4 (Great) Trailers from the Past Week

To put it simple, this week was trailer insanity. While we were able to cover the brand new trailers for WarcraftThe Magnificent SevenJason Bourne, and Independence Day: Resurgence, at least four other noteworthy trailers were released that deserve to be talked about. So before we all dissect the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer that was announced for tomorrow, let’s take a look at this past week in trailers with a few that may have been a bit overshadowed.

They include: the biopic based The Founder, which stories the origin of McDonald’s founder, Ray Croc (played by Michael Keaton); the mystery thriller The Girl on the Train, which is based on the novel of the same name and stars Emily Blunt; Bryan Cranston’s The Infiltrator, which is based on a true story involving Pablo Escobar; and Woody Allen’s romantic dramedy Café Society, which is set in 1930s Hollywood.
