The Making Of Eternals: Marvel Studios Assembled (Disney+, 3:01 a.m.): The next installment of Marvel Studios Assembled takes viewers behind the scenes of last year’s big-budget feature Eternals, which is currently streaming on the site.
Chloé Zhao directed the picture, which starred Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Don Lee, and Kumail Nanjiani.
Eternals follows members of an immortal extraterrestrial civilization as they emerge from centuries of concealment to defend Earth against their old adversaries, the Deviants. The Making Of Eternals will focus on the film’s special effects and include interviews with the actors and crew.
A.A. Dowd wrote in his review of the film, “Eternals leaps through time, flashing back from the present day to scenes from 7,000 years ago; half a century after 2001: A Space Odyssey, blockbusters are now counting on audiences to follow the eon-spanning transition from the thrown femur to spacecraft repeatedly.”
A casual spectator would ask where these big hitters were when the Avengers needed them. The film handles this, uncomfortably squeezing in references to franchise kin.”
