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 »
