This week’s top trailers have a dash of animation and superhero charm. Minions, which scooped the number one spot at the box office this week, is also the number one trailer. The science fiction thriller Self/less starring Ryan Reynolds held the number two spot. Following that, the two anticipated superhero action films that we are all waiting to watch, Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, secured the third and fourth spot respectively. Finally, Pixar’s beloved Inside Out rounded out the top five.

2) Self/less trailer: A terminally ill elderly billionaire (Ben Kingsley) dying from cancer buys a chance for eternal life through an experimental underground medical procedure called “shedding,” which transfers his consciousness into the cadaver of a younger man (Ryan Reynolds).
