First TV Spot for 'War for the Planet of the Apes' Announces a Contest

War for the Planet of the Apes

"Simply submit a video of your most life-like ape imitation." 20th Century Fox has unveiled a TV spot for the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes sequel, but it's actually more of an announcement for a contest they're hosting to win a walk-on role. The TV spot features only behind-the-scenes footage of the film currently shooting, since it's a major production and they just started a month ago (and it doesn't come out until 2017). Actor/filmmaker Andy Serkis, who plays Caesar, joins director Matt Reeves in the video to introduce the contest and remind everyone that the next Apes movie is already in production. One winner will receive a chance to come to set, wear a suit and actually become an ape in the movie. That's awesome.

More New Footage in Latest 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' TV Spot

Star Wars TV Spot

"What I've seen… we all need to run." This TV spot is all about Finn, and boy oh boy does this look amazing. We're past the point where I suggest not to watch if you want to go in as fresh as possible, because more and more footage is showing up online every day. Lucasfilm's latest 30-second TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens features Finn, played by John Boyega, preparing to battle a one of the new First Order stormtroopers. There's also another awesome shot of Han, played by Harrison Ford, talking with Finn about how he's not yet ready, plus some cool shots of Chewie and BB-8. One month to go if you can hold on.

Kylo Ren's Lightsaber Explained + New 'The Force Awakens' TV Spot

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

"There are stories about what happened…" Get ready! It's almost here. If there was a time when I'd say we're starting to see too much from Star Wars, this is it. This is the TV spot where it starts to feel like, you know what, better to save the rest of it for the movie theater in just about a month. This fourth TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, includes even more new footage showing another temple and an awesome shot of John Boyega in the Falcon, along with Daisy Ridley piloting it. In addition, a photo was posted via Reddit of a display at Disneyland that describes the details behind the villain Kylo Ren's red lightsaber. This was a big argument for a while, and this kind of settles it. Have at it.

Watch: Short International TV Spot for Duncan Jones 'Warcraft' Movie

Warcraft Movie

For the Horde! Take another look at this upcoming video game adaptation from director Duncan Jones. Legendary has released the first international TV spot for the epic Warcraft movie, which is promoting a full international trailer debut. There are a few bits and pieces of new footage in this compared to the full trailer which hit last week. This movie is finally being revealed to the public in a very big way after they've been quietly working on it for over a year, and reactions seem mixed so far. Warcraft stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown. I actually like this more than the other trailer, it plays more dramatic, more epic. Check it.

Another 'The Force Awakens' TV Spot Teases Finn & Rey's Friendship

Star Wars TV Spot

"Nothing will stand in our way. I'll show them the Dark Side." One more TV spot with some fresh footage for those who are still watching. Lucasfilm debuted this TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, during primtetime last night featuring a few bits of footage. More than anything this focuses on the friendship that we'll see grow between Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, and Finn, played by John Boyega. There's also an awesome moment where Han hands Rey a lightsaber, and that's not revealing much beyond hinting where this story might be going. I also love the flute theme at the beginning of this spot, so lovely. I get chills the more we see! Only a few more weeks to go until The Force reawakens.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV Spot

"Follow me." Wow! They're really letting the cat out of the bag now that we have less than six weeks to go until release. Disney has unveiled an exciting 30-sec TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and surprise, surprise - it has a lot of new footage that we haven't seen before. New footage not shown in any of the earlier trailers, the most recent official trailer, or even the new Japanese trailer. Some new shots of Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, kicking ass on Jakku. Some extra shots of the Falcon in flight. A new shot of Han, played by Harrison Ford, on a snow planet. Could that be Hoth? We'll know for sure soon enough. Enjoy.

One More Epic Finale TV Spot for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2'

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 - Epic Finale TV Spot

"You've given them an opportunity - people want to fight!" With only a few more weeks left to go, Lionsgate has unleashed an "epic finale" TV spot for Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2. This first aired during the World Series on TV and is now online for your viewing. Mockingjay - Part 2 is the all-out grand finale for this series, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, the girl who lead the revolution to overthrow the Capitol. This really does look epic, with more action and even sci-fi elements popping up all over. I really, truly hope we see her bring down the Capitol in an all out war, because that's what this has all be leading towards, and that's what I want to see. It's time to finally put an end to Snow.

