Comic-Con: The seven best trailers from 2015
James R | On 13, Jul 2015
We’ve never been one for superhero headlines and gossip, but we’ve been covering some of the VOD-related highlights of Comic-Con this year, from Amazon’s two new original series that will premiere this year to Vikings and The Walking Dead.
For those who want a quick round-up of some of the best videos from the weekend, though, here’s a brief rundown of the Comic-Con trailers worth seeing. Because who doesn’t want an excuse to smile at the Star Wars behind-the-scenes footage again?
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
Easily the film with the most hype around it this year, the behind-the-scenes footage of Episode VII is a perfectly judged tribute to fan nostalgia, as well as the talent working on the new sequel.
What has the BBC got in store for its time-travelling Christmas special? Finally, we have our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in the traditional Holmes get-up. (For more, click here.)
Does the world need more Heroes? This trailer does a surprisingly good job of winning us over.
The Man in the High Castle
Amazon wins a lot of bonus points this weekend for not only showing up at Comic-Con, but also justifying its presence on the TV circuit, with trailers for both Hand of God and The Man in the High Castle. This alternative history/sci-fi thriller, though, just keeps looking better the more we see of it. (For more, click here.)
Ash vs. Evil Dead
Comic-Con audiences were treated to an exclusive glimpse of such things as Suicide Squad, as well as highlight reels of Arrow and The Flash, but away from superheroes, the most unexpectedly exciting project was surely Ash vs. Evil Dead, which suggests that turning movie franchises into TV shows may not always be such a bad idea after all.
