Back in January, we brought you 12 Comedy Films Coming In 2012 - and now, four months later, some have been and gone, some have been repositioned on the release date calendar and others have been nuked from orbit. Or just removed from cinemas. Or something.

Now, we've got 13 trailers for upcoming comedies for you to look at - so get with the clicking! You've got Jason Segel's face to titter at. And Sacha Baron Cohen's beard to giggle at. And Will Smith to snortle at. You get the idea.
