In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Last month all we had on David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis was this teaser trailer, it was short and did a good job at Robert Pattinson doesn’t have to sparkle all the time. He is going to surprise a lot of people here and there is nothing wrong with that. Now we have two trailers that show off that Cronenberg touch we have come to love so much.

New Line Cinema has released the first trailer for their upcoming rock and roll movie Rock of Ages starring Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Ackerman, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise. I’m not a fan of the music, but I like when Tom Cruise isn’t playing someone totally out of character (see Magnolia). Also, check out Baldwins wig, it’s a classic.
Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.
The movie opens June 1, 2012. Watch the first trailer below:

The trailer will leave you want genre of movie you’re interested in here, it seems to be a mix bag, and there’s nothing wrong with that. John Dies at the End is based on a comedic horror novel written by Jason Pargin.
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.

Here is the theatrical trailer for The Ides of March with George Clooney taking on double duty as director and star. The story follows a young press secretary (played by Ryan Gosling) who falls prey to dirty backroom politics as he works to get his candidate elected in a tight race.
The rest of the cast includes Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. Clooney is no stranger to the politics genre, Good Night and Good Luck was an impressive outing. Watch the trailer for The Ides of Match below:

Win Win is the latest film from director Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) and we have the trailer. The film got some great reviews out of Sundance.

Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family.
