Christmas came early for movie-lovers this week when a whole batch of mouth-watering new trailers were gifted to us. I’ve been posting new trailers every week for the past several months, and this is easily the most exciting collection of trailers I’ve written about yet.
Let’s dig in.
Baywatch is back, but it’s not quite what you’d expect. The movie version of the iconic series is a 21 Jump Street-like comedy starring The Rock and Zach Efron. Unfortunately, a lot of the laugh-lines in the trailer fell flat for me. Don’t think I’m going to see this one, but it’ll probably be entertaining for fans of the original show.
Baywatch swims into theaters on May 26, 2017.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
The Guardians are back in this sequel to what was probably the funniest Marvel movie ever made. It looks like the second one should follow in the footsteps of its predecessor by delivering a great mix of adventure and laughs. You can Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters on Cinco de Mayo.
As long as people keep seeing them, they’ll keep making new SpiderMan movies. But what’s so exciting about this upcoming flick starring Tom Holland is that it’s the first SpiderMan movie to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The trailer even includes an appearance from Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Should be awesome.
You can check out Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7th, 2017.
Transformers: The Lost Knight
Transformers is another franchise that seemingly could pump out movies forever. Apparently Mark Wahlberg replaced Shia LaBeouf in the last movie and is reprising his role in this one, but you’re paying your money to badass robots anyway so who cares who the actors are? Director Michael Bay was given an absurd $260 million dollar budget to play with so you can bet there will be an explosion or two.
Transformers: The Lost Knight hits theaters on June 23, 2017.
War for the Planet of the Apes
The recent Planet of the Apes have all been incredible, and Caesar is back in The War to lead the primates in their crusade against humanity. This looks super intense, and I personally can’t wait to see it after it comes out on July 14th.
