When your pitch for a movie is "Die Hard in the White House," it communicates pretty well what we can expect. There's going to be a lone, witty hero in a tank top who has to beat the odds to save the day, expect this time the president will be involved.
That's what we've seen so far from "White House Down," a new action movie starring Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum as John McClane John Cale. (Yes, you can spell "John Cale" but rearranging letters and deleting three of them from "John McClane.")
But now a new four-minute trailer is showing us just how "Die Hard"-y "White House Down" will be. Hint: There's a talkative, eccentric computer wiz working for the terrorists. Check it out after the jump!
Liam Hemsworth is striking out on his own after riding the coattails of Miley Cyrus and Katniss Everdeen for a while with the new thriller "Paranoia."
The film, based on the book of the same name by Joseph Finder, tells the story of a down-on-his-luck kid from Brooklyn, who is just looking for his chance to make it big and provide for his ailing dad. That's when the totally trustworthy Gary Oldman comes along with an offer.
Oldman wants Hemsworth to infiltrate his competition, played by Harrison Ford, and the exec bankrolls a "Pretty Woman"-style makeover for his new protege, which basically amounts to him putting on a suit. You can barely recognize him! Right, Amber Heard?
Since "Insidious," director James Wan has stepped up his game and consistently scared the crap out of us. There was that Darth Maul demon from the surprise 2010 hit. We now expect a phantom clap every time we go down into the basement, thanks to the "Conjuring" trailer. And then there's this new thing, the trailer for "Insidious: Chapter 2."
The trailer for the sequel (via iTunes) shows us that things are picking up right where they left off with the Lambert family, whose son made friends with Iron Man in the mean time.
The preview itself has everything you've come to expect from the series: long takes that pay off with scares, creepy old ladies in long dresses, and Patrick Wilson. (What, we like the guy, ok?)

Even though he was kind enough to grace us with an album this year, Justin Timberlake is still focusing a lot of his effort on acting. Aside from "Inside Llewyn Davis," the latest film from the Coen Brothers, Timberlake has the starring role in "Runner Runner," a gambling thriller that also stars Jean Ralphio from "Parks and Recreation" (Ben Schwartz). Oh, and Ben Affleck as an evil crime boss.
UPDATE: Full trailer without "ET" people.
The first look at "Runner Runner" debuted last night on "Entertainment Tonight," which is only pertinent because the airhead anchors keep interrupting when I just want to watch Ben Affleck feed a guy to alligators, dammit!
Aubrey Plaza is looking to experiment before she heads to college in the new NSFW trailer for the coming of age comedy "The To Do List," which debuted last night.
The red band trailer dives deeper into the premise, which casts Plaza as the goody-goody straight-A student that fears heading to college without any sexual experience. To get ready for the next four years of her life, she decides to lose her virginity to the hot guy working at the pool, played by Scott Porter of "Friday Night Lights."
The preview shows a clever movie that looks like a fun flip on your typical virginity comedy. Check out the trailer above and get ready for "The To Do List," which opens in theaters on July 26.
Lifetime network movies have never promised quality — or even competent — filmmaking, and that's fine. Who cares? They're usually incredibly entertaining. (Do yourself a favor and watch "Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life" starring Jeremy Sumpter aka J.D. McCoy from "Friday Night Lights." It's about addiction to internet porn, and it's amazing.) But the latest effort from the channel for your mom has some actual talent behind it.
"The Anne Nicole Story" may look like your typical Lifetime fare, but this doomed celebrity biopic is helmed by Mary Harron, who directed Christian Bale in his career-best performance in "American Psycho."
With the release Elijah Wood's first-person horror film "Maniac" only a month away, a new trailer for the project has premiered. It sets the mood of the story without giving too much of the plot away, and teases the type of scares the movie will deliver.
"Maniac" follows Wood as the "withdrawn owner of a mannequin store" whose urge to kill increases when he meets a young artist named Anna, played by Nora Arnezeder. The remake of the 1980 film of the same name already premiered at Cannes in 2012 and made the rounds in Europe earlier this year. It's earned generally positive reviews, and will be given a limited release in the US on June 21 and will also be released via VOD.
Sometimes it takes an enormous drug deal to bring a family together.That's the premise of "We're The Millers," a new comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston as the patriarch and matriarch of a fake family assembled to smuggle a large amount of marijuana back into the United States.
The first NSFW red band trailer for the "We're the Millers" just dropped, and it already looks like one of the more promising comedies scheduled to hit theaters this summer. Sudeikis and Aniston are likely looking to repeat their suggest from "Horrible Bosses," and the raunchy trailer looks like it should please audiences craving some R-rated fun.

The first US trailer for Edgar Wright's "The World's End" fills us in a little more on what to expect from the final installment in the Three Flavour Cornetto Trilogy, which also included "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz." And that is robots, apparently.
The new preview (via Yahoo! Movies) plays out like the several we've seen from the UK. A group of friends reunite after years apart to complete the 12-bar pub crawl that they couldn't finish in their younger years. The group is led by a greasy-looking Simon Pegg, and includes Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddy Marsan.
The biggest revelation from this new trailer is that it's robots that have taken over the gang's hometown. Earlier trailers have shown the invaders with light pouring from their eyes and mouths, but what at first looked like aliens are identified as robots in the US trailer.
Take a look at the first US trailer for "The World's End" after the jump!
"The World's End" opens in theaters on August 23.

The teaser trailer for "Last Vegas" has it right when it touts that the movie is "going to be legendary." The film brings together esteemed actors Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline in a "The Hangover"-style romp set in Las Vegas.
Except, with a cast like this, "Last Vegas" could end up being significantly better than "The Hangover," despite all that movie's wonderful absurdities like hanging out with Mike Tyson's tiger or finding the wrong Doug. There's a scene in the "Last Vegas" trailer where Freeman is drunk on Vodka Red Bulls, and the result is kind of hilarious.
