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.

Overall, it looks like we’re in for one epic, inspiring, action-packed summer, stuffed to the brim with fiery explosions, meaningful looks, and a coke-addled Ken Jeong. At 2:51, this video is on the long side for a trailer, but when you consider the fact that it’s actually 27 trailers in one you can pat yourself on the back for having saved fifty minutes.
Here’s a list of every movie included and its release date:
