ENJOY THE SHOW
Along with last night's barrage of TV spots for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Edge of Tomorrow, Hercules and A Million Ways to Die in the West, there's one more TV spot for what could be the biggest comedy of the summer: 22 Jump Street. The TV spot doesn't feature much footage from the latest red band trailer, but it does include the new ending from the previous green band trailer, not to mention some other funny new bits featuring our duo on spring break. It's clear there's going to be a lot more action than the first film, and that's just fine with us as long as the comedy delivers as well.
"I think we may have just found a Transformer." Tonight MTV hosted their faux-awards show the MTV Movie Awards, which aren't worth covering aside from the handful of new TV spots that debuted during the show. This year they debuted fresh spots for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers: Age of Extinction (gotta love Mark Wahlberg in this), as well as another new spot for Seth MacFarlane's wacky western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. Also toss in the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt time loop sci-fi Edge of Tomorrow and of course Hercules with Dwayne Johnson and that's about it. Fire 'em up.
"What happened was not a natural disaster. You're lying." After a recent TV spot featured a conversation between a concerned Elizabeth Olsen and her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, we get another look at the family taking a toll as the presence of Godzilla creates chaos for mankind in two new TV spots. This time, it's Taylor-Johnson's son who asks if he's coming back, and it's sandwiched in between some new footage of the King of Monsters stomping around at an airport and also a new shot of him roaring in the rain. Another features more of the frantic Bryan Cranston, so that's always fun. Watch the TV spots now!
The revival of Godzilla from Monsters director Gareth Edwards isn't too far away, and after we featured some spectacular fan artwork for the film from Blurppy, we're back to the official hype machine chugging along with a new TV spot. This one focuses more on the human characters, and the fear and uncertainty of survival we face as the King of Monsters wreaks havoc across the planet. Elizabeth Olsen sounds scared when Aaron Taylor-Johnson isn't sure he's going to come back from whatever mission the military has tasked him with to stop the giant lizard. We really can't wait to see how this remake turns out. Watch below!
"Remember Noah, he choose you for a reason." Now playing in theaters everywhere is Darren Aronofsky's Noah, his epic new take on the biblical story of Noah's Ark, starring Russell Crowe. The movie has been discussed and argued endlessly by critics and moviegoers the world over, as is evident by some of the heated discussions in our Sound Off. One of the best parts is the new score by Clint Mansell, which has a feeling similar to The Fountain, but with its own distinct sound for this movie. In honor of the release of the movie and Mansell's score, Paramount has provided us with an exclusive featurette showing more footage mixed with Mansell's wonderful music. It's another great reminder to buy the score and catch this in theaters now.
Following last week's awesome theatrical trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the first TV spot has surfaced for the film. It's basically a super condensed version of that spectacular trailer that showed so much of the apocalyptic future destruction from the war between sentinels and mutants, so it's now much to get excited about. But there's at least one brief new shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and that's always good. Anyway, this looks like it's going to be one hell of an X-Men sequel with a cast that is unfathomably big and talented across the board. Can Bryan Singer deliver another great comic book flick?
"That's their advantage... that's what makes 'em stronger." Whoa. Chilling new TV spot for Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel that originally aired during "The Walking Dead" on AMC last night. The 30-second spot has now hit the web via YouTube, and to compliment the footage we've included a new poster debuted by our friends at Collider from CinemaCon. We saw footage at CinemaCon as well and can only reiterate the same - this movie looks amazing. And this little tease of new footage continues to hint at the setup to this sequel and the two sides of the war we'll see battling in this. One of our most anticipated.
We're just two weeks away from the Biblical apocalypse that will be unleashed in Noah as Russell Crowe is tasked with building a vessel to save all the animals of the world. And that means the hype machine is in full swing with four new TV spots being unveiled that we'll likely see all over the small screen in the next two weeks. Whether or not the film will pull in the coveted religious demographic, this looks like quite the visual spectacle from Darren Aronofsky, and it's easily the biggest film the director has ever made (just check out the featurette on the ark itself). But will it actually turn out to be any good? See for yourself. Watch!
"Get me off the grid now!" After the last TV spot hinted that a certain Marvel character might be in trouble in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a new one-minute spot for the Marvel sequel pretty much confirms it. It seems like Samuel L. Jackson has Nick Fury will definitely be incapacitated for part of the film, but we're doubting that he'll be killed off. However, Fury isn't the only member of S.H.I.E.L.D. under fire as we see the government holding some sort of hearing to scrutinize the agency that seems to be taking a lot of liberty with protecting the United States. This just looks better and better. Watch the TV spot below!
April is inching closer, which means Captain America: The Winter Soldier isn't too far away. We've already seen one TV spot with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) getting pretty serious as he prepares to face the title villain played by Sebastian Stan, and now a new spot has shown up, and it might have a big spoiler. We don't want to write about it here just in case it turns out to be true, but there's a certain line of dialogue spoken by Cap himself that makes it sounds like a well-known Marvel character isn't going to survive this superhero sequel. Is this misdirection? We'll have to find out on the big screen in April. Watch the TV spot!
"You can control and conquer your fears. That's what makes you dangerous." The release of the next hopeful young adult film franchise is just over a month away with Divergent hitting theaters in March. We've already gotten a solid glimpse of the film in the final trailer, but now a new Olympics TV spot has popped up with Shailene Woodley looking a bit more bad ass. However, I'm still not sold on the film just yet. There's something about it that still feels cheap, and Theo Von isn't helping anything. Anyway, maybe this could turn out to be a decent female-led sci-fi franchise like The Hunger Games. That would be great. Watch!
"You're trying to prove that the universe is all for nothing." We've already seen one trailer for Terry Gilliam's latest sci-fi endeavor The Zero Theorem starring Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz. The film still doesn't have a release date in the United States, but has played countless festivals leading up to its spring release in the United Kingdom next month. And since the film is so close to release across the pond, a new TV spot from the UK has popped up giving just a brief glimpse at the story, the cast (which includes David Thewlis) and the wild setting. It's definitely pure Terry Gilliam, whether you like it or not. Watch it!
Steve Roger means business. That's pretty much all we need to know in this first TV spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Marvel sequel starring summer early in April. We get a slight snippet of some new footage of Chris Evans encountering his latest villain (Sebastian Stan), the title enemy with a metal arm who has some deep ties to the past of Steve Rogers. Plus there's quick flashes of stuff we saw in the most recent trailer and Super Bowl spot. This is going to be one hell of a sequel, and it's definitely going to give Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World a run for their money as the best film in Phase Two. Watch!
"We have plans for you, Peter Parker..." "Let's go catch a spider." Hell yes! Take a look at this. Marvel has unleashed an extended trailer and the "second half" of the Super Bowl spot for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sequel, hitting theaters in early May. The actual TV spot they aired was a continuation of the footage that was teased earlier in the week, but they've also tossed up a full-on 4-minute extended trailer to go along with it. Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker, aka Spidey, with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. This time we meet Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. The more footage we see from this the closer it gets to release, the better it's starting to look. Enjoy!
