Avengers: Infinity War Leaked Trailer
Anthony Russo, Joe Russo‘s Avengers: Infinity War (2018) leaked movie trailer from the 2017 Disney D23 Expo and the San Diego Comic-Con International stars Robert Downey, Jr., Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth. Avengers: Infinity War’s plot synopsis: “As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.”

The full Avengers: Infinity War trailer has leaked online. It was bound to happen. You would have thought that movie studios would have caught onto the power of: HD video recording cellphones, the Internet, file storage websites, streaming websites, forums, and bulletin boards but it seems that they have not.
I love the Thanos (Josh Brolin) speech in this trailer where he is virtually…well…you’ll see. If you have read the comic book issues that this film is based on (I am lucky enough to own the first printing of them. I never thought they would be made into a film), you will know what I am alluding to.

The leaked Avengers: Infinity War trailer was first shown at the 2017 Disney D23 Expo then at the San Diego Comic-Con International. It wasn’t until a few days ago that the bootleg of that Avengers: Infinity War trailer found its way online. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has been attacking video viewing websites that house it. Take downs notices have been issued all over the place though there are still a variety of websites, pages, and services that are housing the trailer (alluded to above). After watching the trailer, I can see why. The film looks very good. I hope Thanos’s backstory takes up a good chuck of the film. No one wants another vapid bad guy e.g. X-Men: Apocalypse and Doctor Strange.
Detailed descriptions of that trailer found their way online long before the trailer did (spoilers):
the Infinity War trailer opened with the Asgardian [Thor] being flung against the windshield of the Milano, the ship commanded by Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) from Guardians of the Galaxy. “Get it off!” shouts Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), as though a particularly ugly bug had been smushed there.
Mantis (Pom Klementieff) brings Thor back to life, and he promptly greets out Guardians with an unfriendly, “Who the hell are you?” (To be fair, Star-Lord had just told his fellow Guardians, “This might be dangerous, so let’s put on our mean faces.”) It then seems like Thor joins forces with the Guardians to guide them to Earth, where we see the following things go down, in quick succession:
Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) seems to cut a flaming car in half. It looks like her beau Vision (Paul Bethany) might be trapped nearby, and to judge from their faces, something sad and bad is going down.
“Death follows him like a shadow,” we hear, as Josh Brolin’s ultimate villain Thanos is teased.
Suddenly, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki appears, cutting through flaming wreckage to grab the Tesseract, which holds one of the Infinity Stones. Is this what Scarlet Witch and Vision were trying to prevent?
Next, there’s a glimpse of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker on his school bus. The hair on his arms stands up. How’s that for some trouble-activated spider-sense?
“He’s come to us,” someone says, as some alien ships crash land on a wrecked Earth. A worried Mantis stands with Iron Man, Thor, Doctor Strange, the Hulk, and the other heroes as the aircrafts approach.
“This does put a smile on my face,” intones Thanos, as Gamora (Zoe Saldana) takes in the wreckage of the room kept by the Collector (Benicio del Toro). More Infinity Stones pillaged.
And that’s when Thanos walks through a portal onto Earth — big and hulking and boasting a shit-eating grin. Star-Lord and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) leap into action, harnessing magic and airborne stepping stones. Even Spider-Man swings into action, wearing a cool new suit … perhaps the one teased at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming?
Briefly, we see Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), who’s blond now, and Captain America, who’s bearded. Listen, I know the fate of the universe is at stake, but don’t we all feel a little refreshed after spending valuable time on an undercover makeover? Talk to Wonder Woman about that, she knows what’s up.
In the final moments, things get truly heightened. Thanos grabs Thor’s head in his meaty paw and regards it like a grape he’s about to smush. Maybe he saw that scary black-and-white episode of Twin Peaks and wants to practice storming radio stations and breaking open heads?
“You can run from it,” growls Thanos, “but your destiny still arrives.” And then he holds up one hand and seemingly destroys a planet far away in the sky — or, if this scene is taking place on Earth, our freaking moon — and heaves the remains of it at our Avengers in a single shot.
Avengers: Infinity War also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana, Benedict Cumberbatch, Pom Klementieff, Tom Holland, Peter Dinklage, Josh Brolin, Brie Larson, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, and Bradley Cooper.
