Mother!

Black Swan di­rec­tor Dar­ren Aronof­sky de­liv­ers a creepy new take on the clas­sic haunted house tale. Promis­ing signs: the poster fea­tures Jen­nifer Lawrence hold­ing her own bloody heart, and Javier Bar­dem co-stars as the other half of a cou­ple vis­ited by un­in­vited guests Michelle Pfeif­fer and Ed Har­ris.

Kings­man 2: The Golden Cir­cle

It could have been yet an­other ac­tion movie based on a comic book, but the first Kings­man film stood out thanks to its oddly dark hu­mour. Along­side re­turn­ing stars Colin Firth and Taron Eger­ton, the se­quel adds (brace your­self ) Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, El­ton John, Chan­ning Ta­tum, and Julianne Moore.

Bat­tle of the Sexes

Emma Stone and Steve Car­rell re­visit the heated 1973 face­off be­tween two ri­val ten­nis play­ers: fem­i­nist Bil­lie Jean King and proud chau­vin­ist Bobby Riggs. Sarah Sil­ver­man adds to the me­dia blitz sur­round­ing the match as Gla­dys Held­man, founder of World Ten­nis mag­a­zine (long live print!).

Brad’s Sta­tus

A Ben Stiller male-bond­ing drama we’re ac­tu­ally ex­cited about. No, re­ally. This one’s writ­ten and di­rected by Mike White, the man who brought us School of Rock and two of our favourite episodes of Freaks and Geeks, and the trailer is ac­tu­ally, hon­estly, kind of funny.
