I just don’t have it in me to subject you to a trade round-up this week. Sure, in the grand scheme of things, news happened. But I’m not going to insult your tastes or waste my time by relaying that James Caan left the David O. Russell movie he was shooting after a fight with the contentious director, or going into any detail at all on the fact that Bai Ling has joined the Crank sequel. I don’t even know what role she’ll play; all I saw was the headline before I blacked out.

So this week I’ve got nothing but trailers. Don’t worry; for those of you looking for your daily fix when it comes to something to bitch about, the round-up will return in this slot next week. But for now, just sit back, watch a few clips, and relax:

First up this morning is the latest trailer for Prince Caspian, due out May 9. The previous film in the Narnia series, 2005’s The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, was a surprisingly decent family fantasy movie, and this one looks to be on par:

Next is the clip for Henry Poole Is Here, a drama starring Luke Wilson about a man who learns to deal with faith and local celebrity when people claim to see the face of Jesus in a stain on his wall. It’s out July 25:

Here’s the red-band trailer for Hamlet 2. It was attached to my screening of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which meant I had the catchy and probably more than a little blasphemous “Rock Me Sexy Jesus” in my head all day. It hits theaters August 22:

Also in the world of red-band previews, here’s the clip for The Babysitters, set for a May 9 release, about a high school girl who starts turning tricks to earn extra cash. And it’s a comedy! Just kidding. It’s a pretty bleak-looking drama:

Young People Fucking. Out sometime this summer. I don’t quite know what else to add:

This isn’t a movie trailer, but a promo for an online series called “Flipper Nation.” Enjoy:

I’ll cap things off today with a pair of trailers for films that might prove hard to find. First up is American Fork, a painful-looking comedy that’s played a variety of festivals but as yet doesn’t have a set release date:

And here’s the clip for Shotgun Stories, which saw a limited release in March but will probably have to wait until DVD to find an audience:
