Anyways, Patlabor is also my most likely choice.

Patlabor WXIII (or 3) came out in 2002 in Japan, had a limited release in NYC and was shown in several festivals around the world in 2003 and 2004.
The mecha is definitely white, but I am not sure it would stand out in the trailer. Patlabor has an unique take on the mechas. Most of them are civilians and are tools to be used by the workers or the police. It's not a war show unlike most mechas shows.

Rahxephon also has a very white mecha, and had a movie come out in 2003. It's not listed on IMDB, so I don't know in what countries it came out.

Older than that, you have Escaflowne, with a white mecha wearing a badass cape and wielding a giant sword. (it's a mecha show in a medfan setting). The TV series is from 96 and a movie came out in 2000. It had a limited release in the USA in 2002.
Definitely within the years I attended high school, so within the range of 2008-2012, gravitating towards 2010/2011. The Hacienda Crossings theater is in the Californian Bay Area in the US.

So far Patlabor doesn't seem to be it, and Rahxephon isn't bringing up any memories either. And Escaflowne has too old graphics to match the ones I remember. FYI, the type of animation was very "new-style" with brighter colors and less edginess.

Another thing I remembered about the trailer was that one of the mecha was at one point "open-topped" or that the piloting seat had no roof or surrounding structure.

So it's a mecha that occured around 2 years ago? You're sure it's not a Zoid or Gundam series. Or even Code Geass?

Request for this ero manga I read a while back but can't remember the name of to check for updates. It had this rich ojou type who ran away from home with her beloved butler servant and settling down in an apartment in the city to avoid getting married to some rich playboy in order to save the family business. The latest chapter I read had the rich dude's secretary sent to spy on them and get information.. or something. Anyone have an idea?

Definitely wasn't Zoids, the mecha was humanoid and I saw nothing about animalistic robots ever. It wasn't Gundam, as the animation was too recent (in terms of style) and the only ones comparable are 00 and Age, and I know for sure it was neither of those. It was not Code Geass either, art style was completely different.

Ugh. This is impossible. ;_;

Was the robot clearly humanoid?

Since it was fluid animation, I'm thinking... maybe FLAG?
That had a foreign language theatrical trailer, I think.

Hm. so far looking at this one it's the closest thing to what I remember, though I'll have to watch it further. Great animation quality, white robot-like... Thing. Recent but not entirely so.

Thanks!

Another anime identification request...

I saw a sig from someone in another forum that caught my attention.

Does anyone know what anime this is from? It seems like something I might like.

Most likely, 封神演義 "Houshin Engi" (English title: Soul Hunter).
Protagonist's best friend is a flying hippo, and one of his ally is an artificial life-form boy that shoots his bracers, yes.
