It has been a while since I have done a Trailer MegaPost because I have been waiting for some awesome trailers to share with you guys.  This week we will look at the trailers for Rise of the Guardians, Premium Rush, Hope Springs, and This Time. 

1.  Rise of the Guardians – http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/dreamworks/riseoftheguardians/

This Dreamworks animated feature has a great cast behind it that includes Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, and Jude Law. Rise of the Guardians is an epic, magical adventure that tells the story of the legendary characters Santa Claus (Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Fisher), the Sandman, and Jack Frost (Pine). When an evil spirit known as Pitch (Law) lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere. This exciting adventure is set to hit theaters November 21. 2012.

2. Premium Rush – http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/premiumrush/

The Daivd Koepp-directed action film Premium Rush includes actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung in the cast. This film follows New York bike messengers who are used to dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians. The best of New York’s agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. Wilee (Gordon-Levitt), is used to putting his life on the line, but things are about to get even more complicated when a routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him. This high-stakes thriller is set to ride into theaters August 24, 2012.

3. Hope Springs – http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony/hopesprings/

Hope Springs is a comedy that follows Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to reconnect with her husband. She hears of a renowned couple’s specialist, Dr. Feld (Steve Carell), in the small town of Great Hope Springs and she attempts to persuade Arnold to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing him to go on the retreat is hard enough–the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their bedroom hang-ups and try reconnect and find the spark that made them to fall in love to begin with. Look for this movie in theaters August 10, 2012.

4. This Time – http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/independent/thistime/

This Time is a documentary that follows the painstaking efforts to turn up the volume on the careers of musical legends and inspired has-beens and never-beens as they navigate the treacherous stages and recording studios of a music industry far removed from the overnight sensations of “American Idol.” An unflinching and entertaining portrait of faith, talent and gut-wrenching determination wrapped in a soaring soundtrack. This Time comes from Grammy nominated director Victor Mignatti and features The Sweet Inspirations, Peitor Angell, Bobby Belfry, Pat Hodges, and Cissy Houston.
