Angels & Demons     .flv 9MB   HD720p 59MB
A first, short teaser for the second adaptation of a Dan Brown novel. Ron Howard again directs, Tom Hanks returns. This time Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon works to solve a murder and prevent a terrorist act against the Vatican. He gets help by a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer). Ewan McGregor and Stellan Skarsgård are also part of the cast.

Slumdog Millionaire     HD480p 42MB   HD720p 104MB
Finally a trailer for Danny Boyle's (Sunshine, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later...) latest movie who once again switches genres. This time he tells the engaging story of an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much?
Movie so far got rave reviews from festivals. The MPAA tries its best to prevent the movie from becoming a success by slapping a mind-boggling "R" rating on the movie. What rating got The Dark Knight again?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince     .flv 11MB   .mov 22MB
For those who haven't already seen it, a downloadable quicktime version of the leaked UK teaser for the sixth Harry Potter movie that probably will be in theatres next July.

My Name is Bruce     HD480p 33MB   HD720p 103MB
Horror comedy in which Bruce Campbell is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster - a nine-foot-tall sword-wielding Chinese god of war - in a small town in Oregon. Mortified at first, Campbell decides to enjoy his stab at protecting the innocent until the situation turns decidedly gruesome. Confronted by a monster that’s not a guy in a rubber suit, and with the blood of innocents on his hands, Bruce must abandon his slothful Hollywood ways.
Horrible voice-over notwithstanding, this could be fun for the fans of the genre.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno     HD480p 107MB   HD720p 233MB
Another trailer version for Kevin Smiths's (Clerks, Dogma) new comedy. It's about two lifelong friends (Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks) who are deep in debt and enlist the help of their friends to make a porno movie for some quick cash. But as everybody starts "doing" everybody, Zack and Miri realize that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought. Also part of the cast are Craig Robinson, Traci Lords, Jeff Anderson, Jason Mewes and Justin Long.
The people who encoded the trailer were very generous when it comes to the bitrate which resulted in files that are about double the size of regular trailers. If you can't get enough, there are now more than a dozen money shots at the movie's website consisting of interviews, featurettes and Public Service announcements.
