CinemaCon is happening this week in Las Vegas, and the news is flying. Disney just kicked off their 90-minute panel, which will reportedly contain roughly 70 minutes of footage. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige was on hand, to introduce a sizzle reel. Feige says he just came back from a ‘creative retreat’ where they planned out the next 10 years of the MCU. He’ll be headed back directly after the panel.
We will remind you that unfortunately, pretty much EVERYTHING shown at CinemaCon will not be released to the public.
We’re updating live…
The first sizzle reel included shots from Ryan Coogler‘s upcoming “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and James Cameron‘s “Avatar 2.” We know the audience was asked to pick up 3D glasses on the way in.
Apparently 20 minutes of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” was shown. Responses seem overwhelmingly positive.
Pixar’s “Lightyear” gets a 30-minute preview. Some in the audience have already had early press screenings.
Next up is Cameron’s “Avatar 2,” which will be preceded by a theatrical re-release of “Avatar.” The film has been remastered for picture and sound. Producer John Landau joined Cameron on stage to introduce footage. The pair say that “each sequel will play out as a standalone movie.” More on “Avatar 2” here.
Nothing about “Star Wars,” but that’s unsurprising as Celebration is right around the corner.
