Blade Runner 2049

Ryan Gosling fans rejoiced as new footage of Blade Runner 2049 was shown.

It revealed more of Jared Leto's character as Gosling's Officer K met with him at what appeared to be a replicant creation facility.

It also featured a ton of explosions and Harrison Ford reprising his role as Rick Deckard running for his life.

Gosling told the crowd:

It was so surreal to be walking around the universe of Blade Runner. The craftsmanship of this film is really on another level. Every location was real. Every set was there. Every prop was functional. It was a fully functioning, living, breathing world.

Exciting stuff - but you'll have to wait until October before the film is released. In the meantime, here's the trailer.

War for the Planet of the Apes

The last time we saw Caesar, all out war was about to start between humans and apes.

Fast forward a few years and we see it in full flow in the latest installment in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise.

A new pretty intense trailer was screened and later put online which has got fans and critics whipped up for its release. 

Watch it below and keep an eye out for ruthless Colonel Woody Harrelson as he ominously says: "There are times when it is necessary to abandon your humanity to save humanity." 

Oo-er.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Few film studios have made the footage shown at CinemaCon available for the masses online.

So leave it to Marvel to come to the rescue and release a new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The clip gives us a better look at Tom Holland as Peter Parker, a better look at Michael Keaton as Vulture (another Birdman, if you like) and a better look at Robert Downey Jr - because who doesn't like Tony Stark?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean still

The fifth film in the swashbuckling franchise was given an early screening at CinemaCon before its release in May.

The third and fourth movies failed to set US box offices - or the critics - alight, but many came away from the preview pleasantly surprised.

It sees Johnny Depp return as Captain Jack Sparrow and Javier Bardem play the villainous Captain Salazar, while British actress and Skins star Kaya Scodelario also appears.

Justice League

Ben Affleck surprised audiences by turning up for the Justice League presentation alongside Henry Cavill (Superman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman).

Everyone was just as surprised at the fact none of them said a word.

But director Zack Snyder was on hand to do the talking, saying the film was "the culmination of a journey of seven years".

An extended trailer was shown, not too dissimilar to the one released earlier this week, with extra chat and battle scenes.

Wonder Woman

Before she's seen in Justice League, Wonder Woman has her own film out first in June.

Gal Gadot wasn't in Las Vegas to promote the movie - she just gave birth last week so we'll forgive her - but Chris Pine and director Patty Jenkins were on hand to introduce some new scenes.

One featured Diana in full-on battle mode taking out a bunch of guys left, right and centre.

But there was more chatter about Pine's freshly shaven head.

The Fate of the Furious

Universal sneaked in a screening of the eighth Furious film, with the cast turning up to introduce it - although, sadly, Dame Helen Mirren wasn't present.

Vin Diesel also paid an emotional tribute to the late Paul Walker, who died in 2013, saying he only agreed to make another film because it was Walker who said there should be an eighth instalment.

He said:

It was Paul Walker who promised eight. Part of Paul’s legacy lives through every frame that we shoot. I always feel like he’s looking down on us so we didn’t want to let him down.

But reaction was generally positive from those that saw it.

Dunkirk

About five minutes of footage from Christopher Nolan's epic war drama Dunkirk were shown at the conference.

And those five minutes were enough to blow people away, leading to a standing ovation from the gathered audience.

Nolan shot the movie on massive Imax 65mm and 65mm large format film, saying he wanted to tell the story of the British evacuation of the French region in 1940 "in the most visceral way possible".

Some took to Twitter to express their approval:

The film also features One Direction's Harry Styles in his big screen debut - which will delight lots of female fans, but Nolan may get tired of answering questions about the pop idol's new hair cut. 

It'll be out in July, but won't be screened at Cannes because Nolan says it won't be ready in time.
