With Comic-Con in full swing in San Diego this week, we’ve already seen a bunch of exciting trailers for upcoming TV series. But now it’s time to check out some of the hottest trailers for future movies, and we have quite a few interesting ones for you.

DON’T MISS: Two of the best iPhone 7 leaks yet both surfaced last night

A Tale of Love and Darkness

Natalie Portman stars in A Tale of Love and Darkness. And we expect to get love and darkness set in Jerusalem during the second World War. Oh, and the movie marks the directorial debut of the actress, all the more reason to jot this title down. The movie comes out on August 19th.

Citizen Soldier

Opening August 30th, Citizen Soldier is an action/documentary about modern-day warfare, told from the point of view of US Army soldiers and based on actual real-life events in Afghanistan.

Hands of Stone

Robert de Niro in a movie about boxing? Sign me up. We’ve got de Niro playing trainer Ray Arcel and Edgar Ramirez playing Roberto Duran in Hands of Stone. The biography comes out August 26th.

London Road

A musical with Tom Hardy? Color us confused. And excited. London Road is a crime story, with plenty of singing in it. In London. London Road. The movie comes out September 9th, and you should be on the lookout for it.

Operation Avalanche


isn’t the only movie in this weekly trailer roundup that’s about spying. Operation Avalanche is particularly interesting, considering that it tells the story of four undercover CIA agents sent to NASA as a documentary film crew two years before a certain space mission. We won’t even spoil the trailer for you:


But of all the movies trailers we’re looking at today, Snowden is probably one of the most interesting ones, considering that it’s a story based on real-life events that only started happening a few years ago. This is likely to be the biggest story about spying and surveillance operations the world has ever seen, and the movie will try to explain it in a fun way. The best part about it is that we have no idea how this Snowden story ends. After all, it’s not clear what will happen to the world-renowned whistleblower.

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

is one of the movies I’m looking forward this August, and not only do we have a final trailer for it, featuring the master puppeteers, but also clips featuring some of our favorite anti-heroes, including the Joker. Harley Quinn, and Deadshot.

The Edge of Seventeen

If you expect The Edge of Seventeen to be some high-school-based comedy/drama, then that’s exactly what this picture proposes. Hailee Steinfeld will show us what growing up means in today’s world, and Woody Harrelson will be there to help out. The movie comes out September 30th

The Girl on the Train

Based on the epic book of the same name, The Girl on the Train should be an exciting thriller this October, starring Emily Blunt. Here’s the latest trailer.

The Magnificent Seven

This remake of The Magnificent Seven comes with a promising cast. Who doesn’t want to see Denzel Washington partner up with Chris Pratt for some western agent? Add to this pair five more fine individuals, including Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier, and you end up with am brand new take on an old story.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

Yes, absolutely we missed xXx, and, yes, Xander Cage will return early next year. Premiering on January 20th, 2017, xXx: Return of Xander Cage has a first trailer you need to see.

Chris Smith Senior Writer

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 brings his entertainment expertise to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and other blockbuster franchises.
