Trailer placement is a very important thing. You get your promo in front of a film that has the same target audience, and turns out to be a big hit, and you're potentially laughing all the way to the bank. And that's why we've just seen a trailer for "Last Vegas" over at Yahoo -- "The Hangover Part III" is only a week away, and it's the perfect film to help sell CBS Films' aged bachelor party movie to a giant crowd.

When “V/H/S” came out last year, reaction was… mixed, to put it lightly. Like most anthology films, it was wildly uneven. But it seems the concept is just too irresistible for other filmmakers to resist and thus, we have “V/H/S 2.” Originally titled “S-V/H/S”, the sequel premiered at Sundance this past January to a much more positive reception than the first (read our review). Now a red band trailer has just been posted online over at Yahoo and there’s only one way to describe it: utter mayhem.

The teaser trailer for Blue Sky Studio's "Rio 2" has just hit the internet and the brief clip doesn't explain much, instead encouraging you to shake your tail feathers while you'll undoubtedly wonder, at least for the first thirty seconds or so, if you're watching a commercial for a feature-length version of the "Angry Birds" iPhone game. (Spoiler alert: you're not.)

Riddick
"Fast & Furious" is the franchise that keeps going from strength to strength, while "Riddick," Vin Diesel's other long-running series, is the one that just won't die. Diesel got his big break as the gravel-voiced, contact-lensed psychopath in David Twohy's "Pitch Black" in 2000, and after he became a star, Universal invested big in "The Chronicles of Riddick," and took a financial bath on a film that proved pretty incoherent and ugly (if occasionally intriguing).

If any of the major studios had the brass balls to take on "Behind The Candelabra," we think Michael Douglas probably would've been a no brainer as an Oscar contender, particularly judging by this new trailer unveiled over at The Guardian. It's a totally transformative performance and it looks like a total blast. While Douglas stuck with the project -- put on hold as he battled cancer and revived once he recovered -- and was open to all challenges the script brought with it, he did have his limits.

What if you could jump back through time to say the perfect line, make a better first impression or perform better in the sack? That's the ambitious central premise of "About Time," the latest from "Love Actually" writer/director Richard Curtis, that takes the traditional rom-com and adds a little does of time travel in for good measures. Does it work? Well, let's take a look at the first trailer...

As I Lay Dying
Tackling an adaptation of a William Faulkner novel, featuring no less than fifteen different characters, in a narrative that doesn't lend itself easily to a cinematic interpretation would be a challenge for anybody. But not everybody is James Franco. In the past year, he's dropped a documentary about a porn site and another inspired by deleted scenes from William Friedkin's "Cruising," so "As I Lay Dying" is right in his wheelhouse of ambitious fare. The fact that it has been included in the Cannes Film Festival lineup as part of the Un Certain Regard slate appears to mean he's done his job and pulled it off, and now you can judge for yourself.

A seven-second micro-teaser dropped on Friday, but now you can catch the first real glimpse of Agent Coulson’s second coming on TV.
