew. And we never though we would type this but it's come to the point where Taylor Lautner is now funnier than Adam Sandler. Really.

Yes, while they do have some original stuff on the way -- "The Good Dinosaur," "The Inside Out" and The Untitled Movie about The Día de los Muertos" (read up on'em here), today reminds us that sometimes it's all C.R.E.A.M. at Pixar. Earlier today we got the release date locked down for "Finding Dory" aka "Finding Nemo 2" and now, a movie that was originally going to be fill bargin bins on DVD, is now trying to prove it's multiplex material.

The last time I wrote about "The Conjuring," some commenters gave me flack for suggesting the first teaser trailer relied to heavily on loud noises and jump scares. Well, what will they have to say about this?

Though the development process wound up stretching across a couple of years, with a few actors coming and going along the way, it's hard to argue with the impressive lineup David M. Rosenthal ("Janie Jones") assembled for "A Single Shot": Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs, William H. Macy, Melissa Leo, Kelly Reilly ("Flight," "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows") and Ophelia Lovibond ("No Strings Attached," "London Boulevard"). Not too shabby at all. And while it was one of our most anticipated movies of the Berin International Film Festival, the end result didn't exactly win us over, but you'll soon be able to judge for yourself.

Watch: New Trailer For 'Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones' Will Try To Succeed Where 'The Host' & 'Beautiful Creatures' Failed

So, YA franchises: lucrative new trend or risky fad? Those on the side of "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" will tout the devoted following both have developed, while one only has to look at the wreckage left behind "Beautiful Creatures" and last weekend's "The Host" to see that nothing is a guarantee. So hoping to come out a little bit better is "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones," which of course is based on a best-selling series of books. But will the fans show up? More importantly, will everyone else?

So April Fools' Day is (thankfully) nearing an end and it looks like Bryan Singer and the folks behind "This Is The End" win the day. The former fooled Variety with a joke tweet about Lady Gaga playing Dazzler in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," while the latter dropped a joke teaser for "Pineapple Express 2" masquerading as a quick teaser for the apocalypse comedy. Well, they've decided to finish the day with a brand new red band trailer, and yeah, this looks like it'll be something of a cameo filled blast.

Today is April Fool's Day, a holiday marked by lots of unfunny and terrible jokes floating around the internet trying to gotcha people. This isn't one of them. Instead, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and their pals have used April 1st to drop the trailer for the highly anticipated "Pineapple Express" sequel... okay, not really...
