There are a lot of exciting films coming out this month — including Boyhood and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just this weekend, there are easily too many to see. And yet, it’s hard not to start making our list for what we’ll want to watch during the rest of the year. Down below we have eight of the latest trailers. You may have already seen some of them, but there's a decent change that you'll want to watch them again.
Before I Go To Sleep
Something terrible caused Christine Lucas to become an amnesiac, and she’s trying to figure out just what that was — even with some obvious hurdles in her way. Based on a novel of the same name, Before I Go To Sleep looks like a legitimately eerie thriller. It opens September 5th in the UK and September 12th in the US.
Unbroken tells the story of Olympic runner Louis Zamperini, who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II. It’s coming out on Christmas, and by all means the movie looks like it’s meant to be an uplifting, heart-warmer. Angelina Jolie directs, and the Coen Brothers are said to have worked on the script — so it may be worth keeping it mind.
Starred Up takes a scary look a the life of a young inmate after he’s transferred to an adult prison. The film received wide acclaim coming out of the festival circuit, and next month it’s finally heading to the US on the 29th.
David Fincher’s next film is about a man trying to find his missing wife — but it isn't so clear that he wasn't involved with her disappearance in the first place. Gone Girl is coming out in October, and if this trailer is any sign, it may well be Fincher's next great thriller.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
The next Hunger Games film arrives in November, and Lionsgate has been teasing them with some strange addresses from President Snow. This second address was released earlier this week.
The Zero Theorem
Terry Gilliam's latest film looks to be wonderfully grand and as strange as ever. The Zero Theorem will be released on demand on August 19th and in theaters exactly one month later.
Exodus: Gods and Kings
Ridley Scott’s next film is a biblical epic starring Christian Bale as Moses. What’s not to like? Exodus: Gods and Kings will be released in December, and it looks like it’ll easily live up to its status as an epic.
