Every movie on the theatrical release slate for Warner Bros. in 2021 is getting a simultaneous release on HBO Max, and movie fans have enjoyed the run of new films so far. Mortal Kombat is next up in April, followed by a new thriller called Those Who Wish Me Dead in May. Unlike Mortal Kombat and Godzilla vs. Kong, Those Who Wish Me Dead isn't part of a larger IP, but it does have some serious talent both in front of and behind the camera.
Angelina Jolie stars in Those Who Wish Me Dead, the newest film from Taylor Sheridan. On Wednesday morning, Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the new movie, which follows a smoke jumper who discovers a young boy on the run from some dangerous assassins.
