Transporter 3, Twilight, Sunshine Cleaning, Birds of America, Christmas On Mars

Transporter 3     France 16MB   US 8MB
Two full trailer versions for the third movie in the series. An official one from France and another one that looks like a bootleg version of an upcoming US trailer. Taken together they probably reveal far too much of the movie. Again, Jason Statham has to transport something to somewhere. As one would expect, lots of stunts and action. Still looks again like some good, mindless fun.

Twilight     HD480p 74MB   HD720p 140MB   HD1080 195MB
Full trailer for the big screen adaptation of the first book of the series of youth novels written by Stephenie Meyer scheduled for release in December. It tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Nativity Story).
Oh my god, they kiss!

Sunshine Cleaning     17 MB
Dark, comedic drama in which, in order to raise the tuition to send her young son to private school, a mom (Amy Adams) starts an unusual business, a biohazard removal/crime scene clean-up service with her unreliable sister (Emily Blunt). Alan Arkin sort of reprises his role from Little Miss Sunshine, Steve Zahn, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Clifton Collins Jr. round up the cast.
Seems like a nice, little indie movie.

Birds of America     16 MB
Comedic drama about a regular guy (Matthew Perry) who struggles with a repressive home and professional life, as well as making amends for the trouble his free-spirited brother (Ben Foster) and sister (Ginnifer Goodwin) cause about town. Lauren Graham plays his wife and Hilary Swank is also part of the cast. Directed by Craig Lucas (The Dying Gaul).
Movie is set for a DVD release at the end of the month in the US but given its prominent cast I thought I mention it. Trailer looks funny and the reviews indicate that while the movie isn't breaking any new ground in the dysfunctional family genre, there are worse movies that get a theatrical release.

Christmas on Mars: the Flaming Lips     HD480p 18MB   HD720p 61MB
For the friends of experimental, not-from-this-world, sci-fi movies, the trailer for this movie made by the musicians of The Flaming Lips. The official description reads: It's Christmastime, and the colonization of Mars is underway. However, when an oxygen generator and a gravity control pod malfunction, Major Syrtis and his team fear the worst. Syrtis also hallucinates about the birth of a baby, and many other strange things. Meanwhile, a compassionate alien superbeing arrives, inspiring and helping the isolated astronauts. Maybe you would like to have a look at an attempted review of the NYT.
Looks very trippy, but also pretty funny. Already in (very) limited release in the US.
