As debate rages on about the ethical and moral ramifications of drone warfare, a new thriller starring Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, The Martian) imagines the consequences of one such strike. In Drone (watch the exclusive trailer above), Bean plays Neil, a seemingly average suburban family man whose secret day job as a military contractor includes orchestrating pilot-less air attacks.
If Jordan Peele’s box office smash Get Out is a subversive and scary look at an interracial couple’s experience in the suburbs, then allow the upcoming dramatic comedy Little Boxes to offer a more nuanced take. (Watch the exclusive trailer above.)
In the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious, we learned the shocking news that outlaw supreme Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) would be betraying his beloved crew. In the new Super Bowl spot above, we get more details about Dom’s double-cross as he teams up with Charlize Theron’s villain Cipher — and kisses her in front of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Afterward, we never learn why Dom is breaking bad, but we do see more of what his team intends to do about it.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales first made an appearance last October with a spooky teaser that featured Javier Bardem’s grotesque villain — but no Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in a teaser for Dead Men Tell No Tales.
While much of America tunes in to Fox on Sunday night for the Super Bowl, movie fans will also be keeping their eyes peeled for the latest and greatest movie trailers making a splash during the commercial breaks.

With the release of its second and final full trailer, Disney’s live-action reboot of Beauty and the Beast has delivered its rebooted theme song. The 2-minute, 24-second clip premiered Monday night during ABC’s The Bachelor, a synergistic bit of programming that saw the film’s resident baddies, Luke Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (LeFou), hosting the telecast and introducing the trailer, our most in-depth look yet at the Bill Condon-helmed remake. The trailer, which is now up on Facebook, follows the basics of the 1991 Disney cartoon classic — book-loving Belle feels stifled by her small-minded town (embodied by the narcissistic Gaston), but her inventor father, Maurice (Kevin Kline), believes she will be safer there than out in the dangerous world.
Adam Sandler was one of the biggest names in comedy in the 1990s. Between 1991 and 1996, he appeared in some of SNL‘s most memorable sketches, like “Lunch Lady Land” and “The Hanukkah Song”; starred in the still-widely-quoted movies Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore; and released two albums, They’re All Gonna Laugh at You! and What the Hell Happened to Me?, both of which sold over two million copies. ...
As we know from its recently released plot synopsis, Logan will pick up with Wolverine as he’s drawn out of isolation – where he’s been caring for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) — in order to protect a young girl (Dafne Keen) who’s being hunted by Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and his merry band of psycho Reavers. For those not yet in the know, Keen is playing X-23, a female clone of Wolverine who made her comic-book debut back in 2004.
He’s not Gryffindor anymore. But then again, he’s not quite Slytherin either. The wit and wisdom of Ravenclaw, then, that’s where we might find Rupert Grint in this first teaser trailer for the TV (well, streamed) series of ‘Snatch’. Based on Guy Ritchie’s follow-up to ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, it centres on a ‘group of 20-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime’. ...
A new red band trailer is out for Raw — it’s free of dialogue but full of blood. Watch it below.
Cate Blanchett is already an Oscar winner (for 2013’s Blue Jasmine), as well as one of Hollywood’s most revered and acclaimed leading ladies. Written and directed by Julian Rosefeldt, Manifesto will feature Blanchett playing a variety of characters whose dialogue is taken directly from famous art-world manifestos.
As far as action-comedy duos go, J.K. Simmons and Emile Hirsch probably aren’t the most obvious of pairings. Hirsch plays Martin, a struggling Los Angeles banjo player recently dumped by his girlfriend Ginnie (Analeigh Tipton).
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died within a day of one another last week — at ages 60 and 84, respectively — had a mother-daughter relationship like no other. Fisher often joked that she and her mother, next-door neighbors in Beverly Hills, were living in a reality show. The Bright Lights trailer shows a few moments that back up her quip — Fisher chiding Reynolds about her ancient cell phone, the two picking out an outfit for Reynolds’ cabaret show — but also hints at a deeper look at the family’s complicated history.
It's the first film in 15 years for Hawn, a wild and profane mother-daughter comedy-adventure, promoted in both for-all-audiences green- and raunchier red-band style
We’re not going to lie: You might start feeling bad for Norman Oppenhemier, the persistent wannabe businessman played by Richard Gere, by the end of the first trailer for Norman: The Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. (Watch exclusively above.) Everywhere Norman turns, he’s met by derision, rejection, or a very expensive shoe bill.
Just last week, the eighth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise got a new, nonnumerical name — The Fate of the Furious. Directed by F.

World War I doesn’t get nearly as much cinematic attention as World War II. Rarer still are World War I films that follow the events along the Eastern Front. The new romantic war drama The Ottoman Lieutenant (watch the exclusive teaser above) explores the battle line drawn between the Russian Empire (one of the Allies) and the Ottoman and German empires (the Central Powers).
This past summer’s Southside With You recounted, in fictional fashion, the first date of future President Barack Obama and future First Lady Michelle Robinson. If that well-received work didn’t quite satisfy your appetite for early-years portraits of America’s current commander-in-chief, Netflix has just what you’re craving with Barry, which just released its debut trailer. (Watch it above.)
The animated classic Beauty and the Beast comes thrillingly to life in the first trailer for the new Disney musical that’s hitting theaters on March 17. After months of anticipation, fans get to see the Beast in live action: a magnificent motion-capture creature who looks unmistakably like the actor who plays him, Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens. ...
The first Patriots Day teaser ended — ominously — just as the explosions went off in the docudrama’s depiction of the real-life events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. On Monday morning, we got a full trailer that gives some hints about the desperate aftermath, including the manhunt for the two brothers who set that catastrophe in motion. In his second movie for director Peter Berg this year (after Deepwater Horizon), Mark Wahlberg plays a Boston police officer who’s patrolling the finish line that morning when the bombs hit the crowds of spectators. ...
It takes a woman to win a war in Wonder Woman, the next superhero film in the DC Extended Universe. The new trailer explains why the Amazon princess Diana (Gal Gadot) leaves her isolated homeland to fight alongside American troops in World War I as Wonder Woman. Although she finds turn-of-the-century fashions restrictive — “How can a woman possibly fight in this?” she asks while trying on a corseted dress — her bullet-deflecting bracelets and warrior skills are definitely an asset to the Allies.
