10 of the best new movie trailers still to come this year

The world suffered a bit of a new movie drought over the past year, but that drought has since ended and there are still plenty of new releases yet to come this year.

After a year where very few new movies managed to get the cinematic premiere they were hoping for, Hollywood is making up for lost time with several new releases still to come this year. 

As excited as the directors, cast and crew must be though, we’re doubly so – rewatching our favourite flicks was fun for a while but we’re ready for some new material, so here are 10 movies we’re looking forward to seeing this year. 

King Richard

You know Venus and Serena Williams, but do you know their father Richard Williams? Well, you’re about to. Will Smith stars as King Richard himself, the undeterred father who was instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time. Showing the power of family, perseverance and wavering belief, the movie is a tribute to not only the women that changed the sport of tennis forever but the man who always believed that they could do it.  

In cinemas and streaming exclusively on HBO Max this November 19th. 

Old

The latest movie from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, Old is a chilling new thriller loosely based on a French-language novel by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. It tells the tale of a tropical holiday turned horrific nightmare, when a family visits a secluded beach only to find that it causes them to age rapidly… reducing their entire lives into one single day. Starring Gael García Bernal, Vicky Kirpes and Thomasin McKenzie amongst others.

In cinemas as of just this month.  

The French Dispatch 

A Wes Anderson special, The French Dispatch brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. Getting its premiere at Cannes earlier this year, much of the movie’s high profile cast were there to celebrate the occasion – though Saoirse Ronan was notably absent from this year’s festivities. 

Originally set to be released in August 2020, its premiere was delayed due to Covid but the movie is now expected to be released in cinemas this October. 

Dune 

Another one starring Timothée Chalamate, Dune sees him team up with Zendaya Coleman for the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name. Charting the “mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey” of Paul Atreides, he must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. 

In cinemas on October 22. 

Don’t Look Up 

Boasting a hugely famous cast, Don’t Look Up has just about every actress/actor you can think of in it. Leonardo DiCaprio? Tick. Jennifer Lawrence? Tick. Cate Blanchett, Ariana Grande, Chris Evans? Tick, tick, tick. Even Meryl Streep and Timothée Chalamet (who seems to never not be working?) feature. As per the Deadline description, “The film follows two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth.”

 

Landing on Netflix before the end of the year. 

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

While several Ghostbusters movies already exist, what sets this one apart is the fact that it has is Paul Rudd in it (along with Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace). Directed by Jason Reitman, the movie follows a single mother and her two children after they arrive in a new town and discover their connection to the first ghostbusters… so expect heaving helpings of nostalgia throughout.

In cinemas on November 11. 

Last Night In Soho 

Brought to us by the man behind the critically and commercially successful Baby Driver, Last Night in Soho is the work of Edgar Wright. A psychological thriller set in London’s Soho district, it alternates between two different points in time – present-day and the 1960s. Thomasin McKenzie takes on the role of Eloise, a young fashion designer who somehow finds herself with the ability to travel back in time where she meets her idol; a singer named Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy of The Queen’s Gambit fame). But the glamour is not all it appears to be…

Arriving in cinemas on October 22 – a popular date for movie releases this year, it seems. 

Eternals 

An upcoming superhero movie based on the Marvel Comics race of the same name, Eternals marks the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Directed and co-written by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao (Nomadland), the cast features such big names as Barry Keoghan, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Kit Harrington. According to the official synopsis, Eternals are “ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years”. An unexpected tragedy “forces them out of the shadows” though where they reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants.

Set for release on November 5. 

Queenpins

Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste are two struggling best friends who team up to create a $40 million scam. Bell a suburban housewife named Connie and Howell-Baptiste, a vlogger called JoJo with dreams of hitting the big leagues, the duo first bond over their love of extreme couponing. Sick of living paycheck to paycheck though, they realise that there may actually be money in their hobby and they soon join forces, setting up their own counterfeit coupon ring and selling them to fellow enthusiasts. Paul Walter Hauser, Vince Vaughn and Joel McHale also star.

In cinemas on September 10. 

The Last Duel  

The movie responsible for bringing Matt Damon to our humble shores back in 2020 when lockdown was but a new concept, Ireland features heavily in The Last Duel with shots of Dublin and Kilkenny making up much of the backdrop to the action. Ben Affleck, Adam Driver and Killing Eve actress Jodie Comer join Damon on the movie which tells the story of betrayal and vengeance in 14th century France. 

Opening in Irish cinemas on October 15.
