Best/Worst Movie Promos of the Week: Only the Best for the Holidays from ‘Prometheus’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rise’

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, maybe not for our worst three movie promos of the week, but at least they still have time to kick things up a notch before their releases.

However, even though there was an obvious bottom three this time around, the promotional material released this past week has generally been pretty solid. Of course the big news is the debut of the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and, even as someone who wasn’t exactly caught up in The Lord of the Rings craze, An Unexpected Journey is looking pretty good. In other big budget, CGI-to-the-max news, we also got the trailer for Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer and the combination of a doe-eyed Nicholas Hoult plus some wicked flaming tree throwing giants should make for a blast of an adventure.

In the weird but intriguing zone, we’ve got the new international trailer for This Must Be The Place. I get the sense that Sean Penn’s character will likely drive me nuts within minutes, but this trailer is just odd enough that it leave you needing to know more. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen finds itself in a similar situation with well-known leads taking a dip in a rather unusual story. I used to think the title, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, had figurative meaning, but, no, it quite literally refers to Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
