Trailer Roundup: 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2,' 'Bridge of Spies' and 'In The Heart of the Sea'

Sep 16, 2015

New trailers for three of the hottest movies of the fall have just arrived, and each presents us with a different conflict in a very different time period. From the dystopian future of the final installment of The Hunger Games to the Cold War tension of the newest feature from Steven Spielberg to the 19th century whaling struggle of Ron Howard's latest, these spots all have us excited in their own way.


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

"I just wanted to save my sister."

This special trailer for the conclusion of the popular YA sci-fi franchise focuses on the bond between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Prim (Willow Shields), reminding us that it was the latter sibling who was chosen for the 74th Hunger Games and the former who volunteered to take her place. Look back on the whole series in this montage honoring the sisterly love that unintentionally started a revolution. Opens November 20.


Bridge of Spies

"The standing man."

The second official trailer for Spielberg's reunion with Tom Hanks shows us a bigger movie than we'd seen previously. It doesn't look like an action movie or war epic, but there does appear to be a lot going on. Maybe they're just teasing us by including all of the thrilling spy stuff and shots of tanks, etc., but the trailer also highlights the talkiness we really ought to expect from a historical drama based on the negotiating of a prisoner-of-war swap with Russia in 1960. Either way, it's Spielberg and Hanks so we can't wait. Opens October 16.


In the Heart of the Sea

"It's just a whale."

Sometimes truth is more exciting than fiction, because no movie of Moby Dick has ever been as action-packed as this depiction of the real story behind that classic novel. Thor's Chris Hemsworth stars as Owen Chase, first mate of a ship that was sunk by the massive sperm whale it was hunting in 1820. Seems a missed opportunity for the spot not to mention it's by the director of Splash, but no complaint can trump the fact that this looks intense and insanely entertaining. Opens December 11.
