The movie studios are releasing multiple trailers for coming attractions these days and this week we’re featuring four new previews from movies that already released previews that we’ve featured here at

First up is for our pick as the most awaited movie this year.  We’ve seen a few trailers already but beginning this week–finally–is the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Bruce Willis as Joe Colton, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Ray Park.  We could watch this newest preview featuring Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes over and over.  Is this some new kind of parkour?

G.I. Joe: Retaliation begins this Thursday, March 28, 2013.

Next up is a flick we’ve seen previewed over and over–Iron Man 3.  It has a fun new movie poster, too (above).  The international preview is pretty long as previews go and reveals more footage of Ben Kingsley’s villain Mandarin than previously released.  Compared to the first Iron Man film and Robert Downey, Jr.’s role as Tony Stark in The Avengers, Iron Man 2 was a pretty weak entry in the Marvel superhero universe.  So our expectations are in check.   But this sequel is expected to unveil nearly every version of the Iron Man armor from the Marvel Comics archive, so this could be a lot of fun.  Here’s one of two new previews:

Iron Men drones?  Where can we get one?  Here’s the shorter TV ad also just released:

Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3, 2013.

We have yet another Star Trek Into Darkness preview, this time furthering our inklings that Benedict Cumberbatch may be portraying Khan in this new entry in the Star Trek franchise and finally giving us a glimpse of RoboCop’s Peter Weller as a Federation admiral, Admiral Marcus, Captain Kirk’s son’s grandfather in the original timeline.

No doubt this May 17, 2013, release will be a contender for the box office hit of the year.

Last up is Brad Pitt in the apocalyptic zombie film based on the novel, World War Z.  this is the first preview of the film that didn’t make me cringe at the fluidity of mass zombies in every big action scene.  It actually looks like Pitt may have a fleshed out (ahem) character to work with here. Here’s the newest preview:

World War Z shambles into theaters June 21, 2013.

Zombies, sci-fi, superheroes and action films–there’s something for everyone coming soon to a theater near you.
