New trailers: Point Break, Black Mass, The Daily Show, and more
All the shows and movies you should be looking out for11
We've done it everyone. We've gone a week without a superhero trailer. At least, so long as you aren't counting superhuman athletes, sleeper secret agents, and The Rock in general. Either way, there's a good mixture of trailers out this week, including some huge films — like Point Break — and some offbeat small ones with a lot of interesting ideas in them. You can check out this week's 10 best below.
The remake of Point Break looks completely ridiculous in both awful and amazing ways. There's crime, there's action, there's extreme sports, and there's an all new Johnny Utah. It'll be in theaters on Christmas.
Black Mass is a reminder of how good it is to see Johnny Depp settle into a serious role. Here he plays the infamous mobster Whitey Bulger with a mixture of menace and charisma, all amid gorgeously shot, retro sets. It'll be out September 18th.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
Jerry Seinfeld's wonderful web series is coming back for a sixth season, and a trailer out this week teases some of its big guests. That includes Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Carrey, Steve Harvey, Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, and new Daily Show host Trevor Noah. It begins June 3rd.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
No one can replace Jon Stewart, but it at least looks like Trevor Noah plans on having a good time once he takes over. Comedy Central debuted a first teaser for Noah's takeover this week, announcing a premiere date of September 28th.
Ballers is a new HBO show about The Rock giving business advice to his trusted colleagues. JK, it's mostly about partying and football and Miami. It starts June 21st.
Sometimes, the best action moves are the most ridiculous, and American Ultra is definitely out there. It has Jesse Eisenberg starring as a stoner / secret agent and Kristen Stewart starring as probably just a stoner. It's crazy over the top and seems like a lot of fun. It'll be out August 21st.
The End of the Tour
Reviews have been glowing so far for The End of the Tour, a film about an interview / road trip taken by David Foster Wallace and journalist David Lipsky. That makes the movie basically about one long conversation, and it certainly seems like a fascinating one. It'll be out July 31st.
Felt is supposed to be a powerful look at rape culture and what it's like to live as a woman. The film focuses on an artist, and this trailer starts to show how her art begins to transform her and her world. It's in theaters June 26th.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl
The Diary of a Teenage Girl is the latest quirky, coming-of-age film to debut a trailer after winning over critics at Sundance. The film mixes in animation in a pretty wonderful way, and it's clearly trying to have a lot of fun while exploring a serious side of growing up. It'll be out August 7th.
Tobey Maguire plays Bobby Fischer in this biopic of one of the best chess player to ever live. Fischer's story is an interesting one, to say the least, and not simply because of his chess playing. Later in life, Fischer was well known for his anti-Semitic remarks and statements supporting the attacks on September 11th. This film clearly starts to dive into that side of him, and it'll be interesting to see how it paints such a polarizing figure.
