It’s a Friday and what better way to avoid your end of week tasks and prepare for the weekend than keeping up to date with this week’s new film and TV trailers.
Toy Story 4
Toy Story is back for its final instalment…again. Toy Story 3 was billed as the last in the series, but Woody, Buzz and the gang are back for another adventure and we’re definitely not complaining. Toy Story 4 introduces a new toy to the team, Forky, a homemade toy made from a spork that seems to be struggling with its new identity. Even though the Toy Story format now feels a little familiar we can’t wait for this to come out on June 21st.
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum
In the original movie, Keanu Reeves character – the world’s deadliest assassin – was very reluctantly forced out of retirement as some young gang members killed his dog (“It wasn’t just a puppy”). Now, with the franchise on to its third movie, John Wick must be wondering how long it will be until he gets to settle down and enjoy some much deserved time off. In cinemas May 17th.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
“The 9th Film from Quentin Tarantino”, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set in 1960s Tinseltown and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a Hollywood movie star and Brad Pitt as his load carrying stunt-double. The movie, as to be expected with Tarantino films, features an all-star cast, but other than that, the trailer doesn’t give too much away. The film comes out July 26th.
Stranger Things season 3 is back this summer and the epic new trailer shows that this time things are going to be, well…epic! Expect the usual: 80s nostalgia, monsters, and super-powers. The third season launches on Netflix on July 4th.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold
Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer gets a Hollywood makeover with Dora and the Lost City of Gold. In this live-action remake, Dora swaps the dangers of the Jungle for the perils of high school. In cinemas August 2nd.
Lucy in the Sky
Natalie Portman stars as an astronaut who, since seeing the world from space, feel alienated and isolated from the banality of everyday life where “everything here looks so small”. Release date TBC.
The Last Black Man in San Francisco
The beautiful looking film, which was crowdfunded through Kickstarter, was a major success at the Sundance festival and by the trailer, we can see why. The film tells the tale of two friends struggling with gentrifying San Francisco. In cinemas June 14th.
