Letting a burglar invade your home may be a whole lot less messy than shooting that burglar in self-defense – at least, that’s the message the new trailer for Cold in July sends.

The movie, made by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici, is adapted from Joe Lansdale ’80s-set novel of the same name about a man who shoots and kills a burglar only for the burglar’s father to come after him for revenge. Michael C. Hall, Don Johnson, and Sam Shepard star in the thriller.

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering a new phase in its maturation. Last month, the Madison Square Garden Company purchased 50 percent of Tribeca Enterprises, the entity that runs the festival. MSG’s world-class venues, like the Beacon Theatre and Radio City Music Hall, give the festival a higher profile. The deal also represents some permanence: Tribeca isn’t going away anytime soon.

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past.jpg

The third and final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past has arrived, and it’s Wolverine’s time to shine.

This is The Clawed One’s (Hugh Jackman) call to action, the scenes that find him traveling back in time to confront a despondent Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) to unite two generations of X-Men — those from the original films, and those of X-Men: First Class – to fight a war that threatens the existence of mutants and mankind alike.

That means we get both McAvoy and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, as well as Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen as Magneto. This time out, young professor gets a free cheap-shot at his best frenemy. Take a look: READ FULL STORY

'If I Stay' trailer: Chloe Grace Moretz makes a tough choice

If-I-Stay.jpg

Move over, superheroes. Summer 2014 may just be the summer we all cry through our favorite YA adaptations.

Sobfest The Fault in Our Stars will be released in June, and now, the first trailer for the also-anticipated YA smash novel If I Stay is here. The film follows Mia (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenage cellist, while she’s in a coma following a horrible car accident that’s killed the rest of her family. The novel takes the unconscious Mia on a journey through her memories as she tries to decide whether to die — or to stay.

“It’s much darker than I think most YA is,” Moretz told EW. “I want people to walk in and feel like they actually felt something, and learned something, and realized something different about life that’s more than just, ‘Oh, I saw this love triangle and it’s super sad because she chose the guy I didn’t like. And then the movie was over.’ And you’re like, ‘Okay, that’s pathetic.’ You want to watch something that actually means something and makes you feel and makes you want to be involved. That’s what I wanted to make and that’s what I strive to make.”

Box office brief: Will Christian audiences turn out for 'Heaven Is for Real'?

It’s no secret that Christian-themed films have the potential to be box office gold, but even though faith-based audiences are starved for more material, it doesn’t always pan out the way studios might hope.

While Paramount’s expensive and provocative Darren Aronofsky-directed Noah continues to climb the steep slope toward domestic profitability and Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s Son of God failed to reach Passion of the Christ heights (after seven weeks in theaters it still hasn’t even made Passion‘s opening weekend numbers), the independently released God’s Not Dead came out of nowhere and stunned the major studios with its mighty box office ascent. The $2 million film, now playing in 1,860 locations, has made nearly $41.5 million in just four weekends in theaters.

Now, TriStar Pictures is rolling out its drama Heaven Is for Real on Wednesday in 2,400 locations. Based on the best-selling book by Pastor Todd Burpo about his real-life encounter with the divine, Heaven Is for Real tells the story of his young son, who claims to have visited Heaven during a near-death experience. Greg Kinnear portrays the pastor in the adaptation, and newcomer Connor Corum plays his son Colton. Despite the heavy religious bent, analysts believe that the film will play to both faith-based and mainstream audiences and predict a $20 million five-day opening for the $12 million film.
