One way that low-budget thrillers have dealt with the constraints of having less money than their competitors is to keep the action contained to a single room. There was "Phone Booth," then "Buried," and even "ATM." But "Freezer" might take the cake.

"Freezer," as you might imagine, is about a man who is trapped in a bathroom. Okay, we're lying. He's obviously trapped inside a freezer.

But that's just the start of this absurd trailer, which stars Dylan McDermott. Please watch the above preview on the promise that you will watch nothing better today*.

If you'd like to watch 88 more minutes of Dylan McDermott trapped inside a cooling unit, "Freezer" hits VOD, Blu-Ray and DVD on January 21st.

*Not a guarantee.

The new trailer for "Muppets Most Wanted," the latest film from the felt troupe of performs gives us a better idea of what to expect when it hits theaters next year, in terms of story, cameos, and songs.

"Muppets Most Wanted" is bringing back most of the elements that made 2011's "The Muppets" the group's first hit in years. Bret McKenzie is back with new songs after winning an Oscar for "Man or Muppet" and so is director James Bobin and co-writer Nick Stoller.

This time around, the story is in the style of a classic Muppets caper. The world's most notorious jewel thief bares a striking resemblance to Kermit the Frog, and he devises a plan to switch places with the lovable ringleader. Once the trade takes place, the rest of the gang has to figure out the plot before Kermit spends too much time in prison.

"Muppets Most Wanted" opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.

After many, many unofficial looks at Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical epic, "Noah," our first legitimate preview of the movie may be short, but we'll take it.

The preview comes courtesy of "Entertainment Tonight" (via The Film Stage), who debuted a clip of the trailer, which is supposed to go online at some point today.

The quick look has everything we expect from a Aronofsky-directed bible epic. There's compelling imagery that's often massive (global even) in scale, with just a few peeks at the cast which includes Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and Emma Watson.

We'll post the trailer for you over at MTV News as soon as it hits!

In the years since "Taken" established him as an older action star, Liam Neeson's yearly forays into the genre have gotten sillier and sillier.

For 2014, he's the only man on a NON-STOP flight from New York to London that can stop a madman from killing every passenger on board. Neeson plays an air marshal who receives a text message claiming that one person will die every 20 minutes until a ransom is wired to a bank account.

The first trailer plays out pretty much like you'd expect, expect with a lot of shots of Julianne Moore. (Mark her down as our top suspect.) We'll definitely give it credit for ending with a near zero-G shot of Neeson grabbing a gun out of midair. That's dope.

"Non-Stop" opens in theaters on February 28, 2014.

Frankenstein

By Alex Zalben

The first trailer for "I, Frankenstein" has hit the Internet, and it is AMAZING. From the producers of the "Underworld" series, "I, Frankenstein" casts Aaron Eckhart as the titular monster, wandering the world before getting embroiled in what looks like a battle between demons and angels, or possibly Frankensteins and Gargoyles.

The movie is written and directed by Stuart Beattie, based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux (who previously appeared in – and created - the "Underworld" series), and also stars Bill Nighy and Yvonne Strahovski.

Point being, January can't get here soon enough. So in celebration of this momentous event, we made a few posters for the movie – and even provided a blank one, so you can make your own!

So maybe "Machete Kills" isn't getting the best reviews. The sequel to the movie based on a fake trailer in "Grindhouse" never promised to be high-class cinema, so we weren't exactly expecting anything different.

That being said, even if the movie isn't worth running out to theaters to see right away when it opens on October 11, the new 3-D trailer for "Machete Kills" is actually pretty cool.

We won't spoil the surprise for you, but the trailer has better 3-D effects than you might be expecting.

"Machete Kills" opens in theaters on October 11.

Happy New "Hobbit" Trailer Day!

Frankly, these days don't happen enough, but when they do they're always great at rousing our interest in the "Lord of the Rings" prequel trilogy from Peter Jackson and company. The latest trailer even gives us what the hordes on Tumblr have been dying for: a quick listen to Benedict Cumberbatch voicing Smaug the dragon!

The lengthy trailer is our best look yet at the second installment, which is only two months and two weeks away. (Yes, we're counting. What's it to you?) How are you feeling about "The Desolation of Smaug"? If you're old enough to remember 2002, how does this compare to your anticipation for "The Two Towers"?

Take a look at the new trailer, along with four more new banners, after the jump! And let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on Twitter.

hr_The_Hobbit-_The_Desolation_of_Smaug_14

It's been almost four months since the first trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" appeared before our eyes, and since then the summer movie season distracted us from the fact that the second installment of Peter Jackson's prequel trilogy was quickly approaching.

And here we are, nearly two months away from "The Desolation of Smaug," and it's time to get excited for a return trip to Middle-earth. The middle portion of J.R.R. Tolkien contains some of the book's most iconic imagery, including the spiders of Mirkwood Forest and Smaug's cave of gold. There's also Gandalf's side story, which can play out at any speed Jackson and his writers desire.

We'll get another look at the second installment tomorrow, when the second trailer debuts at 9 a.m. ET. MTV News will have the trailer as soon as it goes live, so stick right here. Until then, enjoy the new banner, which teases trouble in the woods for Bilbo and the gang.

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens on December 13.

Disney has started to find its footing again in the animation world, even without the help of Pixar. Both "Tangled" and "Wreck-It Ralph" captured some of the magic of the old-school Disney cartoons that you remember growing up with.

"Tangled," in particular, put Disney back in the business of princess musicals, their old bread and butter, and their new film, "Frozen," looks to continue that trend with another single-adjective-as-a-title movie.

The new trailer for "Frozen" just debuted over at Yahoo! Movies and fleshes out the story of Anna and the frosty kingdom of Arendelle.

need-for-speed-aaron-paul1

Today, we saw the debut of the first trailer for "Need for Speed," what will hopefully be Aaron Paul's big breakout into movie stardom. As happy we are to see Paul crossing over post "Breaking Bad," it's going to be hard for us to ever let go of Jesse Pinkman.

That being said, it's also difficult to watch the trailer for "Need for Speed" and not imagine Jesse Pinkman joining a cross-country street race, especially when Paul is making a lot of the same agonized faces we've seen in this past season of "Breaking Bad."

There are so many familiar expressions that we decided to rank them from least- to most-Jesse Pinkman.
