The "Scary Movie" franchise and the parody comedy genre in general have hit some hard times. With YouTube making instantaneous spoofs of current movies possible, the nine month gestation period of studio riffs makes them more or less irrelevant. That's why it's worth noting that for "Scary Movie 5," they're trying something different.
In the new trailer for the horror spoof, which stars Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, and Lindsay Lohan, movies like "Mama" and "Evil Dead" are getting poked fun at, in addition to all of the "Paranormal Activity" jokes that we saw in the first trailer.
"Mama" only came out in January, and "Evil Dead" isn't out until next month. Is what we're seeing an attempt from the "Scary Movie" camp to keep things up-to-date? We'll have to see when the movie hits theaters next month.

The latest teaser trailer for "Star Trek Into Darkness" should strike you as familiar since there are many, many references from popular culture, including "Tron" and what many people are calling "Star Wars" influences. (Side note: Wouldn't it be cool if J.J. Abrams directed a "Star Wars" movie? It could never happen though.)
Anyway, the trailer is way more action-heavy than what we've seen in the last few months and gives a lot more story than any other preview before it. Kirk, still acting recklessly, wants revenge on whomever is committing terrorists acts, and then he straps on a lightcycle helmet and jumps out of a spaceship.

After a fake trailer, a real trailer, and then an actual movie, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" franchise. There are lots of guns, violence to go along, and beautiful women, who will also have big guns.
So when we hear something like, "Oh, hey, Sofia Vergara is going to be in 'Machete Kills,'" a thought that quickly follows that news is, "Oh, that's pretty cool. She'll probably have guns coming out of her breasts or something." Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.
A new character poster for the "Grindhouse" spin-off sequel has debuted online (via Dread Central), and your first thought about her character is also the correct one.

Listen, we know that it's only the end of February, but we're thinking that it's about time for some spring break. We're so excited, in fact, that we went ahead and packed a bag to get ready and brought all of the usual items: sunglasses, extra cash, cocaine, handguns, etc.
You can find all of those items and more on the ridiculously cool new poster for "Spring Breakers," which is set for release toward the end of March. The film star Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson as bored college students who rob a restaurant to fund their out-of-control spring break trip.

Ahead of Oscar night, Mondo has once again put together a line of unspectacular prints to honor this year's nominees. The first three hit the web yesterday (via /Film), and only have us excited to see what's to come next.

Ahead of the film's March 1 release date, MTV Movies Blog is getting a very special, exclusive look at a brand new "Last Exorcism: Part II" graphic poster.
The print comes from artist Rich Knepprath and was created in anticipation of the new horror movie from producer Eli Roth.
"The Last Exorcism: Part II" continues the story of Nell Sweetzer, who managed to survive the demonic encounter from the original found footage film.

Forget all about everything else you have planned today, this "Aliens" poster made entirely out of frames from the James Cameron classic (via io9) is infinitely cooler than that stuff.
The best possible way to spend this February 14 is scrolling through every inch of this poster, which you can do with a helpful zoom tool included with the picture. They even manage to spell "James Cameron" at the bottom of the poster. Game over, man.

We've been big fans of artist Olly Moss for years now, and his latest work, an Academy-commissioned look back at the 85 years of the Oscars, is exactly what we'd hope for from the team-up.
Tasked with representing 84 Best Picture winners in one image, Moss took an interesting approach by adapting the look of the Oscar statuette to match each year's victor. The result is equally fun to look at is it is to test yourself to see if you can figure out which movie Moss is referencing.
On his tumblr, Moss briefly wrote about the challenge of the poster. "The brief was one of the hardest I've ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years."

Before David Fincher told the story of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" with Rooney Mara, a Danish television production led by director Niels Arden Oplev and star Noomi Rapace told the whole story of Lisbeth Salander. Now Oplev is bringing his talents stateside, and he's taking his leading lady with him.
"Dead Man Down," a new revenge thriller starring Rapace and Colin Farrell, debuted its first trailer last week, but today, we have your exclusive first look at a poster from the upcoming movie.

We're expecting Baz Luhrman's interpretation of "The Great Gatsby" to be nothing short of the visually decadent feasts the director is so deft in creating. But unfortunately, we'll have to wait until summer 2013 to really see the spectacle for ourselves. In the meantime, Warner Bros. has released a few character posters, giving us a sneak peek at the vibrant costumes and art deco flair particular to the film's Jazz Age era backdrop.
Each seriously stylish poster features a colorful character from the tragic tale. And if you weren't paying attention in your high school English class or simply need a refresher, lucky for you, each promo is labeled with Fitzgerald's own description of the doomed bunch.
