From BGR: 6 new movie trailers you need to watch from this past week

Black Panther really is as good as they say it is, and the number one reason I like it so much is that it’s a game-changer for the entire Marvel universe we saw so far — but I won’t spoil it for you.

On the other hand, Game Night and Annihilation open this weekend, with the second one being the more exciting of the two. If you haven’t seen Black Panther, that’s still the best choice overall.

Let’s move on to new trailers!

Blockers

Launching on April 6th, Blockers is a comedy about parents who are desperate to prevent their daughters from having sex on Prom night. Yes, that’s why it’s called that. It’s got John Cena leading the pack of parents, and that’s a good enough reason for me to want to stream it as soon as it hits Netflix.

On Chesil Beach

Saoirse Ronan, Emily Watson, and Samuel West star in On Chesil Beach, a love story set in England, in the 60s. Yes, the period of time that coincides with the sexual revolution. It’s happening in England, however, if that wasn’t clear.

The Forgiven

Thoroughbreds

Opening March 9th, Thoroughbreds is likely the last film to star the late Anton Yelchin. But that’s not the only reason to watch it. It’s a friendship story between two young women who would do anything to make their problems disappear. Yelchin is part of the solution. Or is he also a problem?
