We’re just a few days away from Captain Marvel landing in theaters and, as you may have heard, this Marvel movie is actually a period piece, taking place in the halcyon days of yore: the 1990s. You remember the 1990s, dawg. It was a totally different time. All the kids were talking about Pokèmon! The Lion King was set to rule the summer box office! The name Donald Trump was on everyone’s lips! How far we’ve come.
One thing that has changed quite a bit: movie trailers. And the people over at the Nerdist decided to do what Marvel itself should have done and give Captain Marvel an honest-to-goodness 90s-style trailer, complete with a dizzying amount of explosions, lots of gravel-voiced exposition and a complete breakdown of the cast. Look, we dug the actual Captain Marvel trailer a lot, but you wouldn’t hear us complain if this has been the only piece of marketing for the movie.
Speaking of, want to see something cool? Captain Marvel premiered in the UK earlier this week and we got this fantastic shot of the star Brie Larson on the red carpet.
