Forget romance—the month of love is getting a serious taste of macho action courtesy of a few upcoming re-releases.
First up is the 3-D debut of '80s classic "Top Gun"—the airborne movie that put Tom Cruise on the action-star pedestal and grossed more than $350 million worldwide. And to rekindle your need for speed, Paramount has unveiled a new trailer for the six-day event, set to happen during the week (between February 8 and February 13) leading up to Valentine's Day. Following its run in IMAX theaters, "Top Gun" will hit stores on Blu-ray 3-D/2-D on February 19.
Buckle up, because the first trailer for "Olympus Has Fallen" is about to take you on one wild ride. If you like Gerard Butler as an action hero, Morgan Freeman as a president and watching the White House get blown up, then this is likely the right movie for you.
The trailer comes courtesy of Apple, and it can be watched after the jump. In many ways, the film feels like "Die Hard" meets the POTUS, and that's definitely not a bad thing. Butler plays the John McClane role as a Special Service agent discharged from the president's duty after the First Lady gets killed in a car accident. He ends up being the only one left standing in the White House after terrorists capture the president and the United States capitol is on lockdown.

There's no denying that the red-band trailer for Fede Alverez's "Evil Dead" reboot was really, really gross. Like the actual vomit-inducing kind of gross. And while fans of the original Sam Raimi trilogy were rejoicing at the horrific spectacle of it all, it the rest of us were struggling to, well, stay tuned.
So thankfully, to tone down the shock (and spoiler-y) factor, the studio has just released a friendlier, green band trailer. It plays out with the same storyline of a group of doomed campers in a remote cabin in the woods, but does so without all of the disturbing (and generally puke-y) imagery. Phew!
I don't know about you guys, but when it comes to stars like Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, and Hugh Jackman, we expect model behavior. In this exclusive (and very NSFW) footage from "Movie 43," the raunchy anthology comedy opening in theaters on January 25, those actors, along with many other A-listers, are acting out in ways we personally don't care to discuss on this wholesome blog. (But we will anyway.)
Topics up for discussion in the trailer include:
1. Which Golden Girl Emma Stone most resembles. (Hint: It's not Dorothy.)
2. What kind of guys Liev Schreiber would be into, you know, if he was into dudes.
3. What Josh Duhamel's cat—it's a cartoon cat—is doing when he's not looking. (Prepare to see something you cannot unsee.)
See, we told you things were going to get weird.
"Movie 43" opens in theaters on January 25.
Remember back when you were younger, and you could just rip off a restaurant to finance you spring break trip? Those were simpler times.
Oh, you never did that? We must have been thinking of the first trailer from "Spring Breakers," the tripped out party-and-crime-fest starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and James Franco.
MTV News debuted the trailer for the Harmony Korine movie, which tells the story of four college students who find themselves in trouble when they align with a cornrowed criminal named Alien (Franco).
Check out the exclusive trailer above, and you can also catch it tonight on MTV.

It's never too early for a little spring break, and this Thursday, you're going to go on one hell of a trip. That's when MTV News will be exclusively premiering the trailer for "Spring Breakers," the festival hit staring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and James Franco.
This Thursday at 7 a.m. ET, the very first trailer for "Spring Breakers" will debut exclusively on MTV.com. Later that day, the preview will make its way to primetime for its broadcast premiere on MTV.
See what the cast had to say about the movie after the jump!
When you call a movie the "last" or the "final" of something, you'd expect there to be nothing after it, yet we live in a world with 20 "Final Fantasy" games. (This frightening trend was hilariously brought to light by Vulture yesterday.) Well, you can now add "The Last Exorcism: Part II" to the list.
The shockingly limber Ashley Bell is back once again to get possessed by a demon for the final time. Gone is the documentary film footage, replaced by good old-fashioned movie cameras, and this time, Nell Sweetzer, Bell's character from the first film, is hiding out in New Orleans—a city with no connection to the supernatural—to hopefully escape her past.
Find out how that's working out for her after the jump!

We hope you're not suffering from Guillermo del Toro fatigue yet (like that's even possible), because we're about to dish out a serious helping of "Pacific Rim" awesomeness.
After letting slip a few, you know, major statements regarding "Star Wars: Episode 7" and "At The Mountains of Madness" while doing press for his upcoming film, "Mama," the director finished Monday off by treating fans to a brand new trailer (via io9) for his monsters-versus-robots flick at the International Consumer Electrics Show in Las Vegas. If you're easily worn by back-to-back trailers, trust us—this one isn't just another carbon copy of the first preview.
For Arnold Schwarzenegger to outright declare that he's officially "back," there are a few things that we need to see before we believe anything.
In his heyday, Schwarzenegger made the bloodiest, funniest, and most insane action movies readily available on cable. If the Terminator is truly back, we'd expect at least a little blood and R-rated violence from "The Last Stand," his supposed big return.
That's why we were pleased to see that Yahoo! Movies has dropped a short NSFW trailer that has more of the Arnie we're used to.

The latest trailer for "Evil Dead" brings us back to one of the most basic of human instincts. If something is super gross, we're going to keep looking, and it's going to be awesome.
That's the feeling we're left with after the new preview for the Sam Raimi-produced return to the cabin in the woods. Good lord is it gross, but eff you if you think we're not going to finish it.
