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.

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, the small screen is doing plenty to lure your eyeballs, courtesy of sneak peeks at two very different TV shows you've probably been counting down the days for: Donald Glover's Atlanta and Netflix's Jessica Jones.

On the film front, meet your next potential favourite comedy in The Breaker Upperers, which comes with an impressive pedigree. The New Zealand effort is presented by Taika Waititi, written and directed by its lead actors Jackie van Beek (What We Do in the Shadows) and Madeleine Sami (Top of the Lake), and also features James Rolleston (Boy) and Rima Te Wiata (Hunt for the Wilderpeople).

Plus, Solo: A Star Wars Story now has an official trailer to follow up its Super Bowl spot, once again reminding us that we're going to be watching new instalments in the George Lucas-created space saga for the rest of our lives. Still on the hero front — the superhero and comic book front, that is — Deadpool 2 brings back its irreverent take on the genre, while Venom gets villainous.

And finally, if you've been wondering what's next for Amy Schumer, let I Feel Pretty answer that question.

Check out the full slate below, and prepare for a busy viewing year ahead.
