The annual Licensing Expo is underway in Las Vegas. This is traditionally where we get our first look at the potential marketing materials, logos, and whatnot for tons of upcoming films and TV shows. As far as genres go, they run the gamut, but there is always a rather strong sci-fi showing in the house, and this year is no exception.
These images, from Coming Soon, feature things that are coming up on the schedule shortly, even a few movies and shows that we’ll actually see this summer, as well as things that are barely in the planning stages and that we won’t lay eyes on for years to come. But when has it ever been too early to get excited for an exciting science fiction project, or a new adaptation of a beloved property?
Because most of these projects are still in the working stage, they don’t usually offer much in the way of new information. In most cases, we see logos and little or nothing else. The biggest exception this year, however, is Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
The film takes place in a real, functioning theme park where there are actual dinosaurs, and these pieces appear to be posters or brochures that you would see if you were al visitor. You can imagine these, and similar works, appearing in the background of the movie. This is a cool look at the world building they’ll be doing.
And this standee with the T-Rex head coming after you is just plain awesome.
Doctor Who offers you a glimpse at new Time Lord Peter Capaldi…
…as well as a Dalek, that he’ll presumably square off with at some point when season eight premieres this August.
In case you forgot that there is a Thunderbirds remake is happening, this logo is here to remind you that it is indeed a go.
The Hunger Games franchise may be winding down, but they’re here to remind you that there are still two movies left before they wrap things up completely.
Just because it opens in less than two weeks doesn’t mean Transformers: Age of Extinction isn’t going to shill for all it’s worth.
With Arnold Schwarzenegger heading up a big name cast, it’s hard not to get excited about Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genesis, especially when you see these images and models of the titular robot himself.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, which will see a theatrical rerelease later this summer, as well as a new special edition Blu-ray release after that…
…and since we’re about to be neck deep in Avatar movies, we better start getting used to that idea.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes drops July 11, but from the look of things, we have even more from this rebooted world on the way in 2016.
Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain is set to be one of the creepiest additions to our regular TV viewing schedule this summer.
This year also marks the 35th of one of the best sci-fi and horror movies ever made, Ridley Scott’s Alien, and there are lots of fun things planned to commemorate this milestone this year.
And because no gallery of science fiction marketing would be complete without it, there are even a few touches from the Star Wars universe.
