The iTunes Movie Trailer home page has been brimming with “coming soon”-ers recently. After some heavy sifting through the sci-fi thrillers and the sappy rom-coms, we couldn’t be more excited by the trailers of these five films that offer a little bit of everything, from feel-good drama to the eternal crowd pleaser that needs but two words to sum up its greatness. Animated. Elves. Check out the following trailers and decide for which of these flicks you’ll be standing in line on opening night!
