ENJOY THE SHOW
"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!
"We're here to stop the end of the world." If you've been waiting to see some more footage from Terminator: Genisys, our friends across the pond have you covered. A new extended TV spot from the United Kingdom has just surfaced with a whole bunch of new footage from the film, including our first look at J.K. Simmons in the film (sadly the scene in question doesn't look very good), and a glimpse at what appears to be a new Terminator model (perhaps that's who Matt Smith will be playing in the film). The Terminator films have never been deadly serious, but this one just feels far too campy and silly for my taste.
"The Avengers. How could you possibly stop me?" The whole team assembles in a new one-minute TV spot for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Each character gets a nice little one-liner in this new look that is pretty much all new footage, including some awesome action beats with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) turning Captain America's (Chris Evans) shield into an even stronger projectile by hitting it into some of Ultron's robots with Mjolnir. We also get a glimpse at the scene when Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) decides to fight for the good guys, and also Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) shows off a Russian accent. Watch!
Since 20th Century Fox just bumped up the release of their horror remake Poltergeist to a late May release, it's time for the onslaught of TV advertising to begin to get people interesting in this retread of a horror classic. Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt star as the heads of the haunted family this time with Jared Harris (The Quiet Ones) being their paranormal guide. Here in the first TV spot, we get some fancy new effects shots, and an ominous voiceover touting that this isn't just another ghost story. And using a little kid to whisper the title at the end is a nice touch. Could this actually be a decent remake? Watch!
I can't stop thinking about just how crazy everything looks whenever I see footage from Furious 7. And I know "crazy" can be derogatory when overused, but they actually use it in the trailer! "This takes crazy to a whole 'nother level!" Yes, indeed it does, Tyrese. And you know what, I'm down for it. Dwayne Johnson tweeted about this new "trailer", which is just another new TV spot for Furious 7 from this past weekend. There's not much new footage, but it is all about the action as one last reminder that this is coming up. Furious 7 stars the late Paul Walker, plus Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Tyrese, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, Tony Jaa and Michelle Rodriguez. I'm actually pretty excited to see this.
"Keep that girl out of sight, and you will get whatever you desire." So far the trailers for Disney's new live-action version of Cinderella have shown exactly what we expected from the Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the classic fairytale. However, with a new trailer poised to debut on Wednesday, a new TV spot has arrived that shows there might be more to the story than we anticipated. In this new tease, we are privy to a conspiracy between the vice regent (Stellan Skarsgård) and Cinderella's step-mother (Cate Blanchett) to keep the young girl (Lily James) away from the prince (Richard Madden). Watch!
Following the debut of the first trailer last week, Seth MacFarlane's comedy sequel Ted 2 delivered a timely Super Bowl spot, and much like the Pitch Perfect 2 spot that debuted during the game, this one has a perfect link to football. While the trailer showed that Mark Wahlberg was more than willing to give a sperm sample in order for Ted to have a baby with his girlfriend, it looks like their first idea is to get a more perfect, but non-consensual donation from one of the Super Bowl's top players: Tom Brady. Somehow, Ted 2 looks like it's going to be even more outrageous and silly than the first film, and that's saying something.
