Where the Wild Things AreThis year gave us some great movies, as well as some fantastic movie trailers.

When you think about it, a trailer has a big job to do. It has to grab us with a few short clips, tell us what the movie's about, and make us want to gallop to the theater and plop down our hard-earned cash for a couple hours of entertainment. Even better if we call our friends on the way home and tell them to go see the movie.

It's a tall order, and not every trailer is up to the task. But the ones who get it right shine big time. Here are our picks for the top ten movie trailers of 2009.
