For the second year in a row, 20th Century Fox punched CinemaCon in the face. Last year Fox screened tons of great looking footage from their 2014 films and I thought they had an incredible lineup that would do well. Little did I know they would set the worldwide box office record by breaking $5 billion dollars and taking home a number of Oscars.
This year Fox did it again by world premiering tons of amazing footage from such films as Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Alejandro González Inarritu’s The Revenant, The Peanuts Movie, Victor Frankenstein, and David O.Russell’s Joy. In addition they also showed extended trailers and new footage from Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, Hitman Agent 47, Paper Towns, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Spy, Poltergeist, and more.
As I said, Fox brought the goods I was blown away by their lineup. Like last year, I’m interested in seeing a huge percentage of their upcoming films and it’s likely they’ll have another banner year.
Shortly after the panel I recorded a video blog with Peter from /film about the panel and our thoughts on all the footage. Check it out below and look for more from CinemaCon soon. To take a look at the logos from these Fox films click here, and for the official synopses click here.
