Each year nerds flock to San Diego for a mid-summers convention on all things nerd. You don’t have to be a nerd to enjoy the product.
The pictures of people in CosPlay (a.k.a adults playing dress up) are entertaining, but the best results are the trailers released for upcoming movies. Superhero movies are usually the big winners, but they’ll sometimes throw you for a loop. Get the popcorn ready and enjoy the best of what #SDCC16 had to offer.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Harry Potter comes to America with Eddie Redmayne as the protagonist. To land a guy who’s got back-to-back Best Actor noms is a pretty strong move. Also starring Colin Ferrell, you don’t need to be a Harry Potter nerd that visits Harry Potter World (a.k.a me) to enjoy this one.
Kong: Skull Island
I’m still pretty pissed they wouldn’t open this ride when I was down at Universal Studios, but I can get over that with some F Bombs from Samuel L. Jackson. Here’s to hoping Kong’s origin story is dedicated to the memory of Harambe.
Superheroes meets Inception. If Benedict Cumberbatch wasn’t involved, I wouldn’t be interested, but seeing Sherlock in a cape has piqued my interest.
I don’t think this is the first Justice League trailer, but it’s pretty neat nonetheless. I still haven’t gotten around to see Batman vs. Superman, but since I don’t see Superman in this trailer, I’m assuming he lost. Not a fan of Affleck’s raspy voice, but he’s got a Bruce Wayne that I can appreciate. Regardless, I have a feeling The Flash is going to steal the show.
Those who did see Batman vs. Superman told me she was better than either of the title characters. After watching this trailer, I understand why.
The LEGO Batman Movie
Winner, winner, chicken dinner. This movie is going to be excellent; satire grown-ups can enjoy with their kids. I dare you to watch this without smiling. Besides, if I was Batman, the password to the Batcave would definitely be, “Na na na na na na na BATMAN!”
