Yah, how do I get back to New York?

(click through from RSS to see trailers)
I tend to be in the dark about most movies because they're advertised to the, um, general public, and not me. (Douchebag alert.) Like they have a million commercials, but I fast forward all my commercials, or they're on the radio, but I listen to MuggleCast all the time. So it's only when movie enters into the very limited sphere of my Google Reader that I realize it's time to oooh and ahhhh and hunt down the trailer.

Do you guys watch trailers at Apple Trailers? That's where I go after I've seen a trailer at the movies and want to watch again. I used to just google for them but the internet morphed in the past few years so there are now millions of phantom web pages trying to take advantage of lazy googlers. This is why we can't have anything nice.

When I get to Apple Trailers, I'm suddenly overwhelmed by alllllll the mooooooovies I want to seeeeee. Let's dwelve in, shall we? (Sadly, Apple Trailers doesn't do embed, which means I have to do the googling ANYWAY. SIGH. ALL FOR YOU GUYS.)

Love and Other Drugs
Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway share the big screen again, this time without all the closet-angst.

Wow. That's an entirely different trailer than the one at Apple. Now I feel as though I've seen the entire movie. And I still want to go pay to see it. I mean, they're so cute, right? And we get a little bit of history and background on the pharmaceutical industry. Plus, this is actually realistic: reps do really look like Jake. Coming to you November 24.

The Social Network
Guys! It's a movie about Facebook! JT! Rashida Jones! Mark Zuckerberg! "Your best friend is suing you!" DRAMA! Coming to you October 1.

The Romantics
The movie I'm most anticipating this fall!

I just... this cast, this concept. I want to love it so much. In limited release September 10.

Anne Hathaway's hair is beyond amazing in that movie.

Abigail, you posted the Love & Other Drugs trailer three times. You must really want to see that movie! It looks pretty decent, actually.

I am extremely excited to see The Social Network. I'll watch anything that Aaron Sorkin writes or that David Fincher directs, so putting them both together is like some kind of magical movie amazingness for me. Plus, the choral version of 'Creep' in the trailer gives me chills.

What! UGH. Going back to Trailer Addict now to give them a piece of my mind.

Jennie - Same here! Can't see videos or pics when at work, even though I'm looking ON MY OWN TIME.

This made me laugh so hard: This is why we can't have anything nice.
