20 More Recent Trailers With Sad Cover Versions of Popular Songs

When we talk about a “trend” in Hollywood, what we’re really talking about is someone having a good idea and then a lot of people copying it. When the trailer for The Social Network arrived with a haunting choral version of Radiohead’s “Creep,” it...

‘Nerve’ Trailer: Dave Franco and Emma Roberts Teach Us the Dangers of the Internet

by Britt Hayes May 11, 2016 @ 8:09 PM
Judging by a trailer that seemingly reveals just about everything (including the bodies of its leads), Nerve takes the premise of indie thrillers like Cheap Thrills and the lesser-seen 13 Sins and re-frames it with the treacherous world of a little place called The Internet. With that particular distinction in mind, it shouldn’t surprise you that Nerve was helmed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the directing duo behind Catfish (the movie, not the TV show).

‘Queen of Katwe’ Trailer: Lupita Nyong’o Will Move You in This Inspiring Chess Drama

by Britt Hayes May 10, 2016 @ 5:55 PM
After winning an Oscar for her incredible breakthrough performance in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong’o has been awesomely unpredictable in her career choices. Instead of following up the acclaimed drama with more acclaimed dramas, Nyong’o starred in two films back-to-back where she portrayed animated characters. More than anything, it’s left us anxious to see her in another live-action film, which makes the first trailer for Queen of Katwe pretty exciting.

‘The Woods’ Trailer: Something Evil From the Creators of ‘The Guest’

by Matt Singer May 10, 2016 @ 11:37 AM
The official synopsis for The Woods on YouTube says simply that it is “one of the scariest movies in decades. The Woods reinvents horror with a completely fresh and terrifying take on the genre.” Well, jeez. No pressure or nothing. Just be the scariest thing anyone has seen in years and completely reinvent one of the most formulaic genres in movies. Piece of cake!

‘Swiss Army Man’ Red-Band Trailer: Harry Potter’s Wand Really Is Magic

by Matt Singer May 10, 2016 @ 8:45 AM
There is a quote from ScreenCrush in this Swiss Army Man, calling it “A fart-fueled adventure.” Technically, Erin Whitney called it “a bizarre fart-fueled adventure.” And the trailer does look pretty bizarre, what with Daniel Radcliffe’s rotting corpse farting and being used as a jet ski and, his erection being used by Paul Dano as a crude compass of some kind. Who says cinema is dead? As long as their is life in Daniel Radcliffe’s rotting corpse’s erection, the moves can never die.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Trailer: Out of the Shadows, Into the Shadows of a Movie Theater

by Matt Singer May 3, 2016 @ 12:09 PM
I like that this video explains who the Ninja Turtles are, for the benefit of those people who have been living in a cave (or maybe a sewer) since the late 1980s and have somehow avoided one of the six previous movies, five television shows, hundreds of toys, comics, and video games about these characters. “Oh Donatello is the purple one, ohhhhhh. For the last 30 years, I thought that was Raphael! My bad.”

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

by Britt Hayes May 2, 2016 @ 7:48 PM
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.
