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.

We're still a few months away from seeing if Johnny Depp can pull off what few actors have in the last decade or so, selling a big-budget, potential blockbuster western.
Of course, "The Lone Ranger" isn't exactly a typical western by any measure, considering that the main character as seemingly returned from the dead to fight for the causes of justice.
The newest preview features more action, giving us a better idea of how much of the Old West shenanigans will be bolstered with CGI. (It seems like a lot from the looks of that train sequence.) We'll reserve our judgement however for July 3, when "The Lone Ranger" hits theaters.
The latest step of the "Great Gatsby" marketing campaign seems to be to release trailers that feature the various awesome songs on the movie's soundtrack, and we're totally okay with that. We already got one featuring Beyonce and Florence + the Machine, and now a new teaser has been released featuring Fergie.
The trailer comes courtesy of NewNowNext, which awarded Fergie the Always Next Forever Now award at its recent awards show. The hip beat of the song featured here goes along with director Baz Luhrmann's frenetic filmmaking style, and we love the irony in the line "a little party never killed nobody."
