Trailers! Who has time to watch them all? There are something like forty wide releases due out this summer alone. If you assume each trailer runs about two minutes, that’s about an hour and half of your life you’ll never get back. That’s time you could’ve spent actually watching one of these movies.
If you only watch one trailer this spring, then, you’ll want to make it this one. This three-minute supercut teases most of the season’s biggest releases, from Iron Man 3 to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s surprisingly coherent, which may suggest that these titles aren’t as different as the filmmakers would like us to think. Or maybe it just proves that with the right music and some skillful editing, you can totally change the meaning of any scene. In any case, watch it after the jump.

What does it take for a snail to become fast enough to compete in the Indy 500? According to this new trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo, a terrible car accident and a nitrous oxide wash ought to do the trick.
Ryan Reynolds voices the lead, an ordinary garden snail with not-so-ordinary dreams. While the first trailer focused mostly on his burning desire to race — an apparent impossibility considering it takes him 17 minutes to travel one yard — the second offers a better look at how he might actually achieve that goal, and the friends who’ll be there to help him. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

One of the next animated outings from DreamWorks is Turbo, which features Ryan Reynolds as the voice of a snail who is determined to win the Indy 500. Yeah, seems like that might be difficult.
This first teaser for the film turns out to be pretty cute, as we see the lil’ snail doing a time trail well away from the Indianapolis track. (Complete with music from the soundtrack to Drive.) Suffice to say, he’s got some training to do. Check out the footage below. Read More »
Most movie studios release information about their upcoming slates a year or two at a time. But today DreamWorks Animation released a four-year slate, driven in part by the new distribution deal the company has with Fox, as well as the long lead time needed to make animated films, and also perhaps by the not-so-hot view of the publicly-traded company on Wall Street.
We’ve known that DA has a mind towards heavy sequel production, and that is reflected in this slate, with dates for two more How to Train Your Dragon films, another Kung Fu Panda sequel, and another Madagascar spinoff. But, in addition to films we know about (The Croods, Turbo) there are some other new projects that adapt kids books, and more details on the previously-announced animated Bollywood-style musical.
