"He knows the lobster man is out there, and he's totally screwed!" OR awesome upcoming trailers for your viewing pleasure

Sunshine Cleaning

I'm really excited to see this-it looks so sweet! Plus, I love Emily Blunt. Now, those incredibly talented people that put trailers together know exactly what to do to suck the audience in, so surely I am not also motivated to see this film because of the PERFECTLY touching song and accompanying clips. No, not me!

Public Enemies

All scandalous ranting aside, I'm a big fan of Christian Bale. His acting, anyway. I also happen to really enjoy Michael Mann's movies, although I haven't seen the poorly received Miami Vice. I haven't exactly warmed to the immensely popular Johnny Depp, but there is certainly no doubt that he's an excellent actor. He practically exudes acting talent. Did you hear that accent?

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Two words: Tim Riggins. Just kidding! That only accounts for a fraction of my interest in this movie! Well, a large fraction, but a fraction nonetheless. I'm beginning to grow fond of Hugh Jackman, and I find Liev Schreiber strangely appealing. I also happen to thoroughly enjoy a good action movie, even if it is about mutants and I've never read a single comic book in my life. (By the way, I'm sorry for the annoying red band at the top of the trailer-it just came out TODAY, so I couldn't find a better video.)

Funny People

After watching the trailer something like 10 times, I knew I needed to amend this post. There is something so appealing about Adam Sandler when he takes on more serious roles, even though the funny never really goes away. I hesitated to include the trailer because it's a bit irreverent and slightly bawdy, but I have a real appreciation for movies that can bring on a genuine guffaw and hearty laughter, with just a touch of real human emotion and sweetness. Let's face it, Judd Apatow and crew are masters. Perhaps Eric Bana should channel his comedic self more often?
