Trailer Talk: "Dunkirk," "War of the Planet of the Apes," "Fate of the Furious"

There are have been many exciting trailers the past few weeks, and I can barely keep up with all of them. Let's take a look at some of the coming attractions this week.

Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk"
Christopher Nolan has accomplished so much within the last decade and a half that he pretty much can do whatever he wants. He has become such an exciting, ambitious filmmaker that I get excited by his mere name, like Quentin Tarantino. This summer, he will unleash a World War I film entitled "Dunkirk," about the battle of Dunkirk. The teaser trailer pulled us in and now we get a better glimpse of what to expect this summer. Nolan regulars Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy will be in the film and it looks pretty good. Take a look...

Dom goes bad in the "Fate of the Furious" trailer!
Even after the tragic death of Paul Walker, the "Fast and Furious" franchise is not stopping, and continues to put the pedal to the floor. With the eighth film in the series on the horizon, Dom gets sketchy and turns on the team after the mysterious Charlize Theron appears, apparently having a past with Dom.  Regulars Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell, The Rock and Jason Statham all will be returning for the sequel. I will be interested to see how this one shakes out. I think the "Fast and Furious" franchise has greatly improved from what it used to be. Sure, its a shameless, silly summer blockbuster machine now, but the films are so confident and crazy that its hard not to flip for them. I hope they continue to raise the bar.

War of the Planet of the Apes
If you were to ask me back in 2011 that I'd both love a prequel to "Planet of the Apes," and be completely rabid for more afterward, I would have laughed in your face. But sometimes when you think you Hollywood all figured out, sometimes it comes and surprises you. I love and adore both "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," way more than I ever thought possible. Now, I have to see this play out. I am caught in the web. With the addition of Woody Harrelson, this is going to be one to remember
