Such a full weekend and tons of new content released this year in San Diego. Here are my thoughts on it all!
Kong: Skull Island
If you were to tell me that there was a film coming out starring Tom Hddleston, Brie Larson, Sam L. Jackson and John Goodman that’s all I need to know. I’m buying a ticket. I love King Kong movies and I love this trailer everything about it particularly the color palette looks very Jurassic Park-ish. Quite possibly my favorite trailer from the entire convention.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
I really like this trailer as well. I think Eddie Redmayne is going to be great as Newt. If you like Harry Potter in any sense and you don’t want to see this movie, you should re-examine your fandom
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
This trailer looked completely amazing and is apparently a play on the classic sword from stone story. I really Guy Richie’s movies even though they are not for everyone
The Lego Batman Movie
I don’t understand why I’m so interested in this but I will see it for sure. I believe this to be is supposed to be DC’s Deadpool. Also Will Arnet has a perfect voice for Batman
Ah the Blair Witch………. LET THE RECORD SHOW THAT I AM NOT A FAN OF THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. I consider it to be one of the most overrated films of all time and I’ve wrote countless material about my problems with it. That being said with as many times as I’ve seen the original, I will see this one. It looks actually half decent, now lets hope it actually is. I had a serious frown when I first heard the announcement though that I will say.
Ah some good old Marvel news my favorite. I’m expecting this movie to be quite trippy and I’m curious to see how they pull it off. I’m excited and I think Benedict Cumberbatch is going to kill it. And I always love Rachel McAdams. That wifi line was pure gold as well.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.
I wasn’t lucky enough to go to SDCC so I obviously haven’t seen the footage. Most people are citing it as “weird and hilarious.” However we do now know that Sylvester Stallone is in the film and Kurt Russell will be playing Star Lords dad. Great casting choice. We also know that baby Groot is now little kid Groot, I assume Funko is rubbing their hands together waiting to profit off that. I will be eagerly awaiting the footage and harassing James on twitter until it is released.
Brie Larson has been cast as Captain Marvel and I’m very excited about it. That is all.
The first Wonder Woman trailer is here and it looks fantastic. I love Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and I really like the potential of this movie. It doesn’t look as doom and gloom as the other DC films in the new universe. Very excited to watch this, they had me at the gold whip to be honest.
Quite possibly the biggest surprise of the convention was that we already have a full fledged trailer for the Justice League. First off Aquaman looks fantastic they made him much more rough than in the comics. I loved the scene between the Flash and Batman. What blew my mind is that there was more jokes in this 2 minute trailer than in the two hour movie that was Batman V Superman. It seems that DC took those complaints to heart. If they make these movies fun they will have a much better product in my opinion. DC has my attention and I’m intrigued to catch Suicide Squad (which I didn’t watch the trailer for because we are to close now) and the rest of these next year.
