Weâ€™ve got less than a week to go, Star Wars fans, and weâ€™ll finally get to watch the second part of Disneyâ€™s new trilogy. Many of our questions will hopefully be answered in The Last Jedi, but plenty of mysteries will linger on. After all, this is just the second part. A third, and final episode launches in 2019.
But until then, weâ€™ve got a few hot trailers to watch, including the first trailer for the new Jurassic World movie.
7 Days in Entebbe
This story is based on real-life events, an airplane hijacking from 1976, when four people force a plane to land in Uganda, in Entebbe. Thatâ€™s what 7 Days in Entebbe is all about. Well, itâ€™s about the rescue mission. The movie launches on March 16th.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Weâ€™ve seen a bunch of teasers throughout the week, but this is the first full trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Chris Pratt is back, and this time around the dinosaurs need saving. Apparently. Naturally, we expect things to go very, very wrong. This wonâ€™t be our first Jurassic safari. The film drops on Jun 22nd.
Pacific Rim: Uprising Tokyo
Speaking of sequels, thereâ€™s a new Pacific Rim movie in the works, Uprising Tokyo, which launches on March 23rd. Itâ€™s the same thing. Man-powered robots fight against terrible monsters. Hereâ€™s the brand new trailer, with some original commentary:
Please Stand By
Letâ€™s switch gears to a different kind of movie. Please Stand By is not an action-packed flick about monsters, bad guys, or the dark side. It tells the story of Wendy (Dakota Fanning), an autistic woman who runs away from home just so that she can submit her manuscript to a writing competition. Please Stand By arrives in cinemas on January 26th.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Star Wars is almost here, which means itâ€™s time to take a look at a fresh trailer. Mind you, this is an international trailer, so donâ€™t get too excited. Remember, weâ€™ve got less than a week to go:
In theaters next March, Midnight Sun is a Schwarzenneger drama. Wait, itâ€™s not Arnold, itâ€™s Patrick, his son. Itâ€™s about a girl whoâ€™s got to stay most of the time indoors because she suffers from a rare disease. Yes, itâ€™s like Everything, Everything. But different.
Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
