Trailer Park

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

By R. Kurt Osenlund, The Good Life film critic


Megan Fox ("Transformers") plays a high school cheerleader from hell in Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody's teenage horror-comedy. Amanda Seyfried ("Mamma Mia!") co-stars as Fox's character's good-hearted BFF. I'm curious, but undoubtedly less curious than the legion of testosterone-pumped fellas who can't wait to see a bit more of Fox's "body" on the big screen.

Stocky comedian Patton Oswalt reportedly gives a winning performance in this indie drama about a parking garage attendant whose obsession with the New York Giants leads to severe, life-changing events. A festival favorite, this sports-movie-with-a-twist may just become a sleeper hit.


After a string of disappointments, Philly-born filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is finally adapting someone else's material instead of forcing us to withstand another self-serving trifle born from his increasingly uninspired mind. This time out, Shyamalan is adding his strong visual talents to a story that originated as an animated Manga series on Nickelodeon. Here's hoping this change of pace breaks Shyamalan's losing streak.
