Thank you, Warner Bros., for issuing that final theatrical "Harry Potter" trailer, which basically braces us fans for the most badass thing in existence.

Before this, I would probably have argued that the first "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" trailer released was the best trailer in the whole franchise (and in 2010), but this one blows it out of the water. Maybe I'm biased because they included what I will argue is the most powerful scene in the series in this teaser (hint: Harry walks into the woods), but this is the most cathartic look at the final installment a hardcore "Potter" fan can possibly ask for.

There's a whole lot of new footage in this trailer, but five moments in particular stood out to us. Click on after the jump to see which scenes made our heart beat a bit faster. Be warned, spoilers lie ahead!

Optimus PrimeThe moon will turn dark on June 29 this year, and if you've been paying any attention to the MTV Movies Blog over the past few months, you'll know that's something we're pretty darn excited about.

With the release of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" less than two weeks away (!!!), IMAX and Paramount have released a brand spanking new IMAX 3D poster exclusively to Fandango, and it looks pretty frakkin' awesome from where we're sitting.

And if you don't think Optimus Prime is giving you one of the most sultry looks we've seen on a poster in recent months, then we might not be able to be friends anymore.

The prospect of Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill starring together in a movie has tantalized us since "Moneyball" was first announced, but the first trailer for the film has us officially on board.

The story itself is an intriguing one. Brad Pitt stars as Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, who has to restructure his team based on a tight budget. He turns to recent Ivy League grad Peter Brand, played by Jonah Hill in a fictionalized version of Paul DePodesta, to help him crunch stats with new computer-generated analysis and chose his team players in a way completely different from the traditional route. It's a gamble that Beane means to win, even if the trailer leads us to believe it isn't all smooth sailing.

VoldemortContinuing the deluge of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" posters as we head into the final month before the film's release, today we have a companion poster released to go along with the ones we saw yesterday.

The first poster highlighted the good guys in the bunch -- Harry, Ron, Hermione, the Weasleys and Neville Longbottom, to name a few -- and this new one shows off our favorite baddies. There's Voldemort at the center, of course, with Bellatrix Lestrange and Lucius Malfoy flanking him, and Narcissa Malfoy looking on in the background. All this is set in the ruins of Hogwarts, as these posters have had a tendency to be, and the Death Eaters look poised for battle.

But there might be a little bit more to this poster if we read more into it. Spoilers up ahead!

TransformersWith only 15 days until "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" hits theaters, Paramount is doing its best to amp up our anticipation for the third installment of Michael Bay's saga. And they're doing it pretty well, too, considering these two words: Sentinel Prime.

Yahoo released eight new stills from the upcoming film that combined a look at the human characters in the film with some new shots of the giant fighting robots we are most looking forward to seeing. While we're sure there are going to be a whole lot more surprises in the movie once it is released June 29, it's nice to get continuous sneak peeks at how great the action is going to be.

Final Destination 5Thankfully someone came to their senses and ditched the pervy-looking "5nal Destination" title (don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about), and now we can focus on all the badass death scenes that surely await the new victims of "Final Destination 5." In fact, we were so excited to see a group of kids tortured by Death and shuffle off this mortal coil in the most horrifying of ways, that we made a list of five of the most hair-raising Death teasers in the new trailer.

This time around, a group of suspension bridge collapse survivors have to tango with the Grim Reaper, and as usual, they won't have an easy time of it. Between the eye gore and sharp things that want to slice and dice, it's not looking pretty. Check out the massacre after the jump.

In "Harry Potter" mythology, today (May 2) marks the 13th anniversary of The Battle of Hogwarts, the historic day where the forces of good and evil collided and fought for the fate of magic-users and muggles everywhere.

It's a bittersweet occasion for several reasons. On the one hand, the Battle of Hogwarts — spoiler alert if you haven't read the books — marked the end of He Who Must Not Be Named's reign. It was also a fantastic reading experience for "Potter" fans. But even though our heroes emerged victorious, the Battle of Hogwarts claimed the lives of several fan-favorite characters as well, adding no small amount of tragedy to the otherwise triumphant day.

We're honoring the fallen "Potter" heroes who died during the Battle of Hogwarts after the jump — and though it should go without saying, there are spoilers ahead.

Despite any reservations you may have had, you gotta admit: that trailer for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" looks frakkin' good.

Early footage from the film already had us excited for this next installment in the "Transformers" series, but now we have an even better sense of where the movie's headed. And since we've watched the video at least a dozen times since it premiered last night, we figured we'd break down for you guys exactly why you should be looking forward to this flick come July 1.


Frances McDormand getting in on the conspiracy? Check. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley keeping up with the boys? Check. A whole lot of robots destroying a city and beating the crap out of each other? Check and check. Click on after the jump to see our favorite parts of this trailer.

Oh my goodness, let's talk about that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" trailer.

First of all, were we right or were we right when we guessed what would make it into the final trailer? What we didn't allow ourselves the glimmer of hope of anticipating, though, was just how fantastically Warner Bros. would nail what we so desperately wanted to see. The trailer was ripe full of great scenes like Snape's flashbacks (of Lily especially), the battle at Hogwarts and all our favorite characters like Tonks and Molly Weasley that we haven't seen in far too long. Epic would be an understatement in describing this one.

After the jump, we take a look at our favorite moments from the trailer that we have watched over and over again since its premiere.

The fifth installment of the torque and testosterone-fueled “Fast and Furious” franchise – “Fast Five” – throttles into theaters this Friday, and the Vin Diesel-fronted vehicle promises to be the most fun you’ve had at the movies so far this year, as evidenced by the clip we teased you with last week.

Though it’s thoroughly badass, we couldn’t help but wonder if the bank vault heist we showcased is physically feasible under any circumstances, so we sent the video along to Phil Schewe, Chief Science Writer and spokesman for the American Institute of Physics. His thoughts about the Plausibility Factor of Vin and Paul Walker’s vault-toting plight? In a word: impossible. But does the suspension of disbelief make for massively fun cinema? Absolutely!

Phil’s play-by-play of the science behind the sequence is pretty entertaining stuff – so geek out with us, if you’re so inclined, and check what he had to say!
