Seven Pounds     9 MB
Emotional drama about an IRS agent (Will Smith) with a fateful secret who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers. Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, Barry Pepper and Michael Ealy are also part of the cast. Movie reunites Smith with Italian director Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness).
Bring tissues! Hope there will be a hi-def version of the trailer soon.

Defiance     14 MB
Full trailer for this drama about three Jewish brothers (Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber and Jamie Bell) who escape from Nazi-occupied Poland into the Belorussian forest, where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavour to build a village in order to protect themselves and others in danger. Mark Margolis, Alexa Davalos and Mark Feuerstein are also part of the cast. Directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai).
Clearly aimed at Awards' season.

Incendiary     22 MB
Intense drama about a spirited young mother (Michelle Williams) who has a husband and a son. Sometimes, when she's beside herself with fear when her husband is away on bomb disposal duties, she seeks solace with her neighbour Jasper (Ewan McGregor). On Mayday, after seeing her boys off to a major football match, she meets Jasper again and brings him back to her flat. Minutes later she can only watch as live TV coverage shows the stadium ripped apart by massive explosions. In the aftermath, she rejects Jasper's attempts to comfort her. Instead she finds herself drawn to her husband's boss (Matthew Macfadyen), the police officer in charge of the investigation. Directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones's Diary). Based on the book by Chris Cleave.

Sunshine Cleaning     HD480p 45MB   HD720p 63MB
Entirely different trailer in glorious hi-def quicktime for the 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.
Looks like a nice little indie movie.

W.     Brolin/Banks 50MB
And on a lighter note, a ten minute unscripted interview with Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Banks. Brolin is quite the character. I think it's the first time where they had to bleep and pixelate parts of the interview.
