It’s going to be a big fall for journalism movies.

Oh, boy. Here we go. The first trailer for The Angry Birds Movie is here this is the culmination of something. It’s big moment for something. The mere existence of this movie means something. We don’t know what those somethings are, though. All one can do at this moment is watch this preview and ponder, uh, something.
A recent featurette for The Peanuts Movie showed off the hard work that went into keeping the new film’s animation faithful to the original comic strip, and you can see that in the latest trailer for the movie, which features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang in their first big screen outing.
Adam McKay’s best known as the director of Will Ferrell comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers. His films tend to be weird, bizarre, and silly. But his 2010 buddy cop comedy The Other Guys ended on a note that was more outraged than outrageous: Animated infographic closing credits that outlined the reasons and details of the 2008 economic collapse (which was the background of the case investigated in the film by Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s characters).
There’s some kind of joke to be made about how it took the arrival of a Spanish-language preview for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur for us to hear the film’s English-language voice cast in action. This new international trailer also gives us our best look yet at the movie’s actual plot and characters, which is a nice change of pace from the lovely-but-vague early teases.
Robert De Niro has occasionally dipped his toe in the serene waters of “out of professional f—s to give,” but with the trailer for his latest film it would appear that he’s fully submerged himself for this one. Heist looks like a bland ripoff of Casino and Ocean’s 11, with De Niro once again playing a gangster who runs a casino, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Dave Bautista playing the guys who attempt to rob him.
Vin Diesel. A flaming sword. Gnarly witches and supernatural monsters. Vin Diesel’s insane beard. What more could you ask for in a new film from the star of the Fast and Furious and Riddick franchises? Not much — oh, but then there’s Michael Caine and Elijah Wood and Wildling badass Rose Leslie from Game of Thrones. Okay, so you could ask for more, but the latest trailer for The Last Witch Hunter promises more than enough to satisfy.
The world wasn’t exactly crying out for a remake of Point Break, but here we are. We didn’t ask for a modern take on Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 action semi-classic, but maybe we did something to deserve it. Then again, if the new trailer is any indication, we don’t know what anyone could have possibly done to deserve this movie happening to them.
We weren’t sure what to think about Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic after the first trailer. Yes, it seemed dramatic and fascinating, but also highlighted a performance by Michael Fassbender as the former Apple CEO that didn’t really look or sound at all like Steve Jobs. Could the film overcome that hurdle? After the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews — specifically calling out Fassbender’s “enthralling” and “stunning” — it may be time to fully buy in to this project. If you’re left doubting, a brand new trailer has arrived to help convince you.
The latest trailer for Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea has arrived, promising an epic, harrowing showdown between Thor and Spider-Man and a great white sperm whale. Okay, it’s not actually the Marvel heroes, but Chris Hemsworth and Tom Holland do star in Howard’s upcoming film, which recounts the horrific true story of the Essex whaling ship and the crew’s encounter with a gigantic whale, which later inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.
