Eternals, Marvel’s latest addition to the cinematic universe, is almost here! November 5th is the official release into theaters, but Monday was the world premiere. Specially picked fans, celebrities, cast, critics, and icons attended the event. The reviews are in and people have voiced their opinions! 

The movie started filming in July of 2019 and has been highly anticipated. According to fans the movie will be insane, dive into brand new topics, and stray away from what we know and love, inventing something new. Some of the cast includes Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanijiani, Lai McHugh, Briam Tryee Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, and Salma Hayek.

The first reviews claim the movie to be the ‘most ambitious Marvel Movie ever made’. This is thanks to the director Chloé Zhao and her “superb direction” of the MCU’s upcoming film (ENTERTAINMENTWEEKLY). 

Just to get a picture of the impact the film had on the early viewers, here are some of their reviews: 

“#Eternals is the most un-#MCU film to date – so much so that it feels like a different franchise! Very interested to see how #Marvel fans react to that…”(Grace Randolph). 

“#Eternals is amazing! Chloé Zhao & company turn in an evocative, emotional, extraordinarily epic superhero film. The ensemble have great chemistry & all get big Movie Moments to showcase their prowess. The naturalism of Ben Davis’ cinematography spotlights characters’ humanity” (Courtney Howard). 

“#Eternals, wow! A lot to unpack. If Marvel movies are a Venn diagram — variations within that overlap — this movie is off the charts. Hands down the most different of any of their films” (Aaron Couch). 

“#Eternals is probably the most shocking and surprising Marvel movie you’ll see. Many twists and turns. Kumail Nanjiani Is hilarious in every scene. As always, stay to the VERY end” (KirstenAcuna). 

“Fresh off her Oscar win, Chloé Zhao doesn’t miss a step with Marvel’s #Eternals. Eternals is one of the most visually stunning comic films we’ve seen. Zhao has a great eye for detail and we see that with her set pieces and character designs which pay homage to the comics” (GeekVibesNation). 

Without a doubt, this movie is going to be action-packed, emotional, thrilling, exciting, and a whole experience. One student, Hana Elfiky (9), shares that “[she] is so excited to finally watch Eternals! [She] feels like [she] has been waiting centuries for it to finally come out. [She] will be “going to see it in theaters as soon as it comes out.”

Make sure to go see the movie for yourself in theaters on November 5th to see if the reviews are true! With all of the hype already circulating the internet, Eternals is a must watch.
