New Trailers: Foundation, Hamilton, Brave New World and more

I’ve been making my way through the Studio Ghibli movies now that they’re on HBO Max, and last week I was able to see them Kiki delivery service for the first time. It’s a remarkably charming movie, and it shows Ghibli going a long way to figure out what, uh, the plot is after the extremely bare bones My neighbor Totoro It came out just a year earlier.

Kiki delivery service Add enough bets to the beautiful worlds of Ghibli to make you care what is happening, but not so much as to really stress you out. The movie is serene to watch: almost all the characters are remarkably nice and generous, the landscapes are beautiful, and the talking cat doesn’t hurt either.

Check out this week’s 11 trailers below.


Here’s our first look at the Apple TV Plus adaptation of FoundationIsaac Asimov’s epic series of science fiction novels. I’ve been pretty skeptical about Apple’s interest in doing something too interesting (His latest original is a documentary about parents called Potato), but this looks legitimately impressive so far. The show premieres sometime next year.

On the moon

On the moon It looks like Netflix’s attempt to make a Disney-style musical, and it looks like it might work. The movie comes from former Disney animator Glen Keane, and it’s about a girl trying to build a rocket to the moon to meet the Moon Goddess.

This is cool: Netflix had a group of filmmakers create new shorts while they were stuck at home during the pandemic. The images seem decidedly rough, but that simplified approach is a big part of the appeal here.

Brave New World

NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, launches in less than a month, and we’re now taking a closer look at its most eye-catching original series, an adaptation of Brave New World starring Alden Ehrenreich. It opens on July 15.

The king’s man

The last trailer of the Kingsman The prequel makes the movie look as ridiculous as an action movie submission like the two movies that preceded it, which makes sense, given that Matthew Vaughn has returned as director. The film comes out on September 18.


This Swedish film about a fitness influencer was due to debut in Cannes (which didn’t quite happen, meaning the whole festival), and it looks like an intimate drama about the horrors of fame.

Muppets Now

Disney is making a Muppets variety show for its streaming service that will have iconic characters interviewing celebrities and featuring some dumb segments along the way. It opens on July 31.
