Thanks to San Diego Comic Con, a LOT of cool new trailers and teasers have come out over the past week or so. Here are just a few:
The Dark Knight Rises Teaser
Batman Begins is probably my favorite superhero movie of all time (OF ALL TIME), which is amazing, considering how much of an X-men fangirl I am. With Begins and its successor, The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan took superhero movies to a mind-blowing new level. So it’s no surprise that his finale, The Dark Knight Rises, is easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2012.
This really is a teaser — we don’t get to see much, if anything, from Catwoman or Bane, the two new villains for the movie. That being said, it’s still a great first look at the film, and I can’t wait till we get a full-length trailer.
Doctor Who – Season 6.2 Trailer
We’ve been over my love for this show before, and now after a summer break, the new episodes are starting up on August 27!
With only a minute’s worth of footage, it’s difficult to get an accurate read on the second half of the season, but looking at the new episode titles so far — “Let’s Kill Hitler”, “Night Terrors”, “The Girl Who Waited”, and “The God Complex” — it’s seems like we’re in for a hell of a ride.
Avatar: Legend of Korra Trailer
I haven’t gone fully into detail about just how much I love Avatar: The Last Airbender (A LOT), but the short version is that it’s probably the best animated series I’ve seen in the past 10 years. So I don’t care if this is a Nickelodeon cartoon, I’m SO STOKED for the sequel series that it’s not even funny.
This series follows the new Avatar, Korra, a 14-year-old from the Southern Water Tribe who has already mastered Firebending, Waterbending, and Earthbending. She’s on her way to to learn Airbending from Aang’s son, Tenzin, in Republic City, a sprawling steampunk city that’s the center of the new “Avatar” world. However, things aren’t always as they seem, and Korra will find herself facing an anti-bending revolution in addition to her training.
There’s not an embeddable version of the trailer (thanks, Nickelodeon), but you can check it out on the Nickelodeon site. We don’t get a chance to actually hear anyone talking, but the animation is top-notch and it looks like we’re in for some excellent fight scenes.
This is one show that I’ll be following closely, and I’ll mostly likely drop it into the queue the moment it hits DVD.
Unfortunately, there’s not a date set for the series yet, but hopefully it will be soon.
