Trailers: The Last Airbender (first look at Momo!), Despicable Me, The Green Hornet, Resident Evil: Afterlife, and Charlie St. Cloud

It's a sure sign that Summer's started when trailers get this plentiful. I just posted a bunch of new ones last Thursday and I'm already overloaded with new 2-minute movie ads. Despicable Me is the highlight of the trailers, but this new Facebook clip of The Last Airbender is pretty sweet. I'm a big Airbender fan, and the more footage I see, the more optimistic I get. Hopefully, Shyamalan strikes the right balance and adapts the Nickelodeon series well. More trailers below!

The Green Hornet

After so many rumors that Seth Rogen's Green Hornet film isn't pleasing Sony executives, the trailer doesn't look too bad. Sadly, I'm not familiar enough with the original comic to comment on its accuracy. I can't say I am overly impressed or looking forward to the film either. However, casting Edward James Olmos and Christoph Waltz is wise. At least we have two badasses in the film. It hits theaters January 14, 2011. 

Despicable Me

The little yellow henchmen (genetically modified corn pops) are going to save this film. Even if the story sucks (and it might), these little guys seem unvaryingly hilarious. Smart thinking, but I'm not so sure about casting. I'm not sure why, but some animation studios seem to think that casting funny people in their animated movies will make them funny. Not true. It takes the right voice to work with animation. Look no further than my prime example for all things good: Pixar. Jason Segal, Russell Brand, Steve Carell, Will Arnett, Ken Jeong, Kirsten Wiig, and Danny McBride are all jammed into this movie. Here's hoping for the best. Despicable Me hits theaters July 9, 2010. 

Resident Evil: Afterlife

The Resident Evil video game series has undergone some radical changes in the last decade. It's movie franchise has not. The sparsity of characters and zombies in the trailers so far (and the bosses) are exciting, but this will likely be no better or worse than every other RE film so far. It's safely in the B category. Also, 3D doesn't mean throwing things at the screen. Come on, guys. September 10, 2010 is go time for RE3D.

Charlie St. Cloud

Kid (Zac Efron) has a brother, brother dies. Now he's haunted by his memories of their time together. It looks very geared toward female audiences (as if Zac Efron wasn't enough), but it could be good. I don't mind a little crying if its for a worthy cause. This trailer came out a week or two ago, but I missed it. It hits theaters July 30th, ladies.
