Always show up in time to see the trailers, it's the polite thing to do..

Here is a snapshot of the trailers playing today when I saw "Skyline"

-I Am Number Four - Blah. Based on the preview only, I will say it is just another movie about young, attractive people with super-powers of some sort.

-The Green Hornet - I'm biased here because I knew I wanted to see this movie before even the first glimpse. I was so intrigued by the casting of Seth Rogen as a super hero of any type.

-Gulliver's Travels - The jury is out on this one for me. It's such safe territory for Jack Black with a blend of his delivery and physical comedy that we've seen so many times before.

-Sanctum - nothing about this preview says "follow up to the highest grossing movie of all time" for producer James Cameron but he's James Cameron; so I'm sure this will be a blockbuster.

I'll just touch on Meet the Fockers III or whatever it's called but not make you watch the trailer.  The first in this franchise was genuinely funny but they should have stopped there. I am predicting the third to be painful in a way that cannot be numbed by any amount of buttery popcorn or sugary drink.
