Where the Crawdads Sing trailer reveals love and murder

This summer, Sony Pictures will adapt Delia Owens’ bestselling novel, Where the Crawdads Sing. Daisy Edgar-Jones stars in the film as Catherine “Kya” Clarke, a young woman who was abandoned by her family in the early ’50s. But rather than become a ward of the state, Kya managed to fend for herself in the wilds of a North Carolina marsh. She could have been happy there, but Kya couldn’t keep the rest of the world away forever.

In the new trailer for the movie, we see that Kya is courted by two young men: Tate Walker (Taylor John Smith) and Chase Andrews (Harris Dickinson). But with love comes heartbreak, betrayal, and even murder. When one of Kya’s suitors is found dead in the marsh, she is quickly arrested and put on trial for murder. However, Kya has never allowed anyone to walk all over her, and she’s not about to start now.

Here’s the official description of the film:

“From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.”

Bullet Train trailer pits Brad Pitt against lethal assassins
Brad Pitt in Bullet Train.

If you've been waiting for a non-superhero and non-video game action movie to get you back in theaters, then maybe you've been looking for Bullet Train all along. Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for the film, which finds Brad Pitt portraying an aging hitman. Well, as much as Pitt is physically capable of aging. The point is that Pitt's character, Ladybug, finally has a purpose in life again after getting an assignment on one of Tokyo's famous bullet trains.

There's just one problem with Ladybug's professional comeback. Or technically, four problems. He's not the only assassin who was given the assignment. If Ladybug wants to survive and get paid, he will have to be the last man standing among five trained killers. May the best hitman (or hitwoman) win.

Peter Parker has a big problem. In the mid-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio got his revenge on Peter by exposing his double life as Spidey and framing him for murder. Due to that turn of events, the hero touted as "the next Iron Man" is suddenly public enemy number one. Now, after a great deal of anticipation, we finally have an advance look at Spider-Man: No Way Home. Perhaps in response to the rough cut of the trailer leaking over the weekend, Sony Pictures debuted the first trailer for No Way Home at CinemaCon last night.

The holidays are coming, so that means the time has come for yet another high-profile film with an all-star ensemble cast. This year, we get Collateral Beauty, a drama starring Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kiera Knightley, Michael Peña, Naomie Harris, Jacob Latimore, Kate Winslet, and Helen Mirren.

Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the latest trailer Thursday, providing another look at Smith as Howard, a man who finds an unusual way to try and cope with the loss of his daughter. His coping strategy involves writing letters, not to people but things, including love, time, and death. Shockingly, he gets responses -- in the form of visits from each. They are played by Knightley, Latimore, and Mirren, respectively. (As he says, "turns out death is an elderly white lady." Who knew?)
