Fate of the Furious gets a furious Super Bowl spot

Furious 7 was such a huge disappointment to me, I can't bear the thought of the series continuing further. I know some folks enjoyed it, and some are excited for the next film in the series but I'm kind of over it.  This Super Bowl spo...

 
 
Logan SB spot photo

Logan gets a damn good Super Bowl spot

Logan has basically been a master class as to how to generate hype from trailers. Although we've seen most of the same footage -- this Super Bowl spot does include a few seconds of new stuff -- I'm pretty sure each time we see it it's been ...

Ghost in the Super Bowl photo

Ghost in the Shell's Super Bowl spot serves good face

There's been a lot of back and forth over whether Ghost in the Shell, a film adapted from a famous manga and anime property, would work under Western direction. There's been even more of a fuss over the lack of a Japanese lead actress and S...

Transformers: The Last Knight's Super Bowl spot is a disaster

The first Transformers: The Last Knight trailer was a complete mess. Those hoping new footage would somehow make sense of it (me) are going to be gravely disappointed. The Super Bowl spot clears up one thing, Optimus is clearly being manipu...

 
 
 
 
 
 
Jason Bourne photo

Jason Bourne assumes we know him in first trailer

The Bourne franchise was supposed to be going its own merry way without Matt Damon, but after The Bourne Legacy failed to be a mega hit the actor was lured back to the character to help the universe out again. The first tease for Jason...

 
 
 
X-Men: Apocalypse SB Spot photo

X-Men: Apocalypse's Super Bowl spot locks it down

I was a bit worried after X-Men: Apocalypse's first trailer seemed like a mess, but the tighter editing on this 30 second Super Bowl spot cleaned it up. Rather than seem over packed, the little tidbits we're shown are cool looking and make ...

 
 
 
Fifty Super Spot photo

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 scenes I've se...

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, we're going to ...

 
 
Spongebob Super Spot photo

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), and since the fir...

 
 
Kingsman Super Spot photo

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 based off his works...

 
 
Pitch Perfect 2 Spot photo

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 it, the more I b...

 
 
Tomorrowland Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland

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'...

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 than Tom Brady and...

 
 
Jurassic World Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Jurassic World

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 t...

 
 
Furious 7 Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Furious 7

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 des...

 
 
Insurgent Super Spot photo

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 (although the "She...

 
 
 
Terminator Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Terminator: Genisys

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 Ar...

 
 
Movie Monday - 2/3/14 photo

Movie Monday for February 03, 2014

Hey movie fans, Super Bowl has come and gone, and we got all the trailers and movie info that might have gotten buried while you were drinking the big game away.

 
 
3 Days to Kill SB Spot photo

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), Kevin Costner wi...

 
 
Pompeii SB Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Pompeii

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 saddened when there ...

 
 
Monuments Men SB Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for The Monuments Men

Releasing later this week (since it was delayed from its intended release last December) is George Clooney's The Monuments Men, and I couldn't be more excited about it. It's filled to the brim with an amazing cast, hearkens back to old ens...

 
 
Noah SB Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Noah

Darren Aronofsky's upcoming Noah is going to look absolutely stunning. It may not be the best movie, or even the best representation of a biblical property, but it's going to look wonderful. This Super Bowl spot further cements it as a fea...

 
 
Muppets SB Spot photo

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 Super Bowl, yes ...

 
 
Captain America 2 SB Spot photo

Second trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

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 s...

 
 
Draft Day SB Spot photo

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 lot of young athl...

 
 
Need for Speed SB spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Need for Speed

This certainly looks like a movie based on a videogame based on cars driving really fast. The upcoming Need for Speed movie debuted a spot during the Super Bowl that completely lacks the fervor of last year's Fast & Furious 6 Super Bow...

 
 
Trans4mers SB Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction

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 Lab...

UPDATE: Super Bowl TV spot for Star Trek Into Darkness

[UPDATE: In addition to getting tix to early screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness, downloading the Star Trek App will also give users an exclusive look at an extended cut of this Super Bowl spot. A little more information about the Star T...

Super Bowl TV spot for Oz the Great and Powerful

During the Super Bowl a new trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful landed. You might be forgiven for thinking it was actually not a new trailer since we've seen so many trailers for this film that we've probably seen the entire movie a...
