San Diego Comic Con took place at the weekend, a fixture that has quickly grown from its comic convention roots to become one of the key dates in the pop culture calendar.
Over the course of a couple of days, TV and movie companies drop so many trailers it can be easy to miss some of them. But never fear: we’ve got you. Here’s a roundup of some of the most intriguing movie and TV trailers that debuted over the weekend.
We’ve already seen one trailer for the next big Marvel movie due out this fall (November 4), starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a doctor who discovers he’s got special powers. This new one gives us a proper look at Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen too.
This X-Men spinoff stars clumsy car driver Dan Stevens as David Haller, the mutant son of Professor X who’s struggled all his life with what he thinks is mental illness. Given the green light in spring, this is the first we’ve seen of the TV show due to air on FX in 2017.
After us: Wonder Woman! In your satin tights! Fighting for your rights! Gal Gadot stars in this kickass standalone from the DC universe opening in theaters June 2, 2017. We already knew it was set 100 years before the events of Batman vs Superman, but now we know it’s set during the First World War. Stay tuned for Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and Shaun of the Dead star Lucy Davis too.
Magic runs riot in the latest trailer from the highly anticipated Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (due in theaters November 18). After two minutes of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) trying to catch these critters in what is basically an Edwardian version of Pokémon GO, you might find yourself asking, Harry who?.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
The legend of King Arthur gets the Guy Ritchie treatment, starring Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam as Arthur, Jude Law as his dastardly uncle Vortigern, and Eric Bana as his father. Oh, and did we mention David Beckham makes an appearance too? It opens February 17, 2017.
Kong: Skull Island
We gave Tom Hiddleston one last chance after he broke our hearts with Tay-Tay, and by the looks of this trailer, we were right to. That is one big monkey. Also starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Goodman, Kong: Skull Island opens March 2017.
Legends of Tomorrow season 2
Season two of this time-travelling show premieres October 13 on The CW, and this time their foes are a bunch of super-villains so lethal they’ve been dubbed the “Legion of Doom”.
The LEGO Batman Movie
We’ve already seen a couple of teasersof this upcoming standalone LEGO movie featuring the voices of Will Arnett and Ralph Fiennes, but this new trailer focuses on Robin played by Michael Cera, and we even get a brief glimpse of Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) and the Joker (Zach Galifianakis). There’s no sign of Mariah Carey as Gotham’s mayor yet though…
Season seven of the zombie thriller will (hopefully) reveal who new baddie Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) killed, and here’s its trailer. It starts airing on AMC October 23.
This trailer was one of Comic Con’s biggest surprises. Punters turning up to watch a trailer for new film The Woods found out it was, in true “found footage” horror movie form, the official sequel to 1999 horror classic The Blair Witch Project. And, in true horror movie form, it follows James Donahue, brother of Heather Donahue from the original film, who sets out with friends into the Maryland forest to learn the truth about his sister’s disappearance. Opening September 16.
