Trailer Dump: Dark Phoenix, Robin Hood & Creed II
We have a load of great new trailers to dump on you today, from the new X-Men movie to Netflix’s disturbing Apostle. So if you’ve been waiting to catch up on the latest trailers, have no fear. For we are here. Geekvault’s trailer dump. So just sit back, relax and enjoy. There’s a lot here to enjoy, so get stuck in. Tell us in the comments which one was your favourite.
This has been my favourite trailer for the new Robin Hood film yet. The aesthetic is really enjoyable, with that modern medieval twist, like A Knight’s Tale or King Arthur. Let’s hope it’s more like the former than the latter, which became probably the worst Guy Ritchie film. Unfortunately the best I can say about this film at the moment is about the aesthetic, and that it looks like a bit of fun. Oh well, will you be watching this?
The first trailer for the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix has surfaced and it looks pretty good. Jean Grey is struggling to contain the power of the titular Dark Phoenix power and the team must help save her from doing something she regrets. McAvoy and Fassbender are back as Xavier and Magneto for possibly the last time. Though we wished they had greyed up Magnetos hair a bit. We’ve enjoyed most if not all X-Men films thus far, hopefully this will make up for Last Stand.
This looks like it may be a surprise hit, with powerful performances that are already conveyed through this short trailer. Ben Foster is set up and Elle Fanning is caught right in the middle of it, forcing them to both go on the run with twists and turns in the middle. This is one we will definitely be checking out.
Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, with Sylvetser Stallone in tow returning as Rocky. For a continuation in what has become a truly iconic franchise. This time it’s about more than just honour, it’s revenge. As Creed fights to finally overcome the death of his father. Dolph Lundgren returns as Ivan Drago with his son Victor, played by Florian Munteanu, who looks absolutely beastly. We can’t wait to watch this one.
Daredevil Season Three
This small teaser trailer for the return of Daredevil in season three has Wilson Fisk, Kingpin appear in his iconic white suit. Though no purple cravats just yet. Fans of the new Spider-Man PS4 game may even think it’s reminiscent of Mr. Negative. We also see the symbolic death of Matt Murdock, as he struggles to deal with a dual identity and is overcome by the Daredevil. Let’s hope this is as good as if not even better than season 2.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
With each trailer we get more and more excited for the Fantastic Beasts sequel. The first was a surprisingly great addition to the Harry Potter lore and this next one looks even better. Beware of spoilers in this trailer though as we finally learn the identity of the girl who has been running around with Ezra Miller’s Credence. Can’t wait to see Jude Law as a young Dumbledore too. We’re already booking tickets. Don’t forget to buy your wizarding supplies here.
When they announced that there would be a new Transformers spinoff about the origins of Bumblebee, everyone asked who wants this? But it maybe actually looks, kind of, good? At least the best in a while, which wouldn’t certainly be hard to achieve. This in part stems from the fact that these Transformers actually look like transformers, with their blocky colourful bodies. Let’s just hope you’ll be able to see what’s happening in the fight scenes too.
The first trailer for Captain Marvel was released and it looks epic. With the success of this film combined with Wonder Woman’s we will hopefully have an influx of new super-heroine films. This looks like it will be an above average Marvel movie. Do you think this is the start of a secret invasion? Has Nick Fury been a Skrull all along? Will Captain Marvel be a Skrull? Either way who doesn’t want to see an old lady get punched? You can even get your own Marvel gear here.
This is one nightmarish looking movie, and we appreciate Netflix for the broad scope they’re employing. From Gareth Evans who brought the world two excellent movies of The Raid, comes something far different. It looks like the Wicker Man jacked up on heroin, meets the demon spawn of Saw and Silent Hill. We can’t wait to see how twisted this turns out.
