Top 10 Best Trailers from SDCC 2018

by Utkarsh Bansal

Once upon a time, the annual San Diego Comic Con was an event that celebrated comic books. Today, it still does that, but the focus has shifted to what most geeks really care about: movies and TV. And every year, the biggest moments in the convention are the reveals of new trailers that get us all buzzing. Now, we did get a trailer for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody right before the Con, and one for Alita: Battle Angel right after, but this post is about the 10 best trailers revealed during the Con itself.

10. Aquaman

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDkg3h8PCVU[/embed] After the lackluster financial performance of last year's Justice League, Warner Bros is hoping that James Wan's (The Conjuring, Furious 7) Aquaman can be the movie that rights the ship for their DC movies. Now I'm in the minority when I say I'm not a fan of Wan's work, and this trailer didn't particularly help with my excitement for this movie. So many one-liners are stuffed into Arthur Curry's (Jason Momoa, Game of Thrones) mouth, it feels less like a superhero movie and more like Fast & Furious. That said, what did impress me was the epic scope of Atlantis mixed with a personal core conflict. While I am looking forward to the movie, it will release on December 21, the same weekend as Mary Poppins and Welcome to Marwen, so it will have to do something really special in order to stand out.

9. Star Wars: The Clone Wars

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI7WyhWZkzk[/embed] The beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars ended years ago without being able to wrap up its plot, leaving many fans dissatisfied. Now, to the delight of many, the series will get the conclusion fans have been clamouring for, and this trailer gives a good feeling for what it will look like. While I appreciate the rousing music and was impressed by the opening shot with the row of Stormtrooper helmets, the reason the trailer places this low on the list is that just like the previous seasons, the art style and the animation simply do not look very good.

8. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvFybpmyB9E[/embed] When I saw David Yates's 2016 movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, my reaction was much the same as my reaction to this trailer: it's good, I just wish it was great. The movie managed to recreate the awe and wonder we associate with the magical world, but fell short when it came to the lead characters played by Eddie Redmayne and crew. Newt Scamander and his three friends are simply not as interesting to follow as Harry, Ron and Hermione were, and that's the soul of the world Rowling has created. Fortunately, the sequel has two advantages. First, we see Newt's time at Hogwarts, which led to the best moments in the trailer. And second, we have here two characters far more interesting than any of the leads, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore and the controversial Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Grindelwald. While I don't expect much depth from the moral conflict of "should muggles be ruled over by wizards and witches?", I do expect depth in the characterisation of Dumbledore and his relationship with Grindelwald.

7. Disenchantment

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp_RnJcb8Ig[/embed] Matt Groening, beloved creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, returns with his third satirical animated comedy, Disenchanted. The Netflix series follows a princess who, just like Princess Merida in Brave, chooses to escape the plan society has for her, and goes off an a fantastical adventure with her magical companions. I honestly don't have much to say about this trailer. This is a comedy, its purpose is to make me laugh: the trailer made me laugh. The first 10 episodes will drop on Netflix on August 17, and I will be there to watch them.

6. Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Call yourself a movie buff? Test your moviebuff-ness - Spotflik Hollywood Movie Trivia Quiz & Trailers


Gareth Edwards's 2014 monster movie Godzilla was not received well, and for good reason. While the scenes featuring the titular creature were appropriately epic, far too much time was spent with an uninteresting human lead played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The sequel, directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat), seems to realise this, as the focus seems to be shifted to the monsters themselves. The human characters, played by Millie Bobby Brown, Sally Hawkins and Vera Farmiga seem a tad more interesting than last time, but who cares when you've got Godzilla encountering the three-headed dragon Ghidorah? I particularly loved how the trailer balanced the terror of these monsters with their beauty and their majesty. Done right, this could be something special. But even otherwise, it'll at least be a fun kaiju movie.

