By
'Snitch' trailer still
Among this week's big new trailers are a pair of eagerly-awaited animated movies, a fresh look at Bryan Singer's fantasy epic Jack the Giant Slayer and a romantic comedy that unites Rafe Spall with Bridesmaids star Rose Byrne. For those who fancy more of an adrenaline shot then there's the latest fast-paced thriller from Dwayne Johnson to quench your thirst.

Digital Spy takes a look at 5 of this week's top trailers below...

'Despicable Me 2' Thanksgiving teaser
As Thanksgiving turkeys get devoured across America, those yellow minions from Despicable Me return for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it teaser trailer. The critters are seen chasing a feathered friend across the screen with a mace and axe. Despicable Me 2, which opens next summer, sees Steve Carell return to play Gru in a voice cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Al Pacino and Steve Coogan.



Colin Farrell, Beyoncé, Amanda Seyfried voice 'Epic'
Blue Sky Studios's latest animation has a touch of Honey, I Shrunk The Kids-meets-Avatar about it as a teenage girl gets miniaturised and sent deep into a secret jungle world. Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Beyoncé, Colin Farrell and Christoph Waltz add some star power to the voice cast, while the story takes inspiration from William Joyce's (Rise of the Guardians) book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs.


Bryan Singer's 'Jack the Giant Slayer'
Bryan Singer's long-in-the-making fairytale has switched titles from Jack the Giant Killer to Jack the Giant Slayer and unveiled a brand new trailer this week. Showcasing some dazzling visual effects and a suitably wide-eyed performance from Nicholas Hoult, this looks like it could be one of the surprise blockbusters of 2013. With superhero flicks Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 dominating the summer, Jack might well be a welcome antidote.


'I Give It A Year': Rafe Spall, Rose Byrne get hitched
After starring in US wedding comedy Bridesmaids, Rose Byrne heads across the Atlantic to get hitched to Rafe Spall in I Give It A Year. Sacha Baron Cohen's frequent collaborator Dan Mazer makes his directorial debut on the film, which zeroes in on the ups and downs of a couple in the first year of their marriage. The film boasts an impressive supporting cast of Anna Faris, Simon Baker, Minnie Driver, Olivia Colman and Stephen Merchant.


Dwayne Johnson fights for his son's freedom in 'Snitch'
Dwayne Johnson stars as a man who goes undercover to bring down drug lords and free his son from prison in this high-octane thriller. Messing with the artist occasionally known as The Rock is never a good idea at the best of times, so expect running, jumping, punching and gun-firing aplenty in Snitch.
