A second trailer for Fantastic Beasts was released narrated by Colin Farrell.
In the trailer we see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arriving in New York while the narrator explains how he was expelled from Hogwarts, with just one teacher opposing his expulsion. Albus Dumbledore.
Set in (magical) New York in the twenties, Fantastic Beasts seems like a fantastic movie that will appeal more to grown ups instead of children, or at least the grown ups will also be able to relate to the movie, unlike with the Harry Potter films.
Based on the book (written by J.K. Rowling) that Harry reads (in his own film series), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first part of a planned trilogy.
The first teaser trailer for Doctor Strange and a gallery of HD screencaps.
Marvel released the first teaser trailer for Doctor Strange which is slated to premere in November this year.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character, in the teaser we are partially introduced with the Dr. Stephen Strange. While the comic book fans are certainly very well educated on this matter, the rest of the Marvel fandom gets a glimpse of the Ancient One, who plays a major role in the “creation” of Doctor Strange.
For a teaser the trailer does seem a bit long. It is cool that the Ancient One is a woman, played by Tilda Swinton, in contrast of the comic books.
As one who has never read the comic books, everything looks very oriental and mystical. Also, there were no scenes with Doctor Strange wearing his cape and signature outfit, like in the poster below.
Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson. Premieres November 4th, 2016.
Today Disney released the first teaser trailer for this year’s Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Even though a bit longer than the usual teasers, the trailer isn’t showing much more of the plot line than we already know. Instead we get introduced to the character Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones. After watching the trailer you will get an instant Han Solo vibe of of the character, being a young criminal and all.
To be honest the trailer is much more exciting than the trailers for Episode VII. For those of you who don’t know the story, the film takes place between Revenge of the Sith and New Hope, dealing with stealing the plans for building the first Death Star which was destroyed in New Hope. Jyn Erso as an experienced thief and criminal (also rebel) will be in charge of this task.
Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker have a prominent part in the teaser, but their characters are unknown at this point.
There are at least two bad guys in the teaser and two or three characters for which is not quite clear which side they serve.
