Trailers: Django Unchained, Ice Age, 360, Wreck It Ralph, Flight

Here is the latest batch of new trailers; top of the list is Quentin Tarantino's latest, Django Unchained due out Christmas Day:
Due out in July is the fourth installment of Ice Age: Continental Drift:
Wreck It Ralph from Disney is being released in November; I have some instinct issues with the Ice Age trailer and this one, but I am going to save them for now:
Denzel Washington's newest flick, Flight, due out in November, may not be in time for the election, however, we can understand the symbols now. If you take the airplane to be the economy (which was done in the Liam Neeson thriller The Grey), then this is about President Obama's handling of the economy and how, maybe he's guilty of some things, but he's "The only one who could have landed that plane."  It's interesting, though, the part about going to jail...
360, with an all-star cast, being released next month in France, is the story of many different people effected by intersecting relationships:
The Invisible War is about our military, which I love and am grateful for with all my heart; I support our troops and their families completely; but no one has the right to commit a crime and get away with it, especially when those are sex crimes. Female soldiers risk their lives equally, so they should have equal rights and access to justice but this documentary suggests that it is seriously being corrupted:
Rock Of Ages opens this weekend in theaters; what am I hoping for? That the "anything you want" is what you need mentality presented in the opening lines of the trailer will be debunked as being unsustainable and self-destructive. Essentially, that's the kind of vehicle I see in the Democratic party, (not that this will be a Democrat film, even if it does convey that kind of message) but the "church ladies" being led by Catherine Zeta Jones will undoubtedly look ridiculous and that will be intentional:
