NYCC trailers are as proud a tradition as giant swag bags and the massive crowd of Deadpools that come from nowhere. In order to celebrate all of the latest reveals as well as make it easy to catch up on what’s coming out, here are the nineteen trailers that came out during the convention this weekend.
And so as to show no favoritism, we’ll be going in alphabetical order:
12 Monkeys Season 3
Syfy’s hit show 12 Monkeys, based on the film of the same name, follows time traveler James Cole as he tries to prevent a virus that decimated the world’s population by recruiting top scientists. We don’t know much, except that The Witness, Railly’s child, is safe and the new season will take place in the show’s distant future of 2163. Will Cole make his way to her? How will The Titan be involved? And what will we do with all these feels until then?
Premiere Date: Sometime in 2017 on Syfy
Black Mirror Season 3
This much beloved sci-fi anthology looked like it was over and done in 2014 when it was still owned by Channel 4. However, Netflix picked it up and promised to keep the legacy of the show alive. The episodes will have some big name stars, like Bryce Dallas Howard, Michael Kelly, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jerome Flynn and Kelly Macdonald. From the heartbreaking to the mind-shattering, Black Mirror is the kind of show where you never what to expect, except that it will be quality.
Premiere Date: October 21, 2016 on Netflix
Spinoffs are tricky — while some soar, most die before even finishing their first season. No one is sure who got BBC to green-light this Doctor Who spinoff, or how, but considering the quality of its other two spinoffs (Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures), it’s safe to say that fans are in good hands. The show will follow students of the Coal Hill Academy as they navigate life, love, and the unspeakable horrors of the universe that come creeping in. Like Skins meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
Premiere Date: Spring of 2017 (alongside Doctor Who) on BBC and BBC America

The episode is entitled The Return of Doctor Mysterio, and is sure to be a ton of Christmas-y fun for sci-fi lovers the world round.
Premiere Date: December 25, 2016 on BBC and BBC America
The Great Wall
Yes, this is that movie that got a lot of bad press for hiring Matt Damon to lead in a story set in Ancient China. The story has become a little clearer with this newest revelation — the Great Wall of China is keeping at bay a legion of monsters that would destroy the world. Matt Damon’s character comes along the Silk Road in order to trade but finds himself in the midst of the conflict. Jing Tian of the new upcoming Pacific Rim: Maelstrom will also take part in this monster vs. man story.

Danny Rand returns home after 15 years of being missing, attempting to take back his family’s company. But he’s come back with more than just a few years under his belt — he has the power of the Iron Fist and years of training with Buddhist monks. Jessica Henwick, David Denham, and Jessica Stroup round out the cast, and there will be appearances by Rosario Dawson as Claire Tempe and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. It is the final solo series leading up to the four New York City superheroes (Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones as the other three) before The Defenders comes out sometime in 2017.
Premiere Date: March 17, 2017 on Netflix
John Wick: Chapter 2
Returning to the role that revitalized his career, Keanu Reeves takes on more bad guys in the sequel to the stylish shoot-em-up thriller. Wick comes out of retirement because of a blood oath to help a friend seize control of an international assassin’s guild. The film is set in gorgeous Rome and the action is going to be classier (and deadlier) than ever.
Premiere Date: February 10, 2017 in major theaters
Legends of the Hidden Temple: The Movie
Based on the beloved Nickelodeon gameshow from the 1990s, this TV movie finds three kids trapped in the Temple and have to complete the challenge, get the pieces of the token, and past the warriors to get home. It’s only going to be a true adaptation if they have to rebuild that stupid golden monkey no ever seen figured out on the first try.
Premiere Date: November 26, 2016 on Nickelodeon
The Man in the High Castle Season 2
Who is The Man in the High Castle, creating films that mirror our universe? That’s just one of the many questions that linger as this Emmy-award-winning show moves into its second season. We see the characters continue to move through the invaded U.S. both trying to escape the tyranny of the government and uncertainty of the resistance. But with Japan and Germany about to break their peaceful existence, there might be more at stake in protecting the films than ever before. And what about the cliffhanger last episode — will we see our characters in a world where we have the spoils (and horrors) of an Allied victory instead?
