First Trailer and Poster for Chloé Zhao’s Marvel Movie ETERNALS

First look at Zhao's all-star comic book movie.

Can a director as distinctive as Chloé Zhao (The Rider; Nomadland) manage to translate their vision to the micro-managed world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or will they be reduced to the directing equivalent of a traffic cop?

After establishing herself as one of the most exciting filmmakers of her generation, it's disappointing that Zhao has been sucked into the cookie cutter world of Hollywood franchise cinema, but maybe, just maybe she can bring something worthwhile to Eternals.

The film deals with the Eternals, a group of immortals who have vowed to protect Earth from their sworn enemies The Deviants. Ugh. Even typing this is disheartening, but knock yourself out and watch the first trailer below.

Eternals' all-star ensemble cast features Gemma Chan, Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Kit Harrington and Barry Keoghan.

Eternals is in UK/ROI cinemas from November 5th.

The official synopsis reads:

After an unexpected tragedy following the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), the Eternals—an immortal alien race created by the Celestials who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7,000 years—reunite to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants.
