A handful of highly movie anticipated trailers have been released in the last week, and we’re counting down the top five. Which film are you most looking forward to?
Though the trailer does not show too much, this highly anticipated film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Melissa Leo, Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans and Nicholas Cage is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. Academy Award winner Oliver Stone wrote and directed the film.

From director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs is the second biopic for the deceased Apple founder, but will hopefully perform much better than the Ashton Kutcher film Jobs released in 2013. The trailer shows Michael Fassbender portraying a version of Steve Jobs that looks nothing like the real man. Unfortunately the film’s timeline ends in 1998, missing out on the major revolution Steve Jobs caused with the advent of the iPod, iPhone and iPad. Who knows, maybe there will be a sequel.
