The Five Best Movie Trailers of the Year So Far

Mega-ass kickery in The Raid: Redemption
Between The Hulk screaming at our faces in 3-D and Batman possibly breaking his spine in IMAX, it's going to be a fairly epic year in blockbuster cinema. Yet, if you're scheduling your year of movie patronage based solely on the trailers (and not the incessant Rotten Tomatoes picking), then the following films are good bets. Note: There's no Three Stooges trailer below because, you know?

The below trailer is NSFW.

Oh, just David Cronenberg doing his David Cronenbergy-'80s mind-is-the-body connection thing. Wait, hang on, it's based on a Don DeLillo novel about a millionaire's romp through New York. Awesome. Hopefully this will scare the living shit out of Twilight fans.

The scope of Ridley Scott's new film is reportedly no less than the race to save humankind. Also, it's Michael Fassbender as an android.

The Raid: Redemption
Mark it: this is going to be the most thunderous action film of the year.

Brave (The Japanese Trailer)
Pixar's new Legend of Zelda-y film got a fancy international trailer loaded up with beautiful mysticism. Watch. Then watch the clip from the movie, and try not to let your heart grow three inches and break the scale.

Um, even if you've read nothing about it, Prometheus is also pretty obviously a kind of prequel to Alien.

Ridley Scott's actually said it's more about the "human condition" and "saving the human race" then the Alien storyline. But yeah. Either way, pretty awesome looking.

Doesn't really matter what he said -- when the trailer contains images of the giant fossilized (?) figure known as the 'astronomer' that the original Nostromo crew discovers when they first encounter the alien eggs, plus the crashed spaceship with two arcing arms that's clearly visible in the trailer: Inside that is where the astronomer and the eggs are found.
