Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

One of my favorite things about seeing a film on its first weekend of release is the trailers that play before it. I normally try my best to avoid trailers at all cost because I hate seeing too much -- I want the full surprise. When I see a film in theaters, there's no avoiding trailers and I'm not as brave as *Gene Wilder was. One thing editors should always know is this: Don't give away too much! Tease us a little and we'll be thirsty for more.

Below are trailers for five films I've seen in the last week that I cannot get enough of. The great thing about this is, each trailer only gives me a little peek at what I'm in store for. There will surely be longer ones to come, but these are satisfying enough for me. Enjoy.

*Gene Wilder was known for covering his ears and putting his head between his legs while humming during trailers before a film.
