Jungle Cruise, Onward, Earthquake Bird, Judy & Punch, Zombieland: Double Tap

Jungle Cruise     HD720p 91MB
First trailer for another attempt to turn a theme park ride into a multi-billion action adventure franchise, to be in theatres next July. It's about a charismatic riverboat captain (Dwayne Johnson) and a determined explorer (Emily Blunt) on a research mission. Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti are also part of the cast. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan, Run All Night).
It gets increasingly difficult to keep the various Dwayne Johnson franchises apart. I hesitate to admit it, but this looks quite enjoyable. And it sure tries to pay homage.

Onward     HD720p 101MB
Full trailer for the next animated Pixar movie. Set in a suburban fantasy world, it introduces two teenage elf brothers (Chris Pratt, Tom Holland) who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Further voices will be provided by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer. Written and directed Dan Scanlon by (Monsters University).
If the trailer makes you want to watch a scene from Baby Driver.

Earthquake Bird     HD1080p 22MB
Psycho-sexual thriller in which Lucy (Alicia Vikander) is a buttoned-up translator who has been in Japan for five years and is desperate to blend in. Her reticent nature hides old scars. There’s also the fact that people around her keep dying – accidentally or otherwise. After a street encounter with a hot photographer (Naoki Kobayashi), she quickly finds herself under his spell, despite all the warning signs. And the pot is stirred further when American nurse Lily (Riley Keough) – all blowsy sexual confidence and cultural naïvety – arrives in town and Lucy experiences some frightening impulses. Directed by Wash Westmoreland (Colette, Still Alice, Quinceañera).
Limited theatrical release in early November, will start streaming on Netflix November 15th.

Judy & Punch     HD1080p 46MB
UK trailer for this darkly comic fable – part revenge story, part fantasy epic. In the town of Seaside (nowhere near the sea), husband and wife puppeteers Punch and Judy stage their shows for rowdy, mob-minded locals for whom a great day out is usually the public stoning of a fellow citizen (invariably a woman accused of witchcraft or some other spurious crime). Though Punch (Damon Herriman) proclaims himself the greatest puppeteer and his beating stick rouses cheers from the crowd, it’s Judy (Mia Wasikowska) who breathes artistry into the otherwise crude show. But during a drinking bout and a tragic mishap with their child, the hot-tempered Punch brutally beats Judy, leaving her for dead in the woods. Taken in by Doctor Goodtime and a society of outcasts, Judy plots her revenge.

Zombieland: Double Tap     HD720p 26MB
Redband trailer for the sequel, in which, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, our four slayers (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, Emma Stone) must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family. Cast additions are Rosario Dawson, Zoey Deutch, Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch. Again directed by Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad, Venom, 30 Minutes or Less).
Bill Murray makes an appearance in the trailer.
