The theatrical movie business was hit hard by COVID, with theaters in most major cities remaining closed till just recently, and the future of some movie houses -- like L.A.'s iconic Cinerama Dome -- still in question. But Marvel Studios, whose Avengers-related titles have been some of the most successful movies of the last decade, are doing their part to get people back in seats, and have just released a new three-minute promo video titled "Marvel Studios Celebrates The Movies."
The first half of the trailer uses some archived audio of the late Stan Lee talking about movies' power to bring us together, culminating in some theater footage of crowds going wild for Avengers: Endgame's climax. It then transforms into a sizzle reel for Marvel's many (many!) upcoming titles, including a first look at The Eternals which is directed by Chloé Zhao, who just won Best Director Oscar for Nomadland, and features a swole Kumail Nanjiani, not to mention Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Kit Harington Salma Hayek and Brian Tyree Henry.
