Check Out the Trailers for the New Movies This Weekend
#1.) "Jack the Giant Slayer" (PG-13) Trailer
This version of "Jack and the Beanstalk" is by "X-Men" director Bryan Singer, and stars the guy who plays Beast in the "X-Men" movies, Nicholas Hoult. Jack's mistake with the beanstalk gets a beautiful princess captured, and opens the way for giants to wage war on Earth for the first time in centuries.
Ian McShane is the human king who sends Jack up the beanstalk to rescue his daughter, Ewan McGregor is a knight who goes up the beanstalk with Jack, Stanley Tucci is a human conspiring with the giants, and Bill Nighy, a.k.a. Davy Jones in the "Pirates of the Caribbean", is the voice of the two-headed giant.
(You can listen to the cast and director talk more about the giants here.)
#2.) "The Last Exorcism Part II" (PG-13) Trailer
Ashley Bell returns as Nell, who doesn't have any memory of what happened in the first movie, when she was possessed by the demon Abalam. (Here's a behind the scenes video that will bring you up to speed on the events of the first movie. SPOILER: Her dad somehow survived too, and now he wants to finish the job of killing her. Check out that clip here.)
#3.) "21 and Over" (R) Trailer
A comedy from the writers of "The Hangover", about a pre-med student who gets drunk on his 21st birthday and is too smashed to make it to a morning interview without a lot of chaos.

#4.) "Phantom" (R) Trailer
Ed Harris plays the captain of a Russian submarine during the Cold War, who's fighting to take back control of his sub after it's seized by a team of rogue KGB agents led by David Duchovny.
