Harrison Ford is awesome.
That pitch-perfect response by Mr. Ford was delivered this past weekend at Comic Con 2017 in San Diego, California. When arguably the greatest action movie star in cinematic history decides to return to his iconic characters 20-30 years later (well, 32 for Star Wars), it’s a blessing for himself and fans alike. Harrison Ford was great in The Force Awakens and looks fit and ready for a brutal fight in Blade Runner 2049.
And, if rumors are true, fans will jump for joy when the next Indiana Jones movie returns to theaters with Mr. Ford and an indie film director by the name of Steven Spielberg in just a few years time.
In the spirit of this blog post, we should ask ourselves “WWHFS?”
Translation: What Would Harrison Ford Say?
Answer: Whatever it is, you can bet your ass it’ll be awesome.
Like his movies.
And you thought “May the Fourth Be With You” was a big deal…
The annual gathering known as Comic Con occurred this past weekend and, once again, delivered to its fans (there in attendance and those watching online) an impressive pop-culture parade of entertaining celebrity interviews, immersive movie and television show experiences and premieres of new trailers for highly-anticipated films.
Steven Spielberg’s next film–
Okay, now that I have your full attention, please enjoy one of those aforementioned exclusive first-look move trailers that debuted this past Saturday at Comic Con in San Diego.
Columbus, OH-IO will be the cinematic pop-culture capital of the world next year!
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
P.S. Yes, these movies about superheroes matter.
Cowboys use a lasso, but not like this…
Wonder Woman has never hit the silver screen before as the lead character. Actress Gal Gadot’s superhero of power, grace, wisdom and wonder was introduced (in spectacular fashion) in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. In 2017, the world will finally be given the complete cinematic treatment to the female equivalent to Superman.
The first trailer, as seen above, fittingly premiered at Comic-Con this past Saturday afternoon. A full trailer and not a teaser trailer. That’s not nothing, ladies and gentlemen. Although, considering the extensive presence of Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice, the secret was effectively out of the bag from a few months ago. And understanding the nature of trailers and the tightly choreographed 2-3 minute snapshot for any given film, the verdict for Wonder Woman won’t be determined by Juror #6 (shout-out to last Friday’s post) and the public until the credits roll in the summer of next year. However, upon first glance, people will be excited for this movie.
Oh, and this other small, independent film of a similar theme also released its first full trailer at this year’s Comic-Con.
One thing’s for certain: Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman proves there’s some justice in this world.
Have an Awesome Week!
Forget Floyd Mayweather, Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao, Batman v. Superman is the ultimate fight.
Comic-Con in San Diego is the premier annual gathering of all things comic books, superheroes and fantasy adventures. Fans dress up in costumes with striking detail (completely normal) and is the destination for all things nerd. Movie stars will surprise fans, sometimes in full costume. In 2011, Andrew Garfield, dressed in a costume store Spider-Man outfit, surprised the crowd with a heartfelt thank you to the fans before he introduced his movie’s panel.
In recent years, the teams behind blockbuster movies within this popular, ever-growing genre have used this venue as a launching pad for their projects. Watching and participating in exclusive panels with the stars and directors of these films are the hottest tickets, which includes the great likelihood of witnessing first-looks and trailers before everybody else.
The new trailer is here, the new Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is here.
Have a Wonderful Week!
