Watch all the best trailers from Comic-Con 2018 right here

Rick Marshall

Comic-Con International in San Diego has established itself as an annual launching pad for some of Hollywood’s most-anticipated movie trailers and television previews, and the 2018 edition of the show continued that tradition.

Among the big premieres at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con were the first trailers for James Wan’s oceanic superhero movie Aquaman and M. Night Shyamalan’s crossover film Glass, as well as early peeks at The Walking Dead season 9 and Star Trek: Discovery season 2, among other projects.

Here are the Comic-Con trailers and movie previews we were most excited about this year.

‘Aquaman’

Wonder Woman has been the only critical and commercial hit for Warner Bros. Pictures’ live-action superhero universe so far, which puts the pressure on Aquaman to give the studio another win. The first trailer for the film premiered during the studio’s crowded, two-hour panel.

‘Disenchanted’

Netflix delivered the first, full trailer for The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groenig’s new series, Disenchanted. The trailer offers a few more details about the focus of the show: A hard-drinking, strong-willed young princess named Bean, who sets out with an elf and her personal demon to find her way in the world.

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

Warner Bros. Pictures added a little magic to its panel with the first look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the next installment of the Harry Potter big-screen universe.

‘Glass’

M. Night Shyamalan brought the first trailer for Glass to Comic-Con, giving audiences a peek at a film almost 20 years in the making. The film brings together several characters from 2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split, including Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), The Horde (James McAvoy), and David Dunn (Bruce Willis).

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

Joining Aquaman at Warner Bros. Pictures’ movie panel was the kaiju brawler Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which will extend the connection between recent monster movies Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island and build on the studio’s plans for a cinematic universe of giant monsters. The first trailer for the film was packed with famous monsters from Godzilla’s history, including Mothra, Rodan, and the multi-headed King Ghidorah.

The first teaser for King of the Monsters (see below) was released July 18 on the Instagram account for star Millie Bobby Brown (aka Eleven from Stranger Things), just a few days before the studio’s panel.

George R.R. Martin’s ‘Nightflyers’

A while back, we got a sneak peek at Nightflyers, the upcoming “Psycho in space” series from Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. Now we have a full trailer (see above) for the sci-fi horror series. The trailer debuted during the show’s panel at Comic-Con, and it was also revealed that the series will premiere this fall on Syfy network.

‘The Orville’

A surprise hit for FOX, The Orville returns for a second season later this year, and the network released the first trailer for season 2 on the final day of Comic-Con. Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi series appears to be picking up where it left off, with more cosmic adventures and irreverent comedy that takes its colorful cast from one end of the universe to the other.

‘Shazam’

During its Comic-Con panel, Warner Bros. Pictures also revealed the first trailer for Shazam!, another upcoming superhero film set within its live-action DC Comics superhero universe. The film follows a young boy who gains the ability to turn into a powerful hero with magical abilities and is based on DC’s long-standing hero, Captain Marvel (aka Shazam). This one was a bit of a pleasant surprise, and has fans describing it as “Big with superpowers.”

‘Star Trek: Discovery’

Christopher Pike is in the house — or rather, the ship — in the first trailer for the explosive second season of Star Trek: Discovery, which debuted in San Diego. Played by Anson Mount, Pike has a long history with the franchise (including the film reboots) and offers a fun connection for CBS’ popular new series. He’s dropped smack dab into the middle of the action in the first trailer, taking over the Discovery as captain.

‘The Walking Dead’

The cast of AMC’s hit zombie drama made the trip to San Diego for Comic-Con, and the panel for The Walking Dead featured the debut of the first full trailer for the series’ ninth season — the last one for longtime series star Andrew Lincoln, the actor confirmed.

Updated July 23 with the final roundup of the best trailers from Comic-Con.

    2 Pharmaceutical Stocks to Buy With Dividends of 3% or Better

    During a tough week for the overall market, pharmaceutical stocks across the board fell a few notches despite a lack of significant news for the industry itself. Over the past five years, Pfizer has been able to raise its dividend 42% despite declining sales for aging blockbusters that lost patent protection and a sterile injectibles business that suffered major product shortages after it was acquired. Now that the worst is over, a strong product lineup and bulging pipeline could allow America's largest pharmaceutical company to direct a ton of cash toward its shareholders.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not shouting in the face of retirement planning or being prepared. Although I’ve gotten my life back on track since then, I’m still not worried about being behind on retirement savings, the magical “$1 million saved” for retirement number or all the “what ifs.” Why?

    Saudis reject threats as stocks plunge after Trump comments

    Saudi Arabia on Sunday threatened to retaliate for any sanctions imposed against it after President Donald Trump said the oil-rich kingdom deserves "severe punishment" if it is responsible for the disappearance and suspected murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. The warning from the world's top oil exporter came after a turbulent day on the Saudi stock exchange, which plunged as much as 7 percent at one point. American lawmakers threatened tough punitive action against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain jointly called for a "credible investigation" into Khashoggi's disappearance.

    Guess Who's Profiting From GE's Troubles?

    One person's challenge is another's opportunity, and there are very few CEOs as bold and decisive in taking advantage of a chance to enhance value for shareholders as Emerson Electric's (NYSE: EMR) David Farr. Although the terms of Emerson's deal to buy General Electric's (NYSE: GE) Intelligent Platforms business weren't disclosed, it's likely that GE's desire to sell assets in order to raise cash means Farr's company wouldn't have overpaid to acquire a strategically important business. While the very-highly-regarded former Danaher CEO Larry Culp is now charged with turning around GE's fortunes, the executive with best recent experience in turning around a major industrial company is actually Emerson's David Farr.

    Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.

Magellan has long been one of the most conservative midstream partnerships, focusing on self-funding as much of its growth as it can to avoid dilutive unit sales -- a model which peer and industry bellwether Enterprise Products Partners L.P. is starting to mimic. This conservative approach, however, doesn't mean the company is skimping on growth.

With all of that in mind, here are the recently released details of these five 2019 Social Security changes. As I mentioned, Social Security beneficiaries are getting a 2.8% COLA starting with their January 2019 benefit payment.

    Investors have never been more excited about the prospects for marijuana stocks, and many of the best-known first movers in the industry call Canada their home. Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF) (TSX: ACB) is one of the major companies in the cannabis industry looking to cash in on the impending legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, and it's put together an impressive set of resources designed to let it take maximum advantage of growing consumer interest in cannabis products.

    Bank of America profit beats on lower costs, loan growth

    In his near-decade long tenure as chief executive officer, Brian Moynihan has tried to streamline the lender's sprawling operations by cutting jobs, digitizing retail operations and getting rid of crisis-era mortgages, which he inherited as part of its acquisition of Countrywide Financial. Two years ago, Moynihan pledged to cut expenses to $53 billion by the end of this year and stick to that level until 2020. "Responsible growth, backed by a solid U.S. economy and a healthy U.S. consumer, combined to deliver the highest quarterly pre-tax earnings in our company's history," Moynihan said in a statement.
