Orphan Black Season 5 trailer

It’s the fifth and final season of Orphan Black, and the clones are uniting to fight for agency over their lives and their bodies.

It’s been a long, twisted, and bloody road for the clones — who I often forget are all played by the infinitely talented Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany — who have for four seasons been fighting against DYAD, the shadowy science corporation that created them, the religious extremist group the Proletheans, and themselves. But in the trailer for season 5, the core four are finally rallying together in a show of unity — even if many of them are still physically separated since we last saw them.

The Wizard of Lies

Quick: name the most recent film in which Robert De Niro delivered a dynamite performance. Silver Linings Playbook? Maybe the original Meet the Parents? We don’t have to go as far back as 1998’s Ronin, do we? Yikes. Answering that question is far tougher than it used to be because De Niro has appeared in a ton of not-so-great films over the past fifteen years, leading some to attempt to pinpoint the exact year he seemed to stopped caring about his career.

But now we have a full trailer for the HBO original film The Wizard of Lies, and it looks like the once-legendary actor may finally be ready to give a shit again.

The Bad Batch trailer

A one-armed protagonist sporting a Magnum revolver and smiley face pants, a pack of hungry cannibals, and a cult leader played by Keanu Reeves are the stars of Ana Lily Amirpour‘s sophomore effort as a filmmaker, The Bad Batch. Needless to say, for a whole mess of reasons, we’re excited about her follow-up to her enchanting debut film, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. The second trailer for her funky post-apocalyptic-ish tale has arrived, and it teases one bizarre wasteland we can’t wait to visit come June.

Dear White People trailer

Writer/director Justin Simien’s 2014 debut feature film Dear White People announced the arrival of a bold new voice in entertainment. Simien’s movie tackled topics like identity and race with humor and wit, and I was thrilled when Netflix announced they’d picked up the concept as a TV series. After a quick date announcement trailer a couple of months ago, they’ve released the first full trailer for the series – and it looks fantastic.

the hitman's bodyguard trailer

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are going to try their hand at reviving the buddy comedy — this time with plenty of the latter’s trademark expletives.

The trailer for their new movie The Hitman’s Bodyguard is less a send-up of the legendary Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner Bodyguard romance (though the movie’s famous theme song I Will Always Love You hilariously plays throughout the trailer) and more an attempt to recapture the magic of ’80s action movie bromances à la Lethal Weapon. And with Reynolds and Jackson both cursing up a storm, it may just work.

6 Days trailer

In 1980, six armed men stormed the Iranian Embassy in London, taking 26 people hostage at the diplomatic building in south Kensington. The SAS raid to rescue the hostages was broadcast live on British television, and became one of the most well-known sieges in recent British history. Now, the story will be shared with the rest of the world in the film adaptation 6 Days.

kathryn bigelow detroit trailer

The trailer for Kathryn Bigelow‘s anticipated new movie Detroit has dropped, revealing a heart-pounding and gripping depiction of the 1967 Detroit race riots that rocked the nation.

The Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty has tackled hard issues around international war and torture, but Detroit hones in on one of the most devastating riots in U.S. history, and the polarizing issues of systemic racism and police brutality that still impact the country today. Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega takes center stage as an African-American security guard in the Detroit trailer, which takes an unflinching look at the escalating tension and violence between the city and the police.

transformers the last knight trailer

Michael Bay has been directing Transformers movies for literally a decade now, so you should know exactly what to expect before you click play on the new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer. By now, you know whether or not these movies are for you – you’re either one of the people who loves them to death or one of the people who hate-watches them with a grimace throughout their very long running times. Either way, we’ve all contributed to them being enormous hits.

To be fair, this new one does feature Transformers fighting alongside medieval knights in flashbacks, so at least it has that going for it.

Take Me trailer

In his feature directorial debut, actor Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills) offers people the chance to purchase a simulated experience of a high-stakes abduction. Healy isn’t playing a real criminal, but his new fake kidnapee, played by Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), may turn into one. Ray Moody’s (Healy) alternative therapy, like most too good to be true jobs in crime movies, quickly turns sour and attracts some heat.

Below, watch the Take Me trailer.
