This week in entertainment marketing was fitting as the Women's World Cup concluded. We saw a lot of badass women filling our screens—from fighting wars to flying, traveling through space to standing beneath the limelights. In 2019, there's nothing a lady can't do.
We also saw serious family drama, reminders of the injustices of our legal system, and Will Smith turned into a pigeon. Yes, a pigeon. Time to catch up on what you may have missed. Here are some of the notable trailers and posters released this week.
