Black Adam Trailer Is Here! Does It Look Good?

The Black Adam RT score isn't fresh as critic reviews hit over the last 24 hours. Guess never trust social media reactions.

The Black Adam trailer is here folks. The movie has been in development for some time and a trailer was expected today from WB/D. Well, here it is, check out Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam. Then I’ll drop all the official press release content and finally, what I think?

Press Release Details

From New Line Cinema, Dwayne Johnson stars in the action adventure “Black Adam.” The first-ever feature film to explore the story of the DC Super Hero comes to the big screen under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”).

Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods— and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “One Night in Miami”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” “Rush Hour 3”) as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”) as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”) as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate.

Collet-Serra directed from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, screen story by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, based on characters from DC. Black Adam was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. The film’s producers were Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia, with Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Chris Pan, Eric McLeod, Geoff Johns and Scott Sheldon.

“Black Adam” smashes into theaters and IMAX internationally beginning 19 October 2022 and in North America on October 21, 2022. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Credits not final/subject to change.

So, what do we think? For me, this definitely looks like a movie I want to watch. However, is it a movie I want to catch at theatres or just wait to watch at home? Right now, I think I could wait. Though, My son may have other ideas on that front, so I might end up catching this in theatres anyway.

There’s nothing that looks funky on show here. I’m just not that attracted to what I perceive this story to be. When I read comics, many moons ago, the version of Black Adam I came across most often was a villain. I know he has that anti-hero thing going on also, but I guess I never caught those comics. With this trailer, I feel like I can see the whole movie already played out in my head. I could of course be wrong and there are still many surprises to come, I guess we will find out October 19th?

That’s me, what about you? What did you think of the Black Adam trailer? As always, leave us any thoughts below, or over on Discord.
