This Cartoon 'Community' Trailer Is Full of Expository Devices

Here's a trailer for the new Dan Harmon-helmed, Chevy Chase-less fifth season of Community, which works under the guise of a cheery holiday cartoon but is really full of overly meta explanations and references about the crappy scheduling NBC gave them for their first few episodes thanks to the Olympics. Community premieres for a full hour on January 2nd, then after that…well, it's complicated, just watch the trailer.

Watch a Remix Trailer for the New 'Community' Season

Community's fourth season starts up in two weeks on Thursday, February 7th, and NBC (probably) won't be changing the premiere date last-minute again. Here's a fun new remix trailer to promote the new season, which ends with a quote from Troy and Abed, "You tried to destroy us but you only made us more awesome," that almost seems like a direct message to the network.

The Trailer for the Kay Cannon Scripted 'Pitch Perfect' Is Pitch Solid

There are some trailers where you can just hear the studio executives' conversation:

Exec 1: "Ok, Glee is really popular with kids. Am I saying that right, "kids?" What should we do?" Exec 2: "There's this book called Pitch Perfect that's just like Bring It On, but, wait for it, with singing!" Exec 3: "Who will be in it?" Exec 4: "Anna Kendrick?" Exec 1 and 2: "Perfect!" Exec 3: "Pitch Perfect." Exex 1, 2, 3, 4: "Hahahahahahahahah" [Then they laugh and throw money at each other for eternity]

However, 30 Rock writer and all-around funny person, Kay Cannon wrote it, so it could/should be better than expected. At minimum, you might [...]

The First Teaser for Chris Lilley's Angry Boys Should Get You Excited

Chris Lilley, creator and star of the amazing Summer Heights High, is returning to HBO this summer with a new series: Angry Boys. Like Summer Heights High, Lilley plays multiple characters in it, including "a pair of co-dependent brothers, a former surfing great, an untalented rapper, a prison guard grandma and an overprotective Asian mother." Oh god, this show cannot come soon enough.

Watch the Trailer for Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

Here's trailer for Wes Anderson's upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel, which will have to hold us over until it's released in March. The movie follow Ralph Fiennes as Gustave H, a concierge at a fancy hotel who befriends a lobby boy. It's got an incredible cast, including Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, and of course, Bill Murray.

Ricky Gervais Will Teach You English with the Help of an Idiot

As Ricky says, "This is the worst English lesson ever." It might not teach anyone English, but it might remind people of the joy of listening to the blabbering nonsense of a bonehead. Wait, so what does "where" mean? And what does "where" mean? Hopefully we'll get some answers on August 14, when the show gets released for free on iTunes.

Won't Somebody Think Of The Children In The Red-Band American Reunion Trailer?

Don't you hate it when you accidentally throw your lubed-up ejaculate sock on your toddler's head? Doh-oh-oh! America's obsession with the size, location and relative humiliation level of Jason Biggs' orgasm continues with the masturbation-filled American Reunion trailer. Seriously, why kids always gotta be interrupting people when they're trying to cum? I also appreciate the nod to gender equality; It's high time we as a society acknowledge that both husbands and wives would rather jerk-off alone in their own bubble of erotic despair than have sex with their spouses.

Check Out the First Trailer for Super, Rainn Wilson's Superhero Dark Comedy

Here's the first trailer for Super, James Gunn's dark comedy starring Rainn Wilson about a man who hits rock bottom and decides to become an ultra-violent super hero.

Then with the help of a trusty wrench, Frank wages a one man war on crime. Libby (Ellen Page), a local comic book store employee, transforms herself into a superheroine named “Boltie” and becomes Frank’s sidekick. The two then team up to take Jacques down.

Look for it in theaters [...]

Watch the Trailer for Seth Meyers's Animated Series 'The Awesomes'

The Awesomes, a new animated web series created by Seth Meyers and former SNL producer Mike Shoemaker, is set to premiere on Hulu August 1st, and the trailer and website just went live today. Produced by Lorne Michaels via his company Broadway Video, the show follows the greatest superhero team in history after all of their best members leave. The main voice cast is made up of Meyers, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Taran Killam, Bobby Lee, Ike Barinholtz, Bill Hader, Rachel Dratch, and SNL writers Paula Pell and Emily Spivey. Meyers and Shoemaker started developing the show in 2006, sold it to MTV in 2009, jumped to Hulu [...]

The Trailer for 'NTSF:SD:SUV' Is Jam-Packed with Awesome

There's so much amazingness in this trailer, one is compelled to just list things until the cows come home. (Though, I imagine cattle ranchers have actual work to do, so they can't listicle it up like they were in High Fidelity.) Ok, without further ado, listing: Max Greenfield has three arms, a robot sticks a still bloody human face over its own face, Aziz looks like he's about to do something real weird, a jacket has no pockets, and Alison Brie gets punched in the face. Luckily, the show returns for a second season next Thursday, so any more listing is probably superfluous.

Kristen Wiig Channels the Führer in the Bridesmaids Red Band Trailer

In case anybody is still on the fence about ponying up $12.50 to see it in theaters, the Bridesmaids red band trailer promises all the filthy cursing and proposed fuck-a-thons the human mind could desire. Some new tidbits include Wiig's Hitler impression (historically accurate), Wendi McLendon-Covey's tale of domestic terror (devastating) and the intensely acrobatic, extremely goofy love-making skills of one Mr. Jon Hamm (why, why, why would anyone not see this movie?). The Bridesmaids character posters are less revealing, though if I ever have room in my heart for more than one wild card, Melissa McCarthy will be it.

First Trailer for David Cross's Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret

Here's the first trailer for The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, the David Cross vehicle coming to IFC that reunites him with Will Arnett. Sure, they're also being reunited in Running Wilde, but that one has Arnett as a lead with Cross as a supporting character, Todd Margaret is the opposite. Gotta keep these Arrested Development reunions fresh!
