Whether or not you were free to check out the all the new trailers that dropped last weekend, we’ve got you covered—there were more than enough to get audiences hyped for what’s coming to theatres. Check them out.
The hype is now sky-high for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Before Disney and LucasFilms released the trailer during a commercial break on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, a new poster for the film with the late Carrie Fisher front and center was released. Ticket sales for the movie have already opened, with fans crashing the Fandango website trying to purchase one.

Director Rian Johnson added to the excitement yesterday when he confirmed on Twitter, after months of fan speculation, that ‘The Last Jedi’ definitely refers to Luke Skywalker. He simply replied “it’s Luke” to a Vanity Fair article theorizing the title’s hidden meaning. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 15.
Superhero fans got a treat this weekend when DC released the final trailer to the new Justice League movie at New York Comic Con. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film is a follow-up to last year’s Batman v Superman: The Dawn Of Justice.
The film’s upcoming release comes hot off the heels of DC’s success with Wonder Woman, which met rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Gal Gadot will also make an appearance in the new Justice League film, which will be released next month on November 16.
Keanu Reeves also released the trailer to his new film Replicas this weekend at New York Comic Con. The sci-fi thriller centres on a neurologist who brings his family back to life by cloning bodies after they die in a car accident.
Filmed last year in Puerto Rico, the cast along with New York Comic Con are raising funds for relief efforts after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island last month.
The film is expected be released sometime next year.
Fast and Furious spin-off
Just after the announcement that the release of Fast and Furious 9 would be delayed to spring 2020, Dwayne Johnson dropped the teaser of his spin-off movie with Jason Statham on Instagram.
Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz. Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business. Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply JULY 2019
In his post, Johnson wrote, “I want to use my spin off platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans.”
This comes as a response to criticism from his Fast and Furious costar Tyrese Gibson, who slammed Johnson for delaying Fast and Furious 9 for this spin-off movie, which is expected to be released summer 2019.
