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.
2018 keeps ticking on, more trailers keep popping up, and more new films and television shows keep vying for a spot on your must-see list. This week, it's all about nostalgia. The Grinch is back in animated form (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), Winnie the Pooh is wandering around the live-action, Paddington-style Christopher Robin and Mary Poppins Returns promises exactly what it sounds like, with Emily Blunt in the lead role.
Also keeping with the familiar, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 brings the computer game-focused hit from a few years back into the online age, Fahrenheit 451 brings the literary classic in line with today's times — with Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan — and Lost in Space also gets an update courtesy of the forthcoming Netflix series. The streaming platform also has also dropped a trailer for the new season of Santa Clarita Diet, should you need some more zombie comedy in your life.
And then there's Best F(r)iends. It instantly feels like something you've seen before, probably because you've seen its main stars' claim to fame many, many times — and thrown spoons at it. Yes, Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are back together on the big screen, this time in a dark comedy/thriller about pals torn apart by greed and jealousy. Yes, that sounds awfully like what parts of The Room are meant to be, and what parts of the film are.
Rounding out the list are three vastly dissimilar flicks coming to cinemas this year: Truth or Dare, the latest from horror producer Jason Blumhouse; Yardie, the directorial debut of Idris Elba; and On Chesil Beach, starring Lady Bird's Saoirse Ronan.
Check out the full slate below, and prepare for a busy viewing year ahead.
