Upcoming blockbusters get the spotlight at the showcase in Las Vegas.
Movies like the upcoming Terminator: Genisys and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation were shown off at the convention for movie owners and press alike, but not in any old traditional fashion. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ben Stiller, and Tom Cruise showed up themselves to direct the audience through their respective flicks, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Cruise showed off a sequence from Rogue Nation where he catches a plane in his hands (!) and explains that no green screen was used: it was all live-action. Shortly after, Stiller showed up to promote Zoolander 2, in character of course. “It’s great to be here at Comic-Con” he said, never breaking character. But somehow the craziest thing that happened was Arnold showing up dressed like his T-800 character to the tune of rock music and going over details of Genisys, which he says “I wouldn’t join if it weren’t going in the right direction.”
If this press conference is any indication, we’re about to have a wilds summer ahead of us.
