Trailers Weekly is a feature in which we bring you the most popular and talked about trailers of the week. Sharing trailers is a classic viral practice, and trailers are still the most mainstream way for people to learn about movies. This week we got the international trailer for The Dictator and the red-band trailer for American Reunion. We also got trailers for Safety Not Guaranteed, ParaNorman, and Foosball. Hit the jump to check them out

The Dictator
Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest comedy hasn’t revealed any detailed plots about the movie until now. As you can see, the movie will be some sort of dark and twisted fish out of water story. Still plenty of laughs, but I wonder how long it can last.

American Reunion
These American Reunion posters have been pretty much the same through and through. Jim smashing his laptop on his penis, Stiffer awakening his inner pedophile, and all sorts of crazy sex crazed antics. But some how it still manages to get a laugh of too.

Rise of the Guardians
When you get a movie that is executively produced by Guillermo del Toro, you know that you are going to get some fantastic visuals. That is the case with Rise of the Guardians, a movie that follows mythical figures like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Sand Man, and the Tooth Fairy, who band together to protect our children.

Safety Not Guaranteed
Those crazy ads that you see in the papers have been transformed into a concept for a movie. Even though the 2012 Sundance Film Festival hit looks comical, it feels heartwarming. The movie stars Aubery Plaza and Mark Duplass.

We got one more trailer for ParaNorman. The trailer does feature some new footage from the movie, but if you still have no interest in watching this movie (and how could you not have any) after watching the last two trailers, then I doubt you will be watching this animated whimsy horror flick.

A trailer for Juan Jose Campanella’s animated film Foosball has gone online. And if you are tired of the toys and garden gnomes coming to life movies, then why not foosball figures. The movie has a pretty standard premise, the game of foosball can save the protagonist’s town, but its how they approach it that looks pretty cool. Check it out.
