wonder trailer

Five years after making his directorial debut, the author and director of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” Stephen Chbosky, has his sophomore effort coming out. His new movie is an adaptation of R.J. Palacio‘s New York Times bestseller, Wonder, and stars Jacob Tremblay (Room), Julia Roberts, and Owen Wilson. Although Chbosky didn’t adapt the material himself, the trailer shows off his warmth as a storyteller.

Below, watch the Wonder trailer.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Trailer

You may recall that the first season of Game of Thrones featured a lead character being awkwardly knocked unconscious as he led his troops into battle because the show’s budget simply couldn’t pay for an action scene larger than a small skirmish.

The Game of Thrones season 7 trailer laughs at that scene.

Despicable Me 3 trailer

It looks like Gru, Steve Carell’s reformed villain of the Despicable Me movies, is about to turn to the dark side once again. A brand new trailer for Despicable Me 3 has just been released, and the newest Illumination Entertainment sequel sees Gru meeting up with his twin brother Dru (also voiced by Carell) and being tempted to return to a life of crime. Minions form a dancing prison gang, hijinks ensue…you know how these things go. Check out the latest Despicable Me 3 trailer below.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Trailer

There’s one thing we can say for sure about Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – it’s going to be spectacular to look at. Luc Besson‘s adaptation of Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières’ comic books appears to be a visual treat and the latest trailer offers enough eye candy to fill an entire movie. But is that enough to grab the attention of audiences in a summer filled with more recognizable faces and movies with numbers in their titles? After all, your average moviegoer probably isn’t familiar with Valerian and Laureline.

Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 out of the way, we can look forward to the next Marvel Studios title arriving this summer, and that’s their collaboration with Sony Pictures, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This will be the second reboot of the Spider-Man franchise in five years, but since the introduction of Tom Holland as the new webslinger in Captain America: Civil War, fans are actually excited to see the franchise start over, especially since we’re not getting the wallcrawler’s origin story again. Instead, as shown in the final Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (there are actually two of them), we get to see Peter Parker struggle as he balances his double life as a superhero desperate to prove himself and a high school student who can’t share his biggest secret.

wish upon trailer

If you cross Joey King, get ready to pay the consequences. That’s basically the premise of Wish Upon, in which the The ConjuringWhite House Down, and Wish I Was Here star gets seven wishes to do as she pleases, like making a bully rot. A pretty sweet deal for a teenager quickly goes terribly wrong in director John R. Leonetti‘s (Annabelle) summer horror movie.

Below, watch the new Wish Upon trailer.

Austin Found trailer

Kidnapping is normally no laughing matter, but in co-writer/director Will Raee’s upcoming comedy Austin Found, he’s gathered a stellar cast that he hopes will make you forget about real-world problems for a while and just watch a bunch of idiots try to get away with a small-town crime. With names like Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Craig Robinson (The Office), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), Matt Jones (Breaking Bad), Patrick Warburton (A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth) on board, chances are pretty good that you’ll at least crack a smile seeing their antics play out on screen.

Check out the first Austin Found trailer below.

Borg McEnroe

It’s unlikely that George R.R. Martin was inspired to write his A Song of Ice and Fire novels by watching tennis legends Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe face off on the court, but considering the players’ nicknames were Ice and Fire, it wouldn’t be entirely ridiculous. (Mostly ridiculous? Yes.) The Swedish Borg was “Ice,” cool, calm and collected; McEnroe, a notoriously hot-headed New Yorker, was “Fire.” The two faced each other a number of times throughout the late ’70s and early ’80s, developing one of the sport’s most epic rivalries.

Now they’re getting the biopic treatment with a film called Borg/McEnroe. Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason is playing Borg, but the big draw for me is that Shia LaBeouf – who’s been known to be quite the hot-head himself over the years – is playing McEnroe. Check out the first international Borg/McEnroe trailer below.

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we take a look at a little indie that could, get to know a different kind of white rapper, start spinning like a dervish in the parking lot with other hippie chicks, stand with mouth agape at some schlocky sci-fi, and remember Whitney Houston through the eyes of the director who brought us Kurt & Courtney.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Upfronts have come to an end, and the last batch of trailers has arrived from The CW, showing off the new shows they have coming in the 2017-2018 season.

We’ve already highlighted the trailer for Black Lightning, but there are three other shows that The CW is trying to get off the ground. There’s a remake of the classic series Dynasty, the military drama Valor and their most interesting show, Life Sentence, about a girl with a terminal illness who suddenly finds herself dealing with the life she lived while she was living each day like it was the end of her life. Will they be any good? Judge for yourself by watching The CW 2017 TV series trailers after the jump. Read More »
