In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).

‘Bad Moms’ Red and Green Band Trailers: Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell Are So Done With Trying to Be Good

EDIT

Bad Moms looks like something akin to The Hangover but, you know, for moms. It's a fair comparison, since the new comedy was written by the guys who brought you The Hangover. In keeping with the good mom / bad mom theme, STX has released green and red band trailers — just in case you feel like Kathryn Hahn's declaration of "I say we go punch that chick right in the t—" is a little too NSFW for your delicate sensibilities. Whatever it is, Bad Moms is definitely not for kids.

Much can change between a movie’s initial trailer and the finished film (like that Anakin Skywalker reference in The Force Awakens). Visual FX will be finalized, scenes may be cut in the editing process to improve the narrative flow, additional footage might be incorporated, and additional dialogue may be recorded. That last one is particularly relevant for X-Men: Apocalypse, as you may have noticed that the titular villain’s voice changed quite a bit between the first trailer and the more recent sneak peeks.

It’s not uncommon for trailers to feature scenes that never make it to theaters, or for specific scenes to look slightly different than they did in early teasers, owing to changes in visual FX during production. Such is the case with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while some of the scenes featured in the trailers weren’t included in the theatrical version, those deleted scenes are included on the new Blu-ray release. But there was one thing from the initial trailers that wasn’t restored: a reference to George Lucas’ prequels.

Marvel
Apologies in advance to your butt because your sense of patriotic duty is about to trump any and all loyalty you may have to your own bodily comfort. Mark your calendars for May 5 (that’s this Thursday; again, sorry to your butt for the short notice), which is when Marvel will unleash the Ultimate Captain America Marathon in select theaters nationwide. The marathon includes the first two Captain America films, both Avengers films, and culminates in — what else — Civil War.

Paramount Pictures
The latest chapter of the current Star Trek saga doesn’t hit theaters until this summer, but it looks like Paramount is hedging their bets as the studio is already (reportedly) plotting the next installment in the franchise. Although fans don’t seem to be totally wowed by the trailers for Star Trek Beyond, it would appear that the studio is quite pleased with Justin Lin’s direction for the upcoming sequel — but with Lin attached to helm that new Space Jam movie (ugh, why), Paramount may need another director to take on Trek.

Everyone Remain Calm, James Wan Isn’t Leaving ‘Aquaman’

Universal Pictures
The rumors of James Wan’s production squabbles on the set of Aquaman have been greatly exaggerated. An item about the DC superhero film universe posted over the weekend on Birth.Movies.Death cited “multiple, reliable sources” as claiming that director James Wan has been having some misgivings about the process, and may depart the project entirely if the friction between him and studio brass doesn't clear up. Writer Devin Faraci’s exact words were “a tremendous amount of trepidation,” speculating that the Jason Momoa-led Aquaman needs Wan much more than he needs the movie, having already laid claim to Warner Bros.’ summer slate with The Conjuring 2 and Lights Out, the latter of which he produced.
