Every ‘Shazam: Fury of the Gods’ trailer in one place

'Shazam: Fury of the Gods' is almost here and we have all of the trailers!

The DCEU has had a rough go of it as of late. Several of its most anticipated movies and projects have been underwhelming financially, causing cancellations and budget cuts. The first Gal Gadot Wonder Woman movie was a hit, but the sequel flopped. This caused the third movie in the franchise to be scrapped. Black Adam was deemed a box office failure after the Dwayne Johnson-vehicle only made about $390 million. This all means that Shazam: Fury of the Gods, the sequel to 2019’s Shazam movie, has a lot of baggage surrounding it due to the disappointing reputation surrounding DC’s movies right now. After taking a look at the trailers for the film, it looks like the Zachary Levi hero-flick could be a way for the company to turn things around with one of the most exciting new movies coming out in 2023!

SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS - Official Trailer 1

This first trailer was released in July of 2022, about eight months before the release of the film on March 17. The trailer is shown through the perspective of adult Shazam talking about the events of the first movie with a pediatrician, a punchline that is delivered exquisitely halfway through the clip. The rest of the plot is left somewhat vague, although it appears there will be even more use of Shazam’s powers alongside his friends than in the first movie. Press kits and plot synopses online state that Shazam’s foster friend group will have to leverage their alter egos to fend off a deified threat from the outside. This isn’t a very creative plot, but rather a tried and true method to succeed in the superhero genre. Saving the world never gets old, right? I guess it all depends on the journey to get there.

The final trailer for Shazam: Fury of the Gods shows a lot more of the trepidation that Billy Batson has about his obligations to save the world. He even asks that his powers as Shazam get taken away. In classic hero fashion, though, the final scenes of the trailer show the group taking their responsibilities head-on and bringing the fight to the gods. The film appears to have a great mix of humor and drama that is typical of Marvel, but not usually found in the DCEU. For those who hope to see these comics continue to be adapted for the screen, fans are going to want to see this film and show their support. Shazam: Fury of the Gods is in theaters on March 17.

'John Wick: Chapter 4' sees the assassin going global as he attempts to take down the High Table
John Wick Chapter 4

Although the first John Wick movie came out nearly a decade ago, the events of each sequel have taken place in a relatively tight time period. John Wick comes out of retirement to get revenge on the men who killed his dog, and is then brought on to do another job and eventually joins forces with the Bowery King to take down the High Table, a shadowy organization that rules over the world of assassins. That's where we left our highly lethal hero at the end of Parabellum, but now that John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to hit theaters, many want to know what to expect from the new installment, which may or may not be the latest chapter in a great action franchise.

Ever since the first John Wick movie, John's primary goal has been to find a way to leave his life of murder behind and return to the retired life he once led. By the time Chapter 4 rolls around, John seems to understand that he can trust no one inside the world of assassins. Instead, he determines to team up with the bowery king to overthrow the order of the High Table so that he can return to his prior life without any fear that he will be violating the customs and rules established by that organization.

Few directors understand the popular imagination the way that James Cameron does. He's had commercial instincts since early in his career, and he has now directed three of the five most financially successful films ever made. Given that legacy, it can be easy to mock what Cameron does because it's so overtly populist. He is not always a subtle director, but it's hard to deny that he's an effective one. Unlike somewhat like Martin Scorsese or David Fincher, Cameron makes big blockbusters every time he makes a movie, and he always makes them well.
Now, as we look back on his career to date, it's easy to see the throughlines between each of his projects. One thing you might notice: This guy really loves water. Here's every movie Cameron has ever made, ranked.

Succession is one of the best shows in recent television history; therefore, fans of the toxic family satire have been chomping at the bit to get back into the Roy family proceedings ever since Tom (Matthew Mcfadyen) stabbed Shiv (Sarah Snook) in the back at the end of the third season finale. With clear factions presiding over the Waystar Royco CEO tug-of-war, a finish line for the series is starting to take shape.  The Succession season 4 release date is March 26, just a couple of weeks after "The Last of Us" is intended to end. HBO has released a teaser and a full trailer so far to get fans prepared for the next batch of episodes.
