Best new movie trailers and TV teasers for streaming services

Borat 2

The best new movie trailer we saw this week is for the sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2006 comedy Borat. Called Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (or simply Borat 2), the movie hits Amazon Prime Video on October 23. It’ll see Borat (Baron Cohen) return to America 14 years after his first adventure, only this time, he’s not alone. Accompanying him on his trip is his daughter, who he wants to “gift” to someone close to President Trump.

The trailer shows us the iconic character is up to his usual tomfoolery — like trying to kill the coronavirus with a pan. The film is scheduled to premiere just before the 2020 US presidential election, and given Baron’s strong opinions against President Trump, expect some political commentary with a strong dose of sarcomedy.

Sound of Metal

Another upcoming streaming title from Amazon Prime Video, Sound of Metal stars Riz Ahmed from HBO’s The Night Of. The new movie trailer shows Ahmed don the hat of a punk-metal drummer who starts to experience intermittent hearing loss after a series of loud gigs. The movie features sound techniques designed to make the audience hear and feel the anguish of its lead character. Directed by Darius Marder (The Place Beyond The Pines), the Sound of Metal premieres on November 20.

Social Distance

Are you stuck at home during the pandemic? So are the characters of Netflix’s upcoming eight-part anthology series. The new trailer shows familiar faces like Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Danielle Brooks (Orange Is The New Black), and others in eight unique stories that depict what we’ve all been experiencing since the start of this year — life with social distancing.

His House

After escaping from war-torn Sudan, a couple struggles to adjust to their new life in the UK. As asylum-seekers, they must follow the stringent rules of the country, including one that decrees that they must not move from the accommodation provided by the government. Things start going south quickly, and they soon realize that the house they’re living in has something evil lurking in the walls. Check out the new Netflix horror movie trailer below.

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness

Capcom’s classic Resident Evil franchise is coming to Netflix in the form of an animated series in 2021. The trailer will make you feel like you’re inside a cut scene from the game. That’s because the horror-action show is being produced and supervised by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, responsible for bringing the numerous Resident Evil games into existence. There’s no release date for the series yet, but the official teaser will give you a good idea of what to expect.

Marvel 616

Have you ever wondered how your favorite Marvel superheroes are created? Comic book nerd or not, everyone enjoys a good superhero story, and the Marvel universe has given us plenty of those in the past 60 years or so.
