Comic-Con Trailers: ‘It Chapter 2,’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ and ‘His Dark Materials’

Reported by WIRED:

It’s only day one of Comic-Con International, but the conference has already given fans a lot of early looks at upcoming films—and a few trailers. Below are some of the best, from It Chapter 2 to Top Gun: Maverick.

It Chapter 2 (September 6)

“Something happens to you when you leave this town,” the voice of Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) says over footage of bucolic Derry, Maine. “The farther away, the hazier it all gets. But me? I never left. I remember all of it.” So do fans of the first It, which turned one of Stephen King’s most terrifying books into one of 2017’s biggest hits. While the first half of the two-part adaptation gave more setup than scare, this one very much does not: Demon clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) is even more hallucinatorily unhinged, and while I have no idea if the freaky buzzing siren sounds are going to stick around for the movie, they’re goddamn disquieting here. (There’s a reason William Friedkin buried audio of bees in The Exorcist, and it’s not because we find it soothing!) Part of the anticipation between the two chapters has been due to the pitch-perfect casting of the all-growned-up Losers Club, and Mustafa’s cast mates—Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, James Ransone, and more—look to deliver on that promise. The movie’s teaser trailer luxuriated in a single funny-frightening sequence; this one covers the waterfront instead, at the cost of some tension, but there’s more than enough left to make clear that just like Mike, director Andy Muschietti remembers everything. He’s going to make the reunion scary for all of us. —Peter Rubin

Top Gun: Maverick (June 26, 2020)

Have you ever wanted a remake of the highlight reel from the 1986 movie Top Gun? Tom Cruise is here to give it to you! Cruise, the star who is better than anyone at being his own hype-man, surprised Hall H at Comic-Con Thursday to reveal the first trailer for the sequel to his naval aviation classic. (“I feel that lovin’ feeling,” Cruise said to moderate applause.) And really, this first trailer for Fan Service: The Movie—aka Top Gun: Maverick—has everything: Cruise, as Maverick, riding his motorcycle down the road as a fighter jet takes off next to him, shirtless dudes playing an outdoor sport, someone playing a piano in aviators while men in uniform sing along, Jon Hamm. The best part, though? Maverick channeling his inner Arya Stark. When Ed Harris’ grizzled military veteran reminds him “your kind is headed for extinction,” he responds in a way only Arya would: “Maybe so, sir, but not today.” Cue the Kenny Loggins, y’all! —Angela Watercutter

Terminator: Dark Fate Featurette (November 1)

Thirty-five years ago, Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor in The Terminator became one of the definitive action heroines of all time. In Terminator: Dark Fate she’s back, and she’s got two new awesome women with her: Mackenzie Davis as Grace, a new human-machine hybrid, and Natalia Reyes as Dani Ramos, the new target of one very determined Terminator. The franchise has somewhat faltered in recent years—remember Terminator Genisys?—so it’s a sleeping dog that could’ve been left laying, but director Tim Miller (Deadpool) came back for one reason: to finish Sara Connor’s journey. “I try and put myself in the fan state of mind when I read anything on the internet, like how would I feel if they announced a sixth Terminator film and I would feel like, ‘Fuck me. I’ve seen enough of these movies, I’m tired of this story.’ Unless there was something new,” Miller told the Comic-Con audience Thursday. “That story is Linda’s story.” Fans will see her fate when the film hits theaters in November. —Angela Watercutter

His Dark Materials (Fall)

Finally, in steampunk news, HBO released a new trailer for its adaptation of His Dark Materials. The fantasy adventure series, based on Philip Pullman’s trilogy, follows Lyra (Dafne Keen) on her quest to look for a kidnapped friend. What she finds is a twisted plan to kidnap children and an armored bear that just might be able to help her fight back. “In my experience, children love dark, complicated themes and big questions about who we are and where we are, and I think that Pullman never underestimates children either as the hero and heroine of his books or as readers,” executive producer Jane Trantor said during the series’ panel. “I hope we ended up making an adult piece that children will watch and should watch.”
