Watch: Better US Trailer for 'Barely Lethal' Starring Hailee Steinfeld

Barely Lethal

"He so gets me!" A24 Films has debuted the official US trailer for Barely Lethal, the new film from Kyle Newman (Fanboys) starring Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage assassin who goes to high school. A month ago we posted a different (international) trailer for this film, and it looked awful, but even Kyle Newman went on the record saying it was a terrible trailer and you should wait for the official one (which is this one). So give this new trailer a chance! It actually looks solid, a fun throwback to wacky 90's comedy action flicks. There's some odd lines of dialogue but I think the film might be entertaining. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Jaime King, Thomas Mann, Dan Fogler and yep, Steve-O.

M. Night Shyamalan Gets Back to Scares in First 'The Visit' Trailer

The Visit

"Bedtime is 9:30. It's probably best you two shouldn't come out of your room after that." After debuting the teaser poster earlier this week, the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's return to the horror genre has arrived. The Visit seems to be a found footage horror thriller following two kids (Ed Oxenbould, Olivia DeJonge) spending a weekend with their grandparents where some very strange things happen after 9:30pm. This looks pretty creepy, though I'm not sure why the found footage angle was necessary. It almost seems like it's late to the party. Still, this will probably make you cautious about your grandparents.

First Trailer for Long-Delayed Found Footage 'Area 51' Finally Arrives

Area 51

"It would be easier to rob a bank than to break into Area 51." After striking it big in 2009 with Paranormal Activity, the next project that director Oren Peli embarked upon was another found footage thriller, this one venturing into one of the most legendary places on Earth: Area 51. The film has been waiting around for years, and now Paramount Insurge and Alamo Drafthouse are finally releasing it day and date with several digital platforms next month, but it'll only be in theaters for one weekend only. It's exactly what you would expect from a found footage horror thriller focused on Area 51, but it's R-rated, so maybe it'll be fun?

Watch: Johnny Depp Intimidates at Dinner in 'Black Mass' Trailer

Black Mass

"'Just sayin” could get you buried real quick." Yesterday brought our first look at a balding Johnny Depp as he takes on the role of real life crime boss Whitey Bulger in the new crime drama Black Mass from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. And today brings the first intense trailer for the film that looks like it actually features an interesting performance from Depp. Somehow, the actor looks more creepy balding and with blue eyes than he has as any of his other cooky characters. The trailer prominently features a tense dinner scene, and it gives off a vibe that this performance from Depp could be an awards contender. Watch!

The 'Star Wars' Easter Egg in Marvel's Phase Two Films You Can't Miss

Star Wars

There's always tons of easter eggs for comic book fans in each and every Marvel Studios film. However, now that Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm, can we anticipate any easter eggs for Star Wars in the Marvel cinematic universe? Well, yes and no. While there's likely not any easter eggs referencing characters or mythology in Star Wars within the world of The Avengers, the comic book film studio's head honcho Kevin Feige revealed that there's actually a major easter egg that is detailed in every single Phase Two film thus far, and the trend has been confirmed to continue in The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.

Final Trailer for 'Ex Machina' Cautions Against Artificial Intelligence

Ex Machina

The sci-fi thriller Ex Machina has been in limited release for a couple weeks now, but this weekend the film featuring future Star Wars actors Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac expands nationwide to theaters everywhere. And with that comes one final trailer to convince audiences to see this worthwhile flick. There's not much new footage, but the trailer uses quotes from respected scientific experts such as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about how much of a gamechanger true artificial intelligence would be, though not necessarily for the better. It's something that's on the verge of not being science fiction. Watch!

Watch: Gorgeous Second Trailer for French Animated 'Little Prince'

The Little Prince

Last winter, we featured an international teaser trailer for the animated adaptation of the classic 1943 tale The Little Prince. The film hails from France as the most expensive animated feature every produced in the country ($80 million), and the combination of wonderful 3D computer animation and beautiful stop-motion animation makes for quite the magical pairing for this story of a curious, magical prince and his interplanetary adventures. In this version (dubbed with English), the story is framed by an aviator narrator (Jeff Bridges) telling the prince's tale to his neighbor's busy little girl (Mackenzie Foy). Watch!

