Whether you’re seeking controversial comedy, heart-wrenching drama, high-flying fantasy, or heartwarming reality, we’ve got you covered with this week’s trailer round-up. Here’s the latest, featuring stars like Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Renée Zellweger, and Aziz Ansari.

Aziz Ansari: Right Now — Hits Netflix on July 9.

“Interesting times for white people.”

Master of None star Aziz Ansari returns to Netflix with his latest comedy special. In the first clip, Ansari talks Crazy Rich Asians and white guilt. And there are plenty of punchlines that can be pulled from the topic of white nonsense. But we’re curious to see if/how Ansari will speak to the exposé. He didn’t address the topic when Dustin saw him perform last fall. But in more recent club dates, Ansari did. It seems this special would be a prime opportunity to address the issue on his own terms. Will you tune in to hear it?

After The Wedding — Opens August 9.

“What did you do?”

This one might seem familiar to Mads Mikkelsen fans. It is the English-language remake of the 2006 Danish drama that earned scads of praise and international attention for helmer Susanne Bier, and an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year. This time the drama is gender-swapped with Michelle Williams in the role of the orphanage operator whose search for funding throws her into an unexpected and emotionally ravaging reunion. Billy Crudup, Julianne Moore, and Abby Quinn co-star.

Judy — Opens September 27.

“You won’t forget me will you?”

Renée Zellweger stars as the one, the only Judy Garland. Based on Peter Quilter’s stage play End of the Rainbow, Judy follows the legendary performer and star of The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me In St. Louis and 1954’s A Star is Born on a series of sold-out concerts in London. From the looks of it, Zellweger will bring the heat to the winter of 1968, and the winter of Garland’s life.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil — Opens October 18.

“You do not know me.”

In 2014, Maleficent called into question all we thought we knew of the shape-shifting, horned villain of 1959’s Sleeping Beauty. Now, Angelina Jolie reprises of the role of Maleficent for a sequel that explores how the sorceress and the Princess Aurora’s (Elle Fanning) bond is tested by an upcoming wedding, where unlikely allies and new threats come out of the shadows. Look, I basically hated the first one. But THIS ONE HAS MICHELLE PFEIFFER! SO WE ARE GOING.

Queer Eye — Season 4 hits Netflix on July 19.

“Try not to cry. Try not to lose it.”

The Fab Five are back! Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France return to Kansas City for a new string of makeovers that are sure to make your heart swell and your eyes shed happy tears. This time around, they’ll reconnect with one of Jonathan’s high school teachers, remodel a woman totally caught in the ’90s, and meet a farmer who has “never had a conversation with a gay person before.” It’s gonna be a time. Cue the inspiring music!
