Ghostbusters: Afterlife     HD720p 102MB
First trailer for another Ghostbusters movie, to be in theatres in July. When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd are part of the cast. Members of the original movie are expected to make cameo appearances. Directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air, Tully), son of Ivan Reitman, director of the first two films.
So far the emphasis is on kids and the "scary" aspects, and not on humour.

In the Heights     HD720p 103MB
First trailer for the big screen adaptation of the musical written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, to be in theatres in June. Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. Corey Hawkins, Gregory Diaz IV, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, Jimmy Smits and also Miranda are part of the cast. Directed by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2, Step Up 2: The Streets).

Promising Young Woman     HD720p 100MB
Darkly comedic revenge thriller. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman ... until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in her life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past.
The official summary is rather vague. The one on IMDb is more concrete: A young woman, traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against men who cross her path. Laverne Cox, Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Max Greenfield and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are also part of the cast.

The Assistant     HD720p 92MB
Timely thriller drama that follows one day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s – making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire. But as she follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day. Matthew Macfadyen is also part of the cast.

6 Underground     HD720p 13MB
While equally frantic as the first trailer, this one has at least some dialogue that provides the basis for a story. Not that that is really necessary for a Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, The Rock film. The description on IMDb reads: Meet a new kind of action hero. Six untraceable agents, totally off the grid. They've buried their pasts so they can change the future. Cast members include Ryan Reynolds, Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona and Ben Hardy.
Now streaming on Netflix. An earlier 'Visit Italy' promo. Which is a bit painful to watch if you've been to Florence. YouTube.
