The new Shailene Woodley film "The Fault in Our Stars" unveiled its first trailer Wednesday, and it promises to be a tearjerker of a romance. Adapted from the bestselling young-adult novel by John Green, the movie stars Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Ansel Elgort as  Augustus "Gus" Waters,  two teenage cancer patients who meet cute and fall in love -- in spite of Hazel's reluctance, the trailer suggests. In the trailer, which you can watch above, Hazel warns in voice-over that her story won't be sugarcoated.

After the coffee. Before getting in State of the Union mode. The Skinny: I've watched the first two episodes of Fox's "The Following," and while the producers have done a good job coming up with compelling and creepy new characters, I'm not sure I'm up for another season of murder and mayhem. It's very draining. Tuesday's headlines include the latest twist in Charter's efforts to buy Time Warner Cable. Also, movie theater owners want shorter trailers and media pundits are busy analyzing Jay Leno's final interviews.

Cinema owners have long complained about the length of movie trailers. Now they're clamping down. New guidelines issued Monday by the National Assn. of Theatre Owners call for limiting the length of movie trailers to two minutes. The guidelines, which the trade group said were designed to "maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the industry's marketing efforts," also call for restricting marketing time for trailers to 150 days prior to the release date of the film, and 120 days for all other in-theater marketing materials.

Does James Franco ever sleep? In the past year, he's starred in such diverse films as "Oz the Great and Powerful," "Spring Breakers" and "This Is the End"; directed art house efforts like "Sal" and "Interior. Leather Bar. "; mentored Gia Coppola in adapting his book "Palo Alto Stories" into a film; been roasted on Comedy Central; mounted an unusual Oscar campaign; and even parodied a Kanye West video for good measure. Now a new trailer has been released for his directorial effort "Child of God," adapted from the novel by Cormac McCarthy.

Three full weeks of 2014 passed before James Franco did something bookish and newsworthy: He directed "Child of God," a film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's 1973 novel, and the (extremely violent) trailer is now online. "Child of God" was McCarthy's third novel; like his other early books, it is set in rural Tennessee. In it, a man who is a town outcast is pushed and compelled beyond the margins of society to depravity and murder. Brutal, wild, and without conscience, he is described -- bitterly?

The Kickstarter-backed film version of the cult-favorite teen TV series "Veronica Mars" has taken another step on its journey to theaters with the release of its first trailer, which finds star Kristen Bell up to her old sleuthing tricks in the seaside town of Neptune, Calif. Though the mystery series, which ran for three seasons on UPN and the CW, never found mainstream success and was canceled in 2007, it did attract an ardent core of fans who have since clamored for a movie. They got the chance to show they were serious back in March, when Bell and series creator Rob Thomas reunited to launch a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $2 million to fund the film.

Having grown up living in a trailer -- but having never, ever watched “Duck Dynasty” -- I feel uniquely qualified to say this: Enough with the trailer-trash TV shows. I don't really care which side of the septic tank you stand on regarding the stuff that “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson spouted . Like a mountain lion stalking a deer (an example the show's fans might like), he was just doing what came natural when he mouthed off about gays, blacks, God and the little woman.

If there was any doubt that this year's Oscars will have a dance-y quality with Ellen DeGeneres on the stage, it was quelled Thursday afternoon. The Motion Picture Academy has released a trailer for the March 2 ceremony on ABC, and it gets its “Singin' In the Rain On.” The spot features the Oscar host walking down city streets/studio backlot lipsynching to the Fitz and the Tantrum song “The Walker,” particularly its maverick-ish lyrics “(I walk to the sound of my own drum”)
