‘Dark Phoenix’ and all the new trailers you need to watch this week

We have just one more week, Marvel fans -- one week until Captain Marvel launches in theaters, and we’ll finally get the last missing piece before Avengers: Endgame. To keep you entertained until then, you’ve got a few options, including the new comedy A Madea Family Funeral, or the thriller The Wedding Guest. When it comes to new trailers, we’ve got new Pokemon Detective Pikachu and Dark Phoenix clips for you, as well as a new Hellboy trailer. On top of that, the first teaser for The Irishman is also here.

Captain Marvel

Of course there's a new TV spot for Captain Marvel, as well as a new featurette: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC4-o0isLzk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDncY_kxsII

Dark Phoenix

Now that she’s done playing Sansa Stark, Sophie Turner can focus on what may become her next big thing. The actress will play young Jean Grey in Dark Phoenix, the upcoming X-Men movie that’s set to launch on June 7th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

Hellboy

David Harbour of Stranger Things is the new Hellboy, and the new movie is set to launch well before Dark Phoenix or even Avengers 4. It's out on April 12th, but you don’t have to wait that long to catch the brand new trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zR1GOLhlU4

Little

Little is the reversed story of Big, and if you haven’t seen the latter, you should totally check it out before you see this. In Little, we have a woman who is transformed into a younger version of herself, getting to re-experience an age that isn't burdened by all the problems that come with adulthood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzD4c5_u2XM

Pokemon Detective Pikachu

Ryan Reynolds is what will make this Pokemon film great, and is the only reason I want to see this particular movie in theaters. It's like someone put some of Deadpool in a tiny, fluffy, yellow body. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bILE5BEyhdo

Osmosis

Osmosis is a French movie, but before you dismiss it, you should also know it’s a Netflix creation. So it’ll stream to your TV right away when it launches. It’s a story about the dating apps of the future that will let you discover your perfect match by allowing the app to collect data directly from your brain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKgKa7mlEqE

Stockholm

Noomi Rapace and Ethan Hawke star in this crime film that tells the story of the 1973 hostage crisis. We don’t have a release date yet for it, just a trailer to give us an idea of the story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb_NlOqnH5s

The Irishman

When The Irishman premieres this fall, it’ll launch both in theaters and on Netflix. It’s a movie I’ve been dying to see ever since I heard Scorsese and De Niro were involved. The film tells the story of a known mafia hitman who supposedly confessed on his death bed that he was involved in the killing of Jimmy Hoffa. If you’ve already read the book, then you know what I’m talking about. The first teaser for the Netflix film was released earlier this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfr44G1KJmc

The Lion King

Disney released a new clip for the upcoming Lion King live action film. If you loved the original, you’ll surely want to see what this version looks like, especially considering all the great artists involved in the project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQN75AKDwks

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

This won’t be a typical Don Quixote story, because it involves an ad exec who somehow gets entangled with Don Quixote and ends up in an adventure that looks nothing like his real life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiiRZJUTT2k

Massive alien fish washes ashore in California

It was only a couple of years ago that scientists finally confirmed the existence of a new, huge species of saltwater fish called the Hoodwinker Sunfish. The fish, which was named in honor of its remarkable ability to remain undocumented for so long, is one of a handful of large sunfish species. Now, one such fish made its presence known in Southern California, washing ashore where it was eventually discovered by passersby. Seeing a seven-foot sea creature resting in its sandy grave is obviously a striking sight no matter what, but the incident became even more interesting when researchers revealed just how far the fish was from home. The hoodwinker sunfish is native to the waters of Australia and New Zealand, and has also been found near South Africa and Chile. There's really no reason it should have been near North America at all, much less washed up on a California beach. "This is why it's so intriguing why it has turned up in California," Marianne Nyegaard, the scientists who first discovered the species back in 2017, told CNN. "We know it has the temperate distribution around here and off the coast of Chile, but then how did it cross the equator and turn up by you guys? It's intriguing what made this fish cross the equator." In fact, the idea of a hoodwinker washing up in North America is so absurd that those who found it didn't even consider the possibility. It was thought to be another species of large sunfish, but when images of the dead sea creature began popping up online, researchers realized just what it was. "It had gone unnoticed because no one really realized it looked different," Nyegaard noted. "There's a long history of confusion about the species in the sunfish family. This fish had managed to stay out of sight and out of everybody's attention."
