Hacksaw Ridge trailer finally previews Mel Gibson’s true story World War II movie

First Hacksaw Ridge trailer builds slowly then hits you in the heart

The first trailer for Hacksaw Ridge, the highly anticipated Mel Gibson-directed World War II drama, is finally here. Gibson, while seemingly always controversial, can do no wrong as a director in my mind, and this movie looks to be a heartfelt character study of one soldier’s struggle to save as many men as he can rather than kill them during the war. I don’t know what’s more inspiring, the return of a director who many thought would never make it back or the true story of Desmond Doss brought to the big screen. Both are worth getting excited over, and Hacksaw Ridge is already generating hushed whispers regarding Oscar potential.

Watch the trailer for Hacksaw Ridge, read a plot synopsis, read an even more inspiring/most likely spoiler-filled Medal of Honor citation for Desmond Doss, and check out the first poster for the movie after the jump.

Let’s just call the JUSTICE LEAGUE footage from Comic-Con the movie’s first trailer

Justice League Comic-Con trailer has Bruce Wayne assembling the team

“Footage” from DC’s upcoming Justice League movie debuted at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but we might as well call the video the trailer it is. The beats are there, with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne assembling his team one-by-one, and we even get a nice ensemble shot of the entire Justice League together. So, it’s a trailer, and it’s worth watching if you’re a fan of what the folks over at DC are trying to do with their cinematic superhero universe. It’s hard not to be at least curious, and it looks like everyone involved is committed to making this (the MCU-sized mashup/solo movie franchise) happen. Here’s hoping Justice League comes together stronger and more promising than Batman v Superman did.

Watch the first extended footage/teaser trailer for Justice League after the jump.

Second Doctor Strange trailer continues to tease a topsy-turvy world

Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie now has a second trailer to fill in more of the gaps and give us a better glimpse of the world we’ll be diving into. It’s a wild one, with plenty of Inception-style landscape bending, and the movie looks intriguing. Coming out of Comic-Con amid plenty of recognizable properties, Doctor Strange is one of Marvel’s upcoming movies that has the potential to open up a new, mythical chapter in the universe. Plus, Benedict Cumberbatch looks pretty great as the cape-wearing, magic-wielding Steven Strange.

Comic-Con Kong: Skull Island trailer previews Kong’s return to theaters

Attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, as well as at-home film fans, may be pre-occupied with DC/Marvel reveals, but between the cracks comes the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island. The re-imagining/reboot is packed with big names filling in shoes of familiar archetypes, but this time around Kong himself is much, much bigger than we’ve seen before. The trailer gives us quick glimpses of the enormous ape, as well as some nice shots of the lost world landscape our protagonist adventurers will be traversing, and the movie looks good so far. The cast is strong, the stage is set, and from what I hear this is the necessary second piece for the one-two punch of a Godzilla vs. King Kong movie planned for 2020. Crazy, right?

Watch the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island, read the promotional synopsis, and check out the first poster for the movie after the jump.

Vasquez and the Workaholics boys team up for TMNT Comic-Con cartoon

While the big studios were busy premiering some highly anticipated movie trailers, Nickelodeon may have dropped the coolest thing at San Diego Comic-Con, depending on your taste. Jhonen Vasquez (creator of Invader Zim) and the boys from Workaholics came together for a cartoon short film featuring everyone’s favorite heroes in a half shell, and the short is pretty great! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the animation style of Invader Zim and voiced by the Workaholics guys? Yeah, you read that right. Let’s hope this short film isn’t just a one-off, and that Vasquez has made peace with Nickelodeon and the pairing will continue to make great art together.

Watch the Jhonen Vasquez-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles short “Don vs. Raph” after the jump.
