'The Kings Of Summer'
It's no secret that we're fans of Jordon Vogt-Roberts so it's no surprise that his latest film "The Kings Of Summer" (which premiered at Sundance under its original title "Toy's House") is shaping up well for a successful run, garning a good amount of pre-release buzz with some strong promo clips. It's gratifying confirmation of the talent we first saw in his short "Successful Alcoholics." and with a bit of luck the movie will do well this summer, it'll certainly be one of the more original offerings you catch at the cinema, as the brand new trailer demonstrates.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
And the night of non-stop teasers and clips ends with the grandaddy and most substantial of them all: "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." And even though it doesn't open for another seven months, Lionsgate clearly feels like they have a big winner on their hands...

The story of "Romeo & Juliet" has been told, approximately, eleventy billion times. And we're not just talking the countless film versions. From the stage to television to that English class you slept through, Shakespeare's play about doomed lovers has been rich fodder for creative types, the shining example of romance fated to end in tragedy. You would think that a new movie version might try and twist things up a bit, or bring a new flavor to the proceedings. You would be wrong.

Just a couple of days after the UK trailer came tearing around the track, we now get a U.S. spot for Ron Howard's racing drama "Rush" along with some new pics for the movie that's revving its engine pretty hard, pretty early. We're still months away from the film arriving, but perhaps Universal realizes that racing movies probably need a bit of a harder push than other genres. Good thing that so far, it looks pretty rock solid.

Sometimes, a familiar story well told is more than enough, and that seems to be the case with Fox Searchlight's "The Way, Way Back." Premiering at Sundance in January where it was quickly snapped up in a big deal, our man on the ground called it "a crowd pleaser...that entertains and still has a personal stamp." And judging by the first trailer, it seems that's about spot on.

Hangover III
Phil, Alan and Stu. We partied with them in Las Vegas, got wasted with them in Thailand, and now it's all coming back home with "The Hangover Part III," a movie in which they want to burn the gambling mecca where they started their journey to the ground. The first trailer set up the pins -- will this one knock 'em down?

Watch: New Trailer For 'Now You See Me' Shows A Little More Of What It's Got Up Its Sleeve

Up until now, "Now You See Me," the magician thriller by "Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier, seemed like a potential sleeper hit. It's got a terrific cast (including Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Melanie Laurent), an intriguing premise (magicians rob banks and then distribute the money to their audiences), and a solid creative team behind the scenes (including frequent J.J. Abrams collaborators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman) – but that was before we had seen anything from the movie. Now that a second trailer has arrived chock full of new footage, the question remains – did the filmmakers and marketing gurus show too much of their hand? Or is there enough mystery to get you to come back this summer?

After an underwhelming trailer and flashy set photos, we thought the film adaptation of Max Barry’s novel “Syrup,” might show up at Sundance. It didn't, but along the way, Magnolia Pictures landed the film and, with a theatrical and OnDemand release around they corner, they’ve also dropped a brand new trailer.

Elysium trailer
In case you missed it, yesterday evening Sony finally unveiled the long-awaited trailer for "Elysium," Neill Blomkamp's rather ambitious sci-fi follow-up to the dazzling and creative, "District 9." Starring Matt Damon and set in 2154, "Elysium" looks like a direct commentary on "the haves and have-nots." It's set in a future where the ruling class are on Elysium, an elite luxury space station above the planet, while the 99% are stuck on a ravaged and resource-drained Earth, both brutally overpopulated and polluted. And we've got to say: the trailer looks tantalizing and incredible, with some spectacular effects that point to some potential next-level shit.
