<i>Die Hard 5</i>, 201?<br> Bruce Willis was in town to promote </I>The Expendables</i>, but found time to mention that John McClane would likely be back for a fifth adventure. We loved the last one, so why not?

<i>Cowboys and Aliens</i>, July 29, 2011<br> Director Jon Favreau trotted out his stars -- Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell and Harrison Ford -- for the unveiling of some footage that was well received by those on hand, and threw a bone to those of us who couldn't make it, a pic of Daniel Craig as Zeke Johnson.

<i>Scott Pilgrim vs. The World</i>, Aug. 13<br> Our SPVTW fatigue is well documented, so we've stopped watching every clip that finds it way online, <a href="http://www.cinematical.com/2010/07/25/sdcc-new-scott-pilgrim-clip-finish-him/"target="_blank">but maybe you haven't...</a>

<i>Green Lantern</i>, June 17, 2011<br> Folks were understandably bummed out by this first look at our heroes costume, but director Martin Campbell appeared to have listened. He showed about three minutes of footage to fans, but no sign of the suit -- which Campbell assured was a work in progress.

<i>Super 8</i>, 2011<br> Talking about his upcoming collaboration with Steven Spielberg, JJ Abrams admitted they had not yet begun shooting. "My favorite thing about the movie though is that someone will go to the theater and see the trailer and hopefully go, oh my God, that looks bitchin', and have no idea they will be starring in it," he told fans. And he's right, <a href="http://www.nbcnewyork.com/blogs/popcornbiz/trailers/Here_s_a_Version_of_the__Super_8__Tariler_Not_Filmed_on_a_Phone_All__National_.html"target+"_blank">it does look bitchin'</a>.

<i>Drive Angry in 3D</i>, Feb. 11, 2011<br> Nic Cage growled, snarled, shot and raced his way through <a href="http://www.nbcnewyork.com/blogs/popcornbiz/Hell-Already-Is-Walking-the-Earth----Nic-Cage-Growls-Throughout-Drive-Angry-3D-Teaser-99225199.html"target="_blank">the first trailer</a> for his new "save a baby from Satan" epic.

<i>After Dark</i><br> Director Antoine Fuqua and Wesley Snipes worked together on <i>Brooklyn's Finest</I>, where they apparently discovered a common love of comic books, so they teamed up to create their own. This will almost certainly be made into a film.

<i>Punisher</i>, 201?<br> During Marvel's orgy at Comic-Con, the studio's big boss Kevin Feige let it be known that they still owned the vigilante's rights and were hoping to bring him back to the big screen sometime soon.

<i>Priest</i>, May 13, 2011<br> On the heels of <i>Legion</i>, Paul Bettany stars in yet another film in which he alone can save the world from a swarm of apocalyptic proportions, which <a href="http://priest-movie-trailer.blogspot.com/"target="_blank">dropped its first trailer</a>. He deserves better, though he is married to Jennifer Connelly, so that's something.

<i>Let Me In</i>, Oct. 1, 2010<br> The upcoming remake of the beloved Swedish vampire flick <i>Let the Right One In</i> starring Chloe Moretz brought a new trailer to Comic-Con, which we thoroughly dug.

<i>Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pts 1 & 2</i><br> Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy, was the sacrificial lamb served up to fans when Warner Bros. couldn't get any of the franchise's major stars to show. That said, folks were pleased with the footage.
