Check out the top five trailers below:
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: A down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds his life on the line when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea — including Captain Jack. In order to survive, Jack seeks out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that empowers whomever possesses it with total control over the seas.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Jacob (Asa Butterfield) goes to find the home where his grandfather spent time as a young boy during WWII in Wales. Once there, Jacob meets Emma (Ella Purnell), a resident of the home who takes him back in time to 1940 to meet the rest of the “peculiar children.” He also meets Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), who takes care of the children and protects them from Hollows – creatures who kill people for their eyes. As Jacob gets to know the children, he realizes he has more in common with them than he thought.
Deepwater Horizon: In the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, creating the worst oil spill in American history. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell, and John Malkovich, this biographical drama recounts the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.
The Magnificent Seven: In the Old West, the sleepy town of Rose Creek is plagued by savage outlaws led by Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). They burn down a church and slaughter many of the innocent civilians in order to drive them away from their parcels of land. The widow (Haley Bennett) of one of the men they killed approaches Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) to ask for help. When he hears Bogue’s name, Chisholm agrees and rounds up a group of six diverse men, including wise-cracking gambler Josh Faraday (Chris Pratt), to take on the outlaws.
Masterminds: David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is a hapless armored vehicle guard, yet he always felt he was meant for a live of adventure. David finally gets his wish when he meets Kelly (Kristen Wiig). She lures him into executing a $17 million heist for both herself and her group of double-crossing, half-brained criminals. They betray David and take off with the cash. David is forced to go on the lam, dodge authorities and try to pin the scheme back on his manipulative comrades.
