Super Bowl TV spot for Fifty Shades of Grey

In preparation for the Fifty Shades film, which I have no idea which one of us is going to review yet, I started reading the book. Boy, is it far more fan fiction-y than I had realized. It's got some of the worst written sex...

Super Bowl TV Spot for Minions

They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel. Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...

Super Bowl TV Spot for Spongebob: Sponge Out of Water

I haven't been very silent about this, but I am actually mad hyped for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water. The cartoon has been very good the past few years (and was even entertaining at inception, too), an...

Super Bowl TV spot for Kingsman: The Secret Service

I'm not sure what to think of Kingsman: The Secret Service. It looks interesting, but it's yet another adaptation based off another of Mark Millar's comic books. The guy doesn't have the best track record, and the films base...

Super Bowl TV spot for Pitch Perfect 2

I've been worried about Pitch Perfect 2 since it was announced a few years ago. I really liked the first one (enough to watch it several times), and a lot of the humor just kind of *clicked* with me. But the more I watched i...

Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland photo
Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland
by Nick Valdez

Through its trailers and how little story we've been given so far, Tomorrowland is shaping up to be one of the more interesting movies this year. Like Pirates of the Caribbean, it's a film adapted from Disney parks, but unlike Pirates, it's being handled by a good team. This Super Bowl spot shows a bit of new footage (though it's missing the cool robots from the Comic-Con stuff) and more Clooney monologue, so it's all good in my book. 

Directed by Brad Bird, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, Tomorrowland opens May 22nd.

Super Bowl TV spot for Ted 2

While we got a more traditional trailer for Ted 2 this past Thursday it seems that was not what was in store for us during the amazing Super Bowl. Instead Ted 2 delivered almost a short clip starring none other tha...

Super Bowl TV spot for Jurassic World photo

Jurassic World's first trailer was underwhelming for a number of reasons. As cool as a raptor gang was, the CG wasn't quite there yet and the tone of the trailer couldn't decide if it was supposed to be intentionally goofy or not. Thanks to better editing and a bit of new footage, the Super Bowl spot is much more gripping. 

Cool new dinos, cool new scares, and some poor Mexican worker is eaten (I always focus on the weirdest things). All good, good stuff. Jurassic World opens June 12th.

Pack it up, every other movie of 2015. You're done. I'm calling it now, there won't be a better scene this year than the final shot of Furious 7's Super Bowl spot. I've still got goosebumps! Furious 7 releases April 3rd. 

Here's a description: 

Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan.

Super Bowl TV spot for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

With as interesting as the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, may be, I really hoped it would've fixed its CG issues by now. It's a shame too because the whole dreamscape aspects are putting out all sorts of crazy Matrix vibes (al...

While the Seahawks and Patriots might be one of the least interesting Super Bowl match ups we've seen in a while that doesn't mean you shouldn't be watching. There's going to be commercials and some of those commercials will ...

This Super Bowl spot for Terminator: Genisys may take a bit of footage from the first (hilariously convoluted) trailer, but there's a bit at the end that I'm most excited for. Also, it's really hard looking at this newest poster touting Arnold's return and not lose my f**king mind. Seriously I'm so hyped for this now, bad spelling and all. 

Terminator: Genisys releases July 1st. Expect more Super Bowl spots to come.

Super Bowl TV spot for 3 Days to Kill

In this Super Bowl spot for 3 Days to Kill, Kevin Costner somehow crams talking about football into another movie. As he puts on his best Liam Neeson face (although Neeson has proven he could still be a badass at his age), K...

Thanks to that cool band, Bastille, I automatically think of that extremely good "Pompeii" single when I read the word. When I was suddenly reminded Pompeii is a movie that exists during the Super Bowl, I was sadde...

Super Bowl TV spot for Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted has so much to live up to as the first film helped revitalize The Muppets and the way we see them. Now that it's missing Jason Segel, does it have a chance? By the looks of this spot ran during the S...

Second trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier photo
Second trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier
by Nick Valdez

Captain America: The First Avenger was my favorite pre-Avengers Marvel movie, and by the looks of this second trailer for its follow up, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel is going to be as good or better than the first. The second trailer has quite a bit of new footage mixed in with some old, but it has more of Anthony Mackie's Falcon so it's a winner in my book. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this second trailer possibly spoils a few of the film's big scenes. 

If you want to see less footage, but still want to be impressed by what you see, the Super Bowl spot is under the jump. And in the gallery you'll find a load of posters and images we weren't able to get to. Captain America: The Winter Solder waves the Star Spangled Banner April 4th.

Super Bowl TV spot for Draft Day

Draft Day, starring Kevin Costner, isn't a movie made for me, but I can see why it's going to be a big deal. Backed by the NFL as it morphs a sitting room into a stirring drama, Draft Day takes the most important day in a lo...

Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction
by Nick Valdez

Folks, this might be the Transformers movie we've all been waiting for. While this official Super Bowl spot is short, it gives us more information than we can handle. In fact, this looks like a completely different series. Gone are the Labeoufs, random hot girl poses, and military action, and here in its place is the lovable (and more action oriented) Mark Wahlberg, a girl who plays his daughter instead of love interest, oh and DINOBOTS. 

Yes the dinosaur robots rumored and teased for the better half of a year have finally been revealed. AND OPTIMUS PRIME RIDES A TYRANNOSAURUS REX. It all looks so good, I'm willing to forgive the other films and look at this from a positive angle from now on. It just looks fun. Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls out June 27th.
