From Cry Macho to House of Gucci, See This Week's Trailers and Posters

Plus, one last ride for Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The stars came out in Hollywood this week, and not just your typical silver screen legends like Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, Sean Penn and Jeremy Irons. Instead, the musical world stole the scene: Gaga, Eddie Vedder, Idina Menzel, Dwight Yoakam, Gloria Estefan and Lin-Manuel Miranda. And if you aren't already star-struck, there was even an appearance from Cinderella and her fabulous godmother!

Whether you have a taste for comedy, musicals, action, romance, fairy tales or family dramas, the stars are aligned. Here are some of the latest trailers and posters.

Cry Macho

Clint Eastwood's latest film suggests it's never too late for the journey of a lifetime. Playing a washed-up former rodeo star, Eastwood travels to Mexico to bring back the son of a former boss, and along the way he finds himself. The trailer beautifully captures the essence of the film through the masterful editing, the use of expository dialogue, and the eloquent instrumental cue. The poster highlights Hollywood's favorite cowboy while also drawing attention to the boldly themed title treatment. See Cry Macho on Sept. 17.

Flag Day

MGM Studios    
Trailer Agency: Zealot

Flag Day is a family affair, directed by and starring Sean Penn and co-starring his daughter Dylan. Based on a true story, it follows a young woman coming to terms with her larger-than-life father, who happens to be a notorious criminal. The trailer is centered around an emotional monologue, which connects you to the heart of the story. The editing masterfully highlights the film's beautiful visuals, and the grainy film quality gives a nostalgic feel like you're flipping through a family photo album. The family ties continue with the trailer's cue, an original song, "My Father's Daughter," performed by Olivia Vedder, co-written by her father Eddie. Join this family reunion Aug. 20.

Also, check out the character poster, starring Brooklyn's most famous landmark, as well as this comedic squad. The end begins Aug. 12.
