This particular trailer gives us better insight into the story and conflict within the film. The Eternals are a race of people-looking aliens who are tasked with fighting Deviants that are trying to devour Earth.
The Deviants are fairly terrifying beasts made from what looks like space-goo. From the trailer, it appears the Eternals’ powers are essentially like Green Lantern if he chose a better color.
The film stars Angelina Jolie, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, and Barry Keoghan. It was directed by Chloé Zhao, the Oscar-winning director of “Nomadland.”
The incredible cast and talented director means this obscure Marvel property may stand a chance at being something memorably unique. Let’s hope more “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and less “Inhumans.”
Check out the trailer above for the last glimpse of the film before its release. “Eternals” hits theaters November 5th.
