Trailer Park

By R. Kurt Osenlund, Correspondent

Behold -- some of the newest trailers for some of the most exciting films in the pipe.

Author Stephenie Meyer's massively succesful novel about vampire romance gets adapted to the big screen by script-writer Melissa Rosenberg (TV's "Dexter") and director Catherine Hardwicke ("Thirteen"). Highly anticipated by fans of Meyer's book series, the film stars Kristen Stewart ("Panic Room") and Robert Pattinson ("Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix") as star-crossed lovers Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. In the final trailer below, peeks of the soaring cinematography by Elliot Davis give this seemingly gimmicky genre film some serious promise.

Tom Cruise returns to cinema in this Nazi drama from director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects," Apt Pupil," "X-Men"). In the fact-based film, Cruise stars as Col. Clauss von Stauffenberg, a high-ranking German officer who initiates a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler during WWII. Written by Christopher McQuarrie ("Suspects") and first-timer Nathan Alexander, the film also stars Kenneth Brannagh, Bill Nighy, Carice van Houten, and Eddie Izzard.

From director Gary Winick ("13 Going on 30") come this feisty chick-flick comedy about two soon-to-be brides who feud over the same wedding date. Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway play the best-friends-turned-rivals, both of whom want to have their dream weding at the Plaza Hotel in New York on the same day. Female film staple Candice Bergen co-stars.
