Check out Tribute’s top trailers below:
Money Monster- TV personality Lee Gates (George Clooney) gives insider tips on air, aimed at everyday people, which has earned him a title as the money guru of Wall Street. A young man named Kyle (Jack O’Connell) watches the show and places all of his family’s money on a tip from Gates. When the tip proves to be bad and the money is lost, Kyle goes to the station and takes Lee and his entire show hostage on air. He threatens to kill Lee unless he gets the stock up 24 and a half points before the bell. The show’s ratings soar as the entire country tunes in to watch the hostage situation unfold.
Captain America: Civil War- Tensions rise between Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and the other Avengers when global governments initiate an act to regulate all superhuman activity due to human casualties. Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) feels guilty and believes superheroes should register, while Steve believes in the principles of freedom and has a clear mistrust of the government. The events put a strain on the friendship and eventually, The Avengers.
The Jungle Book- In this revamp of the classic Rudyard Kipling novel, orphan boy Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is raised in the jungle by Bagheera (Ben Kingsley) the panther, and Raksha (Lupita Nyong’o) the mother wolf and her cubs. Although he wants to stay, it’s clear that Mowgli should live in the “man village.” With the help of Baloo (Bill Murray), Mowgli fights the despicable villains Shere Khan (Idris Elba) and Kaa (Scarlett Johansson) and ultimately decides his future as a human in the jungle.
Mother’s Day- Follows the lives of different characters — Sandy (Jennifer Aniston), a divorced mother of two, Jesse (Kate Hudson), who’s frustrated with her out-of-touch parents; Miranda (Julia Roberts), a successful TV personality whose long-lost daughter (Britt Robertson) suddenly appears; Bradley (Jason Sudeikis), a widower struggling to raise two daughters — and how their very different lives connect leading up to Mother’s Day.
The Accountant- Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck), a math genius with an obsessive personality, is a freelance accountant who “cooks the books” for dangerous criminal organizations. To dodge the suspicions of the authorities, he takes on a legitimate client, and a clerk of the client is Dana (Anna Kendrick), who discovers a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. As Christian digs into the books and gets closer to the truth, bodies begin to pile up.
