Revealed during the panel celebrating the work of the Russo brothers at Comic-Con 2019, this trailer for 21 Bridges further reveals the crime-thriller. The film follows an expertly trained NYPD detective played by Chadwick Boseman puts all of New York City on lockdown in order for him and the other authorities to defeat a gang of cop killers.
In addition to Boseman, the film stars Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch J.K. Simmons, Christian Isaiah, and Keith David, among others. 21 Bridges is directed by Brian Kirk and is produced by Boseman, Joe & Anthony Russo, Logan Coles, and Gigi Pritzker.

21 BRIDGES follows an embattled NYPD detective (Chadwick Boseman), who is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. As the night unfolds, lines become blurred on who he is pursuing, and who is in pursuit of him. When the search intensifies, extreme measures are taken to prevent the killers from escaping Manhattan as the authorities close all 21 BRIDGES to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island. In Theaters September
Finally, we have the trailer for the abomination known as Cats. Although this trailer really has nothing to do with Comic-Con 2019 itself, the fact that it dropped the weekend of SDCC makes it noteworthy in all the wrong ways. Based on the popular and long-running stage play, the film adaptation of Cats is a true sight to behold — but not in a good way. The live-action adaptation, which immediately becomes off-putting, just feels wrong on every level.
Despite this, Cats managed to attract the acting talents of James Corden, Judi Dench, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Franchesca Hayward, and Jason Derulo. Directed by Tom Hooper, the adaptation is scheduled for a prime December 20, 2019 release.
