What Just Happened?     7 MB    Clip1   Clip2
Preliminary trailer for this comedic drama that focuses on two weeks in the life of a fading Hollywood producer (Robert De Niro) who's having a rough time trying to get his new picture made and who's also trying to hold on to a broken second marriage. Extensive cast includes Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Michael Wincott, Catherine Keener, Robin Wright Penn, Sean Penn and Kristen Stewart. Directed by Barry Levinson (Bandits, Wag the Dog, Rain Man). Based on the book by Hollywood producer Art Linson.
I've read that the movie isn't as good as it should be given the story and its cast but so far they were able to make a pretty funny trailer from it. Also, two clips.

Gonzo     HD480p 32MB   HD720p 105MB
Portrait of the late, controversial gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson directed by Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room). It focuses on his most provocative and productive period from 1965 to 1975. Among the topics covered are his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell's Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign. It is narrated by Johnny Depp and it's interesting to see how much Depp resembled Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Australia     18 MB    Costumes 83 MB
A variation of the first teaser that contains new footage from the epic, romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II written and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom). It stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman as well as David Wenham and Bryan Brown. Also, another very interesting podcast, this time about the costumes.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor     HD480p 36MB   HD720p 84MB   HD1080p 139MB    UK 18MB
Hi-def quicktime version of the previously posted first trailer for the third movie of the mummy series. Also, the UK version of the trailer that has a different one-liner.

City of Ember     HD480p 43MB   HD720p 70MB   HD1080p 102MB
Hi-def quicktime version of the previously posted, very good teaser in various sizes and also cropped differently so that you get a larger picture. For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker. Now, two teenagers (Saoirse Ronan, Harry Treadaway), must search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city's existence, and help the citizens escape before the lights go out forever. Bill Murray plays the Mayor, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook are also part of the cast. Directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House).
