The DCEU isn’t the dark and brooding cinematic superhero universe that you first knew when it was launched way back in 2013. Since then it has gone through a series of improvements that have helped build it to become a much better superhero cinematic universe. And now director David F. Sandberg‘s Shazam! starring Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as Billy Batson and the title character, will continue the momentum that was first started by Wonder Woman and then continued with Aquaman.
See, Wonder Woman has this incredible message about female empowerment, while Aquaman surges by centering on a person accepting the life of coming from two different worlds. Each of these films had their own distinct voice while also being superhero films. As for Shazam!, audiences will see a coming of age superhero film that is not only a great origins story but speaks about the importance of foster families. My full review below.
The DCEU is heading in a new direction. And it could be one that improves the franchise as a whole.
With Shazam! nearing its release, Warner Bros. has revealed the newest trailer for the thundering hero. And judging by the looks of things, it will be a lot of fun. Something the DCEU wasn’t really known for, for quite some time. Check out the latest trailer below.
Warner Bros. Pictures released a short new trailer for the latest DC Films title Shazam! last night. Or maybe it’s a long TV spot. They don’t really specify what exactly it is.
The new preview is longer than the usual 15 to 30-second TV spot at just under a minute in length, but shorter than most trailers. But this is Shazam! we’re talking about. The teaser trailer we saw back in July was longer than most official trailers at nearly three minutes. So this one is doing its own thing at this point, and we’re just along for the ride.
You can find the video below along with a synopsis.
At some point in time the DC film universe had to stop being dark and brooding. And it looks like that time is now. The cast and crew of SHAZAM! were at San Diego Comic-Con to prove that the DC Extended Universe is not all doom and gloom with the first trailer for the film.
It looks fun, humorous, and it has plenty of laughs. Check out the first trailer for SHAZAM!, below.
Following up his co-directing gig on last year’s acclaimed rock documentary Lemmy, Greg Oliver is in post-production on his first solo feature film, a psychological horror film entitled Devoured. The first trailer for Devoured has been released, which you can check out here below.
The film stars Marta Milans as a single mother struggling to make ends meet by getting a job washing dishes in a restaurant where nothing is what it seems (or so the trailer would have us believe). She starts having unnerving visions, intense encounters, and it all builds to a “brilliant, shocking ending” (in the words of the trailer). It’s a pretty basic horror trailer made solely to get early word out about the movie and it will likely come in handy when it’s time to sell the movie to the general public. A solid teaser trailer all in all.
