We’re in that funky few months of the year when all of the good summer blockbuster releases are long gone, the crap that wasn’t nearly good enough to be a summer blockbuster has been shown and quickly spit out, and the holiday season of award-worthy movies seems so far away. But now is the time for the best of the best trailers to start trickling out of the web, in anticipation of those awesome end-of-year flicks. Here are the best movie trailers and clips released this week.
Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams
Truth be told, we’ve kind of been in need of a solid motivational sports flick for a while now, and this street-guy-turned-boxer story looks like it could be it. Here’s hoping we get at least four Bale-outs from Christian.

The Saw movies have become an annual Halloween tradition at this point. Seven movies later, people are still flocking to the theaters to see the same plotline projected every year, and now it will finally be in 3-D. Not all filmmakers use 3-D the correct way, but it looks like this film might just pull it off.
