Here is a little insight on four of the latest movie trailers to drop. The round-up includes some classic themes, with ghostly activities, agoraphobia, and classic villains that we love to hate. If you want something a little meatier you might want to head over and read Kim Lyons’ opinions in her recent article for theverge in which she also briefly discusses the Netflix documentary This is a Robbery

The episode left her feeling somewhat homesick with its Bostonian accents. For those who don’t know, the series is centered around the unsolved 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist which made the headlines. Valued at around $500 million, a total of 13 works were stolen by two individuals who dressed in police uniforms. The filmmakers give their theory on who was responsible as to this day no arrests were ever made. If their suspicions are correct they could be looking at a tidy reward. The museum is willing to offer $10 million as a reward for any information that could lead to recovering the stolen goods.

An interesting series to take a look at but what is in the movie pipeline? Let’s take a look.

THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW

The second trailer for The Woman in the Window is floating around and feels reminiscent of the 1950’s Grace Kelly classic Rear Window. The leading lady Anna Fox played by Amy Adams is in a dark headspace suffering from severe agoraphobia. The character makes friends with a neighbor but is soon forced to deal with her issues as the story progresses. She comes to believe that she has witnessed her friend’s (Julianne Moore) murder. Directed by Joe Wright (Darkest hour & Atonement) the film was due to hit screens last May but the wait is almost over. Such actors as Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Anthony Mackie, Tracy Letts, and Gary Oldman also star in The Woman in the Window. It’ll be on Netflix on May 14th.

CRUELLA

Another we have been waiting on is Cruella the origin story behind the iconic villainess that helped drive the plotline of Disney’s classic 101 Dalmatians. The second trailer was just released and it puts a new perspective on the character’s backstory. Emma Stone looks to be bringing us a promising portrayal alongside Emma Thompson playing Baroness von Hellman who seems to be worse than the Ms. Devil we originally came to despise for her puppy-skinning fashionista antics. We aren’t sure who we are rooting for? Many of these villain origin stories seem to be coming to the surface and this one might just be worth a look. Cruella will be released in movie theaters and on Disney Plus (for an additional charge) on May 28th.

GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE

Full disclosure, the latest trailer doesn’t really tell us much for this one but what is to know? It is pretty much to introduce a new mini-puff marshmallow character. The Ghostbusters sequel sees a family moving to their creepy inherited house and the rest looks to be your typical light-hearted Ghostbusters gold. Starring Paul Rudd alongside the new creatures as well as actors, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, and even some of the original Ghostbusters will be in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which is planned for release in movie theatres on November 11th.

LOKI

Last but not least we have been graced with a teaser for the latest Marvel spin-off series. Introducing the Time Variance Authority; the bureaucratic, time-keeping governance that is vital to a lot of other potential multi-verse storylines. The story follows Loki the Asgardian trickster god played extremely well by Tom Hiddleston pitted against the untrusting Owen Wilson as Mobius. Loki has to help fix the reality he broke. Loki will be available at Disney Plus on June 11th.
