The House TV Spots

In just a couple weeks, The House will be open for business as the R-rated comedy starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler hits theaters. The film follows two suburban parents faced with the prospect of having no money to send their daughter to college, so their friend Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) helps them open an illegal, underground casino in his house for a month in order to make enough money to afford tuition.

Instead of just quickly making the money, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler take to the casino business like a couple characters in a Martin Scorsese movie, and when the casino starts getting the attention of local authorities and crime bosses, they find that they’re completely out of their league. You can see more of the shenanigans in the comedy in The House TV spots, now featuring Jeremy Renner. Read More »

DuckTales

If you were a kid growing up in the ’80s and ’90s with access to American television, I’d guess there’s about a 50% chance that you know the DuckTales theme song by heart. Here’s how ubiquitous it was: I didn’t even watch the show and I still somehow managed to absorb every word of it.

Good news for those who anyone who still has that kicking around in your head after all these years: you don’t have to relearn any lyrics for the new version of DuckTales that’s coming to Disney XD. The network has released the new main titles of the show, which features an updated take on the classic theme song, as well as an official premiere date for when Scrooge, Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie will be heading to the small screen.

Spider-Man Homecoming featurette

Tom Holland’s spunky, excitable Spider-Man swings back into theaters next month in a brand new cinematic adventure, but anyone who’s even remotely been paying attention knows that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man is going to play a big part in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Today, Downey took to Twitter to share a new featurette for the film that hones in on the mentor/mentee relationship between the two superheroes, so if this morning’s 22-minute fan’s guide didn’t satiate your thirst for all things Spidey, take a nice, cool sip of this video and see if that does the trick.

Baby Driver Music Featurette

Not long ago, we saw the full soundtrack list for Edgar Wright‘s latest film, the music-driven thriller Baby Driver. Since the music has been built up as an integral part of the movie (which has been described as a car chase musical), it provided insight into what we could expect from the movie. Thanks to a new featurette, we have an even better understanding of just how important music is to driving the film forward (no pun in tended), as Ansel Elgort‘s titular character needs beats thumping in his ears in order to get by in the world.

For anyone who has been curious to see how music is expertly used in Baby Driver, this is the video you’ve been waiting for. You’ll see what we’re talking about in the Baby Driver music featurette below. Read More »

Cars 3 Demolition Derby Clip

This week brings Pixar Animation’s Cars 3 to theaters, and while the excitement might not be high since the anthropomorphic vehicle franchise is largely regarded as the animation studio’s weakest series, the early buzz on the sequel is that it’s easily the best of the three movies. A new clip from Cars 3 has arrived online, introducing a new character who makes her debut in a sequence that is easily one of the most exciting and cool we’ve seen in the Cars universe.

Watch the Cars 3 demolition derby clip below…and see if you notice a certain Pixar Easter egg. Read More »

spider man homecoming nba finals

Some of the most cringeworthy parts of summer blockbuster season are the weak marketing tie-ins. You know what I’m talking about: that Captain America: Civil War trailer that was actually a glorified Audi car commercial and that ill-advised Dunkirk TV spot that equated the horrors of war with basketball.

But when it comes to cross-marketing promotions, the Spider-Man: Homecoming NBA Finals TV spots actually aren’t that bad. In fact, they’re kinda’ delightful. And now, we can see the full extended spot that follows Peter Parker’s mini-adventures as he just tries to get to Mr. Stark’s game-watching party.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

Over the weekend, Electronic Arts unveiled the official gameplay trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2, revealing the first footage from inside the game itself, and it’s intense.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer primarily shows off the battle in Theed, the royal city from Naboo where we met Queen Amidala in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Battle droids and Clone Troopers battle across the city as droid fighters and Naboo starfighters battle above. Then things get really crazy when Darth Maul shows up and stars spinning around his double-bladed lightsaber.

Outside of the trailer, there were a couple more big announcements about the game coming to consoles this fall, including a huge change in how players will get DLC, and the reveal of some more major characters from the saga being playable in the game. Read More »

Game of Thrones featurette

In many ways, HBO’s Game of Thrones and Spike’s upcoming take on Stephen King’s The Mist couldn’t be more different. One is a mega-popular fantasy series that’s about to enter its home stretch of episodes, while the other is a nascent adaptation that’s just preparing to take its first steps. But hey, here’s at least one way they’re similar: they both recently released behind-the-scenes featurettes promoting their new seasons. Check them out below.
