We rate the latest movie trailers

Beowulf
The cast is lush: Angelina Jolie (digging out her faux-exotic Alexander accent), Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Ray Winstone. The idea of a grown-up cartoon is thrilling. But why does this look like the opening credits for a PS3 game? B

Lust, Caution
Once again, Ang Lee charts the mysteries of love and duty. In occupied Shanghai, a peasant girl must seduce and destroy Tony Leung, who looks like someone important. Hard to tell, since there’s no dialogue. Just beautiful, swirling images. A

The Darjeeling Limited
It’s as if you can feel the strain: ”You will love the crazy pan-global Wes Andersonian forced whimsy!” If three brothers (Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman) lost in India finding each other is your thing, then yay. If not, then C+.

Death Sentence
When did Kevin Bacon turn into the kind of actor who could convincingly play ”scary badass”? Because I’m a little afraid of him as a father on the vigilante path after the death of his son. Repeat: bald Bacon = frightening. B+
