Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog     Act1 84MB   Act2 79MB   Act3 88MB    Trailer
Downloadable links for all three episodes of the internet musical directed by Joss Whedon that at some point will be available on DVD. It tells the story of a low-rent super villain (Neil Patrick Harris) who keeps getting beat up by a superhero (Nathan Fillion) and can't talk to the cute girl next door.

Surfer Dude     13 MB
Comedy about a longboarding soul-surfer (Matthew McConaughey) who returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands him to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital-reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat and stay flat. Aided by his manager (Woody Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian-angel (Willie Nelson) and his summer lover (Alexie Gilmore), he has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy.
Yes, they found another script where McConaughey can move around topless pretty much all the time. So if you're into that, the movie will probably be pure bliss.

How to Lose Friends & Alienate People     HD480p 62MB   HD720p 91MB
US trailer for this comedy that chronicles the rise and fall of a writer (Simon Pegg) who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamour. After working for an alternative magazine he gets a lucrative offer to work for a conservative publication. Jeff Bridges plays his editor, Megan Fox is a starlet, and Kirsten Dunst the love interest. Gillian Anderson and Danny Huston are also part of the cast. Based on Toby Young's memoir.
After the third trailer attempt I'm afraid it's time to accept that, sadly, this will be far less funny than I would like it to be.

Mad Detective - Sun taam     16 MB
It's not easy to keep track of the international release schedule of movies by Hong Kong director Johnny To (PTU, Election, Fulltime Killer, Running Out of Time). This latest crime thriller is about a rookie cop that teams up with a former officer to hunt down a serial killer. It has a limited release in the US and the UK starting this weekend. And despite the high output of To in recent years he is getting constantly good reviews, with this one being no exception.

Mirrors     HQ 13MB   HD720p 101MB    Redband 37MB
Full trailer for this horror movie in which a troubled ex-cop (Kiefer Sutherland) who now works as a mall security guard must save his family from an unspeakable evil that is using mirrors as a gateway into their home. Paula Patton plays his wife, Amy Smart is also part of the cast. Directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes).
As mentioned before, it's a remake of a Korean movie. You can choose between a "regular" trailer and a very bloody redband trailer. If you want to.
