One of the highlights of the annual San Diego Comic-Com International is the debut of the trailers of possibly every expected blockbuster movie premiering in the next 15 months. Here’s my Top 5 favourites…
1. Wonder Woman (Summer 2017)
The best thing in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is going to rule the superhero universe comes 2017 and we can’t wait. Having Chris Pine as eye candy doesn’t hurt either…
2. Suicide Squad (August 2016)
Actually there has been a lot of trailers already for this much-anticipated film about a group of super villainous misfits being rounded up for a do-or-die secret mission, but this one has “previously unseen footage” and a rather good haunting rendition The Bee Gees’ “I Started A Joke”.
3. The LEGO Batman Movie (February 2017)
Truth be told, I’m looking forward more to this angsty Batman than the one in Justice League! :p The scene-stealer in The Lego Movie gets his own movie and is still funny and wonderfully voiced by Will Arnett. Life doesn’t give you seat-belts, so hold on tight!
4. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (April 2017)
The Lord of the Rings meets The Real RockNRolla and from what we saw in the trailer, the long-awaited Guy Ritchie helmer looks mighty good. Jude Law especially looks dastardly handsome as the dastardly king who will do all he can to prevent Charlie Hunnam’s streetwise Arthur from taking back his birthright to the throne. In case you are wondering, the song you hear is The Wild Wild Berry, a British traditional as sung by English folk singer Sam Lee.
5. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (November 2016)
The magical world of J K Rowling continues in this Harry Potter-less movie version of her book about a magizoologist (played by the ever lovable Eddie Redmayne) who has to track down a number of magical creatures in 1926 New York City. Trailer looks fun and Redmayne can’t seem to be do anything wrong these days.
Kong: Skull Island (March 2017)
Seriously, I’m tired of seeing Samuel L Jackson in every blockbuster movie there is but then again, Kong appears to give a new take to the age old giant gorilla story and also it has Tom Hiddleston in it. Can’t be all bad…
