A Serious Man
Here's a trailer that understands what trailers are supposed to do: grab your attention and make you curious to see more. This black comedy directed by the Coen Brothers and set in 1967 concerns a college professor who is experiencing a professional dilemma and is on the verge of a divorce. This one goes into limited release on October 2.
I Sell the Dead
More than any other trailer I've seen lately this one has me dying to see the film right now. On the eve of his execution a nineteenth century grave robber tells the tale of his exploits unearthing the undead. Sadly, I will have to wait for the film's limited release on August 7.
Another in a long line of screen adaptations of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, the story of a man who achieves eternal youth. No U.S. release date yet.

I was more a fan of the arcade game than the movie, but this long after the fact sequel to 1982's Tron is pretty spectacular. This will be out sometime in 2011.
Hot Tub Time Machine
If you do not love that title then you have no soul. The fourth dimensional waters start bubbling on February 26.
