It was this time last year that we got our first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That teaser was a minute-and-a-half long and featured only seven shots, but there was also a mysterious voiceover that we’ve since learned was spoken by Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” Now, almost exactly one year later, we get an answer as to who Snoke was talking to. It seems like we’re getting new footage by the day in 30-second or one minute increments, but for the first time, it seems like the new normal of the Dark Side is getting the spotlight in a TV ad.

There’s a scene in the latest Ant-Man trailer where Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is giving Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) a pep talk to encourage him to suit up as the insectoid hero. Lang’s responses is that Pym’s dire straits seems more like a job for the Avengers than a new Ant-Man. Well, one out of six ain’t bad. It’s not exactly a state secret, and the appearance of the Avenger in question can be spoiled as easily as looking at Ant-Man’s IMDb page, but if you’d rather not know, then you’re advised to look away from this post, because the following Ant-Man TV spot pretty handily ruins what looks like a cool cameo in the upcoming Marvel Studios‘ film.

It’s just over a month till all our questions about Guardians of the Galaxy are answered. Will it be the gamble that Marvel is hoping for, a successful expansion of their brand, or a mortal miscalculation? It’s fascinating, and I think we’re all banking on something awesome to unfurl, and from all appearances, it looks like we may get our wish. In the latest TV ad for the film, we get some amazingly looking new footage our heroes and get a look at some of the cool action that’s in store. Fingers crossed that this movie will deliver, it certainly looks like it will with each passing glance we get at it. (more…)
I take a lot of shots at Marvel for what I believe to be a neutering (or flat out execution) of their more creative directorial choices, but Guardians of the Galaxy may be the film that completely flies in the face of my criticisms. James Gunn seems to have delivered a product that bears his distinct fingerprint — a weird slice of sci-fi with an “off-beat” sense of humor all its own. Today, a new TV spot continues to showcase the lighthearted, eye-popping “fun” his MCU picture (hopefully) is going for, with a climactic shot of psychadelia featuring star Chris Pratt that truly has me intrigued on a sheer visual level.

Hear Grimlock Roar While Imagine Dragons Pound Out Weak Sauce Commercial Pop in Latest ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailers/TV Spots
What the fuck is an Imagine Dragon anyway? Aren’t all dragons imaginary? What a redundant name for a band.
Sorry. I couldn’t help but vent there, as I honestly can’t fathom how these ‘musicians’ became popular. Now that they’re contributing their muzak-ready drivel to Transformers: Age of Extinction, I guess we can use them as a baseline for whether or not the person sitting next to you has taste that jives with the lowest common denominator. It’s kind of like that moment when emo music went totally mainstream via Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and that awful Fantastic Four movie. From that day forward, if you listened to anything remotely resembling Dashboard Confessional or Taking Back Sunday, your taste was automatically “corporately influenced”. (more…)
Strangely titled “Nature Has an Order” (which would lead one to believe that it’d just be thirty seconds of Gojira stomping on that ass), the latest TV Spot for Gareth Edwards’ redux of Godzilla features more narration from Bryan Cranston. Only this time, instead of warning us about the government’s lies (in his best Ozymandias tone), he quickly illustrates the inherent human tragedy the apocalypse carries with it. Yet again, Warner Bros. and Legendary have put together an incredible piece of marketing that continues to sell Edwards’ film as the must-see movie of Summer 2014.
Since Captain America: The Winter Soldier went into production (if not before), we’re heard about how it was going to be more than superhero movie and be something more akin to the political thrillers of the 1970s, but so far the trailers have emphasized the action and adventure. Hey, don’t get us wrong, we love that $#!%, but what about that political stuff we were promised? Well, maybe this is where it starts. (more…)
In case you’ve forgotten, the second part of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, comes out this Christmas. But if you did forget, no problem, that’s why studio marketing was invented. Below, is the third TV spot of the latest Hobbit movie… (more…)
If you’re tired of watching all the trailers for video games that look like movies from this years E3, sit back and relax with a movie that looks like a video game. Neill Blomkamp‘s (District 9) has a new sci-fi flick called Elysium on the way if you haven’t heard, starting Matt Damon as a member of the great unwashed that are left earthside while the ultra rich and clean, like Jodie Foster, live on the space station from 2001: A Space Odyssey. By the looks of the TV spot Damon plans on pwning those space newbs.
