    Watch: Interactive Promo For 'Snow White & The Huntsman,' New Green-Band Trailer For 'The Watch'

    Once upon a time, you could just release a trailer and people were happy with it: a rare glimpse into a movie that was still weeks or months off. Nowadays, you can't just have one trailer, you have to several, some before the movie's even been made, plus endless TV spots and featurettes and clips an...

    Watch: Latest Trailer For Pixar's 'Brave' Is The Most Promising Yet

    With "The Hunger Games" now sitting pretty among the top twenty domestic grossers of all time (it's about to overtake "Jurassic Park"), the fallacy that wide audiences won't go to action-oriented films starring a female lead seems to have been disproven. And we're abo...
