Quvenzhané Wallis is far from having a hard knock life as she stars as little orphan Annie in this big screen remake of the classic Broadway musical. Also starring Cameron Diaz, Jamie Foxx and Rose Byrne, the new film is a far cry from its much less flashier predecessor, filled with pops of color and rambunctious humor. Annie arrives in US theaters on December 19, 2014.
IN THE BLOOD
Gina Carano plays a woman with a very specific set of skills, who vows to find the people responsible for abducting her husband during their Caribbean vacation. It’s one thing to mess with someone like Liam Neeson, but screwing with an MMA fighter while she’s trying to get some R&R? Now you’re just asking to get put down. In the Blood also stars Cam Gigandet, Danny Trejo and Amaury Nolasco, and is in theaters April 2014.
A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT
Check out the teaser trailer for one of the films I’m most looking forward to this year: Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. It’s a very short teaser, but it succeeded at giving me goosebumps. The film is described as a vampire spaghetti Western set in an Iranian ghost town called Bad City. The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews. If you haven’t checked out the fantastic poster, you can see it here. No release date set yet, but I will let you know when I find out.
MARVEL’S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FULL TRAILER
It seems as though Marvel released much of the same footage they put together during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but here it is nonetheless, the full-length trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper make up a team of mischievous misfits who, after stealing a much-coveted object of mysterious power. are pursued throughout the galaxy by fearsome villain Ronan the Accuser (played by The Fall and The Hobbit's Lee Pace). Guardians of the Galaxy, which also stars Karen Gillan, Benicio del Toro, Djimon Honsou and John C. Reilly, flies into theaters in August 2014.

Based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Double stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon, a lonely clerk who start to question his sanity when he encounters someone who looks exactly like him. His doppelgänger bears a striking resemblance to him, but behaves in the complete opposite manner, which perturbs Simon. The film reunites director Richard Ayoade with his Submarine stars, Noah Taylor, Sally Hawkins and Yasmin Paige, and also features Mia Wasikowska, Chris O’Dowd and Wallace Shawn. The film is slated for limited release in US theaters in May 2014.
HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS
Simon Pegg is Hector, a psychiatrist who finds himself a bit down following session after session of patients spilling their endless bad days to him. He decides to go on a much-needed vacation to unwind, which turns into a life-changing experience of Walter Mitty proportions. He realizes, through the marvels of his journey and the wisdom of Christopher Plummer, that people spend so much time and energy in the pursuit of happiness that they forget to find happiness in the pursuit. Hector and the Search for Happiness also stars Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno.
A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST
Let’s just say there are about a million things wrong with this trailer.
Starring Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried, this raunchy take on the good ol’ Western has its chuckle-worthy parts, but mostly seems like a hot (and unfunny) mess. Ridiculing the genre in a clever manner is one thing (the ice bit, for instance, is a good riff), but if you’re gonna throw in a modern joke or two it needs to be funny regardless of the time period. If you’re looking for an uproarious Western comedy, look no further than Blazing Saddles.
