Trailers Spotlight: HARRIET and JOJO RABBIT

Happy [almost] Friday, folks! Today we have a set of trailers I think are worth checking out, and per tradition, I always like to mix the tone/genre/style when posting trailers.

Musings on Robert Pattinson casting + Matt Reeves’ noir vision for The Batman
