Whoever did the background score and sound effects for Prometheus — well done. Even though we didn’t get to see any real carnage, but only the suggestions of it, the various screams and pleas punctuated by a looming, foreboding swell of music made us crawl under our duvet. We already know this movie is going to be terrifying. It’s the prequel to the Alien series and is directed by who else but Ridley Scott. The cast is pretty amazing too with Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba starring. Prometheus will be out in theatres in June, 2012. Until then, this chilling trailer should suffice.
IT’S HERE! Ok, not quite. Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will only hit theatres on December 14, 2012, but the first trailer is out, and it looks epic. Lord of the Rings fans know that The Hobbit deals with the story of Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman in this film) and his quest to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the dragon Smaug. Sir Ian McKellan reprises his role as Gandalf the Grey, and Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood and Cate Blanchett also makes appearances as Gollum, Legolas, Frodo and Galadriel, respectively. Evangeline Lilly and Luke Evans are also on board playing Tauriel and Bard.
The second Hobbit movie — The Hobbit: There and Back Again — will be out in 2013 and is also directed by Jackson. The film may have been released long after The Lord of the Rings trilogy hit cinemas, but the story is actually a prequel to LOTR. Just watch our inner nerds come out with this one.
This one’s for all of you who enjoyed Sam Worthington‘s glowering turn as Perseus in Clash Of The Titans last year. The official trailer for the sequel — Wrath Of The Titans — is out and is scheduled to hit cinemas next year. All the usual suspects are in: Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson, who now wants Perseus’ help ’cause dem Titans (who they believe to be “imprisoned forever”) are breaking free and they’re pissed! The eye candy in the movie is courtesy Rosamund Pike. As for Worthington, he’s still glowering but has longer, curlier hair which takes the edge off. Besides, the action and effects in this one look pretty insane. We’d put this in the ‘must watch’ pile.
Would you watch a movie about a couple who have to keep pushing back their wedding, due to unforeseen circumstances? Normally, we’d answer, no. But when that couple happens to be Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, and it’s directed by Nicholas Stoller and produced by Judd Apatow, and it also co-stars Mindy Kaling, Alison Brie and Chris Pratt, we’ll probably get off the couch and get in line for tickets. The official trailer for The Five Year Engagement has been released. And, OK, we’re sold. But they’ll get married in the end, right? RIGHT? We’re not sure if we can handle all that waiting with no payoff.
You guys, we just watched the Jersey Shore season five trailer and, well, it felt like renewing our vows. We promised to watch Snooki and the gang in sickness and in health, and between the milk fights, crab flinging and cake strippers, it looks like this season is going with sickness. Kicking off January 5, Jersey Shore finds the sepia-hued gang back in Seaside Heights for more thrills, spills (of the Meatball variety) and Deena falling down under an overstuffed garbage bag. And Deena crying. And Deena almost getting knocked off a dock by an exceptionally large breeze. Either way, we picked out seven moments that made us think that season five might be the best season of all. The duck phone forever!
Crank that rock ‘n’ roll because Footloose is back for more! We all remember Kevin Bacon’s breakout role as the dude who just wants to dance in a town full of people with two left feet, right? Well now, twenty-seven years after the original, it’s almost time to cut loose once again with a hot new remake featuring Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough. It’s fresh, it’s fun and it hits theaters this Friday! How does the new version compare to the classic we know and love? Will rock still prevail? Will kids be dancing in the streets? And will we be dancing in the theater aisles? We hope so. Check out the gallery below to see who’s reviving your Footloose favorites. Plus you can peep the trailer under the jump and to get even more pumped for Friday!

Well, what have we here? A new Breaking Dawn trailer!? (Peep the first BD trailer here.) Don’t mind if we do! Fandango‘s got the exclusive first look, and we counted a few new moments form the movie jam-packed into the 30-second clip. Let’s review what’s new below, and feel free to tell us if we’ve missed anything, fellow fangirls. We’re counting on you!
1) :01-:05 — A new Edward and Bella interaction! Edward: “It’s not too late to change your mind.” Bella: “I know I can do this.” Eddie C.: “I’ll meet you at the altar.” Audience: “SWOON!”
2) :12 — A little bit more headboard breaking action! Like .25 of a second more, but we’ll take all the Robert Pattinson rippling back muscles we can get.
3) :14 — A shot of some pretty mountains. Very Lord of the Rings-esque, dontcha think?
4) :20-:24 — Wolves snarling atop some pretty mountains. The most realistic looking Wolf Pack yet?
5) :25 — A magical marriage moment between Edward and Bella: “Well, what’s a wedding without some drama?” Allow us to dork out for a minute here. How hot does Edward sound saying this? All confident and cocky and mature. A bit different from the sullen (yet still sexy) and introverted Edward of the Twilight days of yesteryear. Seems like the vamp hunk (and, dare we say, the actor who plays him) has grown into a strapping, self-assured young man who looks damn fine in a suit.
Eerie. Unsettling. Swedish. Yup, the new trailer for “the feel bad movie of Christmas” is definitely keeping our interest piqued. Less bizarre and artistic than the first sneak-peek, the new Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trailer delves deeper the plot of the upcoming David Fincher remake (aka murder, hacking, and the creepiest all-blonde family you’ll likely ever meet). The new footage also showcases more of the girl herself Rooney Mara, who we…kind of like more than the original movie’s leading lady Noomi Rapace? Rooney’s protagonist seems more like an actual badass person than your stereotypical tattooed robo-hacker (you know the kind), though can we really tell that from a handful of trailers? The point is: as long as this film has Daniel Craig, terrifying wealthy Europeans and massive explosions, which it does, then you know we’ll be seeing it opening night.
You guys, we apologize in advance for this, because we’ve now turned into 10 year olds. The Breaking Dawn teaser has NOTHING on the new official Breaking Dawn trailer which we’ve already watched ten times by now. Where do we even start? The wedding scene? The honeymoon scene where Robward (Robert Pattinson meets Edward Cullen, natch) sweeps Krisabella (Kristen Stewart plus Isabella Swan) in his arms and they indulge in some headboard breaking? Where he tells her their somethin’-somethin’ “…was this best night of my existence”.
We ached for Jacob when he dances with Bella and says goodbye to her and when he later, fights for her when the wolf pack comes to tear her apart (“If you kill her, you kill me”, swoon) because Sam doesn’t know “… what they’ve bred”. Enough typing — we’re going to watch it again!
Johnny Depp and The Rum Diary seem to be the perfect mix. But before we say anything else, we just have to ask you to look for a little Jack Sparrow in him while watching the trailer! It’s there, right? Must be all the rum. The film’s based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson, FYI. It follows Johnny’s character, a journalist called Paul Kemp, who is so done with America and the Eisenhower administration that he heads to Puerto Rico to write for The San Juan Star. And what proceeds is lurching through a lot of drinking thrown in with some self-destructive comrades, and some alcoholic, violent lust for Amber Heard‘s character, Chenault. Watch the trailer — you’re not going to want to miss this one.
