If this week’s trailers were in a Jeopardy category together, it would have to be “Movies About Things That Aren’t Human”: You’ve got the giant robots in Hugh Jackman’s Real Steel, the aliens in I Am Number Four, the giants who are both robots and aliens in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the chatty birds in Rio, and Mel Gibson’s disturbing puppet in The Beaver, to name a few. Check them out, and then let us know which one you think will get the most actual human into theaters. READ FULL STORY

Need a cheat sheet for the week’s best trailers?

Check them all out after the jump! READ FULL STORY
Okay, okay, Bear Grylls munching on giant rhino beetle larvae technically grosses me out more, but after seeing the latest Yogi Bear trailer in a crowded theater, I can confirm that I’m not the only one who gives an audible “Ewww” when that worm pops out of Yogi’s nose. Watch both below at your own risk. (And enjoy your lunch/dinner!) READ FULL STORY
Two of this year’s award season darlings look like being the James Franco-starring 127 Hours and the Natalie Portman-starring Black Swan. As it happens, Franco and Portman will be seen together next spring in Your Highness, a movie that I don’t think it’s rude to suggest has little hope of currying a whole lot of favor with Oscar voters. Instead, judging by the new red band trailer you can find after the jump, the movie is firmly aimed at people who believe that watching the foul-mouthed offspring of Pineapple Express and Monty Python and the Holy Grail would be a splendid way of spending a couple of hours. Certainly, it features more things unsuitable for young eyes and ears than I could shake a pair of coconut halves at.
Take a look and tell us what you think.
Werewolves, forbidden love, Lukas Haas, oh my! Warner Bros. has released the trailer for Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood, in which Amanda Seyfried plays the hooded — and quite stylish — object of desire in the supernatural love triangle. Based on this spot, Red Riding Hood will be visually stunning — the film is far more colorful than Hardwicke’s last supernatural love story, Twilight, and the cinematography certainly appears to capture the spirit of its fairy tale inspiration. (The architecture alone is otherworldly.) What I’m mostly curious about (besides why they seemed to bury the lead by not touting Leonardo DiCaprio’s producing credit): Will Red Riding Hood choose a more Hollywood-friendly ending, with Seyfried’s character overcoming the werewolf, or will the film swerve in a far darker, Charles Perrault-esque direction, with the hooded heroine becoming the prey? Or will they just have sex? Or did the trees do it? Who knows? It could be anything! Speculate, and check out the trailer, after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Jason Statham continues to cement his status as Hollywood’s most congested actor in the new trailer for Jan. 28′s The Mechanic, in which the deep-voiced action star plays a hitman who begins mentoring an apprentice (Ben Foster) in his violent trade. (Hey, for Mr. Trump’s sake, whatever happened to good ol’ selling hot dogs to become an Apprentice?) First off, I’m excited to see Donald Sutherland starring in not one, but two movie trailers over the past week (the actor appears in The Eagle as well). And, secondly, after seeing this spot for the film — a reinvention of the 1972 action film of the same name — I’m never looking in a mirror again. It looks like there are more ways to die in this film than in a Choose Your Own Adventure book. See video embedded after the jump! READ FULL STORY
So last month’s Cars 2 teaser wasn’t a prank after all: Lightning McQueen and his rusty pal, Mater, actually steer into the world of espionage in the sequel to Pixar’s 2006 smash. The new trailer for Cars 2 has some clues, with McQueen trading the good ol’ boy NASCAR circuit for international Grand Prix racing. Somehow, this leads to intrigue when Mater and McQueen are confused for master spies, North by Northwest style. Yes, that’s Michael Caine as British operative, Finn MacMissile. READ FULL STORY
Jennifer Hudson’s Oscar victory for 2006′s Dreamgirls is one of the more inspirational narratives of the modern Academy Awards: a reality show runner-up in her acting debut outshines a cast full of glitzy stars (and overcomes her film’s so-so critical and commercial response) and wins pretty much every major supporting-actress award of the season. (Hey, as far as good stories go, it beats “Glam actress doesn’t wash face, gets Oscar.”) Now, it looks like Hudson has finally found a potential Oscar-bait follow-up. She’ s playing Winnie Madikizela-Mandela opposite Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela in the upcoming film Winnie, currently slated to debut at film festivals in early 2011. Check out the first trailer below. READ FULL STORY
Jake Gyllenhaal is sexy. Anne Hathaway is sexy. Everything about Love and Other Drugs‘ numerous trailers is sexy, and, aarrrrrghhh, I so am not. Fox 2000′s quest to make us all feel genetically inferior continues today with its release of a new red-brand trailer for the Nov. 24 romantic dramedy — directed by Edward Zwick — about a Viagra salesman-slash-ladies’ man (Gyllenhaal) who falls for the one woman not quick to fall for him (Hathaway). The spot is decidedly more Apatow-esque than the previous trailers, amping up the raunch and schlubby-funny-best-pal (Josh Gad) factors. I could take or leave the cheesy three-way speak (“She’s Jamie-curious. So am I.” NO ONE EVER TALKS LIKE THAT), but I’m digging that the Gyllenhaal-Hathaway chemistry feels realistic and relatable, regardless of how ridiculously good-looking the two actors are. Watch the NSFW trailer after the jump! Okay, now back to avoiding mirrors all day today. READ FULL STORY
The world is coming to an end — again — in Battle: Los Angeles. The plot of this Jonathan Liebesman-directed film is one we’ve all seen before: Aliens invade an unprepared Earth and we battle for survival. This time the target is Los Angeles, Calif. (thanks for giving New York a break for once, Hollywood!), and the Marines are the city’s only defense. The storyline might seem familiar (see: Cloverfield, Independence Day, War of the Worlds… the list goes on), but that doesn’t make Battle: L.A. look any less epic. Not only does this trailer, and its special effects, make me excited to see the flick — starring Hollywood tough girl Michelle Rodriguez and Aaron Eckhart — but word on the street is Comic-Con loved it, based on snippets shown at the convention. Check out the trailer for the March 2011 action flick after the jump. READ FULL STORY
