Welcome to the trailer park: your weekly round-up

Welcome to CNN.com's Trailer Park! This is not the place for Winnebagos and Fleetwoods, but instead your one-stop shopping for the latest and greatest movie trailers out there. Whether they are on the big screen, internet or exclusively available to you here at CNN.com, each week I will bring you new, interesting, jaw-dropping, unusual or just plain crazy movie trailers available for your eye-gobbling goodness. As CNN's film producer I'm exposed to A LOT of movie trailers, and well, it's high time I started sharing them with all of you! So, let's get started!

When I first heard Disney was remaking "Tron" I was in San Diego at Comic-Con. A queasy feeling penetrated my gut. The 1982 original about a man who gets digitally broken down into a data stream by a computer software pirate seemed to hit the nail on the head the first time. So, why keep swinging the hammer, right? But, then I started chatting with "Tron Legacy's" stars, Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund, and well, the dynamic trio got me all excited about their version. I'm so easy! What do you think?

When Elizabeth Gilbert's book, "Eat Pray Love" hit store shelves it impressed so many readers in no time at all she was sitting on Oprah's sofa talking about it. Of course, Oprah's endorsement meant it became mandatory reading for all mankind, and so it's no surprise the autobiographical journey of one woman's international trek of self-love and healing would become a major motion picture. Bonus alert for Julia Roberts fans ~ the ultimate pretty woman plays Liz Gilbert! Here's a look.

It's not always big budget features that grab my attention. Just in time for Mothers Day, Focus Features plans to release a movie all about BABIES! Yes, Babies! Cute, adorable, innocent, perfect little babies! Think "March of the Penguins," but without Morgan Freeman yapping about cold, flightless birds. In this documentary camera crews follow the trials and tribulations for four tiny humans as they make their way into four corners of the Earth. Here's a peek at "Babies"..

    Some people should not be allowed to use a computer. So maybe you should go back to mowing the lawn. Lord. It's 2010 and you have no idea how to click on a link.

    Too bad only big name movie traiers are listed. One of the advantages of trailers is that you get to sample lesser known independent movies. For an awesome trailer, and movie, check out "Kill Speed."

    Which is dumber, overlooking the hyperlinks or feeling it necessary to tell him to click them after 10 other people have done so?

    The internet clueless aside, I have to say that while I have seen the trailer before, I am waiting with expectations for Tron Legacy. As for Eat Pray Love, have not heard of it but would be more interested in reading the book first and then consider. In any case, my only question is how good the 3D will be as in Avatar sense of things. Not to wow the senses, but draw one into the universe and forget its 3D.

    Tron Legacy is a sequel, not a remake.

    Jason must be using a black and white computer and hence can't see the blue links!

    Jason & Steve, you guys must be new to the internet. Like EVERYONE else noted, click the little blue words that make up the movie names, then leave another comment.

    Really? a dozen people had to tell Jason they were hyperlinks? I mean I know he started this thing off with a boneheaded statement but c'mon.

    Jason –
    Click on the movie titles where they appear in the article and you will be directed to the trailers.

    I'm pretty sure reporters / producers should get the names of the people they write of correct. Tron is with Olivia Wilde, not Wylde. I know that shorthand texting is seemingly taking over the grammatical world, but checking facts and spelling is still lesson number one in high school journalism class. Fortunately for JD, this is happening repeatedly; unfortunately for JD, he's the one I finally decided to pick on.

    Welcome to the trailer park. Park anywhere you like, don't worry there's plenty of room cuz there are no trailers here. Pretty lame CNN.

    Jason, All you have to do is click on the title of the movie in the article, and it takes you to the video/or trailer, depending on the link.

    Use the internet much? Welcome to hyperlinks – try the blue text – where it says the name of the film – e.g. "Babies" – just click that and it will take you to the trailer.

    Jason,
    See those dark blue words in the article? Those are called "links." When you point your mouse on them and click the left button, it takes you to the locations of those videos so that you can watch them. :) Try it! It's fun!

    All you have to do is click on the words in blue and they take you to the trailers. Worked for me!

    The links to the trailers are within the paragraphs. Take another look.

    Hey Jason in North Hollywood – Did you ever think about clicking on the blue word(s) which titles the Movie?

    I gotta agree with Jason on this one. Kind of embarrassing.

    Jason ... don't be so quick to be a hater. All you have to do is "click" on the movie's name in each paragraph and it then pulls up the corresponding trailer.

    People need to take the time to look before they judge and try to sound cool ...

    I don't get it – they call it a trailer park and i see they mention a movie – but they forgot to include the actual trailers they write about. CNN just leave it to rottentomatoes.com since they talk about the trailers and then you can watch them...
