Another Super Bowl means hilarious commercials and trailers from highly anticipated films. (Oh, and football, we guess.) Summer is primetime for blockbusters and under-the-radar hits alike, so the time to build anticipation is now. This year, we saw mostly reboots and sequels, but we’re anticipating them just the same. Maybe next year we’ll be graced with fresh material.
Disney’s live-action reboot of Mulan, starring Liu Yifei, has received its last trailer. This edgy, high-action rendition is set for release March 27, and will take a more realistic approach and draw more inspiration from the epic poem that inspired the animated film. Sadly, this might mean no Mushu or musical numbers—the real world is lame.
This high-flying film franchise’s original entry grossed over $8 million in its opening weekend in 1986, and Maverick is back to for another impossible mission. Listen to Tom Cruise grunt in this 30-second trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, set for release June 26.
Scarlett Johansson stars in Marvel’s stand-alone Phase 4 Black Widow film. Those who haven’t already read the comics will finally learn Black Widow’s origin story and meet her family. See Natasha Romanoff choose between her past and herself on May 1.
Daniel Craig makes his last Bond appearance in No Time to Die. In this installment, we find Bond living tranquilly in Jamaica.

Catch the newest 007 film in theaters this April.
The Fast and Furious franchise is still throwing out surprises, even as they near double digits in sequels. John Cena is our new excessively muscular villain, who is equally as buff as his brother Dom. Han is back from the dead and (to no one’s surprise) Vin Diesel’s biceps finally exceed human limitations. The newest installment of Fast and Furious hits theaters this May 22.
