Ocean's Thirteen

I Think I Love My Wife
In a departure from his last film as a director, Head of State, Chris Rock's latest — about a guy teetering on cheating — looks like a real movie. Even looks funny. But for all you engaged folk out there...this trailer is gonna cause you problems. B

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Taking a cue from The Devil Wears Prada's preview, this spot is just a snatch of a scene, with a Fantastic wedding interrupted by that cosmic boarder and the Human Torch giving city-spanning chase. Not as effective as Prada, but still kinda sweet. B
