In light of this, below I’ve compiled 10 of the most interesting trailers released over the last couple of weeks, for your enjoyment! Drop a comment below and let us know which ones you like.
The Birth of a Nation
This is going to be a stunner for sure. I’m kind of getting sick of the commentary online about how it’s going to pick up Oscar buzz because of the push for diversity, and how divisive general audiences are about this subject matter. But hey, from what the trailers are showing so far it looks AMAZING. Also, it won the Audience Award AND the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. So for all the naysayers, stop trying to downplay the magnitude of Black stories, Black struggles and of Black excellence. Rant over. Enjoy the trailer.
Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher in the antebellum South, orchestrates an uprising.
Bleed for This
The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza, who after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks.
Brian Cranston has been slowly making his way into the Hollywood machine after his amazing success as Walter White in one of the best TV programs EVER, Breaking Bad.
Just last year he was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Trumbo, but this time around he seems to be going for a more conventional Hollywood role, as a dad who has to come to terms with his daughter’s new boyfriend, played by James Franco.
A dad forms a bitter rivalry with his daughter’s young rich boyfriend.
Amazing-looking thriller. Probably Tom Hanks and/or Clint Eastwood’s next Oscar.
The story of Chesley Sullenberger, who became a hero after gliding his plane along the water in the Hudson River, saving all of his 155 passengers.
Okay, going to be dead honest here. If you are interest in horror/zombie style movies, maybe you will enjoy this. BUT, if you have any intention of watching this film, I highly recommend that you don’t watch this trailer.
It gives away so much, and is just a pathetically constructed trailer in general. Here it is anyway, because you can make decisions for yourself.
Following the outbreak of a virus that wipes out the majority of the human population, a young woman documents her family’s new life in quarantine and tries to protect her infected sister.
The Girl with All the Gifts
This one is based on a yet another book set in a dystopian future that focuses on youth in a type of coming-of-age story. It looks really interesting, and it also looks like they aren’t holding back on the violence that much, but I’m not sure what the rating is yet. For now, you can enjoy the trailer right here.
A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
This one looks really intense, as a couple of spies go undercover during World War II. Not 100% convinced by the accents just yet, but it looks like Cillian Murphy does a good job in his role. Definitely going to give this one a shot.
Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and the Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler.
Legend of Tarzan
I’m a huge Margot Robbie fan, and this film also has a really great cast, including Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. But I just don’t know man; the CGI isn’t that impressive, and I just don’t think Alexander Skarsgård is that great.
Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
This is the second trailer released for this weird-ass film, which looks like it will be quite a trip. Once again, it’s based off a beloved book, which has left audiences divided in the wake of the first marketing material (including the first trailer), but with Eva Green in a starring role, I have faith. Then again, I thought the same thing with Sin City 2, and that didn’t work out too well …
When Jacob discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers.
Rachel Weisz is back to her Constant Garderner-esque roles with this one, where she’s at the center of a debate about the authenticity of Auschwitz concentration camp and the atrocities that took place there. This one’s a biopic.
Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.
