Stop Dr. Uwe Boll
If you would like to stop Uwe Boll from making movies there's now something you can do about it. Apparently he said that if a million people will sign a petition he will retire.

Blindness     30 MB
First teaser for Fernando Meirelles' (The Constant Gardener, City of God) upcoming movie based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago. It's a dramatic thriller about a doctor's wife (Julianne Moore) who becomes the only person with the ability to see in a town where everyone is struck with a mysterious case of sudden blindness. She feigns illness in order to take care of her husband (Mark Ruffalo) as her surrounding community breaks down into chaos and disorder. Gael García Bernal, Alice Braga, Sandra Oh and Danny Glover round up the cast.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs     HD480p 36MB   HD720p 75MB
It took them a few (ice) ages to release the teaser online, but here it is. The first teaser for the sequel to the highly successful Ice Age franchise, scheduled to be in theatres in July 2009. As it has become tradition it features a scene with Scrat, who is arguably the best thing about the franchise.

Anamorph     11 MB
Psychological thriller about a reclusive detective (Willem Dafoe) who is drawn into the case of a serial killer who is enacting anamorphosis - a painting technique that manipulates the laws of perspective - only with human bodies. He is thrust into a dark and unsettling underworld that threatens to reveal the secrets of his tormented past. Scott Speedman, Peter Stormare, Clea DuVall and James Rebhorn are also part of the cast.
Looks interesting, I wish the trailer would be a bit longer.

Watchmen     HD480p 83MB   H720p 187MB
The first of what will apparently be a dozen video blog entries that will document the development of Zack Snyder's (300) adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel to be released in theatres next March. Main cast members include Patrick Wilson (Nite Owl), Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach), Matthew Goode (Ozymandias), Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian) and Malin Akerman (Silk Spectre).

The Incredible Hulk     Feat 55 MB
2 1/2 minute featurette that has the usual self-congratulatory shoulder patting but also contains some bits of new footage.
