Trailer: Nerds Win In How To Train Your Dragon

In real life I like Jay Baruchel a whole lot-- his skinny, twitchy presence is welcome in pretty much anything, and he even played a pretty convincing villain in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. But something about him isn't quite sitting right in the new trailer for How To Train Your Dragon, a DreamWorks Animation movie featuring Baruchel's voice as the scrawny kid in the Viking village who finds himself on the side of the giant reptiles in the epic human-dragon battle.

Or, uh, something like that. The trailer spends more time setting up the character and the world than really getting into the plot, which is the way to go with first trailers anyway. You can watch the whole thing in glorious high-res at Yahoo! Movies or in our player below. Even though they quashed the Monsters vs. Aliens sequel, DreamWorks Animation is generally a studio that makes good choices, and the stellar voice cast for this -- Baruchel, America Ferrera, Kristen Wiig and Gerard Butler-- suggests something even better than this merely OK trailer indicates. How to Train Your Dragon hits theaters on March 26 next year.
