To show how big of a fan or nerd that I am, It’s always been a goal and dream of mine to travel out to San Diego and attend the biggest convention is all the land…COMIC-CON!!
Not only is it the place for fans to dress up like their favorite fictional characters, meet new friends with similar likes in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Action genres, you can also meet your favorite stars. That’s right, stars from your favorite movies, TV series, and studios show up to show off never before seen footage from movies that are currently filming, are in pre-production, or that have been waiting to be announced. This all happens at Comic-Con.
This year, many movies scheduled to be released later this year premiered their first trailers to legions of their fans that packed the auditorium halls. Now that the craziness of Comic-Con has faded until next year’s festivities, I’m here to show you all the first trailers that premiered at the convention.
First: Mad Max: Fury Road. In this reboot, Tom Hardy takes on the role of Max, a man traveling the desert wasteland of the world where he meets Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman who wished to cross the desert to reach her childhood home, unaware of the dangers that lay hidden in the wasteland. Mad Max: Fury Road rages into theaters May 15, 2015
Next: Interstellar. Christopher Nolan already has people and fans of his previous work excited for this original Science Fiction film about a group of explorers that make use of a wormhole to expand space exploration and possibly save the Earth. This film stars Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Jessica Chastain. Interstellar voyages into theaters on November 7.
Coming Soon: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Nine years after the first movie, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller bring their neo-noir world back to the silver screen as the town’s most hard-boiled citizens go up against its more powerful and reviled inhabitants.
Next: The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. The final chapter of The Middle-Earth Saga is ready to be written. Picking up where The Desolation of Smaug left off, the company of Thorin Oakenshield reached The Lonely Mountain and confronted the dragon, Smaug but have set him free from Erebor. Now, all of Middle-Earth prepares to go to war to fight the dark forces that goes beyond the dragon. The epic finale to The Hobbit trilogy arrives December 17.
Finally: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I. After being rescued from the Quarter Quell, Katness Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is taken to the hidden District 13 and reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and The Capitol. The penultimate chapter of The Hunger Games Saga charges into theaters on November 21.
I hope you all enjoy these previews and they get you more prepared for these films as their release dates get closer! One day, I hope to report or update you all when I go to Comic-Con for the first time ever!
