UK telecommunications services provider O2 has begun airing a new commercial which features our old trusty droid friends R2-D2 and C3PO, who are wandering the desert planet of Jakku in hopes of finding help. And help they find, in the form of BB-8, the new droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The footage does not appear to be from the movie itself, but any droid-fanatics out there might find themselves in cuteness overload watching this new television spot. Hit the jump to see R2-D2 and C-3PO meet BB-8.

As excited as we are to see Han, Chewie, and Leia (and presumably Luke, whenever we get around to seeing him) back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re also dying to spend some quality time with the new heroes of the franchise. Like Finn, the young stormtrooper played by John Boyega. His was the very first face we saw in the very first teaser trailer for the movie, but a year later, there’s a whole lot we still don’t know about him.
So it’s a pleasure to get to know him a tiny bit better today, as a new TV spot shines a light on this brand-new badass. Don’t worry — your other faves, like BB-8, make appearances too. Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Finn spot after the jump. Read More »
Not too long ago, the first trailer for the fantasy video game adaptation Warcraft debuted, and while there’s some stunning visual effects and imagery on display, it looks like it might be a hard sell to general audiences who aren’t fans of the game. But considering how hard it is to please video game fans when a film adaptation of their favorite game comes together, they mostly seem to be pleased with how the movies seems to have turned out. You’ll understand why when you see some shots from the trailer compared to the World of Warcraft video game.
In addition, there’s an international Warcraft TV spot for you to check out. Read More »
If the new footage in last week’s international trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens simply wasn’t enough, we have some good news. An official The Force Awakens TV spot has just popped up online with several bits of new footage and dialogue not seen in any of the previous trailers.
New footage includes some action shots Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), new voiceover from Maz Kanata, the motion-capture character played by Lupita Nyong’o, and new scenes of the aerial battle between the Resistance and the First Order. Check it out! Read More »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens might be at the top of everyone’s mind today, but Sony would really appreciate it if you tried to remember it’s not the only new installment of a long-running action franchise coming this fall. There’s also Spectre — the 24th Bond film, the fourth one starring Daniel Craig, and the second one directed by Sam Mendes.
To help remind you of that fact, the studio has just released a whole bunch of new odds and ends from the film. Maybe the most intriguing piece is an in-depth featurette on the music of Spectre, with theme song singer Sam Smith, but there’s also a new TV spot and a new clip for your enjoyment. See it all after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
This winter brings the promising spin-off Creed, which is also a spiritual sequel of sorts to the iconic Rocky franchise that Sylvester Stallone has kept going for decades. Michael B. Jordan plays the son of the late Apollo Creed, one of Rocky’s most formidable opponents, and he’s anxious to get in the ring and follow in his footsteps (though hopefully without dying).
A new TV spot has just popped up online showing Rocky training the young new boxer Adonis Creed, but then there’s a little tease of one particular point of drama in the movie. In this Creed TV spot, it appears Rocky isn’t exactly in the best shape and may spend a little time in the hospital. Would this spin-off be so bold as to kill him off and truly pass the torch to Michael B. Jordan? Read More »
There is a marked difference between the tough, squinting James Bond played by Daniel Craig and the urbane, quippy Bond incarnated by Roger Moore in seven films released between 1973 and 1985. The two get a little closer, however, in this long James Bond Heineken spot, which vaguely promotes the new film Spectre and definitely promotes the beer.
What you get in this 90-second spot is a boat-based chase scene built out of footage from Spectre with a bunch of ad-agency created footage of a woman whose waterskiing plans are derailed by Bond’s activities, turning her into a not-unwilling beer delivery service.
It’s goofy and cheesy. It’s also kind of fun thanks to the ingenuity of adding the commercial aspects to what I suppose are Spectre shots created for a very different purpose, and also because this is the closest we’re ever likely to see Daniel Craig getting to the winking, colorful Bond of years past.

It may only be a bit of new footage, but the stuff that graces this new Spectre TV spot is a good taste of this fall’s new James Bond film, the 24th in the series. (Not counting the two “unauthorized” films, the 1967 Casino Royale and 1983’s Never Say Never Again.)
A brief TV spot like this might be the best way to get a look at the new movie, as this edit is a blast of action and intriguing looks at the characters, from Daniel Craig as Bond, to Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and the shadowy Christoph Waltz as the villain we all assume to be some version of Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
The film also features Lea Seydoux (seen on the banner image above), Monica Belucci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Andrew Scott. Have a look at the brisk new spot after the break. Read More »
