It’s time to turn away from the daily deluge of craziness in the news and look instead at what’s to come — trailers! Where would we be without them? You might hate when they take up 30 minutes of your pre-movie time in the theaters, but they often provide some great insight into your favorite upcoming flicks. And if it’s a movie or TV show for a big franchise, you might just get a peek at some easter eggs as well.

Here are all the biggest and most anticipated movies coming out in the next few months, and their recently dropped trailers. Keep your eyes peeled when watching, you never know what you might miss. 

Hawkeye 

Never once would I have guessed that Hawkeye got his debut series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the holiday season, but I’m not mad about it! And I was definitely singing “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” after watching the trailer, despite the fact that it’s September. 

The series will debut on Disney+ on Nov. 24 and will run for six episodes — one episode will air each week until the week after Christmas. Starring Jeremy Renner as a post “Avengers: Endgame” Clint Barton, the bow-and-arrow extraordinaire finds that — in typical superhero fashion — his past misdeeds have come to haunt him. 

Running around a holiday-ready New York City, he meets Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfield) who, as comic book fans know, is on track to be the new Hawkeye. The trailer seems chock full of fun and shenanigans, so perhaps Kevin Fiege will finally have done Clint justice.

The Matrix: Resurrections

Resurrected indeed. I’m not one to say no to more Keanu Reeves, and despite some very well-founded reservations about a Matrix revival, I will admit that this trailer caught my attention as well as the internet’s. No doubt the theaters will be packed on Dec. 22. 

The teaser trailer for “Matrix: Resurrections” was released last Tuesday — setting Twitter ablaze with anticipation. But luckily Warner Bros. didn’t make us wait for long — releasing an official trailer only two days later. 

This one, though it had significantly more content, left me even more confused and tentatively excited. In a brief summary, Neo (Keanu Reeves) seems to be back in The Matrix, slowly regaining his awareness of the previous movies’ events. 

How did he get stuck here again? We don’t know, but Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) is back to guide him along into the real world. Laurence Fishburne won’t be returning as Morpheus — instead he will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. But if the trailer’s anything to go by, I’m excited to see what he’ll bring to the table. 

God of War: Ragnarok 

Hot dad-bod Thor? Hot dad-bod Thor. This isn’t a movie or a TV trailer, but it’s worth the hype anyway. The ninth installment in the “God of War” series, “God of War: Ragnarok,” brings Kratos back into the video game fold just before the events of Ragnarok — the old Norse apocalypse that heralds war, death, floods and all kinds of evil to the world.

Slated for a 2022 release, the Norse gods slated to make an appearance in the game are Loki, Tyr, Freya and of course hot dad-bod Thor that trended on Twitter last Thursday. It’s one of the most anticipated games of the year and is available on the Playstation. Just from looking at the trailer, the anticipation seems warranted. Hopefully the graphics and the gameplay hold up to what “God of War” fans expect. Only time will tell. 

The Wheel of Time

For so very long we’ve all been looking for the next fantasy sensation after “Game of Thrones.” And while nothing has yet reached HBO’s master, or failure, high-fantasy show, Amazon Prime has come to the table with a strong contender. So sit down and get ready for the newest hat in the fantasy ring, “The Wheel of Time,” coming out Nov. 19.

Based on the novel series of the same name by Robert Jordan, “The Wheel of Time” follows a woman named Moraine, who is a member of a powerful organization named Aes Sedai, in an unnamed world that practices magic. Unlike “Game of Thrones,” the show seems to center chiefly on women — and not in the “let’s ruin her character development” way. I have high hopes for this show — now we can only see if it can contend with its predecessors.
