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 'Chappie' poster seems harmless enough, but it really represents a true make-it-or-break-it point for director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley. This one-sheet, which exists simply to introduce the title character of this new science fiction film about a family who "adopts" a robot with ties to the criminal underworld, represents a film that could be the next great exciting genre project ... or the final sign that we all put a little too much faith in the people who made 'District 9.'

If nothing else, 'Maleficent' looks like a grand showcase for Angelina Jolie's ability to vamp it up on screen. The new trailer for Disney's revisionist take on 'Sleeping Beauty' is as gorgeous and mysterious as the rest, giving Jolie plenty of time to shine and ham it up as the title anti-hero.

Disney's latest 'Maleficent' trailer sure brings back fond memories of watching the animated rendition of 'Sleeping Beauty' as a kid (or watching them with your kids), but this is not that story. Angelina Jolie smolders (quite literally) as Maleficent in this origin tale of how the iconic witch came to be so ... well, malevolent.
