New Movie Trailers May 20

Sci-fi, drama, and strange and beautiful animations — we’ve got it all this week. It’s time to explore the week’s best new trailers, including new clips from Independence Day: Resurgence, Sausage Party and The BFG.

DON’T MISS: Your iPhone could look so much better than it does right now

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

This is a movie a war story. The war between the realities of battle and the public perception of it. Billy Lynn is brought back from Iraq as a hero, but only he knows what truly happened there. The film opens November 11th, starring Kristen Stewart, Joe Alwyn, Christ Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel and Steve Martin.


The second trailer for Ghostbusters is here, and it’s really not any better than the first one — at least judging by the likes vs. dislikes ratio on YouTube. That said, I’m still looking forward to it. Who else am I going to call?

Independence Day: Resurgence

We already looked at new Independence Day clips earlier, but just in case you missed them, here are three new videos for one of the most anticipated movies of the summer.

Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper is a drama set in Paris that tells the story of Maureen (Kristen Stewart) who’s about to have a spooky ghost experience. The movie hits theaters on October 19th, just in time for Halloween.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Andy Samberg is a pop star who will  do whatever it takes to make it to the top. Here’s a new trailer:

Sausage Party

We talked about Sausage Party before, but it’s time to check out the second trailer. It’s an animation hitting theaters August 12th, but it’s probably best to leave the kids home for this one. Sausage Party is an R-rated animated movie, and it tells the story of food items that find out what happens after they’re chosen by humans at the supermarket.


What do you get when you combine Roald Dahl’s story-telling, Steve Spielberg’s movie-making and Disney’s resources? You The BFG, a movie premiering on July 1st that you shouldn’t miss. This is the animation you want to bring your kids to see, and a new trailer tells us more about the giant in this story:

The Purge: Election Year

If you’ve seen The Purge: Anarchy, then you pretty much know what to expect from The Purge: Election Year. There’s violence and a whole lot of killing, and this time it all takes place in an election year. And it’s all still legal. Frank Grillo is back for this Purge episode that’s hitting theaters on July 1st.
