The weekend's best trailers - 7 August 2017By Staff Writer 7 August 2017 | Categories: News
The past weekend is done and dusted, and while many of us were more focused on the Super Rugby final involving the Lions (damn!), the rest of the world got new trailers to enjoy. In case you missed them, we've rounded up some of the best, which include a short promo for Ant-Man & The Wasp beginning production, as well as season three of Narcos, along with new horror flick Keep Watching.
Ant-Man & The Wasp
There isn't a lot to go on here, with Ant-Man & The Wasp only just beginning shooting. What we can tell though, is that the film will try to conjure up the same light heartedness and humour as the first film, mixing it with plenty of action and CGI-aided shrinking. Along with Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, we'll get to see Evangeline Lilly's (Lost) Hope van Dyne don her suit as The Wasp.
Release date: July 2018 (United States)
Best bit: Dramatic zoom to insect-sized chairs.
We only have a trailer to go on Keep Watching, with this latest horror flick falling under the same category as the usual 'found footage' genre of films that have come out in recent years. As such, it may not seem wholly original, but could prove capable of a few anxious moments.
Release date: 4 August (United States)
Best bit: Panning out to the CCTV camera setup.
It seems like nuns are getting far more attention in movies recently, but don't expect Novitiate to have a similar vibe to The Little Hours. Instead, this film has more of an Oscar feel to it, particularly Melissa Leo (The Fighter), who plays the Reverend Mother at a convent. Acting opposite her is Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers) as a young woman who joins the convent as a sister-in-training and soon comes to realise that things are not as they first seemed. Expect powerful performances from Novitiate.
Release date: 20 January 2017 (United States)
Best bit: Leo taking a question at 0:33.
Narcos (Season Three)
The popular Netflix series is shifting focus in its third season. With Pablo Escobar now gone, attention has turned to the Cali Cartel operating out of Columbia and its drug dealings. Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) retains his role as agent Peña for this series, and is now targeting four men within the Cali Cartel organisation in a bid to stop their growing influence. If the trailer is anything to go by, this upcoming season will be even more gritty, dark and violent than the last.
Release date: 1 September 2017
Best bit: Peña and his team preparing for war at 1:30.
The trailer for Mindhunter may have been released late last week, but it's still worthy of a mention. Another in a slew of Netflix original series, this one tackles the mind of serial killers through the eyes of two FBI agents. In particular, the series tries to see how profiling techniques were developed by the FBI in order to better track down serial killers. There's certainly a heavy Silence of the Lambs feel going on here, so it should be interesting to see if Mindhunter can deliver.
Release date: 13 October 2017
Best bit: A serial killer trying to rationalise his actions at the beginning.
