December is officially upon us, and so is year-end list-making season. We’re kicking things off by looking backwards and forwards: By ranking the finest teasers, trailers, and coming attractions of 2016. To qualify, only the trailer had to be released in this calendar year; you’ll see trailers below for movies that haven’t even been released yet and can’t be judged next to the films they represent. That’s as it should be; beyond their function as pieces of advertising, trailers should stand alone, as bite-sized entertainments and even, in a few rare occasions, as works of art. Here are the ten trailers of 2016 (plus a few honorable mentions) that came closest to that lofty ideal.

Joining The Hunger Games and Battle Royale in the grand tradition of movies about people forced to kill each other in a deranged competition is The Belko Experiment, the new trailer for which surfaced earlier today. Last seen playing to rabid midnight crowds at the Toronto International Film Festival, the brutal horror film will go into public release on March 17 of next year, by which point everyday life in America will vaguely resemble the events depicted in the trailer above.

It doesn’t hurt that Natalie Portman looks a lot like Jackie Kennedy. Dressed in pearls and a classic 1960s suit with a perfect bouffant hairstyle, she’s the splitting image of the former First Lady. But in Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín’s ‘Jackie,’ Portman’s performance goes beyond looks. As the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Portman flourishes in one of the best and most deeply human roles of her career.

The epic four-way crossover still unfurling on The CW takes up too much space for every supporting character to get their due, though at least one notable Arrow member went missing with nary an explanation. Ahead of next week’s winter finale, bosses explain where Artemis was during the crossover, and what we’ll learn of her relationship with Prometheus to come.

For those of us still playing Pokemon Go (me) or excited about the new Sun and Moon games, or just big fans of Pokemon in general, Legendary’s “live action” Detective Pikachu movie has its director.

While Lucasfilm doesn’t think women are ready to direct Star Wars films, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions doesn’t have that problem at all, today announcing that Outlander director Anna Foerster will be helming Lou, about a young mother enlisting the help of an older woman to find her kidnapped child.

Lionsgate
No, it’s not a sequel to The Adjustment Bureau, and, no, Nic Cage probably won’t wear one of those nifty dimension-hopping hats. The Humanity Bureau sounds like more of a Gattaca-meets-Elysium kind of thing, where people are unfairly assigned to live in poverty based on whether or not they’re productive to society. And Nicolas Cage has been cast to save them all, of course.
