Another San Diego Comic-Con has come to a close. 2019 was dominated by TV trailers, but the movie side of things was more interested in quality than quantity. And 2019 seems to be the year of the sequel. Easily, the biggest trailer of the weekend was the surprise release of the Top Gun 2: Maverick. Tom Cruise shocked fans who were lucky enough to be in attendance and delivered the first footage from the highly anticipated sequel. Jon Hamm was not messing around when hyping up the footage before it dropped on Thursday.
Andres Muschietti’s IT Chapter Two was another trailer that brought the house down when it dropped early Thursday morning. If horror fans weren’t already hyped to see the sequel, they certainly will be now as Pennywise continues his terror spree. On the opposite side of things, the Cats trailer was also released and it baffled a lot of people and caused quite the stir online. The hyper-realistic cat fur CGI is either amazing or horrifying, depending on your outlook. If you haven’t seen it, consider yourself warned.
Kevin Smith was also able to catch fans off guard when he surprise released the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot trailer. The director was supposed to release the trailer on Saturday night during his Hall H panel, but he decided to release it early and fans were extremely excited to see what Smith has been hyping for the past year. The sequel may hold some type of record for the most celebrity cameos all in one place. Terminator: Dark Fate did not release a new trailer like everybody was hoping, but Tim Miller and crew did deliver an awesome behind-the-scene featurette which delivered some brand-new footage.

A second trailer for Brad Pitt’s Ad Astra was also released and it looks like an epic intergalactic adventure with some deep twists and turns.

With that being said, the movie side of things was a lot smaller this year when compared to past Comic-Cons. However, we will probably end up with some surprises from Disney at the end of August when the D23 Expo.
