How would you like to see a movie about a quirky British man who travels through time by stepping into a seemingly small room? What if that movie also co-starred Bill Nighy? I know what you’re thinking, Dr. Who, right? Unless, of course, you read the title of this article, then you’re not thinking that at all. Regardless, this isn’t a movie about Time Lords; instead it’s a new romantic comedy from the director of “Love Actually” and “Pirate Radio.” Check out the first US trailer for it below.

Matt Damon, Elysium
Is "Elysium" the last blockbuster worth looking forward to this summer? The verdict is in on "The Lone Ranger" and it's not good, "Pacific Rim" is still a very big question mark and "The Wolverine" at this point looks only marginally better than 'Origins' at best. Can Neill Blomkamp send us out of the season with a bang?

With “Monsters University” still making big bucks in the box office and advertisements for the upcoming “Despicable Me 2” dominating all forms of media, it will be interesting to see how much of a splash “Turbo” can make when it hits theaters two weeks from now. Dreamworks and Twentieth Century Fox certainly have their work cut out for them. They have just released a new trailer for the film and even though most of the footage is similar to the ones that came before, we do get more of a glimpse of the human characters that are in the movie.

 BLACK NATIVITY, Mary J. Blige
With films generally aimed at the smart indie crowd - "Trance," "Stoker," "The Way Way Back," "The East" are just a few released in 2013 -- it's easy to box in Fox Searchlight as mini major film studio aimed 20-something white college kids with disposable income but the studio is actually branching out this year. The romantic comedy "Baggage Claim" starring Paula Patton will be the first African-American-aimed release of the year for the studio in September and arriving two months later will be the musical drama, "Black Nativity."

It works, and the first trailer is here to show you some skin and give a tease of what you'll be getting later this year.

Inside Llewyn Davis Oscar Isaac
The Coen brothers have taken audiences to a variety of unique and distinct cinematic worlds, from the corporate boardroom of a toymaker in "The Hudsucker Proxy"; the vast hinterlands of North Dakota in "Fargo"; the hijinks at a fitness center in "Burn After Reading"; the seamy surreal underbelly of Hollywood in "Barton Fink"; the weirder corners of California in "The Big Lebowski" and so much more. And their next destination? The clubs of the '60s folk music scene in "Inside Llewyn Davis," their knockout Cannes film and early contender for one of the best movies hands down of the year.

And a new teaser trailer is here to give you a little sampling.

Earlier this year, we saw Steven Soderbergh revitalize the aging erotic thriller genre with "Side Effects," a pretty nifty and pulpy take on the kinds of poitboilers we don't really get much of anymore. Or don't we? In just a couple of months you'll be able to undo the top few buttons of your shirt, metaphorically or literally, when Brian De Palma's "Passion" arrives, and a new trailer is here to take you into the film's sexy and murderous dance.

Clear History Larry David Jon Hamm
Let's face it: Larry David isn't an actor. Like his best bud Jerry Seinfeld, he has a very defined comedic box in which he fits, and within those parameters, he's devastatingly hilarious. There's nothing wrong with that -- if you know your strengths and can continue to be great, why not? And while David used an extreme version of himself to power "Curb Your Enthusiasm," his big screen lead outing in Woody Allen's "Whatever Works" didn't quite come together in the eyes of many (though this writer takes a certain shine to it). Can he succeed with his second try at a leading movie role in "Clear History"?
