Tropic Thunder     HD480p 50MB   HD720p 128MB
Ben Stiller directed comedy about five actors who go on location and find themselves relying on their boot camp experiences when they get stuck in a real war-like situation. Jack Black plays an overweight gross-out comedian, who's forced to kick his drug addiction while filming on location in the jungle. Robert Downey Jr. plays the greatest actor of his generation and a four-time Oscar winner (I have a feeling he'll get some sort of nomination for this). Jay Baruchel plays an unknown actor on the set and Ben Stiller an action guy. And then there's also Steve Coogan and Nick Nolte. So something for everyone so at least part of this should actually be funny.

Then She Found Me     13 MB
"Touching" story of schoolteacher April (Helen Hunt, also her directing debut) who, following the separation from her husband (Matthew Broderick) and the death of her adopted mother, is contacted by her apparent birth month (Bette Midler), who turns out to be a local talk show host. As she tries to become the mother she was never able to be, April seems to find solace in the arms of the parent of one of her students (Colin Firth), only to find that the mystery to life's questions cannot be solved by a simple revelation. There's also Salman Rushdie playing a doctor.

Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon     19 MB
Another epic movie from China this time based on a popular classic Chinese novel written in the 14th century. Andy Lau stars as Zhao Yun, a top general of the kingdom of Shu who takes a last stand against the invading forces from the kingdom of Wei. Maggie Q is Cao Ying, a granddaughter of warlord Cao Cao, whose eldest son Cao Pi becomes the first emperor of the Wei kingdom.
Technical quality of the trailer is good, but sadly without English subtitles.

Flashbacks of a Fool     .mov 14MB   .flv 17MB
Drama about an aging movie star (Daniel Craig) who returns to his English seaside hometown for the funeral of his childhood best friend. He experiences flashbacks of his younger years and a summer that resulted in a tragedy that changed his life forever. Also part of the cast are Mark Strong, Olivia Williams, Helen McCrory, Emilia Fox, Eve and Claire Forlani.
From the trailer it's a bit hard to say what kind of movie this will be.

Pineapple Express     HD480p 61MB   HD720p 94MB
Since there's already been the redband trailer it's seems a bit redundant to make the "regular" one available, but here's the trailer for the latest (crime) comedy associated with Judd Apatow. It's about a stoner (Seth Rogen) and his dealer (James Franco) who are forced to go on the run from the police after the pothead witnesses a cop (Rosie Perez) commit a murder. Bill Hader and Gary Cole are also part of the cast.
Still funny.

The Incredible Hulk     HD480p 43MB   HD720p 100MB   HD1080p 153MB
Since the first available files for this trailer were difficult to play, here the yahoo encoded files. Not optimal too, but much better. Also, an interview with director Louis Leterrier in which he "explains" the trailer and has a lot of interesting infos about the movie, though some of you may consider it spoilerish.
