It was quite slow for new trailers in a week that dedicated to everything Captain America: Civil War. Marvel took over each day with new posters or footage, maybe having everyone else second guess releasing their own new trailers. Either way, I’ve been able to scrap together four new trailers from the past week just as I do each week. They include Tom Hanks’ A Hologram for the King, Popstar: Never Stop Popping from Lonely Island, a second trailer for Kubo and the Two Strings and yes, a trailer for another Tyler Perry movie, Boo! A Madea Halloween.
A Hologram for the King
Release date: April 22nd.
After failing in America, a struggling businessman heads to a rising Saudi Arabian city for a last ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter’s college tuition, and do something memorable.
Popstar: Never Stop Popping
Release date: June 3rd.
The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Andy Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
Kubo and the Two Strings
Release date: August 19th.
Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Kamekichi (Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.
Boo! A Madea Halloween
Release date: October 21st.
In Boo! A Madea Halloween, Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a hilarious, haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.
