Watch Matt Damon Try to Grow Food on Mars in New Trailer for The Martian

"On a planet where nothing grows"

The things that happen to Mark Watney (Matt Damon) in The Martian are the stuff of some real scary nightmares: the astronaut is left behind on Mars after his crew mistakenly believes he’s dead. He has no way to communicate back to Earth. His food is running out. There’s nothing to look at except uninhabited Mars landscape as far as the eye can see. But much like the runaway hit book by Andy Weir it’s based on, The Martian isn’t just a thrilling adventure story – it’s also laugh-out-loud funny, too. Damon told EW, “It feels like it held on to what everybody loved about the book. At the end of the day it’s a really entertaining story.”

In the film’s latest trailer, we get more glimpses of Watney’s adventures, as well as the assorted efforts of his crew still in orbit and the scientists back home in order to bring him home alive. “Ridley and I talked about not wanting to lose the sense of terror. The idea of being hundred and million of miles away from anybody else and he’s just solving problems. It’s very practical and incredible and optimistic,” says Damon. “We tried to lace that with the real dread of being that alone and how horrifying that is.”

The Martian arrives in theaters Oct 2. You can see the new trailer above.

Watch James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe Raise the Dead in Victor Frankenstein Trailer

"We shall create a man—after our own image."

Fresh from the laboratory, Twentieth Century Fox released the first trailer for Victor Frankenstein, complete with a charming, swear-filled introduction from stars Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy.

Based loosely on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein from a script by Max Landis (American Ultra), the new film finds a young Dr. Frankenstein (McAvoy) bringing life back to the dead with help from his trusty assistant Igor (Radcliffe).

“It’s about creation, and Victor is not only creating this monster but in a sense Igor, who in the beginning of the movie is living in abject conditions and considered less than human,” Radcliffe told EW. The new film, which costars Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott, is told from Igor’s vantage point, and features a pretty cute reference to Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein about midway through the trailer.

Check out the teaser above; Victor Frankenstein is out Nov. 25.

Watch Bradley Cooper Play a Former Rock-Star Chef in Burnt Trailer

Cooper plays real-life chef Adam Jones

Here’s what’s cooking in the first trailer for Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper as a former rock-star chef reviving his once-sizzling career: mouthwatering entrées, delectable desserts, and, as Cooper says in his voiceover, plenty of heat, pressure, and violence in the kitchen.

The Oscar nominee plays Adam Jones, a chef who once a sensation after he moved to Paris at 16 to learn how to cook — but then lost everything to drug abuse. After he decides to clean up, he moves to London to restore his reputation. “I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing,” he says in the trailer. “The kitchen’s the only place where I’ve ever felt like I really belonged.”

Burnt hits theaters Oct. 23.

Walter White who? In the new trailer for Trumbo, Bryan Cranston stars as the celebrated screenwriter whose career came crashing down when he and other Hollywood figures were accused of communism.

Here, Finally, Is the First Deadpool Trailer

You've seen the trailer for the trailer. Now here's the trailer

“One thing that never survives this place is a sense of humor,” evil sidekick Ajax, played by Ed Skrein, tells Ryan Reynolds’ character Wade Wilson, a.k.a Deadpool, while strapping him onto a gurney. “We’ll see about that, Posh Spice.” Wilson deadpans.

If the first official trailer for the eagerly-awaited Marvel movie Deadpool is any indication, the movie promises just as many laughs as it does thrills.

The red band trailer, which begins with the cancer diagnosis which prompts Wilson to volunteer for the genetic experimentation program that gives him his superpowers (including an inability to be killed), is an action-packed blur of gunshots, punches, smashed cars and…more jokes.

“You may be wondering why the red suit…well that’s so bad guys can’t see me bleed,” he says during a showdown with several armed gunmen. “This guy’s got the right idea…he wore the brown pants.”

The highly anticipated Deadpool film, set for a 2016 release, is a spinoff from the forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine in which Deadpool has a cameo — a fact Reynolds references in the “trailer for the trailer” released Monday.

Watch the full trailer below.

Watch Deadpool Pop Up in a New Fantastic Four Trailer

“But wait, there’s more!”

The hype machine is kicking into high gear for Deadpool, Fox’s upcoming superhero flick starring Ryan Reynolds as the smart-mouthed comic book mercenary. The actor appears in character at the end of a new trailer for another Fox superhero film, this weekend’s Fantastic Four.

The extended trailer, which aired Monday night during American Ninja Warrior, showed Miles Teller as Reed Richards, the Marvel scientist also known as Mr. Fantastic, as well as the rest of his crew: Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. But at the end of the trailer, Reynolds’ Deadpool cuts in.

“But wait, there’s more!” he says, pipe in hand. “See Fan Four in theaters this Friday, and I’ll throw in my Deadpool trailer for free.”

He then made a joke about an erection, but you can see that for yourself in the video above.

Earlier Monday, the actor donned the red-and-black suit in another teaser for a trailer. And a trailer that originally screened at San Diego Comic-Con will air on Tuesday’s episode of Conan.

Watch the Intense Trailer for Beasts of No Nation

The film tells the story of an African child soldier involved in civil war

The first trailer for Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming Beasts of No Nation is an emotional, intense look into the life of an African child soldier that ends with Idris Elba’s character forcing the little boy to make a choice: kill the man in front of him who possibly killed his family — or let him escape with his life.

The New Fargo Trailer: Mystery, Murder, and Minnesota Accents

The new season is set in 1979

“That’s how it starts, with something small, like a break-in at the Watergate Hotel,” a bearded Nick Offerman scoffs. “But this thing’s only getting bigger.”

And that’s how a new trailer for the upcoming season of Fargo starts, with a mysterious diner murder in otherwise bland and boring Luverne, Minn. Amidst the backdrop of a frigid northern winter, we hear a mix of foreboding spooky music and quirky disco-era beats, see streaks of blood splattered on the ground, and smirk at blunt sexual innuendos. There’s Kirsten Dunst as a town tart, Patrick Wilson as a Vietnam vet-turned-police-officer investigating a local gang, and many rounded Minnesota o’s. If Mad Men made the 70s sexy, Fargo makes it alluringly brash.

The show will premiere on FX in October.

Here’s the Suicide Squad Trailer That Leaked at Comic-Con

The studio released the high-quality reel after a low-resolution, pirated version made its way around the Internet

Warner Bros. executives were faced with a dilemma when a Comic-Con visitor posted a pirated, low-quality tape of the studio’s Suicide Squad sizzle reel online. Should they wait to release a trailer on their own terms while a poor rendition made its way around the Internet, or put out the high-resolution version earlier than they wanted?

The studio went with the latter option on Monday, putting out the clean version of the three-minute teaser on YouTube.

Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution for the studio, told Deadline, “We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic-Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

The gang of dangerous criminals busted out of jail to work on black ops for a government agency are played by a star-studded cast of characters including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne. Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
