Not to be confused with the upcoming horror film Final Girl (which does not look very good), The Final Girls is a charming and clever ode to camp slasher movies, and the first trailer lays that charm on pretty thick. A metatextual homage to classic horror, The Final Girls follows in the footsteps of Scream (but way funnier) and The Cabin in the Woods (but more heartfelt).

Tom Hardy has had a fairly big year in film (well, his last few years have been fairly big, to be fair), and before we see him opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in this winter’s highly-anticipated The Revenant, we’ll see him opposite himself in Legend, the British crime drama in which Hardy plays notorious ’60s gangster twins.
Make a mental checklist of things you’d expect to see in a red band trailer for a movie titled Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Got it? Okay. Now watch the trailer above and realize that this movie, for better or worse, has it all. We can reserve actual judgment for when the movie actually opens in theaters, but based on this preview, no one can accuse this movie of not going for a “kitchen sink” approach to this concept.
If you follow even a couple of film critics on Twitter, then you know The Witch. This debut film by director Robert Eggers was a sensation at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Best Director award and also the award for Most Orgasmic Tweets By Film Critics. To wit:
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.
