James Franco & Bryan Cranston Battle in First Trailer for 'Why Him?'

Why Him? Trailer

Of all the guys his daughter could have chosen… Why Him? 20th Century Fox has debuted a trailer for the new comedy Why Him?, about a father dealing with the totally insane boy that his charming daughter has chosen to marry. Bryan Cranston stars as the father, and James Franco stars as the boy - a tattoo-covered "internet billionaire", with Zoey Deutch as his daughter. The full cast includes Megan Mullally, Keegan-Michael Key, Griffin Gluck, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson and Zack Pearlman. I get what they're going for with this, but some of the scenes in this are excruciatingly bad. That said, the battles between Cranson and Franco might be amusing. Give the red band trailer a whirl and tell us what you think.

Watch: Ellen Page Takes a Baby in Official Trailer for Indie 'Tallulah'

Tallulah Trailer

"That's just no way to live, she needs you…" Netflix has debuted the official trailer for an indie film called Tallulah, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Ellen Page stars as Tallulah, a struggling homeless woman who ends up with an impromptu babysitting job for a wealthy, careless mother and takes the baby for herself. This is a drama but has some good levity in it, as you'll see in this trailer. Tallulah is trying to do the right thing by actually giving the baby genuine love and care, which her real mother was not providing. Also starring Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Zachary Quinto, John Benjamin Hickey and Uzo Aduba. It's a solid film, with a strong performance by Ellen Page. Take a look.

Must Watch: First Trailer for Terrence Malick's Doc 'Voyage of Time'

Voyage of Time Documentary Trailer

"The universe… billions of years in the making." Four decades in the making, it's time to finally experience Terrence Malick's new documentary Voyage of Time later this year. The first trailer has debuted online for the epic IMAX documentary which spans the entirety of time as we know it - from the big bang and the beginning of the universe to the dinosaur age to the age of humans. The description claims this initial release will only be 40 minutes, featuring Brad Pitt narration, when it hits IMAX theaters this October. Hopefully there's a longer version that will be released down the line, but for now this is an exciting look at what's to come. This trailer features footage of galaxies being created and cells being formed and animals taking shape, and it looks so mesmerizing. I can't wait to see this! Bring on Malick's journey through time.

Watch: Official Trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Sully' Starring Tom Hanks

Sully Trailer

"I want you to know, I did the best I could." Warner Bros has unveiled a trailer for Clint Eastwood's latest film, titled Sully, telling the "untold" true story of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, played by Tom Hanks. Captain Sully is the pilot who successfully and safely glided a malfunctioning US Airways airplane into the Hudson River in 2009 in order to save the lives of everyone onboard. The film also stars Aaron Eckhart as Sully's co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Laura Linney as Sully's wife, Lorraine Sullenberger. This is an intriguing trailer, it cuts smoothly between the time after the landing and before, showing bits of Sully's life leading up to and directly after. I really like the way this trailer plays out, looking forward to seeing this.

New Trailer for David Mackenzie's 'Hell or High Water' Modern Western

Hell or High Water Trailer

"Well if that ain't Texan, then I don't know what is…" CBS Films has released another great trailer for the modern western Hell or High Water, directed by David Mackenzie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. I saw the film there and it's surprisingly fantastic, with an outstanding script by Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario previously) that drives strong performances from the entire cast. Chris Pine and Ben Foster star as brothers who decide to rob a couple of banks in small towns in Texas. Close to retirement, the Texas Ranger who decides to hunt them down is Marcus, played by Jeff Bridges. The cast includes Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey, Kevin Rankin, Marin Ireland and Gil Birmingham. I really dug this film, and I definitely recommend it, so if this trailer grabs your interest make sure to see it in theaters.

First Trailer for Joost & Schulman's Horror 'Viral' About a Creepy Virus

Viral Trailer

Fear what's inside. The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the horror thriller Viral, produced by Jason Blum and directed by filmmakers Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman, who also made this year's film Nerve. Viral is about a young woman documenting her new life in quarantine after a virus kills off most people. She is also trying to protect her infected sister, which is what leads to all of the problems. The film stars Sofia Black-D'Elia, Analeigh Tipton, Travis Tope, and Michael Kelly. This almost seems like a weird mix between Species and Contagion, something like that, and it doesn't look so bad. Fire it up below.

