BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The next generation of RoboCop trailer says that next generation fire can only be fought with a more violent iteration of that fire. Enter the neck-snapping red-eyelined hero who will save Detroit from itself. This preview gives us exactly what one wants from this kind of film: ass whippings, vehicles flying all over the place, and explosions.
The Super Bowl spot for this revved up feature leans heavily on its cars. Which makes sense, because the game on which this movie is based was a car-racing thriller. And it’s a credit to F&F that we see automobiles hurling through the air and automatically thing about that franchise.
Wait... Gwen Stacy lives? The Super Bowl trailer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 begins with a very deliberate tease to the death of Emma Stone’s character.
There was no sign of a plot. (Is there ever?) We mainly see humans screaming in terror as they run – in slow motion – away from explosions created by the Autobots and the Decepticons.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is based on a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, we find Cap (Chris Evans) continuing to adjust to the modern world following being frozen alive and fighting in the Battle of New York.
Muppets Most Wanted co-stars Fey, Gervais and Ty Burrell. It arrives in theaters on March 21. And look for the Muppets to double dip, as they are part of a car commercial also running during the Big Game… at some point.
The 30-second ad is definitely more exciting than anything Bud Light or GoDaddy.com are bringing, and it’s more pulse-pounding than the theatrical trailer previously released. You can’t go wrong with huge snake armies and swords that turn the ground into fire.
While we all expect a lot of the Super Bowl coverage to focus on star quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson, someone we might not expect to see more than once is Kevin Costner, who not only has a spot for his upcoming inside football drama Draft Day, but also for McG’s high-stakes action flick 3 Days to Kill.
The one thing you’re agreeing to by making a film like Draft Day is that you’re gonna have to shell out the $4.5 million for thirty seconds (in this case, a little more) to plug the film on the biggest football day of the year.
So, what is this movie? We’re not going to pretend you don’t know, but this tease of a trailer does give us some decent ideas of what to expect as this film begins to firm up it’s ad campaign leading up to the April 4th release.
Nowadays it's gotten to the point where the Super Bowl is practically as big for Hollywood as it is for the NFL. This Sunday, just about all of the major studios will be debuting new trailers for some of their biggest upcoming titles, hoping to attract the attention of the millions upon millions of viewers tuning in to watch some sports.
Noah is based on a script co-written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and retells the classic biblical tale of how the titular ordinary man (Russell Crowe) was instructed by god to build an ark in preparation for an apocalyptic flood. The film features a talented supporting cast that includes Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, and the film will be in theaters on March 28th
To the Muppets’ credit, they don’t push Most Wanted on us in this spot. So I’ll do them a favor and peddle the upcoming sequel. It will be in theaters on March 21.
Obviously, the visual style of the Matrix universe is instantly recognizable in a 30-second spot. Kia doesn’t have to educate the world on who Fishburne is playing. They see the glasses, hear his deep tone, and know instantly it’s a play off the Matrix movies.
While I can't say that that I like this commercial all that much - I'm not entirely sure I fully get the link between being a villain and driving a Jaguar - whoever did the casting absolutely nailed it. Kingsley, Strong and Hiddleston don't always play villains, but one could argue that all of them are at their best when they do.
Guardians needs to be explained. One her looks like a tree. The other is a gun-wielding raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper. This isn’t a “slam dunk,” even though the footage we saw in Hall H was so fantastic, you just know that Gunn is on to something special.
These potential blockbusters have a little selling to do, though, and Super Bowl Sunday is the ideal opportunity to fire a winning bow over the heads of ticket buyers. Here are the eight summer tentpole pictures that we think should make a splash next Sunday with an eye-popping Super Bowl advertisement.
Films don’t get much bigger than Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise, and it’s no surprise Paramount will reveal the first footage from Transformers: Age of Extinction during the game. We’ll probably just see Optimus Prime getting his transformation on along with a couple of explosions, but I bet people go crazy over it.
I’ll be very excited to see what Bay has to show. We know next to nothing about this sequel, as it’s a departure from the trilogy Bay helped launch back in 2007. No Shia LaBeouf. No Megan Fox. No John Turturro getting “urinated” on by an Autobot.
