The super bowl aired last Sunday and we got some pretty interesting trailers from it so here’s a breakdown of the most exciting ones.
Ghost in the Shell
The new live action adaptation of the famous manga Ghost in the Shell is announcing itself as one of the biggest movies of 2017. We get a 30 sec clip of the new movie starring Scarlet Johansson and I got to say the CGI looks impressive. Although this movie received a lot of criticism as to why the main character is played by a Caucasian actress (Scarlet Johansson) instead of an Asian actress, this doesn’t come in its way of make a huge buzz. The movie is coming out on March 29, 2017 and is expected to be a huge box office entrance.
We also got a 30 sec lip of the new X Men movie Logan. Although this is yet again another wolverine movie, the plot and the story that they are selling is much different. The movie seems to focus on Logan in a more intimate and personal way which is makes this movie that much more exciting. The release date is quite close with the international release on the 3rd of March.
In this short trailer the actual soundtrack is removed from the scenes and we only hear Amazing Grace with a lot of fighting scenes and new faces.
Guardian of the Galaxy Vol 2
By far the most exciting super hero movie of 2017, this sequel is already expected to be The Movie of the summer. This second trailer, although short, still gives us a lot of new content. First we get to see more of the monsters. We also get to see more of the new characters like Mantis and Nebula as well as the sovereigns who seem to be the ones who assigned this mission to our group of guardians. We also see a bit of fights scenes between Gamora and her sister Nebula which may present a big part of this movie. We also expect to see more of the relationship between Star-lord and his father Ego the Living Planet. The release date for The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is July 28th.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
We get a slightly longer trailer from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales starring Johnny Depp. The new trailer shows new faces with an overall impressive CGI. The release date is on May 26, 2017.
Stranger Things Season 2
We get a 30 sec trailer form Stranger Things packed with super exciting scenes. The trailer starts with an 80’s commercial for Eggo. We then hear someone calling for Eleven as she opens her eyes upside down with a bleeding nose. We also see the footage of Dustin, Mike, Will and Lucas dressed as the ghost busters for a Halloween school party. We later see a drawing of the upside down most probably drawn by Will. Later an interesting scene of Chief Hopper comes where he seems to be digging or hitting something with a shovel. We then see Will looking at outside the door as the sky turns red and we see a silhouette of spider-looking monster only really huge. We also get a date for the release of season 2: HALLOWEEN. This is later in the year than the previous season which only makes it harder to wait but I am indeed extremely excited for this release.
