Film Friday (6/3): This Week's New Movie Trailers

View a guide to this weekend's new theatrical releases including Popstar, Me Before You, TMNT: Out of the Shadows, and more.

When it premiered at Sundance this year, writer-director Rob Burnett’s adaptation of Jonathan Evison’s The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving failed to win over many critics despite two likable lead performances. Paul Rudd stars as a former writer turned caregiver whose first client is Trevor (Craig Roberts of Submarine and Red Oaks), an 18-year-old suffering from muscular dystrophy. An impromptu road trip leads them to cross paths with a hitchhiking student (Selena Gomez) and a pregnant woman (Megan Ferguson). Find The Fundamentals of Caring on Netflix beginning June 24th.

In Marauders, Bruce Willis reunites with his Extraction director, Steven C. Miller, to play a bank owner suspected of robbing his own banks. Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista and Adrian Grenier play a group of FBI agents who discover a larger conspiracy while investigating the deadly heists. Find out if this generic action film is better that the first Willis/Miller collaboration when it hits theaters and VOD on July 1st.

In his latest documentary, director Werner Herzog applies his unique methods and point of view to explore the internet. Starting with its birth and continuing to a speculative future, Herzog examines the internet’s impact on our lives in 10 chapters. With very good early reviews, Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World arrives in theaters, On Demand, and on iTunes and Amazon Video August 19th.

Before coming to PBS later this year, Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, a documentary on the legendary TV writer and producer by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp, Detropia), will be released in select theaters on July 8th.
