Joker, Game of Thrones, Avengers: Endgame... it’s Trailer Tuesday

Trailer Tuesday is your guide to the best trailers of the past week. This time starring failed clowns, White Walkers in Winterfell and the grand finale everyone’s been waiting for.

The new «Joker» movie shows Gotham City in the 1980s and a maniac who has become the city's most feared criminal. Bill Murray and Adam Driver go on a zombie hunt in «The Dead Don’t Die» and Hellboy is as merciless and violent as never before in the same-titled movie. On top of this, two eras are ending in April: «Avengers: Endgame» and «Game of Thrones».

Hellboy

Guillermo del Toro, director of the first two Hellboy movies, which were hugely popular with fans but mildly successful from a commercial point of view, is no longer involved. Instead, Neil Marshall has taken on the job to reinterpret the story with David Harbour as the red devil in the leading role. The trailer, not only R-Rated but Super R-Rated – whatever Super-R-Rated means – reveals a Hellboy movie with more blood and violence than anything that’s ever been seen. Hellboy? Hell yeah.

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 11 April 2019

Game of Thrones: season 8

This is probably the last trailer of the final season of «Game of Thrones». Two relics each of the Starks, Lannisters and Targaryens lie orphaned in the snow: a hint at what happens if the White Walkers win and The Long Night breaks over Westeros again. Goosebumps guaranteed.

Start date: 14 April 2019

Avengers: Endgame

«Avengers: Endgame» is the grand finale of everything Marvel has created to date. It’s probably also the last appearance of some beloved characters, which makes the movie all the more explosive. Marvel’s trailers have never given away much. That’s good. This trailer is the most revealing in terms of storyline, although it only lasts a minute.

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 24 April 2019

The Dead Don’t Die

Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover and Tom Waits. They all play a role in this zombie apocalypse, which reminds me of «Zombieland». The story? The undead are attracted not only by the flesh of the living but also by things they used to like when they were still alive. Like tennis. Or Chardonnays.

Expected release date in Swiss cinemas: June 2019

Joker

Arthur Fleck's (Joaquin Phoenix) mother always told him to be happy and put on a friendly face. One day, the failed stand-up comedian is brutally beaten up on the streets of Gotham City. This event is the beginning of his transformation. What makes this storyline so gripping is that, like Christopher Nolan's Batman version, it plays in a tangible reality.

Release date in Swiss cinemas: 17 October 2019

I'm an outdoorsy guy and enjoy sports that push me to the limit – now that’s what I call comfort zone! But I'm also about curling up in an armchair with books about ugly intrigue and sinister kingkillers. Being an avid cinema-goer, I’ve been known to rave about film scores for hours on end. I’ve always wanted to say: «I am Groot.»
