avengers infinity war tv spot breakdown

The Avengers assembled once again last night. And though the latest Avengers: Infinity War TV spot was only 30 seconds long, there was a horde of new details unveiled about the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film. From new tech to new allies and new outfits: the world’s mightiest heroes won’t go up against Thanos alone.

You can take a look at our in-depth breakdown of the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer here, but for now, here are a few new revelations that we gleaned from last night’s Avengers Infinity War Super Bowl TV spot.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Breakdown

This morning brought the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Even though there’s plenty of footage in the trailer, which runs just over a minute and a half, we only get a few story details, and none of them include any information on just what kind of villain our new superhero team will be contending with this time. But even so, there were plenty of details to notice, and we’ll run through some of the finer points in our Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer breakdown. Read More »

Ready Player One Trailer breakdown 20

If you’ve read Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, you know that it’s absolutely steeped in pop culture references. The lead character is a pop culture junkie and there’s barely a page that doesn’t contain some sort of explicit reference to a geek property. While in the book the main character is all about the 1980s, the latest trailer for the film adaptation shows that director Steven Spielberg has eased up on the references to the movies (some of which were references to his work!) and used other, more current media instead.

It works either way, as Ready Player One is set almost entirely inside a virtual world where anything is possible. We all know from experience (and Minecraft) that when given a sandbox nearly every person will use that power to recreate something else someone has already made.

There is a staggering amount of references here, and we scoured the latest trailer to find every single reference and character we could, although there are undoubtedly more.

Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom trailer breakdown

After a series of borderline excessive teaser videos earlier in the week, Universal Pictures unveiled the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the newest movie in the long-running franchise.

avengers infinity war breakdown 19

The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been released, and it’s a doozy. A comic book movie 10 years in the making, the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe promises to be the epic showdown we were teased ever since Thanos appeared for 0.5 seconds at the end of 2012’s Avengers.

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s mixed blessing — Infinity War is the beginning of the end, with this film and its sequel, Avengers 4, threatening to upend the MCU as we know it. But if the first Infinity War trailer is anything to go by, at least it’ll go out with a bang.

Join us on our frame-by-frame breakdown of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

It trailer bd 13

Warner Bros. has unleashed a new trailer for Andy Muschietti‘s upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic horror novel It, and it’s even scarier than the frightening trailer that preceded it.

Justice League

During Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Pictures brought some superhero action into Hall H with a brand new trailer for Justice League, introducing the world to the villain called Steppenwolf, who both walks tall and carries a big stick, or rather an axe that appears to have the power to lay waste to the world.

As the new Justice League poster points out, you can’t save the world alone, and we certainly can’t let the new trailer go by without taking a cue from Aquaman and making a deep dive into what this footage tells us about the first big screen union of these DC Comics superheroes. So come with us as we deliver a Justice League trailer breakdown. Read More »
