The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

herculesWelcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week.

Last up for the noteworthy newcomers that couldn’t quite crack The Best Stuff is our first look at the Peanuts movie. The first part of this piece was screened at CinemaCon last year, but now, 20th Century Fox has added an interaction between Charlie Brown and Snoopy that’s both highly nostalgic and will absolutely warm your heart.
