Welcome to Trailer Happy Hour, the big bucket where we dump in some of the day’s teasers for new movies and TV shows, stir it all up with a big stick, and then dare you to drink the entire unholy mixture. Today we’ve got trailers for Roma, Hunter Killer, Operation Finale, and more, so just hit “play” on each one and enjoy the onslaught to your senses. (Or just play each one individually, whatever you prefer.)
There are low-key teasers, and then there’s this clip promoting Alfonso Cuarón’s Netflix movie Roma. As Vulture helpfully explains, the drama is about a Mexico City family in the ‘70s and involves “a social hierarchy where class and race are perversely intertwined.”
Netflix trailers that involve someone pitching their show to Netflix have been done before, but this teaser for Demetri Martin’s upcoming stand-up special plays nicely into its title, The Overthinker. He’s overthinking his own promo! It’ll premiere on August 10.
This trailer for Hunter Killer has all of the stuff we want see in a movie trailer: Explosions, submarines, political intrigue, and Gary Oldman. It also has Gerard Butler and multiple scenes where people say “ooh rah,” which should tell you exactly what kind of movie this is going to be. It’ll be in theaters on October 26.
Spoiler alert: This To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trailer ends on a good visual gag. The teen-friendly drama is about a high school student with a habit of writing down all of her secret crushes in never-to-be-mailed love letters, until one day all of the letters somehow get delivered to various shocked boys. It’ll be on Netflix on August 17.
Oscar Isaac hunting Nazis in the ‘60s! If you’re not on board with Operation Finale already, then watch this trailer and get on board. Also, try to ignore the fact that Nick Kroll is in this, which—no offense to him—is still kind of distracting. It’ll be in theaters on August 29.
You know you’re in for a ride when a trailer for a documentary opens with funny people getting choked up, and this trailer for the Gilda Radner doc Love, Gilda carries those emotions for its whole run. It’ll be in theaters on September 21.
Finally, we have another emotional documentary. This one is for the Paramount Network’s I Am Paul Walker, which tells the story of Fast And Furious star Paul Walker from the friends and family members who knew him. It’ll premiere on August 11.
