As always, this week has been an exciting one for trailers. Every calendar week provides a handful of new trailers, as studios attempt to drum up excitement about upcoming releases. The past few days offered the first glimpse at certain movies, and a deeper examination of others. But there's a chance you might missed at least some of these trailers dropping. Luckily, that's what we're here for.
CinemaBlend is here for entertainment news you care about, and that definitely includes trailers. And in order to keep cinephiles updated on the latest, we're compiling the biggest trailers arriving online each week. Check them out below, and plan your next trip to the movies accordingly.
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
This one was a long time coming, and helped break the internet when it finally arrived a few days ago. Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey is the next DC movie set within the greater DCEU, and moviegoers are excited to jump back in. The movie will also bring back Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, and if this trailer is any indication, the movie is almost wholly focused on the femme fatale. She narrates, and gets far more screen time than the rest of her co-stars. We'll have to see if this changes as we get closer to the movie's release. Joining Margot Robbie are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, and Chris Messina as iconic characters from the DC comics world. The movie will hit theaters on February 7th 2020.
Clint Eastwood has had a prolific career as a filmmaker, so each of his new movies have a ton of excitement and anticipation behind them. That's certainly the case with Richard Jewell, based off a harrowing true story. The movie follows the story of real-life security guard Richard Jewell, who helped foil the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996. While he helped save lives, Jewell became a suspect in the attack, and became a target in the media. BlacKkKlansman and I, Tonya actor Paul Walter Hauser plays the title character, with Eastwood assembling a strong supporting cast to help tell the story. This includes Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Olivia Wilde, and Jon Hamm. The movie is expected to be an Oscar contender this year, and will arrive in theaters on December 13th.
Speaking of iconic directors, Michael Bay is coming to Netflix. All sorts of Bayhem will hit the streaming service with 6 Underground, which looks like it'll be a fun and over the top action adventure. The movie stars six individuals who fake their own deaths to become an elite squad of vigilantes. The cast is lead by Ryan Reynolds, with the combination of the Deadpool actor and Bay enough to excite any action fans out there. Joining Reynolds are Ben Hardy, Corey Hawkins, and Dave Franco. This first trailer revealed how over the top the action of the upcoming blockbuster is going to be. What's more, it's somewhat depressing to that it won't get a wide theatrical release, considering the scale of the project. Alas, you'll be able to stream 6 Underground on December 13th.
The Kings's Man
Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman franchise has become one of the more unique action franchises. He balances over the top gadgets with quirky characters and snappy dialogue, allowing Eggsy and company to never take themselves too seriously. While there are still plans for a third Kingsman movie, the property will go to fresh places with a prequel. Cheekily titled The King's Man, Vaughn's upcoming blockbuster will explain how the organization was formed, and looks like it'll have a far more realistic feel to it. Ralph Fiennes leads the cast alongside Harris Dickinson. The duo will be battling against the infamous Rasputin, played by Harry Potter actor Rhys Ifans. The cast also includes Stanley Tucci and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The King's Man has the ability to greatly expand the larger Kingsman franchise, making way for more spinoffs, in addition to the main storyline. The movie will hit theaters on February 14th, 2020.
The Gentlemen is an upcoming mob action thriller from Sherlock Holmes and Aladdin director Guy Ritchie. It follows a drug kingpin (Matthew McConaughey), and the various forces that attempt to encroach on his business. The first trailer is loud and quirky, allowing each member of the strong cast to get in a one liner or two before the end of its runtime. Hugh Grant is a particular scene stealer, narrating through the trailer and revealing the various players involved in the scheme. There's also plenty of gunfire and action scenes teased, which is sure to help keep moviegoers excited. The rest of the cast is also shown off in this first trailer, including Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, Michelle Dockery, and Jeremy Strong. The Gentlemen will hit theaters January 24th, 2020.
6 Underground wasn't the only Netflix movie to release its first trailer this week. Another trailer hit the internet, just in time for Halloween season: Eli. Directed by
Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2), the movie is essentially the horror version of Bubble Boy. We see young Eli (Charlie Shotwell), who moves to a new home in order to get treatment for his mysterious illness. His doctor is The Conjuring's Lili Taylor, who looks like she'll be a fascinating villain. Aside from battling physical treatments, there appears to be a malevolent force inside the new house. While he's told they're just nightmares, the trailer teases something far more terrifying. Stranger Things' Sadie Sink also stars as Eli's young friend, who communicates with him from outside the house's walls. Eli will be made available to stream on Netflix October 18th, just in time for Halloween.
There are clearly a variety of exciting projects approaching their release, for both theaters and streaming. The film industry has changed quite a bit over the years, with streaming services opening up the possibilities of filmmaking. Netflix has been a powerhouse in this regard, regularly releasing new and exciting content for its myriad subscribers. Two of those movies debut their trailers this week, but there's also some Oscar potential with Martin Scorsese's The Irishman. It should be interesting to see how this continues changing the film world, and whether other streaming services like Amazon and Hulu can keep up the same pace. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
