Start your Wednesday off right with some brand new trailers.
We’re a movie site, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love television too – and one of our favorite shows in recent years was Battlestar Galactica. So, when a trailer for the new BSG prequel Blood & Chrome made its way online, sharing it with all of you was a no-brainer.
The minute-and-a-half-long clip debuted at WonderCon over the weekend, but thanks to the magic of the Interweb, you didn’t have to be in attendance to actually see it. Early word is that the prequel is very action-oriented, which seems pretty clear in the trailer. Also of note is that it appears as though the FX have improved greatly between the end of the first show and now, too.

Moving back into the land of film, here’s the latest clip (which apparently debuted earlier this month) for Ian FitzGibbon’s Death of a Superhero – a tear-jerking drama about a young man with prodigious artistic talents facing death.
The film stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster as the teen. His parents, concerned about his mental state, send him to see a psychiatrist (Andy Serkis – in the flesh and not CGI) who convinces him to fight for his life. While the trailer certainly seems touching, it’s hard to shake the feeling that we’ve seen this story before. Critics have been largely positive about the film, citing Brodie-Sangster and Serkis’ performances in particular, so maybe it treads new ground in what feels like familiar territory.
Death of a Superhero makes its VOD debut on April 17th.
Finally, we wrap things up with a new clip for the upcoming Tribeca Film Fest feature Jesus Henry Christ.
A quirky dramedy about a super smart boy (Jason Spevack) who goes out to find his biological father, the trailer highlights the laughs and the love of the story, which also features performances from Toni Collette and Michael Sheen.
Have a peek at the trailer for yourself and see what you think. Jesus Henry Christ makes its theatrical debut on April 20th. [via The Movie Box]
