We’re still combing the internet for every frame of Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage we can get our hands on, but it’s definitely not the only trailer game in town. This week brought us clips for Melissa McCarthy’s next comedy, an absolutely bonkers mythololigcal thriller, a Dwayne Johnson/Kevin Hart team-up and more.
Check out five of the week’s best trailers below.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart teamed up for an action comedy in which Johnson is a badass CIA Agent and Hart is…not. Both stars are about as hot as they could possibly be right now, and they’ve already sold us on the movie thanks to some hilarious on-set shenanigans. So, does the trailer make us want to see it? I don’t know about you, but the movie could be absolutely terrible and I’d still be delighted by these two.
Melissa McCarthy is a disgraced billionaire. Kristen Bell is her tireless and thankless employee. I’ve always thought one of McCarthy’s best comedic modes was her ability to completely disappear into an aggressively angry character, and it looks like she’s taking that further than ever here. I can’t wait.
GODS OF EGYPT
North Africa has never looked whiter than this movie, in which Gerard Bulter and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau square off as two gods vying for control of Egypt and a magic eye (no, really). The plot really doesn’t matter, though, because if you see this movie at all, it’ll be because it just looks absolutely nuts.
NOW YOU SEE ME 2
Now You See Me, a film about magicians who band together to pull a series of impressive heists, was one of the more pleasant movie surprises of 2013, and it did well enough that we’re getting a sequel. This time around, our magical friends (sans Isla Fisher, who’s been replaced by Lizzy Caplan) are pulling off an even more spectacular plan with even more spectacular illusions, and Harry Potter himself (Daniel Radcliffe) is along for the ride. It looks fun, but I have no idea why no one thought to call this movie “Now You See Me Too."
THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR
Chris Hemsworth returns, without Kristen Stewart, for this spinoff of Snow White and the Huntsman in which the titular hero teams up with another warrior (Jessica Chastain) to battle a pair of evil queens (Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt). Honestly, this trailer looks incomprehensible to me, but put Jessica Chastain in an awesome outfit. Film her stabbing and shooting a bunch of dudes, and I am there.
