In the interest of making life a bit easier on our readers, we’ve combined the new trailers into one mega-post of upcoming awesomeness! Check out each trailer, as well as our commentary, below:
This remake of of the 1978 film is exactly what you’d expect: a bunch of people are terrorized by killer piranhas… in 3D. You may be asking,“Why should I go and see this?” Well, apart from a cast of veteran actors like Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Jerry O’Connell, and Ving Rhames (as well as Hostel director Eli Roth), the film, while ridiculous, should provide plenty of (campy) fun.

Our second trailer is for the Joe Dante (Gremlins) directed adventure-thriller The Hole – also in 3D. The plot centers around “A pair of brothers [who] stumble upon a mysterious hole in their basement that leads to the darkest corridors of their fears and nightmares.”
The assertion that The Hole is a horror-thriller is a bit misleading since, as you’ll see from the trailer, it looks more like an adventure film with added thriller elements. The “horror” label doesn’t apply as far as I can see.
I wasn’t sure what to make of this film when I first heard about it, but I have to admit this trailer has me a bit more intrigued.

Last up we have a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds thriller, Buried – adding to the trailer and scene we posted a while back. The title does a good job of summing up the plot, but in case you want a few more details, here’s the official synopsis:
“Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.”

My immediate thought, when I first heard about Buried, was how could it possibly differ from Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 2 (where Uma Thurman’s Bride was buried alive)? However, the film sparked a fierce bidding war at Sundance and the teaser is fantastic – providing us with the feel of the movie while still giving away as little as possible (exactly what a good movie trailer should do).
