For those not familiar with Cinemacon, it took place this year between Apr 25, 2022 – Thu, Apr 28, 2022 and is a convention attended by international and domestic cinema representatives from single-screen to 2,000+ screen companies; distribution, marketing, and publicity representatives from international motion picture studios; worldwide equipment and concession vendors, and, representatives from all ancillary markets and facets of the motion picture industry from media to the filmmaking community, per the event’s official website.
Typically, this is where we get a sneak peek at all the exciting films that are coming to premier the following year in theaters.
One other highlight that came out of this year’s special event was a look at footage from the upcoming “Avatar 2” film. Per a report by Variety, “it seems CinemaCon attendees were given 3D glasses to watch the minutes-long trailer, which contained almost no dialogue. Instead, exhibitors were immersed into different regions across the dazzling world of Pandora through sweeping visuals of the planet’s crystal blue oceans and lakes. The footage also shows the local tribe of Na’vi interacting with various species resembling whales and pelicans, some of which flew through the screen and into audience member’s faces thanks to the three-dimensional technology.”
Which of these exciting films are you excited to see in the coming few years? Let us know in the comments!
