A crew of insanely smart scientists travel to a barren alien landscape. After an interstellar storm, one of the crew is left behind and presumed dead. He is, however, very much alive, and slowly begins plotting his return. No, it’s not the story of Doctor Doom in the new Fantastic Four reboot...OK, it is, but it’s also the plot for the upcoming Ridley Scott sci-fi drama The Martian, and today we’ve got a brand new trailer for you.

It’s alive! Again! For the, what, twentieth time?
Director Todd Haynes has not made a feature film since 2007's I’m Not There, although he did direct the excellent five-part Mildred Pierce miniseries for HBO back in 2011. Fans of the director will be thrilled to watch this new trailer for Carol, Haynes’ first film in eight years — and it looks like a real stunner.
Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario continues to drop increasingly intriguing — and unnerving — trailers, the latest of which primarily focuses on Benicio Del Toro’s Alejandro, revealed to be quite the imposing hitman. Judging by Villeneuve’s previous films, Sicario isn’t your average drug war action-thriller, and these trailers definitely reinforce that idea.
Ride Along was one of the surprise hits of 2014, making a massive pile of cash in the traditionally slow month of January. A sequel was inevitable. Like clockwork, Ride Along 2 is set to arrive almost exactly two years to the day after the first film. Which means the second outing of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart’s mismatched buddy cops was written, shot, edited and will be released in the space of 728 days.
You’ve got to give credit where credit is due. A decade ago, Bradley Cooper was playing smarmy villains in lowbrow comedies. Now, he’s one of the biggest movie stars in the world. You don’t get there by accident – you get there by being smart about the films you take on. So if Bradley Cooper wants to play a disgraced chef attempting a comeback, we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. The Burnt trailer looks fine enough.
Bryan Cranston took a little break from leading roles since the end of Breaking Bad, which might have been a smart move after being so prevalent in our pop culture consciousness for several years. But that’s changing with Trumbo, the new film in which Cranston stars as the famously disgraced screenwriter, and the first trailer is quite fetching.
I can’t blame anyone who’s got Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the top of their list of most anticipated movies of the fall and winter. But for me, it’s all about The Hateful Eight.
Chronicle made Dane DeHaan an actor to watch. Then The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ambled along and took him down a peg (or five). Thankfully, DeHaan has an actual, proper movie from an actual, proper filmmaker waiting in the wings, giving him a chance to play one of popular culture’s most enigmatic figures alongside a crop of interesting actors. We’re not entirely sold on the Life trailer, but it’s a start.
As much as we adore Jason Statham, we’ll never pretend that he’s picky about his projects. Roughly half of the time spent being a fan of that scowling, head-butting British import involves suffering through his poor choices. So it’s weird to watch the new trailer for The Transporter Refueled and realize that this was the point where Statham decided “Nah, I’m good,” removing the one and only thing that could possibly make us interested in a fourth movie in this series.
