Trailer Watch: Which film will you stream this weekend?

Cinemas might be closed for now, but there are other ways to watch. Here are a few options.

EVERY THURSDAY EVENING, we bring you three trailers for films that are due out in the cinema that weekend.

But with cinemas closed at the moment because of the coronavirus, here are three trailers for films you can catch on streaming services online.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Netflix / YouTube

Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams play Lars and Sigrit, a father and daughter duo from Iceland who get their chance to represent their country at the Eurovision. The only hitch is that nearly everyone thinks they are a laughing stock.


Movie Coverage / YouTube

Joseph Gordon Levitt plays a pilot stuck in the cockpit when an incident breaks out on board and men attempt to hijack the plane.  

Within Our Gates

Library of Congress / YouTube

This piece of African-American filmmaking was made in 1920 and has thankfully survived until today. It tells the story – told by director Oscar Micheaux – of a teacher from the Deep South who takes a fundraising trip to Boston, where she falls in love with a man named Dr Vivian. Through its narrative it explores systemic racism in the US at that time.

Which one would you watch first?
