As we predicted last week, movie studios unleashed a bunch of new trailers this week in the wake of Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony. Below we’ve plucked nine of the most promising trailers released this week, headlined by the trailer for the new Ghostbusters movie.
30 years after the original Ghostbusters stole our hearts, an all-female crew is ready to take over the job. And what a cast we have for this one: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Dan Aykroyd is credited with the script, and Chris Hemsworth, Bill Murray, and Sigourney Weaver are also part of this Ghostbusters revival that launches July 15th. Who you gonna call?
The Finding Nemo sequel focuses on that forgetful blue tang fish that we loved in the first installment of this Pixar franchise. The movie hits cinemas on July 17th and stars Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Hayden Rolence, Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Idris Elba, and many others.
Ice Age: Collision Course
Finding Dory won’t be the only animated movie your kids will want to see this year. Add the new Ice Age: Collision Course movie to that list, which is launching July 22nd. We’ve got the same gang we’ve grown to love, including Manny, Diego, Sid, and Scrat. This time, they’re involved in a spacey adventure, with Scrat kicking things into high gear after he catapults himself outside of Earth. Here’s the brand new trailer:
Maggie’s Plan is a hilarious comedy that tells the story of Maggie (Greta Gerwig) and her complicated love life. She falls in love with John (Ethan Hawke) who’s married to Georgette (Julianne Moore). But then Maggie falls out of love and wants John to reconcile with Georgette. What could go wrong with Maggie’s Plan? The movie comes out May 20th.
Set to debut on April 22nd, Nina tells the hidden story of Nina Simone, who’s played by none other than Zoe Saldana, her rise to fame and troubled life. The cast also includes David Oyelowo playing her manager Clifton Henderson.
The Angry Birds Movie
After a rather strange first trailer, we get to see a new clip that explains the story of the official Angry Birds Movie. The movie comes out on May 20th and stars Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Danny McBride, and Peter Dinklage. See the new trailer below.
The Man Who Knew Infinity
The Man Who Knew Infinity is a movie about math geniuses that opens on April 8th. Starring Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel, the film tells the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar, an Indian mathematician who took the world by surprise with his math theories at the beginning of the 20th century after being admitted to Cambridge University during the first World War.
This April, Susan Sarandon stars in a brand new comedy-drama. Sarandon plays a woman who follows her daughter to Los Angeles after her husband passes away. The Meddler opens on April 22nd.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
What do you get when you mix Tina Fey’s romantic comedies with a serious matter like the Afghanistan war? A movie that’s called Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and it opens today in cinemas around the world. Is it a good idea to have Tina Fey in charge of such a film? We’ll have to wait and see the movie, but until then, here are a few TV ads that were released earlier this week for the film.