5. Iron Fist

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMtrmDhI1LQ This very short teaser impresses the hell out of me. Everything wrong with season 1 seems to have been fixed, and this looks like the Iron Fist we've always wanted to see. During the events of The Defenders, Danny grew as a person through his interactions with Matt Murdock, and when he showed up in one episode of Luke Cage season 2, people loved this mature version of him. This teaser, in addition to having terrific action, shows us that improved Danny, a street level hero committed to protecting Hell's Kitchen.

4. Shazam!

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go6GEIrcvFY[/embed] This trailer is absolutely delightful. Not only is it great to see a kid who fights bullies rewarded with superpowers, there's something very exciting about the idea of teaming up a superhero with a kid who loves superheroes. Zachary Levi is charming as hell in his portrayal of a child in the body of an adult, and his banter with his best friend is endearing. I have little hope for Aquaman, but this really could turn the tides for DC, especially since it's followed by two movies that both also look like they could be good, Wonder Woman 1984 and Joker.

3. Young Justice: Outsiders

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4G5ID_3K6U[/embed] Like The Clone Wars, Young Justice is another beloved animated series that ended way too soon. It left us fans with a cliffhanger that was frustrating because the show had been going so well! Clearly, I'm very invested in this story, and might not be completely unbiased in evaluating the trailer, but to me it represented the best of what I love about the first two seasons, the smooth animation and complex relationships. This is easily my most anticipated TV series of 2018, and the trailer lived up to the hype.

2. Glass

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95ghQs5AmNk[/embed]

I had no idea why I was so excited for Glass. I thought Unbreakable was good, Split was better, but I didn't exactly fall in love with either film. This trailer made it clear: I'm excited for Glass because of the potential for greatness, not the likelihood of it. There's already so much to explore in the interaction between a super-strong guy, a super-smart guy, and, well, whatever James McAvoy is, and the addition of Sarah Paulson just makes it more interesting. The trailer knew to tease just the right questions, like what is Anya Taylor-Joy saying to James McAvoy and why? If done right, this will complete M. Night Shyamalan's resurgence.

1. The Dragon Prince

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HWcff0YEPM Look, Avatar: The Last Airbender is not just the greatest animated series I have ever seen, it's one of my favourite TV shows ever. The Dragon Prince, the new Netflix series from Aaron Ehasz, who was the head writer on Avatar: The Last Airbender, looks like it has all the elements that made it a great story. It's an epic fantasy with humour, action and magic, and some of the shots in the trailer are truly breathtaking, especially the dragon at the end. Moreover, the medieval setting looks good too, and opens up the potential for complex political storylines. Most importantly, though, I just can't wait to get lost in the vast fantasy world and learn the rules for how magic works here. So what about you? Which trailers were your favourite? Which movies and series are you most excited for?

Bumblebee Official Teaser Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

Doesn't matter how sick and tired you are of Transformers movies, Bumblebee looks like a legitimately good movie. I'm serious! I was expecting something good out of Travis Knight, the director of Kubo and the Two Strings, but this still managed to surprise me by feeling less Transformers and more Herbie for a large portion of it. When it does become the action movie we know it is, it boasts cleaner action and better designs than what we have seen from Michael Bay. Could this be the start of a new era of Transformers movies?

White Boy Rick Official Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

It has been a while since I've been able to root for, and then love, a live action Matthew McConnaughey movie. Hasn't happened since Interstellar, in fact. This one, from acclaimed director Yann Demange, looks riveting, with a trailer that shows an insane true story and blends heartfelt character interaction with thrilling music and consistent humour. Richie Meritt, who plays the titular Rick, looks like a younger Ansel Elgort, and seems to be just as good an actor.

Suspiria Teaser Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

For anyone who loved Call Me By Your Name as much as I did, it is exciting to already get to see the teaser for Luca Guadagnino's next project, a remake of the horror classic Suspiria. Yes, horror remakes do not have a great track record, but when you have this talented a director as well as Tilda Swinton at her creepiest, you have to give this one the benefit of the doubt. Like any good teaser, this didn't reveal any of the plot, and much of the tone. And I like this tone. If the final product is able to sustain this much tension, this could be a continuation of the ongoing resurgence of the horror genre (10 Cloverfield Lane, Get Out, A Quiet Place, Hereditary etc.)

