Veronica Mars
So, you paid for this, guys. After a hotly publicized, debated and massively successful Kickstarter campaign, "Veronica Mars" has gone from beloved former TV show to fan-enabled movie, and now the first peek of what everyone put their hard earned toward is here.

dane dehaan, Metallica: through the never
No matter what you might think of their music now (pretty tepid), there's no denying that Metallica have always thought big and loud. And while at first glance the idea of them doing a 3D concert movie might seem a bit odd, it actually does fit their longtime goal of illustrating bold visions through their music. But does "Metallica: Through The Never" actually look good?

If you had said a few years ago that one of the biggest ratings behemoths on cable would be a series about zombies based on a comic book, people would have said you were crazy. But defying the odds, creative shakeups and some dips in quality, "The Walking Dead" has lurched into being one of the biggest things on TV. It's certainly a jewel in the AMC crown and the fourth season is looming, and as a treat to those in San Diego -- or for those of us sitting comfortably at home -- the network has dropped a sprawling four-minute trailer for the new season.

Riddick
BROS! Gotta admit, this summer has been a bit of bummer. 'Fast 6' was like total sex, but that was like forever ago. My girl broke up with me, I've got that Mr. Sandusky for summer school English (that dude needs to get off my jock), so I've mostly been chillin' at my Moms. Nah, I didn't see any movies because, like, "Man Of Steel"? I ain't watchin' no Man In Tights. "Pacific Rim"? I'd prefer Pacific Trim, nah mean? But I got some fuckin' great news dudes -- VIN IS BACK.

So...generous promotion or simply showing every good moment of a movie before it's due in theatres? We'll let you guys decide, but we're leaning toward the latter, because this brand new, four-and-a-half-minute red band trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" hardly leaves any surprises for when the the flick drops next month.

As The Film Stage notes, marketing can be exhausting. And with Comic-Con in full swing, the deluge of material from the conference floor in San Diego can seem pretty crass. Essentially, the whole shindig is one big excuse for studios to dump all kinds of swag both to those roaming around the halls of the massive nerd complex, and online, where character posters galore and the like scream at your eyeballs for attention. So, a lengthy trailer that actually shows footage and isn't cluttered up by voiceover and text and teases goes down like a much needed glass of water in the desert.

mandela, long walk to freedom
Listen, we know you have to sell this intense drama about the struggle to end apartheid to a mass audience. But can we call a moratorium on using "Wavin' Flag" by K'naan for...well, anything...for about a decade? The official song for the 2010 World Cup (yes, which was held in South Africa, hence relevance) has been played to death and lost any innocence and impact it had. At least for now. Okay, with that off our chest, here's the new trailer for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom."

Perhaps speaking to the dearth of roles for older actors, or the need for a paycheck, this morning Michael Douglas was honored for his turn in "Behind The Candelabra" with an Emmy nomination. And now this afternoon comes the trailer for "Last Vegas," another movie set in the Nevada playground that finds him hamming it up alongside Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline in a premise that is basically "The Hangover-but-with-old-people."

It might not be much, but these two new teasers for some highly anticipated films should get two different audiences very excited.

We really don't get racing at all. Watching a bunch of cars drive around a track for hours on end? Not really our bag, and Universal knows that if they want the '70s-set, racing drama "Rush" to reach an audience beyond Sunday afternoon couch potatoes, they're gonna have to sell this thing. So why not introduce Chris Hemworth's lead character James Hunt like smoldering, sexy, risk-taking hunk? And that's exactly what they do.
