Welcome to The Trailer Park! - A weekly column rounding up new and newish trailers lurking around the internet.

As always, put on your John Nada sunglasses before the jump or...submit to the advertising.




Alex Cross
Interesting choice going with Tyler Perry as Alex Cross. Nice to see him stretch his wings a bit in and action movie.


The Awakening
Not sure how scary this will be, but the desaturated photography looks beautiful in many of the atmospheric shots.


Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away
James Cameron is involved with the 3D, so there is some slight interest in there for me.could make for a nice theater experience visually.


The Deep Blue Sea
Not one shark in this entire movie. looks pretty boring if you ask me.

Easy Money
WOW! How about that contrast between the music and the imagery.

Epic
Reads more like a beautiful music video in the beginning and then slowly turns into a teaser/trailer near the end. Not sure how "epic" this is actually going to be.


Fun Size
This will serve as a nice non horror Halloween movie for all non thrill seeking high school students. Maybe all the hump jokes will make the kids feel risky and adventurous while watching the movie.

Hara-Kiri: Death Of A Samurai
Andy Schopp might like this. I think Samurai are his thing.


Here Comes The Boom
A school teacher (Kevin James) becomes an MMA fighter to save his school. Someone out there who digs MMA is sure to find this funny and inspirational.

Red Hook Summer
Spike Lee takes us back to Brooklyn in what looks to be another fine film from the director.

Robot & Frank
This movie takes a criminal turn I didn't expect. It looks like it's still able to achieve sentiment even with the tonal shift.

The Sessions
This looks great! I'd love some Oscar consideration for this film, especially for John Hawkes. The man is so diverse in his performances. Great and reliable character actor.

Silver Linings Playbook
I had to watch this twice to gain any interest in it. If you find you aren't digging it on the first viewing, try watching it a second time. It worked for me.

The Tall Man
Kids being taken from their parents style thriller.
