The latest film trailers that you need to watch
There were some big trailers shown during the Super Bowl last week.
There are lots of great films set to be released this year! Here are the best trailers that you need to watch.
Toy Story 4
The fourth instalment of Toy Story—everyone's favourite animated film series—is set to release later this year. The film follows Woody and the gang, along with a new toy called 'Forky', as they embark on a road trip where they bump into their old friend, Bo Peep. Tom Hanks—who voices Woody—says the final scene will be a 'moment in film history', so we're expecting the film to be a guaranteed tear-jerker when it is released on the 21st of June.
This film marks the 22nd in Marvel's groundbreaking Cinematic Universe and is a direct sequel to 2018's Avengers: Infinity War, which made an impressive $2 billion at the box office. The film is said to be a conclusion of the long list of 'MCU' films that date back to Iron Man in 2008 and is said to resolve the story arcs of several main characters. The Super Bowl teaser is the second trailer released for the film, with fans noting how little plot details have been revealed; if Marvel keeps up with the secrecy surrounding the events for the film, fans could be in for a unique and surprising conclusion to the year-long cliffhanger when it is released on the 25th of April.
Us is the second film directed by Jordan Peele, who won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his directorial debut Get Out. The film follows Lupita Nyong'o's (as Adelaide) and her family who spend some time at a beach house until their trip takes a disturbing turn as they are confronted by a group of their own doppelgängers. Peele's Get Out was a box office smash, so this horror film can be expected to get an equal reception when it's released on the 22nd of March.
If Beale Street Could Talk
This romantic-drama sees Tish, an African-American woman who is trying to clear her partner's name before the birth of their child. The film shows the struggle for justice in a 1970s New York, as the wrongly accused Fonny, faces the racial prejudice that got him into prison in the first place, as well as Trish's struggle to get her voice heard as a pregnant black woman. The acting in the film has received critical acclaim, with Regina King winning several awards including a Critics Choice and Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress—the film has also received three Oscar nominations. It will be released in UK cinemas on the 8th of February.
This biographical drama is adapted from Gerrard Conley's memoir; it follows Jared (based on Gerrard), who is forced by his religious parents to take part in a gay conversion therapy program. Leading actor, Lucas Hedge, has been praised for his performance and gained a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor; the film also received a Best Original Song nomination for Troye Sivan's 'Revelation', with Sivan himself appearing as a main character in the film. Performances by Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe also receive praise, pulling in audiences for the emotional rollercoaster that is Boy Erased. The film will be released in UK cinemas on the 8th of February.
