One of, if not the biggest weekend of the year is officially underway, San Diego Comic-Con. And while we’re all waiting to see what kind of juicy footage will be released later today, the rest of the Con is chugging along and so far, we’ve gotten some great stuff. Look out the next couple days as we cover as much as we possibly can coming out from SDCC, as for this post, it’s all about the newest posters released, so far, this weekend.
In preparation for their panel later today, Warner Bros. has released a number of first posters for Wonder Woman, Kong: Skull Island, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and The LEGO Batman Movie, as well as a new poster for the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’ll be interesting to see the SDCC footage for films, if WB plans on releasing footage for them. The film most likely to not get footage would be Kong: Skull Island, but there’s still a good chance of that happening since we do have an official image and poster. While I’m excited to see the first footage for King Arthur, Wonder Woman is the one we’re all looking forward to the most. Hopefully WB and DC pull out all the stops for the greatest female superhero of all-time.
Check out the new posters below, and make sure to keep an eye out here on Apocaflix! as we’ll be posting all the new footage released as soon as it becomes available.
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to FindThem opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
