Rick and Morty. The Walking Dead. The New Mutants. The Boys. His Dark Materials. And a lot more. San Diego Comic-Con 2020 — which has gone online-only thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and is fittingly called Comic-Con@Home — had a lot of new trailers to offer, thanks to the hundreds of panels taking place across the four-day pop culture mega-event. To make things easier for everyone, we decided to compile the biggest trailers shown at Comic-Con@Home in one place. We will keep adding to this list as new ones keep coming in across the four-day event. So be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking in through the weekend. Here are the best film and TV trailers we've seen at Comic-Con 2020.
For All Mankind
Release date: TBA 2020 (Apple TV+)
Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore's alternate history space race saga is set to return for its second run, which plows deeper into Cold War-era tensions between Americans and Soviets, further fuelled by the drive to dominate the Solar System. You know what that means: astronauts with guns. The stakes are definitely higher on For All Mankind season 2.
Rick and Morty
Release date: TBA (Netflix)
Dan Harmon had promised that the wait for Rick and Morty season 5 would be much shorter than the one fans had to endure for season 4, and the Adult Swim — the show's US broadcaster — Comic-Con@Home panel showed that the creators intend to keep their word. Arguably, the two-minute Rick and Morty season 5 first look is storyboard-level animation, but we'll take what we can get.
Release date: October 16 (Hulu)
It's based on Marvel Comics characters and produced by Marvel Studios, but the new Hulu series — created by an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum — seems to have gotten rid of the “Marvel” term altogether, if the first trailer is any indication. Its lack of connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe might afford it more room to expand any way it pleases, which is possibly the reasoning behind the move.
The Walking Dead
Release date: October 4 (Disney+ Hotstar)
Originally slated for April, fans of the long-running zombie horror series have had to wait for a while to see how The Walking Dead seasons 10 ends, owing to post-production delays caused by the pandemic. Well, it's not the end anymore, as AMC has added six more episodes to season 10, it was revealed at Comic-Con@Home. Additionally, we now have the opening minutes of season 10 episode 16, starting at 1:29 below.
Release date: August 17 (Disney+ Hotstar)
Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams join forces to deliver this adaptation of Matt Ruff's 2016 eponymous book that offers a look at the horrors of racism in 1950s Jim Crow laws-driven southern United States of America, with an additional allegory of Lovecraftian monsters such as Cthulhu that give the series and novel its name.
Release date: September 4 (Amazon Prime Video)
Since a trailer had already been released, The Boys' Comic-Con@Home panel came with a one-minute clip that finds the titular group at sea dealing with a bunch of whales controlled by the Deep (Chace Crawford). As you can expect, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Co. pick the goriest route out possible.
The New Mutants
Release date: August 28 (Cinemas)
We got a look at the first two minutes — plus a new Comic-Con@Home teaser — for the much-delayed X-Men horror spin-off, which features a voice-over from illusion-creator Dani (Blu Hunt) and a disaster of sorts. It then transitions into the teaser involving the rest of the cast: Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, and Henry Zaga. Not available as a separate clip as yet, it starts at the 24:12 mark below.
Bill & Ted Face the Music
Release date: 2020 (Cinemas)
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter return in their titular roles nearly three decades later — this is the third entry in the film series — that finds them having to perform a song to save their reality. They decide to travel to the future and “steal” the song from their future counterparts, but things don't naturally go as you can imagine. Meanwhile, their daughters are doing some time travelling of their own.
His Dark Materials
Release date: Autumn 2020 (Disney+ Hotstar)
The one-minute trailer for His Dark Materials season 2 packs a lot in, and hence, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Lyra Belacqua (Dafne Keen) is working with Will Parry (Amir Wilson) in season 2 as she's still being hunted by the Magisterium, which calls for more control — a slide towards further authoritarianism. Lee Scoresby (Lin-Manuel Miranda) is disappointed that he failed to keep Lyra safe. And the knife that gives the second His Dark Materials book its name is also shown.
Release date: Autumn 2020 (Amazon Prime Video)
John Cusack, Rainn Wilson, and Sasha Lane lead the cast of this adaptation of the British original, from Gone Girl and Sharp Objects writer Gillian Flynn. It centres on a group of comic book fans who discover that everything in the titular comic — a massive government conspiracy involving biological warfare and the possible end of the world — is real.
Wizards: Tales of Arcadia
Release date: August 7 (Netflix)
Executive producer Guillermo del Toro wraps up his animated trilogy with a time-bending adventure that takes them back to medieval Camelot, with the supernatural heroes — led by wizard-in-training Douxie (Colin O'Donoghue) — taking on supernatural enemies. O'Donoghue is joined by returning Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Emile Hirsch, Steven Yeun, and Clancy Brown in the voice cast. Stephanie Beatriz, Alfred Molina, and John Rhys Davies are new.
