Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz slack off in 'Laggies' trailer

Being an infantile woman myself, I am always drawn to films starring infantile female protagonists. In Laggies, Keira Knightley plays exactly that. Megan (Knightley) is a 28 year old woman who doesn't want to grow up. After ...

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 full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable photo
First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable
by Nick Valdez

When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks are starting to show. Sure Baymax (Scott Adsit as the squishy robot) will get a lot of chuckles out of me, but nothing else sticks out right now. 

But with this plot (a man in a kabuki mask is attacking their city with nanobots), and the reveal of the other heroes (played by Damon Wayans Jr., Jamie Chung, TJ Miller, and Genesis Rodriguez), I'm hoping there's still something hidden away. 

Big Hero 6 releases November 7th.

Trailer for Wild with Reese Witherspoon is surprisingly subdued

After the amazing Dallas Buyer's Club I'm pretty much ready for director Jean-Marc Vallée to take me through any biographical film he damn well wants. Thankfully Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed’s me...

Here's a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer featuring Michael Rooker

I'm going to be upfront with you all. I have not seen this trailer for myself. In trying to keep as much mysticism toward the first original Marvel film in years as possible, I've only seen the first two trailers as later on...

Second The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser keeps the propaganda going

Continuing on with the awesome propaganda-like campaign, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 gives us another President Snow address. This time, however. He's joined by several surprising guests. Once again, this is both a...

First Exodus trailer has a little Christian Bale and a lot of Joel Edgerton photo
First Exodus trailer has a little Christian Bale and a lot of Joel Edgerton
by Matthew Razak

The first trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings definitely surprised me a bit. This is clearly not only Moses' story, but instead the story of Ramses and Moses together. That's an interesting take, especially since it seems to be downplaying the role of Moses in the whole event. No Charlton Heston level of drama here.

Visually this looks killer (other than white people playing Egyptians), and it should since director Ridley Scott is fantastic at visuals. Clearly there will also be some big battles and some revisions to the Moses myth going on here, but that's what's great about myths; you can rewrite them. We'll all be treated to some God-like onscreen wrath on December 12th as the new posters below show.

Trailer for Gone Girl features a murder she wrote

I think this might be my favorite trailer of 2014 so far. Based on Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name (but Flynn claims the film will have a different ending) and directed by David Fincher, stars Ben Affleck as the prime...

Japanese teaser for next Ghibli film, When Marnie Was There

Based on Joan G. Robinson's novel of the same name, When Marnie is There is about a lonely little girl who befriends a ghost. I've never read the book myself, but if it's being adapted by Studio Ghibli, I'm sure it's equal p...

First 'Horrible Bosses 2' trailer looks kind of promising

Bruce Willis is a child kidnapper in first trailer for 'The Prince'

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.

Although I don't really like The Purge because it never focused on cool crimes like eating zoo animals or naked jaywalking*, it's got a wonderful premise that's ripe for stories. And it looks like The Purge: Anarchy is going...
