I don't understand how four massive fuckoff creatures fighting will save the earth, but I suppose plots in monster flicks are like plots in porn - you only need enough of it to give the action a vague sense of context and justification. Of course, Godzilla's not about to mack on his hot stepmother, so I know which one I'm all about. :datass:

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

Is that the one that's rumoured to be another Cloverfield Universe film?

Yeh it follows on from the Netflix movie where the timeline gets strawberry floated up


Pretty sure it was scrapped as the next film in the Cloverfield universe and is it's own movie and the next movie will be a direct sequel to Cloverfield.

Basically looks like Wolfenstein without a bit of B.J.

Shazam is the only one I’m potentially interested in out of these. Hopefully it has nothing to do with the current DC verse and will spark the potential black Adam film with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

I’m confused by the Godzilla trailer. Hopefully more info on it at a later date will give me a clue as to whether I want to see it or not.

I couldn’t care less for Aquaman at the moment.

Im betting that the 4 of them fighting wont save the world at all and that chick has some other motive, seems to be hinted at in the trailer too. Im not pushed either looks, looks pretty great, cant wait for it.

That Aquaman trailer. :dread:

You know a movie is going to be bad when you can't even make it through the two minute trailer.

Shazam looks like a pretty straight adaptation of Geoff Johns' New 52 Shazam origin story. Smart move as that was a great book.

Assuming Black Adam's not in it though as I can't imagine they'd not put The Rock in the trailer if he was.

That new Godzilla looks immense, aside from the bits with all the people in it obviously.

Shazam does look quite fun. Agreed on the "It kinda reminds me of Big".

Little bit confusing having Captain Marvel (Shazam) movie and Avengers 4 movie with another Captain Marvel / Ms Marvel both out around the same time.

HUM.

It's too clean. The Scrapyard looks like Disneyland. Even in the quick shots some of the real-face-CGI-body effects look bad. But the action sequences look good and I love the idea of Waltz as Daisuke.

But that face. Urgh. It's a decision that could could doom the movie from the start: it looks so, so bad. Nothing in the books suggests Alita looks any different from a normal human (apart from maybe her lips, if I remember correctly) and the idea to turn her into a CGI waifu monstrosity is just a complete non-starter for me. Seriously, urgh.

EDIT: Reminds me of gooseberry fool like this:

Aquaman gives me Man of Steel vibes in terms of the set-up; two beings from another world - Aquaman/Arthur Curry whose been raised on the surface and his half-brother, King Orm, declaring war upon that world - clashing over their personal ideals, much like Kal El and General Zod before them. It looks pretty great visually too.

Hands down the best trailer to come out of Comic Con this year.

This is the money shot right here:

Disappointed that that wasn’t a video of Ghostbusters with Seinfeld sound effects and canned laughter, 3/10.
