As far as movies are concerned, the transition from December to January is the equivalent of looking down that beautiful river you're tubing and seeing a 100-foot waterfall. We've been enjoying the fun-in-the-sun times of awards season, but soon the landscape will change... drastically.
To find out what the first four weeks of 2013 hold in store for you, we've rounded up the trailer for each major release, so that you can make the best of the wintry month and maybe even have some fun at the movies.

Remember all of that controversy last year surrounding the choice of People's Sexiest Man Alive? The title went to (then) surprisingly inactive Bradley Cooper, who was between movies and generally not as universally loved as the cover model usually is, instead of the obvious choice Ryan Gosling.
The public unrest over the snub was enough to cause some minor picketing outside of the Time Inc. building in New York City, but finally, the world may have the rematch they're hoping for.
Derek Cianfrance is following up his indie drama "Blue Valentine" with the generational crime drama "The Place Beyond the Pines," which stars Gosling as a bank robbing stunt bike rider and Cooper as the cop chasing after him.

Forget "World War Z" and the slew of other stylish zombie-ridden films slated for next year, because Seth Rogen and company are busting out with their own post-apocalyptic adventure, and this one promises what the others don't — tons of laughs and really random celebrity cameos.
For their directorial debut, "This is the End," Rogen and Evan Goldberg — both of whom have had a hand in writing and/or producing a string of cult comedies, including "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express" — rounded up a few friends (of the funny, famous, actor variety, of course) to capture their would-be struggle for survival during the end of all days.
Check out a red-band first look at "This is the End" below! (Warning: not safe for work.)

One look at Steve Carell's plasticky mullet for "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" was quite the tease on its own, but now we've got the movie's first trailer to get us in on all the tacky Vegas action — and by "action," we're referring to what looks to be the ultimate face-off between our two favorite Steves (Carell and Buscemi) and a very Criss-Angel-inpsired Jim Carrey.

While you were saying your goodbyes to "Jersey Shore" tonight, you may have caught a glimpse of some serious blockbuster potential during the commercial break.
In a set-up worthy of James Bond himself, the preview starts things dark. Two thugs look on as our hero is held captive, chained upright. A bald man, who looks distinctly like the roommate from "Bridesmaids," walks in teasing her, commanding her to tell him when the MTV Movie Awards are. Will she give in? Will she tell? Why does she look a lot like Rebel Wilson, the breakout star from "Pitch Perfect."
That's because she's the star of the MTV Movie Awards.
Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock may not be the most obvious duo for a buddy cop movie, but both actresses have some law enforcement experience.
Bullock made two (yes, two) "Miss Congeniality" movies, where she played an FBI agent, and McCarthy got all hot on an air marshal in her Oscar-nominated role in "Bridesmaids."
Now the two actresses are teaming up for the newest movie from the director of "Bridesmaids," Paul Feig. In "The Heat," both McCarthy and Bullock play officers of the law, tasked with bringing down a drug lord.

When you read "The Great Gatsby" in high school did you imagine Kanye and Jay-Z playing in the background? Probably not.
But for his new 3-D adaptation, that's exactly what Baz Luhrmann is going for. The highly stylized take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel of melancholy in the 20s got a wildly splashy new trailer, loaded with much more dread than the first celebratory teaser.

The Smurfs have returned, and this time they're getting naughty.
The first trailer for "The Smurfs 2" has hit the web, and shows the introduction of new, bad creatures called the Naughties. Hank Azaria's Gargamel is back and trying to defeat the Smurfs, so he's decided to create his own small, Smurf-like creations to take them down. The Naughties, voiced by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove, seem like they're able to do the unthinkable: Make Smurfette go bad.

We've been waiting patiently since last week, when a shortened teaser for the J.J. Abrams sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness" dropped online, for the longer version to debut in front of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Well that came and went, but those of us online didn't have the full "Trek" goods in front of us.
Thankfully, the full teaser, which clocks in at nearly one minute longer, has at last debuted, bringing a bunch of new footage with it, including some seriously ominous looks at the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
Head over to MTV News to read a full write-up and watch the teaser now!
Back in July during San Diego Comic-Con, when thousands of fans started rolling on the ground and speaking in tongues about the robots punching monsters, the general public wasn't privy to the awesomeness that is Guillermo del Toro's "Pacifc Rim."
