Not much has changed since the first trailer for Tim Burton’s 9: this second trailer is still filled with suspense, amazing graphics and badass rag dolls; in other words, still awesome.

Sherlock Homes may be set in Victorian London, but with a wise-cracking Robert Downey, Jr., explosions aplenty and Jude Law as Watson, this trailer is thoroughly 21st century.

In the Loop brings The Office’s style of comedy to international politics, specifically satirizing the Iraq war with bumbling government officials and endless one liners; it hits theaters 7/24.

Movie Trailer: The Road

Movie Trailer: The Road

The Road finally gets a trailer, and just like the book it’s a doozie: the post-apocalyptic story seems overly focused on action, but Viggo Mortensen’s performance looks like a winner.

Mega Shark/Giant Octopus

Mega Shark/Giant Octopus

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus is a campy, low-budget horror flick with harbinger of hammy acting Lorenzo Lamas; we were sold the moment the shark ate the Golden Gate Bridge.

Just about every character Bill Murray has ever played, all on one shirt: Being Bill Murray depicts a party that is at the same time pure awesome and scary. Still, what about Bob?

WTWTA Kubricks

WTWTA Kubricks

This set of eight 2″ Where The Wild Things Are Kubrick figures are surprisingly good and will be out 10/09; the boy looks a bit off, but his 12″ RAH (Real Action Hero) is pretty slick.

Trailer #2: Public Enemies

Check your Tommy Guns, because if you liked the first Public Enemies trailer, this second trailer definitely has our hopes up for the best bank robber movie to come out in years.

Video: Tarantino Mixtape

Video: Tarantino Mixtape

NSFW: Eclectic Method shows off their epic remixing skills with the Tarantino Mixtape; true to his films, it’s a brilliant mix of violence, bad behavior and quirky dialogue. Thanks, Jake!

Trailer #2: G.I. Joe

Trailer #2: G.I. Joe

The plot for the G.I. Joe movie may yet be as silly as Serpentor, but this second trailer at least promises a whole crapload of Michael Bay-style awesomeness with action aplenty.

Wolverine: The Musical

Wolverine: The Musical

We never fancied Hugh the Broadway-type, but Wolverine: The Musical is pure gold, albeit way off-Broadway: “I’ll chop apart that redwood tree and slice the wings off of a bee…”

Trailer #2: Transformers 2

Trailer #2: Transformers 2

Say what you will about the plot, but nothing short of Unicron is going to stop us from watching Transformers 2 after this latest trailer; giant swirling blades of death at 2:15 FTW.

Fifth Element Stones

Fifth Element Stones

Handy for those occasions the Great Evil shows up for dinner, these Fifth Element Stones come from the awesome 1997 sci-fi film; unfortunately, Milla Jovovich is not included.

G-Force (Trailer 2)

G-Force (Trailer 2)

This latest trailer for Disney’s G-Force feels almost like a legitimate spy movie, with plenty of covert gadgets and Underworld’s Bill Nighy as arch villain; that is, until the fart jokes start.

Diamonds of Metro Valley

Diamonds of Metro Valley

With a gun-toting robo-lizard, a Mad Max-style car chase and hammy acting, The Diamonds of Metro Valley is so bad we have to watch it; the film will be completed in a few months.
