A few new trailers are circulating this week, including clips from the latest feature film from Spike Lee, in which the director heads back to Brooklyn, David O. Russell's first movie since "The Fighter," and a female party movie for the teen crowd. Check out the trailers and tell us what you think.
Twenty-three years after "Do the Right Thing," Spike Lee dusts off Mookie as a peripheral character in the new Brooklyn tale "Red Hook Summer." A young boy from Atlanta comes to the borough to be with his grandfather, a pushy bishop. The film will have a limited release starting August 10.
After "The Fighter," director David O. Russell returns with "Silver Linings Playbook," based on the novel by Matthew Quick. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence team up as two spiraling eccentrics who make a deal to help each other, while Robert De Niro, Jackie Weaver, and Chris Tucker fill out the lineup. The movie is set for a November 21 release.
Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice tries her hand at a party night hijinks movie in "Fun Size," which looks to be a softer, female-centered "Superbad." It opens October 26.
