There was a flurry of trailers this week for films opening this summer. First is Judd Apatow's hotly anticipated new comedy Trainwreck, which stars writer-comic Amy Schumer as a single woman in New York who enjoys playing the field until she meets a doctor (Bill Hader) who makes her think about settling down. Costars include Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton, Marisa Tomei and Matthew Broderick. It's out in July. Watch 'Trainwreck' Trailer.

Also opening in July is Poltergeist, a remake of the 1982 classic about a boisterous ghost in a suburban house. Packed with big freak-out moments, the question is whether they've put the best stuff in the trailer. But director Gil Kenan proved adept at thrills in Monster House, and his cast includes Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris. Watch 'Poltergeist' Teaser Trailer.

Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton is the story of the iconic rap group N.W.A. Shot on location in South Central Los Angeles, it's about five friends - Ice Cube, Dr Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella - who launched a musical revolution in the 1980s. The red-band trailer makes the film look intense and powerful, with a sharp young cast including Corey Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson, Neil Brown, Jason Mitchell, Aldis Hodge and Keith Stanfield. It opens in August. Watch 'Straight Outta Compton' Redband Trailer.

Also out in August, Guy Ritchie's movie version of the 1960s TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as rival secret agents in 1963 who need to work together. Costars include Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant, Jared Harris and David Beckham. It looks whizzy and entertaining, and seriously action-packed. Watch 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E' Teaser Trailer.

With a darker and more intense trailer, Hitman: Agent 47 is another spy thriller, this time about a super-slick assassin (Rupert Friend) who has been engineered to be stronger, smarter and faster than normal soldiers. Also starring Zachary Quinto, Ciaran Hinds and Hannah Ware, it looks loud and violent, and visually impressive. It also opens in August. Watch 'Hitman: Agent 47' Teaser Trailer.
