    A little bit of trailer roundup to kick off your week for a few films that -- in the case of the first two "Hoodwinked Too!" and "11-11-11" -- would otherwise fall by the wayside with us unless we found a quick way to deal with them, and in the case of the last one "Cracks," a gentle reminder that t...
