True Detective Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson
Bubblin' up out of the bayou come three more teasers for HBO's January series “True Detective," and we are pretty darn excited for this show right here. Two of the clips will introduce you to our leading men: Detectives Cohle (Matthew McConaughey, in the glorious middle of a spectacular career resurrection, as we recently noted) and Hart (Woody Harrelson, in no need whatsoever of a resurrection, thank you very much) as, respectively, a whiskery old misanthrope and “a regular guy with a big-ass dick.”

With a fresh series order, and production now underway, FX isn't wasting a moment in getting the buzz building for Guillermo Del Toro's "The Strain." And while it doesn't feature any cast members, this first teaser for the show is still pretty damn creepy.

Noah trailer
While variations of the Noah myth can be found in a handful of faiths, we'd reckon that over in Japan it might not be as familiar as it might be in the West. But no matter, a movie about the end of the world is still a movie about the end of the world, and the waters still rise in this new international spot for "Noah."

While it won't be in the Oscar mix both because it won't be ready and for the fact that it's, as George Clooney calls it, "a commercial, non-cynical piece of entertainment," "Monuments Men" still has the kind of star power to attract a red carpet. Indeed, it will be making its international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in just a couple of months. And with that in mind, a brand new overseas trailer has arrived.

Beauty And The Beast Lea Seydoux
Well, whatever expectations you might have had about Christophe Gans, the director behind "Brotherhood of the Wolf" and "Silent Hill," tackling "Beauty And The Beast," prepare to have them underwhelmed. Falling somewhere between family friendly and ordinarily fantastical, this very expensive looking new version lacks a bit of bite.

It takes a certain kind of person to gather up a handful of camels, head out into the middle of the Australian outback, miles from civilization, and start walking, but that's just what Robyn Davidson did and her story is chronicled in "Tracks," the latest from director John Curran (“We Don’t Live Here Anymore,” “The Painted Veil”). And with Mia Wasikowska in the lead role, perhaps it shouldn't surprise you that this is one will be worth watching.

The Pilgrims might have sailed over on the Mayflower, but that was nothing to compared to what Noah went through (if you really believe the Earth was flooded and a man, his family and a lot animals rode it out on an ark). Whether real or metaphor, the story is tailor-made for spectacle and Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" will attempt to tell it next spring.

Cymbeline Ed Harris Milla Jovovich Anton Yelchin
Dirty cops, drug dealing biker gangs.... Now this is Shakespeare. Ethan Hawke has reteamed with his "Hamlet" director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary take on "Cymbeline" and they are moving fast. Lensing only went down in August, yet a trailer has emerged online already and it certainly throws any preconceived notions of the Bard out the window.

Welcome To The Jungle Jean-Claude Van Damme
By now you’ve likely seen the splits-tastic Jean-Claude Van Damme Volvo spot and the just-as-amusing Channing Tatum parody that it inspired. However, one matter that may have come up while watching is simply Van Damme’s varied cinematic output. Recently, “JCVD” and “Universal Soldier: Regeneration” have shown a performer willing to reach for some fantastically bizarre, self-aware moments, but now a new film hopes to take that self-parody to a new level, and we’ve got the trailer and a few clips to gauge its early promise.

With special effects and 3D these days mostly controlled by many mouseclicks and keystrokes, the craft of moviemaking can go underappreciated. But the folks at Laika are making sure everyone knows that a lot of work went into their upcoming "The Boxtrolls."
