ENJOY THE SHOW
The Super Bowl may not be until Sunday, but that doesn't mean we can't check out some of the TV spots for movies that will be debuting during the big game. Paramount Pictures has jumped the gun by unveiling the Super Bowl spot for Terminator: Genisys. It's mostly footage we've seen from the teaser trailer, including the return of the infamous "I'll be back" line that we all know. But there are a couple new action shots, and a better look at the aged Terminator played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm still not all that excited for this flick, but at the very least, Emilia Clarke looks like a bad ass as Sarah Connor. Watch it!
Surprisingly enough, the teaser trailer for Minions, the spin-off of Illumination Entertainment's animated hit Despicable Me, looked pretty great. There's a cool, original story that takes place before they even meet Gru (Steve Carell), and the film follows the little yellow creatures, always looking to help out their next master, looking for someone new to oversee them. And since the Super Bowl is right around the corner, we get a Super Bowl spot with the gibberish-speaking little guys going crazy, just like they're at the big game. Unfortunately, the film doesn't hit until this summer, but this should hold your kids over until then. Watch!
"You have to admit, he's ridiculously hot." If you watched the Golden Globes last night, then you probably already caught the extended TV spot for the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey, which is just over a month away from arriving for a steamy Valentine's Day weekend. The movie is probably going to be huge, and while it doesn't really look like my cup of tea, I'm certainly interested to see what all the fuss is about (though fans of the book likely will say that it doesn't compare, if only because of the sexuality limitations). Anyway, the spot explicitly calls Jamie Dornan hot, but that's for everyone else to decide. Watch below!
So far we've only seen one photo from the forthcoming comedy Sisters, but with Tina Fey & Amy Poehler hosting the 72nd Golden Globe Awards tonight, a surprise TV spot has popped up online showing off the first footage from the film. It's pretty short, but Tina and Amy get pretty wild and crazy, and we get to see them in their best 80s garb (including sideways ponytails) as well. There's bound to be a full trailer coming soon, and we can't wait to see what Fey and Poehler do together on the big screen this time, and hopefully improve on their previous attempt in Baby Mama. And we haven't even seen Maya Rudolph yet.
Everyone knows how important the stroke of midnight is in the classic fairytale Cinderella, and that's why Disney took full advantage of that on New Year's Eve by revealing a new preview of their latest live-action take on the story focusing on the all-important time. There's plenty of new footage we haven't seen in the trailers, showing off more of the gorgeous sets and costumes. In addition, a new featurette has surfaced as well, featuring lead actress Lily James, her prince Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") and director Kenneth Branagh. We all know the classic story, but maybe this will be worth checking out in March?
Now that it's actually 2015, we're going to get tons of talk about all that was on display in the future predicted by Back to the Future Part II (in fact, it's already out of hand if you go look around online). So how about we take a look at five TV spots for another time travel film that's only just getting released this year, even though it was slated for release in 2014. Project Almanac is a found footage time travel film that sees a group of teens building a time machine and using it for some fairly simplistic gain in their own lives. But soon they seen the major impact is has on the rest of the world. I caught the film last summer at Comic-Con, and while it's a fun sci-fi flick, I can't help but feel like it could have been a bit better. Watch?
"The CIA is asking us to be a couple of James Bonds." In case you hadn't heard, Sony Pictures has done a complete 360 turnaround on their release of The Interview. They went from a wide release on Christmas Day to pulling the film from theaters entirely, and now the film is headed back to the big screen, but only in a limited release throughout over 200 independent movie theaters (we've got the full list of theaters right here). And to help push the already hyped release, here's three new TV spots with Seth Rogen and James Franco. Get ready to see what pissed off North Korea so much that they tried to stop us from watching it.
With all the love for Guardians of the Galaxy this year and the excitement for Star Wars: The Force Awakens next year, Warner Bros. Pictures is hoping that you don't forget about their space adventure Jupiter Ascending coming in February with Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. The film hails from The Matrix masterminds Andy & Lana Wachowski, and this looks like a big helping of sci-fi fun from the new extended TV spot from the United Kingdom (there's also four character posters). It may not be quite as smart as the aforementioned, groundbreaking sci-fi flick, but maybe that's the idea. Frankly, I see this film bombing pretty hard, but I think those who do give it a chance may just enjoy themselves. Watch below!
"You sent assassins to kill me. Next time, do it yourself." Though the Jurassic World trailer debuted early online this week, it still played in a prime spot during NBC Thursday Night Football, and another film that got some prime holiday time was Exodus: Gods & Kings, the epic from director Ridley Scott that puts Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in the heart of an iconic Biblical tale. A new extended TV spot for the December release has arrived, and this was shows more taunting between Moses (Bale) and Ramses (Edgerton), along with an impressive shot of the sea rising, one of the most iconic images from the tale.
"The time is upon us when all must choose which side we are on." The final trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the concluding chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic book, just arrived last week. But now the first TV spots shows off a little more footage that wasn't glimpsed in that trailer. We're bound to see some more bits of this epic battle as we get closer to the release in just over a month, and while this certainly looks like a grand end to our adventure, it all feels a little too familiar because of Lord of the Rings. Still, fans are bound to enjoy the end of the series. Watch it!
"Show them what it costs to be friends with Katniss Everdeen." We're just under a couple weeks away from the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I, the beginning of the end for Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebellion she sparked against The Capitol. Now a new TV spot has emerged, complete with a menacing threat from President Snow (Donald Sutherland), and a showcase of the big action to come. Plus, it wouldn't be a Hunger Games movie if Katniss didn't scream in peril for her sister Prim, so we get to hear that again too. It's almost time for one of the biggest movies of the fall! Watch now!
It's officially Interstellar week as we wait for Christopher Nolan's anticipated sci-fi film to hit theaters (don't forget, it hits IMAX screens a couple days early), so we've got some more goods hyping up the film. Don't worry if you're avoiding seeing anymore footage like us, because you don't have to watch any of this stuff. The following five featurettes and two new TV spots are just for the people who can't refrain from seeing everything they can from the film before it arrives. All the featurettes are rounding up into a single five minute video, and the TV spots have been put together too. Isn't that convenient? Watch below now!
Regardless of whether or not you're annoyed with the whitewashing of the cast in Ridley Scott's latest epic Exodus: Gods & Kings, the film is arriving this winter, and plenty of people will go see it, oblivious to the controversy that has stirred up online. And to drum up more hype, two TV spots for the film have arrived showing off the conflict that arises between two brothers, Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton), and the battle that ensues as one follows his destiny to save his people, and the other is driven by his desire to be remembered as a god. Could this be Scott's return to glory on the big screen? Watch now!
"What is being done to you?" Hot on the heels of a new TV spot for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I, another quick preview has debuted online just to make sure you know this flick is one of the most anticipated films of the season. Of course, that's a quote from Fandango, who is just trying to sell you advance tickets in this TV spots, but that doesn't mean people aren't legitimately excited to finally see Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to lead the revolution against The Capitol that's been a long time coming. Plus, we finally get to see Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) without all her fancy make-up. Watch!
