Coming Soon Trailers: Ad Astra, Rambo Last Blood.

Brad Pitt aims for the stars and Sly concludes the story of John Rambo in theaters this weekend.

The box office should be jumping this weekend.  You have one of Hollywood’s most bankable actors in what is increasingly becoming one of Hollywood’s most bankable genres with Ad Astra.  You have Stallone dusting off his red bandana to conclude the Rambo franchise…which honestly I thought he did a decade ago, but what do I know?  And for those not looking for explosions or moonshots, we’ve got Downton Abbey heading to the big screen.  I’m honestly intrigued to see how well this flick does.  I mean, it’s already made 12 million dollars abroad.  I just don’t know how much of the craze for this series is left.  It could go big, or it could implode, and I don’t have a clue either way.

Meanwhile, the VOD market is packed to bursting as well.  There’s a dark comedy featuring Demi Moore and Ed Helms.  There is a horror-thriller with Sean William Scott.  And there is another creepy clown movie, late to the party.  Seriously guys, nobody’s buying your discount Pennywise impersonations.  Knock it off.

Oh, and Nicolas Cage is in another straight to VOD movie.  Shocking.
