Tribeca Film Festival: 'The Five-Year Engagement,' 'The Avengers' And 11 Other Anticipated Films

The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday night with the premiere of "The Five-Year Engagement" and closes ten days later with a screening of Joss Whedon's "The Avengers." In between those big-budget Hollywood productions lies the heart of the festival: indie films featuring some of your favorite stars (Olivia Wilde, Emily Blunt, Greta Gerwig) and a plethora of timely documentaries.

Wondering which films could break out during the eleventh edition of the Tribeca Film Festival? Check out HuffPost Entertainment's preview below, and come back here between now and April 28 for all things Tribeca.

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival kicks off with Jason Segel's latest romcom. Sure, it takes place in San Francisco and Michigan, but "The Five-Year Engagement" owes more to New York-based classics "Annie Hall" and "When Harry Met Sally" than anything else. Emily Blunt, Alison Brie and Chris Pratt co-star in the film, which arrives for mass consumption on April 27.
