The premiere teaser trailer for Star Wars prequel Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has the internet abuzz with excitement, anticipation, questions (i.e. who is Jyn Erso played by Felicity Jones?) and lots, and lots of theories (i.e. could Jyn be Rey’s mom??).
But Rogue One isn’t the only trailer to hit the web this week — we’ve got Disney’s The BFG, directed by none other than Steven Spielberg, the hilarious second trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the much-talked about trailer for comedy Swiss Army Man, starring talented young actors Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, and plenty more. Enjoy! ~Shelby Morton

She runs away from the window and hides under her covers, but is plucked from her bed by a monstrously huge hand.

Search Party- All Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) wanted was to get married, go on his honeymoon, and start a new chapter with his beautiful bride. That is, until a friend ambushed the ceremony, winding up with Nardo left at the altar. Nardo chases his fiancée to a resort in Mexico, where he is robbed and stripped of his clothes. As if matters couldn’t get any worse, he also crosses some Cartel gangsters who are thirsty for payback. Nardo must now depend on his less-than-dependable friends (TJ Miller, Adam Pally) to help put his life together in the raunchy comedy Search Party.

The Invitation- In the psychological thriller The Invitation, the tension is palpable when Will shows up to his ex-wife Eden and new husband, David’s dinner party.

Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, this film blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will — and the audience — are unsure which threats are real or imagined.
