New must watch trailers for this week: Jungle Cruise, Pixar’s Onward and more

By Matthias Samuel

While a lot of franchises are just launching remakes of movie over and over again, there are some who are making good stuff.

Following is a short list of trailers of a few upcoming movies;

ONWARD

Onward is an upcoming American computer-animated urban fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures. It is directed by Dan Scanlon, produced by Kori Rae. The film is scheduled to be released on March 6, 2020. It’s a road-trip movie — just one that’s set in a fantasy universe — about saving a lost father with a big ticking clock of tension hovering over everything (now that I type it out… that is nearly a description of Coco, too).

JUNGLE CRUISE

It is an adventure film based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the film will star Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Édgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, with Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti, and is set for release on July 24, 2020, by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is set during the early 20th century, a riverboat captain named Frank takes a scientist and her brother on a mission into a jungle to find the Tree of Life which is believed to possess healing powers. All the while, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals and a competing German expedition.

THE WALKING DEAD SPINOFF

The Walking Dead universe continues to endlessly expand into AMC’s entire programming slate. The show doesn’t have a proper name yet, but it’s supposed to start next spring.

JUDY & PUNCH

It is a drama film directed by Mirrah Foulkes. It was screened in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition section at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Mia Wasikowska stars as a puppeteer seeking revenge in this wonderfully odd and unexpected feature debut from writer and actor Mirrah Foulkes.
