First teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

I've never been truly interested in the Insidious series until now. You know why? There's a scene in this teaser where a girl learns her house is haunted through texts...on her T MOBILE SIDEKICK. Oh my god. Insidious: Chapter 3 releases May 29th next year. Check out the poster in the gallery.

First official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Well I guess no one has to watch Agents of SHIELD on the 28th anymore. Thanks to a snafu leading to a leaked teaser earlier today (which we didn't post because Flixist doesn't dabble in the dark legal arts), Marvel has gone ahead and officially released the first teaser for the much anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron

We've got a darker tone, James Spader as the killer robot Ultron, and Marvel's version of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Oh right, and HULKBUSTER YEEEEEEEEEEEAH. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1, 2015.

Red Band teaser for The Gambler is a big f**k you

I don't really know what's going on in this first teaser for The Gambler (featuring a slimmed down Mark Wahlberg), but I dig it. Most films that deliver an expletive spouting John Goodman are pretty much winners in my book. ...

Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser shows off new footage

This newest teaser for The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1 is short (clocking in at barely over a minute), but boy does it work. Showing off Lorde's new single "Yellow Flicker Beat," the teaser reveals what happens when Katniss makes her way back to District 12. Let's just say things are going to get pretty good.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.

Here is Nymphomaniac's nudity filled Director's cut teaser

First teaser for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

First trailer for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children

This teaser trailer for Jason Reitman's next film, Men, Women & Children has quite the hook. It's nearly silent, folks are looking at their phones, and people stare blankly into space. While that doesn't make for th...

US teaser trailer for Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya

First official trailer for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water

It's astonishing that Spongebob Squarepants has made it this long and still has a crazy fandom surrounding it. I remember when it first started as part of the new wave of Nicktoons as Rugrats and the like were growing up. Bu...

First teaser trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

While I've never been drawn to the Night at the Museum series myself, I know a lot of people who enjoy them. They're a harmless set of films where Robin Williams gets to dress as a convincing Teddy Roosevelt, and there are a...

First official trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
by Nick Valdez

I love how they're claiming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is "The Defining Chapter" in the story since the book itself is only a fraction of all of this. In what is most likely the most bloated title of the series, the third film takes place after the events of The Desolation of Smaug as Bilbo finds himself in the middle of a fight between Smaug, Orcs, Sauron, and many other things. 

Sorry, I'm just not into these films so I'm not the proper fellow to tell you why any of this is notable. Help me out, community! The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.

Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
by Nick Valdez

I'm loving the advertising campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 so far. Continuing on with the minimalist teasers is the Comic-Con trailer which contains the first actual footage from the film. Not much is said, but a lot is teased. If I had one qualm about the footage, it's going to take me a bit to get used to Julianne Moore's hair/wig. But I hope that discomfort goes away since I'm still not used to looking at Lawrence's fake hair. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st. Here's the cool Comic-Con poster.

First teaser trailer for Paradise Lost starring Benecio Del Toro

I was raised to be a huge fan of Benecio Del Toro. My dad loves him because he's one of the first Latino actors to hit the big time, and he wasn't part of the Latin Boom in the mid 90s either (Although that boom did bri...

First teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is cooler than you'd expect photo
First teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is cooler than you'd expect
by Nick Valdez

Rather than go for the conventional teaser trailer that we run on the site everyday, our first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is much better than I expected. A unique twist on the viral propaganda campaign the film has been running for the last few months, here we have a message from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) explaining why The Capitol is so important. 

If you've read the books, you understand why Snow's with a certain guest in the video. If you haven't then you're going to have so many questions. A cool delivery with a teased mystery? That's the perfect way to make teaser trailers, folks. More please. 

Expect a more conventional trailer to pop up soon given that we're five months away from the film's release. I liked Catching Fire enough, so I can't wait for more. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.
