Surf over to Moviefone for a look at the second full-length trailer for Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Can’t say as this one works any better (or, to be fair, worse) than the first one. It still get the feeling that Disney is trying way way to hard to position this as the next huge fantasy franchise. The effects don’t look all that great as well. Where it does look like they’re doing a good job is in making this family-friendly, with the inclusion of the kids. Seems to me they’re trying to split the marketing difference between Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
The trailer, as well as the interactive map I linked to earlier, being on AOL’s Moviefone are part of an exclusive partnership Dsney signed with AOL. The suddenly in-demand-by-everyone portal will be the home to a host of Narnia-related content. Not only will the partnership include online material but will have AOL sending out CD-ROMs with Narnia wallpaper, buddy icons and other interactive material.

Nathan Fillion, the once and future Capt. Mal Reynolds stars in his first big-screen flick after the wonderful but underperforming Serenity. Slither looks to be a horror-comedy that might just be enough to get me to see it. Instead of mining the WB’s talent roster for stars they actually seemed to have cast actors who could sell the comedic aspects of the movie. Chek out the trailer here.
Scroll down to “TV Spot 3” on this page at ComingSoon to view the new TV spot for Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire. It’s short and emphasizes the tournament that seems to be at the center of the story for this installment. If you’re interested in the continuing adventures of the boy wizard check it out.
