This week's trailer watch takes a look at hot sequels, and new comedies. Catch the first glimpse of Kung Fu Panda 2. Check out Jeff Bridges, young and old, in the latest TRON: Legacy trailer. Martin Lawrence goes back in drag. Plus, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston just go with it, while the Farrelly Brothers need to see your hall pass.

Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom
Director: Jennifer Yuh
Cast: Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen

Attached to Megamind, in either 2D or 3D (depending on how you see the movie) is the teaser for DreamWorks' follow up to their hugely successful 2008 CGI adventure. Can you beat Po (Jack Black's character) in a staring contest? Take the challenge and watch!

TRON: Legacy
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde

The latest trailer for Disney's TRON: Legacy takes us deeper into the relationship between Kevin Flynn and his son Sam--played by Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund (Eragon), respectively--and the catalyst for Sam's entrance into the world his dad built. It's worth a watch, especially to see Jeff Bridges look as he did circa 1982.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
Director: John Whitesell
Cast: Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson

It's been four years since Martin Lawrence donned a fat suit and a floral dress, but he's back, and he's taking Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) along in the third installment to the Big Momma franchise. Just as the title suggests, Jackson is playing Lawrence's stepson, as the two go undercover at an all-girls college.

Just Go With It
Director: Dennis Dugan
Cast: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker

Adam Sandler's last effort, Grown Ups, caused more groans than laughs in the theater, but his latest, Just Go With It, looks promising enough to remind us why we enjoyed his mid-90s romps. Sandler joins Jennifer Aniston in a quirky romantic comedy about a man who picks up women by pretending to be married, who then must then pretend he's going through a divorce in order to land the lady of his affection. While Nicole Kidman is also attached to the film, her scenes are absent from the teaser.

Hall Pass
Directors: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly
Cast: Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate

Perhaps Owen Wilson should go back to crashing weddings. In this new comedy from the Farrelly Brothers, Wilson teams up with SNL's Jason Sudeikis as two married men whose wives give them one free week to have an affair. Of course, from the trailer it seems that there's a lesson to be learned at the end of the film. But, it's great to see more of Sudeikis, as he was the only thing that made The Bounty Hunter watchable.