Premiere Date: December 16, 2016 on Amazon Prime
Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe
Valiant Comics is joining the cinematic universe bandwagon with this first web series, following the adventures of MI-6 assassin Ninjak as he takes on the various villains and works with the many heroes of the Valiant pantheon. Starring Michael Rowe, Jason David Frank, and Kevin Porter, the series will be just one of many new online series from the comics publisher.
Premiere Date: Late 2017 Online
Outcast Season 2
What’s there to do after a massive possession outbreak but try and rebuild your life? That’s what Kyle and Amber are trying to do, but it seems there’s still something fishy happening in Rome, West Virginia. But really, we’d watch anything with Robert Kirkman’s name attached to it, especially when it comes to the terrifying things that go bump in the night.
Premiere Date: Sometime in 2017 on Cinemax
In the days in which everything is getting a gritty reboot, it was no surprise that the nostalgic super hit that is Power Rangers would see a new heyday. Five teenagers take the mantle of the Dino-Rangers from the 1990s, but with newly designed suits and morphers and with a tinge more teen angst than the original. Whether or not this will jumpstart a new era of Power Rangers popularity is anyone’s guess, but it’s worth noting that there’s still some signature campiness showing through the grit.
Premiere Date: March 24, 2017 in major theaters
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
It only took 15 years to get to the sixth and final film of the Resident Evil film franchise, but we’re finally at the end of the story. Miller Jovovich takes on the world once more as Alice, returning to Raccoon City in an effort to end the zombie-nightmare-hellscape where it began. Will there finally be an antidote to the T-Virus? And more importantly, how many humans are even left after six of these movies?
Premiere Date: January 27, 2017 in major theaters in the U.S. (December 2016 Japan)
Shadowhunters Season 2
Based on the popular The Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare, the story follows high school student Clary as she takes on the role of being a Shadowhunter, a being with angelic blood that hunts down demons to protect humanity. Having finally been reunited with her mother at the end of Season 1, there’s still more fighting ahead as Valentine begins to raise an army with Jace at his side.
Premiere Date: January 2, 2017 on Freeform
Stan Against Evil
What would happen if Supernatural and Evil Dead had a baby and cast John C. McGinley? It would be Stan Against Evil, a new IFC show that follows widower and sheriff Stan Miller as demons take over his town. With co-stars Janet Varney, Deborah Baker Jr., and Nate Mooney, the comedy is meant to be a more lighthearted take on the supernatural fare that’s been dominating the airwaves recently. More than anything, fans are looking to get enjoy some of that same gruffness that so many loved from McGinley’s performance in Scrubs.
Premiere Date: November 2, 2016 on IFC
Created by the great Guillermo del Toro and featuring voice work from the late Anton Yelchin, Trollhunters follows the story of Jim Lake, who finds a special amulet that makes him the Troll Hunter, protector of both the human and troll worlds. This computer-animated show is a collaboration between DreamWork’s Animation and Cha Cha Cha Films. There is no news yet as to whether Yelchin’s role will be re-cast or if the character will be changed, though this assumes the show will go on to have a second season.
Premiere Date: December 23, 2016 on Netflix
Underworld: Blood Wars
The war between vampires and lycans continues, and Selene, our favorite leather-coat-wearing, gun-toting badass is trying to bring an end to the conflict to protect her daughter. In a franchise that’s as much Matrix as it is Interview With A Vampire, fans can look forward to beautiful people on motorcycles, a new female antagonist looking to take over the coven, and, since Selene gets a power upgrade, bigger and better action scenes.
Premiere Date: January 6, 2017 in major theaters
The Walking Dead Season 7
More clip than trailer, we get to see one of the most highly anticipated characters, bat-and-barbed-wire-wielding Negan. Rick threatens him, but unfazed, Negan goes into a speech about having a right hand man before dragging him into his trailer, potentially to kill him. Fans are wondering if the blood on Rick’s face means that someone has been killed to his right, and if that person was Rick’s “right hand man.” Answers will have to wait until later this month!
Premiere Date: October 23, 2016 on AMC
War for the Planet of the Apes
The third film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes series, we get a hint of Caesar’s further evolution as he now speaks in full sentences. There’s little known about how the war itself, and if it’ll be the last great battle between humanity and ape-kind before the planet is reclaimed, but the teaser seems to promise that winter is coming.
Premiere Date: July 14, 2017 in all major theaters
