If Pedro Almodovar needed to do something lighter after "The Skin I Live In," and perhaps a movie not as layered as "Broken Embraces," we understand. And indeed, he's gone and knocked out a movie closer in spirit to his more anarchic early work ("Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown" is said to be a comparison point), than his later projects. "I'm So Excited" is all big colors and bold music and a new trailer has arrived to serve up another little teaser.

Chiwetel Ejiofor has been turning in great performances since Steven Spielberg spotted him and cast him in “Amistad” back in 1996, but it wasn’t until almost a decade later he started to make himself known to wider audiences in the likes of “Children of Men,” “Inside Man,” and, of course, “Serenity.” We’re particularly looking forward to a couple of his upcoming movies, “Half of a Yellow Sun” and Steve McQueen’s “Twelve Years a Slave,” but he’s also got an interesting looking project coming soon to the small screen.

It has been quite a few years since the last Stephen Chow film hit the United States (that would be the charming kids flick "CJ7"), and for those who have been missing his wackiness, here’s a little treat for you. A new English-subtitled trailer for Chow’s upcoming movie “Journey to the West” (or “Odyssey”) has recently debuted, and if you were wondering how Chow could top himself after his previous films “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle,” you might want to brace yourself for this.

When Matteo Garrone burst onto the international scene with the 2008 critically-acclaimed crime drama “Gomorrah,” few would have guessed that his follow-up would revolve around the reality TV show “Big Brother,” but that’s exactly what the Italian director did with “Reality.” And after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival last spring, Oscilloscope Laboratories has released a brand new trailer for the film as it gears up to finally hit theaters.

While he was responsible for one of the best films of the '00s with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," it's been a while since we really fell for something by Michel Gondry. Follow-up "The Science Of Sleep" had its charms, as did documentary "The Thorn In The Heart," but his major films like "Be Kind Rewind," "The Green Hornet" and "The We & the I" have swung between being cripplingly uneven and borderline unwatchable.

As long as they keep squeezing some extra cash out, it seems that studios are content to keep releasing 3D conversions of their older films. While “Jurassic Park 3D” won’t hit theaters until later this spring, you’ll be able to get your nostalgia fix in 3D next a lot sooner. The late Tony Scott’s seminal film “Top Gun” is set to get a limited IMAX 3D release next month and a new trailer has been released to get you pumped to re-enter the danger zone.

Watch: New, Foulmouthed International Trailer For 'The Heat' With Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."
