It's been a big week for movie trailers. We've seen new clips for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Jupiter Ascending — and there’s still more to watch. Let’s take a look at some of the latest trailers to make the rounds.
'Into the Storm'
We’ve seen the found footage format used for horror movies and sci-fi movies, and now it’s time for disaster movies. Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead) and an ensemble cast face off against some of the nastiest weather conditions this side of Twister. Do yourself a favor: do not watch this trailer before getting on an airplane.
If you’ve been waiting for the director of Rush Hour 3 to team up with The Rock for a reboot of Hercules… well, this is your lucky day. In this teaser trailer Dwayne Johnson has a really weird beard, wears a lion head for a hat, and swings his club at giant animals. Then to top it all off, he screams his name really loud.
'Phantasm V: Ravager'
Don Coscarelli kicked off his cult horror franchise 35 years ago, and while there hasn’t been an entry since 1998 that’s about to change. Animation veteran David Hartman takes over directing duties this time around, having previously worked with Coscarelli on Bubba Ho-Tep. Plot details are thin, but longtime fans can rest easy: Angus Scrimm will be back as the horrific Tall Man.
'Romancing the Stone'
This trailer to Robert Zemeckis’ 1984 action comedy may not technically be new, but we haven't seen it in quite some time. The clip harkens back to a simpler time, when actors like Danny DeVito would shoot special sequences full of exposition just for a movie trailer — and then break the fourth wall for no reason whatsoever. Who’s this Ira person he’s shouting at? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
