Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson in a buddy cop film; a killer doll with the voice of Mark Hamill and Sophie Turner not as Sansa Stark for a change: welcome to Trailer Tuesday.

Even without Vin Diesel, the franchise «The Fast and The Furious» looks promising. Hobbs and Shaw, the roles played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, are on their very own mission. Plus, the killer doll Chucky is back and the dead scientist Alec Holland is revived as Swamp Thing.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

«Look at me, I'm black Superman,» says actor Idris Elba as genetically enhanced villain Brixton. What follows is a Haka performed by Dwayne Johnson, as well as cars and fighter jets and helicopters. This movie might not be life-changing, but «Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw» is sure to keep you entertained.

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 1 August 2019

Child's Play

Chucky, the killer doll, is back. And with her something about an app, smartness. Oh, and knives. The concept of «Child's Play» has been nonsense ever since its original release in 1989. The makers then fully accepted and relished this in later sequels. So why not add a bit of blood and you’ve got a new version of this franchise. Hopefully with a lot of practical effects and little CGI.

Oh and Mark Hamill is the voice of Chucky.

Release date in US cinemas: 21 June 2019

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

The X-Men are launched into space and start the adaptation of one of the most important storylines of the X-Men comics. After being postponed several times, this film is finally supposed to be released this year. I’m just hoping it will be better than «Apocalypse».

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 6 June 2019

Swamp Thing

The Swamp Thing is one of the most interesting and absurd heroes of the DC Universe. Formerly a scientist, now a force of nature and embodiment of «The Green», the elemental force which connects all forms of plant life on earth, Alec Holland fights against «The Black», a force which is strongly associated with death.

Start of the series in the US: 31 May 2019

Detective Pikachu

How cuuuute...

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 9 May 2019
