Welcome back to another edition of Top Trailers For the Week, where we highlight the best clips from TV shows, movies and video games. This week is so jam-packed with excitement, you may need to scarf down two Thanksgiving turkeys to make up for the energy.
Yesterday, we posted the news that Universal Studios has released the first trailer for Jurassic World, the latest chapter in the popular Jurassic Park franchise. Featuring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, this film revolves around a much larger theme park – and a bigger, genetically created nightmare that awaits those that visit it. The film opens in the U.S. on June 12th.
The Peter Pan legacy has been told in movies various times, including with Steven Spielberg’s Hook back in the 90’s, but this time around, director Joe Wright is aiming more for a fantasy-based touch with Pan. The story revolves around Peter’s relationship with a young Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund), as they do battle with the dreaded Blackbeard, played in over-the-top fashion by Hugh Jackman. The movie arrives in theaters next summer.
The first downloadable content for Activision’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been confirmed, and will release for Xbox consoles this January, followed by a later release for PlayStation systems and PC. Titled Havoc, this new add-on pack will bring a Zombies mode into the fold, where players team up together to face off against hordes of the undead. A new weapon, the AE4-Widowmaker, will also be introduced with the pack.
The latest game footage for Batman: Arkham Knight has arrived, showing the Dark Knight doing battle with a mysterious army inside the Ace Chemicals plant. Using every tool he has in his arsenal, Batman battles these forces both on foot and in a heavily fortified Batmobile, which can transform into tank mode and really do damage to enemies. The game will release this June for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Forget the imposters. The official trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrived with flying colors the day after Thanksgiving, providing a glimpse of what director J.J. Abrams is bringing to the franchise come December 18, 2015. Featuring incredible shots of a new lightsaber, Stormtroopers, X-Wings and, yes, the Millennium Falcon, the movie should have no trouble drumming up the hearts of fans — not to mention millions in sales from new toys and other merchandise. Suddenly, we’re kids again.
