Trailers Weekly: “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Rango”, “Fast Five”, “Water For Elephants”, “The Tree of Life”, “Limitless”, and “Paul”

by Dan Koelsch

Trailers Weekly is a feature in which we bring you the most popular and talked about trailers of the week. Sharing trailers is a classic viral practice, and trailers are still the most mainstream way for people to learn about movies. This week, we have a robust list of new trailers, so take a look after the break.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

The week started off with the much-anticipated first trailer for Disney’s 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Opens in the US on May 20th, 2011.



Rango

Johnny Depp movies saturated the week in trailers, as we got the second full trailer for the Nickelodeon animated comedy. Opens in the US on March 4th, 2011.



Fast Five

The fifth film in the Fast and the Furious franchise hits hard with its first trailer featuring characters from several of the films in the series. Opens in the US on April 29th, 2011.



Water for Elephants

This period piece featuring Elle Woods and Edward Cullen looks promising in its first trailer, especially with Colonel Hans Landa in there as well. Opens in the US on April 15th, 2011.



The Tree of Life

I honestly have no idea what this is about. Opens in the US on May 27th, 2011.



Limitless

Hopefully you already saw the viral video for this movie, as well as the mailer we got. This is the first official trailer. Opens in the US on March 18th, 2011.



Paul

I first saw footage of this at Universal’s Comic-Con panel, and I was impressed. The second trailer (after the teaser) doesn’t change my mind. Opens in the US also on March 18th, 2011.
