San Diego Comic-Con is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Day one of the 2019 edition saw the trailers of Top Gun 2, It Chapter 2 and more, making fans worldwide go crazy.
Here are my top picks from the lot.
1. Top Gun: Maverick
The much-awaited sequel to the 1986 Top Gun looks to be following close on the footsteps of the original. Above all, the stellar landscape shots, death-defying flying sequences, and Tom Cruise look to be in top form. Also, there’s John Hamm to look out for.
2. It Chapter Two
Pennywise the clown is back. And, he looks scarier than ever this time. Together, the kids from Stephen King’s fictional town Derry are (all grown up now) they take on the clown. Starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, and Isaiah Mustafa, the movie is set to release in September.
This trailer creeped me out, to be honest. In fact, most of the internet world seems to think so. Cats is an adaptation of the eponymous musical, which in turn, is an adaptation of the T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Frankly, The digital fur technology used on the human actors who playing the cats looks strange and hasn’t bode well with most viewers.
Charming or creepy? Watch and decide for yourself.
4. His Dark Materials
Adapted from the novel series of the same name, His Dark Materials has been in talks for a while now. The epic nature and the stunning graphics of this HBO show make it look a worthy successor for Game of Thrones.
5. Terminator: Dark Fate (special featurette)
Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor is one of the most iconic characters in the sci-fi/action movie world. Thus, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day star’s return in Terminator: Dark Fate is crucial. Also, do I need to say that Arnold Schwarzenegger is there too?
