From BGR: 8 new movie trailers you need to watch from this past week

I’m not going to blame you if you’re not going out to the movies this weekend, with all the crazy Black Friday deals that you can already shop right now, and the insanely busy week that lies ahead. Not to mention that Justice League just got the meh treatment — although I personally plan to see it no matter what critics have to say.

But if you do plan to go to the movies, and you like MoviePass, you absolutely need to check out this limited promotion they’re running.

That said, I’ll remind you that Mudbound opens this weekend, and you can watch it from the comfort of your own home. That’s right, it’s a Netflix flick, and a great one from what I hear. And yes, I’ve got a boatload of new trailers for you. Let’s check them out!

A Quiet Place

I’m not the biggest fan of horror movies because most of them are hardly entertaining. But this first trailer for A Quiet Place certainly makes me curious. First of all, we’ve got Emily Blunt and John Krasinski acting together as husband and wife who have to protect themselves and their kids from a terrible danger. Apparently, if they can hear you, they can hunt you. Who are they? This trailer doesn’t say.

Bullet Head

On paper, this movie sounds quite promising. We’ve got Antonio Banderas, John Malkovich, and Adrien Brody starring together in this crime story. It should launch at some point this year, although there’s no firm release date for it. Color me intrigued.

Deadpool 2

This trailer is just amazing for so many reasons. Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1st. That’s absolutely everything you need to know:

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Yes, there’s a Fantastic Beats sequel in the works and this time around we’re talking about The Crimes of Grindelwald. We’re going to have to wait for one more year to see it. As for the teaser below, well, it’s just a teaser that reveals the movie’s name and launch date.

Hotel Transylvania 3

I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of the Hotel Transylvania series, but the franchise does have plenty of fans. The third installment in the series launches on July 13th, and the animation has a great cast. Check it out:

Rampage

Whenever I see Jeffrey Dean Morgan now, I immediately think of his Negan character from The Walking Dead. However, Rampage, due April 20th, is not about Morgan’s character. Dwayne Johnson is actually the star of this action movie based on the classic 1980s video game that features giant animals. The wolf is my personal favorite.

The Greatest Showman

Of course, you want to see a musical starring Hugh Jackman about a man who invented show business. Am I right? Well, that’s great, because come December 20th, that’s exactly the kind of film you’ll be able to watch in cinemas. Here’s a brand new trailer for The Greatest Showman:

Titanic

Wait a second, Titanic again? Rose? Jack? For some reason, let’s call it cash, the movie will be re-released in cinemas. Insert shrug emoji. So let’s take a look at this rerelease trailer and pretend we’ve never seen the movie. December 1st, if you were wondering.

From BGR: The service that lets you go to the movies every day without paying for tickets just got cheaper

Movie tickets aren’t going to get any less expensive anytime soon, but there’s a way to watch as many new films as you want in a theater without breaking the bank. It’s called MoviePass, a subscription service that lets you watch a movie a day at any theater that’s included in the program. At $9.95 per month, the service is already a bargain if you ask me. But what if I told you that it’ll get even cheaper, for a limited time?

Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. purchased a majority stake in MoviePass, a new press release reveals, and that’s apparently why MoviePass is going to get cheaper for a limited period. It’s probably just a coincidence that it’s all happening just ahead of this year’s Black Friday craziness.

You can now get your MoviePass subscription for just $6.95 per month, for a total of $89.95 per year, which also includes a $6.55 processing fee. So you’ll save 25% on your MoviePass subscription, and you can still go to the movies as much as you want. That’s a great deal that movie fans should take advantage of. Even if you’re already a MoviePass subscriber, you still qualify for the sale:

New and existing subscribers of MoviePass who take advantage of the new one-year subscription plan will be billed $89.95 for the year in advance at the time they subscribe to the plan.

Just head on over to MoviePass to get your subscription at the new lower price. It’s unclear how long the promotion will last, but we do know that it’ll only be available for a “limited time.â€�
