The second trailer for the second "White House in peril" movie, "White House Down," just premiered over at Yahoo! Movies, and unlike the first ominous preview, this actually plays to Channing Tatum's comedic chops and star power.
The trailer introduces us to Tatum's wannabe Secret Service agent, John Cale, just a normal guy who brings his daughter along to a job interview at the White House. Though the interview doesn't go as planned, a perfectly timed terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. gives John the opportunity to go full-on John McClane. Not only will he have to save his daughter, who has been taken hostage by the invading terrorists, but also protect the prez, played by Jamie Foxx.

The trailer for Geoffrey Fletcher's upcoming movie "Violet & Daisy" has arrived, and it definitely is not what we were expecting. The flick stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins who love their line of work but are drawn into a hit they don't quite understand and quickly get in over their heads. It seems like a simple enough premise, but the trailer reveals that the movie could actually be much more.
First of all, it's a whole lot funnier than the story would lead one to believe. There's a certain tongue-in-cheek quality to the trailer that is intriguing, but it's unclear if that's indicative of the movie as a whole or just the marketing. Hopefully it's the latter, as one of the main plot points in "Violet & Daisy" is that the girls take on a hit so they can have enough money to buy dresses.
This may be an astonishing fact to some of the "Star Trek" fans who have waited years upon years to see a follow-up to J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot, but "Star Trek Into Darkness" arrives in theaters this month. We're almost two weeks away from finding out who John Harrison is for crying out loud!
Just in case you haven't had your fill of "Star Trek Into Darkness" promotional material by now, there are two new TV spots and a special Uhura-centric preview that gives us our first look at the Abrams-ified Klingons without their masks on.
Before making three films in positioned squarely in the stoner comedy genre, director David Gordon Green specialized in small, idiosyncratic movies like "George Washington" and "All the Real Girls."
His latest film, "Prince Avalanche," which stars Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd, is Green's attempt to strip away the excess of his last three theatrical efforts and get back to the basics of what he likes to do.
The first trailer for "Prince Avalanche" gives you a sense of the humor at work in the Sundance hit and makes us incredibly excited for the film's release on August 9.

A movie like "Monsters University" pretty much explains itself. It's about monsters, the Pixar creations from "Monsters Inc." to be specific, at college. It seems like it would be simple enough, but the actual story for "Monsters University" has mostly been kept from us until a new trailer debuted today over at Yahoo! Movies.
As you have probably put together by now, "Monsters University" follows Sulley and Mike to college, where they meet for the first time, but what we didn't know was that they would be competing scare games in order to stay in school.
The stakes will be high, but we have a feeling that we know how it all turns out. Find out when "Monsters University" opens on June 21.
With the awesomeness of summer movies just a few weeks aways, we're bracing ourselves for some of the year's biggest blockbusters, and nothing has captured our excitement for the season quite like this mash-up from Movies.com.
The folks over there cut together the trailers for all the May-to-August movies that you're probably looking forward to, and if that didn't sound epic enough, they use Hans Zimmer's outstanding "Man of Steel" score to back the entire thing.
Check out the trailer after the jump and start to get excited for the next four months.
A Shakespearean play through the lens of Joss Whedon will alway have our support, but the first U.S. trailer for the indie production didn't quite give us our fill on the Bard's dialogue spoken by "Buffy" alums.
So leave it to the British to give us the Shakespeare that we so crave with their edition of the trailer for "Much Ado About Nothing." If you haven't seen a production of the 400 year old play, this preview will give you a better idea of the story that you should have learned in high school.
Take a look after the jump!
"Much Ado About Nothing" opens in theaters on June 7.
When Keanu Reeves directs a movie called "Man of Tai Chi," you better believe it's going to come loaded with tai chi. Reeves debuted the first trailer for his directorial debut at the Beijing International Film Festival, and the teaser for his martial arts epic comes heavy on the awesome action sequences and light on the plot.
It makes sense that this movie will have excellent action choreography and will show off Reeves' love of tai chi. Tiger Hu Chen, a martial arts trainer on "The Matrix" trilogy, stars in the movie with legendary action choreographer Yuen Woo-ping designing the moves. As they proved in the Wachowski movies, they are definitely experts in creating impressive action sequences. Reeves, of course, both directs and stars in the movie.
For Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn's next movie together after "Drive," you'd expect a similar dream-like, violent yarn to match their first collaboration. You may not have been expecting the seriously tripped-out trailer for "Only God Forgives" that popped up a few weeks back.
Now, after an official Cannes line-up announced the duo's return to the festival, two new international (and NSFW) trailers have gone online (via The Playlist), and they give you more of the same but with some extra insight into the story of revenge and Thai boxing.
Check out the trailer and an animated poster after the jump!
