All the best new TV and movie trailers from the past few days…

JOE already covered a couple of this week’s big trailers such as the ones for Peter Jackson’s music documentary The Beatles: Get Back and the Home Alone reboot Home Sweet Home Alone.

And we certainly will be covering the major teasers that will hit the web courtesy of DC’s digital FanDome this weekend, including a new look at the Robert Pattinson-starring The Batman.

However, there were other trailers to be unveiled over the past few days that should get movie and TV lovers excited and we’ve compiled them here for your perusal.

Do you like scary movies? If so, you’ll probably be interested in checking out this fifth entry in the legendary slasher franchise.

From the filmmaking duo behind 2019’s brilliant Ready or Not, the movie sees a new killer don the Ghostface mask and begin targetting a group of teens, who wind up getting help from old series favourites.

It hits cinemas on 14 January.

The Black Phone

Speaking of horror, The Black Phone looks absolutely chilling and sees star Ethan Hawke reteam with his Sinister director Scott Derrickson.

It centres on a 13-year-old boy who is abducted by a child killer (Hawke) and locked in a soundproof basement, where he starts receiving calls on a disconnected phone from his kidnapper’s previous victims.

Based on a short story from Joe Hill and currently sitting on a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, The Black Phone arrives in theatres on 28 January.

The Tender Bar

And now for something completely different, George Clooney directs this wholesome, warm-looking comedy-drama about a young boy (played when he is older by Tye Sheridan) who finds a replacement for his absent father in his uncle (Ben Affleck) and the patrons at the bar he runs.

An Amazon original movie, it is expected to land on Prime Video in Ireland on 7 January.

Oscar-winner Halle Berry directs and stars in this sports drama where she plays an MMA fighter.

Sold on that description alone? Us too. Bruised drops on Netflix on 24 November.

And now onto TV, one of this year’s most highly-anticipated shows premieres in Ireland on Disney+ from 12 November.

Starring and executive produced by Michael Keaton (Birdman, Spotlight), Dopesick focuses on the opioid crisis, the worst drug epidemic in American history.

On top of the important subject matter, it also boasts a phenomenal supporting cast including Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart), Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire), Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead), Rosario Dawson (Trance) and Will Poulter (The Revenant).

Big Mouth

Last but not least, Netflix’s much-loved adult animated coming-of-age sitcom returns for more foul-mouthed, awkward yet honest teen antics.

Big Mouth’s fifth season arrives on the streamer on 5 November.
