"Girls" and "Enlightened" might be over for now, but we don't have too long to wait for another quality HBO sitcom to start up, as we're four weeks from the start of the second season of "Veep," the Emmy-award winning political comedy starring Julia-Louis-Dreyfus. Created by Armando Iannucci, the man behind "The Thick Of It," and "In The Loop," the first season might not have quite hit the peaks of brilliance of the earlier show and movie, but it's still one of the most consistent and enjoyable sitcoms on TV.

Aksel Hennie was the star of one of last year’s biggest foreign language hits, “Headhunters,” and he’s since cashed in by securing a supporting role in Brett Ratner’s “Hercules” alongside Dwayne Johnson. But Hennie’s next project is "Pioneer," another Norwegian effort from the same production company behind "Headhunters," an '80s-set conspiracy thriller set to the backdrop of the Norwegian Oil Boom.

Almost no subject is as polarizing as Roman Polanski’s sex abuse scandal, and that fact makes us cautious with editorializing. But if you need another reminder, check out this vintage interview with the director and Diane Sawyer from 1994 and you get a good sense of how provocative the case is. Anywho, the trailer has dropped for “Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out,” the documentary follow-up by director Marina Zenovich to her 2008 film “Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired,” and it’s no secret whose side she is on.

While it may seem like we've talked about Olivier Assayas' movie to death by this point -- after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year followed by our two interviews with the director over the next few months -- it's actually now coming to theaters stateside. And it looks like the perfect drama to shake up your spring.

Watch: New Trailer For 'Scary Movie 5' Is Exactly As Funny As You Think It'll Be

It has not been a great year for comedy thus. We won't even get into "A Haunted House" or "Movie 43," and while "Identity Thief" is a massive box office smash, it's also unbearably awful. As for this weekend's "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone"? It has flashes of humor but it's a missed opportunity over all, although we will say that Jay Mohr is surprisingly hilarious in it. All of which brings us to "Scary Movie 5," which continues the unfunny train of 2013.

While superheros will once again dominate the summer season, Disney is hoping that audiences will want to try something a little bit different. Granted, it's a still a movie with Johnny Depp wearing lots of feathers and headgear, but it's in a genre that has traditionally had a mixed track record: the western. However, hoping to tap nostalgia nuts and those looking for a lotta bang for their buck, "The Lone Ranger" is riding over the horizon.

Bet you forgot all about this one, but guess what, so did we. First announced way back in 2011, seemingly shot, completed and then left to collect dust, the thriller "Penthouse North" starring Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan now has an international trailer. And thank goodness they are both on to much, much better things.

Lo-fi, featuring stars that weren't household names and stamped with an R-rating, "Kick-Ass" gleefully twisted the superhero genre on its head to the tune of $96 million worldwide. Given all the factors above, that's quite a feat and, no doubt boosted by home video exposure, a sequel was greenlit. But can lightning strike twice? Will director Jeff Wadlow be an adequate stand-in for Matthew Vaughn? Well, see for yourself as the first trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" has arrived.
