We’re salivating over the trailers released at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con
So much to watch, such little time
The 2016 San Diego Comic-Con's a wrap, but we're left reeling by the sheer number of must-watch trailers dropped at the event. It's like everything is monumental/classic/pathbreaking/etc. It seems each year, that binge-watching is going to become a real epidemic. It's hard to pick and choose, so we zeroed in on the five that you really, really, really have to. Warning: the suspense could kill you. Many of these trailers are for release as late as next year.
It is not. Womanly. Possible. To watch the Wonderwoman trailer and NOT be super pumped for it. It's next to appalling that the original boss-lady of the Justice League has had to wait THIS long for her own solo film. But the wait has been worth it. Wonderwoman isn't going to be just a pretty movie with a pretty soundtrack and a pretty (oh but what a pretty) face. It's going to be a trailblazer made with its heart in the right place.
For one, it's directed by one of the only women in Hollywood to have broken the glass ceiling. Patty Jenkins was once offered one of the highest budgets ever given to a female director to direct Thor 2—which she later gave up over creative differences (CREATIVE DIFFERENCES!!) She directs the amazing Gal Gadot and her gorgeous raven curls in this one. And Gal's a total badass too.

Game of Thrones
With a debut slated for summer 2017, the seven-episode seventh season will be based in Northern Ireland, Spain and Iceland. Sigh. Such a very long wait. The producers were nice enough to balm the next-to-intolerable wait with a couple of small teasers for us to partake in. Expectations are soaring. (Here's how other people manage the intolerably long wait between seasons.)
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
JK Rowling's screenwriting debut, based on the 2001 novel she wrote under the pseudonym, Newt Scamander is slated for release in November 2016. The film, directed by David Yates and produced by JKR herself, will be the first instalment of a trilogy. No familiar leads in this one though. Wonder how this will play out for the still-fervent Harry Potter fans.
The widely-loved novel by the widely-loved Neil Gaiman is going to be adapted to a TV series format, produced by the author himself. Out in 2017, this series has reportedly achieved the holy grail of being 'better than the book'. In fact, the author thinks so himself! (We're currently reading this furiously amazing Neil-recommended book).
