Below you can watch the first full trailer for the CBS limited series adaptation of the Stephen King novel Under the Dome. Besides Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) being involved, it made for a fantastic Simpsons Movie storyline. FYI: King originally began work on his bestseller in 1976, and then shelved the project for a couple decades before picking it up again publishing the novel in 2009.
Fox released The Simpsons Movie in 2007 with the same concept. The show will apparently give a shout out to the animated show that has done it all.
The thriller has some local folks at each other when they discover that their vacation town in Maine has been cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious force field. Comic book/TV writer Brian K. Vaughan (Lost) is a writer for the series and Niels Oplev Arden (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) directed the pilot.
Under the Dome premieres on CBS Monday, June 24th.
Below is the first trailer for director Lee Daniels’ (Precious, The Paperboy) “based on a true story” drama The Butler. The film stars Forrest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines, a butler who served at the White House from 1952 to 1986. The trailer is full of familiar faces and plays as some serious awards bait. It certainly looks interesting and seeing Alan Rickman as Reagan was a pleasant surprise.
The film also stars Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Liev Schreiber, and Robin Williams.
The Butler opens on October 18th.
Here is the first trailer for director Edgar Wright’s The World’s End has been released online. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) star, so already we’ve won!

But as they make their way to the pub, they discover that the fate of humankind is on the line.
Welcome home boys. This looks like a lot of fun; they had me at the fence fall (check out fence jumps from Shaun and Fuzz here). The World’s End will be released in the U.K. on August 14th and in North America on October 25th. Tell us what you think below in the comments.

We have the final trailer for Fast & Furious 6, it’s pretty heavy on the action, cars and ladies. It’s a summer movie that’s for sure.

Here is a teaser trailer for director David Gordon Green’s (Pineapple Express) upcoming dramedy Prince Avalanche. I’ve been looking forward to this film since early reviews praised stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, two favorites of mine. The film follows the pair as they spend their summer repainting traffic lines in the middle of a country highway.
There are only four characters that appear onscreen in the entire movie, Prince Avalanche will be available in theaters and on VOD August 9th.
An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection.
