Another week, another batch of movie and TV trailers to get excited over.

Don't Look Up

This sci-fi black comedy centres on two astronomers (Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio) who discover a planet-killing comet is on a direct collision course with Earth. However, no one really seems to care.
Featuring the acting talents also of Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Meryl Streep and Timothée Chalamet - to name just a few - Don't Look Up could have one of the best casts of any film ever made.
The movie will be released in Irish cinemas on 10 December before debuting on Netflix on 24 December.
Meanwhile, its writer-director Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) is coming to Dublin on 16 December to receive the Dublin International Film Festival's Volta Award and host a special screening of the movie.

From visionary director Guillermo Del Toro comes this neo-noir psychological thriller about an ambitious carny (Bradley Cooper) with a talent for manipulating people who hooks up with a female psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who is even more dangerous than he is.
Del Toro's last film, The Shape of Water, took home the Best Picture at the Oscars, so you can expect Nightmare Alley will be heavily discussed come the movie awards season.
It's out in Ireland on 21 January.

Through a complex series of circumstances that this trailer spends nearly four minutes trying to explain, a pop star (Jennifer Lopez) winds up marrying a stranger in the crowd at one of her shows (Owen Wilson).
A rom-com featuring two of Hollywood's most charismatic leads, Marry Me is set for a February release in Ireland.

In this animated coming-of-age fantasy-comedy, a 13-year-old girl turns into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited.
Pixar rarely disappoints and on the basis of this charming and funny trailer, Turning Red should be another fun addition to the studio's catalogue.
It's out in Ireland on 11 March.
Downton Abbey: A New Era

Downton Abbey is heading to France in the latest installment of the 20th-century set franchise which will be released in March.
