First trailer for Jersey Boys

Jersey Boys is a pretty easy sell. A musical about the Four Seasons featuring all their greatest hits? Yea, people are going to come out to see that. It could, however, go horribly wrong as adaptations go if they decide...

First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Red Band trailer for Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks

Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

It looks like they've saved the best trailer for last. As X-Men: Days of Future Past gets closer to its release later this May, we finally have a trailer that is as great looking as the first one. We have a good amount of plot without spoiling any of the details (such as Wolverine's mode of time travel), some neat character shout outs (and a good, hard look at Quicksilver in stupid looking googles motion), and the set pieces are full of zazz. Oh and those Sentinels look fantastic. 

Fox may have trouble with its posters, but these trailers really make the X-Men pop. I'm hoping the film can live up to this. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23rd.

And while you're waiting, why not give the Flixist X-Cast a listen? It's good stuff.

First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl photo
First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl
by Jonathan Wray

The first trailer for David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flinn's 2012 novel Gone Girl has finally appeared online. Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl tells the story of the search for Amy Dunne, who has gone missing on their fifth anniversary. One of the prime suspects is her own husband, Nick Dunne.

This will be the tenth film directed by David Fincher, whose credits include Panic Room, Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Trent Reznor will team up with David Fincher for the third time to score the film. He previously partnered with Fincher to score The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.

There's a very short list of directors that I trust to turn whatever they're given into gold, and David Fincher's name is on that list. Fincher plans to deviate from the book, including giving the story a brand new ending. Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? Find out in theaters on October 3rd.

First official trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's Kickstarter film photo
First official trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's Kickstarter film
by Jonathan Wray

There's always a long wait after a Kickstarter project ends. When that Kickstarter project is for a film, the wait is painful. When it's Zach Braff's latest film, the wait is downright torturous. Thankfully, that wait is almost over, and now we have a trailer to tide us over.

Released today, Wish I Was Here is full of Zach Braff's trademarks as a director: wide, vibrant shots, slow-motion shots, and shots with the character as an afterthought. Set to the tune of "Simple Song" by The Shins and clocking in at roughly a minute and forty seconds, it almost seems like the trailer is its own story: a guy who seems jarred by some sort of tragedy has a complete disconnect with reality and goes on wild adventures with the gorgeous Penny Lane Kate Hudson.

The trailer left me feeling emotionally drained, hopeful, adventurous, and longing for a road trip. If this is even a tenth as fantastic as Garden State was, we're all in for a treat. Keep in mind that with Garden State, Braff was creatively restrained by the powers that be. Since money was raised by the community for this film, he's free to let his creativity shine.

Expect more coverage as we lead up to Wish I Was Here's debut in theaters this July.
