The huge entity that is San Diego Comic-Con came and went like a flash but not before dropping several movie trailers worth talking about. Superheroes and monsters made up the bulk of the conversation. Some of them were pretty exciting, one specific one not so much. Below are the biggest trailers from SDCC 2018. Give them a look and tell me what you think.
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”
This thing looks wild. It’s the third film in Warner Brothers’ MonsterVerse and a sequel to the 2014 Gareth Edwards film. With quick but stunning images of Mothra, Ghidorah, and the King himself, it looks to be a super ambitious undertaking. I can’t wait to see it.
I hope by now everyone has seen “Split” and the really cool curveball M. Night Shyamalan threw at us. I never saw it coming. Now we get our first look at “Glass”, the crazy, unexpected result and it looks great. Fingers crossed that M. Knight can pull this off.
Very Interested, Want To See More
Warner Brothers and DC really need this one to work. So far I’m onboard. Jason Momoa has a big, beefy charm and it goes a long way in selling the “Aquaman” trailer. The world itself looks intriguing and the story has genuine potential. Lots of CGI and armored sharks have me slightly concerned, but so far so good.
The rumblings of a “Shazam!” movie have been around for a while and we finally got a glimpse. It looks like they are all-in on making this a goofy spoof which doesn’t bode well for fans of the character’s long history. That aside, comedy can work. But that brings up a second problem – what we see isn’t that funny. Hopefully a second trailer can leave a better impression.