Watch This: Badass Cyberpunk Short 'Virtual' or 'La Caja de Pandora'

La Caja de Pandora

"We are risking everything in this match!" Always love stumbling across work like this. Thanks to a tip from Quiet Earth, there's a short film worth watching if you haven't seen it yet. Titled Virtual, or Pixel Theory: La Caja de Pandora, the film is set in the future where virtual reality has become so advance that most people spend most of their lives in a VR world. Juno is a professional player of a video game called "Laserball", but when he is killed in-game he must spend a few hours in the real world where he is reunited with this father. The video game has outstanding VFX, and it opens with some badass action before delving into the story. There is a Kickstarter for a full feature but they won't make their goal. Take a look anyway.

Miles Teller as Boxer Vinny Pazienza in First 'Bleed For This' Trailer

Bleed For This Trailer

Open Road Films has debuted the first official trailer for a movie called Bleed For This, starring talented young actor Miles Teller as World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza. Paz's story is fascinating - he started to rise in the boxing world in the early 90s, winning the junior middleweight world title, but broke his neck in a serious car accident. Doctors told him he may never walk again, but Paz returned to the ring thirteen months after the accident and made one of the greatest comebacks in the history of boxing. The full cast includes Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Aaron Eckhart, Ted Levine, Kimberly Howe and Amanda Clayton. As expected, Teller looks fantastic in this, giving us yet another boxing movie to cheer for this fall.

First Full Trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Newest Movie 'Trolls'

Trolls Movie Trailer

Find your happy place. 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation's newest movie titled Trolls, a feature version of those funky little toy trolls that you used to collect as kids. Maybe not you, but someone out there collected them. Believe it or not, the movie is actually a musical with songs written specifically for it - as heard in this trailer. Featuring original music from Justin Timberlake, the film stars the voice talent of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Gwen Stefani and many more. I like the way they show the actors actually dancing in the trailer, but the rest of this just seems wacky. It might be enjoyable? Have fun.

Star Trek Beyond TV Spots

"Can you imagine what we'll find?" "Aliens hell bent on killing us?" In addition to the recent final trailer, Paramount has unveiled three excellent TV spots for Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond sequel - arriving in theaters in late July. Thankfully there's no Rihanna song distracting from the movie, instead we get some impressive footage from this upcoming space adventure that looks like it may actually be much better than Into Darkness. The full cast includes all the returning Enterprise crew members: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin. Newcomers this time are Joe Taslim, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutella as Jaylah. I'm really digging the epic feel of this one, bring it.

"What do you want from me?" "Your past." Get another glimpse at the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie in this new international trailer for the video game adaptation, starring Michael Fassbender as Aguilar, directed by Justin Kurzel.

This newest trailer has a few more bits of action hidden within, including a shot of Fassbender firing a bow & arrow and a big fight on a rooftop. The full cast includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Callum Turner, as well as Ariane Labed as Maria. I actually think this looks quite cool, I'm looking forward to checking it out later this year.

Vincent Cassel & Emmanuelle Bercot in Full US Trailer for 'My King'

My King Trailer

"We don't know each other." Film Movement has debuted an official US trailer for the upcoming release of Maïwenn's My King, originally titled Mon roi, a French relationship drama starring Vincent Cassel & Emmanuelle Bercot. Bercot plays Tony, a woman who wakes up in a hospital after a serious ski accident and recounts her "turbulent relationship" with a man named Georgio. The full cast includes Louis Garrel, Isild Le Besco and Chrystèle Saint Louis Augustin. This is actually a solid trailer, using music to help enhance the emotions in each scene rather than dialogue. And the film seems like a very powerful look and romance and love and the troubles that come with passion. Worth a watch even if you're unsure about this.

Watch: First Trailer for Xavier Dolan's 'It's Only the End of the World'

It's Only the End of the World Trailer

"Secrets, sorrows, rancour…" The first official trailer has debuted online for the latest Xavier Dolan film, titled It's Only the End of the World, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The film is based on a play and takes place mostly inside one home. Gaspard Ulliel stars as a man who returns to his childhood home with plans to tell his family about his upcoming death, but his return reignites tensions between everyone again. The full cast includes Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Léa Seydoux. I'm a huge fan of Xavier Dolan, but I admit this might be my least favorite film he's made. This new trailer provides a good sense of what to expect, including some of the tension between the family.
