ENJOY THE SHOW
Going by both the red band trailer and much more tame green band trailer, all sorts of hell will be unleashed upon Hollywood in This is the End, the apocalyptic comedy from writers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. There's been glimpses of aliens, weird creatues, giant pits, and tons of fire, and now some religious terror in a red band TV spot. A creature from hell shows up and it looks like one of the guys ends up getting possessed by Satan or at least some sort of demonic force. Between this and The World's End, the apocalypse is going to rule comedy in theaters this summer, and we're pretty happy about that. Watch now!
"Can you imagine how people on this planet would react if they knew there was someone like this out there?" The previous Man of Steel trailers have highlighted Clark Kent's struggle with his alien powers and whether or not he should reveal his secret to humankind, beginning with saving his classmates in a school bus accident. Now this new TV spot highlights this same struggle as a grown man, with military cautiously pointing their arms at him, and Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) explaining the eventual ultimatum, "whether to stand proud in front of the human race, or not." Every little new bit in these spots just keeps looking better.
With the action of Iron Man 3 in our past, the next blockbuster coming from the page of comic books arrives in June with Man of Steel. Each new TV spot shows just a little more of this epic superhero reboot, and it keeps looking better and better. Unfortunately, a new TV spot from the UK is a little bit tricky and uses a Yahoo Movies pull quote, seemingly from a positive review, when it's really from a summer preview article. Meanwhile, another strange spot is an ad made in conjunction with the National Guard, using the moniker "Soldier of Steel" to recruit interested parties. At the very least, there's some cool new footage. Watch now!
We're just over a month from seeing the return of Superman to the big screen in Man of Steel from director Zack Snyder. Everything we've seen from the anticipated film so far has been spectacular, and the trend continues with this new TV spot. But this time, we finally get a glimpse of Supes (Henry Cavill) in action, and he even has Lois Lane (Amy Adams) in his arms this time, flying away from some unseen danger. Plus, there's some cool new shots of General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Jor-El (Russell Crowe). As a bonus, we've also got a new banner featuring a very heroic shot of Superman. Look below!
Next month we'll see if a man can fly again when Man of Steel hits theaters, and if the most recent trailer is any indicator, we're in for one hell of a ride. Henry Cavill certainly looks the part of Superman, but so far the marketing hasn't given away too much of his action as The Big Blue Boy Scout. Sure there's been shots of some epic sequences, but so far, the lid is being kept tight on Superman. Even this new TV spot only showcases a few brief seconds of the hero all suited up. Meanwhile, Russell Crowe as Jor-El shines with voiceover in this spot as he speaks about the potential for his son Kal-El on the planet Earth. Watch below!
We've already seen a couple promos for Star Trek Into Darkness featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as villain John Harrison, dissecting the characters of James T. Kirk and Spock, and now it's time for someone else to get the spotlight. This time it's Uhura (Zoe Saldana) under Harrison's microscope, but there's more than just menacing voiceover. There's also a brief appearance of Klingons. And while we've seen some images of them with their masks/helmets, this is the first time we see them without obstruction. It remains to be seen if the ridges will vary character to character like the TV series or if all the Klingons have similar facial features. Either way, the promo and two new TV spots are just fuel for our excitement. Watch below!
Now that the story has been laid out in the second trailer for The Hangover Part III, it's time for the TV spots to keep awareness for the conclusion in the comedy franchise alive. This time we've got some new footage featuring Heather Graham reprising her role as Stu's (Ed Helms) stripper ex-wife, which likely means her kid Carlos is back as well, and some height and pants-peeing problems for Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Just exactly how will The Wolf Pack and characters like Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) fare in this final chapter of chaos from director Todd Phillips? We'll find out in theaters later this month. Watch!
Though the first trailer for the summer blockbuster from Guillermo del Toro was a little bit divisive, there are still plenty of people excited about Pacific Rim. It's hard not to at least be interested in a film about giant robots fighting a bunch of huge, destructive monsters, especially when del Toro is the man bringing the story to life. The only thing that might work against the film at this point is a lack of an all-star cast. However, Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Clifton Collins Jr. are hardly talents to be scoffed at. Anyway, the first international TV spot has arrived, and it's basically a condensed form of the first trailer, but we're still pretty pumped for this flick. Watch!
Nothing can prepare you for the Darkness. Along with the (rather pointless) MTV Movie Awards this past weekend, Hollywood brought in a few new movie trailers and TV spots for a few of their upcoming summer movies. One of them in the spotlight is Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams' sci-fi sequel reuniting us with the intrepid Enterprise crew, lead by Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock and Zoe Saldana as Uhura (plus Bones, Chekov, Sulu and Scotty - not seen). In addition to a new TV spot for Into Darkness, featuring a few fly-at-you phrases, a set of four character posters showing the aforementioned crew members plus Benedict Cumberbatch have been unveiled. They're definitely selling the gritty side.
"Son, do you know where we are? This is Earth." As far as I can tell, I'm one of the few still excited for this sci-fi movie After Earth, but I think it looks cool and is a unique idea. Thanks to the MTV Movie Awards tonight, a new TV spot has just appeared for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, co-written by Gary Whitta, starring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. We've seen a couple of full trailers already and have an idea of what to expect with this, but they're finally showing one of the big bug-alien creatures in this (above), and I'm more than intrigued. What in the heck is that? Looking forward to finding out this summer.
Since the last poster for Star Trek Into Darkness gave the spotlight to Benedict Cumberbatch as villain John Harrison, it's time for the heroes to take a stand again. A big banner for the sequel from director J.J. Abrams has just popped up, and it's a bit similar to the poster than debuted with the international trailer. It uses slightly different images for Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Cumberbatch, but just flips the shot of Zachary Quinto. The color scheme is the same, and while these images individually aren't bad, slapped together like this looks cheap. But at least there's a cool new TV spot to check out too.
"I can reach out and break you whenever I want." Though we've seen plenty of action in the Super Bowl spot, theatrical trailer and extended first look for Fast and Furious 6, what we haven't seen is much of the villain played by Luke Evans. But that changes with this extended TV spot from the United Kingdom where Evans puts his intimidation face on and gives Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and the rest of the crew a run for their money. The action beats are mostly the same, but as many times as I've seen the trailer in the theaters, I'm not sick of it yet. Hopefully the movie delivers in theaters next month.
While a new full length trailer for The Lone Ranger is slated to debut on April 17th next week, the first TV spot has some new footage to show off. This one is certainly action-packed, with plenty of bits we haven't seen before. Helena Bonham Carter gets some more screentime along with a specially equipped boot that could prove to be deadly in the pub. But the real star this time seems to be Armie Hammer as the titular hero as he rides his trusty steed Silver along the top of a train as it barrels into a tunnel. It feels like we've been waiting forever for this flick to come out, and now I just want to if it's good or not. Watch below!
"Whoever that man is, is going to change the world." Is the world ready? Warner Bros decided to unleash the first 30-second TV spot for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel during the first NCAA championship game tonight. It doesn't really contain any new footage that we haven't seen in the two fantastic trailers we've seen (and there's another one coming very soon) but it is good to see them pushing this to the mainstream public in the fully epic way. Plus, I love the shots they did use in this anyway, and the line "that the world wasn't ready... what do you think?" Oh this will definitely build some buzz. See it below.
