You know things are getting a bit strange when, instead of featuring upcoming movies, we're talking about upcoming trailers for upcoming movies. Coming Soon provides us with a schedule that lists which trailers are playing when and in front of which movies. Keep in mind, some of the trailers will only play before 35MM prints, while others will play before digital -- and so the schedule doesn't necessarily mean you will see those exact trailers play in your local theaters.
Needless to say, within the next two weeks, we'll be provided with a bigger taste of those much-anticipated films arriving in theaters next summer. Scheduled to run in front of Eragon is the first trailer for Live Free of Die Hard (aka Die Hard 4). Now, we originally thought it was set to debut this weekend, but apparently things got pushed back. Also in front of Eragon, folks can expect to see a preview for Shrek the Third. Yay!
However, the lineup in front of Night at the Museum is a lot more impressive. Before folks get a chance to watch Ben Stiller run around the Museum of Natural History while all of the exhibits come to life and subsequently make his new job a living nightmare, you'll be able to feast upon previews of Ocean's Thirteen, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Rush Hour 3and the third teaser for The Simpson's Movie. Also, though we're not sure which films will carry them, there's a good chance we'll see new trailers for Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and The Bourne Ultimatum before the end of the year. Of course, once any of these trailers arrive online, Cinematical will immediately let you know ... because we care. Yup, it's definitely that time of year again -- screw Santa, summer is right around the corner.
