The photoshoot comes as Eternals was branded 'disappointing' and 'ultimately unmemorable' by critics in first reviews of the hotly anticipated MCU blockbuster.
The superhero flick, directed by Oscar-winning Nomadland star Chloe Zhao, was lambasted by critics over its 'miserably undernourished' script, deluge of underdeveloped characters and 'overloaded' storyline.
Critics were torn as the 'refreshingly diverse' cast of characters resulted in a group of 'navel-gazing superheroes' that signalled 'two steps forwards for representation but three steps backwards for dramatic ingenuity.'

The cast includes MCU's first deaf superhero (Lauren Ridloff as Makkari) and its first openly gay superhero (Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos) who shares the franchise's first onscreen same-sex kiss with Haaz Sleiman, ficken who plays his husband.
critic Kevin Maher gave the film two stars and took aim at the 157-minute flick's script and its 'strange self-sabotaging energy.'
He wrote: 'It is the characters, however, who represent the biggest shift away from the swaggering, mostly white, mostly male, mostly straight, mostly neurotypical and mostly hearing ensembles (think Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, etc) that have defined the Marvel brand thus far.'

Adding the 'reinvented heroes work' he continued: 'But they are also, to paraphrase Pirandello, ten characters in search of a script. Because the one they have now, co-written by Chloé Zhao, the director (Nomadland), is derivative, messy and miserably undernourished.
'Eternals is two steps forwards for representation but three steps backwards for dramatic ingenuity.
critic Owen Gleiberman branded the film a 'disappointment' over lacking the 'raw and real' signature quality Zhao has brought to her other films.

He wrote: 'Yet as I approached Eternals, the question I was most curious about was whether Zhao, who in Nomadland and The Rider defined her filmmaking style in a unique poetic way, would carry any remnants of that mode over to the blockbuster universe... Eternals has none of that. It's clear that that's something of a disappointment.
He added the film feels 'very standard' in comparison to 'top-tier' team superhero films (the first Guardians of the Galaxy, Zack Snyder's Justice League, and 'Avengers: Infinity War) and that the film 'never transcends its conventionality'
He did however laud the diversity of the cast, writing: 'Four of the Eternals are white, three are Asian, two are Black, and one is Latina. One is gay, one is deaf, and one is an androgynous tween who never grows up.
Oh dear: The photoshoot comes as Eternals was branded 'disappointing' and 'ultimately unmemorable' by critics in first reviews of the hotly anticipated MCU blockbuster (above Angelina as Thena in the film)
Wow: The film sees the Eternals come out of hiding to protect Earth from their evil counterparts, the Deviants - and features a star-studded cast including Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan and Richard Madden (pictured on Sunday with director Chloe Zhao)

It is official, Angelina Jolie has stolen the show at the Rome Film Festival...
From her custom Ralph Lauren classic cape detailed design to her ethereal ensemble hailing from Balmain Resort'22, she has been providing us with all the inspo since returning to the red carpet.
The dress which is the ultimate showstopper, however, is her latest lewk which sculpted her in a high shine silver second skin. Adding to her rails of luxury garms galore, this one is another custom creation, and is by Italian Fashion House Versace's Atelier.
From the metallic material that looks quite simply out of this world to the draped detail to extenuates her svelte silhouette, stylist Jason Bolden deserves kudos for making her shine, literally!
Unfortunately, unlike Angelina, we are don't have high fashion's finest at our fingertips, so cannot ask Donatella for our own design. You can still explore the Atelier collection here to take style notes.
Or head to our silver shaded selections in the carousel to get ready for party season. From a £5.00 absolute steal at Hidden Fashion, you will have no excuse...
