Trailers of the Week 04/07/16

Rogue One

Rogue One is a Star Wars prequel set right before Episode 4. It is the story of the Rebel team sent to steal the plans for the first Death Star. The latest trailer shows a dirty dozen style team infiltrating and battling the Empire. Jinn Asa, a rebel among rebels, leads the team. We also see a bounty hunter, a samurai, a pilot, and Forest Whitaker as a veteran fighter.


Finally, a full trailer has been released for The BFG. It was worth the wait. The mostly CG film has tons of heart and has me wanting to be swept away by a kind giant.

Synopsis: A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because unlike his peers refuses to eat boys and girls.

In theaters July 1st.

Swiss Army Man

This is a weird, charming mash up of Castaway and Weekend at Bernie’s. We love it! Harry Potter, aka Daniel Radcliff, is a corpse found by a lost traveler that he uses to survive. While this sounds kina gross, the trailer shows that corpse Daniel Radcliff starts talking, gaining abilities, and even a fart based rocket power.

Release date: June 17, 2016 (USA)


An ex-logger comes to the aid of a woman who returns to her hometown in the Pacific Northwest and finds herself harassed and stalked by a former cop turned crime lord.

The trailer is surprisingly suspenseful. It’s Ray Liotta versus Anthony Hopkins and Julia Stiles on June 10th, 2016.
