Trailer Watch: The final John Carter (of Mars) trailer

The final John Carter trailer, and it’s easily the best one yet. The action is great, the effects look pretty seamless, and it’s the only one to actually give you any idea what the plot is.

I know a lot of people have been rumbling about how old hat the film looks — a gladiator bit, giant CG armies, and all that — but I have enough faith in Andrew Stanton (WALL·E, Finding Nemo) to tell any story well. We’ll know how right (or wrong) I am on March 9th.

Thanks to The Beat for the heads up!

Trailer Watch: Hot Rod director Akiva Schaffer’s Neighborhood Watch

The Sun has the trailer for Akiva Schaffer’s Neighborhood Watch, starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and The IT Crowd‘s Richard Ayoade. It’s just a couple of clips, but the second one got a good laugh out of me.

The screenplay was written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Superbad). Neighborhood Watch hits the US on July 22.

(Thanks for the heads up Joe Dunn and Ethan Anderton!)

Trailer Watch: Marvel’s The Avengers Trailer 2

The second full trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers is up, and I think it’s pretty freakin’ awesome. What say you?

(Sorry about the pre-roll ad for Mass Effect 3, but hey, I don’t host these things — I got this via Pajiba. You can check it out ad-free and in higher definition over at Apple.)
