This Week’s new movie trailers have some HUGE variation – from laugh out loud lowbrow adult humour to animated kids films – and then, even more lowbrow adult humour sadly watered down to PG-rated bollocks.
Of course, there’s some good stuff amongst this week’s new movie trailers too, and there was also plenty of indie-horror pap that we could have put in this week also – but – if you can’t even sit through the trailer, for it being SO bad, then why promote it? We left them out (shout outs to Salvation, Johnny Z). Here’s all the half-decent movies we’ve found. Check it out…
What Men Want (Mature Age ‘Redband’ Trailer)
Paramount Pictures has released a new red band trailer for the upcoming workplace comedy What Men Want, starring the Oscar-nominated Taraji P. Henson as a successful sports agent who gains the power to hear men’s thoughts. A sex-flip on Nancy Meyers’ What Women Want. The movie is the latest directed by Adam Shankman (of The Wedding Planner, Bringing Down the House, Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, and Rock of Ages) and looks like a seriously rowdy, full-on R-rated comedy, with Henson letting loose. The cast includes Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Tracy Morgan. This trailer only has a few bits of harsh language, though I wish there was more because they’re probably not going to hold back.
This film will be released on January 11th 2019.
Head full of Honey
Warner Bros has released the new Alzheimer’s drama coined as Head Full of Honey. The new 2018 movie trailers feature Matilda (Sophie Lane Nolte) who is in the mission of helping her grandfather (Nick Nolte) who is suffering from Alzheimer’s and ends up going on an amazing adventure with him. The film is directed by German actor and filmmaker Til Schweiger and is written by Jojo Moyes.
Schweiger’s Head Full of Honey movie will be released in theatres everywhere starting November 30th.
The Lion King
The original animated Lion King movie came out in 1994. It earned a whopping $422 Million just at the box office, so it is no surprise that Disney wants to revisit such familiar/lucrative territory.
James Earl Jones, Hans Zimmer, and Elton John are the only people who worked on both movies, as the voice of Mufasa, the composer of the film, and songwriter. Jon Favreau is director.
The film will be released in theatres on July 19th 2019.
The Possession of Hannah Grace
The new movie is based on an exorcism that spins unprecedentedly out of proportion resulting in the untimely demise of a young woman, and we can’t make our mind up from any of the new movie trailers if this any good or not? Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) who is working the shift at the graveyard morgue, makes delivery of a disfigured cadaver, when she starts experiencing horrifying visions and suspects that a fearsome demonic force possesses the body.
Dutch filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen will direct the film. Brian Sieve writes the screenplay. The Possession of Hannah Grace will be released by Sony pictures to the theatres starting November 30th.
Once Upon A Deadpool
Once Upon a Deadpool is a Fox revamp of the years greatest R-rated hit, Deadpool 2. Details have emerged that the film will have a limited engagement that will begin on December 12 and ends on Christmas Eve. This film is rated 13 and is a box-office play targeting teens who are on school vacation. The most significant part of the film will be based on the footage of Deadpool 2 but has been edited to meet the PG-13 threshold of language and violence. It also features new footage in the essence of a framing sequence that was created by Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. Reynolds and his small crew of cronies filmed the framing scenes in a single action studded day, of guerilla-style filmmaking.
December 12th will see the film premiered by Fox studios.
Universal Pictures has just released a third full-length bunch of 2018 movie trailers of the sci-fi adaptation Mortal Engines that is based on a popular book series. The film storyline goes that an immensely apocalyptic event destroyed thousands of years after civilization, the people are forced to adapt to the changing times and a new way of living has been adopted.
Members of the diabolically eccentric cast are amongst Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Lang, Patrick Malahide, Robert Sheehan, Ronan Raftery, Jihae, and Leila George. It is written by Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, and Fran Walsh. The film is adapted from Philip Reeves book going by the same title.
Universal will release Mortal Engines in theatres everywhere on December 14th.
Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is depicted as a broke 80-year-old, who faces foreclosure on his business and is offered a job that only requires him to drive. Unknown to him he has been hired as a transporter of a Mexican drug cartel. Later, a handler is assigned to him because he thrives and his cargo grows exponentially, but in a new twist, the handler isn’t the only one watching Earl. He has come under the radar of a hard-charging DEA agent known as Colin Bates. His past mistakes start to weigh in, and he is not sure if he will be able to correct them before law enforcement and other cartels catch up to him. Actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood direct the film. Who doesn’t love Clint movies!
The Mules’ screenplay was written by Nick Schenk and will be released by Warner Bros in theatres starting December 14th.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
The animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has received new movie trailers from Sony pictures which are exponentially outstanding. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are the brains behind the film, which introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the endless capabilities of the Spider-verse, where the spiderman isn’t the only one that can don a mask. Filmmakers Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey direct the animation film. Phil Lord, Rodney Rothman, and Christopher Miller write the screenplay.
The film is in theatres December 14th.
