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. We’ve got trailers from 300: Rise Of An Empire, Child Of God, The Raid 2: Berandal, Better Living Through Chemistry, and Welcome to the Jungle. Hit the jump to see them all.
300: Rise Of An Empire
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
Child Of God
Directed by James Franco follows a dispossessed, violent man whose life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.
The Raid 2
The sequel to the action packed hit of 2012, which will be making its big screen debut at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, has a brand new full-length trailer. Unlike the first one which set the tone, this new trailer focuses on the story that will force Rama (Iko Uwais) to infiltrate a crime syndicate to protect his family and uncover the corruption within his own police force. The Raid 2: Berandal opens in theaters on March 3, 2014.
Better Living Through Chemistry
A small town pharmacist’s uneventful life turns into a walk on the wild side when he embarks on a drug-and-alcohol fueled affair with a seductive customer in this murderously funny dark comedy starring Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde.
Welcome To The Jungle
Chris (Adam Brody) is a workplace weakling who doesn’t have the courage to stand up to the slick office bully, Phil (Rob Huebel), who steals all his ideas, and he has yet to muster the courage to ask out cute HR manager, Lisa (Megan Boone). Even Chris’ only friend, Jared (Eric Edelstein), a sarcastic slacker IT guy who secretly monitors everyone’s porn intake, slams Chris for being a sissy. But when a team-building “wilderness seminar” goes horribly wrong, and unhinged ex-marine teambuilding coach Storm Rothchild (Jean-Claude Van Damme) gets mauled by a tiger, Chris and his co-workers find themselves stranded on a deserted tropical island with no rescue in sight – and someone’s going to have to step up and take charge.
