The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters.  Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal.  Plus, that movie is playing out of competition.  Among the indies, the one I’ll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.  Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg‘s Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh‘s Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee JonesThe Homesman, Ryan Gosling‘s Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou‘s Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan‘s The Captive.

Hit the jump to check out the full lineup.  The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th.

DreamWorks Animation has released a new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer and poster.  Director Dean Deblois’ animated sequel takes place five years after the first installment, as Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless are exploring new territories while the rest of their friends are enjoying dragon races.  During one of Hiccup and Toothless’ journeys, they discover a secret ice cave, hundreds of new wild dragons, and the mysterious Dragon Rider.  This trailer has the blend of humor and drama I was hoping the movie would provide, and I’m surprised and encouraged that they’re leaning more heavily on the emotional side than the comedy even though the jokes are still funny.  The first How to Train Your Dragon set a high bar.  The sequel could very well meet it.

The first quarter of 2014 had a good handful of movies that lived up to our expectations including The LEGO Movie, The Raid 2, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and more.  Now we’re at Q2, so it’s time for the blockbusters.  Summer has arrived even earlier than usual with Captain America: The Winter Soldier leading off April, and there are plenty of other sequels headed our way.  There are three sequels on all three of our lists, and while it’s easy to be excited when you have a good idea of what came before, there are also some fresh movies (or at least non-sequels) in the bunch.

Once again, Adam, Dave, and Matt have each compiled a Top 5 list of most-anticipated movies for the next three months.  Hit the jump to find out what they can’t wait to see and why.

America-Ferrera-Cesar-Chavez-movie-interview

Opening this weekend is director Diego Luna’s Cesar Chavez.  Starring Michael Peña in the title role, Cesar Chavez takes a look at the man’s life from laborer to leader, and the non-violent demonstrations he championed.  Just in case anyone really hasn’t heard of Chavez, he dedicated his life to improving the working conditions of California farm workers, eventually co-founding the National Farm Workers Association, which would later become the United Farm Workers.  The film also stars Rosario Dawson as Dolores Huerta, Chavez’s partner in activism and co-founder of what eventually became the UFW, America Ferrera as Chavez’s wife Helen, and John Malkovich as a farm owner.

At the recent press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with America Ferrera.  She talked about how much she knew before getting cast in the movie, how she prepared for the role, how the film doesn’t try and tell his whole story, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

The summer movie season is just around the corner, and while 2014 isn’t as overloaded with crazy releases as 2015, there is still plenty to look forward to.  We’ve got sequels, reboots, sequel-reboots, remakes, and even the rare original story all slated to open, and the folks over at Rotten Tomatoes have put together a ranked list of the most anticipated films based on the site’s user rankings.  Coming in at #1 on the list with 100% “want to see” from a total of 110,869 votes is director Bryan Singer’s superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Having helmed the first X-Men in 2000, Singer is one of the godfathers of the modern superhero movie era.  It’s not exactly a shock that fans are eager to see his return to the X-Men franchise, since the time-bending DOFP infuses the new X-Men: First Class cast with the classic X-Men actors from the original films.

As someone with a major soft spot for Funko products, their booth at Toy Fair 2014 was a standout.  The company came with dozens of brand new items including The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy bobble heads, and POP! collections for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ghostbusters, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and more.

Mattel showed off new Hot Wheels and Frozen products while Mezco Toyz previewed brand new pieces for Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad including a variety of six-inch Walter Whites (Bryan Cranston), a replication of the infamous pink teddy bear, and Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Clay (Ron Perlman) figurines. Underground Toys had a huge assortment of Doctor Who products while Cryptozoic Entertainment put some of their new trading card series on display.  We even caught the Khaleesi trying to sell some dragon eggs (or rather, paperweights) on the convention center floor.  We also got a look at toy lines for Anchorman 2, Axe Cop, Daft Punk, and so much more.  We snapped over 250 photos while walking around, so you can see Toy Fair for yourself after the jump.

how-train-dragon-2-need-for-speed-pompeii-posters-slice

Today, we’ve got new posters for How to Train Your Dragon 2, Need for Speed, and Pompeii.  The Dragon poster features siblings Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig), Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), and their two-headed dragon on a poster that clearly doesn’t have enough room for all of them.  Then there’s Need for Speed, which is seriously abusing the blue-orange poster cliché.  Finally, there’s the Pompeii poster where Kit Harington has apparently discovered something even more horrifying than the exploding volcano behind him.  Also, I don’t know if this is a foreign poster or not.  Everything is in English except “Pompeii” is spelled with a “J”.  Go figure.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 13th.  Need for Speed opens March 14th.  Pompeii opens in 3D on February 21st.
