We love to share movie trailers. Aside from music videos, album trailers, tour teasers, and all the other video content bands typically supply us with, movie trailers are probably the thing we watch the most online. You may have noticed a few news posts with trailers in recent weeks, and you will no doubt see many more in the weeks and months ahead, but if we made a new post for every trailer that hit our inboxes we would never have time to post about anything else. So, to simplify your life and ours, we’ve compiled our five favorite trailers of the week from everything we haven’t previously covered into a single post. Enjoy!
Beauty And The Beast (March 17, 2017)
If you thought the live-action adaptation of Cinderella was a treat, this one is sure to be on your must-see list for 2017.
Synopsis: Prince Adam was cursed to a beast form by Enchantress, who saw no love in his arrogant heart for others. The one way he could break the spell was to learn to love another and earn her love in return before the last petal from his enchanted rose fell, which would bloom until his twenty-first birthday. But who could ever learn to love a beast? Ten years later, Maurice, an inventor from a nearby village, becomes lost in the woods and seeks shelter in the Beast’s castle, where the Beast imprisons him for trespassing. His daughter, Belle, a bookworm who dreams of life outside her provincial village, finds him trapped in the castle and offers her place instead. The Beast accepts with a promise she’ll remain in the castle forever. In the beginning, Belle views him as nothing more than a monster; he views her as difficult and stubborn—but the two soon taste the bittersweetness of finding you can change and learning you were wrong.
The Infiltrator (July 13)
Bryan Cranston faces off with Pablo Escobar. What more could you ask for?
Synopsis: Based on a true story, Federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.
Deepwater Horizon (September 30)
Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg sure do love turning real drama into Hollywood gold, and so far this one looks even better than Lone Survivor. We worry the trailer gives away a bit too much, but we’re totally sold.
Synopsis: On April 20, 2010, one of the world’s largest man-made disasters occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), this story honors the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever.
Clown (June 17)
This is the type of trailer that fuels our worst nightmares, and we cannot wait to see the final product.
Synopsis: The story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume—red nose and wig included—will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger.
The Space Between Us (August 19)
The only thing wrong with this trailer is the fact it shows WAY too much. Stop halfway through and save some mystery for the theater.
Synopsis: Described as being a “star-crossed science fiction love story,” The Space Between Us follows two teens from different worlds. Gardner Elliot, the first human born on Mars, is secretly raised in an experimental colony after his astronaut mother dies during childbirth. Sixteen years later, Gardner begins an online romance with a girl living in Colorado and hatches a plan to travel across the universe to meet her. Now, on the run, with Earth’s gravity threatening his very existence, Gardner must race against time and nature to find his love and win her heart. Once united, the two teens venture to seek out the enigmatic billionaire who funded the original expedition to Mars, in hopes of uncovering information about Gardner’s mother and the mysterious circumstances surrounding how Gardner came into existence.