Watch: Third Trailer for Brad Bird's Sci-Fi Adventure 'Tomorrowland'

Tomorrowland

"You ain't seen nothin' yet!" Disney has unveiled the third trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland, starring Britt Robertson and George Clooney. This original sci-fi adventure introduces us to the other world behind Disney, Tomorrowland. The plot involves Casey Newton (Robertson) finding a mysterious magical pin and getting sucked into this adventure. We've seen plenty of glimpses already, Disney is showing footage at Disneyland, and this new trailer doesn't have anything new (that we haven't seen elsewhere) other than a few more finished VFX shots. I'm still incredibly excited for this (the weapons looks so cool!), but I want to see a bit more than we already have. In time… For now, enjoy this new trailer and featurette to go with it.

Watch: Adam Scott & Jason Schwartzman in 'The Overnight' Trailer

The Overnight

"Give me 20 minutes, and I will give you parental bliss." We're used to seeing Adam Scott in raunchy comedies like Step Brothers and Hot Tub Time Machine 2, while Jason Schwartzman is usually reserved for quirky indies. Now it looks like these two worlds will meet in The Overnight. This sex comedy that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival throws two newly acquainted couples together for what begins as a friendly, neighborly playdate between parents but turns into a weird late night sex party. This one had a lot of buzz at Sundance, but sadly I missed it, so I can't offer my own thoughts, but it looks pretty fun. Watch!

Watch: Bellas Trot the Globe in International 'Pitch Perfect 2' Trailer

Pitch Perfect 2

"They're the best at making music with their mouths." If you're not excited to see the Bellas take the stage again in Pitch Perfect 2, then maybe this new international trailer will do the trick. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and the whole a capella crew are back for the musical comedy sequel that sees the Bellas going global for the World Championship of A Capella. And because this is an international trailer, we get to see plenty of a capella teams from other countries in the competition. Pay attention closely to see who Adam DeVine has teamed up with, and see how former Bella captain Anna Camp comes into play. Watch now!

Must Watch: Dinosaurs Unleashed in Second 'Jurassic World' Trailer

Jurassic World

"She was designed to be bigger than the T-Rex." Why someone thought that a dinosaur theme park was a good idea after the events of Jurassic Park and even The Lost World, we may never know. It seems the characters in this franchise just don't understand that life finds a way. And this time, in the new trailer for Jurassic World, life has found away to overcome our most high-tech security and the certainty in our place as the dominant species of this planet. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt certainly have their hands full this time with the Indominus Rex, which we finally get to see in full in this new trailer. Watch it!

Ian McKellen Prefers a Cigar in the Full UK Trailer for 'Mr. Holmes'

Mr. Holmes

"When you're a detective and a man visits you, it's usually about his wife." So far we've only seen a couple brief teaser trailers for Mr. Holmes, the British drama that sees Lord of the Rings and X-Men franchise star Ian McKellen played an aged, retired Sherlock Holmes. Now a full trailer from across the pond has surfaced showing off more of the story. It looks like Holmes is out to clear up some details that his partner Watson exaggerated in some stories he wrote after their partnership ended, particularly in his final case. In addition, he seems to be mentoring a little boy, one who could go on to become a future detective. Watch!

It All Leads to Doom in Second Trailer for Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four'

Fantastic Four Trailer #2

"If you want to stop him, it's going to take everything you have." 20th Century Fox has unleashed the new full-length trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie, not yet part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but getting closer. They finally dropped a teaser for this in January, as we've been waiting a while to see any footage, and this is the follow-up. It still focuses on their origin and the first half of the film, but we get a glimpse at where things are headed (towards Dr. Doom) and I like what I see. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star as the new Four, plus that is Reg E. Cathey giving orders. I'm actually kinda into this, despite yet another origin story. When you change the world, prepare to defend it.

Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Batman v Superman Trailer

"Devils don't come from hell beneath us. No, they come from the sky." It's time! Feast your eyes on the very first footage from Zack Snyder's highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where we will finally see Batman fight Superman. After the teaser trailer leaked online early via bootlegs (which we don't condone watching!), Zack Snyder tweeted that the first full trailer is now here and fans will get a special IMAX trailer at the preview events on Monday. Henry Cavill returns as Superman, Ben Affleck plays Batman, and we don't see much elese, but it is a rather dark and epic first tease at what is to come. This is just a teaser but I like what we're seeing, even though it's a much different tone than Marvel. Enjoy!
