In addition to the stress of mysteriously losing their children, the locals begin to turn on the couple when they need help the most.

First Trailer for Nuri Bilge Ceylan's New Cannes Entry 'Winter Sleep'

Winter Sleep Trailer

The 67th Cannes Film Festival begins in just over a week, and cinephiles are gearing up for the discoveries ahead. One of them that has shot to the top of the radar is the follow-up film from Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan, who left an impression at Cannes in 2011 with Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, winning the Grand Jury Prize. His newest is titled Winter Sleep and it's been shrouded in mystery and secrecry every since filming last year. Our friends at The Film Stage have found the first trailer and now we get to see how stunning and riveting this looks. There's a reason this film is IONCinema's #1 most anticipated of 2014 and that's because it looks magnificent. While it doesn't have English subtitles, the footage is still worth seeing.

A Cappella Bad Boy Adam DeVine is Returning for 'Pitch Perfect 2'

Adam DeVine

The Barden Bellas had quite an arch nemesis in the form of Adam DeVine leading the Treblemakers before he abandoned his a capella team to go sing back-up on John Mayer's last album. But it sounds like maybe things didn't go so well for DeVine's character Bumper Allen as Deadline reports he will return in Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel already slated for release on May 15th, 2015. DeVine joins Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Show as returning cast members from the surprise musically infused comedy hit. But we're still wondering just what kind of story we're going to get from the sequel without treading water.

'Maleficent' Gets an IMAX Poster and Five Weak Character Posters

Maleficent

There may not be a Pixar movie coming this summer, but Disney is still hoping to hit strong with their own live-action fairytale this summer to accompany this year's comic book box office giants. Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie as the title villain best known from the classic Sleeping Beauty. But this new live-action revisionist take on the sorceress' tale looks at things from her perspective, showing that she may be evil for a very good reason. We're hoping this packs a little more punch than Snow White and the Huntsman, but we're not completely sold yet. At the very least, Jolie seems to be great and we have a batch of new posters.

It's a cool little piece of artwork benefiting the great Film Independent. Look!

Another 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' TV Spot Shows Off the Action

X-Men: Days of Future Past

"I'm the Wolverine." We're just a little over a couple weeks away from seeing the time travel mash-up of two different X-Men franchises comes to life in X-Men: Days of Future Past. We're trying to keep our hype in check, if only because The Amazing Spider-Man 2 turned out to be a letdown on a number of levels despite the greatness of the cast. In this case, the cast is so massive that it would be a travesty if the film wasn't a home run, but we'll find out soon enough. A new TV spot has just showed up with some more cool action shots, including Wolverine taking on a Sentinel. But that little joke bit at the end feels forced. Watch!
