We’re here to help! Look no further for your guide to all the best trailers from this past weekend!
Let’s kick it off with the trailers set for the smaller (sometimes larger than life) screen. Here are the best TV series trailers to hit the internet during the con!
Amazon Prime brought their new series Carnival Row to the con in full force. Not only did the cast make an appearance on Conan from the con, but they threw a large party Saturday night in which the cast danced with fans while dressed fully in animal costumes, revealing at the end of the night that it was them all along. Prime also released two new trailers for the series featuring a look at the main characters played by Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.

HBO was not about to be left behind from all the comic book fun of this 50th San Diego Comic-Con. A new trailer for the upcoming Watchmen series stunned the watchers of the Watchmen with new footage of all the new characters we’ll be introduced to when the show finally premieres in October. While the heroes and villains we remember from the graphic novel and film likely won’t all be present and accounted for, we do get a new host of vigilantes in an alternate Earth timeline from our own.
