The Divergent series has never reached the culture-saturating heights of the Hunger Games movies, but it’s done well for itself. Divergent and its awkwardly titled sequel, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, left fans satisfied and made their fare share of cash at the box office. The first trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant (ugh, that title) is preaching to the choir. No one put off by the first two films will be won over by this footage and no one who skipped the first two will be able to follow any of this, but this movie doesn’t need your approval. It just needs the approval of the faithful.

Disney’s trend of adapting its animated classics into live action blockbusters has resulted in movies both good and bad, but The Jungle Book looks like it could be something special. The first trailer for the film has arrived and it rightfully puts the emphasis on the animals. Sure, young Mowgli is doing all of the running and the jumping, but we really care about the wide variety of creatures forcing him to do that running and jumping in the first place.
A new trailer for Creed has arrived, promising what very well could be the first great new Rocky film in years. Sylvester Stallone returns to reprise the iconic role of Rocky Balboa in the new film, which sees the great fighter discovering fresh talent in the son of his old opponent, the late Apollo Creed.
Emma Watson has not one, but two upcoming films in which she’s faced with cultish activity. There’s Alejandro Amenabar’s Regression, co-starring Ethan Hawke and hitting theaters this fall, and Colonia, co-starring Daniel Bruhl, which doesn’t yet have a release date, but you can watch the first trailer which arrived today.
Hardcore is premiering at TIFF this week, and the first trailer has arrived to give you a sense of what this new action film has to offer. The conceit of Hardcore is that the film is shown entirely in first-person POV, but that’s not all it has going for it — co-starring Sharlto Copley, the film is incredibly violent and bloody, and the trailer is appropriately NSFW, of course.
Michael Moore is back with his first film since 2009's Capitalism: A Love Story, and this time it appears he’s gotten a little more lighthearted — and yet, the trailer for Where to Invade Next feels like peak Michael Moore, in a good way. While the first preview for his new documentary doesn’t really clarify exactly what this film is about, it is quite delightful.
Back in Time does something a lot of movie documentaries don’t, combining both interviews with cast and crew and actual fans to give you a more dimensional look at the incredibly beloved and enduring classic. In the trailer for the new Back to the Future documentary, you’ll see regular fans alongside people like Steven Spielberg and Michael J. Fox discussing everything from fun behind the scenes stories to what the film means to them.
If you watched Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz, then Sarah Silverman’s dramatic turn in I Smile Back will hardly come as a surprise to you, but if you’re only familiar with her comedy work, then this trailer for the upcoming drama might knock your socks off a bit. Silverman shows a very different side of herself in the critically acclaimed new film, which impressed critics earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
When Clive Owen’s John Thackery says “I feel better than ever” in the new Season 2 trailer for The Knick, it’s hard to take that at face value — or any value, really. Last we saw Thackery, he was holed up in a nice rehab home for his cocaine addiction, where he was being treated with a revolutionary new drug: heroin. Hardly a promising ending for the brilliant, spun-out doctor, but whether he’s actually better or not, Thackery is back.
In The Program, Ben Foster plays renowned champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, who gave up his prestigious titles when it was revealed that he had been using performance-enhancing drugs in order to obtain them. A new trailer shows off Foster’s intensity in the role, which the actor says he achieved with the help of a little performance-enhancement of his own.
