The Suicide Squad opens in August, and it just gave us a good first look at the film. Jason Statham’s Wrath of Man also launched a stunning action-packed trailer. Just like these two, there are several upcoming action movies that we are extremely excited about, but haven’t seen any footage of. Now mind you, we’re not talking about films like F9, Top Gun: Maverick, or Black Widow because they’ve already released multiple trailers. Here are the films which will be releasing their debut trailers within the next two-three months or so:
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard
Ryan Reynolds and Uncle Sam’s The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard has been pulled up for a June 16 release instead of August. The previous outing of this duo was hilarious. So, there’s a lot of excitement for the sequel. June isn’t far from us and Lionsgate is yet to give us even the first trailer. So, we should actually be getting it within a few days.
The Tomorrow War
Paramount’s upcoming sci-fi action piece starring Chris Pratt is scheduled for July 23. Yet we’ve got zero footage for the film. It seems to be pretty action-heavy, and we’d like to see what it has to offer. Considering that the film should release as per its schedule, a new trailer is probably on its way this month or the next.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Black Widow has taken Shang-Chi’s previous release date. So, the second Phase 4 movie has been pushed to September 3. While we’ve seen plenty of footage for Black Widow, Marvel is yet to begin the marketing campaign for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. There were times when we used to get an MCU trailer 6-7 months prior to a film’s release. Shang-Chi is five months away and we’ve still not seen how this film looks like. Because it is an entirely new wing that Marvel is venturing into, they need to market the film well. So, we should be getting the first Shang-Chi trailer within this month or probably in May.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage
Sony has been continuously moving the Venom sequel around. September 17 is its new release slot. Again, if the plan is to release the film after 5 months, then the marketing has to begin so it could generate the right amount of hype. Everyone is waiting to lay their eyes on Carnage. Come on Sony, give us our first trailer already!!
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins
The G.I. Joe franchise is getting a new start with Henry Golding’s new Snake Eyes movie. Considering that it’s Snake Eyes we’re talking about, this film will certainly have plenty of action in store for us. Hasbro and Paramount rescheduled it for an October 22 release. So, there’s still plenty of time left for the film to arrive. And that means, the highly awaited first trailer might take at least two months, if not more.
Among Netflix’s big releases of 2021 comes the Ryan Reynolds, Gal Godot, and Dwayne Johnson starrer, Red Notice. Actually, we’ve seen a few seconds of footage through Netflix’s 2021 film preview trailer. But we’re hoping that the streamer will soon be giving us our first full trailer of this big-budget action-comedy. There’s a chance that the film might arrive in the last quarter of the year. So again, we shouldn’t expect trailer 1 for a few months at least.
Reports have suggested that Marvel is extremely happy with what Chloe Zhao has done with Eternals. That being said, this film has shot up among the most anticipated movies of the year. It was supposed to arrive in November 2020, but now it has been placed for a November 5, 2021 release. By now, we should have got our first look. But I guess we’d have to wait until we get the Shang-Chi trailer.
Mission: Impossible 7
It has been a while since Tom Cruise wrapped up filming the 7th installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Considering how good the last three films were, the hype for this one has blown through the roof. For that reason, its first trailer is among the highly anticipated ones. But since it is coming out on November 19, we might have to wait a couple of months before laying our eyes on the first piece of footage.
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Sony likes to release the first trailers for the Spider-Man films 6-7 months prior to its arrival. Since it is set to arrive on December 17, we might not get the first trailer until June of July. Hopefully by that time, Sony will have released a trailer for both Venom 2, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Oh, and yes, even when we do get the first Spider-Man 3 footage, we shouldn’t expect to see any multiverse cameos in it.
The Matrix 4
Keanu Reeves returns alongside Carrie Ann Moss in the fourth installment of Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix. People are excited as Neo and Trinity will reunite along with many new characters. It hits theatres and HBO Max on December 22. So, the first look at this particular action blockbuster might take a while. But, it’s needless to say that The Matrix 4’s first trailer will certainly create a few viewership records.
Hopefully, none of these action movies will be delayed because we’ve had enough pushbacks already. What we want now are the trailers for these films. Which of them are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below!
