Man was it a week for trailers! The week kicked off (pun intended) with some fantastic Super Bowl 50 spots, and continued with new trailers for such movies as The Jungle Book, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and The Huntsman: Winter’s War, but that isn’t even close to the only trailers we got. On top of those, eight other trailers were released throughout the week that deserve of a view or two from you.
When I usually do this weeky post, it only includes four trailers, because that’s always about the number of trailers released. But for some reason, this week was loaded with new trailers. Because the bigger movies I mentioned above always get the spotlight, and rightfully so, these “smaller” movies often get lost in the shuffle. And just as I usually do with this segment, I bring to you the (this time) eight the trailers from the past week.

His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky); he’s a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley.) He may be on your side, but you aren’t sure.
