The best new movie trailers: Gemini Man, Deadwood, Godzilla, and more

Crafting the perfect movie trailer is hard work. There must be enough intrigue to get the audience excited while not revealing too much about the film’s plot points and key moments (even then, things don’t always work out perfectly). Because of the sheer volume of new movie trailers being released in a given week, we’ve taken the liberty of rounding them up and separating the good from the bad for you. Check out the latest must-see trailers below, whether you’re looking for action, horror, comedy, or something else.

It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: Spoiler alert! Tread carefully, friends. (Note: All release dates are for the United States.)

Gemini Man

Gemini Man (2019) - Official Trailer - Paramount Pictures

The first trailer for this sci-fi action film is an interesting one. There hasn’t been too much buzz about the movie up to this point, but it has some impressive star power both in front of the camera and behind it, as well as some intriguing visual effects. The movie casts Will Smith as an aging assassin who’s trying to retire, but finds himself hunted by another killer who seemingly knows all of his moves — a killer who, he discovers, is actually a younger clone of him. So it’s basically modern-day Will Smith vs. Fresh Prince of Bel Air-era Will Smith, courtesy of Weta Digital’s de-aging techniques. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, and Benedict Wong play supporting roles.

Release date: October 11

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Final Trailer

This is ostensibly the final trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and it offers quite a bit of fresh footage while showcasing the spectacle of giant-monster carnage that the movie will deliver. If this sort of cataclysmic creature chaos is your thing, you’re probably not going to be disappointed with King of the Monsters, which packs just about every monster from Godzilla’s history into one film thanks to some pretty fantastic use of visual effects — or at least, that’s what the impressive trailer promises. Oh, and it also has a great human cast, including Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Vera Farmiga, Sally Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Kyle Chandler, Thomas Middleditch, Zhang Ziyi, Charles Dance, and Ken Watanabe.

Release date: May 31

See You Yesterday

See You Yesterday | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

This Netflix original movie looks like it could be a good one, particularly with Spike Lee on board as producer. The film follows a pair of brilliant teenagers whose work on time-travel backpacks is put to the test when the older brother of one of the teens is killed by police officers.

Release date: May 17

Men in Black: International


A new chapter in the Men in Black franchise begins with this film, and it looks like a lot of fun. Thor: Ragnarok co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson reunite for this installment of the sci-fi adventure series, which introduces a few new agents, takes the franchise global, and features Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, and Liam Neeson in supporting roles. Emma Thompson reprises her role from the prior franchise, too.

Release date: June 14


Deadwood: The Movie (2019) | Official Trailer | HBO

Fans of the original, HBO series that was canceled far too soon and inspired this film will probably want to wait until they’re actually watching it to believe it’s real, given how many rumors and on-again, off-again updates have surrounded it. Nevertheless, the movie looks like it captures everything we loved about the show, from Ian McShane’s ability to make obscenities sound downright Shakespearean as saloon owner Al Swearengen to Timothy Olyphant’s iconically stoic performance as Seth Bullock. Nearly all of the other, fan-favorite cast members return for the film, too.

Release date: May 31
