ENJOY THE SHOW
"If you think you can take our Top Prize spot – you're wrong!" "Dead wrong!" Disney has debuted a new 30-second TV spot for Pixar's next sequel Toy Story 4, arriving in theaters everywhere this June. This spot features Ducky & Bunny, voiced by Keegan Michael-Key & Jordan Peele, who mock Buzz after he gets tied up on the board as a prize for a carnival game. The other hint from this teaser is that the story might take place at some carnival in the mountains, and there's an "Antiques" museum visible in the background. But there's nothing else revealed in this besides that tidbit. All the other regular voices are back again: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, and Bonnie Hunt. I'm still looking forward to this, of course (it's Pixar!), I just hope we get a full trailer sometime soon. For now - enjoy this 30-second tease.
"Based on the iconic book series…" CBS Films has debuted four scary 15-second TV spots during the Super Bowl for the latest horror offering from Guillermo del Toro, an adaptation of the beloved book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. We expect the full trailer to drop soon but for now this is a start. The film is actually directed by Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and it's produced by and co-written by del Toro. The horror anthology features various frightening stories based on the books, most featuring younger kids. With a cast including Zoe Margaret Colletti, Michael Garza, Austin Zajur, Gabriel Rush, Kathleen Pollard, and Gil Bellows. This is a chilling first look, and I'm surprised they debuted this creepy footage during the game - but the teaser was "this Sunday will be scary."
"Got to show these boys how to do it. You ready?" Disney has also debuted a new 30-second TV spot during the Super Bowl for their other big movie coming up soon - Marvel's Captain Marvel, opening just a few weeks before Avengers: Endgame hits theaters. We've seen plenty of trailers and previews for this already, but why not some more new footage - including some extra bits of the big space battle. Brie Larson plays an Air Force fighter pilot who becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 90s (before any of the Avengers movies), this stars Gemma Chan, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Annette Bening, Colin Ford, Lashana Lynch, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. I'm really hoping this is as good as it looks, because it could be seriously badass. The space fight better be good - bring the fury, Carol Danvers.
"Some people move on, but not us…" Disney has debuted a new 30-second Super Bowl TV spot for Marvel's Avengers: Endgame, the conclusion to this grand saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As everyone knows, this is the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War - and the first teaser trailer debuted last December. There's not much revealed in this spot, but it does contain brand new footage for everyone to pour over. So many questions still left unanswered, and many more with this footage. Engame stars everyone from the MCU: Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Tessa Thompson, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Paul Rudd, Sebastian Stan, Dave Bautista, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, and many more. I'm intrigued by how much they're playing up the "everyone's gone" angle - this spot focuses entirely on that dark post-apocalyptic vibe.
"I'd like to purchase some of your finest beer please." Warner Bros has debuted a new extended TV spot for the Shazam! movie, based on the DC Comics character. This aired during the big football game last night, and is now online for everyone to enjoy. We're still waiting for a full trailer, but between the teaser trailer and this new spot I'm already pretty much completely sold on this. Zachary Levi stars as Shazam, and the cast includes Asher Angel as Billy Batson, plus Mark Strong as the Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, as well as Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou. This is looking like it's going to be a very fun movie to watch, I am excited to see this. The comedic tone and amusing kid-as-a-superhero vibe is just what we need from DC right now.
"Why are you here?" "I had a run in with a space alien." 20th Century Fox has debuted a new TV trailer, a 60-second spot, for Shane Black's new The Predator movie. We only just got the very first teaser trailer for this a month ago, and it's scheduled for release in September, so it's good to see some more new footage here. The big reveal in this is that there's a second Predator that appears out of nowhere at the end. What in the hell…? The ensemble cast is lead by Jacob Tremblay, who "accidentally triggers" their return to Earth again, along with Sterling K. Brown, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn, Lochlyn Munro, Thomas Jane, Boyd Holbrook, Jake Busey, Keegan-Michael Key, Niall Matter, Trevante Rhodes (from Moonlight), plus Edward James Olmos. Looks good. You might want to check this out - it's a cool reveal.
"So what's your name, anyway?" Disney + Lucasfilm have released an amusing new 45-second TV spot for Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story, featuring quite a bit of new footage not yet seen in the past two trailers. There's a scene at the beginning of this TV spot in which it's clear Han is meeting Chewbacca for the first time (after the train heist). And then there's another fun scene later on where they're playing cards together. There's a few other tiny touches like this and cool shots, and I'm liking what they're showing us. Alden Ehrenreich stars as Han Solo, and the full cast includes Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis, Clint Howard, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. This really looks like so much fun, I'm not so worried, can't wait to see this. Fire it up below.
"The end is near…" "We're going to need some help." Holy crap! Disney has released a new extended 60-second TV spot for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, which opens in just a few more weeks. This TV spot is the most epic look at this movie yet, with so much happening in just 60 seconds of footage. If you're not pumped for this yet, this should get you excited. Infinity War stars everyone in the Marvel movies: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, Tessa Thompson, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Dave Bautista, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany, and Josh Brolin as Thanos. Who's going to live? Who's going to die? By the end of this month we'll know what will happen. Bring it on.
"Home stay home." Universal has debuted a new TV spot to promote the Olympics featuring footage from the new animated version of The Grinch. We still haven't seen an actual trailer for this movie yet, so this is our first look and it's a fun 30-second spot showing off the furry green character. This version of Dr. Seuss' The Grinch is being made by Illumination Entertainment (of Despicable Me, Minions, Pets, The Lorax) and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Christmas meanie The Grinch. No other official voice cast has been revealed yet. The footage is all themed specifically for the Olympics and likely won't show up in the actual movie, but at least it's something to start with for now. I'm also not sure why the teaser poster shows a very young Grinch - perhaps we'll see his origin story in this, too? We'll have to wait to find out. For now, check out the new TV spot below and enjoy your first look at The Grinch movie in theaters this November.
"An entire universe. Once and for all." Disney + Marvel have unveiled a new 30-second TV spot during the Super Bowl for the Russo Brothers' most epic team-up superhero movie yet - Avengers: Infinity War - opening in theaters this May. We've already seen one official trailer late last year, but this TV spot has a few new glimpses. I love the shot of Iron Man swooping in and taking Dr. Strange's shield. And what is Spidey climbing on? This stars (everyone you know): Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, Tessa Thompson, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Dave Bautista, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Paul Bettany. This is worth a watch just to get a feel for what's to come. Enjoy.
"Not many people know what they'd die for…" Universal has aired a first look at the gnarly action movie Skyscraper as a Super Bowl TV spot, with a full trailer coming soon. Skyscraper stars Dwayne Johnson as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. When a fire breaks out on a big tower in China, he's framed for it, and finds himself on the run while trying to save his family trapped inside the skyscraper. That's a crazy plot, totally absurd but obviously designed as pure summer movie entertainment. The cast includes Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell, Roland Møller, Kevin Rankin, Byron Mann, Chin Han, Paul McGillion, and Adrian Holmes. As much as I thought this might be awful, it doesn't look so bad. Full trailer can be seen here. Check this out.
"So you want to make a difference?" "Trust me, you're going to love it." Disney + Lucasfilm have aired an official Super Bowl TV spot to tease the new Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, directed by Ron Howard, and starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. This is finally our first look at any footage from this movie, which hits theaters in May, since we've all been waiting to see something for so long. The full cast includes Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian (that jacket!!), plus Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis (of course), Clint Howard, and Joonas Suotamo returning as Chewbacca. Damn, does this look good! Solo! I'm crazy hyped already. The full trailer can now be seen here, so check that out for even more footage. Give this spot a shot and let us know your thoughts.
