New Trailers: 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children,' 'The Legend of Tarzan,' and 'War On Everyone'

Jun 20, 2016

We're almost at the midway point, but the year is just getting started with some of 2016's most anticipated movies. The rest of the summer and the fall are bringing some big releases from some of our favorite filmmakers, and today we have trailers for three of them. Check out two upcoming movies featuring Samuel L. Jackson and two featuring Alexander Skarsgard below.

 

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

If the freaky children straight out of his book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories doesn't make it already clear this is a Tim Burton movie, maybe the Edward Scissorhands-style landscaping will clinch it for you.

Based on the novel by Ransom Riggs, it's about a mansion filled with young characters with extraordinary abilities, like a 1940s X-Men team. Eva Green is their Professor X while Asa Butterfield is a seemingly ordinary newcomer to the special home and Jackson co-stars as the main villain, a creature set on killing all "peculiars." You can visit the strange world on the big screen beginning September 30.

 

The Legend of Tarzan

The final trailer for this latest take on the Edgar Rice Burroughs character also features Jackman, this time apparently as a good guy. See him buddying up with Alexander Skarsgard, who plays the iconic hero opposite Margot Robbie's Jane and Christop Waltz's baddie.

The new spot is heavy on action, particularly the kind where Tarzan swings from tree to tree by vine. We also get to hear his famous yell -- the one introduced and made famous with Johnny Weissmuller's portrayal more than 80 years ago. But sadly no leopard skin loincloth. See the David Yates-helmed movie when it hits regular and IMAX screens on July 1.

 

War On Everyone

Skarsgard can also be found in the new feature by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard), where he's paired up with Michael Pena. Below is the NSFW red band trailer, which makes the buddy cop movie look reminiscent of the recent release The Nice Guys. As teased during the warning screen at the beginning, it promises drug use, violence, swearing, Glen Campbell music, and "sexy dancing." Sadly it's not Skarsgard and Pena doing the dancing, though. We can bet this is even more hilarious than it looks, not just because it's McDonagh but because reviews out of Berlin and SXSW have stated it to be so. This one has no U.S. release date yet.
