After premiering at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the R-rated comedy Bad Words is coming to theaters in March. Now the first red band trailer has arrived with star Jason Bateman (Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses) using a loophole in the system to partake in the National Quill Spelling Bee. In addition, to giving kids a hard-time, he befriends a precocious, friendless Indiana boy named Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), and the two become unlikely friends and partners in crime. This comedy actually marks Bateman's debut as a feature film director, and it looks like he's crafted quite a hilarious flick. Watch below!

"That's the sound of fucking freedom!" We've seen one trailer from the United Kingdom for the raunchy comedy Dom Hemingway starring Jude Law, and now a red band trailer shows us just how dirty the Sherlock Holmes star will get. Fresh out of prison, Law plays a wild man who not only makes of for lost time with tons of booze and boobs, but also gets right back into the thick of the underworld, wanting reparations for keeping his mouth shut and spending time in prison instead of giving up his mobster boss to the police. It's a shame this doesn't hit the US until spring, because Law may have been in the awards race. Watch it!

There has been some pretty unique and clever marketing for Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy, including an advertisement for Hotel Oldboy, some escorts making the rounds at Comic-Con and a Tumblr looking at what happened over the 20 years that Josh Brolin's character Joe Doucett is held captive. Now a new red band online spot highlights the Oldboy workout as Doucett takes it upon himself to get in shape, in hopes of being released and seeking revenge against the people who put him there. In addition, a new featurette focuses on Brolin's transformation in the film. Oldboy arrives in just a few weeks, and we can't wait to see it.

Following the first stylish trailer for the Sundance selected romantic action thriller Charlie Countryman, a new red band trailer has arrived that really dives into the grit of Bucharest as Shia LaBeouf finds dangerous love and the villainy of Mads Mikkelsen as he tries to stop it. This trailer is truly representative of the film, especially with the fantastical score playing over the dark, grimy underbelly of the city. Plus, there's a quote from our own Alex Billington calling the film "a hell of a feature debut" for music video and commercials director Fredrik Bond. And there's Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint with an erection.

A couple years ago, we had our eyes on the Cannes Film Festival selected action thriller Outrage from director Takeshi "Beat" Kitano, and now the director is back with a sequel called Beyond Outrage that ups the ante. This one premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and now a red band trailer has arrived to show off the film following a manipulative police crackdown on organized crime which has ignited a power struggle in the Yakuza underworld. Kitano also stars in the film as an intimidating crime boss fresh out of prison. This looks violent as hell and bad ass, so you should watch Outrage on Netflix Instant now.

Without getting raunchy, the first trailer for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was pretty damn hilarious. Now for everyone who wasn't convinced that this is truly a Jackass movie, one final red band trailer has made its way online, leading up to the release this Friday. Johnny Knoxville pulls out all the stops, not to mention a certain part of Irving Zisman's body, in this raunchy preview of a comedy that takes the wild antics of Jackass and tosses in a Borat sort of twist. We'll be interested to see if a big audience turns out for this flick since Jackass isn't super popular anymore, but we think it's fresh enough to work. Watch!

Though it doesn't really seem like James Franco would be much of an adversary for Jason Statham, the thriller Homefront has pitted them against each other. Franco is a southern drug dealer who doesn't like an undercover cop trying to start a new life on his turf, and in this new red band trailer, he shows that he means business by busting the knee caps of some new meth dealers who are invading his territory. Then we get into normal trailer territory with some kick-ass action and some profanity thrown around for good measure. We're still not sure if this will be good, but maybe Franco and Statham will make it fun. Watch!

Though there might not be much in the offering of horror on the big screen this month, with the exception of the remake of Carrie hitting theaters tomorrow, we've had quite a lot of horror titles kick off the hype machine lately. The trailers for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and The Devil's Due surfaced this week, and now one more horror film has unleashed a red band trailer, along with a stylish retro poster. Here Comes the Devil follows a couple's children who go missing. in the caves of Tijuana. And though they survive the experience, when they return home, there's still horror lurking around the corner. Watch!

"If you're single, we're staying single with you, man." It's a group of bros, who all try to enjoy the single life, but real romance is waiting around the corner. But what makes That Awkward Moment a bit more promising than your average romantic comedy is the R-rating. And here in the red band trailer, Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan get a little raunchy. There's a great technique for peeing with an erection and not making a mess, which the guys will appreciate, and plenty of shirtless Zac Efron for the ladies as well. This looks like it could be a fun little flick to make the dull January window tolerable. Watch!

"I'm sinnin' all the time. All I do is sin." If the Ghostbusters were a bunch of foul-mouthed, lewd, crude, drunk men of debauchery, they'd be Hellbenders. The new horror comedy from J.T. Petty follows a group of Brooklyn men (Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr. and Dan Fogler) who are always sinning to the maximum so they're ready for damnation, in order to send demons back to hell. But of course, one demon proves to be more of a challenge, and possesses one member of the team. This is a great premise, and the red band trailer is pretty crass and hilarious, which is just want we want from a good horror comedy. Watch!

"Who's gonna be left? Us or them?!" Take a huge party like we've seen in Project X, and add a weird sci-fi element, and we have an intriguing film from IFC Films called +1. David (Rhys Wakefield from The Purge) and Teddy (Logan Miller of "I'm with the Band") get into this epic party full of booze, boobs and plenty of debauchery. While one messes things up with his girlfriend (Ashley Hinshaw of About Cherry and Chronicle) the other has the best night of his life. But when a power outage somehow creates a strange phenomenon where they see doubles of themselves living out the events from earlier in the night. A new red band trailer shows the potentially deadly results of confronting their twins and quite a sexy party. Watch!

"I'm a genuine, high-caliber, fucker-people-upper." Well, this is about as ridiculous as it gets. The new red band trailer for Machete Kills gets silly, bloody, gruesome and hilarious. If you want to save some of the outrageous deaths for the theaters, you might want to steer clear of this new trailer, because there are some wild kills, courtesy of Danny Trejo. Plus, we get a better handle on the crazy villain that Mel Gibson is having a lot of fun bringing to life and all his minions get in on the action too. Complete with hilarious one-liners, this shows us that Machete Kills is really going to up the ante on the grindhouse action comedy.

"Welcome to the darkness, bitches." After some first look photos surfaced from the new comedy Neighbors from Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets director Nicholas Stoller, we were pretty interested to see the first footage from the 2014 summer release. Now we get that treat in the form of a red band trailer that looks very promising. It's a short teaser, but it does feature Seth Rogen acting like a goober grown-up with his wife (Rose Byrne) as his new neighbors, a college fraternity led by Zac Efron, begin to turn his neighborhood into a hell from which there is no escape. This looks like another great comedy. Watch below!

Following the saucy first look photos at director Catherine Hardwicke's new film Plush, the first red band trailer is here. However, the trailer doesn't really show anything more risque than those photos, and we're not sure why this is an R-rated trailer. Maybe it's that needle going into someone's neck, but there's no nudity or swearing at all. Anyway, this is really just a teaser for the story of a rock musician (Emily Browning) who loses her mind after her brother and bandmate dies from a drug overdose. Her life seems better after meeting new friend and guitarist (Xavier Samuel), but secrets and danger lurk in his past.
