Thought we were done with new 'Avengers 2' footage, did you? Well, the onslaught continues as today brings us yet another new 'Avengers 2' trailer, this one a slightly extended version of the original trailer with new footage, new dialogue and new Ultrons.

Shailene Woodley and Theo James are back in the next installment of the YA-adapting franchise. In this first teaser, a house flies.
Ben Stiller returns for the third film in the popular family franchise, along with Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, and Steve Coogan.
The new 'Mortdecai' trailer has all of the necessary elements to make us write it off completely: Johnny Depp doing a dumb voice, Johnny Depp with a dumb moustache, Johnny Depp wearing at least two stupid hats and well, lets be honest here, the mere presence of Johnny Depp in a 2014 movie. And yet, there's something about this movie that intrigues us and grabs our attention, despite our better judgment.
The final 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' trailer is an anomaly because it's the first piece of marketing for the film that doesn't make us shake our heads in disbelief. After several painfully dull trailers, we finally have a glimpse at the movie that doesn't make us guffaw. For the first time, this actually looks like a Ridley Scott film.
The first trailer 'Selma' doesn't strictly adhere to the sounds of the time, using modern music to punctuate our first look at the upcoming biopic, though it's unclear if the film -- from director Ava DuVernay -- will also utilize a more contemporary soundtrack. Biopics can typically be a bit paint by numbers, but something about this one feels a bit different, perhaps due to the excellent cast and the subject matter, which doesn't seek to follow the life of Dr. King from beginning to end, but instead to focus on a specific portion of his life.
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.
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.
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.
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.