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 Official Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

  Rich Moore's first Wreck-It Ralph is one of the finest movies in the current Disney animation renaissance. He further cemented his place among the great animation directors working today with 2016's Zootopia. This long-awaited sequel, which brings Ralph and Vanellope to the internet, initially looks like a somewhat better version of The Emoji Movie from the first half of this trailer, with easy gags about specific popular websites. But once they enter what is essentially an online version of Disneyland, this becomes absolutely hilarious, with self-aware gags on how Disney princesses are perceived, and how things become a "thing" on the internet. I have faith in Moore, and even if this sequel doesn't live up to the original, I expect a clever, engaging adventure. Ralph will break the internet on November 21.

Widows Official Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

  The director of 12 Years a Slave. The writer of Gone Girl. Starring Viola Davis. And the premise of four widows taking up the heist left unfinished by their husbands. This trailer delivers on the hype that the above description entails. While there will, of course, be some action in the film, what the trailer shows us is a thoughtful, emotional drama about people. And it certainly helps that these people are played by an all-star cast of awards-worthy actors. I'm calling it: this will end up as one of the best movies of the year.

You Were Never Really Here Preview

by Sonika Sharma

Lynne Ramsay's “You were never really here” seems like a typical action sequence within a very unique suspense setting. It’s a simple enough story of a brutal contract killer, hired by a powerful senator to rescue his daughter without making much noise about it. But the trailer promises that you are in for much more. It doesn’t give away any detail but just leaves you with a skin prickling feeling. I really do wonder if the movie would keep chasing this eerie feel or actually break out to give something new in an overused genre, though just as heart racing and nail biting. you were never really here It appears to be a movie where you go in not assuming much, but when you walk out, you are either in a daze or complete unimpressed, there seems no in-between.

Hotel Artemis Red Band Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

  Hotel Artemis is an action thriller comedy set in a dystopian future LA that start Jodie Foster, Sterling K Brown and Jeff Goldblum among others. This new trailer didn't get me as excited for the movie as the last one, but that's probably just because of the novelty of the concept. What I did love about it, though, was every moment with Jodie Foster as The Nurse. She has elements of your typical badass boss, but this trailer presents her as much more human, and much funnier, and that's what I want from this movie, not just another Hotel Continental from John Wick. Hotel Artemis comes out in theatres June 8.

Wildlife – Official Teaser

by Utkarsh Bansal

  If you knew nothing about Wildlife going into this teaser, you'll leave still knowing almost nothing, which in my opinion is how teasers should be. And once you read the premise given in the video description, you realise that's not the selling point for this movie anyway. I'll watch Wildlife because it stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, I'll watch it because it's the directorial debut of Paul Dano, and I'll watch it because it has got absolutely amazing reviews out of film festivals. Wildlife comes out in theatres October 19, 2018.

Mowgli – Official 1st Trailer

by Utkarsh Bansal

Mowgli has always been an exciting project. Directed by Andy Serkis, it's sure to have breathtaking visual effects (the CGI in the trailer, especially for Kaa, felt a little off, but rest assured itlit be fixed by the time of release). It's also not beholden to the animated movie, leaving it free to explore darker territory from the source material itself. And holy crap the voice cast! Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Naomie Harris as Nisha and Andy Serkis himself as Baloo! The trailer didn't do much to increase my anticipation level, but it did confirm the factors I was already excited about. The only reason to doubt this film at this point is the fact that this is only Serkis' second movie as director, and his first, Breathe, did not get a great reception, so we have nothing to convince us of his storytelling capabilities. (Also, is Cumberbatch reusing his Smaug voice?)
