Watch: Zack Snyder's Fun 'Star Wars' + 'Batman v Superman' Mashup

Star Wars & Batman v Superman Mashup

"There is a great disturbance in the Force…" What if Batman and Superman fought with lightsabers? What if the DC universe had Jedi? What if Jabba the Hut was Superman's ultimate villain? This is just a fun trailer made by a fan, and we'll never see this crossover in real life, but it's worth a quick watch anyway. According to TrailerTrack, this mashup was made by Zack Snyder (or at least posted by him on one of his own social media accounts) and includes a title card at the end stating: Dark Side Knight v SuperJedi: Dawn of the Alliance. This trailer isn't perfect, but is an amusing mashup of the two universes. Check it out below.

David Oyelowo & Rosamund Pike in US Trailer for 'A United Kingdom'

A United Kingdom Trailer

"I will never achieve anything worthwhile if I leave my heart here…" Fox Searchlight has debuted a new official US trailer for the romantic drama A United Kingdom, which premiered to positive reviews out of TIFF a few months ago. The film tells the true story of Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and their governments. David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike star as the couple. The cast also includes Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Jack Davenport, Charlotte Hope, and Jessica Oyelowo. This film, along with Jeff Nichols' Loving, are two films that show the power of love and how it transcends race and class and other barriers of society. I'm still looking forward to catching this film myself.

Order Up! Second Trailer for 'The Founder' Starring Michael Keaton

The Founder Trailer

The Weinstein Company has released a second trailer for The Founder, from director John Lee Hancock, starring Oscar nominee Michael Keaton as McDonald's founder Ray Kroc. This was delayed from release in August, but has been earning great buzz from early screenings. The story is actually about how Kroc sort of "stole" the burger business from the McDonald brothers, played by Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch, who originally came up with the idea for a fast food burger joint in the 1950s. Also starring Laura Dern, Linda Cardellini, Patrick Wilson and B.J. Novak. TWC also just announced the film is playing in one theater in Los Angeles this week for Oscar qualification, before eventually (re-)opening in January.

Watch: Official US Trailer for Biohacking Thriller 'Origin' from Sweden

Origin Trailer

"I'm not going to let you die at all." An official US trailer has debuted for an indie Swedish sci-fi film titled Origin, based around "biohacking". As described on their poster, "biohacking" is the exploitation of genetic material (for criminal purposes). The film is about three students at a university who discover a way to make cells age slower. It's a film about "love, ambition and finding yourself." Starring Emelia Hansson, Rikard Björk, Rafael Pettersson and Sandra Redlaff. This film is made by friends of FS, Swedish filmmakers Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft, who made two shorts we've written about before: Logan and Double Trouble. Origin is their feature debut and their film will be available on iTunes as of next week. Take a look.

Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan in Full Trailer for 'Fifty Shades Darker'

Fifty Shades Darker

"Do you want to be kept, or have respect?" This should be labeled as a "Don't Watch", but that will probably just entice more people to watch it. Universal has debuted a second full-length trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel titled Fifty Shades Darker, directed this time by James Foley (of Glengarry Glen Ross). It's full of as much sex, sleaze and cheese as they can pack in - you've been warned. Dakota Johnson returns to play Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan returns to play her tormented lover Christian Grey. Despite breaking up, they obviously get back together, but there's a mysterious ghost girl - or something like that. Also starring Kim Basinger, Tyler Hoechlin, Bella Heathcote, Hugh Dancy, Max Martini, Marcia Gay Harden, Rita Ora and Luke Grimes. Really, this isn't worth your time, but have at it if you wish.

First Trailer for William Oldroyd's 'Lady Macbeth' with Florence Pugh

Lady Macbeth Trailer

"A seductive mix of sex and murder." Roadside Attractions has unveiled a trailer for the film Lady Macbeth, an adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's novella "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk". This classic period piece thriller is set during the 19th century, and involves a young woman being sold into a marriage with a middle-aged man that abuses her, so she figures out a way to get rid of him. Florence Pugh plays Katherine, and the cast includes Christopher Fairbank, Cosmo Jarvis, Bill Fellows, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie, and Ian Conningham. This already premiered at film festivals earlier this fall, and is also playing at the Sundance Film Festival coming up in January. Not really my kind of film, but might be interesting to some. See below.

