If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend, you’ve got plenty of options. Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi jaunt Edge of Tomorrow is hitting theaters, and if time travel and aliens aren’t your thing, there’s the YA tear-jerker The Fault in Our Stars, starring Divergent’s Shailene Woodley. There’s even a brand new season of Orange Is the New Black on Netflix to tuck into if you’re in a binge watching kind of mood.
Of course, that's just scratching the service of all the movies and shows that will be coming in the months ahead — so let’s take a look at some of the latest trailers to make the rounds.
Made in America
Ron Howard’s documentary about Jay Z’s 2012 Made in America music festival debuted last year on Showtime, but now it’s getting ready to come to DVD and on-demand services. Featuring appearances from Janelle Monáe, Kanye West, Skrillex, and more, the film will be available on July 22nd — just in time to get audiences primed for this year’s festival, which will be taking place in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles in August.
The latest trailer for director Philip Noyce’s adaptation of this dystopian novel adds a little stylistic flair to go along with the Oscar-winning acting talent. In a seemingly-perfect — if a bit bland — future utopia, Brenton Thwaites (The Signal) is under the tutelage of Jeff Bridges, known as The Giver. The older mentor pulls back the curtain to reveal that the world is more dynamic and richer than Thwaites has ever seen before, and he soon becomes a threat to society that must be stopped.
There’s not a lot to say about this one. It’s The Rock. It’s directed by the man behind the Rush Hour trilogy. There’s a lion hat and lots of fights.
Is it time for a new episode of Game of Thrones yet?
The Green Inferno
Anytime horror maestro Eli Roth makes a movie, there’s a few things you can count on. A lot of people will hate it because of his unflinching approach to violence. It will feature striking, sometimes beautiful imagery. And really, really horrible things will happen, leaving you rattled and wondering why you watched the movie in the first place. For genre fans, that’s a perfect combination, and The Green Inferno looks to continue the tradition.
