Trailers of the week: Ke Huy Quan returns to the multiverse in Loki

We get bombarded with teasers, trailers and promotional clips relentlessly – each weekend Steve Newall sorts through the best of the week for you to check out and get excited about. 


Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson are back for season two of Loki, with the welcome addition of multiverse expert and Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan. Time-jumping shenanigans seem in store, against the retro-futurist backdrop established in the first season. Oh, and buckle up for a bunch of quips too, as well as links to Phase 5 of the MCU. Will this season be as Jonathan Majors-heavy as Marvel intended, following his arrest on assault charges after a domestic dispute and numerous subsequent accusations of similar behaviour? He features in the trailer, but who knows…

Dicks: The Musical

A24’s first movie musical promises songs like Gay Old Life, All Love is Love, Out-Alpha the Alpha, The Sewer Song and more—and delivers on the title with a cock joke in the opening few seconds of the trailer and plenty of other NSFW language. Larry Charles (Borat) directs, bringing writers/stars Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp’s off-Broadway musical Fucking Identical Twins to the screen—with help from castmates Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, Bowen Yang, and Megan Thee Stallion.

Saw X

In the tenth Saw film, John Kramer aka Jigsaw sets out to get his typically gory, trap-based revenge once again—but this time it’s personal, etc. His victims? The medical team who performed supposedly life-saving surgery on Kramer—except it seems they never removed the tumor inside him… Well, someone’s getting something removed, I guess?

Spy Kids: Armageddon

Robert Rodriguez is back as director, with a new generation of kids-turned-spies in this new instalment in the family franchise. Zachary Levi and Gina Rodriguez play their parents, who (as these things tend to go) need saving from evil villains. Cue gadgets, gags, and cool-looking sunglasses…

One-of-a-Kind Marcie

Presidential elections have been a bit complicated in the US in recent decades (“Who on Earth voted for Pig-Pen,” indeed). Thankfully, politics is now getting the Peanuts treatment, as Marcie—with a track record at great problem-solving—finds herself thrust into the unwelcome role of class prez.

Choose Love

Interactive rom-com, you say? Just how “interactive”, we ask… OK, we’re not quite there yet, but Netflix do have this choose-your-own-adventure style romcom that lets you make choices for Cami (Laura Marano) as she navigates a complex love life and tempting choices.


Futurama is back, and so, the universe dictates, Matt Groening’s Disenchantment must come to an end. But before it does, there’s this final 10-episode season that sees the Abbi Jacobson-voiced Bean get ready to go out with a bang.
