What’s New: Civil War, The Sympathizer, The Watchers, Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 2

by Neil Bui

Pop culture is a never-ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is Dorkaholics’ way to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, the focus is on Civil War, The Sympathizer, The Watchers, and Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 2.

  1. Civil War: Second Trailer

With this year being an election year, would it be appropriate to consider Civil War a horror film that depicts the unrest our nation might go through if another election erupts in unrest?

Release Date: In theaters April 12, 2024

Synopsis: A race to the White House in a near-future America balanced on the razor’s edge.

  1. The Sympathizer: Second Teaser

The second teaser for The Sympathizer is out now and reveals more of the complex situation our protagonist finds himself in as a spy being asked to spy on the people who first asked him to spy. Try wrapping your head around that one. The inclusion and utilization of Vietnamese dialogue helps instill an authentic sense of the Vietnamese experience, as the film has me reflecting upon what it means to be Vietnamese, or even more broadly a person loyal to their country, especially in the face of changing times and evolving history following revolutions of sorts.

Release Date: Premieres on Max April 14, 2024

Synopsis: Near the end of the Vietnam War, a plant who was embedded in the South Vietnam army flees to the United States and takes up residence in a refugee community, where he continues to secretly spy and report back to the Viet Cong.

  1. The Watchers: Teaser Trailer

Ishana Night Shyamalan, daughter of M. Night Shyamalan, is making her directorial debut with The Watchers. The trailer is simply jarring through its use of interspersing foreboding and ominous tones tied to moving throughout a deep and dark forest, against peaceful, operatic music with characters safe within a shelter of sorts. The trailer makes it clear that the title of the film refers to a group our characters are in fear of, but it’s hard to say with certainty what their familiarity or even relation may be.

Release Date: In theaters June 7, 2024

Synopsis: A young artist gets stranded in an extensive, immaculate forest in western Ireland, where, after finding shelter, she becomes trapped alongside three strangers, stalked by mysterious creatures each night.

  1. Justice League: Crisis On Infinite Earths Part Two | Official Trailer

The trailer for the second film in the Justice League: Crisis On Infinite Earths trilogy is out now and highlights Psycho Pirate’s involvement, Supergirl’s pivotal role at the center of the Crisis, and infighting amongst the heroes united across different universes.

Release Date: TBA

Synopsis: Death is coming. Worse than death: oblivion. Not just for our Earth, but for everyone, everywhere, in every universe! Against this ultimate destruction, the mysterious Monitor has gathered the greatest team of Super Heroes ever assembled. But what can the combined might of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern and hundreds of Super Heroes from multiple Earths even do to save all of reality from an unstoppable antimatter armageddon?!
