When we first heard that Jake Gyllenhaal was starring in Nightcrawler, we figured it was part of the Marvel superhero franchise. We were way off. Completely unrelated to comics, it’s about a character named Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. It appears that Lou isn’t the most mentally stable guy, and Gyllenhaal reportedly lost around 20 lbs for the role. Nightcrawler hits theaters October 17th.
It may have been 20 years since their adventure to Aspen, but Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are back and dumber than ever in Dumb and Dumber To . From the trailer it looks like it’ll be a little more slapstick and a little less witty than the original, but at least the Mutt Cutts Shaggin’ Wagon is back. Hitting theaters November 14th.

Megan Fox as April O’Neil?? Sign us up!! Check out the trailer to the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie, or “TMNT” as us cool kids used to call it in the late ’80s-early 90′s. Also starring Will Arnett, the kick-ass turtles hit theaters on August 8th.
The Red Band Trailer for Bad Words is crude, inappropriate, off-colored, and friggin’ hilarious. Usually cast as the sensible good-guy, we’re looking forward to seeing Jason Bateman (who also directs) be a grade-A asshole as he torments his way through the spelling bee circuit. Hitting theaters March 28th.
