Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch movie is almost upon us, and as an extra incentive, the film debuted a new trailer today that focuses on Priyanka Chopra’s extremely fashionable villain.
As the previous teasers already implied, Cars 3 is going to be a little…darker than previous Cars movies. In Pixar’s third installment of the hit franchise, Owen Wilson’s legendary race car Lightning McQueen is forced into retirement following a traumatic crash, and with all the shiny, young new cars — like Jackson Storm — dominating the track, Lightning has a tough road ahead if he wants to remain relevant. That’s a pretty heavy-sounding plot, but as the full trailer for Cars 3 proves, it’s not all doom and gloom in Cars World.
Man-hunts-down-other-men-who-did-something-to-his-dog seems like it’s become an action movie subgenre of its own ever since John Wick came out, and now Bruce Willis is trying out the trope, playing a private eye who goes on a rampage after his dog gets stolen by drug dealers.
Honestly, I’m not even sure this trailer was even necessary. Everything we needed to know about ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ was present in yesterday’s teasers, provided you were willing to go frame-by-frame through the video, take countless screenshots, and form some grand narrative in your head. I watched the trailer in realtime and even I was able to learn that there’s… Julianne Moore? And she works in a… pie shop? Or maybe a bowling alley? She was definitely wearing a bowling league shirt, I figured that much out at least. Unless that wasn’t Julianne Moore? Honestly, the video was a little fuzzy and I couldn’t…
There are a number of interchangeable male actors who inexplicably seem to be dominating the Hollywood scene these days. Some have been more successful than others, some have stuck to indies or sci-fi blockbusters, and they all look like Sam Worthington. The latest upcoming World War II-set historical romance features the Sam Worthington who is Jai Courtney, star of Terminator: Salvation and Suicide Squad, who plays a Nazi officer who falls in love with a Dutch-born Jewish woman while he is investigating Kaiser Wilhelm.
This new international trailer for Justice League isn’t nearly as long as the domestic trailers, but the latest sneak peek at Zack Snyder’s ambitious superhero team-up should hold you over until the next full-length preview drops. And despite its compact runtime, it does feature a little bit of new footage while teasing the mysterious new villain that will bring these heroic titans together, all set to a generic heavy rock cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together” that was clearly lifted from Snyder’s iPod circa 2001.
June 9 is gonna be a big day in 2017: not just this writer’s birthday, not just the funniest numerical date of the year (6/9 — nice), not just the release of well-pedigreed indies Beatriz at Dinner and It Comes at Night. The day will undoubtedly be dominated by the grand debut of Universal’s remake of The Mummy starring box-office king of summer Tom Cruise and breakout star Sofia Boutella. We’ve seen the trailer, we’ve pored over the scoop that Cruise’s mummy-fighting hero will also himself be a walking-dead type, and we’ve pondered the larger implications of Universal going all-in on a connected universe of monster movies. And today, a pair of new tidbits with slake our thirst for new Mummy details.
It’s almost as if Warner Bros. was waiting until they could tack on the Cannes Film Festival’s coveted Official Selection palm-leaf to release the new trailer for The Beguiled. Hot on the heels of the news that Sofia Coppola’s latest would make its world premiere on the banks of the Croisette, we’re getting our second major look at this adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel. (Coppola has made it clear that her film will be an entirely different animal than Don Siegel’s 1971 take on the material.) And from the looks of it, things are not going to turn out so hot for Colin Farrell.
You’re going to want to be seated for this one, preferably somewhere private and removed from other, more rational members of society. There’s a trailer for a new Tom and Jerry movie — yes, the Tom and Jerry, the famous animated duo whose classic shorts were so casually racist that Warner Bros. eventually re-released them with a taped disclaimer from Whoopi Goldberg. But this isn’t your usual T&J romp. If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Willy Wonka was great and all but man, it really needed the awkwardly shoehorned perspective of a cartoon cat and mouse,” then this movie trailer is for you.
The ennui of suburban life can drive a middle-aged man to do crazy things. Usually, it’s something like having an affair or purchasing a flashy compensatory car. For Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, it meant a return to his teenage habits of blazin’ it and kickin’ out the Guess Who jams. And in E.L. Doctorow’s 2008 short story Wakefield, a family man breaks free from the shackles of everyday drudgery by abandoning his family and then watching them react to his disappearance from the attic of the house next door. But, like, in a poetic way.
