Official Trailer for Animated 'Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie'

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Trailer

"You are now the amazing Captain Underpants!!" 20th Century Fox has unveiled an official trailer for the animated Captain Underpants movie, titled in full - Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. This is based on the very popular books by Dav Pilkey about two mischievous kids who hypnotize their mean elementary school principal and turn him into their comic book creation, the kind-hearted and elastic-banded Captain Underpants. Kevin Hart voices George, and Thomas Middleditch voices Harold, with Ed Helms voicing their principal. Also featuring Nick Kroll, Jordan Peele and Kristen Schaal. As fun as this looks in a few scenes, DreamWorks tends to focus too much on the goofy comedy, and not enough on the story or characters. I'm sure it will be good for kids, but this doesn't seem like the big hit of the summer.

Rachel Weisz in Second Trailer for Romantic Thriller 'My Cousin Rachel'

My Cousin Rachel Trailer

"Don't close the door, I cannot be alone with you." Fox Searchlight has debuted a second trailer for the new romantic thriller My Cousin Rachel, starring Rachel Weisz in a period piece based on Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name. Weisz plays the alluring cousin of a young Englishman, who falls for her as he attempts to seek revenge on her for supposedly murdering his guardian. Sam Claflin co-stars, along with Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, Andrew Knott, and Poppy Lee Friar. There's some impressive cinematography in this, thanks to DP Mike Eley (Nanny McPhee Returns), but as for the rest of it I'm not sure if it's for me. There is a great deal of sexual tension and confusion and all that good stuff. Take a peek.

Meet Captain Salazar in New Trailer for 'POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales'

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

"Pirates had infected the seas for generation, so I vowed to eliminate them all. Jack Sparrow cursed me. I will have my revenge." Disney has launched a new 60-second trailer preview for the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth Pirates movie so far. This new trailer focuses primarily on Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, telling us a bit more of his story about how he was "cursed" by Jack Sparrow, and has come back from the dead to get his revenge. Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack, along with Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa. The full cast includes Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, David Wenham, Kevin McNally, Golshifteh Farahani, plus surprises from past films. This is a follow-up to the full-length trailer released earlier this month, and features a bit of extra footage. Dive in.

Watch: Brian Cox as Churchill in First Trailer for New 'Churchill' Film

Churchill Trailer

"We must launch now." Lionsgate UK has released a trailer for the new Winston Churchill film titled simply Churchill, from Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky. Brian Cox stars as Churchill in the film, joining a shortlist of talented actors who have played the prominent politician - including Albert Finney, Richard Burton, David Ryall, and Brendan Gleeson. There's also another totally different Churchill film due out this year, starring Gary Oldman. This particular film is described as a "ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill in the 24 hours before D-Day." The cast includes John Slattery, Miranda Richardson, Ella Purnell, James Purefoy, Richard Durden, and Julian Wadham. This definitely looks intriguing, with some strong moments, but I'm much more interested in seeing Gary Oldman's film more. Take a look below.

New US Trailer for Herzog's 'Queen of the Desert' with Nicole Kidman

Queen of the Desert

"The deeper we immersive ourselves into the desert, the more everything seems like a dream." IFC Films has released yet another official US trailer for the Werner Herzog feature film Queen of the Desert. This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival way back in 2015 and was originally slated for release that year. Unfortunately it's a totally awful film, with no redeeming qualities (despite a rather intriguing cast) and was shelved for two years. It looks like this is finally going to see the light of day, and it's going to be forgotten quickly, but here's the new trailer anyway. Nicole Kidman stars as the legendary Gertrude Bell, who was an important British figure in Middle East relations in the early 1900s. The cast includes James Franco as Henry Cadogan, Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence and Damian Lewis as Charles Doughty-Wylie. I mean it when I say this film is terrible - don't let that cast fool you, this isn't worth your time. Move along.

First Trailer for McDonagh's 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Trailer

"All this anger, man… It just begets greater anger." Fox Searchlight has revealed an official trailer for the new dark comedy from filmmaker Martin McDonagh, of the movies In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths previously. The title is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is quite an impressive title for a film, but I like it because it is so unique. The film is about exactly what the title says - three billboards outside of the town of Ebbing, Missouri that are purchased by a local resident who is upset about a lack of any progress from the police to discover who murdered her daughter. Frances McDormand stars as the woman at the center of it all, and the exceptional ensemble cast also includes Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Kathryn Newton, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, and Lucas Hedges. This seems like it's going to be such an outstanding film, perhaps a big sleeper hit if it's as good as it looks.

