New trailers: The Hunger Games, The Good Dinosaur, Spectre, and more

All the shows and movies you should be looking out for


Did you watch The Martian last week? Are you planning to see Steve Jobs this week? You didn't? You haven't? Okay, because now you're seriously far behind, and things are about to get crazy. I just don't know how you could be so sloppy like that in the run-up to Oscar season. Movies are coming now. They're coming fast. And they're not gonna stop. You have to start watching keep watching never stop watching and also there are big tentpoles like The Hunger Games and Spectre mixed in with all of the emotional dramas like Trumbo and probably you're going to want to see a lot of them. So yeah. Pick a few and start watching. Mockingjay seems like a good start. You were gonna see that one no matter what, right?

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

This is apparently the final trailer for the final installment of The Hunger Games, which means the actual end of the series is now very, very close. This one is packed with the kind of nonstop action that you'd expect from the final part of both a trilogy and a two-party movie, so prepare yourself for a lot of fast cuts and some intense music. It's out November 20th.

The Good Dinosaur

Pixar's next movie is out in November, so it's time to show what it's really like. This new trailer finally dives into the film's plot and lets the dinosaurs do some talking. It looks... interesting. I can't say I'm immediately convinced by the talking dinosaur thing the way other Pixar movies have hit me right off the bat, but the human-dog thing is pretty cute. It opens November 25th.


Remember the early Spectre trailers that were all about mood and intrigue? Well forget about that. The movie is almost out, so now it's time for shots of sick landscapes and explosions. A helicopter might even do a barrel roll at one point. It's out November 6th.


Hey, Sherlock is coming back! A one-off special is coming this Christmas followed by a fourth season... eventually. This is our first look at the former, and — chances are — it'll only make Sherlock fans even more impatient for the show's impending return.


Hold on. Is Vinyl just the rock 'n' roll version of Empire? Because that's kind of amazing. And also, this looks like it's going to be a ton of fun. Vinyl is a new HBO series from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter, who was behind Boardwalk Empire. It's about ’70s rock, and that's basically all you need to know. The series starts in January.


This is one of those trailers that breezes through 90 percent of a movie, but it's also a situation where I don't really mind it. Trumbo is about Spartacus screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and how he wound up on the Hollywood blacklist during the Communist scare. It seems like an interesting story, but it also seems like a really great excuse to watch Bryan Cranston act. Helen Mirren, John Goodman, Elle Fanning, and Louis C.K. all show up, too. It should be cool. It's supposed to arrive in the US on November 6th.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

While there have been numerous moody trailers for Netflix's next Marvel series lately (read: four in the last week), this is the first to tease what Jessica Jones will actually be about — by way of a creepy voiceover from David Tennant, who will likely be Jones' main antagonist.


If you've ever seen a Gamera film before, chances are it part of a Mystery Science Theater 3000 collection. The first Gamera was released in 1965 to capitalize on Godzilla's popularity, but there's only so much box-office terror you can cause with a giant turtle. Now that Gareth Edward's Godzilla reboot has revitalized the monster movie genre, it seems only natural that Gamera should return as well. The new trailer debuted at New York Comic Con as part of the franchise's 50th anniversary panel. No word on a release date.
