8 new movie trailers you need to watch this week

New Movie Trailers Apr. 8

Last week’s trailers roundup included clips for many upcoming comedies and horror pictures, but this week we’re back with a more diverse set of new films. There’s Rogue One, The BFG, a new Batman animated movie, and many others.

All the Way

All the Way is a TV movie launching May 21st on HBO, but that doesn’t make it any less of an event. Bryan Cranston plays Lyndon B. Johnson looking to pass the Civil Rights Act in the year following the assassination of JFK.

Batman: The Killing Joke

Batman v. Superman is killing it at the box office in spite of not-so-stellar reviews right now. But there’s a new Batman movie to look forward to, the Batman: The Killing Joke.

Captain America: Civil War

The third Captain America movie will bring us a huge conflict between our favorite heroes, and may very well be one of the best titles in the Marvel cinematic universe. We’ve already seen plenty of videos for Civil War, but a new trailer was released this week, titled The Past is Prelude. Check it out below.

Rogue One

The new teaser trailer and a teaser for this year’s Star Wars movie were released a few days ago. Rogue One tells the story of a battle between old rebels and the Empire, with the fate of the Death Star being at stake – of course, we know the Death Star will be destroyed anyway. The movie launches in mid-December, and the trailers follow below.

Search Party

We could very well call Search Party a Hangover wannabe. The trailer certainly says it’s a Hangover-like story. Will it be fun? Probably. Original? Not so much. The movie debuts May 13th, starring Adam Pally, T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, and many others.

Swiss Army Man

Daniel Radcliffe – yes, Harry Potter – is dead for the entire duration of this movie. Swiss Army Man has certainly impressed Sundance, and you’ll see it in cinemas on June 17th. Joining Radcliffe we’ve got Paly Dano and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Tale of Tales

There are plenty of strange things happening in this Tale of Tales, and you won’t be able to tell exactly what’s going on. I know I can’t. But I’m intrigued by the potential court intrigues and monsters in this one. The movie opens on April 22nd, starring Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly, and many others.


Disney’s The BFG is also a movie to look forward to this July. After a trailer left us wanting more in December, we finally got to see the big friendly giant in a new trailer released this week.

Chris Smith has been covering consumer electronics ever since the iPhone revolutionized the industry in 2008. When he’s not writing about the most recent tech news for BGR, he closely follows the events in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and other blockbuster franchises. Outside of work, you’ll catch him streaming almost every new movie and TV show release as soon as it's available.
