Rise of Skywalker and Black Widow. What was shown at the Disney presentation at Comic Con Russia 2019
On October 3, Disney made a presentation at Comic Con Russia 2019, where it showed fresh exclusive materials for future projects: Black Widow, Star Wars: Skywalker. Sunrise ”,“ Maleficent: Lady of Darkness ”,“ Forward ”,“ Mulan ”and“ Frozen 2 ”.
Maleficent: Mistress of Darkness (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil), 2019
A small piece was presented, which was dynamically mounted to put together two different scenes.
In it, the daughter of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) Aurora (El Faning) tells her mother that she is going to marry the prince and that they should come to dinner with his family. Then the viewer is transferred to the castle, showing beautiful views of the kingdom. And there, at the dinner table, Maleficent begins to exchange barbs and reproaches with the Queen performed by Michelle Pfeiffer.
Two stubborn and self-confident women could not stop bickering for the sake of children, so Maleficent raged and attacked the guards. As a result, the evening is ruined and a war is brewing between people and magical creatures.
Star Wars: Skywalker. Sunrise ”(Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), 2019
Here it was not possible to especially please something new. They showed a rather stingy movie for fresh shots, almost entirely consisting of slicing past films.
The only new thing is video footage from the set mixed with JJ Abrams comments.
In the end, they still showed a video where there was a moment with Ray, whose red lightsaber was transformed into a double-sided lightsaber, like Darth Maul’s. But we have already seen this.
Black Widow (2020)
The most important exclusive presentation. Materials on a solo film about Natasha Romanoff. It all started with cutting her moments from all the past paintings, but then the action was transferred to Budapest, where in her apartment she encountered the character of Florence Pugh – Elena Belova.
The viewer was shown that the actress, like Johanson, also did not bother herself with physical activity for preparation, since visually she does not at all make the impression of a professional killer. And, actually, when a fight broke out between them, it became even more obvious. A sharp installation in the worst traditions of the “Jason Born”, a little shaking, tricky angles, showing understudies and other joys. You watch this scene and remember how Tarantino made Uma Thurman fight with Vivika A. Fox in the first “Kill Bill”, where everything looked a hundred times better (although there were some stuntmen there).
After the battle, the Black Widows reconcile, get to know each other and then show a cut where you can see the Red Guard performed by David Harbor. He is all in tattoos, disheveled and calls the girls his family. During the cutting, they introduced constantly flashing female mercenaries (is this some kind of special squad?), And during the final on the bridge the Black Widow meets Taskmaster, copying her movements.
For some reason, there was a suspicion that the Taskmaster would be a woman – in the video, the figures of him and the Widow seemed similar. There will be nothing surprising in this. The ghost for Ant-Man and the Wasp has already been converted into a woman. Here is another hero in the hood can change the floor.
It ends with a demonstration of the Black Widow’s white robe and Elena’s joke about Natasha’s superhero pose.