Watch: First Trailer for 'The Circle' Adaptation Starring Emma Watson

The Circle Trailer

Love it when we get surprises like this. EuropaCorp USA has revealed a trailer for the adaptation of the best-selling book The Circle, about a mysterious tech company that hires a young woman who learns there's more to this place than it seems. The book by Dave Eggers is very popular right now, and they made this adaptation very quickly. Emma Watson stars, along with Tom Hanks as the CEO of the company, plus Karen Gillan, John Boyega, Bill Paxton, Patton Oswalt, Glenne Headly, Ellar Coltrane, Ellen Wong, Poorna Jagannathan and Nate Corddry. This is the latest film from one of my favorite directors, James Ponsoldt, of The Spectacular Now and End of the Tour. And it looks damn good. Dive in.

Stephen Dorff Plays a Country Singer in Official Trailer for 'Wheeler'

Wheeler Trailer

"It all begins with a song…" Momentum Pictures has unveiled a full trailer for a film titled Wheeler, a faux-documentary about an aspiring country music singer from Texas who heads to Nashville to make his dream come true. Actor Stephen Dorff plays Wheeler, underneath lots of make-up and a heavy country western accent, and no one knew it was him when he was making the film. As explained by Rolling Stone: "only a handful of the cast knew that it was Dorff underneath the makeup, and fans at the Bluebird Café, where he performed, were also unaware." Nice work pulling that off. I can't tell if this film is making fun of country music, or just having fun creating a fake musician, but it actually looks like it's worth checking out.

Teaser Trailer for Michael Bay's Latest 'Transformers: The Last Knight'

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer

Paramount has unleashed the first trailer for Michael Bay's latest Transformers sequel, Transformers: The Last Knight, yet again starring Mark Wahlberg (who was introduced in Age of Extinction). This sequel puts an interesting spin on things, with the Transformers going back to medieval times and meeting up with King Arthur for an adventure. The full cast includes 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. I lost interest in this series after the last movie, but they're really trying to make us care again with this fun back-in-time storyline. It honestly doesn't look as bad as I was expecting. What do you think?

Second Trailer for Schoolyard 'Fist Fight' with Charlie Day vs Ice Cube

Fist Fight Trailer

"Two teachers are in a school fight to end all school fights." Warner Bros has released a second trailer for the comedy Fist Fight, featuring teachers played by Ice Cube and Charlie Day, who organize an epic battle at the end of the school year. This trailer is much better than the first trailer, showing just how much it might actually deliver in full on the "fist fight" epic battle concept. The cast also features Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Dennis Haysbert, and JoAnna Garcia Swisher. This is such a crazy simple concept for a movie, but it just might work. As long as they don't cop out with something lame at the end, when the actual fight is supposed to happen, I'm down to go see this. Have fun.

New International Trailer for 'Patriots Day' Starring Mark Wahlberg

Patriots Day Trailer

"We've got to decide who's running this, and we've got to decide quickly." eOne Films has unveiled another new international trailer for Peter Berg's Patriots Day, the emotional action thriller about the true story of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. Mark Wahlberg stars as Sgt. Tommy Saunders, with the full cast featuring Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Bacon, J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Michael Beach, Alex Wolff, Melissa Benoist and Rachel Brosnahan. This international trailer differs slightly from the other two US trailers, including actual audio during the explosions and a much more intense tone - more suspenseful than the other trailers. The focus in this seems to be the manhunt, with lots of action at the end.

Watch: First Full Trailer for 'The Mummy' Reboot Starring Tom Cruise

The Mummy Trailer

"I saw her… She is real." Universal has debuted the first official trailer for the new 2017 version of The Mummy, this time starring Tom Cruise in a movie directed by Alex Kurtzman. Cruise plays Nick Morton, one of the main characters who digs up the new "mummy", a priestess named Ahmanet played by Sofia Boutella. She unleashes a fury unlike anything seen in modern times, ushering in a "new world of gods and monsters". The rest of the cast includes Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Javier Botet. I'm actually a big fan of the 1999 version of The Mummy, and I'm not so sure about this new movie. It looks way too VFX driven and flashy, but it might turn out okay. Take a look below.
