Trailer Time: Arthur, Bridesmaids, Something Borrowed, Hop and The Hangover Part II

First look at the trailer for the 1981 remake of Dudley Moore's Arthur. This time around the man-child heir to a billion dollar empire is played by comedian Russell Brand. Also with him in the film are Helen Mirren as his nanny/caretaker, Jennifer Garner as the heiress he's supposed to marry and Greta Gerwig as the woman he falls in love with. The trailer was quite amusing and I hope this movie does not disappoint. It has the starcast to succeed.

From producer Judd Apatow and director Paul Feig comes Bridesmaids a complete comedy aimed at women. Did I hear that right? The guys behind Knocked Up, Superbad, Pineapple Express and Forgetting Sarah Marshall are actually making women the focus of the film. Written and starring Kirsten Wiig (SNL), the film is about the members of bridal party who get together for the bride's (Maya Rudolph) wedding. This has great comic pedigree, I'm really looking forward to this.

Based on the book by Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed takes a look at the friendship of best friends Darcy (Kate Hudson) and Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin). As evident from the trailer, what happens when the good friend starts to have feelings for her best friend's fiance? Typical rom-com which Hudson is known for. Colin Egglesfield and John Krasinski are also part of the cast.

Another Russell Brand feature except this time, he's the Easter Bunny. No, really! From the studio that brought Despicable Me, Hop shows how E.B (short for the Easter Bunny) doesn't really want to fulfill his destiny but instead just wants to play the drums. While trying to make it in Hollywood, he runs into Fred (James Marsden) and Samantha (Kaley Cuoco). This looks great, very funny. E.B is adorable.

And finally, the movie sequel we all have been waiting for, The Hangover Part II. They were outrageous the first time around. What will they do next? The whole gang is back but this time the action has moved to Bangkok, Thailand. We now know there's a monkey involved somehow and Ed Helms get a face tattoo. I can't wait to see this film.
