A new Liam Neeson action thriller and 4 more big trailers you might have missed this week
Here are five big projects on the way in 2022.
Meanwhile, Netflix also dropped a first look at its new true-crime docuseries The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman.
While JOE covered these in separate articles, here we've compiled the other massive new trailers to drop in the past couple of days for your perusal.

Fans of Liam Neeson action-thrillers like the Taken trilogy and Unknown may want to check out Blacklight which sees the star play a government operative with a shadowy past who is turned on by an organisation he once helped protect.
While it does not have an Irish release date yet, it is out in the US on 11 February so you can expect it sometime after that.

Roland Emmerich, the director of Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, returns this year with new disaster movie Moonfall in which the moon is knocked from its orbit by an unknown force, putting it onto a collision course with Earth.
Two astronauts (Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson) and a conspiracy theorist (John Bradley) work together to attempt to avert disaster and in the process discover that the moon is "not what it seems".
Moonfall sounds and looks positively bonkers. We can't wait to see it. It is currently set for a 4 February release in Ireland.

Netflix will be looking to keep up their hot streak of putting out acclaimed horror series like Brand New Cherry Flavor and Midnight Mass with Archive 81, which is inspired by the popular podcast of the same name and is produced by James Wan (Malignant, The Conjuring).
The show follows an archivist who takes a job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994 and in the process becomes drawn into an investigation of a dangerous cult.
Effectively creepy looking, Archive 81 lands on the streamer on 14 January.
The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window

Netflix also unveiled another trailer this week for this Kristen Bell-starring series which puts a comedic spin on women-led mysteries like The Girl on the Train and the streamer's own The Woman in the Window.
Replicating the vibe of one of those movies so well that some viewers mistook the show for a more straightforward thriller when its first trailer dropped, the series lands on Netflix on 28 January.
Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock

Last but not least, Apple TV+ put out a trailer for its reboot of Fraggle Rock, the popular children's puppet series from Jim Henson.
The new version of the programme premieres on 21 January on the platform.
