Trailer Park

By R. Kurt Osenlund, film critic and correspondent

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

Director Zack Snyder ("Dawn of the Dead," "300") takes on the daunting task of adapting this immensely popular 1980s graphic novel to the screen. Focusing on a band of superheroes and their very human problems, the film has had a rocky road to the cineplex, plagued by battles over ownership rights and production delays. It finally arrives at the end of March and stars Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley.

The long-awaited new film from the great Quentin Tarantino, "Basterds" stars Brad Pitt as a tough-as-nails army general that amps up his troops to claim the scalps of Nazis during WWII. If there's anything that the film industry doesn't need right now, it's another movie about Nazi Germany, but with Tarantino behind the camera, there's bound to be something new and exciting in front of it.

In this screwball comedy, Paul Rudd ("Knocked Up") plays a guy about to get married with no best man. He searches out a stand-in best friend and finds him in a doofus played by Jason Segel ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall"). As the producers would probably say, hilarity then ensues.
