Between The Hulk screaming at our faces in 3-D and Batman possibly breaking his spine in IMAX, it's going to be a fairly epic year in blockbuster cinema. Yet, if you're scheduling your year of movie patronage based solely on the trailers (and not the incessant Rotten Tomatoes picking), then the following films are good bets. Note: There's no Three Stooges trailer below because, you know?

The below trailer is NSFW.

Oh, just David Cronenberg doing his David Cronenbergy-'80s mind-is-the-body connection thing. Wait, hang on, it's based on a Don DeLillo novel about a millionaire's romp through New York. Awesome. Hopefully this will scare the living shit out of Twilight fans.

The scope of Ridley Scott's new film is reportedly no less than the race to save humankind. Also, it's Michael Fassbender as an android.

The Raid: Redemption
Mark it: this is going to be the most thunderous action film of the year.

Brave (The Japanese Trailer)
Pixar's new Legend of Zelda-y film got a fancy international trailer loaded up with beautiful mysticism. Watch. Then watch the clip from the movie, and try not to let your heart grow three inches and break the scale.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
