The Emoji Movie, War For The Planet of The Apes, and Battle of the Sexes make our daily movie news!

Today might as well be called Trailer Tuesday as we got brand-new trailers for The Emoji Movie, War For The Planet of The Apes, and Battle of the Sexes! And as if that's not enough, a new featurette from The Mummy, too! Check out all the excitement below:

Battle of the Sexes tells the story of the electrifying 1973 tennis match between world number one tennis champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). Billed as "The Battle of the Sexes", it became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, adding fuel to the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

Judging by the trailer, this movie looks to have equal parts drama, laughter, and awesome 70s fashion! Count us in to watch this when it opens at Cineplex theatres on September 22nd. Tennis, anyone?

Yesterday we were promised a new trailer was on its way for War For the Planet of the Apes, and we are not disappointed! Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. Quit monkeying around, watch the trailer below and see War for the Planet of the Apes when it hits Cineplex theatres on July 14th!

Last but not least, we got a brand-new trailer for The Emoji Movie! Inside our smartphones is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favourite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user. In this world, each emoji has only one way to express emotion - except for Gene (T.J. Miller), a "meh" emoji who is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the source code that will fix Gene.

If this trailer is anything to go by, this movie is sure to be fun for the whole family! Catch it in Cineplex theatres on July 28th!

In late-breaking news, the folks bringing us The Mummy dropped a new featurette on Twitter! Watch as Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) meets an ally, Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe). Hm, wonder if he's keeping any deep, dark secrets...? I guess we'll find out for sure when The Mummy hits Cineplex theatres on June 9th!
