Trailer catch-up: Spider-Man, Fifty Shades Darker & Baywatch


This week, there has been an insane influx of movie trailers from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Fifty Shades Darker to Baywatch. There has been so much new footage to feast your eyes on you could be forgiven for missing some. So here’s a handy guide of the trailers you may have missed this week.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 

One of the most important in my opinion is the new Spider-Man, lead by Tom Holland for the first time. Spider-Man is my favourite superhero and while I loved Andrew Garfield, I was impressed by Holland in Captain America: Civil War. My favourite moments in the trailer are all interactions with Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)


Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades of Grey was poorly received but I feel hopeful about this sequel after watching this trailer. Obviously, it could be as mediocre as the previous but I hope it will be as sexy, saucy and dark as this footage promises.



When a Baywatch movie was announced I grumbled. I don’t think it’s necessary but I didn’t hate this trailer as much as I expected. It actually looks quite fun in a cheesy, ridiculous way and the stunts seem Fast and Furious-level ludicrous but what the hell, I’ll watch it – it does star Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson after all.


The Mummy 

I am a huge, unashamed fan of the Brendan Fraser Mummy films and I still think this is not needed. However, it seems radically different and not at all like we’ve seen before, so that’s one positive. It also seems like Tom Cruise has turned it into every Tom Cruise-starring action film in recent years, for better or worse (reserving judgement for now).


The Circle 

I have read the Dave Eggers novel and loved it and I am so worried about this being bad. The casting of Emma Watson already makes me think it will be a tamer, less sex-heavy version but I hope it remains as dark and thrilling as the book. If not, I will be pissed off.


War for the Planet of the Apes 

I am not won over by this trailer tbh but I did love both Dawn and Rise and Matt Reeves returns as director so I’m sure it will be great. Andy Serkis is back as Caesar, Woody Harrelson joins the cast and the CGI looks on point again.