'He's On His Own' - Latest TV Spots for Mendes' New Bond 'Spectre'

Spectre TV Spots

"Look around you, James… everything you ever stood for… a ruin!" Sony Pictures has unveiled two kick ass, action-packed new TV spots for the next Bond movie Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The most recent spot just debuted this weekend, and will likely be showing on TV in primetime spots starting this week. This looks so amazing and I really can't wait to see it, Bond at his best with lots of characters and twisted plots and a formidable villain. I'm still very curious to see whether Christoph Waltz is who we all think he is, and why Léa Seydoux is so important she's always with Bond, or if there is someone else hiding in the shadows running SPECTRE. Only a few weeks left until we find out.

Watch: First TV Spot for 'Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension'

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

Witness the power… of the activity! Paramount has debuted the first short TV spot for Gregory Plotkin's Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the latest sequel in the never-ending Paranormal Activity horror franchise. The hint is that this is supposed to be the end of it all, finale, and they're going all out by making it in 3D. Oh boy. The cast includes Chris J. Murray, Brit Shaw, Ivy George, Dan Gill and Chloe Csengery. This looks like they're really trying to go all out and scare the crap out of everyone with cheesy FX, and intense violence, but why not if it's truly the last one. Hide under the covers and watch.

New TV Spot + Poster Unveiled for Ryan Coogler's Upcoming 'Creed'

Ryan Coogler Creed

"Your father was special. I don't know if you are." Warner Bros has unveiled a new TV spot, the first spot for this movie, as well as the official poster for Ryan Coogler's Creed. This boxing drama stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, Apollo's son, who decides to step back into the ring and live up to his father's legacy. Sylvester Stallone also stars, along with Graham McTavish, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris and Phylicia Rashad. After two excellent trailers so far this is one of my most anticipated films left to see this year. The poster seems to be lacking, very basic and unexciting, but I'm not worried about the film living up to expectations. I've got high hopes for Ryan Coogler, with this film and beyond. In theaters in two months.

Watch: Daniel Craig's 007 Escapes by Boat in New Heineken TV Spot

James Bond - Heineken Boat Escape

Open Your World. This is for Bond fans, and just because it's awesome. Yes, it's shameless advertising being plugged for no other reason than it's cool. But it's such a cool video, and I'm a Bond nerd so I can't help but feature it. Heineken has debuted their latest TV commercial as a tie-in promotion for Spectre, the 24th Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. Craig stars in this short 90 second spot as 007 escaping by boat, and of course because it's Heineken, they make it fun and toss in a lovely lady who gets pulled in (literally). They made one of these for Skyfall too (also below), but this one is perhaps a bit better. Enjoy!

Watch: New 'I'm Alive' TV Spot for Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi 'The Martian'

The Martian TV Spot

"I'll never stop fighting to make it home." This is easily one of my most anticipated movies coming up this fall, so I'm happy to keep posting some cool promos. This time it's another new TV spot (following the latest trailer) for Ridley Scott's sci-fi The Martian, starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney, and the spot comes in at 60 seconds. There's lots of new footage, lots of old footage, everything together making this look absolutely amazing. Of course, we should be cautiously optimistic since it is Ridley Scott, but at least there are some cool FX, and Watney's story seems worth exploring. Co-starring Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor. Enjoy.

First International TV Spot for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Arrives

"There has been an awakening… have you felt it?" We're getting closer and closer. As of today, there's officially 130 days left until J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out playing in theaters worldwide. The countdown is on! Tickets will be on sale in the next few months. This new TV spot features a few seconds of new footage, but not too much more. We've already seen behind-the-scenes footage and two teasers so far for the Force Awakens, so more is expected to be revealed soon (especially as Disney gets closer to their D23 convention). Daisy Ridley as Ren is featured prominently in this, along with a new shot of Supreme Leader Snoke's courtyard and some of the teaser shots. Only a few more months to go! Enjoy.
