This week's trailers are wonderfully different, ranging from comedy documentaries, to tense dramas, to coming-of-age stories, to actual comedies. You may not love all of them, but there's definitely some great stuff in the mix. You can see 11 of this week's best below.
Our first real look at Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs is a good one. This trailer is quick, tense, and filled with drama. It shows Jobs as a legend and a fraud, a hero and a scumbag. And there's all of the Sorkin quips you could ask for. It's out October 9th.
Michael B. Jordan looks amazing here. In fact, the entire cast looks amazing. If you weren't feeling the idea of a Rocky spinoff, don't worry. Just click play, and see how great this looks. Creed seems to be building out a compelling new character to carry on the Rocky franchise, so much so that Rocky himself feels more like a bonus than the hook. It'll be out November 25th.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp
With a cast like this, the long-hoped-for Wet Hot American Summer prequel pretty much has to be funny. And our first real look at it — the trailer above — makes it pretty clear that it is. Take a couple minutes and catch up with some of the best comedians around. The eight-episode series arrives on Netflix July 31st.
Sometimes Netflix has wildly popular or groundbreaking shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. And sometimes it has BoJack Horseman. The eccentric animated comedy is coming back for a second season, and a full trailer for it came out this week. The full thing premieres on Netflix July 17th.
Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'
I don't know enough about Dragon Ball Z to give this its proper due, so here's Kwame Opam on Resurrection 'F': In the follow-up to last year’s Dragon Ball Z movie, Resurrection 'F' features the return of beloved villain Frieza. After being wished back with the Dragon Balls, Frieza comes to Earth to challenge — who else? — Goku to a duel he probably can’t win. Watch out for lots of transformations that are probably more ridiculous than Super Saiyan 3 in a movie no one really asked for. Oh well.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl
The Diary of a Teenage Girl clearly fits the definition of "quirky indie film," but it also looks like it puts those quirks to very good use. It's stylish, it's funny, and it seems to be a smart take on a teenage girl's coming of age. It'll be out starting August 7th.
Breathe received some wonderful reviews out of Cannes last year, and now it's finally headed to the US. The film deals with a friendship between two girls, one turning passionate and the other becoming something of a bully. It'll be out on September 11th.
Ten Thousand Saints
Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer, punk rock, and teens? Sure, I'll bite. The film is about drug issues, growing up, and the straight-edge scene in 1980s New York. It's a coming of age film, but certainly one a bit different from, say, Paper Towns. It'll be out August 14th.
Tom at the Farm
I don't entirely know what's going on here, but it all seems pretty tense. Tom at the Farm is a thriller about a guy who heads to his boyfriend's funeral only to find that the family knows nothing of him. From there, some crazy psychological thriller stuff goes down. It'll be out August 14th.
I Am Chris Farley
Some of the greatest comedians around get on camera to talk about another all-time great: Chris Farley. That should make I Am Chris Farley a compelling look back at the comedian's life and career. It'll be out in theaters and on-demand August 11th.
Tig's first trailer makes it out to be a powerful look at comedian Tig Notaro's battle with cancer. It's also pretty hilarious, which should be no surprise if you're familiar with Notaro. The documentary goes on Netflix July 17th.