Third Trailer for Seth Gordon's 'Baywatch' Movie Actually Looks Good

Baywatch Movie Trailer

"You've got one job - make sure swim happy white people don't drown." Paramount released a third trailer for the summer comedy Baywatch, the movie, from director Seth Gordon. We've seen a few other trailers for this movie so far, and yet as much as I want to hate this movie, it actually looks good. Seriously, it looks laugh-out-loud funny, and weird, and self-aware, and full of odd but genuinely amusing comedic moments. Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson star as two feuding, hunky Baywatch lifeguards; along with Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Pamela Anderson, Ilfenesh Hadera, Charlotte McKinney, Kelly Rohrbach, Hannibal Buress, plus of course David Hasselhoff. As another website said, this is the kind of movie you're going to pretend you don't want to see this summer, but will sneak into a showing and enjoy.

Spring Break Vacation Posting Update - We'll Return Again Next Week

Athens Sunset

It's time for a brief pause in the usual excitement. I'm currently on a vacation, taking a spring break holiday for the week. We'll return to normal next week with regular updates again. Last year I took a life-long-dream trip to Nepal in March and stopped writing anything for the entire month, this time it's just a week. It's also my birthday this week, and I'm looking forward to just relaxing and taking my mind off of everything. The big new releases opening on March 24th, this weekend, are CHIPS, the Power Rangers movie, and the sci-fi space thriller Life. We'll be catching up with any trailers as they arrive, but in the meantime, there's nothing major going on. Thank you for understanding, and for your continued support. We'll be back soon.

Official Trailer for 'Burden' Documentary About the Artist Chris Burden

Burden Doc Trailer

"I'm not about death, I didn't want to die, but I wanted to come close." Magnolia has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled Burden, telling the story of artist Chris Burden, who made his place in art history in 1971 with dangerous performances. The film features Burden himself, as well as Jonathan Gold, Marina Abramovic, Frank Gehry, Alexis Smith, and Brian Sewell. The description says the doc examines "the artist’s works and private life with an innovative mix of still-potent videos of his 70s performances, personal videos and audio recordings, friends fellow students and colleagues, critics’ comments and latter day footage at his Topanga Canyon studio, all peppered with his thoughts and musings through the years." This definitely looks fascinating, and I'm intrigued to learn more about Burden and his motivations for this.

For the Kids - Second Trailer for Bay's 'Transformers: The Last Knight'

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer

"You think I'm afraid of you?!" Paramount has launched a new full-length trailer for Michael Bay's latest Transformers sequel, titled Transformers: The Last Knight. This new trailer is totally focused on the kids in the movie, a cast of youngsters who have to deal with the Decepticons coming back for revenge. Why the focus on the kids? Because this trailer was created exclusively to run in theaters with Beauty and the Beast, of course. The full cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, John Goodman, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner, Santiago Cabrera, and Liam Garrigan as King Arthur; plus the same voices as before: Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Ken Watanabe. This is a very odd trailer, I don't think I like it much, but points for doing something different.

Second Trailer for Fox's 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul' Sequel

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

"There's a new hero who dares to be… wimpy." Fox has debuted the official theatrical trailer for the latest sequel in the comedy series Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this one subtitled The Long Haul, about a family road trip. This is the fourth movie in the cinematic franchise based on the series of books by Jeff Kinney. Young actor Jason Drucker plays Greg, who convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. The cast includes Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott, and Alicia Silverstone. Surprisingly, this trailer is better than the teaser trailer but cuts out all the gaming convention footage. This actually looks like it might be an enjoyable road trip comedy, but I'm still not going to watch it.

Official Trailer for HBO's 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' Movie

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Trailer

"Science took her cells. Her family reclaimed her story." HBO has unveiled an official trailer for a film titled The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, adapted from the book of the same name, telling the story of Henrietta Lacks. Lacks died of cervical cancer in 1951, but her cells were taken without her permission for medical research, and they eventually became the first "immortal" human cells. Renée Elise Goldsberry plays Henrietta. The movie follows two timelines, the second involving her ancestors fighting to reclaim her name in medical history. Oprah Winfrey stars as Lacks' daughter, with a cast including Rose Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Lisa Arrindell, and Reed Birney. This is technically a "made-for-TV" movie, but we're making an exception because this is an HBO production, and they're at the top of their game recently.
