Alien: Covenant Trailer and Clips

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise.  The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world.  When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

This movie definitely roars. Yikes!

Here is a nice long clip called The Last Super. I am surprised to see James Franco. He is the captain, too. There are some other familiar faces as well. Check it out.

How to Be a Latin Lover Trailer

Directed by Ken Marino, Eugenio Derbez stars in the cross-culture movie that has more of a Latin flare than a true American comedy. Eugenio plays a very handsome and very young Maximo who has a dream to be rich without ever having to work a day in his life.

Having made a career of seducing rich older women, he marries a wealthy woman more than twice his age. 25 years later, spoiled and bored from waking up next to his now 80-year-old wife. He gets the surprise of his life when she ends up dumping him for a younger car salesman.

Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he must move in with his estranged sister, Sara, played by Salma Hayek, and her nerdy but adorable son, Hugo in their small apartment. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo uses his nephew’s crush on a classmate to get to his new target-her grandmother, Celeste, a widowed billionaire.

As Maximo tries to rekindle his powers as a Latin lover, he finds himself bonding with his nephew Hugo, and he begins to learn that being a Latin lover means that loving money isn’t as important as the love of your family.

Here is another trailer. The boy is hilarious.

A Cure for Wellness Trailer

Directed by Gore Verbinski, A Cure for Wellness follows an ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure. The trailer’s foreboding undertones comes the new psychological thriller.

Super Bowl Ad, sure is an interesting movie.

Everybody Loves Somebody Trailer

Written and directed by Catalina Aguilar Mastretta, Everybody Loves Somebody follows the young and beautiful Clara Barron, played by Karla Souza, seems to have everything- a great job as an OB-GYN. She even has a great house in LA and a big fun-loving Mexican family.

But, the one thing Clara doesn’t have figured out is her love life. Pressured by a family wedding in Mexico, Clara asks a co-worker to pose as her boyfriend for the weekend festivities – only to be caught by surprise when her ex- boyfriend (and family favorite) suddenly shows up after disappearing from her life completely.

Torn, Clara must decide between going back to the past or open her heart to new and unexpected possibilities. In an adventure, full of laughter, she learns that sometimes it takes the whole crazy family to help you find crazy love.

 

Snatched Trailer

I know this is supposed to be funny, but being kidnapped in a foreign country doesn’t seem like a funny situation.

It all starts after her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton, played by Amy Schumer, persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda, played by Goldie Hawn, to travel with her to paradise.

Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.

Kidnapping occurs in our cities, not just other countries.  It is really hard for me to get excited about this movie even though Goldie Hawn is starring in the comedy.

 

The Bye Bye Man Trailer

People commit unthinkable acts every day. Time and again, we grapple to understand what drives a person to do such terrible things. But what if all of the questions we’re asking are wrong? What if the cause of all evil is not a matter of what…but who?

The Bye Bye Man seems to be a chilling horror-thriller that exposes the evil behind the most unspeakable acts committed by man. When three college friends stumble upon the horrific origins of the Bye Bye Man, they discover that there is only one way to avoid his curse: don’t think it, don’t say it. But once the Bye Bye Man gets inside your head, he takes control. Is there a way to survive his possession?

The Boss Baby Trailer

Directed by Tom McGrath, The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim.

He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy with a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, The Boss Baby looks really funny and should appeal to the whole family.

Here is a clip from the movie. Looking funny.

The Fate of the Furious Trailer

Directed by F. Gary Gray, The Fate of the Furious, begins where Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman, played by Charlize Theron, seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

This is quite a cast with Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren.

Another awesome trailer that I like.

Super Bowl Ad is a whole minute.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailers and Interview Clips

Directed by Jon Watts, I am not sure how to take the overall slant of the next Spider-man movie. It’s a little too goofy for me and seems nothing like the comic strips I used to read in the daily paper when I was a kid.

The movie has a great cast, so I am hoping for a better trailer to be released soon. One that shows more of the story and a good reason to go to the theater and see another Spider-man remake.

Check out the interviews with the director and cast just after the two trailers.
