Trailers Week 49: 14/06/15

Bridge of Spies
Steven Spielberg's first movie in three years since Lincoln. This Cold War thriller is about an incident that actually occurred involving both Soviet and American spies. It's also written by the Coen Brothers, so expect big things. This trailer truly gets me excited. Starring Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan and Alan Alda.

The Martian
Based on Andy Weir's best selling novel about an astronaut abandoned on Mars after his mission is forced to abort. Ridley Scott directs this all star cast including Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan and Mackenzie Davis.

Coming Home
The trailer for acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou's latest film (although it came out in China last year, it's only being released in the West now) has already made me tear up and cry. It recounts the return of a man from a three year stint in prison, only to find that his wife has Alzheimers and doesn't recognise him, rejecting him from her life. It looks like a heartbreaking film and I can't wait to review it. Starring Gong Li and Chen Daoming.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
The final part of the final chapter in which the resistance finally takes down the Capital led by the evil President Snow. Everyone returns from the last including Gwendoline Christie this time.

The Program
I think I'm one of the only people in the world who still likes Lance Armstrong. I don't deny that he took drugs and was a cheat, but it doesn't mean he's an evil person. This chilling movie based on journalist David Walsh's revealing investigative book might change all that. Starring Ben Foster, Chris O'Dowd, Lee Pace, Jesse Plemons and Dustin Hoffman.

This cute and charming trailer for the new Disney animation doesn't tell us anything about the movie's plot but Jason Bateman does introduce us to the world of the movie.

Rock the Kasbah
Bill Murray stars as a rock touring manager who gets abandoned in Afghanistan. Looks like a lot of fun. Also starring Kate Hudson, Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride and Scott Caan.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Guy Ritchie's comedic adaptation of the 60s TV looks funny as all hell. I'm just a little confused by the casting choices. An Englishman (Henry Cavill) is playing an American, an American (Armie Hammer) is playing a Russian, a Swede (Alicia Vikander) is playing an Englishwoman and the same with an Australian (Elizabeth Debicki). At least Hugh Grant is playing his own.
