Halloween is months away, but already the monster movies are out in force.
Colossal takes a comedic approach to a classic critter. Okja weaves a modern fairytale about a creature that’s being hunted by an evil corporation. 47 Meters Down is the latest take on a familiar aquatic trope. And in Alien: Covenant, a terrifying discovery awaits on an uncharted planet.
Along with Covenant, this week’s movie trailers reveal looks at two more of the most anticipated movies of 2017. Check out what Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle and Justice League, plus more, have in store below.
Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul in South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realisation that she is somehow connected to his far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
From visionary director Bong Joon-ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalisation, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.
Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle
In case you missed it earlier in the week, here’s the trailer for the Kingsman sequel again.

In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.
