ENJOY THE SHOW
"Every 5,000 years, the worlds align, allowing an ancient darkness to strike." Last night brought the second episode of Marvel's new TV series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and with it came a reference to the God of Thunder himself and his hammer. But other than that, a new one-minute TV spot arrived for Thor: The Dark World, this time featuring more of the destruction from the dark elves and some new action with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). And for those who enjoy the humorous side, Kat Dennings gets an amusing exchange with our hero at the end. Watch!
"I saw you with The Avengers." In the teaser trailer and theatrical trailer for Thor: The Dark World, we've seen that Thor is reunited with his human love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) after the god of thunder was seemingly unable to return to Earth until he came to claim his brother Loki in The Avengers. But now that he's back on Earth, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has some questions to answer because Ms. Foster saw him fighting alongside The Avengers in a new TV spot. It's an amusing moment, but I hope there's not overwhelming silly humor like this and Alan Taylor keeps the focus on the epic side of things.
It's fall, and we're getting close to Halloween and all things horror and terror. That means the hype machine for the October horror releases is in full swing, and this time it's the remake of Carrie from Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce in the spotlight. A new TV spot has just debuted showing off this new Carrie, brought to life by Chloe Moretz, complete with more intense and scary telekinetic powers. Though the trailers have basically laid out the whole story, we're betting it's Carrie's freak out and performances that makes the familiar story entertaining. Plus, this TV spot reveals the remake is R-rated. That's cool to hear.
"Your bravery will not ease your pain." The last extended TV spot showed the chief villain Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) threatening Thor, and now a new TV spot shows more of the destruction coming for Earth and Asgard. This one jumps around a lot showing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in action, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) doing what he does best, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) in trouble, and plenty of dark elves giving them trouble. The sequel is just over a month away with a debut on IMAX screens at the end of October before hitting all theaters in November. We can't wait to see more of Marvel's Phase Two!
There's a lot of good stuff for Ron Burgundy coming down the pipeline. Judd Apatow and Adam McKay are hosting a live reading of the original film's script featuring Will Ferrell and the Channel 4 News Team in November, and there's a memoir from our favorite news anchor coming later that same month. Now following the first full trailer for the comedy sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, here's a promo that is making the rounds across the pond. It features Ron Burgundy talking about the Goodwood Revival, the 3-day classic racing festival happening this weekend which sparks sexual innuendo. Watch!
Following the unveiling of the Borat inspired spin-off Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, featuring Johnny Knoxville in make-up as 86 year-old Irving Zisman, some new public service announcements for National Grandparents Day have been unveiled. Knoxville appears as Zisman with some advice about safe sex, prostate awareness and the nice gesture of an in-home massage, all for the grandparents out there just like Zisman. This movie just might bring Jackass back to the forefront of big screen comedy, which isn't surprising after three successful big screen ventures before. This may even spawn a spin-off sequel. Watch!
The most recent trailer and posters for Thor: The Dark World give us a revealing look at just how prominent the god of thunder's mischievous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be featured in the Marvel sequel. It makes us wonder if losing the Battle of Manhattan wasn't just a conveniently destructive ruse to get back to Asgard. Now a new TV spot gives us a little more Loki, some Heimdall (Idris Elba) and a taste of the destruction that's coming towards Asgard, where Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has brought his human love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Plus, our main villain Malekith, played by Christopher Eccelston, can be heard taunting Thor and his family, and he's certainly not messing around. Watch it!
A new quick teaser for Don Jon, the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, popped up earlier this month showcasing the lead actor's bombastic character in the film, along with a reunion with Tony Danza as his father. Now a new TV spot is here that gets pretty saucy with Scarlett Johansson's sultry New Jersey princess character making out fiercely with Gordon-Levitt, but not offering any real satisfactory end. It's a big tease, pretty much like anytime we see a sexy Scarlett Johansson on the big screen and she's not waiting for us when we get home. The same could be same for anyone who has eyes on Gordon-Levitt too.
"Someone has to make him talk, or they're gunna die!" Warner Bros has unveiled a new extended TV spot for Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners, the kidnapping drama starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. We've featured a couple of stellar trailers for this film already, but the more they show, the more intense things get and the more I want to see this. Paul Dano as the suspect looks perfect, in the same way Stanley Tucci was perfectly cast in The Lovely Bones. And I keep forgetting Terrence Howard is in this, but when he says "what in the world did you do?!" I get chills. The way this TV spots ends will make you go: "damn!"
Following the most recent trailer for RED 2, the action ensemble starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and more looks like it's going to be a great blast later this summer. In fact, Summit Entertainment has already hired franchise writers Jon and Erich Hoeber to start working on the script for RED 3. But we still have a few weeks before RED 2 hits theaters, and the marketing team has cleverly used the headline making news about the NSA phone call monitoring system and President Obama's speech reacting to the revelation in a new TV spot for the film. Hopefully the sequel delivers the goods. Watch now!
When darkness falls, the battle begins. I can't help it, I'm incredibly excited for this even though I've heard the production was a mess, but that doesn't matter. This looks like the kind of Riddick throwback that Pitch Black was and I hope it's just as good, or at least just as entertaining. To keep fans excited leading into Comic-Con, Vin Diesel has posted the very first 30-second TV spot for Riddick, the latest sequel in the Chronicles of Riddick sci-fi franchise. It uses a lot of the same footage we've seen in recent trailers already, but there's still some awesome shots and sci-fi action I'm anxiously awaiting to see on the big screen. Enjoy!
"There's no coming back from this." More, more, more! We've featured one TV spot before, but have been waiting for Sony to unleash more TV spots for Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi Elysium. We still have over a month until this hits theaters, but it's getting closer and closer every day. This new TV spot jumps ahead in the storyline with Matt Damon compared to the other two full-length trailers we've seen so far, but still packs a punch. There isn't really much new footage to be seen, but it's all about the energy and idea behind this new sci-fi. My most anticipated movie left to see this summer. Fire up the latest 30-second spot below!
With just over a couple weeks until release, the hype machine for Pacific Rim is wrapping up, and one of the final touches is this extended, 2-minute TV spot with plenty of action. It's getting to the point that if you're not convinced that the new film from Guillermo del Toro is something to be witnessed on the big screen, then it's a lost cause. Plus, for the music fans, the title theme track from the film's soundtrack from composer Ramin Djawadi and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello (the two collaborated on the original Iron Man soundtrack) has just been unveiled, and it's quite an epic orchestral rock track.
Though the first trailer for Elysium was certainly intriguing, we've heard it wasn't nearly as breathtaking or impressive as the 10-minutes of footage Sony showed to select audiences just before the trailer was unveiled (read Alex Billington's recap of the event here). Now the first TV spot is here with some more footage from the anticipated film from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp. It doesn't give much away about the plot other that Matt Damon breaking into the paradise known as Elysium, but there's a bad ass shot of Sharlto Copley as the film's villain, and some great visual effects that look quite gorgeous. Watch!
