Super Bowl LI has come and gone, leaving in its wake a cinematic feast of new movie trailers to consume.
Some are follow-ups to trailers we’ve already seen (The Circle, Fate of the Furious). Others are brand new (Iron Fist, The Beguiled). And yes, some of them are technically television trailers, not movie trailers, but let’s not get pedantic here.
Now join us in seeing what the coming months have in store and giving a warm welcome back to Bill Nye. The world missed ya, bud.
Mae (Emma Watson) lands a job at the world’s largest and most powerful tech company, The Circle. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by company founder Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks) to live her life with complete transparency. But no one is really safe when everyone is watching.
An injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) finds refuge at Confederate girls’ boarding school during the Civil War. He cons his way into each of the lonely women’s hearts, and his presence soon causes the women to turn on each other and him. Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, Oona Laurence, and Angourie Rice co-star.
Bill Nye Saves the World
Your childhood’s favourite nerd (plus a cast of celebrity guests) is back to explore science and its impact on politics, society, and pop culture.

Things look shockingly normal at the start of Fate Of The Furious (aka Fast and Furious 8). Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon, Brian and Mia have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated.

Dear White People
It’s only 34 seconds long, but this little teaser caused a big stir this week. Netflix found itself steeped in online controversy after dropping the first look at the small screen adaptation of Dear White People. Some called it anti-white and threatened to end their Netflix subscriptions; others came its defence, saying that the backlash is exactly the reason why a show like this is needed.
