Have you ever gotten lost in the dark black hole that is movie trailers on Youtube? That is me. All the time. It means I already know all the movies during the previews at the movie theatre and am excited about the obscure indie films recently added to Netflix. Here are a few of the interesting trailers I found for upcoming movies you can start getting excited about.
