This past week in London, the Sundance London Film and Music Festival took place with a flurry of filmmakers and stars attending, including Ryan Reynolds and Gemma Arterton, who were on hand to present their offbeat serial killer black comedy The Voices.

Meanwhile in New York, starts hit the red carpet for the Tribeca Film Festival. Keira Knightley, Hailee Steinfeld and Adam Levine were there with Begin Again; Michael B.

In Los Angeles, the stars of Neighbors (international title Bad Neighbours) came out for the US premiere of their new comedy, which opens next week. Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and others walked the red carpet in their finery. We have all the best photos from 'Neighbors' Los Angeles Premiere.
The most intriguing trailer this week is for Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood, shot over 12 years with his Before Sunrise star Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane as their son, who literally grows up on-screen over the course of the film. Already a hit on the festival circuit, the film arrives in cinemas in July and looks unmissable. Watch 'Boyhood' Trailer.
Sam Claflin and Lily Collins return to their British roots for the rom-com Love Rosie, which the new trailer reveals to be a rather riotously rude British teen sex romp packed with very awkward moments. They play best friends who decide to try romance when their families move apart. It opens in October. Watch 'Love Rosie' Trailer.
And there's a new trailer for the action-comedy Let's Be Cops, starring Damon Wayans Jr and Jake Johnson as apparently independently wealthy guys who dress up as policemen for a costume party, then decide to stay in character. Released in August, the film looks deeply irresponsible, and possibly hilarious. Watch 'Let's Be Cops' Trailer.
