Transformers: Dark of the Moon
The action-packed trailer introduces a new line of transformers that have been lying dormant on the dark side of the moon and are awakened. Like the last two installments, a fight to save Earth ensues and seems pretty hopeless. Will Shia LaBeouf and the gang be able to save us again? Ya think?

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
Childhood fear proves to be legitimate in this new Katie Holmes vehicle. The trailer's creepy voices are scary enough, but the scares just start there. This definitely reminds us of why were once (and probably are again, thanks to this movie) afraid of the dark.
Release Date: August 26th
