One of the most well known and most famous Comic Con was held last week. San Diego Comic Con is known across the world as a Geek’s wet dream and one day I will hopefully get to attend. Comic-Con International: San Diego is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.
Unlike other, smaller comic cons (apart from New York and London) San Diego brings out the big guns in terms of actors, directors and the like. Everyone who is anyone is in attendance to of course promote their newest films and of course, if you attend San Diego Comic Con you would be one of the lucky people who gets to have a sneak peek!!
San Diego is known for holding panel discussions as well as exclusive trailers and insight to everyone’s favourite film franchises and television series. After San diego draws to a close the trailers are released to the rest of the world and this year the trailers did not disappoint! The Avengers Infinity Wars trailers gave me actual goosebumps!! I couldn’t really sit back and enjoy these trailers all to myself, especially if some of you haven’t seen any of them yet, so here are some of the film (and their amazing trailers) I cannot wait to come out soon!!
Thor 2: Ragnarok
Anything directed by Taika Waititi is going to get the thumbs by me and the fact he has stated that the film is 80% improvised has made me really really excited for this film!! The trailer has added to this excitement!! Chris Hemsworth looks absolutely amazing and if improvised throughout most of the film then he’s more talented than I thought. Cate Blanchett looks like a complete badass as Hela and the cinematography and CGI looks out of this world.(the horses looks insane!!!). When he jumps down from the lightning with his eyes glowing…absolute perfection!
Lego Ninjago Movie
Both the Lego Movie and the Batman Lego Movie were enjoyable for me. Both films were incredibly cute but very adult friendly as in I didn’t feel like I was watching a children’s movie. The idea of having a cat in the film is hilarious and the whole film looks silly and fun. I hope it lives up to it’s predecessors standards.
Stranger Things Series 2
Oh My Days!! Doesn’t the new series look incredible?! They’ve gone for a much darker theme this time round and I cannot wait to see the inside out!!! The trailer gives nothing away and I honestly cannot predict how this series is going to go down. It also answers none of the questions the first series left but I’m pretty sure we’re going to get all the answers!! Whoever chose thriller as the music for this trailer was on fire that day!!
The music they used drew me to the trailer, and the fact its created and stars Seth Macfarlane just seals the deal. I love all his work so I have high expectations for it. I hope it’s going to be as funny and as action packed as the trailer makes it out to be. The costumes and characters look amazing too.
Kingsman: Golden Circle
I decided to save the best till last!! I loved loved LOVED Kingsman when it first came out (that church scene is something I’ll never forget. There is a scene in the trailer that involves a car door and it leaves me stunned, every time. It looks like we’re going to have twice as many kick ass fight scenes and a copious amount of Taron Egerton in a dashing suit…can’t really ask more of a film can I?!
Which one are you looking forward to seeing? Comment below!!
