The first week of 2017 is in the books, and you’ve probably already given up on your New Year’s resolutions by now. Unless your New Year’s resolution is to see more movies, in which case we’ve got just what you need.
These four new trailers from the past week will help you make that particular New Year’s resolution a reality. And watching them is way easier than working out at the gym.
J.K. Simmons stars in this comedy as a BAMF father who is forced to team up with his daughter’s dimwitted ex-boyfriend (Emile Hirsch) to find his baby girl. It’s basically Taken meets The Hangover, and it hits theaters on St. Patrick’s Day.
The first Cars 3 teaser hinted at a darker tone and also traumatized children across the world by showing Lightning McQueen getting into a brutal crash. Now the second teaser introduces two new characters- Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez- while revealing nothing about the newest Pixar movie’s plot.
Cars 3 races into theaters on June 16th.
Cult of Chucky
The Child’s Play franchise movie churns on with its sixth sequel to the 1988 original, and frankly they could keep making these movies forever because Chucky is never going to cease being absolutely terrifying. In the meta words of Chucky in this trailer, “A true classic never goes out of style.”
This teaser was the first announcement of Cult of Chucky, and filming will begin soon. It’s unclear as of now when exactly it will make its way to theaters.
I’m not a horror film guy and yet somehow two of the handful of horror flicks I’ve ever seen include both Child’s Play and The Ring. I saw both in middle school, and had petrifying nightmares afterward that made me realize I should just stick to comedies and dramas.
Coincidentally, in the same week we get The Cult of Chucky, teaser we also get one for Rings. This flick is set 14 years after the blockbuster original, and once again the plot is about a videotape that unleashes a demon to kill a viewer within seven days of watching it.
This one’s comes out soon. On February 3rd, to be exact. Hopefully if you see it the day it opens you’ll live past February 10th.
