Eternals Trailer: New Marvel Film Has a Bollywood Dance Sequence, Indian Wedding


Eternals’ first trailer is here. On Monday, Marvel Studios unveiled a two-minute teaser trailer for its next superhero squad that features Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Don Lee, Lauren Ridloff, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Barry Keoghan, and Kumail Nanjiani. Together, the 10 of them are a part of Eternals, an immortal alien race that used to be created by the Celestials. The first Eternals trailer shows their arrival on planet Soil, their range of powers, and a bit of circle of relatives banter. It also gives us our first look at Nanjiani’s Bollywood dance sequence, and a glimpse at a surprising traditional Indian wedding between Madden and Chan’s characters, Ikaris and Sersi, respectively. What’s going on in Eternals precisely?

All the Eternals are capable of wielding cosmic energy, as you’ll be able to see in the first Eternals trailer. Madden’s Ikaris can fly and project cosmic energy out of his eyes, Hayek’s Ajak has curative abilities, Jolie’s can form weapons out of cosmic energy, Chan’s Sersi can manipulate matter, Lee’s Gilgamesh can fashion an exoskeleton, Ridloff’s Makkari — Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first deaf superhero — can scout planets with super-speed, McHugh’s Sprite can project lifelike illusions, Henry’s Phastos — MCU’s first homosexual superhero — is a cosmic-powered inventor, Keoghan’s Druig can keep an eye on minds, and Nanjiani’s Kingo can shoot out cosmic energy from his hands.

The first Eternals trailer also gives us our first peek at Kit Harington in character. Harington is playing Dane Whitman, a human warrior who wields a mystical sword. Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor) plays Phastos’ husband, and there are undisclosed roles for Ozer Ercan (Heart and Lungs), Jashaun St. John (The Short History of the Long Road), Zain Al Rafeea (Capernaum), and Harish Patel (Mr. India). Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao (Nomadland) is the creator and director on Eternals, working off an earlier screenplay by Kaz and Ryan Firpo. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is the producer. MCU veteran Ben Davis is the cinematographer. Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones) is the composer on Eternals.

Here’s the official synopsis for Eternals from Marvel Studios:

After an unforeseen tragedy following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals — an immortal alien race created by the Celestials who have secretly lived on Soil for over 7,000 years — reunite to offer protection to humanity from their depraved counterparts, the Deviants.

Eternals is out in late October in India and November 5 in america. In India, Eternals will likely release in six languages — English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada — provided Marvel is doing so for both Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
