We’re back with another Friday wave of some of the week’s biggest trailers (that I didn’t already cover in other posts, of course), and we’ve got a nice mix this time out. The week was dominated by four different “Based on a True Story” drama trailers, but there’s also a moving story of survival, a new Seth Rogen comedy, Hulu’s latest series, and one of the most unnerving horror trailers I’ve seen in a while. Check ‘em all out below.
THE NIGHT BEFORE
Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie are throwing the biggest, craziest drug-fueled Christmas party ever.
13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI
Michael Bay has decided to once again make a movie that’s not about robots punching each other, and this team he’s focusing on the true story of a security team trying to fend off the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. Will it work? Who knows, but at least we’ll get to obsess over John Krasinski’s warbeard.
I’ve always thought of Antonio Banderas as a somewhat underappreciated movie star, so it’s nice to see him land a meaty leading role like this, in the harrowing true story of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped in a mountain for more than two months in 2010.
Birdman couldn’t get Michael Keaton an Oscar, but he’s getting another shot thanks to this film, which tells the true story of the Boston Globe reporting team that broke the Massachusetts Catholic church sex abuse scandal. If it’s done right, it could be another All the President’s Men.
We’ve already seen plenty of Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, but the latest trailer gives us our best sense of the whole film yet. This really could be the redemption of Depp.
Comedians and friends Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner get their own series from Hulu this summer, and as the title suggests, it’s about two people who are annoyed by everyone but each other. The concept seems like the perfect fit for their respective comedic styles, and I’m thrilled that Klausner, host of the terrific How Was Your Week podcast and creator of the series, is finally getting this spotlight.
Two boys greet their mother when she comes home after cosmetic surgery, and slowly begin to realize that the person they’re living with may not really be their mother. Every single shot in this trailer is more unnerving than the last. This looks terrifying.
After a terrific performance in Short Term 12 in 2013, Brie Larson is getting another chance to break out into major stardom with this drama, about a woman and her son hoping to break out of a tiny shed that’s the only world they’ve known for years.
