Movie trailer round-up: Robots, iron fists and a three-boobed prostitute

Wow, Robot & Frank looks like when Joey from Friends starred in Mac & Cheese, but with added sappiness. Warning: This is one of those trailers that seems to give away the entire film. Except for the part when the robot says "Frank, what is this thing you humans call...love?"
Takashi Miike's new film, Hara-Kiri: Death Of A Samurai, looks like the kind of sweeping, majestic martial arts film that deserves to be remembered with the same critical acclaim as House Of The Flying Daggers and Rush Hour.
The new Total Recall trailer wins this week's round-up for obvious reasons. You're not going to find a three-boobed prostitute in the new Dark Knight Rises TV spot are you? (*quickly scrolls down and checks*)
Silver Linings Playbook proves that mentally-ill people are funny. And sweet. But mostly funny.
From the creators of Ice Age and Rio comes this trailer for new animated film Epic, which looks like someone made a music video for FernGully.
Polio sufferer John Hawkes sets out to lose his virginity to sex therapist Helen Hunt in The Sessions. Now watch this trailer and think about how different the film would have turned out if it was directed by The Farrelly Brothers.
The new The Dark Knight Rises TV spot. Nope, no three-boobed prostitute here.
The guy behind The OC and Gossip Girl makes his directorial debut with Fun Size. Yup.
The Man With The Iron Fists stars Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu and A MAN WITH IRON FISTS. Holy shit, this looks awesome.
This Easy Money trailer namechecks Martin Scorsese and Stieg Larsson, so it has to be good.
I counted that Kevin James falls over seven times in this trailer for MMA comedy Here Comes The Boom. Seven.
Well, Red Hook Summer certainly looks like a Spike Lee film, doesn't it?
Forget Matthew Fox's unrecognisable performance as sadistic badass in Alex Cross, I'm more looking forward to seeing the other side of Tyler Perry's role-swap experiment and finding out how Morgan Freeman fares in the next Madea movie.
Well, Frankenweenie certainly looks like a Tim Burton film, doesn't it? In fact, it looks like a very specific Tim Burton film.
Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away. In 3D, so you can pretend you're cultured enough to see a live show.
FACT: When I went to New York last year, I came across signs in the street saying that filming was scheduled there for Richard Gere's new film, Arbitrage. Hey, I didn't say it was a fun fact.
Finally, I don't usually put Blu-ray trailers in here, but this new one for the collection of Marvel films leading up to and including Avengers Assemble looks pretty cool. It's just a shame they're calling it Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled. Can you imagine a kid asking for that at their local HMV store? I've already forgotten the order in which those words are supposed to go.
