I’m ready This is a robbery, and I won’t spoil the ending, but if you think there will be a massive revelation at the end, then you may be disappointed. What I found interesting in the four-part series was how the storyline drew on the voices of newspaper reporters who have covered the heist – and its aftermath – over the years. Considering the filmmakers, Colin and Nick are Barnicle, long-time sons Boston Globe columnist and current MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle, it makes sense that they put journalists at the center of the story. Go see, Boston looks absolutely gorgeous and the Boston accents are more authentic than anything else you’ll see this year. And if you can figure out the series’ central mystery, there’s a $ 10 million reward in it for you.
Here are this week’s trailers (which are heavier on the zombie content than usual):
Army of the Dead
We got a teaser a few months ago, but this is the first official full trailer of Zack Snyder’s big budget heist movie. A group of mercenaries shoot their way to Las Vegas to get $ 200 million buried under the Sunset Strip before the government destroys the entire city. Plot twist: Vegas has been overrun by zombies – not the messy, mindless creepers of The living Dead, Please note; these zombies are organized and smart. And fast, like the World war Z zombies. (Side note: Kenny Rogers’ The gambler is the perfect music for this trailer: “you need to know when to hold them / know when to fold them / know when to run / know when to run.”)
Dave Bautista plays the zombie war hero who leads the ragtag group into battle. Army of the Dead hits Netflix May 21.
The underground railway
Based on Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The underground railway is set in the novel’s alternate history, making the railroad titled a true 19th-century railroad helping slaves escape from the south. Thuso Mbedu plays Cora Randall, who is on the run from a plantation in Georgia and is chased by a bounty hunter (Joel Edgerton). Directed by Barry Jenkins, all episodes of The underground railway a certain Emmy contender who looks terrifyingly beautiful – premieres on Amazon Prime Video on May 14.

This is one of several movies delayed by the coronavirus pandemic (the last trailer was in January 2020 and the movie was due out last May) but is finally back on the schedule with a new release date. Many familiar faces will return for this F9including (of course) Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, John Cena and Helen Mirren. The latest installment in the Furious franchise hits theaters on June 25.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness
Don’t you hate it when zombies invade the White House and you have to go in to save the day? This teaser trailer provides some more clues about Netflix’s new anime series set two years after the events of Resident Evil 4. While an earlier teaser showed Claire walking around what appeared to be a haunted house, this latest teaser shows that she and Leon are in the White House for different reasons, and then: zombies.
