The Incredible Hulk     HD480p 46MB   HD720p 114MB
Second trailer that tries to halt the train wreck that is the second attempt to make a successful big screen adaptation of the Marvel comic. Scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) desperately hunts for a cure to the gamma radiation that poisoned his cells and unleashes the unbridled force of rage within him: The Hulk. Living in the shadows, cut off from a life he knew and the woman he loves (Liv Tyler), he struggles to avoid the obsessive pursuit of his nemesis, General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt), and the military machinery that seeks to capture him and brutally exploit his power. Tim Roth plays The Abomination and, according to imdb, Robert Downey Jr. will also make an appearance. Directed by Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, Unleashed).
I'd say it looks better than the first one but it will be difficult to overcome the negative publicity and to find its audience between all the other big summer releases.

Towelhead - Nothing is Private     42 MB    Clip1   Clip2   Clip3   Clip4
Darkly comedic drama that takes place in the early 90s about a 13-year-old Lebanese-American girl (Summer Bishil) who discovers her sexuality. She has to deal with her strict father while she becomes kind of obsessed with a bigoted Army reservist (Aaron Eckhart). Maria Bello plays her mother and Toni Collette a nosy neighbour. Directorial debut of Alan Ball, the creator of "Six Feet Under" and writer of American Beauty. Based on the novel by Alicia Erian.
Trailer looks good and reviews from festival screenings are generally favourable but even after knowing that the lead actress was over 18 while the movie was made it still leaves you a little uncomfortable. When downloading the clips, please change file extension to .flv if necessary.

The Wackness     HD480p 39MB   HD720p 88MB
A second teaser for this coming-of-age comedic drama set in 1994 in New York City, when Giuliani just became mayor. It centres on a troubled teenage drug dealer (Josh Peck) and a drug-addled psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley). The former trades pot for therapy sessions and also falls for the doctor's step-daughter (Olivia Thirlby). Famke Janssen plays the doctor's wife. Method Man and Mary-Kate Olsen are also part of the cast. Movie won the Audience Award this year in Sundance.
Still seems to be a nice little movie thanks to Kingsley but I still think this teaser approach for small indie movies is a bit difficult.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2     HD480p 50MB   HD720p 119MB
Full trailer for the sequel based on Ann Brashares' best-selling series of novels about four young women (Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, Blake Lively, Amber Tamblyn,) who continue the journey toward adulthood. Now three years later, these lifelong friends embark on separate paths for their first year of college and the summer beyond, but remain in touch by sharing their experiences with each other as they always have, with honesty and humor. Directed by Sanaa Hamri (Something New).

Iron Man     Downey/Favreau/Howard 51MB    Clips
Ten minute unscripted interview between Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau and Terrence Howard, the stars of the big screen adaptation of the Marvel comic that opens this weekend pretty much everywhere. Additionally, a link that leads to a couple of clips from the movie.
