Byline: Jake Coyle

NEW YORK -- The Tribeca Film Festival unveiled the second half of its slate of 97 movies, including films starring recent Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as documentaries on Rosanne Barr and R&B star Mary J. Blige.

Two days after announcing the festival's competition categories, Tribeca revealed the rest of its 2015 lineup Thursday. Among the films premiering at the annual New York festival are: "The Wannabe,'' a Martin Scorsese-produced New York mafia drama starring Arquette and Vincent Piazza; the latest dark comedy from Neil LaBute, "Dirty Weekend,'' starring Matthew Broderick; and the zombie thriller "Maggie,'' starring Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin.

Documentaries added to the festival include "Rosanne for President!'' about Barr's bid to get on the 2012 presidential ballot, and "Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions,'' about the recording of the R&B star's latest album. Blige will perform after the film's screening.

A handful of notable films that have premiered elsewhere will also make stops in Tribeca: Andrew Niccol's drone warfare drama "Good Kill''; Paul Weitz's "Grandma,'' starring Lily Tomlin; and John Maclean's Western "Slow West'' with Michael Fassbender.

The 14th annual Tribeca Film Festival opens April 15 with the premiere of the "Saturday Night Live'' documentary "Live From New York.'' It runs through April 26.
