by at . Comments

Where's the director? Who the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch playing!? HOW DID InAPPropriate COMEDY GET MADE!?????

These are the big movie questions of the week. Here's a recap of all the week's biggest movie news, trailers, and premieres, via our friends at Movie Fanatic.

Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek Into Darkness

The Week's Biggest Trailers:

This week, we had a couple of major trailers drop. On Tuesday we saw the new Despicable Me 2 trailer, starring Steve Carell.

Then the young adult novel adaptation The Host came out with its final trailer.

The biggest trailer of the week, however, is the new Star Trek Into Darkness international trailer that dropped yesterday, featuring a little glimpse at Alice Eve in her undies. Oh, and some other stuff too, I guess.

Christina Applegate in Going the Distance

The Week's Biggest Casting News:

The set of Jane Got Again had a major shakeup this week, as director Lynne Ramsay never showed up for the first day of shooting. Her departure then caused actor Jude Law to quit the film. Luckily, a new director has already been chosen and Law's replacement is soon to be cast.

We also learned that Christina Applegate will co-star in the new Vacation, alongside Ed Helms, who will play an adult version of Rusty from the previous films.

Finally, Sarah Silverman joined the cast of A Million Ways to Die in the West, the new live action comedy from Seth MacFarlane.

James Franco as Alien

New Releases:

Spring Breakers had a limited release last weekend, and hits theaters wide today. Check out our Spring Breakers review.

The action flick Olympus Has Fallen comes out today. In the Olympus Has Fallen review over at Movie Fanatic, the film was referred to as "Die Hard in the White House." Sounds pretty sweet!

The Croods, Admission, and InAPPropriate Comedy also come out today.
