7 trailers that have us talking

If you’re like us here at What the efff, you love seeing new trailers–whether they are slotted before a film, premiere during the SuperBowl, or even just drop with no warning (I’m looking at you, Disney), an intriguing trailer is just what the doctor ordered. Most of the movie and series trailers on this list have been out for a while already, but we can’t stop talking about them.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Did anyone else absolutely yeet themselves into the void when they heard “Duel of the Fates”??

Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to Disney Plus on May 25, 2022.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

We already did a deep dive into the sneak peek of the Doctor Strange sequel here, so check that out for the specifics of what we’re expecting to see in this film. The full-length trailer shows us even more tantalizing glimpses of Marvel’s first foray into a horror movie…including what can only be Patrick Stewart as Professor X.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens in theaters on May 6, 2022.

The Rings of Power

There are a lot of things we could write about Amazon’s choice to take on Tolkien’s works with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power…but we’re withholding judgment until after the show is out. (Or, at least, until there’s a trailer with more substance.) Suffice it to say that while we are intrigued, we are also apprehensive. But you can form your own ideas by checking out the sneak peek here.

The Rings of Power premieres on Amazon Prime on September 2, 2022.

Elvis

A Baz Luhrmann take on one of the most famous musicians in history? The King of Rock and Roll? Sign us up. (Although, honestly, what is with papa Tom’s accent??)

Elvis comes to theaters on June 24, 2022.

Jurassic World Dominion

Listen, there isn’t a lot to say here that doesn’t involve us screaming about the return of the original Jurassic Park badasses: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. Chris Who??

Jurassic World Dominion will be released on June 10, 2022.

Moon Knight

Marvel isn’t shying away from its darker source material, and Moon Knight is a great example. The show will focus on Marc Spector and his multiple identities, primarily the crimefighter Moon Knight. Canonically, Marc has dissociative identity disorder, so it will be interesting to see how Marvel deals with mental health and mental disorders.

Moon Knight comes to Disney Plus on March 30, 2022.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

It appears to be a new Golden Age for the Star Trek universe. With a variety of shows ranging from Discovery and Picard to Lower Decks)—not to mention the fourth film in the Chris Pine reboot/alternate universe in the works—it’s a great time to be a Trekkie. The newest addition is Strange New Worlds, which will focus on Captain Christopher Pike.

Strange New Worlds can be watched on Paramount Plus starting May 5, 2022.

BONUS- ‘The Boys’ Season 3

The trailer for the third season of The Boys dropped a few days ago…and because it’s The Boys it’s age-restricted (rightly so) so you’ll need to log into YouTube to watch it here. There’s a little something for everybody…and if you’re excited for Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) there’s a little extra something for you at the end 😉
