I'm hoping the Cinematics in game between acts are more polished than the character class trailers. Even the Diablo 2 ones look better, my favorite being act 3-4 with Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal.

Well ... yeah, the class announcement trailers are done using nothing but in-game assets. They're essentially Diablo III machinima if you want to classify it. And they're effing amazing. Obviously they're not the pre-rendered cinematics, but if anyone is even confused about that... then that's pretty cool too actually.
The reason why those close-up character dialogues with the animated portraits were removed was because it took you away from your character and the game. So I'd be really surprised if we had in-game cinematics, but ... never say never.
