While the earlier promotion for Terminator:Genisys has primarily focused on reintroducing the new versions of characters you know and love—Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), John Connor (Jason Clarke), Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger)—this latest short U.K. trailer takes a different approach. They fly the “we’ve got an Oscar-winner in our movie” flag high, spending a fair amount of the minute-long run time showing off J.K. Simmons. Which is never a bad move.

The first trailer for the next James Bond movie, Spectre, just dropped, and it should go a long ways to getting you pumped for Sam Mendes sophomore take on the most famous spy in movie history. If you’ve been waiting to for mystery, suspense, and a SPECTRE ring on the screen for the first time since 1971, you’re in luck, because it has all of those things.

(I maintain they’re all good, or at least watchable, up to Jason Takes Manhattan.) It sounds like the next revisitation, however, just might accomplish that feat.

All you could do was gape at awesome looking flying beast monsters and wish with every fiber of your being that this was a real movie. And now it’s going to be, and it’s bringing a couple of big Hollywood names along for the ride.
