ENJOY THE SHOW
"Daddy's gotta go to work." Holy crap! Universal has launched another crazy cool 60 second TV spot for James Wan's Furious 7, starring the late Paul Walker, plus Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Tyrese, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, Tony Jaa, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Djimon Hounsou. It starts out with some of the same footage we've seen from the first kick ass trailer, but then launches into something spectacular - as Dom launches his car across two skyscrapers - damn! The rest of the footage speaks for itself, and honestly looks quite good, if not something entertaining to kick off the summer early at the beginning of April. This is a quick 60 seconds of your time, so have fun. Check it out!
Even though the Super Bowl is mostly big of debut TV spots for films that are still months away, movie studios also have to push the films that are hitting theaters sooner than later. That's why we're here with a Super Bowl spot for the comedy Unfinished Business starring Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson. In addition to the tame TV spot, there's an extended red band trailer for the film. Can't say that I'm all that excited to see this, but I can appreciate the use of The Lonely Island's comedic track "Like a Boss" being used in the advertising. Though that video and song seem to be funnier than this movie. Watch!
This week, fans who have been waiting for more SpongeBob SquarePants on the big screen finally get their wish in the form of SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water. The gang hits the real world again to get back the stolen secret recipe to the Krabby Patty, but this time they end up even bigger as they obtain super powers in order to fight the thief trying to pass Krabby Patties off as his own, played by Antonio Banderas. This look like a lot of silly fun, and the animation that brings SpongeBob and the gang to life in the real world just has a cool texture. For one last bit of hype, check out this quick Super Bowl spot. Watch!
"What if there was a place… where nothing was impossible?" After debuting during the Super Bowl today, Disney has posted the full TV spot for Brad Bird's sci-fi Tomorrowland online for our repeat viewing. This is the first time we've seen any new footage beyond the first teaser trailer and the action clip at New York Comic-Con last fall. Britt Robertson stars as Casey, and she meets George Clooney as inventor Frank Walker, and together they end up embarking on a fantastic adventure to another time and place known as "Tomorrowland". This looks really, really good - one of my most anticipated coming up this summer. Enjoy!
Just recently we highlighted an awesome theatrical experience that put some viewers heading to an early screening of Kingsman: The Secret Service in the United Kingdom right in the middle of the action with a cool little viral stunt. Now the film's release in the United States is nearly upon us, and 20th Century Fox is betting big on pulling in sports fans with a Super Bowl spot. This one puts forth some of the higher praise for the fun-looking flick while showing off more of the big action with Colin Firth and newcomer Taron Egerton. The early buzz on this one pegs it as a fun action comedy romp, but we'll see. Watch it!
"Trouble always comes around." The Avengers: Age of Ultron is only three months away, and considering the fact that the Super Bowl is right around the corner, we might get a glimpse of some new footage during the big game. But in the meantime, the Marvel Studios production has released the first TV spot for the comic book sequel, but this isn't meant to play during the Super Bowl. It's mostly footage we've already seen from the teaser trailer and the more recent second trailer, but there are some snippets of new action footage in there. It's certainly going to be brutal to see Bruce Banner and Tony Stark forced to fight.
The Super Bowl is going to be chock full of new ads as usual, but not all movies can afford some time during the big game. In the case of The Divergent Series: Insurgent, it looks like Summit Entertainment wants eyes on the young adult sci-fi sequel, but they couldn't afford to get the ad during gametime. Instead, this is a Super Bowl pregame spot for the film starring Shailene Woodley. While the teaser trailer looked more impressive than the first film, it's starting to seem like it might be too much, especially when it comes to the simulations. This time we see tons of buildings and stuff breaking apart and exploding as Tris falls. Watch!
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.
