Geekiary News Briefs! Attack on Titan Trailer, Captain Underpants, Alien: Covenant, and More!

Attack on Titan Season 2 Beast Titant

Welcome to today’s Geekiary Briefs! We’ll be sharing trailers for Attack on Titan Season 2 and Alien: Covenant, news about Rogue One, and more!

Shazam is still a couple of years away, but that hasn’t stopped Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill from giving fans a treat this week. Both actors shared a picture that ensures fans that the wait isn’t in vain. Shazam is targeting a 2019 release and is set in Warner Bros’ current DC Cinematic Universe.

New releases couldn’t knock Rogue One down from the box office. The first Star Wars stand-alone film has been able to collect $523.8 million worldwide. The domestic numbers stand at $286.4 million. New releases Assassin’s Creed and Passengers didn’t fare well and collected $22.5 million and $30.4 million respectively. I’m surprised that Passengers was even able to make this much considering the kind of plot it has. (via CBR)

A trailer for the second season of the hugely popular Attack on Titan anime has been released. The episodes will air in spring of 2017. Check it out!

A trailer for Alien: Covenant has also been released. Here’s the official synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Alien: Covenant has a May 19, 2017, release date. Check out the trailer!
