Brie Larson‘s visit to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum was the perfect setting to introduce the first official trailer for Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel. The much-anticipated superhero film stars Larson in the titular role and features Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as Nick Fury.
The nearly two minute trailer begins with Captain Marvel’s space craft crashing through a Blockbuster Video’s roof. She meets up with Nick and reveals, “I keep having these memories. I see flashes. I think I had a life here but I can’t tell if it’s real.”
Nick confesses we can’t fight outside threats without her help, and Captain Marvel replies, “I’m not what you think I am.”
In addition to Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, the cast includes Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lee Pace (The Book of Henry), Lashana Lynch (Brotherhood, Fast Girls), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Algenis Perez Soto (Sambá, Sugar), Rune Temte (Eddie The Eagle), Mckenna Grace (I, Tonya), Clark Gregg (Live by Night, The Avengers), and Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directed the superhero action drama. Kevin Feige served as a producer, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patricia Whitcher and Stan Lee executive producing.
The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Ben Davis (Doctor Strange), production designer Andy Nicholson (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), costume designer Sanja Hays (The Fate of the Furious), editors Elliot Graham (Molly’s Game) and Debbie Berman (Black Panther), visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend (Avengers: Age of Ultron), stunt coordinator Jim Churchman (Doctor Strange, Ant-Man) and special effects supervisor Dan Sudick (Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther).
Marvel Studios has set a March 8, 2019 theatrical release date for Captain Marvel.
