Black Panther trailer: Best Bits

Ordinarily there would be a warning of a trailer, a teaser for a teaser if you will. However lately Marvel have been subverting this stupidity, first with Thor: Ragnarok where the first look dropped without any prior knowledge and now, just this weekend, we got to see a glimpse of what Black Panther will look like. My god! What a trailer! It’s a very un-Marvel looking trailer with Ryan Coogler taking the directors seat.

We are taken on quite a journey, essentially on a tour of Wakanda. We had a very brief glimpse of it in Civl War where Bucky went back on ice and the Black Panther statue was revealed. The trailer has confirmed that this is a nation with vast wealth after seeing the city landscapes, it’s weapons and technology.

In the trailer we see a huge range of the cast which starts with Andy Serkis talking to Martin Freeman in an unknown location about the African nation. Then we see Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in a gun battle, showing his superb agility. These fight scenes are going to be something very different.

We then delve deep into Wakanda and see Michael B. Jordan training and battling against a tribe, with him is Daniel Kaluuya. It looks as of Jordan has been taken prisoner and Kaluuya is a guard however I’m just guessing!

The trailer shows what appears to be an internal uprising as well as forces coming into Wakanda to take over from T’Challa who has become King after his father’s death. Lupita Nyong’o, Forest Whitaker and Danai Gurira all make fleeting appearances however they will have much bigger roles than the trailer suggests.

Out in February 2018, Black Panther is the 18th MCU movie and it’s directed by Ryan Coogler.

Step into the spotlight.

Rogue One: A Star Wars story. Brand new trailer

During the Star Wars Celebration which took place in London last month, rumours were constantly flying around about Rogue One and a new trailer that was going to be shown. This never came to fruition however what we did see is a behind the scenes featurette which was entitled Celebration Reel. We saw some incredible landscape shots which showed that Cinematographer Greig Fraser has achieved something spectacular. We saw brand new characters, taking on the dark side whilst being shot at by Stromtroopers. We saw Gareth Edwards speaking of his excitement of working on a Star Wars movie. Plus plenty of fight scenes, explosion and members of the cast talking about their roles and the roles of this film in the Star Wars universe. Very exciting. Even if it did end on a weak “May the force be with us”. Sorry, but I just didn’t like how it was delivered.

Rogue One poster

Well, now I’m happy to report that we finally have a new Rogue One trailer and it’s all that you want from a Star Wars trailer. We see more of Felicity Jones and Forest Whitaker plus brief glimpses of Donnie Yen and Riz Ahmed. As well as more AT-ATs, a TIE fighter, blaster guns, more Stormtroopers and more footage of the Death Star. With a special guest right at the very end which is foreshadowed by the music right at the very start of the trailer, this is going to be one hell of a film, telling an incredible story which not too many people know.
