Last Vegas

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.

Here's a great way to start off your Thursday. The first NSFW trailer for "V/H/S/2," the sequel to the found footage anthology that scared the crap out of us last year, just dropped over at Yahoo! Movies. What the preview emphasizes—aside from how freaking scary this thing looks—is the serious talent they've lined up to direct segments for the second go around.

For the sequel, you'll see found footage short films from the directors of "The Raid: Redemption," upcoming horror flick "You're Next," "Hobo With a Shotgun," and "The Blair Witch Project."

The consensus coming out of Sundance this year was that "V/H/S/2," then called "S-V/H/S," is much scarier than its predecessor and uses the found footage format to greater effect.

We'll find out when "V/H/S/2" hits VOD on June 6 and theaters on July 12.

A short teaser for "Riddick," the third film staring Vin Diesel as the night vision badass from title, debuted earlier this year, but now the very first trailer has premiered on YouTube.

The trailer clues us in on the story this time around. A group of bounty hunters have shown up to collect Riddick's head, but he doesn't like that. The tone seems closer to "Pitch Black," especially when it comes to the host of monsters that show up in the trailer.

Gravity

After what has literally been years of waiting, the trailer for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" has arrived. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, is a terrifying sci-fi epic that Guillermo del Toro has promised will blow our minds, and now we can see why.

The trailer for "Gravity" goes light on the plot and heavy on the visual splendor. "Gravity" tells the story of Bullock's Dr. Ryan Stone and Clooney's astronaut Matt Kowalsky after their space ship gets destroyed and they get stranded out in space. Cuaron seems to have intentionally shot those scenes of destruction to be terrifying, but nothing is more chilling here than the final shot of Stone drifting alone out in space. Check out the trailer below.

The Worlds End

With "The World's End," Edgar Wright brings the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, a series of films starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, to a close. The first UK trailer for the final installment just debuted over at MSN UK, and it already looks like the final leg of the trilogy could live up to the high standard set by "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz."

"The World's End" tells the story of five friends on a mission: to complete the 12-bar pub crawl that they failed to finish in their youth. Things have changed in the lives of the chums, but Pegg's Gary is determined to get the band back together. What he wasn't expecting what the pub crawl's location to change so much as well.

Ender's Game

Few fan groups can claim to have waited to see a beloved story make the jump to big screen longer than the devoted followers of "Ender's Game." The 1985 book seems like obvious blockbuster material, but "Ender's Game" is only now seeing a film adaptation, one that will hit theaters not too far from now.

This Tuesday (May 7) at 4 p.m. ET, fans will see part of that dream realized when the first trailer for "Ender's Game" debuts during a live Google Hangout with the star Asa Butterfield, director Gavin Hood, and producer Bob Orci. Butterfield and his co-star, Harrison Ford, filmed a teaser for the Hangout, which features the very first public footage from "Ender's Game."

White House Down

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.

Violet and Daisy

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.

Star Trek

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.

You can see all three previews after the jump!
