New Trailers of Note

1. Burn After Reading - The new Coen Brothers movie starring Brad Pitt, George Clooney, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand. A comedy about gym employees that find a disc with CIA information and try to blackmail the agent that lost it. Laughed out loud when Clooney said "rear entry situation."

2. He's Just Not That Into You - Romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johannson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Justin Long. Looks like a decent 'date movie', but an extremely suspect use of The Cure's "Friday I'm in Love". Maybe.

Click below for 6 more new and notable trailers.

3. Australia - New Baz Luhrman epic starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Looks interesting, beautiful and rugged.

4. Synecdoche - Not a trailer, but 3 scenes from the new movie from writer/director Charlie Kaufman. Starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Jennifer Jason Leigh. (the other 2 clips are on the right under 'Related Videos').

5. Zack and Miri Make a Porno - New Kevin Smith movie starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. Funny.

6. The Happening - New from M. Night Shymalan. Better trailer.

7. Vicky Cristina Barcelona - New Woody Allen movie starring Scarlett Johannson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Maybe. Cool shots of Barcelona, including the Sagrada Familia.

8. Choke - The second adaptation of a Chuck Palahniuk novel (the first was a little movie called Fight Club) starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston and Kelly MacDonald. Looks funny and irreverent. It will either be great or horrible.
