Aaron Paul & Samantha Morton in 'Decoding Annie Parker' First Trailer

Decoding Annie Parker

Following the end of "Breaking Bad," actor Aaron Paul isn't faring too well on the big screen since Need for Speed was an absolute mess of nonsense and poor action. But maybe a lower profile drama will show his talents better in Decoding Annie Parker. The film follows two women, Samantha Morton and Helen Hunt, whose lives intersect as one deals with loss and heartbreak and the other has a breakthrough in the area of treating breast cancer. Morton adds some darker humor into the mix, and this look pretty charming and even amusing despite the depressing true story material. And there's Aaron Paul looking like a real 70s hippie (along with some great wardrobe for the whole cast) Might be worth checking out. Watch below!

'X-Men' Producer Wants to Try Spin-Offs Again, Maybe with Mystique

Mystique

If there's one thing pretty much every X-Men fan can agree on it's that the origin spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine was absolutely terrible. It turned Logan (Hugh Jackman) into a walking punchline, had poorly completed special effects, and completely ruined the character of Deadpool. But that doesn't mean longtime franchise producer Lauren Schuler Donner wants to give up on the prospect of spinning off characters into their own films again, especially with how successful Marvel has been with their cinematic universe. And one of those characters might be Jennifer Lawrence as shapeshifting mutant Mystique. Read on!

Watch: Final '22 Jump Street' Red Band Trailer is Your Best Nightmare

22 Jump Street Red Band

"It's the same case, do the same thing!" If you still need convincing that 22 Jump Street is worth seeing, Sony/Columbia has released a fourth trailer - another red band trailer that is a 2-and-1/2-minute push for this insane summer action comedy sequel, starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum (also in Jupiter Ascending). While we've seen plenty in the first three trailers already, the footage in this one includes lots of the story as well, hinting at their comeback, the plot involving college and spring breaker. So, it's a Spring Breakers riff, plus 21 Jump Street comedy all in one? I hope it's as funny as these trailers promise. Enjoy.

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter Gets a Father in 'Alice in Wonderland 2'

Mark Rylance

Though we don't know much about the Alice in Wonderland sequel developing at Disney, other than it will be called Through the Looking Glass and feature the return of Mia Wasikowska in the title role along with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, we might have a hint of what's to come with the latest casting reveal. Variety has word that stage actor Mark Rylance is currently in talks to play the father of Depp's looney, top hatted character. Of course, without any plot details, we're unsure just how integral the actor will be in the progression of the sequel's story. More below!

See Jon Stewart's Response to Fox News Coverage of 'Noah' Criticism

Jon Stewart - Noah

Anytime we get to feature a segment from The Daily Show on the site, I'm always very happy to stop and write about it. On the April 8th episode of the show, Stewart did a segment responding to recent Fox News coverage on how "awful" Darren Aronofsky's Noah movie is because it's unfaithful. Now, everyone has their own opinion (Sound Off), however Fox News has no idea what they are talking about, clearly being caught without having even seen the film. Jon Stewart responds ever-so-brilliantly and tears them down in return in the segment. Our friend/colleague Kevin McCarthy also appears briefly, out of context, like all the clips.

Watch: First Trailer for 'Fed Up' Documentary, the Next 'Super Size Me'

Fed Up Documentary Trailer

"I can't believe we let them get away with that!" Radius-TWC has debuted the first trailer for Stephanie Soechtig's documentary Fed Up, produced by and featuring Katie Couric, who takes an eye-opening look at modern society's abundant use of sugar in connection with obesity. I hate to use a headline that so blatantly compares this to another food doc that had an impact, Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me which premiered at Sundance 2004. But if that will get people to see this doc and actually start eating better, then screw it. I saw the premiere of this at Sundance 2014 and I think it's a very important doc for our country to get caught up in, even if it is a bit "we already know that", it can still make a big difference. Take a look at the doc below.

Salma Hayek Joining Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's 'Sausage Party'

Salma Hayek

With a voice cast that only includes one actress amongst a crew of actors, the animated R-rated comedy Sausage Party was beginning to live up to its name. Kristen Wiig is the only female in a cast that also includes Seth Rogen (who co-wrote the film with This is The End co-director Evan Goldberg), James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Edward Norton and David Krumholtz. But now Deadline reports Salma Hayek is on board too. The film follows a sausage and his friends, fallen out of a shopping car, who must journey through the supermarket in order get back to their proper aisle before the big sale on the Fourth of July.

Bryan Singer & Old Friends in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Featuette

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following six short featurettes that had director Bryan Singer touring some of the sets of X-Men: Days of Future Past, another look behind the scenes at the film has arrived with some new footage from the sequel itself. There's some cool new shots of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), both showing some cool action and plenty of tension between the two, plus more of James McAvoy as Charles Xavier. Plus there's some great quotes from Singer talking about getting the X-Men: First Class cast together with the original X-Men cast for a reunion of old and new mutants. Watch below!

Firth & Kidman Reunite Yet Again in 'Genius' with Michael Fassbender

Colin Firth & Nicole Kidman

After starring in both The Railway Man (hitting limited theaters this weekend) and Paddington (arriving this holiday season), Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman are getting together on the big screen yet again. NY Daily News has learned that Kidman will join Firth in Genius, a film about literary editor Max Perkins (who worked with the likes of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe). The film follows the relationship between Perkins (Firth) and Wolfe, played by Michael Fassbender. But it's not clear what role Kidman will have in the drama from Hugo writer John Logan, adapted from Perkins' biography.

Zach Braff's Sophomore Directing Effort 'Wish I Was Here' First Trailer

Wish I Was Here

Following a premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Wish I Was Here, the sophomore directorial effort of Garden State helmer and "Scrubs" star Zach Braff is coming this summer, and the first trailer has arrived. Much like the first trailer for Braff's aforementioned directorial debut, this one let's the music and cinematography shine, opting to leave out dialogue almost completely. It's kind of a bummer that a couple amusing cameos are included in this trailer, but they'll also convince fans of Braff's previous work to be even more excited. This writer wasn't a big fan of the film earlier this year, but it's worth seeing yourself. Watch!
