It’s Trailer Watch time once more, where we collate all the major trailers of the day into one easily digestible dose! Today we present: Pawn Sacrifice, Cop Car, The End of the Tour and A Walk in the Woods. So let’s get to it, shall we?
First up we have the first trailer for Pawn Sacrifice, a biographical drama about troubled American chess champion Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) as he prepares for his legendary 1972 match with Russian grandmaster Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber).
The film sports an impressive supporting cast of great character actors including Michael Stuhlbarg, Lily Rabe (TV’s American Horror Story) and Robin Weigert (TV’s Deadwood). It’s directed by Edward Zwick (recently announced to direct Jack Reacher 2) and written by Steven Knight (Locke).
Check out the tense trailer below:
Pawn Sacrifice doesn’t have a UK release yet but is set for September 18th in the U.S.

Moving on we the brand new trailer for Cop Car, a thriller starring Kevin Bacon as a small town sheriff who sets out to track down two kids who have taken a joy ride in his car. It comes from director Jon Watts, who turned certain heads with last year’s horror Clown, and co-stars “that guy from that thing” actor Shea Whigham.
Watch the trailer below:
Cop Car doesn’t have a UK release date yet but is set for August 7th across the pond. However, it will make an appearance at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Next up we have the trailer for The End of the Tour, a drama starring the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Segel, Anna Chlumsky, Ron Livingston and Joan Cusack, which was extremely well-received when it premiered at Sundance back in January. The biographical drama recounts a magazine reporters travels and conversations with celebrated author David Foster Wallace (played by Segel, in what some are describing as his best ever performance) during one of his promotional book tours.
Here’s the trailer:
Once again, The End of the Tour doesn’t have a set UK release date but is out in the U.S. on July 31st. We’ll update once a UK date is set.

Finally, we have the trailer for adventure comedy drama A Walk in the Woods, based on the memoir by celebrated travel author Bill Bryson. After spending two decades in England, Bryson (played in the film by Robert Redford) returns to the U.S., where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the Appalachian Trail with one of his oldest friends (Nick Nolte).
