Coming Soon: All the New Trailers You Need to Watch This Week

A great trailer does two things: makes you want to run to the cinemas to see the film in question, and makes you hit replay on the preview itself the moment it's finished. Or, thanks to the rise of TV trailers, it inspires your next date with your couch. You'll want to get as comfy as possible to binge-watch the next season of your favourite show, after all.

2019 is almost over, but more trailers keep popping up for both big- and small-screen highlights due this year and next. And this fortnight is no different, with everything from True Detective to The Secret Life of Pets to How to Train Your Dragon dropping trailers for their next instalments — and the new Jungle Book-inspired film, the Andy Serkis-directed Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, too.

That said, it's a great time for previews of films that aren't based on existing series or properties, although Norwegian disaster flick The Quake — the sequel to 2015 epic The Wave — still falls into that category. Elsewhere, however, High Life sends Robert Pattinson into space, Cam finds the horror in webcams, Blue My Mind steps into a dramatic teenage transformation and dystopian sci-fi effort Captive State battles with aliens.

Animated efforts Missing Link and Spies in Disguise explore humanity's past and our penchant for espionage, respectively, while festival hit Capernaum follows a boy's tough fight for freedom — and his tough life on the streets that inspires it.

On the small screen, DogsDogs of Berlin (yes, they're diferent shows) and Kingdom are all headed to Netflix. The first is a docuseries about gorgeous canines from around the world, the second is a gritty cop show set in the German city that gives the show its name, and the third unleashes zombies in medieval Korea.

Check out this week's full slate below — and prepare some busy viewing ahead.
