Welcome to Trailer Thursday, where we help you decide what to do with your Friday night. Here’s what’s coming out tomorrow.

42

Even if you’re not a baseball fan, this movie about how Brooklyn Dodgers second baseman Jackie Robinson and GM Branch Rickey broke the color barrier looks like a hit.

See it if:

  • You love sports movies.
  • You love historical movies.
  • You want to see Harrison Ford pull off Rickey’s distinct accent.

Disconnect

Disconnect is a nasty look at how our increasing dependency on technology could (does?) backfire. The intertwined stories include a boy who’s being cyberbullied, a reporter who has gotten too involved in an online teenage sex scandal, and identity theft victims.

See it if:

  • You need to take a long, hard look at your own online activities.
  • You need to take a long, hard look at how you interact with your loved ones.
  • You need to take a long, hard look at Alexander Skårsgard.

Scary Movie V

It’s your typical Scary Movie schlock: a whole slew of movie parodies encapsulated in a vague plot line.

See it if:

  • You’ve been been wondering what Simon Rex has been up to lately.
  • You’ve always been curious about what a mashup of Paranormal Activity, Mama, Black Swan, Scream, Fifty Shades of Grey, Sinister, Madea, Child’s Play, Piranha, Inception, Ted, Evil Dead, The Hunger Games, The Cabin in the Woods, Insidious, 127 Hours and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo would look like. And really, who hasn’t??
