Anticipation for Rogue One continues to grow. And this week, with less than a month until it hits theaters, we were graced with the final trailer for the upcoming Star Wars flick. But while the new Rogue One trailer understandably has a lot of people excited, there was no shortage of other dope trailers that also dropped this week. Let’s take a look.
While most Pixar movies appeal to audiences of all ages, Cars and Cars 2 was targeted almost exclusively to to children. But from the looks of this short teaser, Cars 3 will have a much darker tone than its two predecessors. Hopefully this shift will make Cars 3 an upgrade over the first sequel, which has only a 39% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, by far the lowest of any Pixar movie. The Lightning McQueen comeback story doesn’t arrive in theaters until June 16, 2017 so we’ll be on the lookout for any additional trailers until then.
Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors to ever do it, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been in plenty of crap comedies since the turn of the century. And while there’s certainly a chance The Comedian is another on that list, just based on the trailer it looks like a worthwhile romantic comedy. De Niro stars as a loose cannon comic legend, and the solid cast also includes Leslie Mann and Danny DeVito. The Comedian will have its wide release in theaters on January 13, 2017.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Here’s the final trailer for Rogue One, entitled ‘Trust’, which could have the highest-grossing opening weekend of 2016 when it hits theaters on December 16th. There’s plenty in this new trailer for Star Wars faithful to chew on.
Silence is far different from the typical Martin Scorsese-directed picture, and frankly I’m not sure what to make it. In this film Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield are two Christian missionaries who journey to Japan to find their lost mentor, played by Liam Neeson. Despite my bewilderment, Scorsese has obviously earned the benefit of the doubt over his illustrious career. Silence is slated for a December 23, 2016 release.
