star trek beyond marketing

Star Trek Beyond opens in just a few days and a new TV spot has spoiled one of the film’s biggest twists. In other words, you probably shouldn’t watch that new TV spot. I highly recommend not watching that new TV spot. And now Simon Pegg, the co-writer of the film and the man wearing chief engineer Montgomery Scott’s red uniform, has made it clear that you shouldn’t watch this new TV spot. This may have the opposite effect and entice you into actually watching this new TV spot, but hey, at least we’re trying here. At the very least, now you know exactly what you’re getting into here rather than blindly stumbling into a 30 second advertisement that blatantly gives away a third act reveal.

Star Trek Beyond TV Spot

In just a couple days, fans will get to see Star Trek Beyond in theaters. Some will be lucky enough to attend the premiere at Comic-Con on Wednesday night while others can see it if they’re able to check out the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres that same day. Otherwise, Thursday night will bring the first nationwide screenings of the movie so we can all see if the early buzz on the sequel is right on the money.

In the meantime, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has arrived and it reveals an interesting detail about the villain played by Idris Elba. However, if you’re looking to go into the sequel knowing as little as possible, this could be considered a spoiler, so we’ve saved this reveal for after the jump. Read More »

rogue one video breakdown

By now, you’ve probably watched the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sizzle reel that premiered at Star Wars Celebration. Heck, maybe you’ve watched it twice. Three times. But did you go through it frame-by-frame and pick out every exhausting detail like an insane person? Because I did. And I did it all for you. Let’s take a look, shall we?

And please note that there are no direct spoilers here, but I ask questions and come to conclusion that could be seen as spoiler-ish. So use your best judgment here.

rogue one behind the scenes

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the thousands of fans who piled into Hall H for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel expected to see a new trailer for the most eagerly anticipated film of 2015. Instead, director J.J. Abrams revealed that they weren’t ready to unveil a new trailer…but they had something else. The video they played was key to energizing the narrative around The Force Awakens, a movie that was, at the time, surrounded by mixed buzz and engendering uneasy feelings amongst the most devoted fans. A look behind the scenes of the film proved to be just as powerful as a traditional preview, touching every nostalgic note while promising a move to the future.

Now, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is attempting a similar narrative at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in London. While just about everyone was expecting a new trailer for director Gareth Edwards‘ new movie to arrive with the film’s panel, Lucasfilm has instead released a video that takes us behind the curtain, offering tantalizing glimpses at the film’s set and the scale of this ambitious production.

pete's dragon clips

Director David Lowery is probably doing something right with his upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon because I’m not a fan of the 1977 original in the slightest but I fully intend to see the new version in its opening weekend. Maybe my soft spot for tales of isolated youngsters finding families is showing, or maybe I’m just a sucker for dragons, but everything we’ve seen from this movie looks charming and sweet and the right shade of adventurous.

Two new clips from the film have arrived online and they haven’t changed my mind. This looks like it could be one of 2016’s better family movies.

On the latest installment of The Star Wars Show, the first Star Wars Rebels season 3 clip debuted, and with it comes the reveal of a whole new look for the Jedi apprentice Ezra Bridger, as well as some new weapons too. Watch the clip after the jump. Read More »

Sausage Party Morning Show

In show business, pretty much any publicity is good publicity. And in the case of the marketing for Sausage Party, it looks like Sony Pictures is making some weird choices in their efforts to promote the R-rated animated comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. We’ve seen red band trailers, a Walt Disney inspired promo and an Independence Day PSA, but this latest video promoting the movie is the weirdest as it sees costumed character versions of Frank the hot dog and Brenda with the good buns appearing on a morning talk show.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Clip: Scotty Meets Jaylah

star trek beyond clip

Now that 2009’s Star Trek re-introduced the classic Enterprise crew and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness did everything in its power to wreck them, Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond has a bold new task before it: introducing new characters and allowing them to stand out amidst a cast of familiar faces and iconic names. We’ll hopefully get a memorable new adversary in Idris Elba‘s Krall and as this new clip from the film seems to indicate, Sofia Boutella‘s Jaylah certainly appears to be a unique addition to the ensemble.

Jason Bourne Clips

The summer of sequels is coming to an end later this month with Star Trek Beyond and Jason Bourne arriving late this month. However, we could probably call Suicide Squad as much of a sequel as it is a spin-off to start a new franchise, so maybe it’s coming to an end at the beginning of August. Anyway, closing out July will be the return of Matt Damon as the covert operative with the worst memory ever, and three new Jason Bourne clips give us a taste of what’s in store for the Treadstone assassin this time.
