New information about so many highly anticipated films is going to be unveiled at CinemaCon 2022 this week! Avatar 2, Black Panther 2, Jurassic World Dominion, The Flash and Black Adam – you name it, CinemaCon got it.
It's going to be a hot one this week as Las Vegas hosts the biggest film industry executives at CinemaCon 2022 from Monday, April 25 to Thursday, April 28. With all five major Hollywood studios participating this year, we can expect lots of big announcements and details about highly anticipated projects from so-called Big Five (Sony, Warner Bros., Universal, Disney, Paramount) and also Lionsgate and NEON.
Why is CinemaCon so important? Like San Diego Comic Con, for example, CinemaCon is one of the biggest events in the film industry, only, unlike SDCC, uniting both creators and fans, CinemaCon is a place where film industry leaders and theater executives gather together – so it can be considered as a purely professional event. What's important for us, the audience, is a sheer amount of major studios participating this year – and tons of new footage they are expected to share. This means that we, the fans, will get a lot of new details, spoilers and information about what awaits us in the summer blockbusters season.
Here's the list of all the major exhibitors, most anticipated film screenings and studio presentations taking place at CinemaCon 2022 during the upcoming week.
Sony Pictures at CinemaCon 2022
Monday (April 25), 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Last year Sony Pictures certainly dropped the mic by showing the debut Spider-Man: No Coming Home trailer at CinemaCon 2021. This year Sony's lineup is somewhat less impressive, seeing as how there's no Tom Holland movie to wow the audience with. But hey, at least we got (as rumors have it) Brad Pitt and Bullet Train, and also – possibly – first Kraven the Hunter footage with Aaron Taylor-Johnson currently filming in England.
Rumored, not yet confirmed Sony's projects at CinemaCon 2022:
- Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse Part One,
- Bullet Train,
- Father Stu,
- Where the Crawdads Sing,
- Man From Toronto,
- Kraven the Hunter.
