What the South by Southwest Film Festival lacks in mainstream exposure, it makes up for in coolness. Forget Sundance, Cannes, Toronto and Telluride: Austin is where the hipper (and hipster) film fans direct their gaze to find their big deal movies. This year, however, SXSW is home to plenty of high-power features, filmmakers and stars. From Joss Whedon and Chris Hemsworth to Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, some of Hollywood's best will be debuting new films in Texas during the next week.

Ahead, the seven most-anticipated films screening at SXSW. The film portion of SXSW runs from March 9 through March 17. For more on the festival, click here.

After premiering at Sundance back in January and nabbing a distribution deal from FilmDistrict, "Safety Not Guaranteed" has made its way south. The film -- based on a 2005 Internet meme about a man who placed a classified ad looking for a time-travel companion -- stars Aubrey Plaza ("Parks and Recreation") and Jake Johnson ("New Girl") and could be the quirky romance that your hipster friends just need to see when it hits theaters this June.
