'Community' among series that get the axe

Fans of NBC's beloved comedy "Community" were so achingly close to the fabled six seasons and a movie, but it was not to be.

On Friday, just before next week's upfronts (in which the new fall schedules are announced for advertisers), "Community" was one of a slew of shows canceled and renewed by the networks.

Cast and creators took to Twitter to confirm the sad news and thank the fans and their colleagues for five seasons.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer debuts

It has one of the most interesting casts of any movie this year, and we finally got our first look at the highly-anticipated "Guardians of the Galaxy" Tuesday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

The trailer introduces us to Chris Pratt's Peter Quill – or as he prefers to be called, "Star-Lord."

Transformers, Captain America, Spider-Man return with new trailers

As we all know by now, the Super Bowl isn't just about a football game. And it's not just about splashy ads for products either.

Studios also use it to launch new trailers (or at least first looks at upcoming films). In some cases, the 30-second movie ad is just a teaser for the full trailer online.

In the case of "Transformers: Age of Extinction," the ad was all we got but it was the first anyone had seen of Michael Bay's big fourquel, with new human star Mark Wahlberg.

The spot doesn't just feature the former Marky Mark running from the evil Decepticons' reign of terror, it also includes the already-much discussed sight of Optimus Prime riding a Dinobot.

Check out the first look at Dinobot Grimlock's big movie debut below ("Extinction" arrives June 27).

Meanwhile, the second full trailer for "Captain America: Winter Soldier" landed, and it just may have outdone the first.

This time, we learn more about the mysterious villain, the Winter Soldier and get a better look at Captain America's high-flying comic book sidekick, Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

The action spectacular, co-starring Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford arrives April 4.

But for a really good look at an upcoming sequel, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was the one to beat. A four-minute trailer was unveiled on Super Bowl Sunday, and one thing is clear: Spidey has a lot to contend with come May 2.

He's going up against a Rhino, a Goblin and most prominently, Jamie Foxx's Electro, who apparently starts out as a nerdy fan of Spidey's, but feels wronged by the web-slinger.

Take that, plus a heaping helping of Andrew Garfield bantering with Sally Field, and Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy in mortal danger and you have one epic trailer.

Which of these sequels are you most looking forward to?
