It’s that time of year where I wish I could teleport to San Diego for the biggest PR stunt of the year. San Diego Comic-Con is the ultimate playground for comic book fans, but has since become the stoming ground for a lot of new film and TV shows. With that, fans are treated to a frenzy of new announcements to get us excited for the coming years line up. Along with these announcements come the trailers to heighten the anticipation. This summary post will be split into two halves, and here is part 1 of the best trailers at San Diego’s Comic-Con 2019.
His Dark Materials
How epic does His Dark Materials look? From the all-star cast to the stellar visuals, I gave a feeling that this show is going to take the world by storm. It has an adventure, intrigue, deception, and everything in between.
Top Gun: Maverick
Tom Cruise embodies every action trope there is. I can’t say I remember much about the original franchise, but Maverick will likely satisfy long-time fans of the franchise while also introducing a new generation to this Top Gun universe.
The more I watch this preview, the more excited I get about the show. Watchmen has an interesting premise and I love the grittiness of it. I’m not familiar with the source material of the Watchmen, but I can definitely get behind this adaptation.
Preacher (Season 4)
Most of you know I have a soft spot for weird and wonderful TV shows, and Preacher is right up there with the best of them. There’s such a great mix of quirky characters and it’s brilliant to watch the dynamic between them. I have no idea how this final season will end, but I can’t wait to follow the ride.
I love a good crime thriller and 21 Bridges has a lot of potential. Chadwich Boseman has already solidified his presence as a lead actor and with an intriguing plot, I think this film could be a big hit. The only danger is if it relies too much on the action instead of developing a consistent and compelling plot.
The Walking Dead (Season 10)
Technically, it’s not my fault that I’m still three seasons behind on this show because the family tradition means we all watch it together, but trying to get ahold of my brother is not the easiest task some nights. Also, while we’re slowly making our way through season 7, it feels like the show has lost its momentum. However, season 10 looks awesome and it looks like this new threat is a legitimate foe for our characters.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
I’m still undecided about this show, but what I love about this featurette is the focus on the artistry of the show. What these guys have been able to create is phenomenal and to see the intricate designs from their creation to then see them in the final product is incredible. I have no doubts that visually and artistically this show will deliver.
Hands down the best trailer I’ve seen so far. Again, I am not familiar with the source material for the Witcher, but the teaser trailer makes a case for this show to be the next fantasy epic and I cannot wait to explore this universe.
