The final 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' trailer has arrived and, well, it looks like another 'Hobbit' movie. If your faith in director Peter Jackson's vision of Middle-Earth remains unshaken, prepare to get excited. If the previous two films have muted your excitement for the series, prepare to see...more of the same.

'Into the Woods' Trailer: The Cast Actually Gets Around to Singing This Time

The first 'Into the Woods' trailer was strangely lacking in singing, which was an odd way to sell a movie based on one of the most beloved of all modern musicals. Thankfully, Disney has course corrected with trailer number two, which actually lets us see and hear the ensemble cast performing Stephen Sondhiem's iconic songs. It's an improvement by default.

'The Gambler' Trailer: Mark Wahlberg Makes a Whole Bunch of Bad Decisions

We've already seen the red band trailer for 'The Gambler,' which introduced us to director Rupert Wyatt's news thriller with a foul-mouthed bang. Now, a tamer version has arrived and it replaces the F-bomb poetry of the last preview with actual details on the film's plot and characters. Not a bad trade.

'Chappie' Trailer: The Director of 'District 9' Presents a Family and Their Robot

What are we to make of the 'Chappie' trailer, which looks to promise a funny, thoughtful and original science-fiction tale about a robot who "grows up" in the South African slums? On one hand, it's from the director 'District 9.' On the other hand, that same man also directed 'Elysium.' The fact that the trailer name-drops the former and not the latter gives us hope that this is Neill Blomkamp returning to form after his sophomore misfire.

The first full trailer for 'Minions' has arrived, highlighting the little yellow, gibberish-speaking sidekicks from 'Despicable Me,' who are getting their very own prequel/origin story. Set 42 years B.G. (Before Gru), the lovable little yellow goofballs are on a quest to find their next master after a series of mishaps throughout the years has left them without a leader.

'A Most Violent Year' Trailer: Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain Fight to Protect Their Family

EDIT

On paper, 'A Most Violent Year' doesn't sound like anything special. It's a story we've seen a hundred times before: a criminal finds his bloody business creeping into his family life, threatening to tear down everything he's worked so hard to build. However, when you put J.C. Chandor in the director's chair and cast people like Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles, what was once old starts to feel new again.

'Fast and Furious 7' Trailer: Just When You Thought It Couldn't Get Any Better

EDIT

Here we go! After being teased in seven-second increments earlier this week, we have the first full, official trailer for the newly-titled 'Furious 7,' which wastes absolutely no time getting right into the bonkers action, with a car being parachute-dropped onto the road during one of the crew's missions, and Paul Walker's Brian being rescued from a harrowing episode on the edge of a cliff by Michelle Rodriguez. And that's only a fraction of what we see in this trailer.

'Ex Machina' Trailer: Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac in a Robotic Love Triangle

EDIT

There are a number of interesting things going on in the first 'Ex Machina' trailer, but let's get the weird one out of the way first: this is a 2015 science fiction film starring Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac that is not called 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' The fact that these two very interesting actors are starring in next year's biggest sci-fi adventure as well as this small, cerebral sci-fi indie only deepens our appreciation for both of them.

'Serena' Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence Is Not That Kind of Woman

If you can't get enough of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper on screen together, we've got good news for you: between filming 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'American Hustle' for David O. Russell, the pair filmed the period drama 'Serena,' which will finally be released in the U.S. next spring. And now we have the first U.S. trailer for Oscar-winner Susanne Bier's new film, which endured an 18-month editing process.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' Final Trailer: Katniss Goes to War

The final trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' is here and it's strictly business. At just over a minute long, it's packed full of big emotions and even bigger explosions, never even bothering to pause and fill you in on the plot because it already assumes that you saw the first two movies. Yeah, this movie is going to be huge.
