I've been asked many, many times in the past few days: Which movies are worth peeping at the AFI Dallas International Film? I've offered my suggestions, oh, here and even over there. And while I seem to always be leaving off a few here and there (you really must see Sundance fave Rocket Science, and the self-described doc Punk's Not Dead puts up one hell of a good fight...oh, and American Fork, you gotta see American Fork), perhaps the queries stem from the fact that for whatever reason, the AFI's site doesn't feature any trailers for films screening in the fest. (Most fests do provide that service, incidentally.)
Now, since the previews are the best part of any moviegoing experience, and since they're sorta helpful if you're stuck for choices, after the jump, our amazing editorial assistant Kaitlin Ingram has gone through the entirety of the schedule and found every single trailer that was available online. (Some films don't have trailers; in that case, outta luck.) It took a lot of work; not all this stuff's readily available on YouTube. So if you see something on the AFI sked that maybe you're, like, kinda interested in but not sure about, well, just follow the jump. And give Kaitlin your thanks. --Robert Wilonsky
