Five of the best movie and TV trailers this week

Think you’re running out of movies and shows to watch this summer? As if, there’s plenty to binge-watch, but there’s also more to look forward to.

From a Netflix blockbuster giving us those Goodfellas vibes to the return of one of TV’s freakiest shows, this week saw a number of trailers drop that has us all hyped up. We’ve rounded up five of the best below.

We still have to wait a little while for their releases, but in the meantime, here’s what we’re watching and playing this week, and you should be, too.

The Irishman

"I heard you paint houses?" That's a line that's going to stay with us for a long time. You can guess what the subtext is and it sets the scene for a gripping trailer. This is Scorsese back to his best, with Robert De Niro back in the saddle and an all-star cast that may be ageing, but new technology means they can be forever young. The Irishman can't come soon enough.

Mindhunter Season 2

We've been waiting a silly amount of time for the second season of Mindhunter, the Fincher-created TV masterpiece. It's a cop drama like no other, with the two leads leading the way when it comes to serial killer profiling. Season 2 sees a new case and a familiar face - Charles Manson, who's played by Damon Herriman. He is also playing Manson in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

American Horror Story 1984

Now, this is more like it. American Horror Story has taken a bit of a dive recently but this trailer proves that there is still life in the whole anthology series. This time, it's the turn of the slasher flick with this trailer looking like one big homage to Friday the 13th.

Peaky Blinders Season 5

Peaky Blinders is back for a fifth season and Tommy is still completely corrupt but he is now an MP for Labour. It's the change the show needed as, after four seasons, it did feel like it was getting a little long in the tooth. This new change for Tommy and the family looks like an ideal gear change. There's also a move to America, too, at the start of the Wall Street crash.

The Hunt

You know what it's like when rich people get bored, they just love to go on a big killing spree and hunt poor people. Written by Lost alumni Nick Cuse and Damon Lindelof, this is going to be something of a dystopian treat, with a fantastic cast that includes GLOW's Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts and Hilary Swank.
