ENJOY THE SHOW
"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!
The Dinobots! It's time. Get your first look at the Dinobots, as well as Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, and Nicola Peltz, in the latest Transformers sequel titled Transformers: Age of Extinction. Paramount debuted a 30-second Super Bowl TV spot for Michael Bay's Transformers 4 which ends on a rather epic shot of Optimus riding out on one of the Dinobots, meaning they're going all out by bringing these guys into the mix this time. As expected there are tons of explosions and lots of badass robot action. I'll be honest, I'm excited to see this. Fun way to introduce us to the kick ass new Transformers movie we're getting this June.
"I can feel love, engines, motor oil, all swirling together..." Disney has debuted an extended version, with intro from Aaron Paul and Scott Mescudi, of the Need for Speed TV spot from the Super Bowl. The 30-second spot aired during the big game this weekend, but they've released an extended TV spot online for anyone interested in seeing a bit more footage from this car action movie. Dominic Cooper gets some playtime in this as the big bad villain, along with Imogen Poots as the hottie in the middle. This doesn't look any better than the latest trailer for Need for Speed, but it still has a slick feel to it that's hard to resist.
In Heroes We Trust! Marvel has launched their new Super Bowl TV spot as well as a brand new theatrical trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The superhero seqeul hits theaters in only two more months, so this is their big final push for it and they're going all out, giving us a tease at just how awesome this new Marvel Studios movie looks. Chris Evans returns as Steve Rogers, encountering his foe Bucky as the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, teaming up with Anthony Mackie as The Falcon. The cast also includes Robert Redford, Hayley Atwell, Emily VanCamp and Scarlett Johansson. Honestly, this looks way better than I was expecting, and I can't wait to see how it all plays out. Fire up these two vids.
"Perhaps the Gods spared us for a reason." What other movies are studios teasing during the big game this weekend? Two more Super Bowl TV spots have debuted online thanks to Sony Pictures, pushing their two films: Pompeii, the big, dumb action extravaganza from Paul W.S. Anderson, and The Monuments Men, George Clooney's big WWII drama about rescuing artwork from the Nazis, which was delayed from a late 2013 release. Both movies have been teased before, but as always I'm curious to see what they package into each 30-second TV spot with footage that appeals to all, yet represents the movie it's promoting. Personally, I'm more excited to see The Monuments Men, since Pompeii kind of looks like junk. View both spots below.
"You wanted to be the hero. Now you gotta pay the price." If the New Year's Eve tease wasn't enough to keep the excitement going for this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, well the big game on Sunday should amp things up a bit. There will be a full Super Bowl spot for the comic book sequel from director Marc Webb this weekend, but in order to tickle your tastebuds, the first half (around 30 seconds) has been released online. It ends on a cliffhanger, and it might be a hint at the future fate of Spidey's girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), which shouldn't be unfamiliar to the comic fans. Or it could be misdirection. Watch!
"Be the first to see how it all begins..." "I'm all ears, let's talk." Another Super Bowl TV Spot to take a look at a bit early, this time from Summit. And it's a football one anyway. Summit has released their 30-second spot for Draft Day, directed by Ivan Reitman, starring Kevin Costner as General Manager of the Cleveland Browns. We've featured the full theatrical trailer before, but this time the focus is all football, football, football, even going so far as to say that the season is over, but more football continues this April. The cast includes Jennifer Garner, Ellen Burstyn, Tom Welling and Kevin Dunn, among others. Have fun and enjoy!
"The storm cannot be stopped, but it can be survived." Paramount has decided to reveal the first big game Super Bowl TV spot early, debuting the 30 second ad for Darren Aronofsky's Noah that's showing this weekend. We've already seen a couple of trailers for this epic Aronofsky take on the biblical story of Noah's Ark, starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone and, yes, Emma Watson. This spot features a few new shots, including one of some angels floating down over Earth (wha?), plus some extra epic music to sell the Super Bowl audiences. This does look like it might be good, and I'm glad they're finally pushing this out there for everyone to see. The end? No. "The beginning of everything..."
Last week, a new trailer for Disney's live-action villain tale Maleficent popped up, and it wasn't all that impressive. The compare and contrast of the animated classic Sleeping Beauty with this new dark vision focusing on Angelina Jolie as the iconic villain just didn't work, and the tone felt misguided. Well, last night during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, a new spot gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the film. Jolie's voice is haunting, but not nearly as much as the track Lana Del Rey recorded for the film which plays in this vastly superior spot for the summer release. Maybe this'll be good after all? Watch!
