"What you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you! You're a father…" Universal has debuted an extended 60-second TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the late technology innovator Steve Jobs. We've already seen two trailers for this already, but this new TV spot throws in some extra footage, including that line quoted at the start about how he's supposed to be a father (maybe they're focusing on that part of the story in the marketing more?). The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks outstanding.
There is strength in numbers. Fox has debuted yet another new TV spot for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four, to follow up the final trailer that hit earlier in the week. In this spot, we get a good glimpse of the Fantastic Four team - Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as The Thing. There's a shot of two of them locked up in some kind of plane, plus the line about "we're not the ones you should fear" and the angle that the US government is even afraid of these super-powered people. Not to mention the bad guy, Doom, played by Toby Kebbell. Enjoy.
"Bond, James Bond." A new TV spot has been uploaded online for James Bond's Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes, starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The teaser for Spectre didn't show much, and most of that footage is in here, but there's also a bit of some extra teases in this. And I really like what we're seeing. It starts with that interesting discussion with Naomie Harris, or Moneypenny, talking about how Bond has a secret he can't tell anyone. Then there's an appearance by Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, which is when he delivers that iconic line. Between Léa Seydoux and Bellucci, one of these two has to be working for the bad guy. Dave Bautista gets a quick appearance, though I'm sure more is coming soon in the next trailer.
"I own an island off the coast of Costa Rica…" With just a few more weeks left until Jurassic World hits theaters in June, Universal has started unloading TV spots left and right. One of the latest ones features a John Hammond (originally played by Richard Attenborough) voice-over, borrowing sound clips from the original Jurassic Park. They're really playing up that connection to the original, and pushing with "The Park Is Open" as the big tagline on every TV spot. Oddly, at one point they have Hammond to say "Welcome to Jurassic World!" So maybe they had someone else do his voice just for that part… Anyway, the rest of the footage is starting to look really good. Chris Pratt and those rapors! I am so ready for this. Bring on dinos.
Hold onto your butts!! This is getting wild! I have been hoping they would start showing some of the more jaw-dropping awesome footage from Jurassic World, and they finally are. Universal has debuted another new TV spot for Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic Park follow-up Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and one nasty Indominus Rex. This genetically-created dino seems to be the star of the movie, and you really see that in this spot, with so much footage of her raging all over. Ohh if only they could let it keep rolling and you'd see the people actually being eaten. Oh my! The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, BD Wong and plenty of others. Fire this one up, it's actually starting to look much better. Seriously! Check it.
If you're into boxing, then you probably know that there's a big fight heading into the ring this weekend with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao finally making good on the fight fans have wanted for years. But for those of us who only care about boxing when there's a compelling character with a story to be told in a motion picture, we have a new TV spot for Antoine Fuqua's forthcoming boxing drama Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal. In fact, this TV spot will actually air during the big fight this weekend, to hit the boxing audience at the perfect time. It's basically a condensed version of the trailer we've seen. Watch it!
"Skynet has created a new Terminator to stop us." After the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys gave away a pretty big plot twist for the franchise sequel, some international TV spots bring that twist to the forefront of the marketing in Asian markets. However, there's also some new bits of footage here, including shots of the aged Terminator (old Arnold Schwarzenegger) fighting with the Schwarzenegger from the 80s. In addition, we also get to see some more shots of the advanced Terminator coming to blows with Schwarzenegger. And they're still milking that "I'll be back," line for everything it's worth. Watch below!
"You go to high school in Inglewood. Think you're going to get into Harvard? Who do you think you are, huh?" Open Road has debuted a new TV spot for the upcoming release of one of our Sundance favorites, a little film called Dope, written/directed by Rick Famuyiwa starring up-and-comer Shameik Moore as __! Like the TV spot, we can't reveal that until you see it. I love the way they're marketing this, it's fresh and interesting and stands out, and I hope it's grabbing your attention. This TV spot first aired during the MTV Movie Awards last night, and it's a good sell, but I hope we see a bit more as they build up to the release in June. And yep, that's Lobby Boy from Grand Budapest, actor Tony Revolori, in the image above. Enjoy!
With just a few weeks left until Marvel Studios unleashes The Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters, we're starting to run out of new footage from the comic book sequel. That's just fine with us, because we'd rather save the good stuff for the theater anyway. But for those looking to see as much as possible from the milestone assembly of superheroes, a new TV spot has just showed up. While the first minute is pretty much all footage we've seen before, including the roll call of all the heroes, the last 30 seconds is all new footage with Captain America (Chris Evans) & Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) fighting Ultron together.
"We're fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow." We're just under a month away from the debut of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters next month, and to keep the hype train rolling, two more TV spots have arrived with some new footage. In one of the spots, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) gets into some trouble with Ultron (James Spader), who is calling out the assembly of superheroes. And in the second spot, we get another roll call of our heroes, and a great line from Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) finally addressing how inadequately prepared he is to join Earth's mightiest heroes with his weapon of choice.
With one month until the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, you might be getting more desperate to see as much footage from the Marvel Studios sequel as you can. Well, thanks to the magic of marketing and product placement, auto brand Audi has delivered a new commercial for one of their cars that is chock full of footage from the next adventure for our superhero assembly, including some new shots of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). And once that main commercial is over, they also give a quick tease of Ant-Man (watch the full teaser trailer here), which arrives later this summer.
"He thinks you can fix the future." Along with last night's new TV spot for Jurassic World, a new TV spot for Tomorrowland from director Brad Bird also played during the season finale of "The Walking Dead," and it's now online. This one shows some new footage that wasn't seen in the most recent US trailer, but did appear in the completely different Japanese trailer that has since been taken offline. Britt Robertson is pegged as being the key to saving the future by George Clooney, though Hugh Laurie seems to be a bit skeptical. What's that cool gun that blasts through a comic book shop? We'll have to wait and see. Watch!
"As the world fell, it was hard to know who was more crazy. Me or everyone else." Now that it's spring, we're getting closer and closer to the May release of the insane action extravaganza Mad Max: Fury Road. The film will play at Cannes Film Festival in France, but only one day before it's unleashed here in the United States. And to continue hyping the film, a new extended TV spot for the film starring Tom Hardy (with an unrecognizable voice again) and Charlize Theron has arrived with some new footage. It seems like this film is one massive car chase across the post-apocalyptic desert, and that's just fine. Watch!
The blockbuster summer of 2015 is almost upon us, and we should be getting some new glimpses of the tentpole releases sooner than later. And since last night brought the finale of "The Walking Dead," and studios new that millions would be watching, Universal Pictures unleashed a new TV spot for Jurassic World. There's not tons of new footage, but there's definitely some stuff we haven't seen before. In fact, this spot reveals that the Indominus Rex had already killed its sibling before it begins trekking across the park and killing for sport. This hybrid dinosaur is certainly going to be a force to be reckoned with. Watch!
