First-hand accounts of the The Avengers: Infinity War trailer are starting to emerge, and good god, it’s rendered even the most seasoned entertainment reporters to a state of near slack-jawed awe.
Kyle Buchanan of Vulture says the footage opens with The Guardians Of The Galaxy cruising in their ship, The Milano. Suddenly, old mate Thor (Chris Hemsworth), slams unconscious onto the window. Rocket’s (Bradley Cooper) response to the legendary Asgardian: “Get it off!”
Then, judging by how expensive CGI is, hundreds of millions of dollars worth of shit goes down. And that’s not even including the actors’ wages.
The trailer closes up with a scene of seismic consequence: Thanos is seen holding the head of a struggling Thor in his big ol’ hand. The universal baddie tells his adversary “you can run from it, but your destiny still arrives.”
Understandably, punters are going off chops at the description.
