The second full, action-packed trailer (though a bit on the short side) for the sequel. One year later, the Kings and Queens of Narnia find themselves back in that faraway wondrous realm, only to discover that more than 1,300 years have passed in Narnian time. During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has become extinct and Narnia has been conquered by the Telmarines and is now under the control of the evil King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto). The four children will soon meet a curious new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), who has been forced into hiding, as his uncle Miraz plots to kill him in order to place his own newborn son on the throne. With the help of the kindly dwarf (Peter Dinklage), a courageous talking mouse named Reepicheep, a badger named Trufflehunter and a Black Dwarf, Nikabrik (Warwick Davis), they must try to find Aslan and rescue Narnia. Andrew Adamson once again directs.
Additionally, a featurette.

Young People Fucking     HD480p 24MB   HD720p 60MB
Usually, I automatically frown when I come across movie titles that seem to be deliberately chosen to attract and offend people (depending on your point-of-view) since it always smells like a cheap way to call attention to an oftentimes mediocre product. But this small indie comedy looks quite funny and it got good reviews after its screening last year at the Toronto Film Festival.
It's described as a smart and fast-paced comedy that intertwines the stories of five couples over the course of one sexual encounter. As the couples attempt to have some seemingly straight forward sex, they run into all sorts of problems. And in case you are wondering, the movie is mainly "explicit" in its dialogue but not visually. High five!

Earth     HD480p 39MB   HD720p 95MB
An US announcement trailer for the feature-length version of the documentary TV series "Planet Earth" from the BBC, that follows the migration paths of four animal families. Narration is provided by Patrick Stewart.
I've no idea why the theatrical release in the US will only be in April next year since the doc is already breaking all kinsd of box office records here in Europe. If you like docs like this then it doesn't get any better. And yes, of course, there are polar bears. And penguins!

Hamlet 2     HD480p 52MB   HD720p 122MB
The regular, green-band trailer version for this comedy about a high school drama teacher (Steve Coogan) who looks to motivate his students and save his department by writing a politically incorrect musical sequel to Shakespeare's "Hamlet". Other cast members include Catherine Keener, Amy Poehler, David Arquette, Melonie Diaz and re-introducing Elisabeth Shue as Elisabeth Shue (who looks great).
Advertised with a six-degree connection between the movie and South Park which means the humour in the movie is trying to offend just about everyone.

Henry Poole is Here     7 MB
Comedic drama about a disillusioned man (Luke Wilson) who attempts to hide from life in a rundown suburban tract home only to discover he cannot escape the forces of hope. Among his neighbours are a well-meaning busybody named Esperanza (Adriana Barraza) and a beautiful young divorcée next door (Radha Mitchell) and her daughter. Henry's self-imposed exile is shattered when Esperanza discovers a mysterious stain on Henry's stucco wall that is seen to have miraculous powers.
Looks sweet though according to available reviews it's very heavy on the "Christian Message" side.
